Revenues increased to $38.1 million for the third quarter fiscal 2012 from $36.9 million for the same quarter in the prior year. Net income decreased to $85,656 in the fiscal 2012 period compared to $254,818 for the same period in the prior year. Basic and diluted earnings per share were $0.02 for the quarter ended January 31, 2012, compared to $0.07 for the same quarter in fiscal 2011.

For the nine months ended January 31, 2012, revenues increased to $116.9 million compared to $113.2 million for the same period ended January 31, 2011. Net income for the same period in fiscal 2012 was $484,884, compared to $1,698,857 for the same period in the prior year. Basic and diluted earnings per share for the nine months ended January 31, 2012, were $0.13 compared to $0.44 for the nine months ended January 31, 2011.

Commenting on SigmaTron's third quarter and nine month results, Gary R. Fairhead, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "I am pleased to report a profit for the third quarter of fiscal 2012, but again our results remain dampened by the current economic environment. Margins pressures have continued, as expected, from both the customer side and the supplier side. Our business levels remain stable, which is good, but we do not see a significant uptick in the future anytime soon. From our perspective, as reported in our second quarter press release, the general economy remains stagnant for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. Also, during our third quarter, we had the calendar year-end holidays in the U.S. and Mexico and Lunar New Year in Asia in January. These periods generally negatively affect the quarter's results.

"On a positive note, we are also working with new opportunities that we are cautiously optimistic we will be able to capture later this calendar year. We have already started several new relationships with first time customers during this quarter and we would hope that by the middle of calendar year 2013 sales to these customers will reach a level that will improve the Company's performance. We have also seen some of our long-term customers start to launch some new products which is an encouraging sign that we haven't seen for some time. As our customers start to invest in new products, it's usually a sign that they are feeling better about the future, which I hope is the case.

"Costs across the board have continued to increase in China, and I believe it is now close to a level playing field in terms of cost structure between Mexico and China. Our footprint continues to provide our customers flexibility in terms of supply chain solutions as the global economy vacillates. Certainly we will continue to see growth in China as we service the domestic market and international customers.

"In summary, my view of the short-term remains the same as it was at the end of the second quarter. Short-term I believe we will see continued margin pressure. We are also well positioned for growth when the general economy picks up. Our hope is that it's later this calendar year."
