PART I

 

Item 1. BUSINESS

Background

Key Tronic Corporation (dba: KeyTronicEMS Co.), was organized in 1969 as a Washington corporation that locally manufactured computer keyboards. The ability to design, build and deliver a quality product led us to become a leading independent manufacturer of keyboards for computers in the United States. Our fully integrated design, tooling, and automated manufacturing capabilities enabled us to rapidly respond to customers’ needs for keyboards in production quantities worldwide. We supported our sales growth through the development and purchase of international manufacturing facilities. As the computer keyboard market matured with increasing competition from other international providers, we determined that our business could no longer solely rely on keyboard sales.

After assessing market conditions and our strengths and capabilities, we shifted focus from keyboard manufacturing to contract manufacturing for a wide range of products. Our unique strategic attributes are based on our core strengths of innovative design and engineering expertise in electronics, mechanical engineering, and precision plastics combined with high-quality, low cost production, and assembly on an international basis while providing exceptional customer service. These strengths have made our company a strong competitor in the electronic manufacturing services (EMS) market.

Our Industry and Strategy

The expansion of the EMS industry has allowed us to continue to expand our customer base and the industries that we serve. The challenging global macroeconomic environment has had a negative impact on previously held customer programs. However, we are successfully confronting the challenging global macroeconomic environment by controlling our costs and winning new customer programs, which allowed us to increase our profitability and maintain a strong balance sheet during the global economic downturn. The increase in new programs represents a growing portion of our revenue and a promising foundation for our future. In keeping with our long-term strategic objectives, we have been successfully building a more diversified customer portfolio, spanning a wider range of industries. We currently offer our customers the following services: integrated electronic and mechanical engineering, precision plastic molding, assembly, component selection, sourcing and procurement, worldwide logistics, and new product testing and production all at competitive pricing due to our global footprint.

We believe that we are well positioned in the EMS industry to continue the expansion of our customer base and achieve long term growth. Our unique blend of multinational facilities, centralized management, and core strengths continue to support our growth and our customers’ needs. We continue to focus on controlling operating expenses and leveraging the synergistic capabilities of our world-class facilities in the United States, Mexico, and China. This international production capability provides our customers with the benefits of improved supply-chain management, reduced inventory, lower labor costs, lower transportation costs, and reduced product fulfillment time. Given our competitive advantages and the growing pressure for new potential customers to move forward with their outsourcing strategies, we are strongly positioned to win new business in coming periods and grow our revenue and profits.

The EMS industry is intensely competitive. Although our customer base is growing we still have less than 1% of the potential global market and our revenue can fluctuate significantly due to reliance on a concentrated base of customers. We are planning for new customer growth in the coming quarters by securing new programs, increasing our worldwide manufacturing capacity, and continuing to improve our manufacturing and procurement processes. Ongoing challenges that we face include the following: Continuing to win programs from new and existing customers, balancing production capacity and key personnel in support of new customer programs, improving operating efficiencies, controlling costs while developing competitive pricing strategies, and successfully transitioning new program wins to full production during a time of macroeconomic uncertainty.

Customers and Marketing

We provide a mix of manufacturing services for outsourced Original Equipment Manufacturing (OEM) products. We provide the following EMS services: Product design, surface mount technologies (SMT) and pin through hole capability for printed circuit board assembly, tool making, precision plastic molding, liquid injection molding, complex assembly, automated tape winding, prototype design and full product assembly.

Sales of the majority of our products have historically not been seasonal in nature, but may be seasonal in the future if there are changes in the types of products manufactured. Sales can, however, fluctuate significantly between quarters from changes in customers and customer demand due to the concentration of sales generated by our largest customers.

For the fiscal years ended June 30, 2012, July 2, 2011, and July 3, 2010, the five largest customers in each year accounted for 73%, 62%, and 57% of combined total net sales, respectively. At the end of fiscal year 2012, we were generating revenue from 165 separate programs and 48 distinct customers as compared to 119 programs and 33 customers at the end of fiscal year 2011. As these new customers’ sales ramp and new programs are won our concentration of revenue should decrease in the future.

The following table represents all customers that represented 10% or more of total net sales during the last three fiscal years:

 

     Percentage of Net Sales
by Fiscal Year
 
     2012     2011     2010  

Customer A

     29 %     15 %     *

Customer B

     17 %     16 %     12

Customer C

     16     16     18   

Customer D

     *        *        10

 

* Amount was less than 10% of total.

Although keyboard manufacturing is still included in our product offerings, we do not expect annual keyboard sales to be a material component of our business. We realized revenues of approximately $2.8 million, $3.9 million, and $4.5 million in fiscal years 2012, 2011, and 2010, respectively, from the sale of keyboards. In order to accommodate the demand for standard keyboard layouts, we maintain a purchase-from-stock program. The more popular standard layouts are built and stocked for immediate availability.

We market our products and services primarily through our direct sales department aided by strategically located field sales people and distributors. Although we maintain relationships with several independent sales organizations to assist in marketing our EMS product lines, commissions earned and paid are not material to the consolidated financial statements.

Manufacturing

We have continually made investments in developing and expanding a capital equipment base to achieve vertical integration and efficiencies in our manufacturing processes. We have invested significant capital into SMT for volume manufacturing of complex printed circuit board assemblies. We also design and develop tooling for injection molding and manufacture the majority of plastic parts used in the products we manufacture. Additionally, we have equipment to maintain a controlled clean environment for manufacturing processes that require a high level of precise control.

We use a variety of manual and automated assembly processes in our facilities, depending upon product complexity and degree of customization. Some examples of automated processes include component insertion, SMT, flexible robotic assembly, automated storage tape winding, computerized vision system quality inspection, automated switch and key top installation, and automated functional testing.

Our engineering expertise and automated manufacturing processes enable us to work closely with our customers during the design and prototype stages of production and to jointly increase productivity and reduce response time to the marketplace. We use computer-aided design techniques and software to assist in preparation of the tool design layout and component placement, to reduce tooling and production costs, improve component and product quality, and enhance turnaround time during product development.

Table of Contents

We purchase materials and components for our products from many different suppliers, including both domestic and international sources. We develop close working relationships with our suppliers, many of whom have been supplying products to us for several years.

Research, Development, and Engineering

As part of our long-term strategy, we are committed to supporting our customers by providing research, development, and engineering services. These services allow us to facilitate in optimizing new product designs, and the production processes of our customers programs.

Research, development, and engineering (RD&E) expenses consist principally of employee related costs, third party development costs, program materials costs, depreciation, and allocated information technology and facilities costs.

Competition

The market for the products and services we provide is highly competitive. There are numerous competitors in the EMS industry, many of which have substantially more resources and are more geographically diverse than we are. Some of our competitors have similar international production capabilities, large financial resources and some have substantially greater manufacturing, research and development, and marketing resources. There is also competition from the manufacturing operations of our current and potential customers, who are continually evaluating the merits of manufacturing their products internally versus the advantages of outsourcing. We believe that we can currently compete favorably in these areas primarily on the basis of our international footprint, responsiveness, creativity, vertical production capability, quality, and cost.

Trademarks and Patents

Our name and logo are federally registered trademarks, and we believe they are valuable assets of our business. During 2001, we began operating under the trade name “KeyTronicEMS” to better identify our primary business concentration. We also own several keyboard patents; however, since our focus is EMS, management believes that these patents will not have a significant impact on future revenues.

Employees

We consider our employees to be our primary strength and we make considerable efforts to maintain a well-qualified workforce. Our employee benefits include bonus programs involving periodic payments to all employees based on meeting quarterly or fiscal year performance targets. We regularly provide transportation, medical services, and meals to all of our employees in foreign locations. We maintain a 401(k) plan for U.S. employees, which provides a discretionary matching company contribution of up to 4% of an employee’s salary. We provide group health, life, and disability insurance plans. We also maintain stock option plans and other long term incentive plans for certain employees and outside directors.

As of June 30, 2012 we had 2,700 employees compared to 1,997 on July 2, 2011, and 2,036 on July 3, 2010. Since we can have significant fluctuations in product demand, we seek to maintain flexibility in our workforce by utilizing skilled temporary and short-term contract labor in our manufacturing facilities in addition to full-time employees.

Backlog

On July 28, 2012 our order backlog was valued at approximately $83.1 million, compared to approximately $54.9 million on July 30, 2011. Even though our order backlog is comprised of firm purchase orders, the amount of backlog is not necessarily indicative of future sales but can be indicative of trends in expected future sales revenue. Due to the relationships with our customers, we will occasionally allow orders to be canceled or rescheduled and as a result it is not a meaningful indicator of future financial results. If there are canceled or rescheduled orders, we will attempt to negotiate fees to cover the costs we have incurred. Order backlog consists of purchase orders received for products expected to be shipped approximately within the next twelve months, although shipment dates are subject to change due to design modifications, customer forecast changes, or other customer requirements.

Item 1A. RISK FACTORS

There are risks and uncertainties that could affect our business. These risks and uncertainties include but are not limited to, the risk factors described below, in Item 7A: “Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk” and elsewhere in this Form 10-K.

RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES THAT COULD AFFECT FUTURE RESULTS

The following risks and uncertainties could affect our actual results and could cause results to differ materially from past results or those contemplated by our forward-looking statements. When used herein, the words “expects”, “believes”, “anticipates” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements.

We may experience fluctuations in quarterly results of operations.

Our quarterly operating results have varied in the past and may vary in the future due to a variety of factors, including adverse changes in the U.S. and global macroeconomic environment, volatility in overall demand for our customers’ products, success of customers’ programs, timing of new programs, new product introductions or technological advances by us, our customers and our competitors, and changes in pricing policies by us, our customers, our suppliers, and our competitors. Our customer base is diverse in the markets they serve, however, decreases in demand, particularly from customers that supply the education, consumer products, and gambling industries, could affect future quarterly results. Additionally, our customers could be impacted by the illiquidity of the credit markets which could directly impact our operating results.

Component procurement, production schedules, personnel and other resource requirements are based on estimates of customer requirements. Occasionally, our customers may request accelerated production that can stress resources and reduce operating margins. In addition, because many of our operating expenses are relatively fixed, a reduction in customer demand can harm our gross profit and operating results. The products which we manufacture for our customers have relatively short product lifecycles. Therefore, our business, operating results and financial condition are dependent in a significant way on our ability to obtain orders from new customers and new product programs from existing customers.

Operating results can also fluctuate if changes are made to significant estimates and assumptions. Significant estimates and assumptions include the allowance for doubtful receivables, provision for obsolete and non-saleable inventory, stock-based compensation, the valuation allowance on deferred tax assets, impairment of long-lived assets, long-term incentive compensation accrual, and the provision for warranty costs.

We are exposed to general economic conditions, which could have a material adverse impact on our business, operating results and financial condition.

Recently there have been adverse conditions and uncertainty in the global economy as the result of unstable global financial and credit markets, inflation, and recession. These unfavorable economic conditions and the weakness of the credit market could affect the demand for our customers’ products. The current global macroeconomic environment may affect some of our customers that could reduce orders and change forecasts which could adversely affect our sales in future periods. Additionally, the financial strength of our customers and suppliers and their ability to obtain and rely on credit financing may affect their ability to fulfill their obligations to us and have an adverse effect on our financial results.

Table of Contents

The Company’s ability to secure and maintain sufficient credit arrangements is key to its continued operations.

There is no assurance that the Company will be able to retain or renew its credit agreements in the future. In the event the business grows rapidly or the uncertain macroeconomic climate continues, additional financing resources could be necessary in the current or future fiscal years. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to obtain equity or debt financing at acceptable terms, or at all in the future. For a summary of the Company’s banking arrangements, see Note 4, Long-Term Debt, of the “Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements” in this Annual Report on Form 10-K.

We depend on a limited number of suppliers for components that are critical to our manufacturing processes. A shortage of these components or an increase in their price could interrupt our operations and result in a significant change in our results of operations.

We are dependent on many suppliers, including sole source suppliers, to provide key components and raw materials used in manufacturing customers’ products. We have seen supply shortages in certain electronic components. This can result in longer lead times and the inability to meet our customers request for flexible production and extended shipment dates. If demand for components outpaces supply, capacity delays could affect future operations. Delays in deliveries from suppliers or the inability to obtain sufficient quantities of components and raw materials could cause delays or reductions in shipment of products to our customers which could adversely affect our operating results and damage customer relationships.

Cash and cash equivalents are exposed to concentrations of credit risk.

We place our cash with high credit quality institutions. At times, such balances may be in excess of the federal depository insurance limit or may be on deposit at institutions which are not covered by insurance. If such institutions were to become insolvent during which time it held our cash and cash equivalents in excess of the insurance limit, it could be necessary to obtain other credit financing to operate our facilities.

We operate in a highly competitive industry; if we are not able to compete effectively in the EMS industry, our business could be adversely affected.

Competitors may offer customers lower prices on certain high volume programs. This could result in price reductions, reduced margins and loss of market share, all of which would materially and adversely affect our business, operating results, and financial condition. If we were unable to provide comparable or better manufacturing services at a lower cost than our competitors, it could cause sales to decline. In addition, competitors can copy our non-proprietary designs and processes after we have invested in development of products for customers, thereby enabling such competitors to offer lower prices on such products due to savings in development costs.

The majority of our sales come from a small number of customers and a decline in sales to any of these customers could adversely affect our business.

At present, our customer base is concentrated and could become more or less concentrated. There can be no assurance that our principal customers will continue to purchase products from us at current levels. Moreover, we typically do not enter into long-term volume purchase contracts with our customers, and our customers have certain rights to extend or delay the shipment of their orders. We, however, require that our customers contractually agree to buy back inventory purchased within specified lead times to build their products if not used.

The loss of one or more of our major customers, or the reduction, delay or cancellation of orders from such customers, due to economic conditions or other forces, could materially and adversely affect our business, operating results and financial condition. Specifically, some of our major customers provide products to the banking and gambling industries which have been adversely affected by the unfavorable economic environment. The contraction in demand from our customers in these industries could continue to impact our customer orders and continue to have a negative impact on our operations over the foreseeable future. Additionally, if one or more of our customers were to become insolvent or otherwise unable to pay for the manufacturing services provided by us, our operating results and financial condition would be adversely affected.

Our international operations may be subject to certain risks.

Most of the products we manufacture are in facilities located in Mexico and China. These international operations may be subject to a number of risks, including:

 

   

difficulties in staffing and managing foreign operations;

 

   

political and economic instability (including acts of terrorism, civil unrest, forms of violence and outbreaks of war), which could impact our ability to ship, manufacture, and/or receive product;

 

   

unexpected changes in regulatory requirements and laws;

 

   

longer customer payment cycles and difficulty collecting accounts receivable;

 

   

export duties, import controls and trade barriers (including quotas);

 

   

governmental restrictions on the transfer of funds;

 

   

burdens of complying with a wide variety of foreign laws and labor practices;

 

   

fluctuations in currency exchange rates, which could affect component costs, local payroll, utility and other expenses;

 

   

inability to utilize net operating losses generated by our foreign operations to reduce our U.S. income taxes; and

 

   

our foreign locations may be impacted by hurricanes, earthquakes, water shortages, tsunamis, floods, typhoons, fires, extreme weather conditions and other natural or manmade disasters.

Our operations in certain foreign locations receive favorable income tax treatment in the form of tax credits or other incentives. In the event that such tax incentives are not extended, are repealed, or we no longer qualify for such programs, our taxes may increase, which would reduce our net income.

A significant portion of our operations are in foreign locations. As a result, transactions occur in currencies other than the U.S. dollar. Exchange rate fluctuations among other currencies used by us could directly or indirectly affect our financial results. Future currency fluctuations are dependent upon a number of factors and cannot be easily predicted. We currently use Mexican peso forward contracts to hedge foreign currency fluctuations for a portion of our Mexican peso denominated expenses. However, unexpected losses could occur from future fluctuations in exchange rates.

Additionally, certain foreign jurisdictions restrict the amount of cash that can be transferred to the U.S or impose taxes and penalties on such transfers of cash. To the extent we have excess cash in foreign locations that could be used in, or is needed by, our operations in the United States, we may incur significant penalties and/or taxes to repatriate these funds.

Our success will continue to depend to a significant extent on our key personnel.

Our future success depends in large part on the continued service of our key technical, marketing and management personnel and on our ability to continue to attract and retain qualified employees. There can be no assurance that we will be successful in attracting and retaining such personnel. The loss of key employees could have a material adverse effect on our business, operating results and financial condition.

If we are unable to maintain our technological and manufacturing process expertise, our business could be adversely affected.

The markets for our customers’ products is characterized by rapidly changing technology, evolving industry standards, frequent new product introductions and short product life cycles. The introduction of products embodying new technologies or the emergence of new industry standards can render existing products obsolete or unmarketable. Our success will depend upon our customers’ ability to enhance existing products and to develop and introduce, on a timely and cost-effective basis, new products that keep pace with technological developments and emerging industry standards and address evolving and increasingly sophisticated customer requirements. Failure of our customers to do so could substantially harm our customers’ competitive positions. There can be no assurance that our customers will be successful in identifying, developing and marketing products that respond to technological change, emerging industry standards or evolving customer requirements.

Start-up costs and inefficiencies related to new or transferred programs can adversely affect our operating results and such costs may not be recoverable if such new programs or transferred programs are cancelled.

Start-up costs, the management of labor and equipment resources in connection with the establishment of new programs and new customer relationships, and the need to obtain required resources in advance can adversely affect our gross margins and operating results. These factors are particularly evident in the ramping stages of new programs. These factors also affect our ability to efficiently use labor and equipment. We are currently managing a number of new programs. Consequently, our exposure to these factors has increased. In addition, if any of these new programs or new customer relationships were terminated, our operating results could be harmed, particularly in the short term. We may not be able to recoup these start-up costs or replace anticipated new program revenues.

An adverse change in the interest rates for our borrowings could adversely affect our financial condition.

We are exposed to interest rate risk under our revolving line of credit with interest rates based on various levels of margin added to published prime rate and LIBOR rates depending on the calculation of a certain financial covenant.

Compliance or the failure to comply with current and future environmental laws or regulations could cause us significant expense.

We are subject to a variety of domestic and foreign environmental regulations relating to the use, storage, and disposal of materials used in our manufacturing processes. If we fail to comply with any present or future regulations, we could be subject to future liabilities or the suspension of current manufacturing operations. In addition, such regulations could restrict our ability to expand our operations or could require us to acquire costly equipment, substitute materials, or incur other significant expenses to comply with government regulations.

Our stock price is volatile.

Holders of the common stock will suffer immediate dilution to the extent outstanding equity awards are exercised to purchase common stock. Our stock price may be subject to wide fluctuations and possible rapid increases or declines over a short time period. These fluctuations may be due to factors specific to us such as variations in quarterly operating results or changes in earnings estimates, or to factors relating to the EMS industry or to the securities markets in general, which, in recent years, have experienced significant price fluctuations. These fluctuations often have been unrelated to the operating performance of the specific companies whose stocks are traded.

Due to inherent limitations, there can be no assurance that our system of disclosure and internal controls and procedures will be successful in preventing all errors, theft and fraud, or in informing management of all material information in a timely manner.

Management does not expect that our disclosure controls and internal controls and procedures will prevent all errors or fraud. A control system is designed to give reasonable, but not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. In addition, any control system reflects resource constraints and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Inherent limitations of a control system may include: judgments in decision making may be faulty, breakdowns can occur simply because of error or mistake and controls can be circumvented by collusion or management override. Due to the inherent limitations in a cost-effective control system, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and may not be detected.

If we do not manage our growth effectively, our profitability could decline.

Our business is experiencing rapid growth which can place considerable additional demands upon our management team and our operational, financial and management information systems. Our ability to manage growth effectively requires us to continue to implement and improve these systems; avoid cost overruns; maintain customer, supplier and other favorable business relationships during possible transition periods; continue to develop the management skills of our managers and supervisors; and continue to train, motivate and manage our employees. Our failure to effectively manage growth could have a material adverse effect on our results of operations.

If our manufacturing processes and services do not comply with applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, or if we manufacture products containing design or manufacturing defects, demand for our services may decline and we may be subject to liability claims.

We manufacture and design products to our customers’ specifications, and, in some cases, our manufacturing processes and facilities may need to comply with applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. For example, medical devices that we manufacture or design, as well as the facilities and manufacturing processes that we use to produce them, are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration and non-U.S. counterparts of this agency. In addition, our customers’ products and the manufacturing processes that we use to produce them often are highly complex. As a result, products that we manufacture may at times contain manufacturing or design defects, and our manufacturing processes may be subject to errors or not be in compliance with applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. Defects in the products we manufacture or design, whether caused by a design, manufacturing or component failure or error, or deficiencies in our manufacturing processes, may result in delayed shipments to customers or reduced or cancelled customer orders. If these defects or deficiencies are significant, our business reputation may also be damaged. The failure of the products that we manufacture or our manufacturing processes and facilities to comply with applicable statutory and regulatory requirements may subject us to legal fines or penalties and, in some cases, require us to shut down or incur considerable expense to correct a manufacturing process or facility. Our customers are required to indemnify us against liability associated with designing products to meet their specifications. However, if our customers are responsible for the defects, they may not, or may not have resources to, assume responsibility for any costs or liabilities arising from these defects, which could expose us to additional liability claims.

Energy price increases may negatively impact our results of operations.

Certain components that we use in our manufacturing process are petroleum-based. In addition, we, along with our suppliers and customers, rely on various energy sources in our transportation activities. While significant uncertainty currently exists about the future levels of energy prices, a significant increase is possible. Increased energy prices could cause an increase to our raw material costs and transportation costs. In addition, increased transportation costs of certain of our suppliers and customers could be passed along to us. We may not be able to increase our product prices enough to offset these increased costs. In addition, any increase in our product prices may reduce our future customer orders and profitability.

Disruptions to our information systems, including security breaches, losses of data or outages, could adversely affect our operations.

We rely on information technology networks and systems to process, transmit and store electronic information. In particular, we depend on our information technology infrastructure for a variety of functions, including worldwide financial reporting, inventory management, procurement, invoicing and email communications. Any of these systems may be susceptible to outages due to fire, floods, power loss, telecommunications failures, terrorist attacks and similar events. Despite the implementation of network security measures, our systems and those of third parties on which we rely may also be vulnerable to computer viruses, break-ins and similar disruptions. If we or our vendors are unable to prevent such outages and breaches, our operations could be disrupted.

We are involved in various legal proceedings.

In the past, we have been notified of claims relating to various matters including contractual matters, intellectual property rights or other issues arising in the ordinary course of business. In the event of such a claim, we may be required to spend a significant amount of money to defend or otherwise address the claim. Any litigation, even where a claim is without merit, could result in substantial costs and diversion of resources. Accordingly, the resolution or adjudication of such disputes, even those encountered in the ordinary course of business, could have a material adverse effect on our business, consolidated financial conditions and results of operations.

Item 7: MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Overview

KeyTronicEMS is a leader in electronic manufacturing services and solutions to original equipment manufacturers of a broad range of products. We provide engineering services, worldwide procurement and distribution, materials management, world-class manufacturing and assembly services, in-house testing, and unparalleled customer service. Our international production capability provides our customers with benefits of improved supply-chain management, reduced inventories, lower transportation costs, and reduced product fulfillment time. We continue to make investments in all of our operating facilities to give us the production capacity and logistical advantages to continue to win new business. The following information should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements included herein and with Item 1A, Risk Factors.

Our mission is to provide our customers with superior manufacturing and engineering services at the lowest total cost for the highest quality products, and create long-term mutually beneficial business relationships by employing our “Trust, Commitment, Results” philosophy.

Executive Summary

During fiscal year 2012 we set a new record for annual revenue of $346.5 million, a 36.5 percent growth as compared to sales of $253.8 million in fiscal year 2011. The increase in net sales was primarily driven by an increase in revenues related to new programs for both new and longstanding customers and a net increase in demand related to current customer programs, partially offset by the negative impact of the uncertain macroeconomic environment. Net sales for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 are expected to be within the range of $94 million to $99 million. Future results will depend on actual levels of customers’ orders, the timing of the start up of production of new product programs and the potential impact of the macroeconomic uncertainty. We believe that we are well positioned in the EMS industry to continue expansion of our customer base and continue long-term growth.

The concentration of our largest customers increased during fiscal year 2012 with the top five customers’ sales increasing to 73 percent of total sales in 2012 from 62 percent in 2011, and 57 percent in 2010. Our current customer relationships involve a variety of products, including consumer electronics, electronic storage devices, plastics, household products, gaming devices, specialty printers, telecommunications, industrial equipment, military supplies, computer accessories, electronic whiteboards, medical, educational, irrigations, automotive, transportation management and robotics. The growth during fiscal year 2012 was powered by an increasingly diverse mix of new customer programs. At the end of fiscal year 2012, we were generating revenue from 165 separate programs and 48 distinct customers as compared to 119 programs and 33 customers at the end of fiscal year 2011. These new customers have programs that represent small annual sales while others have multi-million-dollar potential.

Gross profit as a percent of sales was 8.6 percent in fiscal year 2012 compared to 8.1 percent for the prior fiscal year. This 0.5 percentage point increase in gross profit as a percentage of net sales during fiscal year 2012 as compared to fiscal year 2011 is primarily related to a 2.3 percentage point improvement in leveraging of certain overhead costs, as a percent of sales, partially offset by a 1.8 percentage point increase in material costs, as a percent of sales, resulting from higher material content in certain new customer programs. The level of gross margin is impacted by product mix, timing of the start up of new programs, facility utilization, pricing within the electronics industry and material costs, which can fluctuate significantly from quarter to quarter.

Operating income as a percentage of sales for fiscal year 2012 was 4.1 percent compared to 2.7 percent for fiscal year 2011. The increase in operating income as a percentage of sales was due to an increase in gross margin, leveraging of certain operating expenses and by improving efficiencies during fiscal year 2012.

Net income for fiscal year 2012 was $11.6 million or $1.10 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $5.7 million or $0.55 per diluted share for fiscal year 2011. The increase in net income for fiscal year 2012 as compared to fiscal year 2011 was primarily due to the increase in net sales coupled with an improvement in our gross margin and operating income partially offset by an increase in income tax expense.

We maintain a strong balance sheet with a current ratio of 2.4 and a long-term debt to equity ratio of 0.19. Total cash used in operating activities as defined on our cash flow statement was $5.1 million during fiscal year 2012. However, we maintain sufficient liquidity for our expected future operations and had $15.0 million in outstanding borrowings on our revolving line of credit with Wells Fargo, N.A. and $15.0 million remained available at June 30, 2012. We believe cash flow from operations, our borrowing capacity, and equipment lease financing should provide adequate capital for planned growth over the long term.

Net Sales

Net sales were $346.5 million and $253.8 million in fiscal years 2012 and 2011, respectively.

Net sales increased $92.6 million during fiscal year 2012 as compared with fiscal year 2011. This increase in net sales was primarily driven by an approximate $90.6 million increase in revenues related to new programs for both new and longstanding customers and to a lesser extent a $2.9 million increase related to increased demand from certain current customer programs. These increases were partially offset by $0.9 million related to customer program losses. The negative impact resulting from the uncertain macroeconomic environment is reflected in the analysis of our new and longstanding customers programs as discussed above.

We provide services to customers in a number of industries and produce a variety of products for our customers in each industry. As we continue to diversify our customer base and win new customers we may continue to see a change in the industry concentrations of our revenue.

Sales to foreign locations represented 40.6 percent, and 31.9 percent of our total net sales in fiscal years 2012, and 2011, respectively.

Cost of Sales

Total cost of sales as a percentage of net sales was 91.4 percent, and 91.9 percent in fiscal years 2012, and 2011, respectively.

Total cost of materials as a percentage of net sales was approximately 70.4 percent, and 68.6 percent in fiscal years 2012, and 2011, respectively. The change from year-to-year is primarily the result of higher material content in certain new customer programs and changes in product mix.

Production and support costs as a percentage of net sales were 21.0 percent, and 23.3 percent in fiscal years 2012, and 2011, respectively. The decrease in fiscal year 2012 is primarily related to the leveraging of our fixed costs as a percentage of sales during the fiscal year.

We provide for obsolete and non-saleable inventories based on specific identification of inventory against current demand and recent usage. The amounts charged to expense for these inventories were approximately $0.8 million, and $0.3 million in fiscal years 2012, and 2011, respectively.

We provide warranties on certain products we sell and estimate warranty costs based on historical experience and anticipated product returns. Warranty expense is related to workmanship claims on keyboards and EMS products. The amounts charged to expense are determined based on an estimate of warranty exposure. The net warranty expense was approximately $65,000 and $158,000 in fiscal years 2012, and 2011, respectively.

Gross Profit

Gross profit as a percentage of net sales was 8.6 percent, and 8.1 percent in fiscal years 2012, and 2011, respectively.

The 0.5 percentage point increase in gross profit as a percentage of net sales during fiscal year 2012 as compared to fiscal year 2011 is primarily related to a 2.3 percentage point improvement in leveraging of certain overhead costs, as a percent of sales, partially offset by a 1.8 percentage point increase in material costs, as a percent of sales, resulting from higher material content in certain new customer programs and changes in product mix.

We took early pay discounts to suppliers that totaled approximately $932,000 and $678,000, in fiscal years 2012, and 2011, respectively. Early pay discounts will fluctuate based on our liquidity and changes in the discounts and terms offered by our suppliers.

Table of Contents

Changes in gross profit margins reflect the impact of a number of factors that can vary from period to period, including product mix, start-up costs and efficiencies associated with new programs, product life cycles, sales volumes, capacity utilization of our resources, management of inventories, component pricing and shortages, end market demand for customers’ products, fluctuations in and timing of customer orders, and competition within the EMS industry. These and other factors can cause variations in operating results. There can be no assurance that gross margins will not decrease in future periods.

Research, Development and Engineering

Research, development and engineering expenses (RD&E) consists principally of employee related costs, third party development costs, program materials, depreciation and allocated information technology and facilities costs. Total RD&E expense was $4.4 million and $3.8 million in fiscal years 2012, and 2011, respectively. This $0.6 million increase is primarily the result of increased headcount and to a lesser extent higher incentive compensation.

Total RD&E expenses as a percent of net sales were 1.3 percent and 1.5 percent in fiscal years 2012, and 2011, respectively. This 0.2 percentage point improvement in RD&E is primarily related to our continued success in leveraging operating expenses as a percent of net sales.

Selling, General and Administrative

Selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A) consist principally of salaries and benefits, advertising and marketing programs, sales commissions, travel expenses, provision for doubtful accounts, facilities costs, and professional services. Total SG&A expenses were $11.0 million and $9.9 million in fiscal years 2012, and 2011, respectively. This $1.1 million increase is primarily related to an increase in headcount.

Total SG&A expenses as a percent of net sales were 3.2 percent, and 3.9 percent in fiscal years 2012, and 2011, respectively. This 0.7 percentage point improvement in SG&A is primarily related to our continued success in leveraging operating expenses as a percent of net sales.

Interest Expense

We had net interest expense of $0.5 million, and $0.5 million in fiscal years 2012, and 2011, respectively. Interest expense for fiscal year 2012 remained relatively flat as compared to fiscal year 2011.

Income Tax Provision

We had an income tax expense of $2.2 million during fiscal year 2012 as compared to an income tax expense of $746,000 in fiscal year 2011. The income tax expense recognized during fiscal 2012 was primarily a function of U.S. and foreign taxes recognized at the statutory rates offset by the net benefit associated with federal research and development tax credits and changes in potential foreign tax credits. The income tax expense recognized during fiscal 2011 was primarily a function of U.S. and foreign taxes recognized at the statutory rates offset by the net benefit associated with federal research and development tax credits, the release of the valuation allowance in China, and changes in potential foreign tax credits.

Due to increased profitability, revenue growth, and new customer programs, we utilized all remaining domestic net operating loss carryforwards (NOLs) during fiscal year 2012. Furthermore, all previous NOL carryforwards in China have been fully utilized as well. As a result, there is no remaining deferred tax asset as of June 30, 2012 related to NOLs. In addition, we reviewed our requirements for liquidity domestically to fund our revenue growth and to look for potential future acquisitions. We continue to anticipate repatriating a portion of our unremitted foreign earnings. The associated taxes and potential foreign tax credits were first included in the income tax benefit that was realized during fiscal year 2010 and certain changes in the estimates of foreign earnings and profits and tax pools resulted in the recognition of additional tax benefits during fiscal years 2011 and 2012. For further information on taxes please review footnote 5 of the “Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements”.

Net Sales

Net sales were $253.8 million, and $199.6 million in fiscal years 2011 and 2010, respectively.

Net sales increased $54.2 million during fiscal year 2011 as compared with fiscal year 2010. This increase in net sales was primarily driven by an approximate $77.9 million increase in revenues related to new programs for both new and longstanding customers. This was partially offset by a $18.5 million decline related to decreased demand from certain current customer programs. In addition, during fiscal year 2011 we experienced an approximately $5.2 million decline related to the negative impact of end-of-life customer programs and to a lesser extent customer program losses. The negative impact resulting from industry-wide shortages in the global supply chain that occurred throughout most of the year and the uncertain macroeconomic environment are reflected in the analysis of our new and longstanding customers programs as discussed above.

We provide services to customers in a number of industries and produce a variety of products for our customers in each industry. As we continue to diversify our customer base and win new customers we may continue to see a change in the industry concentrations of our revenue.

Sales to foreign locations represented 31.9 percent, and 17.9 percent of our total net sales in fiscal years 2011, and 2010, respectively.

Cost of Sales

Total cost of sales as a percentage of net sales was 91.9 percent, and 90.4 percent in fiscal years 2011, and 2010, respectively.

Total cost of materials as a percentage of net sales was approximately 68.6 percent, and 62.2 percent in fiscal years 2011, and 2010, respectively. The change from year-to-year is primarily the result of higher material content in certain new customer programs and changes in product mix.

Production and support costs as a percentage of net sales were 23.3 percent, and 28.2 percent in fiscal years 2011, and 2010, respectively. The decrease in fiscal year 2011 is primarily related to the leveraging of our fixed costs as a percentage of sales during the fiscal year.

We provide for obsolete and non-saleable inventories based on specific identification of inventory against current demand and recent usage. The amounts charged to expense for these inventories were approximately $0.3 million, and $2.2 million in fiscal years 2011, and 2010, respectively. The large provision in fiscal year 2010 was primarily due to a discontinuance of manufacturing for certain customers that became no longer viable.

We provide warranties on certain products we sell and estimate warranty costs based on historical experience and anticipated product returns. Warranty expense is related to workmanship claims on keyboards and EMS products. The amounts charged to expense are determined based on an estimate of warranty exposure. The net warranty expense was approximately $158,000 and $45,000 in fiscal years 2011, and 2010, respectively.

Gross Profit

Gross profit as a percentage of net sales was 8.1 percent, and 9.6 percent in fiscal years 2011, and 2010, respectively.

The 1.5 percentage point decrease in gross profit as a percentage of net sales during fiscal year 2011 as compared to fiscal year 2010 is primarily related to a 6.4 percentage point increase in material costs, as a percent of sales, resulting from higher material content in certain new customer programs, partially offset by a 4.9 percentage point improvement in leveraging of certain overhead costs.

 

22


Table of Contents

We took early pay discounts to suppliers that totaled approximately $678,000, and $364,000, in fiscal years 2011, and 2010, respectively. Early pay discounts will fluctuate based on our liquidity and changes in the discounts and terms offered by our suppliers.

Changes in gross profit margins reflect the impact of a number of factors that can vary from period to period, including product mix, start-up costs and efficiencies associated with new programs, product life cycles, sales volumes, capacity utilization of our resources, management of inventories, component pricing and shortages, end market demand for customers’ products, fluctuations in and timing of customer orders, and competition within the EMS industry. These and other factors can cause variations in operating results. There can be no assurance that gross margins will not decrease in future periods.

Research, Development and Engineering

Research, development and engineering expenses (RD&E) consists principally of employee related costs, third party development costs, program materials, depreciation and allocated information technology and facilities costs. Total RD&E was $3.8 million, and $2.8 million in fiscal years 2011, and 2010, respectively. As a percentage of net sales, RD&E was 1.5 percent and 1.4 percent in fiscal years 2011, and 2010, respectively. The increase in RD&E in fiscal year 2011 is primarily the result of increased headcount and to a lesser extent higher incentive compensation.

Selling, General and Administrative

Selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A) consist principally of salaries and benefits, advertising and marketing programs, sales commissions, travel expenses, provision for doubtful accounts, facilities costs, and professional services. Total SG&A expenses were $9.9 million, and $9.1 million in fiscal years 2011, and 2010, respectively. As a percentage of net sales SG&A was 3.9 percent, and 4.5 percent in fiscal years 2011, and 2010, respectively. Approximately half of our SG&A expenses relates to salary costs of our employees.

The $0.8 million increase in SG&A expenses in fiscal year 2011 as compared to fiscal year 2010 is primarily due to a $0.5 million increase in outside services and professional fees, a $0.4 million increase in salary related costs, and a $0.3 million increase related to other overhead costs. This was partially offset by an approximate $0.4 million decrease in incentive compensation expense.

Interest Expense

We had net interest expense of $0.5 million, and $0.1 million in fiscal years 2011, and 2010, respectively. Interest expense increased in fiscal year 2011 when compared to fiscal year 2010 as the average balance of the revolving line of credit was higher in addition to interest expense incurred as a result of our capital lease obligations. We often utilize short-term fixed LIBOR rates on portions of our revolving line of credit to limit the affect of interest rate volatilities.

Income Tax Provision

We had an income tax expense of $746,000 during fiscal year 2011 as compared to an income tax benefit of $1.4 million in fiscal year 2010. The income tax expense recognized during fiscal 2011 was primarily a function of U.S. and foreign taxes recognized at the statutory rates offset by the net benefit associated with federal research and development tax credits, the release of the valuation allowance in China, and changes in potential foreign tax credits. The income tax benefit of fiscal year 2010 is primarily related to the release of the valuation allowance on our deferred tax assets related to domestic NOLs and foreign tax credits, partially offset by the recognition of domestic deferred tax liabilities for an unremitted portion of foreign earnings and the change of applicable tax regimes in Mexico.

Due to increased profitability, revenue growth, and new customer programs, we determined that a valuation allowance against our domestic NOLs is not required. We anticipated that we would fully utilize our domestic NOLs prior to their expiration. In addition, we reviewed our requirements for liquidity domestically to fund our revenue growth and to look for potential future acquisitions. We have changed our previous assessments of being permanently reinvested and now anticipate repatriating a portion of our unremitted foreign earnings. The associated taxes and potential foreign tax credits were first included in the income tax benefit that was realized during fiscal year 2010 and certain changes in the estimates of foreign earnings and profits and tax pools resulted in the recognition of additional tax benefits during fiscal year 2011. For further information on taxes please review footnote 5 of the “Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements”.

International Subsidiaries

Foreign sales (based on shipping instructions) from our worldwide operations, including domestic exports, were $81.1 million, and $35.7 million in fiscal years 2011, and 2010, respectively. Products and manufacturing services provided by our subsidiary operations are primarily sold to customers directly by the parent company. Key Tronic Computer Peripherals (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., our subsidiary in Shanghai, China, had only minimal direct sales to customers in China during the past two fiscal years.

Capital Resources and Liquidity

Operating Cash Flow

Net cash used in operating activities for fiscal years 2012 and 2011 were $5.1 million and $2.6 million compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $3.5 million in fiscal year 2010.

This $2.5 million year-over-year change is primarily due to an increase in trade receivables and inventory, partially offset by an increase in accounts payable. Trade receivables increased by $20.3 million as a result of the increase in sales that occurred during fiscal year 2012. The $17.6 million increase in inventory was attributable to our recent and expected growth in production levels for a number of new programs. The $16.9 million increase in accounts payable was primarily driven by the timing of payments and terms of the supply chain related to new programs.

This $6.1 million year-over-year change from fiscal year 2011 and 2010 was primarily due to an increase in trade receivables and inventory, and a decrease in accounts payable. Trade receivables increased by $5.7 million as a result of the increase in sales that occurred during the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2011. The $2.1 million increase in inventory was attributable to our recent and expected growth in production levels for a number of new programs. The $3.0 million decrease in accounts payable was primarily driven by the timing of payments and terms of the supply chain related to new programs.

We purchase inventory based on customer forecasts, orders and expected lead times. When those forecasts cannot be met or changes are made to lead times, inventory can increase. Accounts payable fluctuates with changes in inventory levels, volume of purchases, and negotiated supplier terms.

Investing Cash Flow

Cash flows used in investing activities were $4.6 million, $3.7 million, and $3.3 million in fiscal years 2012, 2011 and 2010, respectively. Cash used in investing activities is for capital expenditures partially offset by proceeds from the sale of property and equipment. Capital expenditures were $4.7 million, $3.8 million, and $3.4 million in fiscal years 2012, 2011, and 2010, respectively. Our capital expenditures are primarily for purchases of manufacturing assets to support our operations in the United States, Mexico and China. The increase in capital expenditures for fiscal year 2012 as compared to fiscal year 2011 was primarily related to the purchase of a manufacturing facility and to a lesser extent the increased investment in manufacturing equipment to support the requirements of our growing customer programs and sales. The increase in capital expenditures for fiscal year 2011 as compared to fiscal year 2010 is primarily related to the increased investment in manufacturing equipment to support the requirements of our growing customer programs and sales.

Financing Cash Flow

Cash flows provided by financing activities were $9.0 million in fiscal year 2012 as compared to cash flows provided by financing activities of $6.7 million and cash used in financing activities of $0.2 million in fiscal years 2011 and 2010, respectively. Our primary financing activity in fiscal years 2012, 2011, and 2010 was borrowing and repayment under our revolving line of our credit facility. Our credit agreement with Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. provides a revolving line of credit facility of up to $30 million. The agreement specifies that the proceeds of the revolving line of credit be used primarily for working capital and general corporate purposes of the Company and its subsidiaries. The outstanding balance under the credit facility was $15.0 million as of June 30, 2012. We had availability to borrow an additional $15.0 million under the Wells Fargo line of credit and we were in compliance with our loan covenants. During fiscal year 2012, cash provided by financing activities reflected payments of $0.7 million on capital leases.

Table of Contents

Our cash requirements are affected by the level of current operations and new EMS programs. We believe that projected cash from operations, funds available under the revolving credit facility and leasing capabilities will be sufficient to meet our working and fixed capital requirements for the foreseeable future. As of June 30, 2012, we had approximately $0.5 million of cash held by foreign subsidiaries. If cash is to be repatriated in the future from these foreign subsidiaries, the Company could be subject to additional income taxes payable in the U.S. The total amount of additional tax required for the amount of foreign subsidiary cash on hand as of June 30, 2012 would approximate $28,000.

Contractual Obligations and Commitments

In the normal course of business, we enter into contracts which obligate us to make payments in the future. The table below sets forth our significant future obligations by fiscal year:

(1) 

The terms of the Wells Fargo Bank N.A. revolving loan are discussed in the consolidated financial statements at Note 4, “Long-Term Debt”. As of June 30, 2012, we were in compliance with our loan covenants. Breaching these covenants could have resulted in a material impact on our operations or financial condition.

(2) 

We maintain vertically integrated manufacturing operations in Mexico and China. Such operations are heavily dependent upon technically superior manufacturing equipment including molding machines in various tonnages, Surface Mount Technology (SMT) lines, clean rooms, and automated insertion, and test equipment for the various products we are capable of producing. In addition, we lease some of our administrative and manufacturing facilities. A complete discussion of properties can be found in Part 1, Item 2 at “Properties”. Leases have proven to be an acceptable method for us to acquire new or replacement equipment and to maintain facilities with a minimum impact on our short term cash flows for operations. Subsequent to June 30, 2012, the Company entered into an additional lease of approximately 13,000 square feet at a rate of $8.00 per square foot per year with the lease terminating on February 28, 2016.

(3) 

During fiscal year 2011, we entered into capital leases for the purchase of certain equipment and leasehold improvements. See Note 8, “Commitments and Contingencies” for additional discussion of capital lease obligations. Amounts presented above include interest and principal, if applicable.

As of June 30, 2012, we had open purchase order commitments for materials and other supplies of approximately $171.3 million. Included in the open purchase orders are various blanket orders for annual requirements. Actual needs under these blanket purchase orders fluctuate with our manufacturing levels. In addition, we have contracts with our customers that minimize our exposure to losses for material purchased within lead-times necessary to meet customer forecasts. Purchase orders generally can be cancelled without penalty within specified ranges that are determined in negotiations with our suppliers. These agreements depend in part on the type of materials purchased as well as the circumstances surrounding any requested cancellations.

In addition to the cash requirements presented above, we have various other accruals which are not included in the table above. We owe our suppliers approximately $36.4 million for accounts payable and shipments in transit at the end of the fiscal year. We generally pay our suppliers in a range from 30 to 120 days depending on terms offered. These payments are financed by operating cash flows and our revolving line of credit.

We believe that cash flows generated from operations, leasing facilities, and funds available under the revolving credit facility will satisfy cash requirements for a period in excess of 12 months and into the foreseeable future.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

Preparation of our consolidated financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amount of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses. Note 1 to our consolidated financial statements describes the significant accounting policies used in the preparation of our consolidated financial statements. Management believes the most complex and sensitive judgments, because of their significance to our consolidated financial statements, result primarily from the need to make estimates about effects of matters that are inherently uncertain. The most significant areas involving management judgments are described below. Actual results in these areas could differ from management’s estimates.

Inactive, Obsolete, and Surplus Inventory Reserve

We reserve for inventories that we deem inactive, obsolete or surplus. This reserve is calculated based upon the demand for the products that we produce. Demand is determined by expected sales, customer purchase orders, or customer forecasts. If expected sales do not materialize, then we would have inventory in excess of our reserves and would have to charge the excess against future earnings. In the case where we have purchased material based upon a customer’s forecast or purchase orders, we are usually covered by lead-time assurance agreements or purchase orders with each customer. These contracts state that the financial liability for material purchased within agreed upon lead-time and based upon the customer’s forecasts, lies with the customer. If we purchase material outside the lead-time assurance agreement and the customer’s forecasts do not materialize or if we have no lead-time assurance agreement for a specific program, we would have the financial liability and may have to charge inactive, obsolete or surplus inventory against earnings.

Allowance for Doubtful Accounts

We value our accounts receivable net of an allowance for doubtful accounts. As of June 30, 2012, we deemed no allowance was necessary. The allowance for doubtful accounts was $111,000 as of July 2, 2011. This allowance is based on estimates of the portion of accounts receivable that may not be collected in the future. The estimates used are based primarily on specific identification of potentially uncollectible accounts. Such accounts are identified using publicly available information in conjunction with evaluations of current payment activity. However, if any of our customers were to develop unexpected and immediate financial problems that would prevent payment of open invoices, we could incur additional and possibly material expenses that would negatively impact earnings.

Accrued Warranty

An accrual is made for expected warranty costs, with the related expense recognized in cost of goods sold. We review the adequacy of this accrual quarterly based on historical analysis and anticipated product returns and rework costs. As we have made the transition from manufacturing primarily keyboards to primarily EMS products, our exposure to warranty claims has declined significantly. Our warranty period for keyboards is generally longer than that for EMS products. We only warrant materials and workmanship on EMS products, and we do not warrant design defects for EMS customers.

Income Taxes

Income tax expense includes U.S. and international income taxes and the provision for U.S. taxes on undistributed earnings of foreign subsidiaries not deemed to be permanently invested. We do not record tax liabilities on undistributed earnings of international subsidiaries that are permanently reinvested. Certain income and expenses are not reported in tax returns and financial statements in the same year. The tax effect of such temporary differences is reported as deferred income taxes. The deferred income taxes are classified as current or long-term based on the classification of the related asset or liability. The most significant areas involving management judgments include deferred income tax assets and liabilities, uncertain tax positions, and research and development tax credits. Our estimates of the realization of the deferred tax assets related to our tax credits are based upon our estimates of future taxable income which may change.

Stock-Based Compensation

Stock-based compensation is accounted for according to Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 718, Compensation—Stock Compensation. ASC 718 requires us to expense the fair value of employee stock options, stock appreciation rights and other forms of stock-based compensation. Under the fair value recognition provisions of ASC 718, share-based compensation cost is estimated at the grant date based upon the value of the award and is recognized as expense ratably over the requisite service period of the award (generally the vesting period). Determining the appropriate fair value model and calculating the fair value of share-based awards requires judgment, including estimating the expected life of the share-based award, the expected stock price volatility over the expected life of the share-based award and forfeitures.

To determine the fair value of stock based awards on the date of grant we use the Black-Scholes option-pricing model. Inherent in this model are assumptions related to expected stock price volatility, option life, risk-free interest rate and dividend yield. The risk-free interest rate is a less-subjective assumption as it is based on factual data derived from public sources. We use a dividend yield of zero as we have never paid cash dividends and have no intention to pay cash dividends in the foreseeable future. The expected stock price volatility and option life assumptions require a greater level of judgment. Our expected stock-price volatility assumption is based upon the historical volatility of our stock which is obtained from public data sources. The expected life represents the weighted average period of time that share-based awards are expected to be outstanding, giving consideration to vesting schedules and historical exercise patterns. We determine the expected life assumption based upon the exercise and post-vesting behavior that has been exhibited historically, adjusted for specific factors that may influence future exercise patterns. If expected volatility or expected life were to increase, that would result in an increase in the fair value of our stock options which would result in higher compensation charges, while a decrease in volatility or the expected life would result in a lower fair value of our stock option awards resulting in lower compensation charges.

We estimate forfeitures for all of our awards based upon historical experience of stock-based pre-vesting forfeitures. We believe that our estimates are based upon outcomes that are reasonably likely to occur. If actual forfeitures are higher than our estimates it would result in lower compensation expense and to the extent the actual forfeitures are lower than our estimate we would record higher compensation expense.

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

Long-lived assets, such as property, plant, and equipment are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. The recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to the estimated undiscounted future cash flows expected to be generated by the asset. If the carrying amount of an asset exceeds its estimated undiscounted future cash flows, an impairment charge would be recognized in the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset exceeds the fair value of the asset.

Derivatives and Hedging Activity

Derivatives are recognized on the balance sheet at their estimated fair value. On the date a derivative contract is entered into, the Company designates the derivative as a hedge of a forecasted transaction or of the variability of cash flows to be received or paid related to a recognized asset or liability (a “cash flow” hedge). The Company does not enter into derivatives for speculative purposes. Changes in the fair value of a derivative that qualifies as a cash flow hedge are recorded in “Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income”, until earnings are affected by the variability of cash flows. See Note 10 of the Company’s consolidated financial statements for additional information.

See Note 1 to our consolidated financial statements.

 

Item 7A: QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

Interest Rate Risk

We are subject to the risk of fluctuating interest rates in the normal course of business. Our major market risk relates to our secured debt. Our revolving credit facility is secured by substantially all of our assets. The interest rates applicable to our revolving credit facility fluctuate with the JP Morgan Chase Bank prime rate and LIBOR rates. There was $15.0 million in outstanding borrowings under our revolving credit facility as of June 30, 2012, and the interest rate being paid on the outstanding balance was in the range of 2.35% – 3.25%. See “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations – Capital Resources and Liquidity” and Note 4 – “Long-Term Debt” to the Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information regarding our revolving credit facility.

Foreign Currency Exchange Risk

A significant portion of our operations are in foreign locations. As a result, transactions occur in currencies other than the U.S. dollar. Exchange rate fluctuations among other currencies used by us would directly or indirectly affect our financial results. We currently use Mexican peso forward contracts to hedge foreign currency fluctuations for a portion of our Mexican peso denominated expenses. There was $57.8 million of foreign currency forward contracts outstanding as of June 30, 2012. The fair value of these contracts was approximately ($1.0) million. See Note 10 – “Derivative Financial Instruments” to the Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information regarding our derivative instruments.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

The Board of Directors and Shareholders

Key Tronic Corporation

Spokane Valley, Washington

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Key Tronic Corporation (the Company) as of June 30, 2012 and July 2, 2011 and the related consolidated statements of income, comprehensive income, shareholders’ equity, and cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended June 30, 2012. In connection with our audits of the financial statements, we have also audited the financial statement schedule listed in the accompanying index. These financial statements and schedule are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements and schedule based on our audits.

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Key Tronic Corporation at June 30, 2012 and July 2, 2011, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended June 30, 2012, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Also, in our opinion, the financial statement schedule, when considered in relation to the basic consolidated financial statements taken as a whole, presents fairly, in all material respects, the information set forth therein.

Key Tronic Corporation and subsidiaries (the Company) is engaged in electronic manufacturing services (EMS) for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and also manufactures keyboards and other input devices. The Company’s headquarters are located in Spokane Valley, Washington with manufacturing operations in Spokane Valley; Juarez, Mexico; and Shanghai, China.

Principles of Consolidation

The consolidated financial statements include the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries in Mexico and China. Intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

Reclassifications

As discussed in Note 5, in the first quarter fiscal year 2012 financial statements the Company reclassified certain deferred tax assets and liabilities on its July 2, 2011 balance sheet. The reclassification was not material to the July 2, 2011 financial statements.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Estimates include the allowance for doubtful receivables, the provision for obsolete and non-saleable inventories, deferred tax assets and liabilities, uncertain tax positions, impairment of long-lived assets, medical self-funded insurance liability, long-term incentive compensation accrual, the provision for warranty costs, and the fair values of options and stock appreciation rights granted under the Company’s stock-based compensation plans. Due to uncertainties with respect to the assumptions and estimates actual results could differ from those estimates.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

The Company considers investments with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents. Cash equivalents are carried at cost, which approximates fair value.

Allowance for Doubtful Accounts

The Company evaluates the collectability of accounts receivable and records an allowance for doubtful accounts, which reduces the receivables to an amount that management reasonably estimates will be collected. A specific allowance is recorded against receivables considered to be impaired based on the Company’s knowledge of the financial condition of the customer. In determining the amount of the allowance, the Company considers several factors including the aging of the receivables, the current business environment, and historical experience. After all attempts to collect a receivable have failed, the receivable is written off against the allowance.

Inventories

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market. Cost is determined principally using the first-in, first-out (FIFO) method. The Company provides an allowance for obsolete and non-saleable inventories based on specific identification of inventory against current demand forecasts, recent usage, and customer contract requirements.

Property, Plant and Equipment

Property, plant and equipment are carried at cost and depreciated using straight-line methods over the expected useful lives of the assets. Internally constructed molds and dies are depreciated over the expected useful lives of one to two years. Repairs and maintenance costs are expensed as incurred.

Impairment of Long-lived Assets

The Company, using its best estimates based on reasonable and supportable assumptions and projections, reviews assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances have indicated that the carrying amount of its assets might not be recoverable. Impaired assets are reported at the lower of cost or fair value.

Accrued Warranty

An accrual is made for expected warranty costs, with the related expense recognized in cost of goods sold. Management reviews the adequacy of this accrual quarterly based on historical analyses and anticipated product returns.

Self-funded Insurance

The Company self-funds its domestic employee health plan. The Company contracted with a separate administrative service company to supervise and administer the program and act as its representative. The Company reduces its risk under this self-funded platform by purchasing stop-loss insurance coverage for individual claims. In addition, if the aggregate annual claims amount to more than 125 percent of expected claims for the plan year this insurance will also pay those claims amounts exceeding that level.

The Company estimates its exposure for claims incurred but not paid at the end of each reporting period and uses historical claims data supplied by the Company’s broker to estimate its self-funded insurance liability. This liability is subject to a total limitation that varies based on employee enrollment and factors that are established at each annual contract renewal. Actual claims experience may differ from the Company’s estimates. Costs related to the administration of the plan and related claims are expensed as incurred.

Revenue Recognition

Sales revenue from manufacturing is recognized upon shipment of the manufactured product per contractual terms. Upon shipment, title transfers and the customer assumes risks and rewards of ownership of the product. The price to the buyer is fixed or determinable and recoverability is reasonably assured. Unless specifically stated in contractual terms, there are no formal customer acceptance requirements or further obligations related to the manufacturing services; if any such requirements exist, then sales revenue is recognized at the time when such requirements are completed and such obligations are fulfilled. Revenue is recorded net of estimated returns of manufactured product based on management’s analysis of historical returns.

Revenues and associated costs from engineering design, development services and tooling, which are performed under contract of short term durations, are recognized only after the completed performance of the service. Revenue from engineering design, development services and tooling represented approximately 2.1 percent, 3.3 percent, and 2.4 percent of total revenue in fiscal years 2012, 2011, and 2010, respectively.

Shipping and Handling Fees

The Company classifies costs associated with shipping and handling fees as a component of cost of goods sold. Customer billings related to shipping and handling fees are reported as revenue.

Research, Development and Engineering

Research, development and engineering expenses include unreimbursed EMS costs as well as design and engineering costs associated with the production of EMS programs. Research, development and engineering costs are expensed as incurred.

Income Taxes

Income taxes are accounted for under the asset and liability method. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the estimated future tax consequences and benefits attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax basis, as well as operating losses and tax credit carryforwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which temporary differences and carryforwards are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities for a change in tax rates is recognized in the period that includes the enactment date. Valuation allowances are established when necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount that is more likely than not to be realized.

We utilize a two-step approach to recognizing and measuring uncertain tax positions. The first step is to evaluate the tax position for recognition by determining if the weight of available evidence indicates it is more likely than not that the position will be sustained on audit, including resolution of related appeals or litigation processes, if any. The second step is to measure the tax benefit as the largest amount which is more than 50% likely of being realized upon ultimate settlement. We consider many factors when evaluating and estimating our tax positions and tax benefits, which may require periodic adjustments based on new assessments and changes in estimates and which may not accurately forecast actual outcomes. Our policy is to recognize interest and penalties related to the underpayment of income taxes as a component of income tax provision. To date, we have not incurred charges for interest or penalties in relation to the underpayment of income taxes. The tax years 1997 through the present remain open to examination by the major U.S. taxing jurisdictions to which we are subject. Refer to Note 5 for further discussions.

Earnings Per Common Share

Basic earnings per common share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per common share is computed by dividing net income by the combination of other potentially dilutive weighted average common shares and the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period using the treasury stock method. The computation assumes the proceeds from the exercise of stock options were used to repurchase common shares at the average market price during the period. The computation of diluted earnings per common share does not assume conversion, exercise, or contingent issuance of common stock equivalent shares that would have an anti-dilutive effect on earnings per share.

Foreign Currency Transactions

The functional currency of the Company’s subsidiaries in Mexico and China is the U.S. dollar. Realized foreign currency transaction gains and losses for local currency denominated assets and liabilities are included in cost of goods sold.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The carrying values of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable and current liabilities reflected on the balance sheets at June 30, 2012 and July 2, 2011, reasonably approximate their fair value. Based on the borrowing rates currently available to the Company for loans with similar terms and average maturities, the fair value of long-term debt is estimated to be $15.0 million and $6.0 million, respectively, as of June 30, 2012 and July 2, 2011.

Stock-based Compensation

The Company’s incentive plan may provide for equity and liability awards to employees in the form of stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, restricted stock units, stock awards, stock units, performance shares, performance units, and other stock –based or cash-based awards. Compensation cost is recognized on a straight-line basis over the requisite employee service period, which is generally the vesting period, and is included in cost of goods sold and selling, general, and administrative expenses.

Newly Adopted and Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In May 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update 2011-04, Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRSs (ASU 2011-04). ASU 2011-04 amends Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements (ASC 820) by: (1) clarifying that the highest-and-best-use and valuation-premise concepts only apply to measuring the fair value of non-financial assets; (2) allowing a reporting entity to measure the fair value of the net asset or net liability position in a manner consistent with how market participants would price the net risk position, if certain criteria are met; (3) providing a framework for considering whether a premium or discount can be applied in a fair value measurement; (4) providing that the fair value of an instrument classified in a reporting entity’s shareholders’ equity is estimated from the perspective of a market participant that holds the identical item as an asset; and (5) expanding the qualitative and quantitative fair value disclosure requirements. The expanded disclosures include, for Level 3 items, a description of the valuation process and a narrative description of the sensitivity of the fair value to changes in unobservable inputs and interrelationships between those inputs if a change in those inputs would result in a significantly different fair value measurement. ASU 2011-04 also requires disclosures about the highest-and-best-use of a non-financial asset when this use differs from the asset’s current use and the reasons for such a difference. In addition, this ASU amends Accounting Standards Codification 820, Fair Value Measurements, to require disclosures to include any transfers between Level 1 and Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy. The adoption of the amendments of ASU 2011-04 during the third quarter of fiscal year 2012 did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

In June 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2011-05, Presentation of Comprehensive Income (ASU 2011-05). ASU 2011-05 requires entities to report components of comprehensive income in either (1) a continuous statement of comprehensive income or (2) two separate but consecutive statements. Under the two-statement approach, the first statement would include components of net income, and the second statement would include components of other comprehensive income. This ASU does not change the items that must be reported in other comprehensive income. These provisions are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2011 and for interim periods within those fiscal years; however, early adoption is permitted. The adoption of the provisions of ASU 2011-05 did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

In December 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2011-12, Deferral of the Effective Date for Amendments to the Presentation of Reclassifications of Items Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income in Accounting Standards Update 2011-05. ASU 2011-12 defers only those changes in ASU 2011-05 that relate to the presentation of reclassification adjustments. The Board has reinstated the requirements for the presentation of reclassifications out of accumulated other comprehensive income that were in place before the issuance of Update 2011-05. The adoption of the amendments of ASU 2011-12 did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

In December 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2011-11, Disclosures about Offsetting Assets and Liabilities. The amendments in this Update will enhance disclosures required by U.S. GAAP by requiring improved information about financial instruments and derivative instruments that are either (1) offset in accordance with either Section 210-20-45 or Section 815-10-45 or (2) subject to an enforceable master netting arrangement or similar agreement. The amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after January 1, 2013 and for interim periods within those fiscal years. The amendments of ASU 2011-11 are not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Fiscal Year

The Company operates on a 52/53 week fiscal year. Fiscal years end on the Saturday nearest June 30. As such, fiscal years 2012, 2011, and 2010, ended on June 30, 2012, July 2, 2011, and July 3, 2010, respectively. Fiscal years 2012 and 2011 were 52 week years, whereas fiscal year 2010 was a 53 week year.

4. LONG-TERM DEBT

Note Payable - Bank

On October 15, 2010, the Company entered into an amended credit agreement with Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. thereby increasing its revolving line of credit for up to $30 million. On January 30, 2012, the Company entered into a second amendment to the credit agreement extending the term to October 15, 2016. The agreement specifies that the proceeds of the revolving line of credit be used primarily for working capital and general corporate purposes of the Company and its subsidiaries. Borrowings under this revolving line of credit bear interest at either a “Base Rate” or a “Fixed Rate”, as elected by the Company. The base rate is the higher of the Wells Fargo Bank prime rate, daily one month London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) plus 1.5%, or the Federal Funds rate plus 1.5%. The fixed rate is LIBOR plus 2.1% or LIBOR plus 2.5% depending on the level of the Company’s trailing four quarters Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA). The revolving line of credit is secured by substantially all of the assets of the Company.

The Company must comply with certain financial covenants, including a cash flow leverage ratio and a trading ratio. The credit agreement requires the Company to maintain a minimum profit threshold, limits the maximum lease expenditures and restricts the Company from declaring or paying dividends in cash or stock. The Company is in compliance with all financial covenants for all periods presented.

As of June 30, 2012, the Company had availability to borrow an additional $15.0 million under the line of credit. The outstanding balance under the credit facility was $15.0 million as of June 30, 2012 and the interest rate being paid on the outstanding balance was in the range of 2.35% - 3.25%. The outstanding balance under the credit facility was $6.0 million as of July 2, 2011 and the interest rate on the outstanding balances was 2.48%.

   $ 2,215      $ 746      $ (1,404
  

 

 

   

 

 

   

 

 

 

The Company has total tax credit carryforwards of approximately $10.2 million at June 30, 2012. Included in total tax credits carryforwards is approximately $6.8 million in research and development (R&D) tax credits. In accordance with ASC 740, Income Taxes, management assessed the Company’s estimated taxable income and determined a need for a valuation allowance of certain tax credits related to research and development activities which are anticipated to expire in 2012. A valuation allowance of approximately $257,000 has been recognized as of June 30, 2012 related to these tax credits.

Management also has reviewed its other deferred tax assets for purposes of determining whether or not a valuation allowance may be required. A valuation allowance against these deferred tax assets is required if it is more likely than not that some of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. Based on the Company’s increased profitability and estimated future repatriations from foreign subsidiaries, it has been determined that it is more likely than not that the deferred tax assets will be realized. Therefore, no additional valuation allowance has been recognized.

Management has reviewed and updated as necessary estimates of future repatriations of the undistributed earnings of its foreign subsidiaries. Based on this analysis, management expects to repatriate a portion of the foreign undistributed earnings based on increased sales growth driving additional U.S. capital requirements, cash requirements for potential acquisitions and to potentially implement certain tax strategies. No foreign earnings were repatriated from either foreign subsidiary during fiscal 2012. The Company currently estimates that future repatriations from foreign subsidiaries will approximate $7.5 million. As such, as earnings are recognized in the United States, the Company would be subject to U.S. federal and state income taxes and potential withholding taxes estimated to be approximately $3.1 million. Both the domestic tax and estimated withholding tax have been recorded as part of deferred taxes as of June 30, 2012. Included in tax credits is $2.6 million related to foreign tax credits that can be used to offset future domestic income tax. All other unremitted foreign earnings are expected to remain permanently reinvested for planned fixed asset purchases in foreign locations.

The Company has not provided for U.S. income taxes or foreign withholding taxes on approximately $7.8 million of earnings from foreign subsidiaries which are permanently reinvested outside the U.S. The unrecognized net tax provision that would be associated with these earnings would be approximately $1.0 million.

The Company has a wholly owned foreign subsidiary in Mexico that applies certain tax credits related to production assets that currently offset all of the income tax liabilities under general Mexican income tax law. However, the Company is subject to a Mexican business flat tax called Impuesto Empresarial a Tasa Unica (IETU). The Company anticipates that it will be taxable under IETU for the foreseeable future based on projected assets used in its operations and anticipated future cash flows. The effect of IETU and the associated presidential decrees have been included in the effective tax rate for the year ended June 30, 2012.

At June 30, 2012 the Company utilized all its NOLs carried forward from prior years in both the U. S. and Chinese jurisdictions. The Company has R&D tax credits that approximate $6.8 million that have 15 or 20 year carryforwards before expiring. The Company’s R&D tax credits expire in various fiscal years from 2013 to 2032. The Company also has alternative minimum tax credits approximating $726,000. The alternative minimum tax credits do not expire.

Uncertain Tax Positions

As of June 30, 2012, the Company had unrecognized tax benefits of $3.0 million. The unrecognized tax benefits relate to certain R&D tax credits generated in 2012 and prior years.

A reconciliation of the beginning and ending amount of unrecognized tax benefits is as follows:

 

Balance at July 3, 2010

   $ —     

Additions in fiscal 2011

     781   
  

 

 

 

Balance at July 2, 2011

   $ 781   

Additions in fiscal 2012

     2,222   

Balance at June 30, 2012

   $ 3,003   
  

 

 

 

The increase from the prior year is due to additional R&D credits that were recorded in 2012 as discussed above. Management does not anticipate any material changes to this amount during the next 12 months.

The Company recognizes interest accrued related to unrecognized tax benefits and penalties in its income tax provision. The Company has not recognized any interest or penalties in the fiscal years presented in these financial statements. The Company is subject to income tax in the U.S. federal jurisdiction, Mexico and China. Certain years remain subject to examination but there are currently no ongoing exams in any taxing jurisdictions.

The July 2, 2011 balance sheet in the accompanying financial statements includes two reclassifications that were not reflected in the July 2, 2011 Form 10-K. The reclassifications decreased the short term deferred tax asset by approximately $0.6 million with a corresponding decrease in the current portion of the deferred tax liability. There was also a reclassification to decrease the long term portion of the deferred tax asset by approximately $3.6 million with a corresponding decrease in the deferred tax liability. These balance sheet reclassifications related to the netting of the deferred tax accounts within the same tax jurisdiction did not impact the Company’s debt covenants, working capital, cash flows or income statement accounts and were not material to the July 2, 2011 consolidated financial statements.

6. EARNINGS PER SHARE

Basic earnings per share (EPS) is calculated by dividing net income (the numerator) by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding (the denominator) during the period. Diluted EPS is computed by including both the weighted-average number of shares outstanding and any dilutive common share equivalents in the denominator. The following table presents a reconciliation of the denominator and the number of antidilutive common share awards that were not included in the diluted earnings per share calculation. These antidilutive securities occur when equity awards outstanding have an option price greater than the average market price for the period:

The Company’s incentive plan provides for equity and liability awards to employees and non-employee directors in the form of stock options, stock appreciation rights (SARs), restricted stock, restricted stock units, stock awards, stock units, performance shares, performance units, and other stock –based or cash-based awards. Compensation cost is recognized on a straight-line basis over the requisite employee service period, which is generally the vesting period, and is recorded as employee compensation expense in cost of goods sold and selling general and administrative expenses. Share-based compensation is recognized only for those awards that are expected to vest, with forfeitures estimated at the date of grant based on historical experience and future expectations.

On July 27, 2011, the Company granted 184,666 SARs under the 2010 Incentive Plan to certain key employees and outside directors at a strike price of $4.40 and a grant date weighted average fair market value of $2.20. On January 26, 2012, the Company granted 32,000 SARs under the 2010 Incentive Plan to certain key employees at a strike price of $6.30 and a grant date weighted average fair market value of $3.08. In addition to service conditions, these SARs contain a performance condition. The additional performance condition is based upon the achievement of Return on Invested Capital (ROIC) goals relative to a peer group. All awards with performance conditions are measured over the vesting period and are charged to compensation expense over the requisite service period based on the number of shares expected to vest. The SARs cliff vest after a three-year period from date of grant and expire five years from date of grant.

The grant date fair value for the awards granted during fiscal year 2012 were estimated using the Black Scholes option valuation method with the following weighted average assumptions on grant date:

 

     Fiscal Year 2012  
     January 26, 2012     July 27, 2011  

Expected dividend yield

     0.00     0.00

Risk – free interest rate

     0.52     1.16

Expected volatility

     64.90     65.50

Expected life

On October 21, 2010, the Company obtained shareholder approval of the 2010 Incentive Plan at the Annual Shareholder Meeting. As a result, the Company replaced the cash-settlement feature with a net-share-settlement feature for the SARs granted during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010. Therefore, the awards were reclassified from liability awards to equity awards effective October 21, 2010 at a weighted average fair value of $2.89.

The fair value for the liability awards amended to equity awards during fiscal year 2011 were estimated using the Black-Scholes option valuation model with the following weighted average assumptions as of October 21, 2010:

 

     Fiscal Year 2011  
     October 21, 2010  

Expected dividend yield

     0.00

Risk – free interest rate

     0.73

Expected volatility

     68.30

Expected life

     3.56   

Stock-based compensation expense is recognized only for those awards that are expected to vest, with forfeitures estimated at the date of grant based on the Company’s historical experience and future expectations. This forfeiture rate will be revised, if necessary, in subsequent periods if actual forfeitures differ from the amount estimated. Stock-based compensation expense for fiscal years ended June 30, 2012, July 2, 2011 and July 3, 2010 was $0.6 million, $0.5 million and $0.1 million, respectively.

The Black-Scholes option valuation model was developed for use in estimating the fair value of traded options, which differ significantly from the SARs, as traded options have no vesting restrictions and are fully transferable. In addition, option valuation models require the input of highly subjective assumptions, particularly for the expected term and expected stock price volatility. Changes in these assumptions can materially affect the fair value estimates.

The intrinsic value for options exercised in fiscal years 2012, 2011 and 2010 was $0.3 million, $0.2 million and $0.5 million, respectively.

As of June 30, 2012, total unrecognized compensation expense related to nonvested share-based compensation arrangements was approximately $0.8 million. This expense is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 1.47 years.

Warranty Costs: The Company provides warranties on certain product sales, and allowances for estimated warranty costs are recorded during the period of sale. The determination of such allowances requires the Company to make estimates of product return rates and expected costs to repair or to replace the products under warranty. The Company establishes warranty reserves based on historical warranty costs for each product line combined with liability estimates based on the prior twelve months’ sales activities.

If actual return rates and/or repair and replacement costs differ significantly from estimates, adjustments to recognize additional cost of sales may be required in future periods.

Components of the reserve for warranty costs during fiscal years 2012, 2011, and 2010 were as follows (in thousands):

Litigation: The Company is party to certain lawsuits or claims in the ordinary course of business. The Company does not believe that these proceedings, individually or in the aggregate, will have a material adverse effect on the financial position, results of operations or cash flow of the Company.

Indemnification Rights: Under the Company’s bylaws, the Company’s directors and officers have certain rights to indemnification by the Company against certain liabilities that may arise by reason of their status or service as directors or officers. The Company maintains director and officer insurance, which may cover certain liabilities arising from its obligation to indemnify its directors and officers and former directors in certain circumstances.

9. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

The Company has adopted ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements, which defines fair value, establishes a framework for assets and liabilities being measured and reported at fair value and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. There are three levels of fair value hierarchy inputs used to value assets and liabilities which include: Level 1 – inputs are quoted market prices for identical assets or liabilities; Level 2 – inputs other than quoted market prices included in Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly; and Level 3 – inputs are unobservable inputs for the asset or liability. There have been no changes in the fair value methodologies used at June 30, 2012 and July 2, 2011.

The following table summarizes the Company’s financial assets and liabilities (only those required to be measured at fair value on a recurring basis) at fair value as of June 30, 2012 and July 2, 2011 (in thousands):

The Company currently has forward contracts to hedge known future cash outflows for expenses denominated in the Mexican peso. These contracts are measured on a recurring basis based on the foreign currency spot rates and forward rates quoted by banks or foreign currency dealers. These contracts are marked to market using level 2 input criteria every period with the unrealized gain or loss, net of tax, reported as a component of shareholders’ equity in accumulated other comprehensive income, as they qualify for hedge accounting.

The carrying values of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable and current liabilities reflected on the balance sheets at June 30, 2012 and July 2, 2011, reasonably approximate their fair value. The Company’s long-term debt primarily consists of a revolving line of credit. Borrowings under this revolving line of credit bear interest at the higher of Wells Fargo Bank prime rate, daily one month London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) plus 1.5% to 2.5%, or the Federal Funds rate plus 1.5%. Each of these rates is a variable floating rate dependent upon current market conditions and the Company’s current credit risk. As a result of the determinable market rate for our revolving credit debt it is classified within Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy. The discounted cash flow of the revolving line of credit is estimated to be $15.0 million and $6.0 million, respectively, as of June 30, 2012 and July 2, 2011, which carrying value approximates the fair value.

10. DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

The Company has entered into foreign currency forward contracts and those contracts are accounted for as cash flow hedges. The effective portion of the gain or loss on the derivative is reported as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income (AOCI) and is reclassified into earnings in the same period in which the underlying hedged transaction affects earnings. The derivative’s effectiveness represents the change in fair value of the hedge that offsets the change in fair value of the hedged item.

The Company transacts business in Mexico and is subject to the risk of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations. The Company enters into foreign currency forward contracts to manage the foreign currency fluctuations for Mexican peso denominated payroll, utility, tax, and accounts payable expenses. The foreign currency forward contracts have terms that are matched to the underlying transactions being hedged. As a result, these transactions fully offset the hedged risk and no ineffectiveness has been recorded.

As of June 30, 2012, the Company had outstanding foreign currency forward contracts of $57.8 million. These contract maturity dates extend through March 2015. As of June 30, 2012, the net amount of existing losses expected to be reclassified into earnings within the next 12 months is $0.3 million. During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012, the Company entered into $41.1 million of foreign currency forward contracts, which includes $5.6 million of foreign cross currency swaps which are also accounted for as cash flow hedges in accordance with ASC 815, Derivatives and Hedging, and settled $21.2 million of such contracts. During the fiscal year ended July 2, 2011, the Company entered into $21.7 million of foreign currency forward contracts and settled $14.6 million of such contracts. During the fiscal year ended July 3, 2010, the Company entered into $30.9 million of foreign currency forward contracts and settled $17.8 million of such contracts.

The Company does not enter into derivative instruments for trading or speculative purposes. The Company’s counterparties to the foreign currency forward contracts are major banking institutions. These institutions do not require collateral for the contracts, and the Company believes that the risk of the counterparties failing to meet their contractual obligations is remote.

As of June 30, 2012, the Company does not have any foreign exchange contracts with credit-risk-related contingent features. The Company is subject to the risk of fluctuating interest rates from our line of credit and foreign currency risk resulting from its China operations. The Company does not currently manage these risk exposures by using derivative instruments.

There can be no assurance that the Company’s principal customers will continue to purchase products from the Company at current levels. Moreover, the Company typically does not enter into long-term volume purchase contracts with its customers, and the Company’s customers have certain rights to extend or delay the shipment of their orders. The loss of one or more of the Company’s major customers, or the reduction, delay or cancellation of orders from such customers, could materially and adversely affect the Company’s business, operating results and financial condition.

Item 9: CHANGES IN AND DISAGREEMENTS WITH ACCOUNTANTS ON ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL DISCLOSURES

None

 

Item 9A: CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

It is the responsibility of our management to establish, maintain, and monitor disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 are recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms. Additionally, these disclosure controls include controls and procedures that are designed to accumulate and communicate the information required to be disclosed to our Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, allowing for timely decisions regarding required disclosures. As of the end of the period covered by this report, our management carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures pursuant to Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(f). Based on our assessment, we believe that as of June 30, 2012, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are effective based on that criteria.

Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

Our management has the responsibility to establish and maintain adequate internal controls over our financial reporting, as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934. Our internal controls are designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of our financial reporting and the preparation of our external financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

Due to inherent limitations of any internal control system, management acknowledges that there are limitations as to the effectiveness of internal controls over financial reporting and therefore recognize that only reasonable assurance can be gained from any internal control system. Accordingly, our internal control system may not detect or prevent material misstatements in our financial statements and projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

Under the supervision and participation of management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, we have performed an assessment of the effectiveness of our internal controls over financial reporting as of June 30, 2012. This assessment was based on the criteria established in Internal Control-Integrated Framework, issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission. Based on our assessment, we believe that as of June 30, 2012, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting is effective based on that criteria.

This annual report does not include an attestation report of our registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation by our registered public accounting firm pursuant to rules of the SEC that permit us to provide only management’s report in this annual report.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

There have been no significant changes in our internal controls over financial reporting during our fourth fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2012 that have materially affected, or are reasonable likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a – 15(f) and 15d – 15(f)).
