Electronic Tele-Communications, Inc. (ETC) today reported its fourth quarter 2011 results. Sales for the quarter were $486,844 compared to $364,918 for the 2010 fourth quarter. The net earnings for the quarter were $65,698 or $0.03 per Class A common share, compared to net earnings of $4,570 or $0.00 per Class A common share for the fourth quarter of 2010.

Sales for the 2011 year were $1,657,407 compared to 2010 sales of $1,658,605. The net earnings for 2011 were $90,002 or $0.04 per Class A common share, compared to a loss of $36,941 or $0.01 per Class A common share for 2010.

Commenting on the results, ETC President Dean Danner said, "ETC’s earnings improved throughout 2011 ending the year with a profit for both the second half of 2011 and the full year. We have seen some improvement in our market segments, although the market remains erratic and therefore unpredictable. Sales of our Emcee systems have remained steady into the first quarter of 2012 and previously implemented controls on operating expenses are being maintained. Both cash flow and earnings are currently ahead of where we were at this time in 2011."
