Wireless Telecom Group Announces First Quarter Financial Results

PARSIPPANY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Wireless Telecom Group, Inc. (NYSE MKT: WTT) announced today results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2013, the Company reported net sales of $6,797,000, compared to $6,902,000 for the same period in 2012, a decrease of 1.5%.

The Company also reported net income of $346,000 or $0.01 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2013, compared to net income of $656,000, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2012, a decrease of 47.2%.

Paul Genova, CEO of Wireless Telecom Group, Inc., stated, "Despite experiencing softness in our Test and Measurement business segment during the first quarter, we continue to see growth in our Network Solutions business segment, particularly for products sold into distributed antenna systems. Revenue in our Network Solution segment increased by 14% compared to the same quarter of the prior year and order activity continues to be robust, as evidenced by strong order bookings during the period and an increased backlog."

Genova continued, "Net income for the quarter was affected by higher operating expenses due in part to ongoing investment in our Network Solutions business in anticipation of increased future revenue."

Continued Genova, "We will continue to execute our strategic plan and remain highly focused on improving overall results and maximizing shareholder value."
