Jul 27th, 2022 12:00 EST

ELK GROVE VILLAGE, Ill., July 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SigmaTron International, Inc. (NASDAQ: SGMA), an electronic manufacturing services company (the “Company”), today reported revenues and earnings for the fiscal quarter and fiscal year ended April 30, 2022.

Revenues increased $101.1 million, or 36 percent, to $378.9 million for fiscal 2022 compared to $277.7 million for fiscal 2021. Net income for fiscal 2022 was $9.9 million, compared to net income of $1.5 million for fiscal 2021. Basic and diluted income per share for fiscal 2022 was $2.04 and $1.92, respectively, compared to $0.36 for both basic and diluted income per share for fiscal 2021.

For the three months ended April 30, 2022, revenues increased $23.2 million, or 31 percent, to $99.2 million compared to $76.0 million for the same period in the prior year. Net income for the three-month period ended April 30, 2022, was $0.6 million compared to $1.6 million for the same period in the prior year. Basic and diluted income per share for the three months ended April 30, 2022, were $0.11 and $0.10, respectively, compared to basic and diluted income per share of $0.37 and $0.36, respectively, for the three months ended April 30, 2021.

Commenting on SigmaTron’s results for both the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended April 30, 2022, Gary R. Fairhead, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board, said, “SigmaTron is pleased to report a solid fourth quarter and an excellent fiscal year for 2022. For the fourth quarter, we posted pre-tax profits of $1.9 million on revenue of $99.2 million. I note that during the fourth quarter we absorbed the operating costs of Wagz for the entire quarter, which as an emerging growth company, was an expected loss.

For the fiscal year, we are reporting revenue of $378.9 million and pre-tax income of $14.2 million. During the year, we had two extraordinary accounting transactions that essentially negated each other. One was the forgiveness of the PPP loan and the other was the accounting impairment of the Wagz investment and notes on the closing of the Wagz transaction. Thus, the results for the year are not affected by any specific one-time event and reflect one of the strongest, if not the strongest, fiscal years in SigmaTron’s history. In addition, the fiscal year results include four months of Wagz operations, a continuing volatile electronic component marketplace which led to operational inefficiencies by default and a continuing disruption of operations related to COVID-19 and the various restrictions put in place in different jurisdictions. We are proud of our results for the year given those factors and excited about the opportunities that lay ahead.

“As mentioned, during fiscal 2022, we closed on the acquisition of Wagz. Wagz recently launched their Freedom® 1.2 Collar and the initial feedback is positive. We are most excited about the product roadmap we have laid out for the next 12-18 months and we think the opportunity for Wagz continues to grow every day. We believe we have the technology and the team to make our products best in class and Wagz the preeminent Pet Tech company in the industry.

“As mentioned above, the unprecedented marketplace for electronic components continues with no end in sight. Demand continues to exceed supply, which results in price increases and missed deliveries from the supply chain. I am not aware of any predictions of this ending in calendar 2022 and most of the experts have it extending until late calendar 2023 at a minimum. This continues to increase revenues through increased raw material cost, causes inventories to grow and puts pressure on working capital. In order to help address those issues, I’m pleased to announce that SigmaTron has closed an agreement with the Private Credit Group of TCW Asset Management Company (“TCW”). Our agreement with them will provide split lien subordinated debt in the amount of $40 million. We closed the transaction on July 18, 2022. In conjunction with the transaction with TCW, our primary lender, JP Morgan Chase, has extended our credit agreement to July 18, 2027 and increased our line of credit from $60 million to $70 million. This additional working capital will allow us to support the inventory growth under the current market conditions, the new opportunities that are starting and Wagz as they go through the customary launch of products to the Pet Tech market. We appreciate the support provided by JP Morgan Chase and look forward to working with TCW as the Company grows.

“Going forward, we have a record backlog and new opportunities that are expected to launch during fiscal 2023. Our end markets have continued to diversify with new customers and we are seeing new programs with our existing customers. The challenge of the supply chain remains difficult at best, but, all of our operational teams have done an incredible job of meeting those challenges head on and working closely with our customers to get products out as best we can. We have only seen a few customers start to push out orders and the balance are continuing to take whatever we can build to meet their requirements. This leads us to believe that we are headed into another strong fiscal year. The overall economy remains a concern, but at this time, we have not seen any significant weakness in the short term.

“As this is year end, I want to thank our customers, supply chain, our bank, JP Morgan Chase, our board of directors and our talented team of dedicated employees who have driven these excellent financial results. They did this in spite of continuing pandemic issues and a volatile and chaotic supply chain marketplace. Congratulations and well done to the team. We look forward to continuing to grow the Company and to take advantage of the opportunities that we see in both electronic manufacturing services and pet technology.”
