WEST MELBOURNE, Florida — August 4, 2015 — RELM Wireless Corporation (NYSE MKT: RWC) today announced its financial and operating results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2015, sales totaled approximately $6.6 million, compared with $9.1 million for the second quarter last year. Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 was approximately $78,000, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share, compared with approximately $672,000, or $0.05 per basic and diluted share, for the same quarter last year.

Gross profit margin for the second quarter 2015 was 36.2% of sales, compared with 42.8% of sales for the same quarter last year. Selling, general and administrative expenses totaled approximately $2.3 million (34.6% of sales) for the second quarter 2015, compared with $2.8 million (31.3% of sales) for the second quarter last year.

The Company had approximately $29.8 million in working capital as of June 30, 2015, of which $15.1 million was comprised of cash and trade receivables. This compares with working capital of $28.9 million as of December 31, 2014, of which $14.6 million was comprised of cash and trade receivables. The Company had no balance outstanding under its revolving credit facility at June 30, 2015.

RELM President and Chief Executive Officer David Storey commented, “After a strong first quarter, soft demand in the federal, state and local government markets yielded a sales decline in the second quarter, which was the primary contributor to reduced net income. Government procurements can be impacted by various factors including agency budgets and funding priorities, making the timing of orders unpredictable. I remain encouraged, however, by our funnel of sales prospects for coming months and quarters. We have noted recent increases in quoting activity, and although our most significant sales prospects have been delayed, they remain as viable opportunities. Accordingly, we are continuing to expand our sales resources and capabilities to capitalize on these opportunities and drive sales growth.”

For the six months ended June 30, 2015, sales totaled approximately $15.2 million compared with $16.9 million for the same period last year. Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2015 totaled approximately $617,000, or $0.05 per basic and $0.04 per diluted share, compared with $1.1 million, or $0.08 per basic and diluted share, for the same period last year.

Gross profit margins for the six months ended June 30, 2015 were 40.0% of sales, versus 41.6% of sales for the same period last year. Selling, general and administrative expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2015 totaled approximately $5.2 million compared with approximately $5.4 million for the same period last year.
