ADDvantage Technologies Announces Financial Results for the Fiscal Third Quarter of 2012

Total Revenue of $8.5 Million and Net Income of $0.05 per Diluted Share

BROKEN ARROW, OK--(Marketwire - Aug 7, 2012) - ADDvantage Technologies Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: AEY), today announced its results for the three and nine month periods ended June 30, 2012.

Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2012 slightly decreased to $8.5 million compared to $8.7 million for the same period last year. Sales of new equipment were $4.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 as compared to $5.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011. New equipment sales continued to be negatively impacted by several factors including the continued economic downturn in the cable television industry as multiple system operator ("MSO") customers continue to conserve cash and limit capital expenditures. Net refurbished equipment sales were $2.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 as compared to $1.9 million for the same period last year. This increase was driven primarily by our acquisition of Adams Global Communications in May 2011. Service revenue was unchanged at $1.2 million for the three month period ended June 30, 2012 compared to June 30, 2011.

Net income was $0.5 million, or $0.05 per diluted share for the three month periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011. Net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 benefited from a $0.2 million reduction in interest expense compared to the same period last year, which was a result of the Company paying off one of its term loans in March 2012 and the termination of the associated interest rate swap agreement.

For the nine months ended June 30, 2012, revenue was relatively unchanged at $26.7 million compared to $26.8 million for the same period last year. Net income for the nine month period was $0.8 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, as compared to $1.8 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, for the first nine months of fiscal 2011. Net income for the nine months ended June 30, 2012 included a charge to interest expense of $0.8 million for the termination of the interest rate swap agreement.

"Our results for the fiscal third quarter of 2012 continued to reflect a general weakness in equipment sales due to the economic downturn in the cable television industry. This was partially offset by revenues generated from our acquisition of Adams Global Communications in May 2011, which allowed us to report a 40% increase in our refurbished equipment sales and relatively flat total revenue for the quarter compared to the same period last year. Also, our payoff of one of our term loans and the associated interest rate swap agreement in March 2012 led to a significant reduction in interest expense for the fiscal third quarter of 2012. As a result, we reported net income of $0.5 million, which was flat compared to the same period of fiscal 2011," stated David Humphrey, President and CEO of ADDvantage Technologies.

"The company continues to evaluate growth opportunities, both organically and through acquisitions. We believe that our current business is well positioned financially to support these activities, which would help stimulate both short-term and long-term growth," concluded Mr. Humphrey.
