Plexus Provides Financial Update Due to COVID-19 Restrictions in Malaysia

Reading time ( words)

Plexus announced that the Malaysian government mandated a two-week workforce curtailment for all manufacturers in the region. The actions instituted by the Malaysian government as it combats a continued rise in COVID-19 infections will impact the Company’s operations in the region. The Company is still determining the potential financial impact of this fluid situation and the effects on Plexus as well as potential impacts on Plexus’ customers, suppliers and other partners.  However, the Company currently anticipates that it will be unable to meet its fiscal third quarter revenue guidance of $875 to $915 million and GAAP diluted EPS guidance of $1.23 to $1.38 issued on April 21, 2021. The Company expects to provide additional updates during a live webcast as part of a fireside chat on Tuesday, June 8, 2021 at Stifel’s 2021 Virtual Cross Sector Insight Conference. 

Todd Kelsey, President and CEO, commented, “Our focus remains on ensuring our locations are the safest place for our team members outside of their homes.  Although the workforce curtailments in Malaysia will negatively affect our fiscal third quarter results, we anticipate the demand will push into future quarters.  In addition, we remain optimistic regarding our fiscal 2022 outlook and our ability to achieve 9-12% annual revenue growth over the long term while continuing to deliver industry leading operating performance.  As the overall demand environment continues to strengthen, we are also benefiting from our support of secular growth markets including robotic assisted surgery, industrial and warehouse automation and commercial space as well as robust new program win activity.”

Companies have been collecting data in large volumes. Highly varied data from manufacturing operations comes in quickly that needs to be validated, and its value prioritized so that it can be turned into something useful—transformed from big data to smart data. The amount of data available has grown exponentially into big data. Twenty years ago, a PCB work order resulted in 100 data records, megabytes of data; today, it is 10 billion records, terabytes of data. The investment in collecting this data and storing it is high. However, without a way to analyze the data, without analytics, it will not result in ROI.

Whenever we discuss data, keep in mind that people have been collecting data, verifying it, and translating it into reports for a long time. And if data is collected and processes are changed automatically, people still will be interpreting and verifying the accuracy of the data, creating reports, making recommendations, solving problems, tweaking, improving, and innovating. Whatever data collection system is used, any effort to digitalize needs to engage and empower the production team at the factory. Their role is to attend to the manufacturing process but also to act as the front line of communications and control.
