API Technologies Corp. and RFMW Ltd. Announce Expanded Distribution Agreement: Weinschel brand products now available through distribution

ORLANDO, Fla. and SAN JOSE, California – September 3, 2015 – API Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:ATNY) ("API" or the "Company") today announced an expanded worldwide distribution agreement with RF and microwave components distributor, RFMW Ltd. The agreement adds Weinschel brand products, including a full line of attenuators, terminations, adapters and connectors, splitters and dividers, phase shifters, programmable attenuators, and RF distribution products, to the API’s growing list of products available through distribution.

The Weinschel products join API’s full line of standard, configurable, and custom RF, microwave, and microelectronics products available through RFMW, which currently includes antennas, power amplifiers, high performance filters, thin film chip resistors, mixers, and passive components. The Weinschel product offering, combined with the Inmet product offering, extends the range of passive component solutions offered by RFMW. Weinschel and Inmet were acquired by API Technologies from Cobham in June of this year.

Founded more than sixty years ago, Weinschel was the first company to design and manufacture commercially available coaxial attenuators. Since that time, the product line has expanded to include advanced components and subsystems for wireless, space, defense, test and measurement, and broadband applications. Featured products include fixed attenuators, variable attenuators, programmable attenuators, digitally switched attenuators, high power terminations, resistive splitters and dividers, phase shifters, and RF distribution products. Featured brands include Planar Blind-Mate® and Planar Crown® connectors systems and SmartStep® attenuation subsystems.

“The Weinschel brand has always been synonymous with engineering excellence and superior quality. Making these products available to global customers via RFMW’s worldwide sales channel means more engineers can leverage Weinschel products to optimize wireless communication, satellite, and defense engineering projects,” said Mike Valo, North American Distributor Sales Manager, API Technologies Corp.

“We look forward to building on our successful partnership and promoting the Weinschel brand products to a new audience of global customers,” Joel Levine, President and CEO of RFMW.
