IEC also noted that the fiscal fourth quarter of 2018 included a one-time tax benefit of $7.8 million, or $0.76 per share. Looking ahead, Schlarbaum is optimistic about fiscal 2020.  “As we look to our upcoming year, our pipeline remains strong with our fiscal 2019 year-end backlog at $212 million, which represents a 59% increase from fiscal 2018,” Schlarbaum said. “The backlog growth is a direct result of our focused strategy of expanding our relationships with existing customers in addition to on-boarding new strategic customers who value our unique service model.” Schlarbaum concluded, “We’re energized by our strong performance in fiscal 2019 and look forward to driving continued success in 2020. We remain focused on our mission to minimize supply chain risk for our customers and to provide the expertise required for the life-saving and mission critical products we support. With the people, technology and customer relationships we have in place today, we believe we are well positioned to grow our leadership position and capture additional market share.” Founded in 1966, IEC, together with its subsidiaries, provides electronic manufacturing services to the defense, medical, industrial, and aerospace sectors in the US.
