RICHARDSON, TX – TXP Corp. today reported a fourth quarter net loss of $5.8 million on sales of $2.8 million.

For the three months ended Dec. 31, the EMS/ODM company’s earnings were down more than 300% year-over-year on a 9% drop in revenues. Gross profits dropped 3.2% to $777,000. The 2006 quarter included a one-time gain of $997,000; excluding that gain, sales were up 33% for the quarter.

For the year, revenue rose 34% to a record $11 million. The operating loss was $6.2 million, versus $1.3 million last year. The net loss almost doubled, to $8.9 million. The losses included non-cash expenses of approximately $3 million, including a "change in the fair value of the derivative financial instruments" attributable to the increase in the share price at year-end.

The number of customers rose to 139, from 110 last year.


Eastern-US: China’s New Competitor?

Parity emerges among EMS Factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
