TRT

For the three months ended September 30, 2023, revenue decreased by 17% to $9,966,000 from $11,939,000 for the first quarter of fiscal 2023, primarily due to lower revenue in the Company’s testing services and manufacturing segments. Reflecting this decrease, gross margin declined to 25% of revenue compared to 30% of revenue for last year’s first quarter.

Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2024 was $230,000, or $0.05 per diluted share. This compares to net income of $882,000, or $0.21 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2023.

Cash and cash equivalents at September 30, 2023, increased to $8,333,000 compared to $7,583,000 at June 30, 2023, and shareholders’ equity increased to $29,655,000, or $7.24 per outstanding share, compared to $29,571,000, or $7.22 per outstanding share, at June 30, 2023. There were approximately 4,096,680 common shares outstanding at September 30, 2023 and June 30, 2023.

CEO Comments

S.W. Yong, Trio-Tech’s Chairman & CEO, said, “We are glad to announce that we have delivered our first dynamic test system, related to the contract we announced last Spring, and are currently waiting for customer on-site buy off. While we see encouraging signs that demand for Trio-Tech’s products and services among our key customers has begun to stabilize, we remain cautious in the short term and are focused on enhancing customer service and our ability to rapidly adapt to changing market conditions.

“We anticipate a significant recovery of distribution sales in fiscal 2024 and have positioned ourselves as a value-added reseller, offering extended research and development services to customize and integrate products for new and existing customers. Together, these efforts support our longer-term goal to broaden and diversify product offerings to our customer base and take advantage of new growth opportunities we have identified in providing industry display solutions for medical laboratory equipment and arcade gaming industries.”
