Key Tronic Corporation Announces Results for the Second Quarter of Fiscal Year 2020


SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash., Feb. 04, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Key Tronic Corporation (Nasdaq: KTCC), a provider of electronic manufacturing services (EMS), today announced its results for the quarter ended December 28, 2019.

For the second quarter of fiscal year 2020, Key Tronic reported total revenue of $116.7 million, compared to $123.0 million in the same period of fiscal year 2019. For the first six months of fiscal year 2020, total revenue was $222.0 million, compared to $250.5 million in the same period of fiscal year 2019.

For the second quarter of fiscal year 2020, net income was $0.8 million or $0.08 per share, compared to net income of $1.6 million or $0.15 per share for the same period of fiscal year 2019. For the first six months of fiscal year 2020, net income was $2.4 million or $0.22 per share, compared to $3.2 million or $0.29 per share for the same period of fiscal year 2019.

As previously announced, the lower than anticipated earnings for the second quarter of fiscal 2020 was primarily a result of increased factory spending in the Company’s Juarez metal fabrication departments. This spending was necessitated by both new and existing customers exiting their manufacturing arrangements in China and ramping their production in Juarez. While the financial effect on Key Tronic was significant, the long-term relationship with these customers was strengthened by the performance of the Juarez facility under extreme pressure. Additionally, the Company incurred unfavorable foreign currency losses related to its unhedged portion of Mexican labor expenses due to a strengthening peso over the quarter.

The unanticipated increase in factory spending discussed above adversely impacted the Company’s margins. For the second quarter of fiscal year 2020, gross margin was 7.0% and operating margin was 1.3%, compared to 8.0% and 2.1%, respectively, in the same period of fiscal 2019.

“Moving into the third quarter of fiscal 2020, the need for increased factory spending has diminished and we see potential revenue and earnings growth in coming periods,” said Craig Gates, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Furthermore, uncertainty over tariffs and trade tension between the US and China continues to drive a number of existing and new customers to accelerate their plans to transition from China facilities to our expanding facilities in Mexico and Vietnam. While this transition caused delays in production during the first half of fiscal 2020, we see it as a very positive trend over the longer term, as customers see the increasing advantages of our North American and Vietnam based production.”

“During the second quarter of fiscal 2020, we continued to win significant new business from EMS competitors and from existing customers, including new programs involving consumer medical devices, Wi-Fi enabled signage and temperature control devices. To prepare for growth in coming quarters, we have invested in the capacity of our Mexico, US and new Vietnam facilities, including a significant increase in our sheet metal capacity to address demand. We remain optimistic about our opportunities for growth in the second half of fiscal 2020 and beyond.”

Business Outlook

For the third quarter of fiscal year 2020, Key Tronic expects to report revenue in the range of $117 million to $121 million, and earnings in the range of $0.12 to $0.17 per diluted share. These expected results assume an effective tax rate of 20% in the quarter. Key Tronic is working closely with its employees and key suppliers to ascertain delays attributable to the recent outbreak of coronavirus in China.  Potential delays in production and extended transit times of critical parts could significantly impact results in each of our production facilities.
