Tel-Instrument Electronics Corp Announces Final First Quarter Results For 2014 Fiscal Year and Retention of OEM Capital to Explore Strategic Options For The Company

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Tel Instrument Electronics Corp. (Tel) announced today that it recorded a net loss of $85,772 on sales of $3.2 million as compared to a net loss of $668,800 on sales of $1.2 million in the year ago quarter. This improvement is mostly attributed to the resumption of shipments on the CRAFT program as well as improved sales of other products including a partial production release on the TS-4530A program. The Company is expecting continued revenue and profitability growth for the balance of this fiscal year as a result of higher shipments on the U.S. Army TS-4530A and U.S. Navy ITATS programs.

The Company also announced that it has retained OEM Capital as its exclusive financial advisor to explore strategic alternatives, including debt recapitalization, merger, sale or business combination of the Company with a third party with a goal to enhance shareholder value. There can be no assurance that any transaction will occur, and there is no defined timeline for the process. The Company does not intend to comment further regarding the process until such time, if any, as the Company determines that disclosure is appropriate or required.
