WAUKESHA, WISCONSIN, April 30, 2013 	OTC – Pink Sheets

Electronic Tele-Communications, Inc. (ETC) today reported its first quarter 2013 results. Sales for the quarter were $435,864 compared to $481,049 for the 2012 first quarter. The net earnings for the quarter were $133 or $0.00 per Class A common share, compared to net earnings of $46,645 or $0.02 per Class A common share for the first quarter of 2012.

Commenting on the results, ETC President Dean Danner said, “Sales were down 10% during the first quarter of 2013 compared to 2012, but we anticipate improvement in the second quarter. Operating expenses increased during the quarter as we work to obtain additional certifications on our products to re-open market segments we have not participated in for a few years. Even with lower sales and higher product testing expenses we were able to break even for the quarter.”
