International, Inc. (Nasdaq:SGMA), an electronic manufacturing services

For the nine months ended January 31, 2013, revenues increased to $147.1
million compared to $116.9 million for the same period ended January 31, 2012.
Net income for the same period in fiscal 2013 was $172,914, compared to
$484,884 for the same period in the prior year. Basic and diluted earnings per
share for the nine months ended January 31, 2013, were both $0.04 compared to
$0.13 for the nine months ended January 31, 2012.

Commenting on SigmaTron's third quarter and nine month results, Gary R.
Fairhead, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "SigmaTron's financial
results for the third quarter are disappointing and a direct reflection of
what we perceive as a slowing economy. Revenue of $46.8 million for the third
quarter of fiscal 2013 is an 11.2% drop from revenue of $52.7 for our second
fiscal quarter ended October 31, 2012. As has been widely reported, the growth
rate of the U.S. economy slowed dramatically during the fourth quarter of
calendar year 2012 and our revenue reflects the slowdown. Customers were
cautious regarding inventory levels for calendar year-end, which coupled with
the slowing economy and fiscal cliff drama, led to the sharply reduced revenue
and resultant loss.

"During the quarter and going forward, we did not lose any customers or
specific programs. Orders were either pushed out or reduced and unfortunately
we anticipate that reduced demand will continue short-term. However, on a
positive note, we have been awarded new programs from current customers that
are finally launching at four of our five offshore locations, and new
customers have been landed at most locations. The new customers are not
anticipated to impact our fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 significantly, but
should help us battle what we anticipate to be a stagnant U.S. economy during
fiscal 2014.

"Overall our market remains difficult, with margin pressures ever-present and
excess capacity overall. In spite of that, we are excited about the new
opportunities that are launching short-term and believe that our anticipated
increased revenue will improve our position going forward."
