ADDvantage Technologies Announces Results
for the Fiscal Fourth Quarter of 2015
- - -

BROKEN ARROW, Oklahoma, December 15, 2015 – ADDvantage Technologies Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: AEY)
, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended September 30, 2015.

“We recorded positive results for fiscal year 2015, with revenue and EBITDA gains of 22% and 97%, respectively,” said David Humphrey, President and CEO of ADDvantage Technologies. “This success was driven primarily by our expansion into the telecommunications equipment sector as the Company benefited from a full fiscal year of Nave Communications sales.”

“We recently observed a general weakness in our industry, which negatively impacted our fourth quarter sales. Despite these lower sales in the fourth quarter, we remained profitable across both the Cable TV and Telco segments. The general industry weakness has carried over into our fiscal first quarter of 2016, and we will most likely experience a continuing decline in revenue for both the Cable TV and Telco segments,” continued Mr. Humphrey.

“As we have demonstrated previously, our lean business structure has the capacity to expand and contract quickly in line with future sales opportunities. This flexibility, combined with the Company’s successful transition into the telecommunications equipment distribution market, is expected to allow us to overcome these challenges in market demand and remain profitable in 2016.  We believe that both segments of our business provide a solid foundation to be profitable and generate positive cash flows as we continue to invest in our existing segments and to identify and execute strategic acquisitions in the broader telecommunication industry,” concluded Mr. Humphrey.

Results for the three months ended September 30, 2015

Consolidated sales decreased 21% to $9.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 compared with $12.1 million for the same period ended September 30, 2014. The decrease in sales resulted from a $1.3 million and $1.2 million decrease in sales in the Cable TV segment and Telco segment, respectively, compared to the same period last year.

Consolidated operating, selling, general and administrative expenses decreased $0.7 million, or 20%, to $2.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 from $3.3 million for the same period last year.  This decrease was due to $0.6 million in Telco segment expenses, and $0.1 million in Cable TV segment expenses.
 
Income from continuing operations for the three months ended September 30, 2015 was $0.2 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared with a gain from continuing operations of $0.6 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, for the same period of 2014.

Consolidated EBITDA for the three months ended September 30, 2015 was $0.8 million compared with $1.2 million for the same period ended September 30, 2014.

Results for the year ended September 30, 2015

Consolidated sales increased 22% to $43.7 million for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2015 compared with $35.9 million for the same period ended September 30, 2014. The increase in sales was due to an increase in the Telco segment of $9.6 million primarily resulting from the acquisition of Nave Communications in February 2014, and was partially offset by a $1.8 million decrease in sales in the Cable TV segment.

Consolidated operating, selling, general and administrative expenses increased $2.2 million, or 21%, to $12.7 million for the year ended September 30, 2015 from $10.5 million for the same period last year.  This increase was primarily due to $2.7 million in Telco segment expenses as a result of the Nave Communications acquisition, and offset by a $0.5 million decrease in expenses for the Cable TV segment.

Income from continuing operations for the year ended September 30, 2015 was $1.5 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, compared with $0.7 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, for the same period of 2014.

Consolidated EBITDA for the year ended September 30, 2015 was $3.8 million compared with $1.9 million for the same period ended September 30, 2014.

Cash and cash equivalents were $6.1 million as of September 30, 2015, compared with $5.3 million as of September 30, 2014.  As of September 30, 2015, the Company had inventory of $23.6 million compared with $22.8 million as of September 30, 2014.
