Electronic Tele-Communications, Inc. (ETC) today reported its first quarter 2015 results. Sales for the quarter were $183,110 compared to $492,735 for the 2014 first quarter. The net loss for the quarter was $170,547 or $0.07 per Class A common share, compared to net earnings of $16,084 or $0.01 per Class A common share for the first quarter of 2014.
Commenting on the results, ETC President Dean Danner said, “The drop in sales in both our public telecom and government equipment markets, as previously disclosed in our fourth quarter 2014 earnings release, was the primary cause of the losses in the first quarter of 2015. Until our markets return to historical levels ETC will be under financial pressure to reduce operating expenses. However, we intend to continue the work necessary to obtain product certifications required to supply our flagship products to several large communication service providers.”
