Emtec Announces Correction to Previously Reported Net Income for the Quarter Ended June 30, 2003

Aug 18, 2003, 01:00 ET from Emtec, Inc.

    MT. LAUREL, N.J., Aug. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Emtec, Inc.
 (OTC Bulletin Board:   ETEC) announced today that its net income for the quarter
 ended June 30, 2003 had increased by 213% to $357,891 or $0.05 per share, as
 contrasted with the comparable 2002 period. It had previously reported an
 increase of 364%, to $530,539 or $.07 per share.
     Emtec also announced that its sales, general and administrative expenses
 increased by 7.78%, or $231,328, to $3.21 million for the quarter ended June
 30, 2003 rather than by 1.19%. or $35,343 to $3.01 million, as previously
 reported. Without the acquisitions of certain assets of Acentra Technologies,
 Inc. and Turnkey Computer Systems, Inc., the Company's sales, general and
 administrative expenses would have been decreased by approximately 18.49%, or
 $549,000, rather than the previously reported increase of 18.37% or $540,000.
     Commenting on the foregoing, Sam Bhatt, Emtec's Vice President of Finance,
 stated that these corrections were attributable to management's failure to
 take into account increased EBITDA of Emtec's government division for this
 period, which augmented potential bonus compensation for three prior owners of
 Acentra Technologies, Inc., one of them is an employee of Emtec.
