Reading time ( words)

IEC Electronics Corp. has posted net sales of $32.9 million for the fiscal first quarter ended January 1, 2016, an increase of 14.2% compared to net sales of $28.8 million during the first quarter of the last fiscal year.

Gross profit margin for the first quarter grew to 17.7% compared to 12% in the same quarter last year. The improved gross profit was related to higher production volume, changes in customer mix and improved labor efficiencies. Selling and administrative expenses, excluding restatement and related expenses, increased to $4 million or 12.3% of sales as compared to $3.2 million or 11.3% of sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2015.

Net income for the quarter was $1.5 million, or $0.15 per share, compared to a net loss of $0.8 million, or a loss of $0.08 per share, in the same prior year period.

Jeffrey T. Schlarbaum, president and CEO of IEC Electronics commented, "We're very pleased to have built on the momentum we've developed over the past few quarters, to deliver a strong start to fiscal 2016. Just over a year ago, our new management team established a focused strategy to turnaround our Company and since then we have steadily and consistently driven improved performance. During the first quarter, which represents our third full quarter under new leadership, IEC demonstrated solid revenue growth, enhanced profitability and our third consecutive quarter of gross margin improvement. 

"As a provider of mission critical and life-saving products, we see great opportunity for growth as we work with our customers for the successful execution of ongoing projects and as we introduce our capabilities to new audiences. We believe IEC's ability to provide comprehensive, specialized solutions to highly regulated end markets will enable us to realize continued revenue growth with sustained margin performance and profitability," Schlarbaum concluded.

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.
