Electronic Tele-Communications, Inc. (ETC) today reported its fourth quarter 2012 results. Sales for the quarter were $615,667 compared to $486,844 for the 2011 fourth quarter. The net earnings for the quarter were $88,595 or $0.04 per Class A common share, compared to net earnings of $66,223 or $0.03 per Class A common share for the fourth quarter of 2011.

Sales for the 2012 year were $1,994,943 compared to 2011 sales of $1,657,407. The net earnings for 2012 were $189,201 or $0.08 per Class A common share, compared to earnings of $90,002 or $0.04 per Class A common share for 2011.

Commenting on the results, ETC President Dean Danner said, “We are proud to announce that 2012 was ETC’s best year of operating results in many years. Sales were the highest they have been since 2007, and net earnings the highest in over 10 years. Our market segments are improving, and we are generating positive cash flow. These positive results will provide ETC more flexibility in both marketing and engineering. We still have debt to repay and the market remains somewhat erratic and therefore unpredictable, but 2012 was a good year and early indications are that 2013 will be good as well.”
