EBITDA was $2.1 million for the first six months of 2006 compared to $4.0 million for the same period in 2005.Commenting on the Company’s second quarter performance, Thomas Brooker, President and Chief Executive Officer of Nashua, said, “The declines in sales, margin and net income in the second quarter are disappointing and reflect intense competition in the industry and the effect of actions taken by Nashua to position the Company to deliver improved performance. The decline in income in the second quarter resulted partially from costs associated with the consolidation of Label manufacturing operations into Florida, Tennessee and Nebraska facilities. This project is expected to be completed by the end of the third quarter. In addition, we incurred incremental one-time costs associated with the consolidation of our coated paper manufacturing into a smaller space at the Merrimack, New Hampshire facility and severance and incremental pension costs associated with the Company’s defined benefit plans. Liquidation of assets of Nashua’s previously-owned toner business continued during the second quarter, enabling the Company to reduce bank debt by approximately $5 million since December 31, 2005.”Nashua entered into a non-binding letter of intent for the sale of the Merrimack, New Hampshire facilities and currently is negotiating a purchase and sale agreement as well as a lease agreement for space in Merrimack. There is no guarantee that the sale will close. Also, Nashua has entered into a purchase and sale agreement for the sale of Company property in Nashua, New Hampshire for $2.0 million, which is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2006.
