ELECTRONIC TELE-COMMUNICATIONS, INC. Symbol – ETCIA

Electronic Tele-Communications, Inc. (ETC) today reported its third quarter 2010 results. Sales for the quarter were $510,465 compared to $383,102 for the 2009 third quarter. The net earnings for the quarter were $80,311 or $0.03 per Class A common share, compared to a net loss of $77,274 or $0.03 per Class A common share for the third quarter of 2009.

Sales for the first nine months of 2010 were $1,293,687 compared to sales of $1,229,538 in the first nine months of 2009. The loss for the first nine months of 2010 was $41,511 or $0.02 per Class A common share, compared to a loss of $262,749 or $0.10 per Class A common share for the first nine months of 2009.

Commenting on the results, ETC President Dean Danner said, “Positive earnings in the third quarter are encouraging, but continuing weakness in both the telecommunications equipment market and the time / temperature announcement services market continues to be a concern. Increased sales of our Emcee systems in the quarter coupled with the cost reduction steps taken earlier in the year contributed to the improved results.”

Electronic Tele-Communications supplies voice announcers and Voice Application Platforms to domestic and foreign telephone utilities under the Audichron® and Digicept® brand names. ETC also supports a network of Time Weather and Temperature systems installed throughout the United States. ETC's equipment provides a wide range of audio information and call handling services via telephone networks, computer networks, and the Internet.
