ADDvantage Technologies Reports 63% Revenue Increase to a Record of $27.8 million, Net Income of $875,000 for the Third Quarter of Fiscal 2022

Company Reaches GAAP Profitability, Generates $5.0 Million in Cash from Operations,
as Both Wireless and Telco Segments Generate Profitable Growth

Carrollton, Texas, August 11, 2022 – ADDvantage Technologies Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: AEY) (“ADDvantage Technologies” or the “Company”) today reported record financial results for the three and nine months ended June 30, 2022, the third fiscal quarter of 2022.

“Both our Wireless and Telco Segments delivered double-digit growth driving record revenues of $27.8 million and overall profitability for the Company of $875,000 of net income,” commented Joe Hart, Chief Executive Officer. “The recent progress in both segments is encouraging, and we see continued cost optimization opportunities, particularly in our Wireless segment, driving further margin expansion as 5G demand continues to accelerate. ”

“The multi-year 5G build-out opportunity, combined with being strategically positioned as a trusted partner for our carrier customers, is leading to demand for both sides of our business,” continued Joe Hart. “For Wireless, as we grow to meet this demand, we will stay focused in our execution and bidding. By increasing our scale and maintaining our cost optimization initiative we expect to improve our wireless margins. Simultaneously, our Telco segment continues to expand our offerings to both wireless and optical network carriers to support both wireless and broadband connectivity for optical and IP transport.”

Financial Results for the Three Months ended June 30, 2022

Fiscal third quarter sales were a record $27.8 million, an increase of $10.8 million, or 63% compared to $17.0 million last year. The increase was primarily due to an increase of $3.1 million, or 75% in Wireless revenue related to 5G tower work, and an increase of $7.7 million, or 60% in Telco revenue due to increased demand for refurbished telecommunications equipment sold by the Telco segment.

Gross profit was $8.1 million, or 29% gross margin, compared to gross profit of $4.3 million, or 25% gross margin, for the same period last year. Operating expenses increased $36,000, or 1%, to $2.5 million, with the small operating expense increase against a 63% revenue increase reflecting the previously announced cost-reduction initiatives. Consolidated selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses include overhead, which consist of personnel, insurance, professional services, communication, and other cost categories, increased $0.5 million, or 16%, to $4.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022 from $3.6 million for the same period last year. The increase in SG&A relates primarily to increased selling and commissions expenses to support higher revenues.

Net income for the quarter was $875,000, or $0.07 per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $2.1 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, for the third fiscal quarter last year.

Financial Results for the Nine Months ended June 30, 2022

Year-to-date sales were a record $70.2 million, an increase of 66% compared to $42.4 million last year. Wireless segment revenue increased 61% to $22.1 million and Telco segment revenue increased 68% to $48.1 million.

Gross profit was $18.5 million, or 26% gross margin, compared to gross profit of $11.1 million, or 26% gross margin, for the same period last year. Operating expenses increased $1.1 million to $7.8 million from $6.7 million the same period last year. Year-to-date net loss narrowed by $4.6 million to $2.5 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $7.1 million, or $0.58 per diluted share last year.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure
Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental, non-GAAP financial measure.  EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA as presented also excludes impairment charges for operating lease right-of-use assets and intangible assets including goodwill, stock compensation expense, other income, other expense, interest income and income from equity method investment. Adjusted EBITDA is presented below because this metric is used by the financial community as a method of measuring our financial performance and of evaluating the market value of companies considered to be in similar businesses.  Since Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of performance calculated in accordance with GAAP, it should not be considered in isolation of, or as a substitute for, net earnings as an indicator of operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA, as calculated below, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies.  In addition, Adjusted EBITDA is not necessarily a measure of our ability to fund our cash needs.
The following table provides a reconciliation by segment of loss from operations to Adjusted EBITDA for the three and nine month periods ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, in thousands:
