SpaceDev Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2007 Results

Revenue Increases 26%, Net Income Increases by Over $100K, EBITDA Increases 177%

POWAY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 05/14/07 -- SpaceDev, Inc. (OTCBB: SPDV) reported its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2007 with revenue of over $9.0 million, net income of over $100,000 and EBITDA of over $640,000.

"This was our strongest quarter since our merger with Starsys Research in the first quarter of 2006," said Mark N. Sirangelo, SpaceDev Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board. "The acquisition and subsequent infrastructure investment fundamentally expanded our business profile and provided us with a substantial manufacturing operation. This is a critical factor to our growth in the coming years giving us the ability to successfully take on even more exciting programs and projects. Our core operations continue to perform and we are on track in executing our plan."

The Company's primary financial information is shown below, comparing the first quarter of 2006, to the first quarter of 2007:

Revenue -- SpaceDev reported revenue of approximately $9.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2007, an increase of approximately $1.9 million, or 25%, from the approximate $7.2 million in revenue reported for the same period in 2006.

Income from Operations -- The Company realized income from operations of approximately $221,000 in the first quarter of 2007, which included approximately $105,000 for stock option expense, compared to an operating loss of $46,000 for the same three months in 2006, which included approximately $91,000 for stock option expense. The Company implemented SFAS No. 123R in the first quarter of 2006.

During the first quarter of 2007, the Company's EBITDA increased to approximately $642,000, or 7.1% of net sales, compared to an EBITDA of $192,000, or 2.7% of net sales, for the same quarter in 2006.

Net Income -- Net income for the 2007 first quarter was approximately $109,000, compared to approximately $7,000 for the same period in 2006 with ($0.00) earnings per share for both quarters.

"We kept our focus this quarter on driving certain fixed price development contracts towards completion, as well as improving overall program efficiency and profitability," stated SpaceDev President and Chief Financial Officer, Richard B. Slansky. "We have begun to see some tangible improvements from our actions related to the turn-around of Starsys and growth of our combined company. We have completed the first phase of our major relocation and expansion of our production facilities with the second phase scheduled to complete in the 2nd quarter of this year. This will assist in continuing to drive operating efficiencies and profitability, as well as provide additional capacity for our future growth plans."

Cash Position -- At March 31, 2007, the Company's cash position, which included cash reserves and cash available for investment, was approximately $3.5 million compared to approximately $1.4 million at December 31, 2006, an increase of approximately $2.4 million.

This release contains disclosure of EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure within the meaning of Regulation G promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Because not every company defines EBITDA in the same way, our EBITDA figures may not be fully comparable to those reported by other companies. We define EBITDA as net income before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock option expense, and gain on our 2003 building sale. The Company believes that EBITDA provides an important additional perspective on its operating results, its ability to service its long-term obligations, its ability to fund continuing growth, and its ability to continue as a going concern. The Company's management regularly evaluates its progress based on EBITDA. The Company believes that EBITDA, while providing useful information, should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to other financial measures determined under GAAP, such as net income or loss (as an indicator of operating performance) or cash flow (as a measure of liquidity).
