ADDvantage Technologies Announces Results for Fiscal 2011 First Quarter

First Quarter 2011 Total Revenue of $9.2 Million and Net Income of $0.07 per Diluted Share

BROKEN ARROW, OK--(Marketwire - February 8, 2011) - ADDvantage Technologies Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: AEY), today announced its results for the three month period ended December 31, 2010.

Revenue for the three month period ended December 31, 2010 was $9.2 million compared to $10.2 million in the same period a year ago. Sales of new equipment were $6.5 million for the three months ended December 30, 2010 as compared to $6.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2009. Net refurbished equipment sales were $1.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2010 as compared to $2.3 million for the same period last year. The decrease in refurbished equipment sales was primarily due to a decrease in sales of digital converter boxes of $0.6 million. Service revenue was $1.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2010 as compared to $1.4 million for the same period last year. This decline was primarily attributable to the closure of the Tulsat-West facility in the fiscal first quarter of 2011.

Net income attributable to common shareholders in the first quarter of fiscal 2011 was $0.7 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, as compared to $0.9 million, or $0.8 per diluted share, in the same period last year.

Ken Chymiak, President and CEO, commented, "We continue to report strong gross margins and positive net income, and further strengthened our balance sheet with an increase in cash and cash equivalents. Our sales remained relatively the same compared to last year except for the sale of refurbished digital converter boxes. The decrease in sales for the digital converter boxes was due to lower demand for this product. The overall market demand for cable television equipment continues to be flat as a result of the difficult economic environment, traditional United States cable companies are still under budgetary pressures as new housing starts and consumer spending is still down."

"Also, as previously announced on December 27, 2010, our subsidiary, Tulsat, entered into a new system integrator/reseller agreement with Cisco, which will enable it to sell both IT and Service Provider Video Technology Group ("SPVTG") related products in the United States. This agreement replaces Tulsat's prior distributor agreement with Cisco, which expired December 20, 2010. Under the terms of the new agreement, Tulsat will purchase the majority of its new Cisco product inventory through a primary stocking distributor as opposed to purchasing directly from Cisco as it did under the prior agreement. This is expected to result in slightly higher product costs, but it will lower the Company's inventory, storage, shipping and handling costs," concluded Mr. Chymiak.
