BROKEN ARROW, OK -- (Marketwire) -- 12/11/12 -- ADDvantage Technologies Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: AEY) today announced its results for the three month period and year ended September 30, 2012.
Revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2012 decreased 25% to $8.5 million compared to $11.3 million for the same period last year. New equipment sales were $5.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012 as compared to $7.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011. Net refurbished equipment sales were $2.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012 as compared to $2.8 million for the same period last year. Sales of new and 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 decreased to $1.2 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2012 compared to $1.5 million for the same period last year.
Net income was $0.4 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, for the three month period ended September 30, 2012, compared to $0.7 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, for the same period of 2011. Net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 benefited from a $0.2 million reduction in interest expense compared to the same period last year, which was a result of the Company paying off one of its term loans in March 2012 and the termination of the associated interest rate swap agreement.
For the twelve months ended September 30, 2012, revenue decreased to $35.2 million from $38.1 million for the same period last year. The decrease in equipment sales was primarily due to the continued decrease in plant expansions and bandwidth upgrades in the cable television industry, partially offset by revenue from Adams Global Communications, which was acquired in May 2011.
Net income attributable to common stockholders for the twelve month period was $1.3 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, as compared to $2.5 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, for the twelve months of fiscal 2011. Net income for fiscal 2012 included a charge to interest expense of $0.8 million for the termination of the interest rate swap agreement, partially offset by reduced interest expense of $0.4 million subsequent to paying off one of its term loans and terminating the associated interest rate swap agreement.
David Humphrey, President and CEO, commented, "Our results continue to reflect a general weakness in equipment sales in the cable television industry. However, we still maintained our gross margins at approximately 30% and generated $1.3 million of net income in fiscal year 2012. We also improved our overall balance sheet position in fiscal year 2012 by paying off one of our term loans and terminating the associated interest rate swap agreement.
"This year, the Company began to make changes to the management team and our business to better position our Company for growth both organically and through acquisitions. There are more management changes that will be made in the coming months in order to properly align our corporate structure with our growth strategy.
"We continue to generate positive cash flow from our existing business and have a strong balance sheet in order to implement this growth strategy. This has been partially supported by acquisitions that have added sales through new suppliers to our core resale business or expanded our existing customer base within our current business, such as Adams Global Communications in May 2011. Looking ahead, we are currently seeking new acquisition opportunities that will enable us to expand the scope of our business within the cable industry," concluded Mr. Humphrey.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
