ADDvantage Technologies Revenue Full-Year Increases 56% to $97.0 million
Improves Bottom Line by $7.0 million

Telco Sales Increase 59%, Wireless Revenues Up 49%, for Year-Ended December 31, 2022

Carrollton, Texas, March 21, 2023 – ADDvantage Technologies Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: AEY) (“ADDvantage Technologies” or the “Company”) today reported financial results for the three and 12 months ended December 31, 2022, the fourth quarter of 2022. The Company has changed its fiscal year end from September 30 to December 31 and the current fiscal year runs from January 1, 2022 through December 31, 2022 (fiscal 2022).

“This was a milestone year for ADDvantage Technologies, as we grew both our segments and delivered full-year positive net income, even with a challenging fourth quarter impacted by weather and economic headwinds,” commented Joe Hart, Chief Executive Officer. “Our Telco segment drove the majority of our growth, and this business benefits from customers seeking lower-cost technology such as our high-quality optical transport and refurbished end-user solutions. Our Wireless segment grew steadily throughout the year, delivering 49% year-over-year growth. We continue to gain market share in our target regions.”

“Recent upheaval in the wireless industry, and struggles of longstanding players, is creating new and exciting opportunities for us,” continued Mr. Hart. “Leading carriers are seeking new partners, partly due to the volume of work and partly due to issues involving legacy providers. We are well-positioned to secure new, long-term contracts due to our strong relationships with carriers and our capabilities.”

Financial Results for the Three Months ended December 31, 2022

Fourth quarter sales were $19.6 million, an increase of $0.9 million, or 5% compared to $18.7 million last year. The increase was primarily due to an increase of $0.8 million, or 11% in Wireless revenue due to 5G tower work, and an increase of $0.1 million, or 1%, in Telco revenue.

Gross profit was $5.3 million, or 27% gross margin, compared to gross profit of $4.6 million, or 25% gross margin, for the same period last year. Operating expenses decreased $0.3 million, or 10%, to $2.2 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, decreased $0.6 million or 16%, to $3.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2022 from $3.7 million for the same period last year.

Net loss for the quarter was $0.5 million, or $(0.04) per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $2.0 million, or $(0.16)per basic and diluted share, for the fourth quarter last year. The December quarter is typically slow due to weather which impacts Wireless work, and holidays which impact Telco sales.

Financial Results for the 12 Months ended December 31, 2022 (the period from January 1 to December 31)

For fiscal 2022, sales were $97.0 million, an increase of 56% compared to $62.2 million for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2021. Wireless segment revenue increased 49% to $30.8 million and Telco segment revenue increased 59% to $66.2 million.

Gross profit was $27.8 million, or 29% gross margin, compared to gross profit of $16.1 million, or 26% gross margin, for the prior year. Operating expenses increased $0.5 million to $9.8 million. Full-year net income was $0.5

million, or $0.03 per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $6.5 million, or $(0.52) per basic and 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 stock compensation expense, gain on extinguishment of debt, impairment of intangibles and right of use assets, 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 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.
