Tel-Instrument Electronics Corp. Reports Financial Results For First Quarter FY 2024

East Rutherford, NJ – August 11, 2023 – Tel-Instrument Electronics Corp. (“Tel-Instrument,” “TIC,” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: TIKK), a leading designer and manufacturer of avionics test and measurement solutions, today reported a net income of $295K ($0.07 per basic and $0.06 per diluted share) on revenues of $2.9 million for the first quarter of 2024 fiscal year, ended June 30, 2023.

Notes On First Quarter:

·   Revenues for the first quarter were $2.9 million, a 27% increase from $2.3 million in the year-ago quarter.

·   The gross margin percentage increased to 45% versus 37% in the year-ago quarter.

·   Operating expenses decreased by $205K, a 19% decline versus the year ago level as a result of funded engineering projects.

·   Operating income was $420K as compared to an operating loss of $244K in the year ago quarter.

·   Net income was $295K or $0.07 per share, compared to net loss of $233K or $(0.10) per share in the year-ago quarter.

·   The Company recorded $706K in positive cash-flow from operating activities for the quarter with cash balances improving to $6.5 million.

·   Backlog decreased to $5.3 million at the end of the first quarter, a $1.2 million decrease from the prior quarter-end.


Additionally, the Kansas Appellate Court denied our appeal motion on July 21, 2023. We continue to explore available options for next steps, including filing a further appeal.

Mr. Jeffrey O’Hara, Tel-Instrument’s President and CEO commented: “We were extremely disappointed with the decision of the Kansas Appellate Court and are currently evaluating whether to pay the full judgment amount or appeal the decision to the Kansas Supreme Court. We were pleased with the revenue growth and profitability for the first quarter, although parts availability and lead times continue to hamper production. We are predicting solid growth for the remainder of this fiscal year. Notable orders received in the second quarter include a $875k TS-4530A software upgrade project for the U.S. Army and a $1.7 million order for Germany for T-4530i units. This T-4530i order has been received by our European distributor and we are waiting for them to issue the purchase order to TIC. We have also submitted a quote for 111 MADL test sets totaling $1.5 million and we expect a contract award this year. Additionally, TIC has $2 million of remaining funding for the CRAFT ECP. The Test Readiness Review (“TRR”) will take place late in the Spring of 2024 and this is expected to generate an additional $1.2 million of revenues. The production contract should commence later next year and is expected to generate annual revenues of up to $5 million per year. The SDR/OMNI continues to receive positive reviews from our customers, and we expect larger volume orders to start this Fall.

From a cash perspective, we have sufficient liquidity to pay the Aeroflex judgment amount in full if we elect not to appeal. TIC’s Board has also indicated its willingness to invest additional capital if needed to support our growth plans.
