Nanophase Achieves Record Fourth Quarter and 2006 Revenue

ROMEOVILLE, IL | Posted on January 17th, 2007

For the year ending December 31, 2006, total revenues were approximately $9.0 million, or 32% year-over-year revenue growth compared to 2005, and represents the highest annual revenue in the Company's history.

"2006 was a solid year for Nanophase with record revenue quarters year- over-year for each quarter of 2006 and continues the robust product revenue growth the Company began in 2005," noted Joseph Cross, Nanophase's President and CEO. "During the last 24 months, Nanophase has doubled annual
product revenue. While some of the Company's current products tend to be somewhat seasonal, such as sunscreens -- especially for the U.S. market, and stronger in the first half of the year, new products in suncare for the European and Asian markets, architectural coatings, and nanomaterial
products for coatings and plastics are growing and are anticipated to continue building second half revenues over time.

"Progress was made in this area during 2006: first half product revenues increased about 20% year-over-year, while second half product revenues increased 51%. During 2006 we introduced new suncare and coatings products with our market partners and believe that we have positioned current and new business, along with new business opportunities, to support continued revenue growth during 2007."
