There is an applied materials revolution going on that Battelle Institute scientists rank as #2, right behind human genome mapping, as the scientific area that will change our lives the most over the next 15 years. SIGA's flextronics division is tied directly to the applied materials revolution. New materials mean new ways to shape products, supplanting rigid circuit boards. This is the area that put the enthusiasm into the voice of SIGA officials when I first talked to SIGA. Flextronics is already their fastest growing area (though from a low base). PCBs will pay the bills for now, but watch flextronics for long term growth.

Karl,

Did you see the announcment that Continental Circuits is planning on purchasing SIGA for .7 shares of their stock. The announcement just came out. I put the value around $8.40. This does put a new twist on the year end projections. Do you have any ideas ? Thanks in advance for your input.

Thanks for the posting. I'll see what I can find out. $8.40 looks cheap to me.

Info on Continental Circuits: Aug. 30--A Phoenix circuit-board manufacturer is betting that a downturn in the semiconductor industry is over and plans to hire 100 employees in the next nine months. Continental Circuits Corp. recently bought a facility for $1.1 million and is renovating it to manufacture circuit boards. The building had been owned by IPEC/Planar, a chemical mechanical polisher that doubled its manufacturing space by moving into a 150,000-square-foot facility in Phoenix. Continental plans to use IPEC's old building for a "quick-turn facility," one in which customer designs will be made within a few days, company President Rick McNamee said.

From CHICAGO CORP investment report on CCIR: We remain very confident in our outlook for FY97, and we reiterate our BUY recommendation. Revenues are approaching $135 million, even without a quick turn facility and without further acquisitions. This revenue level would equate to an earnings-per-share level of $1.40 for FY97 (July) vs. our current estimate of $0.98 for FY96.

If the Chicago Corp. report is anywhere close to the mark, and SIGA can contribute anywhere close to $1.00/share from its side, this is a savvy deal. If $2 is a reasonable EPS estimate for the combined companies, then CCIR should trade at $30, giving our SIGA shares a value of $21 by next July. This is obviously a very cursory analysis.

Sales were up 17% vs. year ago, $18.8 mil vs. $16.1 mil. Backplane and flex circuit sales were up 94%. There was also improvement in comparisons to 4Q numbers. SG&A improved by $400K. Current assets are up, current liabilities down. Same for total assets vs. total liabilities. I don't see any problems that an increase in capacity utilization won't cure. And you haven't cited any. How can you call a quarter "bad" when there is a loss in net income but an increase in the value of the company? You seem to see internal problems at SIGA. I'd like to know what they are. Please list them so we can call the company and check up on the problems.
