RELM President and Chief Executive Officer David Storey commented, "We were pleased with the improvement in our 2012 financial and operating results compared with the previous two years. We earned operating income totaling $2.9 million, or 10.5% of sales and closed the year with three consecutive profitable quarters. Sales showed improvement, increasing by $3.5 million, or 14.4%, from the prior year. The sales growth was fueled by our P25 digital products, both KNG and legacy models. Significantly, the growth was broad-based, including new state and local government customers as well as international customers. These sales gains were made possible by the diversity of our KNG product line that has increased our addressable market through all the primary frequencies and P25 trunking. Increased sales volumes, a strong mix of digital products and manufacturing refinements enabled us to realize increased gross profit margins relative to the past two years. Meanwhile, we continued to effectively manage our operating costs as selling, general and administrative expenses declined by 5.7%."
Mr. Storey continued, "For 2013 our top priority and focus remains sales growth and building upon the momentum established in 2012. We have established a foot-hold and forged a positive reputation with some new customers. Now we must capitalize on those successes to increase market share. I believe with our people and products, we can achieve our goals."
