RF Industries said it continues to see opportunities in the Tier-1 wireless carrier ecosystem as well as its OEM (original equipment manufacturer) segments

RF Industries Ltd (NASDAQ:RFIL) saw its shares boosted in after-hours trading on Wednesday, after the maker of radio frequency connectors reported its second quarter financial results on Wednesday.

In 2Q, the firm reported revenue of $13.6 million, a sequential boost of 28%, compared to the preceding first quarter, and compared to $20.5 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2018. The firm noted the year-over-year decline in sales was a result of the largest series of orders in company history in the year ago period. 

The firm reported net income of $1.1 million, or $0.11 per share, compared to net income of $3.2 million, or $0.34 per share, in the same period in 2018. The company reported cash and cash equivalents of $13.9 million as of April 30, 2019.

"We continue to see opportunities in the Tier-1 wireless carrier ecosystem and increased business from our distribution channels, while also seeing continued expansion in our OEM (original equipment manufacturer) segments," added Dawson. "Looking ahead, as we continue to execute on our long term growth plan we expect to achieve sequential and year-over-year sales increases in the current fiscal third quarter.”
