Key Tronic Corporation Announces Preliminary Results for the Fourth Quarter of
Fiscal Year 2014

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash., July 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Key Tronic
Corporation (Nasdaq:KTCC), a provider of electronic manufacturing services
(EMS), today announced its preliminary results for the three months ended June
28, 2014.

The Company currently expects to report revenue of approximately $72 million
for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. The lower than anticipated revenue
primarily reflects a temporary reduction in production levels for a
longstanding customer, which are expected to return to prior levels in the
first quarter of fiscal 2015.In addition, there was a delay in the
commencement of production for a significant new program due to the timing of
certain agency approvals.Revenue from this new program is expected to start
being recognized in the first quarter of fiscal 2015. As a result, earnings
for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 are expected to be in the range of $
$0.10 to $0.12 per share. 

"While the unanticipated revenue shortfall in the fourth quarter was
disappointing, we expect to see a return to sequential growth in the first
quarter of fiscal 2015 as our new programs continue to ramp up," said Craig
Gates, President and Chief Executive Officer. "As we also announced today,
the planned acquisition of CDR Manufacturing during the first quarter of
fiscal 2015, if consummated, will represent a major step forward for Key
Tronic, significantly expanding our printed circuit board assembly
capabilities and extending our customer base with new multi-national

The Company plans to announce its complete fourth quarter and year end results
for fiscal 2014, and more specific guidance for the first quarter of fiscal
2015, on August 19, 2014.
