Key Tronic Corporation (Nasdaq:KTCC), a provider of electronic manufacturing services (EMS), today announced its results for the three and six months ended December 29, 2012.
For the second quarter of fiscal year 2013, Key Tronic reported total revenue of $94.6 million, up 12% from $84.5 million in the same period of fiscal year 2012. For the first six months of fiscal 2013, total revenue was $192.1 million, up 25% from $154.2 million in the same period of fiscal 2012.
Net income for the second quarter of fiscal year 2013 was $3.6 million or $0.33 per diluted share, up 13% from $3.2 million or $0.30 per diluted share for the same period of fiscal year 2012. For the first six months of fiscal 2013, net income was $7.3 million or $0.67 per diluted share, up 66% from $4.4 million or $0.42 per diluted share for the same period of fiscal 2012.
For the second quarter of fiscal year 2013, gross margin was 10% and operating margin was 6%, compared to 8% and 3%, respectively, in the same period of fiscal year 2012.
“We're pleased with our strong year-over-year growth in revenue and earnings for the second quarter and first half of fiscal 2013,” said Craig Gates, President and Chief Executive Officer. “While we maintained strong operating efficiencies and further strengthened our balance sheet during the second quarter of fiscal 2013, our sequential quarterly revenue was impacted by a significant slowdown in demand from one customer, as well as by the decisions of two other customers to change the mix of in-house versus outsourced production for portions of certain programs. At the same time, our many new customer programs continued to ramp up and we continued to diversify our future revenue base by winning new customer programs involving RFID, exercise, and security equipment. At the end of the second quarter of fiscal 2013, we were generating revenue from 169 separate programs and had 52 distinct customers, up from 149 programs and 40 customers a year ago.
“Moving into the third quarter, our revenue is being reduced by the continued slowdown in demand from the same customer that began to reduce its production levels in the second quarter. In coming periods, however, we expect to see the continued ramp up of our new programs to more than offset this customer's decrease in demand. We also have a very robust pipeline of potential new business, including programs with larger revenue potential than most of our current customer programs. We believe this trend towards larger quote opportunities reflects increased recognition of the competitive advantages of North American based manufacturing for products sold in the Americas. Over the long term, we believe our unique combination of global logistics with world-class engineering and production capabilities in North America and China will continue to fuel our growth.”
For the third quarter of fiscal year 2013, the Company expects to report revenue in the range of $83 million to $90 million, and earnings in the range of $0.24 to $0.30 per diluted share. The expected earnings range assumes an effective tax rate of 25%, reflecting the US government's recent renewal of research and development tax credits.

Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
