ETC Announces Second Quarter 2014 Results

Electronic Tele-Communications, Inc. (ETC)(Pink Sheets: ETCIA) today reported its second quarter 2014 results. Sales for the quarter were $451,262 compared to $489,259 for the 2013 second quarter. The net earnings for the quarter were $6,163 or $0.00 per Class A common share, compared to earnings of $108,054 or $0.04 per Class A common share for the second quarter of 2013.

Sales for the first six months of 2014 were $943,997 compared to sales of $925,123 in the first six months of 2013. Earnings for the first six months of 2014 were $22,247 or $0.01 per Class A common share, compared to earnings of $108,187 or $0.04 per Class A common share for the first six months of 2013.

Results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 included a $90,075 gain on the sale of an investment, which is contained in the other income line for both periods. The one-time investment gain is related to the sale of securities the company was holding from a previously terminated pension plan. Without the investment gain, the net income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 would have been $17,979 and $18,112 respectively, or $.01 per Class A share.

Commenting on the results, ETC President Dean Danner said, “Sales slowed slightly in the second quarter but were still ahead of 2013 for the first six months of 2014. Earnings were impacted by lower margins on system sales partially offset by lower operating expenses. ETC anticipates that the second half of 2014 will continue to generate positive earnings in spite of product certification expenses expected in the second half of the year.”
