Management Discussion
  • Sales for the three months ended March 31, 2021 were $505.7 million, a 2% decrease from sales of $515.0 million during the three months ended March 31, 2020. During the first quarter of 2021, sales to customers in our various industry sectors fluctuated from the first quarter of 2020 as follows:
  • The overall revenue decrease was due primarily to lower demand from customers in A&D, oil and gas industrials, and medical sectors (as discussed below). Higher-value market revenues were down 4% year-over-year from softness in A&D, Industrials and Medical, partially offset by an increase in Semi-Cap. Traditional market revenues were up 8% year-over-year primarily from strength in the Computing sector.
  • Our sales depend on the success of our customers, some of which operate in businesses associated with rapid technological change and consequent product obsolescence. Developments adverse to our major customers or their products, the availability of electronic component supply, or the failure of a major customer to pay for components or services, including in each case as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, can adversely affect us. A substantial percentage of our sales are made to a small number of customers, and the loss of a major customer, if not replaced, would adversely affect us. Sales to our ten largest customers represented 44% and 42% of our sales during the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively.
