Commenting on SigmaTron's second quarter fiscal 2014 results, Gary R.
Fairhead, President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board, said,
"I am pleased to report that SigmaTron followed up its excellent first quarter
results with a strong second quarter. Furthermore, the results for the second
quarter include expenses of $300,410 related to the Tender Offer filed with
the SEC on October 1, 2013. The comparison of this second quarter to last
year's second quarter is favorable in terms of revenue and earnings and
halfway through fiscal 2014, we have some nice momentum.

"As mentioned in our first quarter press release, we are continuing to see the
benefits in terms of revenue and scale from several new customers and new
programs that had previously been delayed. We are hopeful that the momentum
will continue and we have several new opportunities that we believe will help
set the stage for fiscal 2015 if our customers' products meet their
expectations. We are looking at modest expansions at several of our offshore
facilities during the second half of this fiscal year, which is also a good

"With that said, the economy remains volatile, the cost of doing business is
increasing, especially in the United States and long term planning remains
difficult.Short term there could be swings in demand as customers try to
manage their inventory for calendar year end. Pricing pressures also continue
from both customers and suppliers and we plan to continue to manage our
expenses conservatively. However, we are continuing to leverage the assets
that came to us with the Spitfire acquisition and we believe we continue to be
well positioned to handle the challenges that we face."
