"This was an extremely exciting year for API Nanotronics. Through the acquisition of National Hybrid, we doubled the revenues of the Company on a pro forma basis and set the foundation for our transition from a supplier of traditional electronics to a one-stop advanced design and manufacturing partner to the defense, communications and aviation industries," said Phillip DeZwirek, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of API Nanotronics Inc. "In addition, the hiring of Dr. Martin Moskovits as Chief Technology Officer and the recent acquisition of the assets of NanoOpto Corp. position API as a leader in the field of Nanotechnology. Looking to the year ahead, we expect these actions to begin to deliver tangible results for the company and our shareholders."

Operational Highlights

-- On November 6, 2006, API successfully completed its merger with
Rubincon Ventures Inc.;
-- On January 24, 2007, API acquired all the shares of the National
Hybrid Group, the acquisition on a pro forma basis helped double revenues
and has added significant top Military and Defense customers to API's
already impressive list;

offering;
-- On May 7, 2007, Nanotechnology pioneer, Dr. Martin Moskovits, was

smallest 1553 transceiver in a plastic ball-grid array package;
-- During 2007, API secured a design win for a motor controller for
landing gear on the world's most advanced commercial aircraft.


Subsequent Events

-- In July 2007, the Company acquired the assets of NanoOpto Corp. This
acquisition provides API with state-of-the-art intellectual property and
facilities, positioning the Company as a top tier Nanotechnology research
and manufacturing partner to government and industry.
-- API recently negotiated employment contracts with a number of key
technical personnel from NanoOpto Corp. signalling the strong continued
growth of API's technological prowess as a major player in Nanotechnology.
