Alanco Completes $4.8 Million Equity Financing

(Scottsdale, AZ – August 22, 2007) – Alanco Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALAN), a leading provider of wireless tracking and asset management solutions, today announced completion of an equity financing to private investors totaling $4.8 million, net of expenses. The Company sold 2,454,000 Class A common shares and issued 981,600 three-year warrants with an exercise price of $3.00. Approximately $800,000 of the financing proceeds was used to repay long-term debt, with the balance to be utilized for working capital to fund the Company’s expansion.

Robert R. Kauffman, Alanco Chairman and CEO, commented, “Successful completion of this new equity financing, particularly within context of the recent market weakness, demonstrates a high level of investor confidence in our business plan and future prospects. We expect that the additional working capital provided by this financing will enable us to achieve positive monthly operating cash flow during the second half of the current fiscal year, ending June 30, 2008, as prelude to a profitable fiscal 2009.”
