Wireless Telecom Group Announces First Quarter 2014 Financial Results Including an Increase in Net Sales of 35%

Wireless Telecom Group, Inc. (NYSE MKT:WTT) announced today results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2014, the Company reported net sales of $9,185,000, compared to $6,797,000 for the same period in 2013, an increase of 35%. Net sales in the Network Solutions segment were $6,390,000, compared to $3,794,000 for the same period in 2013, an increase of 68%. Net sales in the Test and Measurement segment were $2,795,000, compared to $3,003,000 for the same period in 2013, a decrease of 7%.

The Company also reported net income of $440,000 or $0.02 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2014, compared to net income of $346,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2013, an increase of 27%.

Non-GAAP normalized EBITDA for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 was $1,086,000 or 12% of net sales as compared to $720,000 or 11% of net sales for the first quarter of 2013. Our non-GAAP normalized EBITDA results do not include the Company’s tax provision (benefit), depreciation and amortization, interest expense, and certain other costs. A reconciliation of Net Income to non-GAAP normalized EBITDA results is included as an attachment to this press release.

Paul Genova, CEO of Wireless Telecom Group, Inc., commented, “We are excited by the continued growth in our Network Solutions business segment. Our ongoing investment in products for the DAS and LTE marketplace continue to benefit the Company through increased revenue, earnings and improved cash flow.”

“Our Test and Measurement segment showed a decrease in 2014 revenue due, in large part, to reduced military budgets which affected order flow during the first quarter. However, we are encouraged by recent order activity and customer interest in our new Boonton USB Peak Power Meter which was released during the second quarter of 2014.”

Genova continued, “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 2014. 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.
