Tel-Instrument Electronics Corp. Reports Net Sales
of $3.17 Million for Third Quarter 2022

East Rutherford, NJ – February 11, 2022 – Tel-Instrument Electronics Corp. (“Tel” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: TIKK), a leading designer and manufacturer of avionics test and measurement solutions, today reported net income of $195K ($0.04 per common share) on revenues of $3.17 million for the third quarter of fiscal year 2022 ended December 31, 2021.

Highlights include:

·   Revenues for the third quarter increased to $3.17 million, a 19% increase from the year-ago quarter.
·   Quarterly operating expenses decreased 10% to $1.1 million due to tight cost controls and a funded engineering project.
·   Operating income increased to $293K for the current quarter as compared to a loss of $224K in the year-ago quarter.
·   Nine-month operating income increased to $1.4 million versus $327K in the year-ago period.
·   Nine-month net income increased to $1.77 million, or $0.47 per common share.
·   Cash balances improved to $7.3 million, compared to $5.5 million at the start of the fiscal year.
·   Net worth improved to $6.8 million compared to $5.2 million at the start of the fiscal year.

Mr. Jeffrey O’Hara, Tel-Instrument’s President and CEO commented, “The Company recorded a profitable third quarter despite ongoing supply chain interruptions. Vendor lead times doubling and tripling in some cases with no sign of improvement in sight. This is causing ongoing issues in manufacturing and will negatively impact fourth quarter revenues. We are ordering additional components from our vendors to take the extended lead times into account. The positive news is that we are in a strong financial position to weather this supply disruption. We are also excited by the positive initial reception we have seen from customers on the SDR/OMNI test set. We are still working through component shortages on this test set, but initial production deliveries are still expected to commence in the second quarter of calendar year 2022. We believe that this will be a strong competitor in both commercial and military avionic and communication test set markets. The Lockheed Martin F-35 MADL development program had a successful Critical Design Review (“CDR”) in December. This contract will generate non-recurring engineering revenues over the next several quarters and should result in ongoing production revenues in what is essentially a new market for TIC. We are also actively working with the U.S. Navy on a “mid-life” update of our CRAFT test sets which could result in significant revenues over the next three to seven years.

With respect to the Aeroflex litigation, the Kansas Appeals Court is still working remotely and is not able to access the documents due to security restrictions. Aeroflex recently filed a motion with the Appeals Court to substantially increase the Bond Amount from the $2 million existing amount. We have filed a strong counter to this motion and expect it to be denied.
