ADDvantage Technologies Announces Financial Results for the Fiscal Fourth Quarter of 2012

Total Revenue of $35.2 Million and Net Income of $0.12 per Diluted Share for Fiscal Year 2012; Total Revenue of $8.5 Million and Net Income of $0.04 per Diluted Share for the Fourth Quarter of Fiscal Year 2012

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.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to evolve the way the world does business; however, understanding how to apply it to your company can be a mystery. Most people struggle with understanding the potential business uses or tend to get caught up in the technology, resulting in solutions that fail to meet even minimum business goals. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jesse Shiah, CEO / President / Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., showed what is needed to leverage the IoT to transform your business. He discussed opportunities and challenges ahead for the IoT from a market and technical point of vie...
IoT is still a vague buzzword for many people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Kavis, Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Partners, discussed the business value of IoT that goes far beyond the general public's perception that IoT is all about wearables and home consumer services. He also discussed how IoT is perceived by investors and how venture capitalist access this space. Other topics discussed were barriers to success, what is new, what is old, and what the future may hold. Mike Kavis is Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Pa...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness, and in-car entertainment and this excitement will bleed into other areas. On the commercial side, m...

"People are a lot more knowledgeable about APIs now. There are two types of people who work with APIs - IT people who want to use APIs for something internal and the product managers who want to do something outside APIs for people to connect to them," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Performance is the intersection of power, agility, control, and choice. If you value performance, and more specifically consistent performance, you need to look beyond simple virtualized compute. Many factors need to be considered to create a truly performant environment. In his General Session at 15th Cloud Expo, Harold Hannon, Sr. Software Architect at SoftLayer, discussed how to take advantage of a multitude of compute options and platform features to make cloud the cornerstone of your online presence.
An entirely new security model is needed for the Internet of Things, or is it? Can we save some old and tested controls for this new and different environment? In his session at @ThingsExpo, New York's at the Javits Center, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, reviewed hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal a new risk balance you might not expect.

DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

"There is a natural synchronization between the business models, the IoT is there to support ,” explained Brendan O'Brien, Co-founder and Chief Architect of Aria Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at the 15th International Cloud Expo®, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
