SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash., April 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Key Tronic Corporation (Nasdaq:KTCC), a provider of electronic manufacturing services (EMS), today announced its results for the three months ended March 28, 2015. The Company's results were in-line with its previous guidance.
For the third quarter of fiscal year 2015, Key Tronic reported total revenue of $112.9 million, up 47% from $77.0 million in the same period of fiscal year 2014. Results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2015 include approximately $37 million in revenue from CDR Manufacturing, Inc. (dba Ayrshire Electronics), which was acquired on September 3, 2014. For the first nine months of fiscal year 2015, total revenue was $313.6 million, up from $233.3 million in the same period of fiscal year 2014.
For the third quarter of fiscal year 2015, gross margin was 8% and operating margin was 2%, compared to 9% and 3%, respectively, in the same period of fiscal year 2014.
Net income for the third quarter of fiscal year 2015 was $1.9 million or $0.16 per share, up from $1.4 million or $0.12 per share for the third quarter of fiscal year 2014. For the first nine months of fiscal year 2015, net income was $2.0 million or $0.17 per share, compared to $6.2 million or $0.55 per share for the same period of fiscal year 2014.
"During the third quarter of fiscal year 2015, increasing revenue from our new programs was offset by anticipated declines from certain longstanding programs," said Craig Gates, President and Chief Executive Officer. "At the same time, we continued to see our recent acquisition of Ayrshire contribute significantly to our capabilities, revenue and robust pipeline of potential new business. During the third quarter, we won two new programs involving consumer products."
"Moving into the fourth quarter, we expect to see a significant moderation in the decline of certain longstanding programs that had impacted us in recent periods, while many new programs continue to ramp up. As a result, we expect overall sequential revenue growth, as well as increased operating efficiencies and profitability."
For the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2015, the Company expects to report revenue in the range of $115 million to $125 million, and earnings in the range of $0.17 to $0.23 per diluted share. These expected results assume an effective tax rate of 35%.
