NORTH YORK, February 28, 2024 - ZTEST Electronics Inc. (“ZTEST” or the “Company”) (CSE - “ZTE”) is pleased to announce that the Company has achieved record revenue and net income for the six month period ending December 31, 2023. 


Revenue for the six-month period was $4,339,403, an increase of 88% year over year. Net income for the six months was $676,213, as compared to a loss of $221,992 in the same period last year. EBITDA for the six months was $940,687, a notable increase from EBITDA of ($73,323) to December 31, 2022. 


This represents the fourth consecutive quarter for which revenues have increased and the Company has reported a net profit for the period.  These results have allowed the Company to continue to add to its capital under management and to further enhance its working capital position by growing current financial assets at a faster pace than current financial liabilities. 


The Company continually monitors its production capabilities and capacities and determined it to be prudent to acquire additional equipment to augment what is already in use. New machinery has been ordered which is currently being manufactured outside of Canada and is expected to be delivered, installed, and fully operational in the final quarter of 2024. 


“We believe that the investments we have made provide a solid foundation for sustainable valuecreation in the years ahead. We are taking actions to position the Company to realize the full benefits of our investments going forward. We expect to continue to grow our customer base, expand operating margins, increase EBITDA and improve cash flow generation”, said Steve Smith, CEO.
