Electronic Tele-Communications, Inc. (ETC) (Pink Sheets: ETCIA) today reported its fourth quarter 2013 results. Sales for the quarter were $431,846 compared to $615,667 for the 2012 fourth quarter. The net earnings for the quarter were $35,696 or $0.01 per Class A common share, compared to net earnings of $85,481 or $0.04 per Class A common share for the fourth quarter of 2012.

Commenting on the results, ETC President Dean Danner said, “2013 sales were adversely impacted by the government sequester resulting the delay of some customer projects. In spite of this impact we generated positive earnings for both the quarter and the year.

We are cautiously encouraged by the market activity and anticipate our market remaining positive in 2014.”
