ELECTRONIC TELE-COMMUNICATIONS, INC.	Symbol – ETCIA

Electronic Tele-Communications, Inc. (ETC) today reported its fourth quarter 2010 results. Sales for the quarter were $364,918 compared to $331,185 for the 2009 fourth quarter. The net earnings for the quarter were $4,570 or $0.00 per Class A common share, compared to a net loss of $84,492 or $0.03 per Class A common share for the fourth quarter of 2009.

Sales for the 2010 year were $1,658,605 compared to 2009 sales of $1,560,723. The net loss for 2010 was $36,941 or $0.01 per Class A common share, compared to a loss of $347,241 or $0.14 per Class A common share for 2009.

Commenting on the results, ETC President Dean Danner said, “ETC had positive earnings in both the third and fourth quarter of 2010 as we have begun to see some improvement in our market segments, although limited by customer budgets at the end of the year. These results are encouraging, but we remain cautious of continued weakness in both the telecommunications equipment market and the time / temperature announcement services market. Sales of our Emcee systems have continued to improve into the first quarter of 2011, while the cost reduction steps taken in 2010 help control our operating expenses.”

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.
