Tel-Instrument Electronics Corp. Reports Aeroflex Appeal Loss

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.--()--Tel-Instrument Electronics Corp. (“Tel-Instrument,” “TIC,” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: TIKK), a leading designer and manufacturer of avionics test and measurement solutions, today reported that the Kansas Appeals Court has rejected each of TIC’s appeal arguments in the Aeroflex litigation.

Mr. Jeffrey O’Hara, Tel-Instrument’s President and CEO commented, “Despite strong legal arguments, the Kansas Appeals Court elected to uphold the jury verdict in its entirety. This will entail TIC paying the full $6.45 million judgment and accrued interest amount. In our view, TIC won the Army TS-4530A competition by providing a better product at a lower price. Defending a N.J. company in the Kansas state court system was always an uphill battle but we are still disappointed by the final decision. From a practical standpoint, losing the appeal will not affect our net worth as the damages have already been fully accrued. It will also end the judgment amount interest accrual which has been a significant drag on profitability. We are looking forward to improved results for this fiscal year and steady growth going forward.”
