Electronic Tele-Communications, Inc. (ETC) today reported its second quarter 2012 results. Sales for the quarter were $322,928 compared to $304,281 for the 2011 second quarter. The net loss for the quarter was $27,822 or $0.01 per Class A common share, compared to a net loss of $12,132 or $0.00 per Class A common share for the second quarter of 2011.
Sales for the first six months of 2012 were $803,977 compared to sales of $684,930 in the first six months of 2011. Earnings for the first six months of 2012 were $18,823 or $0.01 per Class A common share, compared to a loss of $37,503 or $0.01 per Class A common share for the first six months of 2011.
Commenting on the results, ETC President Dean Danner said, “Although we experienced weak shipments of systems in the latter part of the quarter, we are able to report positive earnings for the first 6 months of 2012. Indications are that the weakness for the quarter was a result of timing differences, both in our sales and our overhead expenses. The additional overhead was mostly related to trademark renewals and third quarter sales are up, as are our customer’s requests for quotes. We remain cautiously encouraged by the market activity and anticipate positive earnings for the year. Our markets are still unpredictable but have shown some signs of more stability since the middle of 2011.”
