PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CPI International, Inc. (Nasdaq: CPII), the parent company of Communications & Power Industries, Inc., a leading provider of microwave, radio frequency, power and control solutions for critical defense, communications, medical, scientific and other applications, will be holding meetings with investors in two cities next week. Joe Caldarelli, chief executive officer, and Joel Littman, chief financial officer, will be meeting with investors in New York and Boston on September 11 through September 13, 2006.

In conjunction with these meetings, CPI International is confirming the high-level guidance for the current quarter that the company previously discussed on its August 15, 2006 conference call with investors. Traditionally, CPI International's financial results in the second and third quarters of a fiscal year are stronger than its financial results in the first and fourth quarters of the year. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006, however, CPI International expects its revenue, EBITDA and pre-tax income results to be in line with the company's results for those measures in the first three quarters of fiscal 2006. The company also expects its financial results in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006 to be higher than its financial results in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2005.
