EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.

Tel-Instrument Electronics Corp. (“Tel”, “Tel-Instrument” or the “Company”) (NYSE-MKT: TIK) announced that it plans to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the 2015 fiscal year ended March 31, 2015 during the week of June 22, 2015. For the first quarter ending June 30, 2015, Tel expects revenues to exceed $5.5 million, representing a 75% increase over year ago revenues.

As previously communicated, Tel will report record fourth quarter revenues of $6.4 million, and expects solid profitability for the quarter. The results for the full year are still expected to show a modest loss as the improved results for the second half of the year did not fully offset the slow start during the prior fiscal year.

Tel is also announcing the introduction of its TR-36 Communications/Navigation test set for the commercial/military marketplace.

Jeff O’Hara, Tel’s President and CEO noted, “Our Company has done a solid job of improving its revenues and profitability during calendar year 2015, despite encountering continuing delays related to the U.S. Army’s authorization of full production for the TS-4530A SETS. Tel has met all of its contractual requirements for this program, but we continue to wait for final U.S. Army approvals, which we believe will occur in the next two months. We continue to aggressively compete for additional large domestic and overseas Mode 5 orders, and expect most of these orders to be placed in the 2016-2022 timeframe due to the January 1, 2020 mandate for decertifying Mode 4 IFF. Additionally, Tel continues to invest in research and development, and is diligently working on new commercial and military products to further broaden our product line. We are particularly excited to introduce the TR-36 Communications/Navigation test set, which is the initial commercial/military offshoot of our CRAFT product line. We believe that this new test set provides market leading test capabilities in a small rugged package and will be solid product for both commercial and military users.”
