ST. LOUIS – For the third quarter of fiscal 2008, EMS firm LaBarge Inc. expects net sales of $75.4 million, up 27% year-over-year, beating previous guidance.
In March, the company projected net sales of $70 million to $72 million.
LaBarge reported first-half net sales of $126.2 million.
The company also updated fourth-quarter guidance, stating it expects sales and earnings to be comparable to this year’s preliminary third-quarter results, up substantially from the prior-year fourth quarter.
“Third-quarter results were better than we had previously anticipated due to some customers accelerating deliveries and broad-based strength in our end markets. That strength is continuing and we anticipate fourth-quarter results will be comparable to the preliminary third-quarter results announced today,” said Craig LaBarge, CEO and president.
Full third-quarter results will be announced May 1.

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.
