Commenting on SigmaTron’s first quarter fiscal 2024 results, Gary R. Fairhead, Chief Executive Officer, and Chairman of the Board, said, “I’m disappointed to report what is essentially a breakeven quarter to begin our fiscal 2024. Our pre-tax profit was $107,964 for the quarter. As mentioned in our fiscal year-end press release, there was a significant amount of uncertainty with the general economy and our customers. It appears that the effort by the Federal Reserve to slow inflation has weakened the economy which has resulted in lower demand from some of our customers. We have certain customers whose demand remains quite strong and others who have experienced short-term softness. I’m expecting this uncertainty to continue through calendar year-end as those customers are indicating to us that they view this softness as a short-term condition and expect their requirements to pick up by year-end.
“While disappointing, we remain enthusiastic about the long-term prospects for our customers. We have several customers that participate in the infrastructure programs coming out of Washington D.C. and we have others in markets where they have a strong position and forecast future upside. Couple this with several new opportunities and we think that we can generate later this fiscal year, the revenue levels we have recently reported in the preceding fiscal year.
“The electronic component marketplace has modestly improved with the slowing of the economy. That’s encouraging from a supply chain perspective and should allow us to continue our focus on reducing inventory. That remains one of our important objectives during fiscal 2024. The geopolitical situation, specifically in Asia remains uncertain and may have an impact of how this fiscal year will proceed. The trade war with China does not seem to have any short-term solution so our focus remains working on Chinese domestic opportunities and other opportunities outside of sales directly to the United States. Regardless we will continue to grow our business while utilizing our experienced employees and our desirable footprint.”

You can have the greatest product in the world, but if you don’t deliver a great customer experience, it won’t matter.
