13% Year-to-Date Revenue Growth and New Program Wins; Expecting Continued Growth in the Third QuarterSPOKANE VALLEY, Wash., Jan. 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Key Tronic Corporation (Nasdaq: KTCC), a provider of electronic manufacturing services (EMS), today announced its results for the quarter ended December 26, 2020. For the second quarter of fiscal year 2021, Key Tronic reported total revenue of $128.3 million, up 10% from $116.7 million in the same period of fiscal year 2020. For the first six months of fiscal year 2021, total revenue was $251.5 million, up 13% from $222.0 million in the same period of fiscal year 2020. The revenue increase during the second quarter of fiscal year 2021 was due to the successful ramp of new customer programs and increased demand from existing customers. At the same time, the Company’s revenue continued to be constrained by government imposed shutdowns and labor shortages at its facilities in Juarez due to the COVID-19 pandemic and associated public health measures. For the second quarter of fiscal year 2021, net income was $1.6 million or $0.14 per share, up from $0.8 million or $0.08 per share for the same period of fiscal year 2020. For the first six months of fiscal year 2021, net income was $3.3 million or $0.30 per share, up from $2.4 million or $0.22 per share for the same period of fiscal year 2020. During the second quarter of fiscal year 2021, the Company incurred additional costs caused by the COVID-19 crisis totaling approximately $1.8 million or $0.13 per share. Despite the pandemic’s adverse impact on revenue and expenses, the Company’s margins improved in the second quarter of fiscal year 2021 due to increased revenue. Gross margin was 8.3% and operating margin was 2.1%, up from a gross margin of 7.0% and an operating margin of 1.3%, in the same period of fiscal year 2020. “We’re pleased with the successful ramp of new programs and our strong revenue growth in the second quarter of fiscal 2021, despite the continued headwinds from COVID-19,” said Craig Gates, President and Chief Executive Officer. “During the second quarter of fiscal 2021, we continued to see the favorable trend of contract manufacturing returning to North America and won new programs involving security and home automation and industrial products.” “Moving into the third quarter of fiscal 2021, we expect continued revenue and earnings growth. Nevertheless, the COVID-19 crisis continues to present macroeconomic uncertainty and multiple business challenges, including industry-wide electronic component shortages, workforce disruptions and higher labor costs. As we endeavor to mitigate these issues and continue to invest in new capacity to prepare for long-term growth, we remain committed to protecting the health of all of our employees.” The financial data presented for the second quarter of fiscal year 2021 should be considered preliminary and could be subject to change, as the Company’s independent auditor has not completed their review. Business Outlook For the third quarter of fiscal year 2021, Key Tronic expects to report revenue of approximately $130 million to $140 million, and earnings of approximately $0.20 to $0.25 per diluted share. These expected results assume an effective tax rate of 25% in the coming quarter. Key Tronic is working closely with its customers, key suppliers and employees to minimize the impact of the continued global pandemic. While the Company’s facilities in the US, Mexico, China and Vietnam are currently operating and rigorously following current health guidelines, uncertainty as to the possibility of future temporary closures, customer demand and costs, and future supply chain disruptions during the rapidly changing COVID-19 environment could significantly impact operations in coming periods. Due to the heightened risks associated with the above, we may issue updated guidance during the upcoming quarter. Conference Call Key Tronic will host a conference call to discuss its financial results at 2:00 PM Pacific (5:00 PM Eastern) today. A broadcast of the conference call will be available at www.keytronic.com under “Investor Relations” or by calling 800-437-2398 or +1-323-289-6576 (Access Code: 2393766).

SAN ANTONIO, Jan. 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The United States portable air treatment systems (air purifier) market was valued at over $1.0 billion dollars in the U.S. in 2020. The market witnessed a growth rate of 57.0 percent in 2020 and is expected to witness a double-digit growth rate over the next two years, according to a new report by Verify Markets. The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a surge in demand for air treatment systems. Companies have faced difficulties in coping with the sudden increase in demand. “At the height of the pandemic, several companies were out of stock within weeks and were unable to replenish their stock in time to keep up with the surge in purchases,” notes Shilpa Tiku, Chief Research Officer at Verify Markets. The key drivers in the market include the COVID-19 pandemic, cross-state pollution, natural disasters, and consumer education programs. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact everyday life in the U.S. and around the world, several recommendations have been instituted by various government agencies to help cope with the situation. Some of these include ensuring proper ventilation as well using air cleaners. The key challenges in the market include lack of product awareness among consumers, increasing competition, and misleading claims. Despite some companies educating consumers about the importance of air quality and helping them pick the right air treatment system for their home, there is a continuing lack of knowledge in differentiation among the various products available in the market. Several companies have included product filters and comparison tools on their websites to help customers select the air treatment system that matches their requirements. Another challenge is the low barrier to entry in this market. There are several new companies entering the market, as well as large established companies with strong brand recognition and large marketing budgets. Additionally, there are international companies, mostly from Asia, that offer low-cost products. Increasing competition is affecting the ability of small and medium companies to differentiate their products. Products priced under $150.00 were extremely popular in 2020. Retail sales was the most popular channel, however, e-commerce sales gained significant traction in 2020. Products that covered 301-400 square feet made up the majority of the sales by revenue in 2020. The report provides an in-depth analysis of the overall air treatment systems market in the United States. The report also captures market information on market dynamics like growth drivers, restraints, market revenues and forecasts, technology trends, pricing trends, distribution trends, market share by coverage area, sales by application, and the competitive landscape. The base year for the study is 2020 and the forecasts are until 2027. Some of the key companies in this market include Helen of Troy Limited, Newell Brands Inc., Guardian Technologies, LLC, Plaston Holding AG Widnau, Dyson Ltd, Blueair AB, Sharp Corporation, LG Corporation, IQAir North America, Inc., Alen Corporation, Molekule, Inc., and others.
