FRISBY TECHNOLOGIES, INC. (NASDAQ - FRIZ), the developer of patented ComforTemp® DCC(TM), the leading brand of dynamic climate control materials, today announced that revenues in the first quarter of 2000 increased to $2.5 million from $1.0 million for the first quarter of 1999, representing an increase of 140%. Product sales nearly tripled to $2.4 million of the total sales for the quarter as compared to $831,000 in the prior period. The net loss in the quarter was $1.3 million or $(0.23) per diluted share versus a net loss of $1.4 million or $(0.27) per diluted share in the first quarter of 1999. The decline in loss during the current year results from increasing sales while holding expenses fairly constant.

Recent business developments at Frisby Technologies include:

The formation of Schoeller Frisby Technologies GmbH, a Switzerland-based joint venture between Frisby Technologies and Schoeller Textil AG, which contributed significantly to the sales for the quarter. Schoeller Frisby Technologies GmbH is the exclusive marketer, seller and distributor of ComforTemp brand foams and fabrics and schoeller®-ComforTemp® textiles to all markets in Europe and to the U.S.-based fashion industry.

Frisby Technologies and Sadesa, one of the world's largest tanneries, developed a process to incorporate ComforTemp into leather footwear products manufactured by Sadesa under the new Thermico(TM) with Comfor Temp DCC brand. Timberland Company and Rocky Shoes and Boots, Inc. will feature new lines containing these products in the fall of 2000.

Bridgestone Corporation, one of the world's top manufacturers of tires and a producer of foam materials for a diverse customer base in the home furnishings and automotive sectors, has begun the joint product development and test marketing of products containing ComforTemp in the Japanese and Asian markets.

Wolverine World Wide, the leading global manufacturer and marketer of branded non-athletic footwear for men, women and children, will introduce selected fall 2000 styles under the Wolverine, Wolverine Sport, Harley Davidson, Bates and HyTest names that will feature ComforTemp materials.

In commenting on the quarter, Greg Frisby, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer stated, "As we continue to aggressively market the ComforTemp brand through our expanding roster of licensees and partners in key markets around the globe, the success of this strategy can be measured by revenue growth at the Company.
