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

* Reuters is not responsible for the content in this press release.

ADDvantage Technologies Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: AEY), today announced its
results for the three month period ended December 31, 2011.

    Revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2011 was $9.0 million
compared to $9.2 million for the same period last year. Sales of new
equipment were $5.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2011
as compared to $6.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2010.
New equipment sales were negatively impacted by several factors including
the continued economic downturn in the cable television industry as
multiple system operator ("MSO") customers continue to conserve cash and
limit capital expenditures and the negative impact of the Cisco reseller
agreement entered in December 2010. Net refurbished equipment sales were
$2.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2011 as compared to
$1.4 million for the same period last year. The increase in net
refurbished equipment sales was primarily driven by our acquisition of
the net operating assets of Adams Global Communications in May 2011,
which increased our first quarter revenue by $1.1 million. Service
revenue was $1.2 million for the three month period ended December 31,
2011 as compared to $1.3 million for the same period last year. 

    Net income attributable to common shareholders for the three months ended
December 31, 2011 was $0.4 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, as
compared to $0.7 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, for the same period
last year. 

    Ken Chymiak, President and CEO, commented, "Revenue for the three months
ended December 31, 2011 was relatively flat year-over-year, as we
continue to face a weak cable equipment market and an uncertain economy.
However, we maintained our gross margins at approximately 30%, generated
positive cash flow from operations of $1.8 million in the fiscal first
quarter of 2012, and continued to pay down our long-term debt. As a
result, we increased our cash and cash equivalents to $12.3 million as of
December 31, 2011 compared to $10.9 million as of September 30, 2011. We
believe that our relatively strong financial position gives us major
competitive advantages in the current market and allows us to continue to
seek strategic growth opportunities and other ways that we could bring
value to our shareholders. 

    "The core message for our customers, employees and investors as we enter
2012 is that ADDvantage Technologies is making every effort to confront
its current challenges with a focus on strategic adaptation and a
common-sense vision. We continue to consider changes to our business in
order to return to a position of long-term growth," concluded Mr. Chymiak.

After wave of QE, onus shifts to leaders to boost economy

DAVOS, Switzerland - Central banks have done their best to rescue the world economy by printing money and politicians must now act fast to enact structural reforms and pro-investment policies to boost growth, central bankers said on Saturday.
