SigmaTron International, Inc. Reports Year End Financial Results for Fiscal
Year 2013

ELK GROVE VILLAGE, Ill., July 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SigmaTron
International, Inc. (Nasdaq:SGMA), an electronic manufacturing services
company, today reported revenues and earnings for the fiscal year ended April
30, 2013. Revenues increased 26.7% to $198.4 million in fiscal year 2013 from
$156.6 million in the prior fiscal year. Net income decreased to $492,961 in
fiscal year 2013 compared to $1,134,324 in fiscal year 2012. Basic and diluted
earnings per share for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2013 were $0.13 and
$0.12, respectively compared to $0.29 in fiscal year 2012.

For the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013, revenues increased to $51.3
million compared to $39.7 million for the same quarter in the prior fiscal
year. Basic and diluted earnings per share for the fiscal year 2013 fourth
quarter were each $0.08 compared to basic and diluted earnings per share of
$0.17 for the same period of fiscal year 2012.

Commenting on SigmaTron's results, Gary R. Fairhead, President & Chief
Executive Officer, said, "SigmaTron's fourth quarter was similar to last
year's fourth quarter in that it was the strongest quarter for pre-tax profits
for the fiscal year. We posted pre-tax profits of $934,747, which on a pre-tax
basis was greater than our pre-tax profits for the entire fiscal year. I am
hopeful that the fourth quarter bodes well for fiscal 2014, but short term we
continue to see volatility and choppiness so the signs remain mixed.

"When comparing fiscal year 2013 to fiscal year 2012, we have another year
where the results are disappointing in comparison to the prior year. However,
there were non-recurring expenses incurred early in fiscal year 2013 related
to the Spitfire Controls acquisition and the relocation of our Tijuana plant
that negatively impacted our overall results. Also negatively impacting our
fiscal year 2013 results was a negative $500,000 swing from fiscal year 2012
related to foreign currency adjustments. The United States had a stated policy
of trying to weaken the U.S. dollar during this period of time and that
success negatively affected our results. With all that said, we still see
continuing margin pressure and a spotty economy that will continue to impact
our performance.

"However, not all is negative and there are reasons to be cautiously
optimistic going forward. We continue to land new customers and new programs
with existing customers. Some are not launching or transitioning as quickly as
initially indicated by our customers but we believe that they will eventually
add to our revenues and bottom line. The integration of Spitfire Controls is
proceeding on plan and we have started to add to our menu of services that we
can offer customers. In May 2013, we acquired a building in Elgin, Illinois
and in June 2013, we relocated the Spitfire operations into the Elgin
building. The new building will reduce our overhead costs and we believe that
having our Spitfire team in one location will be a significant benefit to the
operation. While the engineering experience of Spitfire Controls has
historically focused on appliance controls, it will seek to expand to new
markets. Spitfire Controls also will work synergistically with SigmaTron to
develop new customers and support existing customers.

"Earlier this year the hope was that a sustained recovery of the economy would
be seen the second half of calendar 2013. If that happens, SigmaTron should be
in an excellent position to benefit from that recovery. Until that happens, we
will continue to carefully manage our costs while still investing for the
future growth that we believe will eventually come. In closing, I want to
thank everyone that has continued to support our plans and efforts, which
includes our customers, supply chain, our bank, Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., our
employees and our Board of Directors."
