ADDvantage Technologies Reports Fiscal 2007 Second Quarter Earnings

Quarterly Revenue of $16.0 Million -- Net Income of $0.15 per Share

BROKEN ARROW, OK -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 14, 2007 -- ADDvantage Technologies Group, Inc. (AMEX: AEY) today announced its results for fiscal second quarter 2007.

For the three month period ended March 31, 2007, revenue was $16.0 million compared to $12.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2006, an increase of 29%, and matches the Company's largest quarter of revenues.

Net income attributable to common stockholders in the second quarter of 2007 was $1.6 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, compared to $0.9 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, in the year-earlier period, an increase of 78%.

For the six months ended March 31, 2007, revenue totaled $30.8 million versus $27.2 million for the first six months of 2006, representing an increase of 13.2%. Net income attributable to common stockholders for the period was $3.0 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, an increase of 25% over net income of $2.4 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, for the first six months of fiscal 2006.

Ken Chymiak, ADDvantage Technologies Group President and CEO, commented, "We are extremely pleased with our performance in the second quarter. A significant portion of our revenue growth came from new product sales to several large MSOs in the Midwest that are making capital improvements to increase the bandwidth of their communication signals. These capital projects are also making available used products that we have been able to purchase, refurbish and resell to other customers, resulting in increased refurbished product sales for the quarter. We experienced further growth in sales of refurbished products as a result of sales of our legacy digital converter boxes. During the quarter we sold 9,000 converter boxes, bringing the total number of converter boxes sold year-to-date to approximately 16,000."

Mr. Chymiak added, "At the end of the quarter, we had approximately 80,000 digital converter boxes in our inventory. While we expect to see an increase in sales of these boxes to our U.S. customers as we approach the upcoming July 1, 2007 FCC ban on the sale of legacy boxes, our recent sales activity has shown us that there is a large international market for refurbished digital boxes where no ban exists. There is risk that after the July 1, 2007 FCC ban date, the normal attrition of legacy boxes in the U.S. market will produce a surplus that will drive down pricing in the international market. If this happens, our margins on digital converter box sales will be impacted. However, we expect the sales prices for the refurbished legacy digital converter boxes will remain above our investment costs."
