ADDvantage Technologies Announces Fiscal 2011 Fourth Quarter
and Year End Financial Results
- - -
Total revenue of $38.1 million and net income of $0.25 per diluted share for fiscal year 2011
- - -
Total revenue of $11.3 million and net income of $0.07 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2011

BROKEN ARROW, Oklahoma, December 15, 2011 – ADDvantage Technologies Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: AEY)
, today announced its results for the three and twelve month periods ended September 30, 2011.

Revenue for the three month period ended September 30, 2011 was $11.3 million compared to $11.7 million in the same period a year ago. Sales of new equipment were $7.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011 as compared to $8.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2010.  New equipment sales were negatively impacted by several factors including the continued economic downturn in the cable television industry as MSO customers continue to conserve cash and limit capital expenditures and the negative impact of the Cisco reseller agreement entered in December 2010.  Net refurbished equipment sales were $2.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011 as compared to $1.8 million for the same period last year. The increase in net refurbished equipment sales was primarily driven by our acquisition of the net operating assets of Adams Global Communications, which increased our fourth quarter revenue by $1.2 million. Service revenue was $1.5 million for both the three month periods ended September 30, 2011 and September 30, 2010.

Net income attributable to common shareholders in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011 was $0.7 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, as compared to $0.8 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, in the same period last year.

For the twelve months ended September 30, 2011, revenue decreased to $38.1 million from $47.3 million, for the same period last year.

Net income attributable to common stockholders for the twelve month period was $2.5 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, as compared to $4.2 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, for the twelve months of fiscal 2010.

Ken Chymiak, President and CEO, commented, “Like many other companies, ADDvantage Technologies continues to face an uncertain economy.  For fiscal year 2011, we maintained gross margins of approximately 30% as well as positive net income. These results were achieved despite a decline in total revenue year-over-year as our MSO customers continue to tightly control their spending due to the uncertain economic environment.  In addition, in the first quarter of fiscal year 2011 our subsidiary, Tulsat, entered into a new reseller agreement with Cisco that continues to impact our business by limiting our ability to sell to certain customers. We have responded to these two factors by making appropriate adjustments to our operations and overall market strategy, which have positioned us for both near-term and long-term success.  This included the Adams Global Communications acquisition, which provided strategic benefits such as client relationships and a reseller agreement with Arris Solutions.

“Although we are being impacted by the economic downturn and technology changes within the cable television industry, ADDvantage Technologies Group is meeting every challenge with strategic adaptation and a common-sense vision.  We are well positioned to meet our customers’ current and future needs, and have the necessary resources in place to respond quickly and nimbly as economic conditions improve and MSOs return to pre-recession upgrades and expansions,” continued Mr. Chymiak. “Our cash position remains strong, at $10.9 million as of September 30, 2011, compared to $8.7 million as of the beginning of our fiscal year 2011. We believe this will be sufficient for our working capital needs and is a reflection of the positive cash flow we have been generating due to our profitable operations and from the continued reduction in the level of our inventory,” concluded Mr. Chymiak.
