BROKEN ARROW, Okla., May 10, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ADDvantage Technologies Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:AEY), today announced its financial results for the three and six month periods ended March 31, 2016.
“The sales activity in the second fiscal quarter of 2016 rebounded from the fiscal first quarter of 2016, as we reported $10.6 million in revenue for the second quarter, a 28% increase sequentially, though revenue was down 7% compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2015. The sequential improvement was largely driven by a positive change in market dynamics as we witnessed greater demand across both the Telco and Cable TV segments compared with the first fiscal quarter of 2016,” commented David Humphrey, President and CEO of ADDvantage Technologies. “The results for the quarter were in line with our expectations that market forces would begin to stabilize this quarter, enabling our customers to gain greater visibility into their budgetary constraints and thereby allowing them to make purchase decisions.”
“Our ability to rapidly regain customers as market conditions improved reflects the proactivity of our sales team and its strong industry relationships. This ability to withstand market fluctuations, combined with our recently announced strategic joint venture with YKTG, positions us to grow the business in the second half of the year. Furthermore, our balance sheet remains strong, and we continue to seek out acquisition opportunities in the broader telecommunications sector with a view to expanding market share over the long term,” concluded Mr. Humphrey.
Consolidated sales for the three months ended March 31, 2016 decreased $0.8 million, or 7%, to $10.6 million compared with $11.4 million for the same period ended March 31, 2015. The decrease in consolidated sales is attributable to a decrease in sales of $1.2 million from the Telco segment, and was partially offset by an increase in sales of $0.2 million for the Cable TV segment sales.
Consolidated operating, selling, general and administrative expenses decreased $0.5 million, or 14%, to $3.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 from $3.8 million for the same period last year. This decrease was primarily due to a $0.7 million decrease in Telco segment expenses, and was partially offset by an increase of $0.2 million in Cable TV segment expenses. The decrease in the Telco segment included a $0.4 million decrease in expenses for the annual earn-out payments related to the acquisition of Nave Communications.
Net income for the three months ended March 31, 2016, was $146 thousand, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared with $234 thousand, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the same period of 2015.
Consolidated EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2016 was $0.6 million compared with $0.7 million for the same period ended March 31, 2015.
Consolidated sales for the six months ended March 31, 2016 decreased $3.4 million, or 15%, to $18.8 million compared with $22.2 million for the same period ended March 31, 2015. Sales for the Cable TV segment decreased by $1.6 million to $11.0 million for the six months ended March 31, 2016 from $12.6 million for the same period last year, while sales for the Telco segment decreased $2.0 million to $7.9 million for the six months ended March 31, 2016 from $9.9 million for the same period last year.
Consolidated operating, selling, general and administrative expenses decreased $1.0 million to $5.9 million for the six months ended March 31, 2016 from $6.9 million for the same period last year. This decrease was primarily due to a $1.1 million decrease in Telco segment expenses and was partially offset by an increase of $0.1 million in expenses in the Cable TV segment. The decrease in the Telco segment included a $0.7 million decrease in expenses for the annual earn-out payments related to the acquisition of Nave Communications.
Net income for the six month period ended March 31, 2016 was $170 thousand, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared with $650 thousand, or $0.06 per diluted share, for the same period of 2015.
Consolidated EBITDA for the six months ended March 31, 2016 was $1.0 million compared with $1.8 million for the same period ended March 31, 2015.
Cash and cash equivalents were $5.0 million as of March 31, 2016, compared with $6.1 million as of September 30, 2015. As of March 31, 2016, the Company had inventory of $21.8 million compared with $23.6 million as of September 30, 2015.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
EBITDA is a supplemental, non-GAAP financial measure. EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. Management believes providing EBITDA in this release is useful to investors’ understanding and assessment of the Company’s ongoing continuing operations and prospects for the future and it is a used by the financial community to evaluate the market value of companies considered to be in similar businesses. Since 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. EBITDA, as calculated in the table below, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies. In additions, EBITDA is not necessarily a measure of our ability to fund our cash needs.
