SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash., Jan. 27, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Key Tronic Corporation (Nasdaq:KTCC), a provider of electronic manufacturing services (EMS), today announced its results for the three months ended December 27, 2014. The Company's results were in-line with its previous guidance
For the second quarter of fiscal year 2015, Key Tronic reported total revenue of $114.3 million, up 46% from $78.3 million in the same period of fiscal year 2014. Results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2015 include approximately $39 million in revenue from CDR Manufacturing, Inc. (dba Ayrshire Electronics), which was acquired on September 3, 2014. For the first six months of fiscal year 2015, total revenue was $200.7 million, compared to $156.2 million in the same period of fiscal year 2014.
As expected, the Company had a strong sequential improvement in operating efficiencies. For the second quarter of fiscal year 2015, gross margin was 8% and operating margin was 2%, up from 5% and (2%), respectively, in the first quarter of fiscal year 2015.
Net income for the second quarter of fiscal year 2015 was $1.6 million or $0.14 per share, which included a R&D tax benefit of approximately $0.02 per share. This compares to net income of $3.1 million or $0.27 per share for the second quarter of fiscal year 2014, which included a benefit of $1.5 million or $0.13 per share due to a change in Mexican tax law. For the first six months of fiscal year 2015, net income was $103,000 or $0.01 per share, compared to $4.8 million or $0.43 per share for the same period of fiscal year 2014.
"We're pleased to see our recent acquisition of Ayrshire continue to make significant contributions to our progress by expanding our capabilities, revenue and customer base," said Craig Gates, President and Chief Executive Officer. "At the end of the second quarter of fiscal year 2015, we were generating revenue from 164 distinct customers, up from 57 customers a year ago.
"At the same time, we continue to see a robust pipeline of potential new business and have further diversified our future revenue base during the second quarter by winning new customer programs involving consumer products, commercial printers and gaming equipment. Moreover, Ayrshire customers continue to award us with additional business because of our combined capabilities and global logistics. Moving into the third quarter of fiscal year 2015, we expect to see increased operating efficiencies and profitability, as our new programs continue to grow and our product mix and margins return to normal patterns."
For the third quarter of fiscal year 2015, the Company expects to report revenue in the range of $108 million to $116 million, and earnings in the range of $0.13 to $0.18 per diluted share. These expected results assume an effective tax rate of 35%.
