Sigmatron International, Inc. Reports First Quarter Financial Results for
Fiscal 2014

ELK GROVE VILLAGE, Ill., Sept. 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SigmaTron
International, Inc.(Nasdaq:SGMA), an electronic manufacturing services
company, today reported revenues and earnings for the fiscal quarter ended
July 31, 2013.

Revenues increased to $56.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 from
$47.6 million for the same quarter in the prior year. Net income of $967,464
was recorded for the period ended July 31, 2013 compared to a net loss of
$93,144 for the same period in the prior year. Basic and diluted earnings per
share for the quarter ended July 31, 2013, were each $0.24, compared to basic
and diluted loss per share of $0.02 for the same quarter ended July 31, 2012.

Commenting on SigmaTron's first quarter fiscal 2014 results, Gary R. Fairhead,
President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board, said, "The first
quarter of fiscal 2014 was an excellent quarter for the Company, with fully
diluted earnings per share the strongest since the fourth quarter of fiscal
2010. Comparisons to the first quarter of fiscal 2013 are difficult, as one
third of the way through that quarter we acquired Spitfire Control, Inc. and
had significant one-time expenses during the quarter related to the
acquisition as well as the relocation of our Tijuana facility. A comparison to
the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013, which was our best quarter in that fiscal
year, shows revenue was up sequentially 9.4% and fully diluted earnings per
share up 200%.

"During the quarter we saw increased revenue from existing customers and the
launch of several new programs that had previously been delayed. We saw
improved performance from the two plants we acquired in 2013 and steady
performance from our other operations. All of these factors combined to
produce this strong quarter.

"With that said, it was reported by the U.S. Census Bureau in the last week of
August that manufactured durable goods fell over 7% in July and we have seen
some indication of a slowdown at the beginning of our second
quarter.Accordingly, we continue to anticipate an overall sluggish yet
volatile economy without sustained growth.If the signs change, we will be in
a position to respond quickly.

"Finally, while the economy remains a concern, we continue to work on many new
opportunities for the future, and we are quoting multiple projects that will
allow us to utilize the engineering strength that came with the Spitfire
acquisition.For those reasons we believe the Company will continue to move
forward as we battle the general economy, the increased costs of doing
business and the margin pressures we continue to experience."
