ADDvantage Technologies Announces Results for Fiscal 2011 Second Quarter

Second Quarter 2011 Total Revenue of $8.9 Million and Net Income of $0.06 per Diluted Share

BROKEN ARROW, OK--(Marketwire - May 10, 2011) - ADDvantage Technologies Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: AEY) today announced its results for the three and six month periods ended March 31, 2011.

Revenue for the three month period ended March 31, 2011 was $8.9 million compared to $12.1 million in the same period a year ago. Sales of new equipment were $6.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011 as compared to $7.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2010. Net refurbished equipment sales were $1.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011 as compared to $2.9 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 $1.0 million. Service revenue was $1.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011 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 second quarter of fiscal 2011 was $0.6 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, as compared to $1.1 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in the same period last year.

For the six months ended March 31, 2011, revenue decreased to $18.1 million from $22.3 million, for the same period last year.

Net income attributable to common stockholders for the six month period was $1.3 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, as compared to $1.9 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, for the first six months of fiscal 2010.

Ken Chymiak, President and CEO, commented, "During the second quarter of fiscal 2011, we maintained gross margins of approximately 30% and positive net income of approximately $0.6 million, while total revenue declined due to a number of external market factors continuing to affect the cable industry. Specifically, the cable television industry is experiencing a prolonged period of limited capital expenditures by MSOs on plant expansion projects and bandwidth upgrades in order to further conserve cash. We believe that returning equipment sales to pre-recession levels will be difficult to achieve until these plant expansions and bandwidth upgrades occur at the larger MSOs. Also, over the next several quarters we will continue to assess the full impact that Tulsat's new reseller contract with Cisco will have on our business.

"The positive cash flow we are generating in our business has allowed us to build our cash position to $10.2 million at March 31, 2011, up from $3.5 million at March 31, 2010. We anticipate our cash position to continue to increase as a result of our profitable operations and from our continued reduction in the level of inventory. While our inventory will be reduced, we plan on maintaining the inventory on-hand, or available to us via our supply channels, to meet our customers' demands once they increase their capital expenditures. As a result of the strong cash position we have established, we are regularly evaluating strategic ways to leverage our cash reserves in order to support the growth of our business and increase shareholder value," concluded Mr. Chymiak.
