SigmaTron International, Inc. Reports Year End Financial Results for Fiscal Year 2016

ELK GROVE VILLAGE, Ill., July 29, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SigmaTron International, Inc. (NASDAQ:SGMA), an electronic manufacturing services company, today reported revenues and earnings for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2016. Revenues increased to $253.9 million in fiscal year 2016 from $230.2 million in the prior fiscal year. Net income increased to $2,082,659 in fiscal year 2016 compared to $903,412 in fiscal year 2015. Basic and diluted earnings per share for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2016 were each $0.50 and $0.49, respectively compared to $0.22 each in fiscal year 2015.

For the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016, revenues increased to $60.8 million compared to $60.1 million for the same quarter in the prior fiscal year. Basic and diluted earnings per share for the fiscal year 2016 fourth quarter were each $0.01 compared to basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.04 each for the same period of fiscal year 2015.

Commenting on SigmaTron’s results, Gary R. Fairhead, President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board, said, “I’m pleased to report that SigmaTron was profitable during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 as well as for the entire fiscal year. Our fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 was essentially a repeat of the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, in that it was profitable but disappointing. In fact, we have seen revenue decrease the second half of fiscal 2016, and revenue in the third quarter and the fourth quarter were essentially the same. This reflects the continuing stagnant global economy that has been experienced in recent months.

“On a positive note, the results for fiscal 2016 were much better than fiscal 2015, with our net income more than doubling from the prior year. This was led by a strong first half of fiscal 2016 but clearly the economy slowed for the second half of our fiscal year.

“Going forward, we remain optimistic about continued growth in fiscal 2017. We continue to grow our business with existing customers and adding new customers. We believe growth with existing customers reflects their satisfaction with our performance and we continue to add new customers that are attracted to our global footprint and service capabilities. We fully expect to continue to grow revenues in spite of the stagnate economy. As you have heard many times, margin pressures continue from both vendors and customers. We continue to find ways to offset those to remain profitable even with these pressures.

“As always, I want to take this opportunity to thank our customers, supply chain, our bank, Wells Fargo Bank N.A., our Board of Directors and our greatest asset, our employees, that made fiscal 2016 a profitable and more successful year than the prior fiscal year.”
