          Bonso Electronics Reports Mixed Results for the First Quarter

HONG KONG, Aug. 22 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Bonso Electronics
International Inc, (Nasdaq: BNSO - News) a designer and manufacturer of sensor
based and communications products, today announced financial results for the
first quarter ended 30 June 2005.

The company reported sales of $18,150,000 and net earnings of $647,000 or 12
cents per share (diluted) for the three months period ended 30 June 2005. This
represents an increase of 0.6 % in sales and a decrease of 6.6 % in net income
as compared to sales of $18,041,000 and net income of $693,000 or 12 cents per
share (diluted) posted during the same period last year.

Sensor based product sales surpassed last year's volume but telecommunication
product sales were down approximately 2% from last year's first quarter. We
anticipate that telecommunications product sales will continue to be soft in the
short-term future.

Our gross profit margin reduced 0.3 percent based on increases in material and
labor costs and operation expense levels increased approximately 4 percent
primarily as a result of expansion of the branded sales operations in North
America. The result was that net income dropped approximately $46,000 from last
year's first quarter.

George O'Leary, President and Chief Executive Officer said "Going forward, our
primary focus will be on doing more for our existing customers and to show
greater initiative in proposing solutions to new potential customers in our
niche markets of sensor based and telecommunication products. We have developed
several new sensor based products that are being well received by new potential
OEM customers and have also expanded our branded product offerings in both North
America and Europe "We intend to continue to make efforts to continue the
progress we have made in strengthening our Balance Sheet. Our cash position at
the end of the quarter was $9.7 million, or approximately $1.74 per share".

On July 18, we announced a $0.10 per common share cash dividend. Based on the
closing price on July 15 2005 ($5.67 per share), the forthcoming dividend would
represent an annual yield of approximately 1.8 %. The Board of Directors feels
this is an appropriate reward to loyal shareholders. I am pleased with our cash
position and we believe our financial resources continue to permit the payment
of dividends while meeting our other financial requirements.

Mr. O'Leary further stated "As our first quarter results have demonstrated, we
are committed to keeping one eye on the future and one eye on the bottom line;
as we continue to pursue planned profitable growth".
