Key Technology Announces Fiscal 2010 Third Quarter Results

Operating expenses for the quarter ended June 30, 2010 were $8.6 million, or 27.1% of net sales, compared to $9.1 million, or 34.8% of net sales, in the same quarter last year. Operating expenses for the nine months ended June 30, 2010 were $25.5 million, or 30.1% of net sales, compared to $29.5 million, or 38.3% of net sales, for the corresponding period of fiscal 2009.

Camp further commented, "We continue to closely monitor, assess and optimize our ongoing operating expense infrastructure." 

New orders received during the third quarter of fiscal 2010 were $29.7 million, compared to $20.7 million in the same period last year. For the nine-month period of fiscal 2010, new orders received were $84.9 million, compared to $69.5 million for the same period in fiscal 2009. The Company's backlog at the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2010 was $29.9 million, compared to $26.2 million one year ago.

Camp concluded, "Based on our current ending backlog and shipment schedule, we currently expect sales in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010 to be lower than the sales recorded in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009. However, our orders through the third quarter of fiscal 2010 have increased over 22% compared to the same period a year ago, and we are encouraged by this trend, given the uncertain economic environment."
