ADDvantage Technologies Reports Fiscal 2009 Third Quarter Earnings

Quarterly Revenue of $9.1 Million -- Net Income of $0.06 per Share

BROKEN ARROW, OK--(Marketwire - August 11, 2009) - ADDvantage Technologies Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: AEY) today announced its results for the three and nine month periods ended June 30, 2009.

Revenue for the three month period ended June 30, 2009 was $9.1 million compared to $13.2 million in the same period a year ago, a decrease of 31%. Revenue from new and refurbished equipment sales declined $4.1 million as a result of the downturn in the economy, which has caused customers to continue to conserve cash and limited customers' access to affordable financing. Service revenue remained steady at $1.4 million for the three month periods ending June 30, 2009 and 2008 due to increased marketing for these services and customers choosing to repair their equipment rather than replace it.

Net income attributable to common stockholders in the third quarter of 2009 was $655,000, or $0.06 per diluted share, as compared to $606,000, or $0.06 per diluted share, in the year-earlier period.

For the nine months ended June 30, 2009, revenue decreased 23% to $32.1 million, from $41.8 million in the same period a year ago.

Net income attributable to common stockholders for the nine month period was $2.3 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, as compared to $3.5 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, for the first nine months of fiscal 2008.

Ken Chymiak, ADDvantage Technologies Group President and CEO, commented, "Our results reported for the third quarter and nine months ended June 30, 2009 met our expectations considering the current economic environment. In addition to maintaining positive net income and positive cash flow, we also paid $3.7 million towards our debt during the nine months ended June 30, 2009. I believe this speaks well of the health of our company, our management's ability to keep costs in line with demand and the successful long-term strategy we have in place."

Mr. Chymiak continued, "Third quarter demand for our new and refurbished products among large and small multi-system operator (MSO) customers continues to be impacted by the weakened economy. However, we expect that as the credit market crisis eases, along with the anticipated funding opportunities that the U.S. Government's economic stimulus package will provide, our customers will begin to make their necessary bandwidth upgrades and plant expansions."

Mr. Chymiak concluded, "We appreciate the support we have received from our employees, customers, manufacturers and shareholders. This past nine months has been an excellent test for our company, and I am pleased with our overall performance."
