SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash., April 09, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Key Tronic Corporation (Nasdaq: KTCC), a provider of electronic manufacturing services (EMS), today announced its preliminary results for the three months ended March 28, 2020.
For the third quarter of fiscal 2020, Key Tronic expects to report revenue of approximately $111 million and earnings of approximately $0.07 to $0.09 per share.  The lower than anticipated revenue and earnings for the third quarter of fiscal 2020 are primarily a result of disruptions to supply chains in China caused by the COVID-19 crisis, which delayed the arrival of key components.  In addition, earnings in the third quarter of 2020 were impacted by a write down of $0.6 million of receivables from an already struggling customer that was impacted by the pandemic, decreasing our earnings per share by approximately $0.04 per share.Despite the COVID-19 crisis, demand from many customers has remained strong and some customers have significantly increased their demand, including programs for home-consumer products, healthcare and home exercise equipment. In addition, Key Tronic currently has programs producing subassemblies for personal respirators and is in discussions with potential customers for ventilator manufacturing, driven by the growing global need for these critical healthcare products.To protect the health of its employees, the Company has implemented the recommendations of WHO and the CDC, including social distancing, increased disinfecting, wearing of masks, and other precautions. So far, Key Tronic’s facilities in Mexico, the US and Vietnam continue to operate without significant virus caused disruptions, except for delays caused by the shortage of critical components from China. Moving into the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, the Company’s China facilities appear to be returning to full operation and the supply chain disruptions have been abating.For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, Key Tronic expects to report increased revenue to a range of $120 million to $130 million. These estimates assume China continues to recover from the COVID-19 crisis, including production and supply of key components for the Company’s business, and the Company’s production facilities in Mexico, the US, and Vietnam continue to operate without significant disruptions.The Company plans to report its complete results for the third quarter of fiscal 2020 on April 28, 2020.About Key TronicKey Tronic is a leading contract manufacturer offering value-added design and manufacturing services from its facilities in the United States, Mexico, China and Vietnam.
