Compass Diversified Trust Releases First Quarter 2006 Results On Form 10Q

WESTPORT, CT (June 12, 2006) – Compass Diversified Trust (NASDAQ: CODI) today announced that it has filed its Form 10Q with the Securities and Exchange Commission for the quarter ended March 31, 2006. This filing includes management's discussion and analysis of the operating results of the four initially acquired businesses during the quarter, versus the quarter ended March 31, 2005. Both of these periods were prior to the acquisition of these businesses on May 16, 2006 in connection with its IPO.

Each of the initial businesses experienced growth in revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2006 versus the comparable period for 2005. Because these businesses were acquired subsequent to March 31, 2006, no analyst / investor conference call will be held. Compass Diversified Trust plans to institute quarterly conference calls commencing with its June 30, 2006 earnings.
