Results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020 include the impact of approximately $4.1 million of COVID-19 related costs.

"Thanks to the commitment and tireless work of our global Benchmark team, we continue to successfully navigate this challenging pandemic environment.  Protecting our people remains our highest priority and we will continue our vigilance to keep people safe and our locations operational," said Jeff Benck, Benchmark President and CEO.

"Despite the current macro conditions, our team has focused on delivering products to meet the needs of our customers.  Our diversified portfolio remains a strength at this time as we saw strong second quarter growth in our Medical and Semi-cap sectors. Moving into the third quarter, we expect sequential improvements in revenue, profit and utilization underpinned by stronger demand from our Semi-Cap and Defense customers where we have industry leading positions."

Overall, higher-value market revenues during the second quarter were down 6% quarter-over-quarter and flat year-over-year.  Demand strength in Medical supporting COVID-19 solutions and new product ramps, as well as the continued Semi-cap recovery, were offset by weakness in commercial Aerospace and Industrial markets.  Traditional market revenues were up 2% quarter-over-quarter due to stronger demand for high performance computing products and down 54% year-over-year primarily from the Company's conscious exit of a legacy computing contract in 2019.

Third Quarter 2020 Outlook

  • Revenue between $490 - $530 million
  • Diluted GAAP earnings per share between $0.21 - $0.26
  • Diluted non-GAAP earnings per share between $0.26 - $0.30 (excluding restructuring charges and other costs and amortization of intangibles)
  • Our guidance includes known constraints due to COVID-19 and assumes no further significant interruptions occur to our supply base, operations, or customers. Guidance also assumes no material changes to market conditions due to COVID-19.

Restructuring charges are expected to range between $0.8 million to $1.2 million in the third quarter and the amortization of intangibles is expected to be $2.4 million in the third quarter.

Second Quarter 2020 Earnings Conference Call
The Company will host a conference call to discuss the results today at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time.  The live webcast of the call and accompanying reference materials will be accessible by logging on to the Company's website at www.bench.com.

Forward-Looking Statements
This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The words "expect," "estimate," "anticipate," "could", "predict" and similar expressions, and the negatives thereof, often identify forward-looking statements, which are not limited to historical facts. Forward-looking statements include, among other things, the estimated financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, our outlook and guidance for third quarter 2020 results, the company's anticipated plans and responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, statements (express or implied) concerning future operating results or margins, the ability to generate sales and income or cash flow, and expected revenue mix, and Benchmark's business and growth strategies. Although the company believes these statements are based on and derived from reasonable assumptions, they involve risks and uncertainties relating to operations, markets and the business environment generally.  These statements also depend on the duration and severity of the COVID-19 pandemic and related risks, including government and other third-party responses to the crisis and the consequences for the global economy, our business and the businesses of our suppliers and customers.  Events relating to or resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, including the possibility of customer demand fluctuations, supply chain constraints, or the ability to utilize our manufacturing facilities at sufficient levels to cover our fixed operating costs, may have resulting impacts on the company's business, financial condition, results of operations, and the company's ability (or inability) to execute on its plans to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.  If one or more of these risks or uncertainties materializes, or underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual outcomes may vary materially from those indicated. Readers are advised to consult further disclosures on these risks and uncertainties, particularly in Part 1, Item 1A, "Risk Factors" of the company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 and in its subsequent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. All forward-looking statements included in this document are based upon information available to the company as of the date of this document, and it assumes no obligation to update them.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Management discloses non–GAAP information to provide investors with additional information to analyze the Company's performance and underlying trends. Management uses non–GAAP measures that exclude certain items in order to better assess operating performance and help investors compare results with our previous guidance.  This document also references "free cash flow", which the Company defines as cash flow from operations less additions to property, plant and equipment and purchased software.  The Company's non–GAAP information is not necessarily comparable to the non–GAAP information used by other companies.  Non–GAAP information should not be viewed as a substitute for, or superior to, net income or other data prepared in accordance with GAAP as a measure of the Company's profitability or liquidity.  Readers should consider the types of events and transactions for which adjustments have been made.
