Electronic Tele-Communications, Inc. (ETC) today reported its second quarter 2009 results. Sales for the quarter were $462,963 compared to $550,507 for the 2008 second quarter. The net loss for the quarter was $59,430 or $0.02 per Class A common share, compared to net earnings of $24,932 or $0.01 per Class A common share for the second quarter of 2008.
Sales for the first six months of 2009 were $846,436 compared to sales of $975,071 in the first six months of 2008. The loss for the first six months of 2009 was $185,475 or $.07 per Class A common share, compared to a loss of $41,583 or $.02 per Class A common share for the first six months of 2008.
Commenting on the results, ETC President Dean Danner said, “Sales improved from the first quarter of 2009 but still lag 2008 sales for the quarter and six months. The national economic problems continue to have an effect on ETC’s market segment. Our customers have had to cope with revenue and budget issues, partially the result of changes in the mix between wireline and wireless telephone usage. Many customers have reduced services, implemented temporary repairs, or delayed infrastructure projects to defer capital expenses into future fiscal periods. We continue to work with our customers to identify economic solutions to our mutual benefit and hope to see improvement in sales and earnings as the year progresses.”
