Revenues for the second quarter ended January 31, 2008, were
$99,400,000, compared with the prior year’s second quarter revenues of
$88,358,000, an increase of $11,042,000, or 12%. On a GAAP basis, net
income for the second quarter was $7,147,000, or $0.54 per diluted
share, compared with a net income of $5,420,000, or $0.39 per diluted
share, for the prior year’s second quarter.

On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the second quarter ended
January 31, 2008, was $7,831,000, or $0.59 per diluted share, compared
to a net income of $6,449,000, or $0.46 per diluted share, for the
prior year’s second quarter.

Revenues for the six months ended January 31, 2008, were
$193,601,000, compared with the prior year’s first six-month revenues
of $163,960,000, an increase of $29,641,000, or 18%. On a GAAP basis,
net income for the six months ended January 31, 2008, was $13,535,000,
or $1.02 per diluted share, compared with a net income of $60,000, or
$0.00 per diluted share, for the prior year’s first six months. The
six months ended January 31, 2007, included pre-tax asset impairment
charges of $9,705,000 associated with the Company’s digital
radiography systems business.

On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the six months ended January
31, 2008, was $14,890,000, or $1.12 per diluted share, compared to a
net income of $8,065,000, or $0.58 per diluted share, for the prior
year’s first six months.

Non-GAAP net income and other non-GAAP financial measures exclude
the impact of certain items. A description of these non-GAAP financial
measures and a reconciliation of all GAAP to non-GAAP financial
measures are presented in the financial tables at the end of this news
release.

President and CEO Jim Green said, “Our medical business continued
to show strong growth in the second quarter. Medical technology
revenues were up 16% over the prior second quarter, and up 9% from the
first quarter of fiscal year 2008. Security technology revenues were
down 7% from a year earlier due primarily to a decline in engineering
revenues, but security pre-tax income was $1,384,000, compared to a
loss of $242,000 a year earlier. We have made substantial progress
bringing our cost structure in line with our security business
revenues.”

Medical imaging revenues for the second quarter were $53,620,000,
up more than 15% over the prior year’s second quarter. The growth was
primarily due to an increased demand for the Company’s advanced
subsystems for CT, including multislice DASs and Data Management
Systems (DMSs), which integrate DASs with X-ray detectors. Revenues
for patient monitors and OEM ultrasound probes and transducers were
also up relative to last year’s second quarter. Revenues from power
systems for MRI were flat, and Medical CT revenues were down due to a
short-term delay in supplier shipments. Digital Radiography revenues
were $5,767,000, up from $3,967,000 in the prior second quarter, due
in part to initial ramp up of flat-panel digital mammography detectors
by our Anrad subsidiary. Revenues for our B-K Medical subsidiary,
specializing in clinical ultrasound, were $24,698,000, up over the
prior year due primarily to changes in foreign exchange rates.

Security technology revenues for the quarter were $12,875,000,
down slightly from a year earlier. During the quarter, the Company
shipped 18 EXplosive Assessment Computed Tomography (EXACT®) systems
to L-3 Communications, the same quantity shipped during the second
quarter of fiscal 2007. The slight decrease in revenues was due to a
decline in engineering revenues. Just after the close of the quarter,
Analogic announced that it had received a $15 million order from L-3
for EXACT systems to begin shipping in June 2008.

Green added that the recent agreement to acquire Copley Controls
Corporation, a leading OEM supplier of gradient amplifiers for MRI
systems and of precision motion control systems, announced after the
close of the quarter, was another major step forward for the Company.
“The addition of Copley Controls will strongly complement our core
medical business. With Copley’s leading-edge technology in high-field
gradient amplifiers, we will be able to expand our product offerings
to our OEM customers, better address some significant emerging MRI
opportunities in Asia, and further enhance our position as a leading
OEM supplier of high-value medical imaging subsystems.”

Optimistic regarding continuing growth, Green noted that at the
annual Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) meeting in
November 2007 both Siemens and Philips introduced top-of-the-line
full-field digital mammography systems that incorporate Anrad’s
advanced digital flat-panel detectors. “We expect that production of
these major new systems will ramp up over the next several quarters.
Their introduction should generate significant growth in digital
mammography and in the demand for Anrad’s proprietary
amorphous-Selenium-based digital mammography detectors over the next
several years.”

Green added, “We expect our COBRA® automatic explosives and
weapons detection system for aircraft passenger checkpoints to be
qualified for sale by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration
(TSA) within the next several months. Before the end of the fiscal
year we expect to begin shipping units under the Indefinite Delivery
Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) order received from the TSA last October.
Concurrently, we anticipate that the KING COBRA system, designed to
scan checked and checkpoint baggage at small to mid-sized airports,
will be certified within the next several months and production-ready
this summer. The XLB1100 ultra-high-speed, inline checked baggage
scanning system is expected to be certified by the TSA several months
after the KING COBRA and production-ready in calendar 2009. Subsequent
to the end of the quarter we announced an expanded relationship with
L-3 Communications, awarding them exclusive worldwide rights to market
and service the KING COBRA and the XLB1100 Auto-EDS systems for air
carrier checked-baggage applications. With the continuing growth in
our medical businesses and the new opportunities in both health and
security, I believe we are establishing the foundation for Analogic’s
long-term growth as The World Resource for Health and Security
Technology.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This presentation includes non-GAAP financial measures that are
not in accordance with, nor an alternative to, generally accepted
accounting principles and may be different from non-GAAP measures used
by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based
on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a
substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance
prepared in accordance with GAAP. They are limited in value because
they exclude charges that have a material effect on our reported
results and, therefore, should not be relied upon as the sole
financial measures to evaluate our financial results. The non-GAAP
financial measures are meant to supplement, and to be viewed in
conjunction with, GAAP financial results. An explanation and a
reconciliation of our non-GAAP measures are provided at the end of
this press release.

UNAUDITED SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION – RECONCILIATION OF GAAP TO
NON-GAAP MEASURES

The Company provides non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating
expenses, non-GAAP other (income) expense, non-GAAP income before
taxes, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share as
supplemental measures to GAAP regarding the Company’s operational
performance. These financial measures exclude the impact of certain
items and, therefore, have not been calculated in accordance with
GAAP. The adjustments to these non-GAAP financial measures, and the
basis for such adjustments, are outlined below:

Share-based compensation expense. The Company incurs expense
related to share-based compensation included in its GAAP presentation
of cost of sales, research and development, selling and marketing,
general and administrative expense. Although share-based compensation
is an expense of the Company and viewed as a form of compensation,
these expenses vary in amount from period to period, and are affected
by market forces that are difficult to predict and are not within the
control of management, such as the market price and volatility of the
Company’s shares, risk-free interest rates, the expected term and
forfeiture rates of the awards. In accordance with SFAS No. 123R,
share-based compensation expense is calculated as of the grant date of
each share-based award, and generally cannot be changed or influenced
by management after the grant date. Management believes that exclusion
of these expenses allows comparisons of operating results that are
consistent between periods and allows comparisons of the Company’s
operating results to those of other companies that disclose non-GAAP
financial measures that exclude share-based compensation.

Executive transition expenses. In November 2006, John W. Wood Jr.
resigned as President of the Company and was temporarily replaced by
Bernard M. Gordon, who was appointed as our Executive Chairman, in
which capacity he served as both our principal executive officer and
Chairman of the Board. James W. Green was appointed as our President
and CEO on May 21, 2007, replacing Mr. Gordon as our principal
executive officer. Since his arrival Mr. Green has made and is
continuing to make a number of changes in the senior leadership team
reporting to him. As such, the Company has incurred charges for
severance, executive search, relocation and other related expenses.
Management believes these charges should be excluded from the non-GAAP
results because they are one-time items not associated with the
ongoing operations of the business.

Acquisition related expenses. The Company incurs amortization of
intangibles and other expenses related to acquisitions it has made in
recent years. The intangible assets are valued at the time of
acquisition, are then amortized over a period of several years after
the acquisition and generally cannot be changed or influenced by
management after the acquisition. Management believes that exclusion
of these expenses allows comparisons of operating results that are
consistent over time for both our newly acquired and long-held
businesses.

Asset impairment charges. As a result of continuing losses in its
Digital Radiography business and the related business outlook, the
Company evaluated the net realizability of all of the related assets
at October 31, 2006. As a result, the Company recorded an asset
impairment charge of $9,705,000 associated with the write-down of the
Company’s Digital Radiography system business assets to their
estimated fair values as a group based upon the present value of
estimated future cash flows of the business. Of the $9,705,000 asset
impairment charges, $8,625,000 was recorded to cost of sales and
$1,080,000 was recorded to operating expenses. Management believes
these charges should be excluded from the non-GAAP results because
they are one-time items not associated with the ongoing operations of
the business.

Gain on sale of investments and other. During the three months
ended October 31, 2007, the Company received $84,000 as an initial
escrow payment related to the Q4 2007 sale of its interest in
Bio-Imaging Research, which it recorded as other income. On November
1, 2006, the Company sold certain assets of SKY and its obligation to
service sold products for a purchase price of $405,000. The $405,000
includes $225,000 in cash paid at closing, $150,000 in cash paid after
the closing for additional inventory, and the assumption of $30,000 in
liabilities. The Company recorded a gain of $205,000 from the sale in
the three and six months ended January 31, 2007. On December 7, 2007,
the Company received $555,000 from its insurance company as
reimbursement for legal fees incurred in relation to an
indemnification matter related to the Company’s sale of its
wholly-owned subsidiary Camtronics Medical Systems, Ltd. in November
2005. The $555,000 gain was recorded as other income during the three
months and six months ended January 31, 2008. These gains have been
presented as a non-GAAP item for that period.

Adjustments for related tax impact. Finally, for purposes of
calculating non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings (losses)
per share, management adjusts the provision (benefit) for income taxes
to tax effect the non-GAAP adjustments described above as they have a
significant impact on the Company’s income tax provision (benefit).

Management excludes the above described expenses and their related
tax impact in evaluating short-term and long-term operating trends in
the Company’s operations, and allocating resources to various
initiatives and operational requirements. The Company believes that
these non-GAAP financial adjustments are useful to investors because
they allow investors to evaluate the effectiveness of the methodology
and information used by management in its financial and operational
decision-making.

These non-GAAP financial measures have not been prepared in
accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered in isolation or as
a substitute for financial information provided in accordance with
GAAP. Further, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be computed
in the same manner as similarly titled measures used by other
companies.

The following table reconciles the non-GAAP financial measures to
their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
