Cemtrex Q2 FY2017 Revenue Up 61% YoY


Reading time ( words)

Cemtrex Inc. has reported its financial results for the three-month and six-month periods ended March 31, 2017.

“We reported a 61% increase in total revenue to $30.5 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2017. This growth was driven organically and through the acquisitions we completed within the last year. There are significant opportunities for us to continue to grow in fiscal 2017 and beyond as we make additional strategic investments in our existing businesses and look to complete synergistic acquisitions,” stated Saagar Govil, Chairman and CEO of Cemtrex. “Looking ahead, customers’ programs are steadily filling our industrial and electronics manufacturing pipelines for the remainder of the year, putting us on track to maintain planned growth for the balance of fiscal year 2017.

“As Cemtrex continues to grow, we are positioned to build shareholder value even further. We do not believe the valuation of the company’s stock fully represents the progress we have made over the past year. As a result, the Board of Directors utilized different financial tools, including a stock buyback program and paying dividends to common and preferred shareholders. We believe these actions benefit our existing shareholders, while also attracting a broader shareholder base.”
