ADDvantage Technologies Revenue Increases 31% to $25.9 Million,
Record Net Income of $1.5 Million for the Third Quarter of Fiscal 2022

Record Quarterly EPS of $0.11 vs. $0.05, $5.2 Million in Cash Flow from Operations
and $4.9 Million in Cash at September 30

Carrollton, Texas, November 14, 2022 – ADDvantage Technologies Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: AEY) (“ADDvantage Technologies” or the “Company”) today reported record financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, the third quarter of 2022. The Company has changed its fiscal year end from September 30 to December 31, and this report reflects that adjustment with fiscal year-to-date periods of January 1 to September 30.

“Continued double-digit revenue growth, strong demand for our solutions on both sides of our business, and the benefit of cost reduction and margin enhancement initiatives drove record net income for ADDvantage Technologies,” commented Joe Hart, Chief Executive Officer. “Our overall growth continues to be led by our Telco segment, which increased more than $5.3 million in the quarter on strong demand for optical, wireless and enterprise products to offset supply chain challenges for new equipment and fuel the distributed workforce trends. This business generated nearly $2.0 million in contribution margin in the quarter.”

“Our Wireless segment continues to grow, and we are moving toward profitability for this segment as we drive operational efficiencies and reach an inflection point in terms of revenue,” continued Mr. Hart. “The fourth quarter is typically impacted by weather-related and holiday seasonality, but we are continuing to expand our presence with wireless carriers in key geographies, and we expect 2023 will reflect strong demand and strategic investments in our operations. As a result, we anticipate further wireless expansion and positive contribution margin, bolstering our profitable consolidated results.”

Financial Results for the Three Months ended September 30, 2022

Third quarter sales were $25.9 million, an increase of $6.2 million, or 31% compared to $19.7 million last year. The increase was primarily due to an increase of $0.9 million, or 13% in Wireless revenue related to 5G tower work, and an increase of $5.3 million, or 42% in Telco revenue due to increased demand for optical and wireless equipment sold by the Telco segment.

Gross profit was $8.5 million, or 33% gross margin, compared to gross profit of $5.0 million, or 25% gross margin, for the same period last year. Operating expenses decreased $0.3 million, or 12%, to $2.3 million 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 $0.1 million or 2%, to $4.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022 from $4.4 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 a record $1.5 million, or $0.11 per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $0.6 million (which includes a $3.0 million gain on extinguishment of debt related to the forgiveness of a PPP loan), or $0.05 per diluted share, for the third quarter last year.

Financial Results for the Nine Months ended September 30, 2022 (the period from January 1 to September 30)

For the period from January 1, 2022 to September 30, 2022, sales were $77.5 million, an increase of 57% compared to $49.4 million for the same period last year. Wireless segment revenue increased 48% to $22.9 million and Telco segment revenue increased 61% to $54.6 million.

Gross profit was $22.4 million, or 29% gross margin, compared to gross profit of $12.5 million, or 25% gross margin, for the same period last year. Operating expenses increased $0.3 million to $7.6 million from $7.3 million the same period last year. Year-to-date net income was $1.0 million, or $0.07 per basic and diluted share, compared to a net

loss of $4.5 million (which includes a $3.0 million gain on extinguishment of debt related to the forgiveness of a PPP loan), or $(0.36) per diluted share last year.

Balance sheet

Cash and cash equivalents were $4.9 million as of September 30, 2022, compared with $1.8 million at December 31, 2021. As of September 30, 2022, the Company had net inventories of $8.7 million.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2022, the Company paid off its line of credit. Outstanding debt as of September 30, 2022 was $1.7 million, consisting of vehicle financing leases.

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 September 30, 2022 and 2021, in thousands:
