RF Industries Second Quarter Net Income Increases 23% To $0.06 Per Share; Net Sales Increase 16%

RF Wireless Segment sales increased 188% to $238,000 from $82,000 in the second quarter last year. Operating losses for this business segment narrowed to $159,000 from $191,000 in the second quarter last year.

"During the second quarter, our RF Neulink Division finalized engineering and development expenses for its NL900S wireless transceiver, which received FCC Certification and has commenced initial production. While the RF Wireless segment continues to lose money, we are encouraged by new orders at Neulink and a significant increase in requests for product and system installation pricing from a number of domestic and international firms. We will continue to evaluate the future of this operation on a quarterly basis," said Hill.

First Half Review

RF Connector and Cable Assembly sales increased 11% to $6,870,000 in the first half of fiscal 2011 compared to $6,173,000 in the same period last year.
