BROKEN ARROW, Okla., Dec. 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ADDvantage Technologies Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:AEY), today announced its results for the three month period and year ended September 30, 2013.
Total revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2013 decreased 1% to $8.4 million compared with $8.5 million for the same period last year. New equipment sales were $5.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013 as compared with $5.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012. Sales of new equipment for the quarter increased primarily as a result of our expanded product offerings. Net refurbished equipment sales were $1.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013 as compared with $2.2 million for the same period last year. Sales of refurbished equipment continued to be negatively impacted by several factors including the continued decrease in plant expansions and bandwidth upgrades in the cable television industry. Service revenue was relatively flat at $1.1 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 and the same period last year.
Net income for the three month period ended September 30, 2013 was $0.3 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, compared with $0.4 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, for the same period of 2012. Net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 slightly decreased primarily as a result of a decrease in gross profit due primarily to decreased revenue and an increase in the provision for excess and obsolete inventory, partially offset by a decline in operating expenses.
For the twelve months ended September 30, 2013, total revenues decreased 5% to $33.4 million compared with $35.2 million for 2012. The decrease in total revenues was primarily due to the continued decrease in plant expansions and bandwidth upgrades in the cable television industry, partially offset by increased equipment sales as a result of Hurricane Sandy.
Net income for the twelve month period ended September 30, 2013 was $1.7 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, as compared with $1.3 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, for the twelve months of fiscal 2012. Net income for fiscal 2013 was positively impacted by a decrease in interest expense of $1.1 million resulting from the early payoff of one of its term loans in March 2012 and the termination of the associated interest rate swap agreement.
David Humphrey, President and CEO, commented, "For the fiscal year ended 2013, we generated $1.7 million in net income and continue to maintain a strong balance sheet and positive cash flows even though our total revenue declined due to the ongoing challenges within the CATV equipment industry. We are still working on executing our growth strategy to further develop our existing business as we work on expanding our product offerings among existing and new vendors as well as increasing our sales force in order to help us better penetrate the CATV equipment market. This includes hiring three industry veterans from Motorola."
"In addition to implementing a plan to drive organic growth, we are evaluating acquisition opportunities that expand the scope of our business within the broader telecommunications industry. We believe our healthy cash position and credit line allows us a great amount of latitude in this effort," concluded Mr. Humphrey.
