Key Tronic Corporation Announces Results for the Second Quarter of Fiscal 2013

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.”

Business Outlook

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.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute.

In this power panel at @...

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data?
