Pacific Insight Announces Fiscal 2017 First Quarter Results

VANCOUVER, Nov. 14, 2016 /CNW/ - Pacific Insight Electronics Corp. ("Pacific Insight" or the "Company") (TSX: PIH), a world-class electronics and full service solutions provider to the transportation industry, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended September 30, 2016. All figures are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise stated. 

Financial Highlights

For the 3 months ended

In thousands of dollars (except EPS)

September 30, 2016

September 30, 2015






Net income for the period



Earnings per fully diluted share




For the period ended September 30, 2016, revenues were $30.7 million compared to $30.4 million in the same period last year, an increase of $0.3 million, or 1.0%. The increase in revenues was driven by new LED lighting product launches, offset by slower growth on certain automotive customer program orders.

Net income for the three months ended September 30, 2016 was $1.1 million or 15¢ per diluted share compared with $2.0 million or 33¢ per diluted share in the prior year quarter. The decrease was due to reduced gross margins and increased operational costs involved with the undertaking and launch of a new customer program in the start-up stage. If revenues and non-recurring costs associated with this new program were removed from the operating results for the quarter, net income would have increased by $1.3 million to $2.4 million, and earnings per diluted share would have increased by $0.17 to $0.32.

As previously disclosed, during fiscal 2016, the Company began developing ambient lighting products for an electric vehicle OEM, which are sold through Tier 2 relationships. The launch activities associated with investment in this new business were projected to generate less favourable results through to the end of fiscal 2017 quarter one. Second quarter margins on this new program are expected to become consistent with the Company's other automotive programs. 

This news release should be read in conjunction with Pacific Insight's condensed interim consolidated financial statements for the three months ended September 30, 2016 and the related Management's Discussion and Analysis, which can be found on
