    ADDvantage Technologies Reports Financial Results for Fourth Quarter and Year End Fiscal 2020

    CARROLLTON, Texas, Dec. 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ADDvantage Technologies Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: AEY) (“ADDvantage Technologies” or the “Company”) today reported its financial results for the three and twelve months ended September 30, 2020. ADDvantage’s Chief Executive Officer, Joe Hart, commented, “With 2020 being a challenging global business environment, ADDvantage Technologies group was identified as an ‘essential service’ as we provide critical infrastructure in building and supporting communications services. We have been resilient in our cost and cash management as we had significant hurdles to overcome in both our Telco and Wireless business during fiscal year 2020. These hurdles were primarily driven by the shift to remote work as offices shut down impacting our Telco business and closure of special outdoor event or large gathering events impacting our Wireless business.”“During this business environment, we wanted to accomplish three strategic imperatives in strengthening our balance sheet for sustainable growth.”  “First, we wanted to increase our overall cash position and did so by increasing our cash holdings to over $8 million while maintaining working capital1 at over $11 million.”“Second, we wanted to use this environment to reshape our Telco and Wireless business for expanded growth plus drive a more nimble and leaner business model by reducing overhead and direct expenses. For Telco, we took major write-downs of Goodwill, Intangibles and Inventory at over $11 million. This action made our Telco business nimble and more competitive in both a COVID and post-COVID business environment. For growth, we invested in our Wireless business by increasing our revenue coverage model by adding resources in sales and back office in supporting the increase 5G build opportunities. For Telco growth, we completed our investment for a new facility for our Triton business in improving efficiencies and employee work environment while allowing for expansion.”“Third, continue to attract and retain great people to support growth. In fiscal year 2020, we rewarded key functional team members with restricted stock awards tied into the financial success of the company and shareholder returns. We added new talent within our Executive leadership team that, from experience, know how to scale through growth while working within a lean operation. Overall, our people drive our business and continue to excel during these challenging times.”“With these FY2020 strategic imperatives we continue to transform our business model by streamlining our expenses and improving our operational efficiency and positioning the Company for growth and profitability as the 5G transformation accelerates. Over the past year, we have improved gross margins by more than 1,500 basis points, and eliminated approximately $0.5 million in quarterly operating expenses, resulting in a significant narrowing of our loss from operations.”“We continue to improve our liquidity, with cash in excess of $8 million and working capital over $11 million in preparing for 5G growth. We are seeing clear signs that the 5G transformation will begin in earnest in 2021, and we are well-positioned to capture a meaningful share of the tower work related to this important project in the geographic areas we currently serve. Apple recently released the new 5G capable handset, providing the clearest indication yet of the impending 5G opportunity. With all of the Carriers advertising 5G services, the actual long-term upgrade of the networks is just about to begin in 2021. These 3G, 4G and now 5G cycles typically last 7-10 years and require major Capex spend by every Carrier principally in the first 5 years of each cycle.” “Our Telco business delivered the strongest quarter of the fiscal year in Q4 as spending started to return to normal after pandemic cutbacks, giving us optimism as we head into our new fiscal year. We anticipate double-digit revenue growth for our business in fiscal 2021 and anticipate reaching positive net income on a quarterly basis by the end of the year. We enter 2021 with a lean and efficient organization, strategically positioned throughout the middle of the country, with strong relationships with the leading Wireless Carriers and Telco clients and we have significantly improved our liquidity to execute our growth strategy. We are already starting to see wireless activity picking up in our southwest region, another positive indicator. All indications from trade news and industry press releases are that 5G network construction will be in full swing by midyear 2021.”Financial Results for the Three Months ended September 30, 2020Fourth quarter sales decreased to $12.2 million compared with $17.9 million for the three months last year a decrease of 31%. The decrease of $5.3 million in the Wireless segment compared to the prior year quarter was the result of the impact of COVID business environment and 5G delays in infrastructure spending from the major U.S. carriers. Traditionally Wireless has earned $4 to 5 million in revenue for the construction and deployment of large complex temporary cell sites during the summer months for county fairs, air shows, and large events such as the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee, Indy 500, World Series, etc. which were either rescheduled or cancelled in 2020.We also experienced a decline in sales in the Telco segment of $0.4 million resulting from a decrease in equipment sales at Triton, which sells office telephone and IP products for enterprise networks, as most large offices were closed during the quarter also as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.Even with a $5.6 million sales decrease, gross profit increased $0.7 million to $4.4 million compared with a gross profit of $3.7 million for the same quarter last year. The increase was primarily due to Telco segment profit improving by $1.2 million, partially offset by the Wireless segment margin decrease of $0.5 million. Gross profit margin improved to 36% from 21% from the prior year fourth quarter due to 2,000 basis point improvement in the Wireless services group and a 1,700 basis point improvement in the Telco business.Operating expenses decreased $0.5 million to $1.9 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 compared with $2.4 million the same period last year, as a result of cost reduction efforts in our Wireless segment.Selling, general and administrative expenses for the quarter increased $0.6 million to $3.2 million compared with $2.6 million for the same quarter last year. This increase was due to an investment in building out the sales team for the Wireless segment.Net loss for the quarter was $1.0 million, or a loss of $0.09 per diluted share, an improvement of $0.6 million, compared with a net loss of $1.6 million, or a loss of $0.15 per diluted share for the same quarter last year.Adjusted EBITDA loss for the quarter was $0.1 million compared with an Adjusted EBITDA loss of $0.9 million for the same quarter last year.Financial Results for the Fiscal Year Ended September 30, 2020Overall sales decreased 9% to $50.2 million compared with $55.1 million last year. The decrease in sales was driven principally by the global COVID-19 pandemic and investment delays in 5G network build-outs. Sales for the Wireless segment decreased $1.6 million to $21.4 million for the year compared with $23.0 million in the prior year. Wireless was significantly impacted during the summer months by crowd safety restrictions due to COVID-19. Traditionally Fulton has earned significant revenues for the construction and deployment of large complex temporary cell sites for summer and fall festivals, county fairs, air shows, and large events like the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee, Indy 500, World Series, etc. which were cancelled or rescheduled this year.Sales for the Telco segment decreased 10% or $3.4 million to $28.8 million for the year compared with $32.2 million last year. The decrease in sales resulted primarily from Telcom and IP office equipment as customers delayed build-out of new office space and upgrades of office space communications equipment as employees were sent home to work during 2020.Annual gross profit decreased 13% or $1.8 million to $11.7 million compared with $13.5 million for the prior year, primarily related to the Telco segment, for which gross profit decreased $2.0 million as a result of an increase in our reserve for inventory obsolescence in Q2, partially offset by an increase in gross profit of $0.2 million in the Wireless segment as a result of operational cost reduction efforts in the second half of FY2020.Operating expenses for the year increased $1.8 million to $8.2 million compared with $6.4 million last year. The increase is attributable to having four full quarters of Wireless expense in 2020 versus three quarters in 2019, as the Fulton acquisition concluded in the second quarter of 2019. Additionally, the Company incurred one-time facility costs as a result of moving into Triton’s new facility in the first fiscal quarter of 2020 and additional operating personnel costs.Selling, general and administrative expenses increased $1.3 million to $11.2 million for the year compared with $10.0 million last year. Of this increase, $0.9 million is attributable to having four full quarters of Wireless expense in 2020 versus three quarters in 2019, as the Fulton acquisition concluded in the second quarter of 2019. This increase is partially offset by a decrease of $0.4 million in general and administrative personnel costs in the Telco segment.Impairment of intangibles including goodwill was $8.7 million in the Telco segment in the second fiscal quarter. The Company determined that changes in the economy related to the COVID-19 pandemic and the continued losses experienced in the Telco segment had caused the carrying amounts on our books for intangible assets, including goodwill, to exceed their fair values. Therefore, after performing the appropriate valuations, the Company recorded a $3.9 million impairment charge for intangible assets and $4.8 million for goodwill in the Telco segment.Net loss for the year was $17.3 million, or loss of $1.55 per diluted share, compared with a net loss $5.3 million, or loss of $0.51 per diluted share, for the prior year. The current year net loss includes one-time charges to the Telco segment including the $8.7 million write-off of intangible assets and goodwill and a $0.7 million impairment related to a right of use asset for a facility that we no longer use. Also in the Telco segment, the Company had inventory obsolescence charges of $1.8 million for the year compared to $0.7 million for prior year. The Company recognized a $1.2 million tax benefit for the year ended 2020, compared to a tax benefit of $13 thousand for the prior year. The prior-year included approximately $1.3 million in losses from discontinued operations.Adjusted EBITDA for the year was a loss of $7.0 million compared with a loss of $2.3 million for the same period of 2019.Balance sheetCash and cash equivalents were $8.4 million as of September 30, 2020, compared with $1.6 million as of September 30, 2019. As of September 30, 2020, the Company had inventories of $5.8 million, compared with $7.6 million as of September 30, 2019.Outstanding debt was $8.0 million as of September 30, 2020 comprised of $2.8 million on a revolving line of credit (LOC), $4.1 million of notes payable and $1.1 million in financing leases compared with no debt as of September 30, 2019. At September 30, 2020, notes payable were comprised of $1.2 million notes payable with our primary banker, which correlate to payments that we will receive from the $3.8 million promissory note receivable balance from the 2019 sale of our cable business, and $2.9 million on our Payroll Protection Program (PPP) loan. We have applied for forgiveness of the PPP loan. ____________________________________1 Working Capital is defined as Current Assets minus Current LiabilitiesEarnings Conference CallDate:Thursday, December 17, 2020 Time:9 a.m. Eastern Toll-free Dial-in Number:1-855-327-6837 International Dial-in Number:1-631-891-4304 Conference ID:10012176    A replay of the conference call will be available through December 31, 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA as presented also excludes impairment charges for operating lease right of use assets, intangible assets including goodwill, stock compensation expense, other income, other expense, interest income and income from equity method investment. Management believes providing Adjusted EBITDA is presented below because this metric is used by the financial community as a method of measuring our financial performance and of evaluating the market value of companies considered to be in similar businesses.

Adjusted EBITDA, as calculated in the table below, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA is not necessarily a measure of our ability to fund our cash needs.Contacts: ADDvantage Technologies Group, Inc. 1221 E.
