Electronic Tele-Communications, Inc. (ETC) today reported its third quarter 2013 results. Sales for the quarter were $358,173 compared to $575,299 for the 2012 third quarter. The net earnings for the quarter were $3,628 or $0.00 per Class A common share, compared to net earnings of $81,783 or $0.03 per Class A common share for the third quarter of 2012.
Sales for the first nine months of 2013 were $1,283,296 compared to sales of $1,379,276 in the first nine months of 2012. Earnings for the first nine months of 2013 were $111,815 or $0.04 per Class A common share, compared to earnings of $100,606 or $0.04 per Class A common share for the first nine months of 2012.
Commenting on the results, ETC President Dean Danner said, “Sales in the third quarter slowed primarily due to timing issues, some of which were a result of government budget issues. In spite of the slowdown we were able to break even for the quarter and earnings for the year are slightly ahead of last year. The fourth quarter has started strong as we processed some of the budget delayed orders. We are cautiously encouraged by the market activity and anticipate positive earnings for the third year in a row.”
