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.

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...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
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 ...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...
