eOn Communications (EONC) Reports Strong Fourth Quarter and Total Year Revenue with Fourth Quarter Profitability

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — eOn Communications Corporation((TM)) (Nasdaq: EONC) (the “Company”), a leading provider of telecommunications solutions, today reported fourth quarter and fiscal year ended July 31, 2009 results.

Fourth quarter revenue increased 217% to $5,089,000 from $1,604,000 in the fourth quarter of last year and increased 106% compared to revenues of $2,465,000 in the third quarter of this year. Net income for the quarter was $111,000 or $0.04 per common share compared to a net loss of $338,000 or $0.12 per common share in the quarter ended July 31, 2008. Included in the net income for the quarter was $480,000 of imputed interest expense due to the amortization of the difference between the face value of the contingent obligation to the former Cortelco shareholders and the discounted present value of the note payable recorded on the balance sheet. Net income for the quarter excluding the impact of the imputed interest expense was $591,000 or $0.22 per common share.

Total year revenue increased 52% to $10,645,000 from $6,994,000 in fiscal year 2008. Net loss for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2009 was $339,000 or $0.12 per common share compared to net loss of $3,452,000 or $1.27 per common share for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2008. Net income for the year excluding the impact of the imputed interest expense was $141,000 or $0.05 per common share.

eOn’s operating results for the quarter ended July 31, 2009 represent the second consecutive profitable quarter. Financial results for the current fiscal year include net income of $430,000 of Cortelco Systems Holding Corp., which was acquired on April 1, 2009.

Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities increased 18% to $3,010,000 from $2,545,000 as of July 31, 2008.

“I would like to thank everyone in the organization for their continued efforts to return eOn Communications to profitability,” commented Mr. David S. Lee, Chairman of eOn’s Board of Directors. “For the fourth quarter of 2009 all divisions (eOn US, Cortelco and eOn China) were profitable resulting in net earnings per share of $0.22 before imputed interest expense. With our recent reorganization and merger with Cortelco, I feel that the company is now positioned to achieve positive results going forward.”

The Company also today announces that its Annual Shareholder Meeting will be held at 2:00 PM on December 8, 2009 at the Company’s offices in San Jose, CA. Shareholders of record as of November 6, 2009 will be entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting.
