Operating margin was 3.5%. Dean Foate, Chairman, President and CEO, commented, “Fiscal first quarter revenue and EPS results were largely in-line with our guidance. Consistent with the expectations we set last quarter, we are guiding our fiscal second quarter revenue sequentially flat at the midpoint of our guidance range, as new program ramps offset revenue lost from the two previously announced program disengagements. Fiscal second quarter 2016 revenue guidance is USD 600 to USD 630 million with diluted EPS in the range of USD 0.47 to USD 0.55 before restructuring charges.”
