CALABASAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 2, 2006--During a webcast on May 1, 2006, regarding the financial results of National Technical Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:NTSC) for the fiscal year and fourth quarter ended January 31, 2006, in response to a question from the audience, Dr. Jack Lin, Chairman of the Board, informed the listeners that the company expects to put a 120 acre portion of its Santa Clarita facility on the market within the year and to use the proceeds of the sale to finance acquisitions. The questioner suggested that he thought 150 acres of the property was conservatively worth $52 million to which Dr. Lin responded that the saleable portion was 120 acres and that the questioner's number was "high" due to certain conditions existing on the land and the fact that it is raw, ungraded land, but he otherwise declined to provide a value.
