Jeffrey T. Schlarbaum, President and CEO of IEC Electronics commented, “Our fourth fiscal quarter showed continued solid performance, closing out a strong year for IEC. At the start of fiscal 2020, we established three primary goals for our Company: to drive double-digit organic growth for the fiscal year, continue to achieve industry-leading margins and to generate operating cash flow and we delivered on all three. Our ability to reach these goals is a credit to our employees, who continued to execute our strategy despite adverse circumstances, and a testament to our growing reputation as a premier partner for the manufacture of life-saving and mission critical products.

“Our robust year-end backlog of $194.5 million is derived from a diverse range of customers. Notably, $180.2 million of the backlog is expected to ship within the next twelve months, which represents a year-over-year increase of 19.1% when compared to $151.3 million at the end of fiscal 2019. We are focused on continuing to enhance our offerings to build upon our leadership position as a 100% U.S.-based integrated manufacturing partner. We are pleased with the operational and financial success that we achieved in fiscal 2020, despite the challenges presented by the global pandemic, and we are energized by the opportunities ahead in fiscal 2021 to drive continued growth and profitability.”
