Electronic Tele-Communications, Inc. (ETC) today reported its first quarter 2012 results. Sales for the quarter were $481,049 compared to $380,649 for the 2011 first quarter. The net earnings for the quarter were $46,645 or $0.02 per Class A common share, compared to a net loss of $25,371 or $0.01 per Class A common share for the first quarter of 2011.

Commenting on the results, ETC President Dean Danner said, “We are encouraged by the continuation of the positive sales trend that began in the third quarter of 2011. Steady sales coupled with operational changes implemented over the last couple of years have enabled ETC to generate positive earnings for three consecutive quarters and the 2011 year. Our markets are still unpredictable but have shown some signs of more stability over the last nine months, including steady sales of our Emcee system.”
