Notably, $180.2 million of the backlog is expected to ship within the next 12 months, which represents a year-over-year increase of 19.1% compared to $151.3 million at the end of fiscal 2019. We are focused on continuing to enhance our offerings to build on our leadership position as a 100% US-based integrated manufacturing partner. We are pleased with the operational and financial success we achieved in fiscal 2020, despite the challenges presented by the global pandemic, and we are energized by the opportunities ahead in fiscal 2021 to drive continued growth and profitability.”
