ELK GROVE VILLAGE, Ill., March 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SigmaTron International, Inc. (SGMA), an electronic manufacturing services company, today reported revenues and earnings for the third quarter ended January 31, 2019.

Revenues increased to $68.8 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2019 from $65.7 million for the same quarter in the prior year. Net loss for the quarter was $595,526 compared to a net income of $31,338 for the same period in the prior year. Basic and diluted loss per share were each $0.14 for the quarter ended January 31, 2019, compared to basic and diluted earnings per share each of $0.01 for the same quarter in fiscal 2018.

For the nine months ended January 31, 2019, revenues increased to $217.3 million compared to $209.9 million for the same period in the prior year. Net loss for the nine month period ended January 31, 2019 was $1,846,074 compared to net income of $1,150,335 for the same period in the prior year. Basic and diluted loss per share for the nine months ended January 31, 2019, were each $0.44, compared to basic and diluted earnings per share each of $0.27 for the nine months ended January 31, 2018.

Commenting on SigmaTron’s third quarter, fiscal 2019 results, Gary R. Fairhead, President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board, said, “Our disappointing results continued in the third quarter of fiscal 2019, tied directly to the issues noted in our second quarter fiscal 2019 press release. The trade dispute between the United States and China has continued with all of the negative issues attached to it. Customers continue to miss projections with many of them linking their reduced requirements to the trade dispute and associated tariffs. The tariffs impact cash flow, increase overhead costs and continue to drive customers to look at alternative supply chain solutions which creates inefficiencies. Finally, the trade war has created significant uncertainty regarding short-term plans with our customers on items such as new program launches.”

“In conjunction with the issues associated with the trade war with China, the new Mexican administration did increase the nationwide compensation structure / minimum wage effective January 1, 2019. This change created some short-term increased costs and will continue to have a negative effect on our cost structure going forward.

“We have addressed these issues and required price increases where necessary with customers. Some discussions are completed and others are expected to be complete in the fourth quarter.

“Regarding the component marketplace availability lead times, deliveries and price increases continue but they are fewer and farther between. In fact for some component classes, lead times have shortened.

“For the first nine months of fiscal 2019, we have posted a pre-tax loss of $922,695. Of that amount, $379,000 was a non-cash accrual related to currency fluctuations. While the year has been difficult due to external issues and resultant revenue misses, we have been able to manage much of the volatility. We posted a small profit in January and remained in compliance with our bank covenants at the end of the third quarter. Based on our current backlog for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, we should see revenue increase compared to the third quarter and we expect that trend to continue. While I am optimistic regarding the current backlog, the trade war with China will continue to weigh heavily on our operations short-term. Hopefully it will be resolved soon.”
