Tel-Instrument Electronics Corp Announces Third Quarter Results, AIMS Testing Completed For The TS-4530A Program And Expected Production Release For The ITATS Program

Update of Major Programs

The Company has resolved the issues on the CRAFT program, and has received U.S. Navy approval to increase CRAFT production levels, and is now in the process of ramping up production. The Company has also started to receive additional orders from the Navy for additional CRAFT units. In February 2013, TIC received a $435,000 order for 16 CRAFT 719 units. TIC also expects additional orders from the Navy for CRAFT 708 units.

In February 2013, the TS-4530A test set completed testing conducted by the Department of Defense (DOD) AIMS Program Office on the TS-4530A Flight Line Test Set. TIC anticipates receipt of the official AIMS certification letter in the near future. With this critical milestone completed, TIC is working with the U.S. Army to secure a near-term production release as well as a progress payment. The TS-4530A program is a critical program with almost $20,000,000 of booked production orders.

The AN/ARM-206 ITATS development program is completed and the Company completed its Production Readiness Review with the U.S. Navy in February 2013. A production release is expected in the next two weeks. The Company currently has orders for 102 units for approximately $5.3 million. It is expected that shipments will commence in the first half of calendar year 2013.

If the Company is unable to obtain production releases within a reasonable period of time and/or our vendors or lenders begin to pursue legal action demanding payments, it would result in a material adverse effect on the Company’s operations and its ability to pay its obligations. As such, the Company may need to pursue additional sources of financing and/or additional progress payments.

TIC encourages everyone to read the full results of operations contained in the Form 10-Q filed on February 19, 2013 at sec.gov.
