Electronic Tele-Communications, Inc. (ETC) today reported its second quarter 2013 results. Sales for the quarter were $489,259 compared to $322,928 for the 2012 second quarter. The net earnings for the quarter were $108,054 or $0.04 per Class A common share, compared to a net loss of $27,822 or $0.01 per Class A common share for the second quarter of 2012.
Sales for the first six months of 2013 were $925,123 compared to sales of $803,977 in the first six months of 2012. Earnings for the first six months of 2013 were $108,187 or $0.04 per Class A common share, compared to earnings of $18,823 or $0.01 per Class A common share for the first six months of 2012.
Results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 included a $90,075 gain on the sale of an investment, which is contained in the other income line for both periods. The one-time investment gain is related to the sale of securities the company was holding from a previously terminated pension plan. Without the investment gain, the net income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 would have been $17,979 and $18,112 respectively, or $.01 per Class A share.
Commenting on the results, ETC President Dean Danner said, "Sales for both the second quarter and the six months were among the best they have been for several years. Improved sales were partially offset by increased operating expenses mostly related to increased sales expenses and work to obtain additional certifications on our products. ETC anticipates that the second half of 2013 will continue to generate positive earnings."
