WAUKESHA, WISCONSIN, February 28,2014 	OTC – Pink Sheets

Electronic Tele-Communications, Inc. (ETC) today reported its fourth quarter 2013 results. Sales for the quarter were $431,846 compared to $615,667 for the 2012 fourth quarter. The net earnings for the quarter were $35,696 or $0.01 per Class A common share, compared to net earnings of $85,481 or $0.04 per Class A common share for the fourth quarter of 2012.

Sales for the 2013 year were $1,715,142 compared to 2012 sales of $1,994,943. The net earnings for 2013 were $147,511 or $0.06 per Class A common share, compared to earnings of $189,201 or $0.08 per Class A common share for 2012.

Commenting on the results, ETC President Dean Danner said, “2013 sales were adversely impacted by the government sequester resulting the delay of some customer projects. In spite of this impact we generated positive earnings for both the quarter and the year. The first quarter 2014 has already started stronger than the end of last year based on current and projected bookings. We are cautiously encouraged by the market activity and anticipate our market remaining positive in 2014.”
