Benchmark Electronics Reports Revenue of $602 Million in 2Q19


Reading time ( words)

Benchmark Electronics, Inc. has announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019.

Jeff Benck, Benchmark's president and CEO stated, "We delivered solid results in the quarter reflecting both year-over-year and sequential non-GAAP operating margin growth. More importantly, non-GAAP gross margins were over 10% excluding our legacy computing contract revenue, which reflects the potential leverage in our model with an improving portfolio. We also refined our strategic priorities for the coming year and we made progress on these initiatives in the quarter."

Benck continued, "I am excited about the recent executive leadership additions of our Chief Revenue Officer, Rob Crawford and Chief Human Resources Officer, Rhonda Turner. Their broad experience and previous accomplishments position them both to meaningfully contribute to the next phase of growth for Benchmark. After visiting most of our sites, and engagement with many of our large customers since I joined in March, I am even more energized about our future opportunities and the incremental value we can bring to our customers as an innovation conduit and strategic partner."

Overall, higher-value markets were down 5% year-over-year from softer demand in Semi-Cap, despite year-over-year growth in Medical and A&D. Traditional market revenues were down 15% year-over-year primarily from legacy Computing revenues. 

Second Quarter 2019 Bookings Update

  • New program bookings of approximately $130 million of projected annualized revenue
  • 25 engineering awards supporting early engagement opportunities
  • 28 manufacturing wins across all market sectors 

Third Quarter 2019 Outlook

  • Revenue between $525 - $555 million
  • Diluted GAAP earnings per share between $0.21 - $0.24
  • Diluted non-GAAP earnings per share between $0.33 - $0.39 (excluding restructuring charges and other costs and amortization of intangibles)

Third quarter guidance reflects the substantial completion of a long standing legacy computing contract in the second quarter and continued muted recovery in the semi-cap sector. Additionally, we have elected to close manufacturing operations at our San Jose, California and Guaymas, Mexico sites with customer transitions expected into other locations in the Benchmark network by mid 2020. Restructuring charges associated with these consolidations are expected to range between $1 million to $2 million in the third quarter.

IPC Standards Development: Business Challenges and an Inside View

10/28/2020 | Graham Naisbitt, Gen3 Systems
With increasing frequency, standardising the standards, such as ISO 9201, imposes certain rules that must be met to ensure “fair play” amongst the supply chain. There will be those familiar with hearing about “false positives/negatives” and “never trust the salesman,” so mitigating these is no easy task. However, there is the chance for each 5-30 Task Group to review industry requirements and set out the work program for the ensuing period. With that in mind, much of what follows is based on comments we learn about from our industry around the world, many of whom are not yet IPC members. Yes, this is a membership recruitment drive, unashamedly, as well as a search for volunteers willing to help create the standards of tomorrow.
