“While consolidated net sales for our second quarter were in line with analysts’ expectations, our earnings came in slightly below,” noted Viasystems’ Chief Executive Officer, David M. Sindelar. “However, I believe we gained momentum in the quarter and still expect to see sales and earnings improvements in the second half of the year. In particular, we have been awarded significant new projects in most of our end markets. These new project awards are a subset of a solid book-to-bill ratio in the second quarter. The new projects are also expected to complement our continued recovery from the setbacks we suffered in both our PCB and Assembly segments last year.”
