Commenting on SigmaTron's second quarter fiscal 2016 results, Gary R. Fairhead, President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board, said, "I am pleased to report a continuing strong performance for fiscal 2016. As discussed in our first quarter press release dated September 11, 2015, the trend in new programs with new and existing customers continued into our second quarter and our expectations to see sequential growth were met. We saw both revenue and earnings grow in comparison to the second quarter of fiscal 2015 as well as in comparison to the first quarter of 2016. This growth was driven by new programs with existing customers and new customers, both of which resulted from awards in fiscal 2015.

"There is some modest seasonality to our customer base which also helped drive our second quarter results. As we head into the third quarter, we would anticipate lower revenue than the second quarter, primarily driven by the December holiday period, but signs remain encouraging that after the holidays revenue will remain steady. For those customers that are tied to year-end sales, inventory status will have to be sorted out in January. Hopefully, offsetting part of this seasonal adjustment will be several new programs that have been awarded but have yet to gain momentum. We are not certain when or if that will happen but we remain optimistic for those programs going forward.

"Once again, these results have been accomplished during a volatile and sluggish economy. Our objective is to continue to add new customers and new markets while continuing growth with our existing customer base. We will continue to manage the business based on the environment we encounter, but it was a strong quarter and we are pleased both with the result and the trend."
