LEESBURG, Va., Nov. 10, 2004 -- Precision Auto Care, Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: PACI) announced its financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year ending June 30, 2005.

The Company's President, Robert Falconi, stated, "PACI continues to perform well. This is the eighth consecutive quarter that the Company's operating results have been profitable. Operating profits were very close to $1 million due in large part to the sale of the rights to the Seattle market and due to the fact that the Company's day to day operating model works. I have every reason to believe that the Company will stay profitable throughout FY05."
Lou Brown, Chairman and CEO of PACI, said, "The Board of Directors is very pleased with the Company's first quarter operating results. PACI's balance sheet gets stronger every quarter even as the Company continues to invest in growth."
