SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. , Sept. 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On September 5, 2017, Key Tronic Corporation (Nasdaq:KTCC), a provider of electronic manufacturing services, became aware of filings made by Cemtrex, Inc. ("Filer") with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on September 5, 2017, which stated that Filer intends to commence an exchange offer for the outstanding shares of common stock of Key Tronic.  Prior to such filings, Key Tronic was unaware of Filer's purported interest in Key Tronic and had not had any communications with Filer or any of its affiliates relating to such interest.

The Filer's statements were set forth in a registration statement for shares of Filer's common stock, which describes a purported offer to exchange one share of Key Tronic's common stock for one share of Filer's common stock.  At the close of business on September 6, 2017, the closing price for Key Tronic's common stock was $6.81 and the closing price for Filer's common stock was $3.15.  Consequently, the purported offer would represent a discount of 53.7% per share to the price of Key Tronic's common stock as of the closing prices of September 6, 2017.  Based on Filer's current SEC filings, Key Tronic understands that Filer has not commenced a formal exchange offer and that any such offer would require additional SEC filings by Filer.

Key Tronic remains optimistic about growth opportunities and our competitive strengths as discussed in our recent earnings release and conference call.  We are continuing our business consistent with our existing strategic plan.
