The earnings announcement looks pretty good overall. AVT bought back 1.1 million shares at an average cost of around $9/share, so obviously they feel the stock is undervalued at the current price of $6. They have no debt and $85 million in cash on the balance sheet, so another buyback is certainly a possibility. The $85 million represents almost $3/share in cash, so at $6/share the stock certainly seems cheap for a company that is making a pretty good profit in spite of a slowdown in their business.

The new CEO stated, "Although the dynamics of the market remain challenging, we continue to believe that we have a sound business model and ongoing market advantages in the areas of AVT products, services and distribution." I interpret this to mean that AVT is in a temporary slowdown at the moment, but the long term outlook is fine. We should get more details in the replay of the conference call.

The phone number to listen to the conference call replay is 800 633-8284, access # 15635016.

Fukai mentioned, as AVT management has done in the past, that in 1999 many companies spent 2 or 3 times their normal year's communication budgets, and things are now slow as a result. The transition from PBX to IP telelphony is also adding to the current weakness in sales. However, Fukai pointed out that AVT is not losing market share to the competition in any key markets, and that the current slowdown is purely due to marketwide conditions, which will eventually improve. Meanwhile, AVT continues to make money, has no debt, and has almost $3/sh in cash. Fukai stated his belief that all their markets have good potential growth and that AVT has the best products. He stated that the worst is over and there would be quarterly sequential growth in sales in all the company's business segments going forward. I don't look for AVT to do much in the near term but as sales continue to pick up eventually the stock will come back.

Buyback/conference call

In the conference call management was asked why they bought back so few shares last quarter even though the stock price is so low. The reason is that because of their self imposed narrow window period, they will only trade the stock in the month after earnings have been announced, and not in the two months prior to the next announcement. Management strongly implied in the call that next week they will be back in the market buying shares, so hopefully that will get the stock moving. BTW, the number to call to listen to the conference call replay is 800 633-8284, code # 16209149. You can also go to the company's web site to listen to the replay.

Plastics Make It Possible(R) Unveils Recycling Vending Machine at New York Fashion Week
AVT Designed System Makes News Across the Nation as a Shining Example of the Growing $1.1 Trillion Automated Retailing Market

CORONA, Calif., Oct. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AVT, Inc. (OTC Markets: AVTC) (www.autoretail.com), a leader in automated retailing systems, micro-stores and kiosks, announced that an innovative self-service recycling redemption system they designed, was on display for three days during New York Fashion Week. During this high-visibility event, consumers could "buy" a limited edition designer T-shirt from the machine, by using a plastic bottle as currency. Anyone passing by could simply deposit a plastic bottle into the machine and a beautiful new garment made with recycled plastics was dispensed.

The new machine was built for Plastics Make it Possible, who partnered with New York fashion designer Allison Parris for the debut of the automated redemption center, which was located by Columbus Circle on 8(th) Avenue.

The AVT-designed system was located in one of the most densely populated areas of New York City, with an estimated 350,000 pedestrians and another 115,000 drivers/passengers passing through each day.

Celebrities like Perez Hilton stopped by the vending machine to recycle beverage bottles and receive a trendy t-shirt. The online gossip columnist even posted a short video on Instagram with the comment: "The coolest thing ever on the street of #nyc!"

"We are thrilled to be a part of this event and help raise awareness for recycling," Shannon Illingworth, Founder and Chairman of AVT said. "We look forward to building many more of these innovative machines that give people an easy way to recycle, while getting something fun in return."

The initiative was sponsored by America's Plastics Makers(TM) of the American Chemistry Council.
