  • Gross margin of 11.6%, a 1.6 percentage point improvement compared to 10.0% in the second quarter of fiscal 2013
  • SG&A expenses of $19.6 million, a 17.5% reduction compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2013

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $8.6 million compared to $5.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013

ModusLink reported net revenue of $194.0 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2014, compared to $203.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. Operating income for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 improved to $1.2 million, compared to an operating loss of $8.5 million in the second quarter of the previous year. Net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 improved to $1.1 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $12.6 million, or $0.29 per share.

The decline in net revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was primarily driven by lower revenue from a software client that reorganized its supply chain and in the same period last year experienced high unit volumes due to a major product launch. The lower revenue from the software client primarily affected results in Europe, and was partially offset by significant revenue growth from a consumer electronics client, which primarily benefited results in the Americas and Europe. The improvement in gross margin, operating income and Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was primarily driven by the Company’s cost reduction actions and lower professional fees.
