Commenting on SigmaTron's third quarter fiscal 2014 results, Gary R. Fairhead,
President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board, said, "While
SigmaTron posted a positive diluted earnings per share for the third fiscal
quarter, we were disappointed with our overall results. The positive earnings
were entirely attributable to changes in deferred tax items as a result of new
legislation enacted in Mexico. My disappointment is reflected in the fact that
we posted a pre-tax loss of $130,182 for the third quarter.

"Our revenue for the third quarter was slightly less, 4.2% less, than the
prior quarter. The decline appears to be primarily attributable to an
adjustment by our customers of their production schedules related to year-end
inventory levels and, in some cases, softer sales, and secondarily
attributable to customary year-end calendar holidays and the Lunar New Year
holiday in Asia. The lower revenue resulted in a pre-tax operating loss for
the quarter.

"On a positive note, we continue to build our partnerships with our current
customers and have added several new customers that we believe will positively
impact fiscal 2015. Our modest expansion plans continue on-track and we
continue to build infrastructure to support future growth. Our Elk Grove
Village, Illinois plant achieved medical ISO 13485 certification during the
third quarter, which we believe will open up new opportunities and markets for

"The pricing pressures tied to the nature of the economy continue. On a macro
level, Gross Domestic Product for the fourth quarter for the United States was
once again revised downward and numerous reports indicate the Chinese economy
is slowing. All signs are that the economy will continue to be volatile and
choppy for the short-term. However we believe we remain well positioned to
leverage our strengths as we pursue new opportunities and grow the Company. We
will also continue to manage the Company consistent with the economy we find
ourselves competing in."
