Commenting on SigmaTron's third quarter and nine month results, Gary R. Fairhead, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "I am pleased to report a solid profit for our third quarter of fiscal 2010, which is one year after we saw our revenue drop precipitously in response to the global economic downturn. Our quarterly results were negatively impacted by expenses related to our changing banks during the quarter but otherwise operationally consistent with our second quarter results. Just like the second quarter, each month during the third quarter was profitable. Historically, our second and third quarters have been nominally stronger than our first and fourth quarters.
"Heading into our fourth quarter, we see many customers adjusting inventory levels short term. My current expectation is that revenue during the fourth quarter will be lower than that of the third quarter. However, I also believe that the second half of calendar 2010 will be stronger than the same period of 2009.
"The basis for my optimism for later this calendar year is that several new programs from both existing and new customers are scheduled to launch mid-year. Barring a short term economic downturn, I have every reason to believe most of these programs will go to market.
"As previously announced in our press release on January 11, 2010, we successfully changed our bank to Wells Fargo / HSBC Trade Bank during the quarter. We believe our new banking arrangement will provide greater financial support and flexibility as the economy recovers. Clearly this transition was an important milestone for SigmaTron, and we look forward to a long term relationship with our new bank.
"While all of this news is positive, uncertainty and volatility in the global economy clearly remains. Our cost reductions remain in place and we continue to monitor both our cost structure as well as our revenue levels. There is reason to be optimistic compared to twelve months ago, but we will remain cautious."
