Wireless Telecom Group, Inc. (NYSE MKT:WTT) announced today results for the fourth quarter and twelve months ended December 31, 2013.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2013, the Company reported net sales of $9,532,000, compared to $8,216,000 for the same period in 2012, an increase of 16.0%. Net sales in the Network Solutions segment were $6,012,000, compared to $4,700,000 for the same period in 2012, an increase of 28%. Net sales in the Test and Measurement segment were $3,520,000, compared to $3,516,000 for the same period in 2012.

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2013, the Company reported net sales of $33,825,000, compared to $29,595,000 for the same period in 2012, an increase of 14.3%. Net sales in the Network Solutions segment were $22,032,000, compared to $14,334,000 for the same period in 2012, an increase of 54%. Net sales in the Test and Measurement segment were $11,794,000, compared to $15,260,000 for the same period in 2012, a decrease of 23%.

Net Income for the three and twelve month periods ended December 31 was $1,348,000 and $3,842,000 or $.05 and $.16 per diluted share for 2013 and $1,005,000 and $3,171,000 or $.04 and $.13 per diluted share for 2012, respectively.

Non-GAAP normalized EBITDA for the three and twelve month periods ended December 31 was $1,280,000 and $4,564,000 for 2013 and $1,157,000 and $3,707,000 for 2012, respectively. Our non-GAAP normalized EBITDA results do not include the Company’s tax benefit, depreciation and amortization, interest expense, and certain other costs. A reconciliation of Net Income to non-GAAP normalized EBITDA results is included in an attachment to this press release.

Paul Genova, CEO of Wireless Telecom Group, Inc., commented, “We continue to achieve strong revenue and income growth in the Network Solutions segment. Revenues increased by 54%, driven by our strong position in the North American DAS market and we continued to gain traction globally. Segment income increased by 59% to $5.6M. The primary driver of our growth is the implementation of LTE and DAS to satisfy increasing users’ demand for bandwidth that outpaces existing supply. We believe our Network Solutions segment is well-positioned to continue to take advantage of this market growth.”

“Our Test and Measurement segment showed softness in 2013 in large part due to the US Government sequester, which had a negative effect on order flow during the year. However, we are encouraged by the recent large order of $1.1M received from the FAA, which will be fulfilled in 2014, coupled with the release of our new Boonton USB Peak Power Meter product in the first quarter of 2014.”

Genova continued, “In 2013, we increased our cash position to $16.6M driven by strong operating performance and the sale of a long-term real estate holding. Operations for the year ended December 2013 were impacted slightly by reduced gross margins primarily due to revenue softness in our Test and Measurement segment, non-cash charges related to our stock compensation plans and professional fees related to our strategic business review. In order to supplement the GAAP operating results, we have included within this release certain non-GAAP financial measures to enhance the evaluation of our operating results in 2013. We look forward to ongoing improvements in our operations and cash flows as we continue to execute our strategic plan and pursue opportunities that will increase shareholder value.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

The non-GAAP financial measures are meant to supplement, and to be viewed in conjunction with, GAAP financial results. A reconciliation of our non-GAAP measures is included in an attachment to this press release.
