ADDvantage Technologies Reports Financial Results for Fourth Quarter and Year End Fiscal 2020
Carrollton, Texas, December 16, 2020 – ADDvantage Technologies Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: AEY) (“ADDvantage Technologies” or the “Company”) today reported its financial results for the three and twelve months ended September 30, 2020.

ADDvantage’s Chief Executive Officer, Joe Hart, commented “With 2020 being a challenging global business environment, ADDvantage Technologies group was identified as an “essential service” as we provide critical infrastructure in building and supporting communications services. We have been resilient in our cost and cash management as we had significant hurdles to overcome in both our Telco and Wireless business during fiscal year 2020. These hurdles were primarily driven by the shift to remote work as offices shut down impacting our Telco business and closure of special outdoor event or large gathering events impacting our Wireless business.

“During this business environment, we wanted to accomplish three strategic imperatives in strengthening our balance sheet for sustainable growth.

“First, we wanted to increase our overall cash position and did so by increasing our cash holdings to over $8 million while maintaining working capital[1] at over $11 million.

“Second, we wanted to use this environment to reshape our Telco and Wireless business for expanded growth plus drive a more nimble and leaner business model by reducing overhead and direct expenses. For Telco, we took major write-downs of Goodwill, Intangibles and Inventory at over $11 million. This action made our Telco business nimble and more competitive in both a COVID and post-COVID business environment. For growth, we invested in our Wireless business by increasing our revenue coverage model by adding resources in sales and back office in supporting the increase 5G build opportunities. For Telco growth, we completed our investment for a new facility for our Triton business in improving efficiencies and employee work environment while allowing for expansion.

“Third, continue to attract and retain great people to support growth. In fiscal year 2020, we rewarded key functional team members with restricted stock awards tied into the financial success of the company and shareholder returns. We added new talent within our Executive leadership team that, from experience, know how to scale through growth while working within a lean operation. Overall, our people drive our business and continue to excel during these challenging times.

“With these FY2020 strategic imperatives we continue to transform our business model by streamlining our expenses and improving our operational efficiency and positioning the Company for growth and profitability as the 5G transformation accelerates. Over the past year, we have improved gross margins by more than 1,500 basis points, and eliminated approximately $0.5 million in quarterly operating expenses, resulting in a significant narrowing of our loss from operations.

“We continue to improve our liquidity, with cash in excess of $8 million and working capital over $11 million in preparing for 5G growth. We are seeing clear signs that the 5G transformation will begin in earnest in 2021, and we are well-positioned to capture a meaningful share of the tower work related to this important project in the geographic areas we currently serve. Apple recently released the new 5G capable handset, providing the clearest indication yet of the impending 5G opportunity. With all of the Carriers advertising 5G services, the actual long-term upgrade of the networks is just about to begin in 2021. These 3G, 4G and now 5G cycles typically last 7-10 years and require major Capex spend by every Carrier principally in the first 5 years of each cycle.
