of the management team since she joined the company,” said Michael E. Kearney,
SPACEHAB’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “She has played a crucial
role in shaping our capital structure, building a solid financial team, and
managing through the recent challenges. Her efforts have been a key part of
the Company and her presence will be missed. We are pleased she will continue
working with us during the transition and we wish her the best of luck.”

Ms. Pulzone will continue as an advisor with the Company through June 30,
2004 and will assist with the transition of the financial operations to its
headquarters in Houston. The Company has initiated a search for a new Chief
Financial Officer to be based in Houston.
