“We are pleased to report another strong quarter with sales growth of 57% over the fourth quarter of last year, reflecting the continued progress we are making in the multi-year transformation of our business. During the fiscal year, we steadily grew our core distribution business, while also completing a successful acquisition that broadened and strengthened our product offering for the telecom, data center, and wireless markets. As we move into fiscal 2020, we continue to put the pieces in place to further build a platform for continued growth, including our recent acquisition of Schroff Technologies International and the addition of talent to our leadership team. Finally, we remain focused on our long-term growth plan of reaching $100 million in sales.”

 

Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2019 Results

 

Net sales in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019 were $15.5 million, consistent with the preceding third quarter, and an increase of 57%, or $5.6 million, compared to $9.9 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018. The year-over-year increase in net sales reflects sales contribution from the Company’s acquisition of C Enterprises, as well as growth in both its traditional run rate business and its project work in the OEM and wireless carrier markets.

 

Gross profit for the fourth quarter was $4.1 million, compared to $4.3 million in the preceding third quarter, and an increase of 40%, or $1.2 million, compared to $3.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018. Gross margins were 27% of net sales, compared to 30% of net sales in the fiscal 2018 fourth quarter primarily due to product mix at the Custom Cabling segment as well as increased wages for the Company’s production team.
