For the fourth quarter, net income from continuing operations was $716,000 or $0.03 per diluted share, compared to net income from continuing operations of $358,000, or $0.02 per diluted share for the prior year period, an increase of 100%.

Paul Genova, CEO of Wireless Telecom Group, Inc. stated “With the advent of 4G and LTE, broadband capacity and coverage is expected to grow significantly over the next few years and we have targeted this market as a significant growth segment on which to focus the Company’s resources. Accordingly, we have revised our financial reporting to include two reportable segments, network solutions and test & measurement. The increase in consolidated revenue for 2011 was the result of strong demand in our network solutions segment where revenue increased 50% to $12,968,388, while revenue in the test and measurement segment decreased 13% to $13,855,052 for 2011 due to an overall softness in government order activity during the first half of the year.”

Genova continued, “By focusing on each of these segments and their related markets, combined with continued strategic cost reduction and asset allocation efforts, we believe we have positioned the Company for continued improvements in revenue and net income.”
