Trio-Tech Reports Second Quarter Net Income of $0.11 Per Diluted Share

·10 min read

First Half Net Income of $0.19 Per Diluted Share

Trio-Tech International (NYSE American: TRT) today announced financial results for the second quarter and first six months of fiscal 2020.

Fiscal 2020 Second Quarter Results

For the three months ended December 31, 2019, net income increased 23% to $426,000, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared to $348,000, or $0.09 per diluted share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2019. Net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2020 included a $1,172,000 gain on the sale of assets held for sale. There were no corresponding gains in the same period last year.

Revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2020 decreased 8% to $8,962,000 compared to revenue of $9,690,000 for the same quarter last year. Manufacturing revenue was $3,045,000, a 9% decrease compared to $3,352,000 a year earlier. Semiconductor testing services revenue decreased 12% to $3,887,000 compared to $4,393,000 last year. Distribution revenue increased 5% to $2,014,000 compared to $1,916,000 for the comparable quarter of fiscal 2019.

Gross margin for the second quarter of fiscal 2020 was $1,905,000, or 21% of revenue. This compares to gross margin of $2,258,000, or 23% of revenue, for the same quarter last year, reflecting lower manufacturing and testing services sales.

Operating expenses increased 3% to $2,078,000, or 23% of revenue, for this year’s second quarter compared to $2,031,000, or 21% of revenue, last year. Operating expenses increased primarily due to a doubtful debt provision in the Singapore manufacturing segment.

CEO Comments

S.W. Yong, Trio-Tech's CEO, said, "While we are pleased to report an increase in net income for the second quarter and first half of fiscal 2020 primarily driven by asset sales, our operating results continued to be affected by trade disputes as well as customer requests for delayed deliveries. As always, we are focused on delivering unparalleled customer service and the highest quality products to our customers as we strive to improve Trio-Tech’s operating performance."

Fiscal 2020 First Half Results

For the six months ended December 31, 2019, net income increased 69% to $699,000, or $0.19 per diluted share, which included the $1,172,000 gain on the sale of assets held for sale. This compares to net income of $413,000, or $0.11 per diluted share, for the six months ended December 31, 2018.

Revenue decreased 5% to $18,785,000 compared to revenue of $19,735,000 for the first half of the last fiscal year. Manufacturing revenue decreased 9% to $6,362,000 compared to $6,989,000 for the same period in the last fiscal year. Semiconductor testing services revenue decreased 6% to $8,277,000 compared to $8,830,000 for the first six months of the prior fiscal year, while distribution revenue increased 7% to $4,113,000 compared to $3,860,000 for the first six months of the prior fiscal year.

Gross margin for the first six months of fiscal 2020 decreased 5% to $4,157,000, or 22% of revenue, compared to $4,359,000, or 22% of revenue, for last fiscal year’s first six months.

Operating expenses for the first six months of fiscal 2020 increased 2% to $4,108,000, or 22% of revenue, compared to $4,009,000, or 20% of revenue for the same period of last fiscal year.

Shareholders' equity at December 31, 2019 was $24,330,000, or $6.62 per outstanding share, compared to $23,666,000, or $6.44 per outstanding share, at June 30, 2019. There were approximately 3,673,055 Trio-Tech International common shares outstanding at December 31, 2019.
