Key Tronic GAAP EPS of $0.09, revenue of $126.2M

Key Tronic press release (NASDAQ:KTCC): FQ4 GAAP EPS of $0.09. Revenue of $126.2M (-4.8% Y/Y). CEO comment: “Moving into fiscal 2023, the global supply chain and COVID-19 crises continue to present uncertainty and multiple business challenges. At the same time, global logistics problems and heightened assurance of supply concerns continue to drive the favorable trend of contract manufacturing returning to North America. In fiscal 2023, we expect to ramp a number of new programs, including the previously announced program with a leading power equipment company in our Mexico facility during the second quarter. We believe we are well positioned to benefit from the growing demand for North American onshoring and see the potential for significant growth in fiscal 2023 and beyond.” For 1Q23, the company expects to report revenue in the range of $125M to $135M and earnings in the range of $0.05 to $0.10 per diluted share. Effective tax rate of 25% in the coming quarter.

Forecasted Tech industry annual growth in earnings

In this section we usually present revenue and earnings growth projections based on the consensus estimates of professional analysts to help investors understand the company’s ability to generate profit. But as Key Tronic has not provided enough past data and has no analyst forecast, its future earnings cannot be reliably calculated by extrapolating past data or using analyst predictions.

This is quite a rare situation as 97% of companies covered by SimplyWall St do have past financial data.
