Earnings per fully diluted share






For the second quarter ended December 31, 2016, revenues were $29.8 million compared to $30.5 million in the prior year period, a decrease of $0.7 million, or 2.1%. The small decrease in revenues was driven by lower volume from existing commercial and automotive programs as a result of general market conditions, offset by the impact of new program launches.

Net income for the three months ended December 31, 2016 was $1.8 million or 24¢ per diluted share compared with $2.4 million or 36¢ per diluted share in the prior year quarter. Net income decreased compared with the prior period as a result of lower revenues, increases in amortization of intangible assets from program development activity, and favourable foreign exchange impacts in the prior year period.

During the second quarter, launch activities were finalized and costs and gross margins associated with the Company's new electric vehicle OEM customer, as previously disclosed, were consistent with other automotive programs.

The Company's primary fiscal 2017 focus is to optimize operational efficiency, productivity, and production capacity and develop new opportunities. During the six months ended December 31, 2016, the Company generated $4.9 million in operating cash flow, reduced indebtedness by $2.2 million, and reduced inventory levels by $2.8 million through supply chain and stock level efficiencies.

This news release should be read in conjunction with Pacific Insight's condensed interim consolidated financial statements for the three months ended December 31, 2016 and the related Management's Discussion and Analysis, which can be found under the Company's profile on
