The increase in second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2013 operating expenses was primarily due to increases in professional and consulting fees, non-employee sales commissions and stock compensation expense.

Additionally, on August 1, 2013, the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Boonton Electronics, was awarded a contract with the Federal Aviation Administration (“FAA”) to supply Boonton 4500B RF Peak Power Meters in support of the Common Air Route Surveillance Radar (“CARSR”) installations. The total order value of the product to be sold under the contract is approximately $1.1M and a considerable portion of the order is expected to be realized over fiscal years 2013 and 2014.

Paul Genova, CEO of Wireless Telecom Group, Inc. stated “We are excited by the continued growth in our Network Solutions business segment, resulting in improvements to both revenue and segment income. Revenue in our Network Solutions segment for the first half of 2013 increased 49% to $9,748,000 compared to the prior year period, while segment income for the first half of 2013 increased 48% to $2,312,000 compared to the prior year period. Although our Test and Measurement segment experienced soft order flow during the first half of 2013, recent order activity has been very encouraging, including a $1.1M contract award received in early August from the FAA.”

Continued Genova, “We value our relationship with those government agencies critical to our success, including the FAA, and continue to be a proud supplier of test instruments in support of ongoing maintenance and development of state of the art communication systems.”

Genova continued, “We will continue to execute our strategic plan and build upon current order momentum as we head into the second half of 2013.”
