HUDSON, N.H.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Micronetics, Inc. (NASDAQ:NOIZNews) today reported results for its thirteen and thirty-nine weeks ended December 26, 2009.

Net sales for the third quarter (Q3 FY2010) were $9.0 million, an increase of 7% or $.6 million compared to $8.4 million for Q3 FY2009. The increase in net sales for Q3 FY2010 is primarily due to integrated component sub-systems. Sales of components were approximately equal to last year with increases in high power amplifiers and an existing space based contract offset by declines in other components.

For Q3 FY2010 the Company reported net income of $504,143 or $0.11 per diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $9.4 million or $1.96 per diluted share for Q3 FY2009. The net loss for Q3 FY2009 was primarily attributable to a non-cash goodwill and intangible asset impairment charge of $9.3 million.

Net sales for the thirty-nine weeks ended December 26, 2009 were $25.7 million, an increase of 17% or $3.7 million compared to $22.0 million for the thirty-nine weeks ended December 27, 2008. The increase in net sales is primarily attributable to an increase in sales of integrated component sub-systems for jamming and electronic modernization of approximately $2.1 million, an RFID beta test product sale of $.7 million and sales related to a space based contract of $1.0 million.

For the thirty-nine weeks ended December 26, 2009, the Company reported net income of $678,401 or $0.15 per diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $9.3 million or $1.88 per diluted share for the thirty-nine weeks ended December 27, 2008.
