  BROKEN ARROW, OK, Feb 12 (Marketwire) -- 
ADDvantage Technologies Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: AEY) today announced its
results for the three month period ended December 31, 2012.

    Revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2012 increased 7% to $9.6
million compared to $9.0 million for the same period last year. New
equipment sales were $5.6 million for the three months ended December 31,
2012 as compared to $5.3 million for the three months ended December 31,
2011. Net refurbished equipment sales were $3.0 million for the three
months ended December 31, 2012 as compared to $2.6 million for the same
period last year. Service revenue decreased to $1.0 million for the three
month period ended December 31, 2012 compared to $1.1 million for the
same period last year. 

    Net income increased 100% to $0.8 million, or $0.08 per diluted share,
for the three month period ended December 31, 2012, compared to $0.4
million, or $0.04 per diluted share, for the same period last year. 

    Cash and cash equivalents were $7.3 million as of December 31, 2012
compared to $5.2 million as of September 30, 2012.

    David Humphrey, President and CEO, commented, "We achieved revenue growth
of 7% in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 primarily as a result of the
recent extreme weather conditions in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern
regions of the U.S. We were able to satisfy the customers' urgent
equipment needs with our inventory on hand for which the original
equipment manufacturer was unable to deliver in a timely manner. Although
we do not anticipate this particular situation to provide much additional
revenue, these types of situations will continue to provide us with
opportunities to take advantage of our inventory position. Gross margins
for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 increased to 33% from 30% from the
prior year period, which is primarily attributable to higher margin sales
of certain equipment purchased at significant discounts. As a result, we
increased our profitability for the quarter and strengthened our cash
position to $7.3 million as of December 31, 2012. This bottom line
performance also reflects a $0.2 million decrease in interest expense
compared to the same period last year, following the payoff of a term
loan and the termination of the associated interest rate swap agreement
last year."

    "Our Company is purchasing small volumes of our common stock in the open
market, over 170,000 shares since December 2012, as we believe our stock
is a good value. The stock purchases notwithstanding, we remain focused
on our previously announced growth strategy, which is to expand upon
existing agreements with our suppliers, entering into new agreements with
new suppliers, expanding our geographical footprint and identifying
accretive acquisitions within our industry," concluded Mr. Humphrey.
