  • Q3 revenue increased by 32% compared to Q3 2010
  • Q3 operating profit increased 15.7% compared to Q3 2010
  • Continued progress integrating Southern California Braiding

IEC Electronics Corp. (NYSE Amex: IEC) announced its results for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 ended July 1, 2011.

For the quarter ended July 1, 2011 the Company reported revenue of $34,626,000 for the quarter, operating income of $2,623,000 (7.6% of sales) and net income of $1,333,000 or $0.13 per share. This compares to revenue of $26,095,000, operating income of $2,268,000 (8.7% of sales) and net income of $1,238,000 or $0.13 per share for the quarter ended June 25, 2010.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 was $3,483,000 or $0.35 per share, compared to $2,555,000 or $0.27 per share for the same quarter last year.

IEC reported revenue of $98,355,000, operating income of $7,909,000 and net income of $4,129,000 or $0.42 per share for the first nine months of 2011. This compares to revenue of $69,387,000, operating income of $5,565,000 and net income of $3,027,000 or $0.32 per share for the first nine months of fiscal 2010.

EBITDA for the nine month period ended July 1, 2011 totaled $9,925,000 or $1.00 per share, compared to $6,067,000 or $0.63 per share for the same period last year.

"This was a solid quarter for IEC, but not without its challenges. On the positive side our organic growth was 14% as compared to the same period in fiscal 2010, which is in line with our outlook. Our backlog continues to expand in the face of some weakening broad macro-economic news both domestically and from the Far East. Southern California Braiding recently received a $5 million order from one of its military customers, and we continue to work on a number of exciting new programs, all of which will impact fiscal 2012," said W. Barry Gilbert, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

Mr. Gilbert continued, "Nonetheless, the revenue growth and gross margin were somewhat disappointing. Both the growth and the margin were negatively impacted by a delay in $3 million of revenue caused by unplanned downtime in certain equipment, the delay in finalizing the federal military budget, and an unusual number of customer change orders. In addition, we experienced a shift in our product mix. The product mix which was very favorable last quarter was equally unfavorable this quarter and impacted our gross profit.

"The long term view for Southern California Braiding's future is bright. Its current performance, however, has been choppy as we work our way through integration issues such as implementing new systems and expanding communication and business process tools. Nothing we have observed has diminished our enthusiasm about this acquisition, if anything we are more excited. All the programs we were planning have been approved in the defense appropriation budget and we are likely to receive additional awards.

"We strengthened our balance sheet. However, we fell short of our goal of reducing our bank debt. We believe this is a timing issue and remain confident that our bank debt will be reduced on or ahead of our internal schedule.

"We believe that we have met the challenges before us and remain most optimistic about the Company's future prospects. We are continually building a stronger company with immense capability for our customers, our employees and our shareholders."
