Commenting on SigmaTron’s third quarter, fiscal 2024 results, Gary R. Fairhead, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board, said “I’m pleased to report pre-tax profits of $676,742 for our third quarter of fiscal 2024. As mentioned in our second quarter press release, as we were heading into the quarter, our short-term backlog was soft and our third quarter historically is our weakest quarter. Accordingly, it was good to be profitable. We did see a modest increase in revenue compared to the third quarter of the prior year, but at lower margins. This is related to both mix and cost structure. As you can see, our year-to-date revenue is still running significantly behind the prior year. We are continuing to see that trend in the short-term. There is a general softness from our customer base overall. I think it reflects the uncertainty of the general economy overall and we will continue to manage expenses and working capital accordingly. The Company has reduced inventory by $30 million during the first nine months of our fiscal year.

“In addition to the modest softness overall, several new projects have not come to market as anticipated. They all remain on track to launch but just further out. This should bode well for fiscal 2025 but short-term, they will not contribute to our performance. However, we remain optimistic about those projects as well as several new ones that are under discussion with our customers.

“The report on the electronic component marketplace remains the same as the second quarter. There are still supply chain issues but there have been some modest improvements. The uncertainty related to the geopolitical situations as well as the upcoming elections have negatively affected the overall economy. We remain positive regarding the future but there will definitely be some short-term volatility for the next quarter or two.”
