PART I
Item 1. BUSINESS
Background
Key Tronic Corporation was organized in 1969, as a Washington corporation that locally manufactured computer keyboards. The ability to design, build and deliver a quality product led us to become a leading independent manufacturer of keyboards for computers in the United States. Our fully integrated design, tooling, and automated manufacturing capabilities enabled us to rapidly respond to customers' needs for keyboards in production quantities worldwide. We supported our sales growth through the development and purchase of international manufacturing facilities. As the computer keyboard market matured with increasing competition from other international providers, we determined that our business could no longer solely rely on keyboard sales.
After assessing market conditions and our strengths and capabilities, we shifted our focus from keyboard manufacturing to contract manufacturing for a wide range of products. Our unique strategic attributes are based on our core strengths of innovative design and engineering expertise in electronics, mechanical engineering, sheet metal fabrication and stamping, and precision plastics combined with high-quality, low cost production, and assembly on an international basis while providing exceptional customer service. These strengths have made our company a strong competitor in the contract manufacturing market.
Our Industry and Strategy
The expansion of the contract manufacturing industry and our acquisitions have allowed us to continue to expand our customer base and the industries that we serve. The increase in new programs represents a growing portion of our revenue and a promising foundation for our future. In keeping with our long-term strategic objectives, we have been successfully building a more diversified customer portfolio, spanning a wider range of industries. We currently offer our customers the following services: integrated electronic and mechanical engineering, precision plastic molding, sheet metal fabrication, printed circuit board (PCB) and complete product assembly, component selection, sourcing and procurement, worldwide logistics, and new product testing and production all at competitive pricing due to our global footprint. We differentiate ourselves from others our size and larger in the contract manufacturing industry by providing vertical integration, a flexible and responsive approach to our customer's changing supply demand, and complete design engineering support.
We believe that we are well positioned in the contract manufacturing industry to continue the expansion of our customer base and achieve long-term growth. Our unique blend of multinational facilities, vertical integration, centralized management, and core strengths continue to support our growth and our customers' needs. We continue to focus on controlling operating expenses and leveraging the synergistic capabilities of our world-class facilities in the United States, Mexico, China and Vietnam. This international production capability provides our customers with the benefits of improved supply-chain management, reduced inventory, lower labor costs, lower transportation costs, and reduced product fulfillment time. Given our competitive advantages and the growing pressure for new potential customers to move forward with their outsourcing strategies, we feel that we are strongly positioned to win new business in coming periods and grow our revenue and profits.
4

The contract manufacturing industry is intensely competitive. Although our customer base is growing, we still have less than 1% of the potential global market and our revenue can fluctuate significantly due to reliance on a concentrated base of customers. We are planning for new customer growth in the coming quarters by seeking to secure new programs with new and existing customers, increase our worldwide manufacturing capacity, leverage further our design engineering capabilities and continue to improve our manufacturing and procurement processes and capabilities. Ongoing challenges that we face include but are not limited to the following: continuing to win programs from new and existing customers, balancing capital employed, production capacity and key personnel in support of new customer programs, improving operating efficiencies, controlling costs while developing competitive pricing strategies, and successfully transitioning new program wins to full production.
Customers and Marketing
We provide a mix of manufacturing services for outsourced Original Equipment Manufacturing (OEM) products. We provide the following services: product design, surface mount technologies (SMT) and pin through hole capability for printed circuit board assembly, tool making, precision plastic molding, sheet metal fabrication and painting, liquid injection molding, complex assembly, automated tape winding, prototype design and full product assembly.
Sales of the majority of our products have not historically been seasonal in nature, but may be seasonal in the future if there are changes in the types of products manufactured. Sales can, however, fluctuate significantly between quarters from changes in customers and customer demand due to the concentration of sales generated by our largest customers.
For the fiscal years 2021, 2020 and 2019, the five largest customers in each year accounted for 40%, 40% and 41% of combined total net sales, respectively. We continue to diversify our customer base by adding additional programs and customers. We expect net sales to our five largest customers as a percentage of total net sales to approximate current levels going forward.
The following table represents the only customer that represented 10% or more of total net sales during the last three fiscal years:
Percentage of Net Sales by Fiscal Year
2021 2020 2019
Customer A 24% 18% 17%
There can be no assurance that the Company's principal customers will continue to purchase products from the Company at current levels. Moreover, the Company typically does not enter into long-term volume purchase contracts with its customers, and the Company's customers have certain rights to extend or delay the shipment of their orders. The loss of one or more of the Company's major customers, or the reduction, delay or cancellation of orders from such customers, could materially and adversely affect the Company's business, operating results and financial condition.
We market our products and services primarily through our direct sales department which is comprised of strategically located field sales people and distributors. We also maintain relationships with several independent sales organizations to assist in marketing our product lines.
Manufacturing
We have continually made investments in developing and expanding a capital equipment base to achieve vertical integration and efficiencies in our manufacturing processes. We have invested significant capital into SMT for volume manufacturing of complex printed circuit board assemblies and in our metal shop providing precision metal stamping, fabricating, and finishing. We also design and develop tooling for injection molding and sheet metal fabrication and manufacture the majority of plastic and sheet metal parts used in the products we manufacture. Additionally, we have equipment to maintain a controlled clean environment for manufacturing processes that require a high level of precise control.
We use a variety of manual and automated assembly processes in our facilities, depending upon product complexity and degree of customization. Some examples of automated processes include component insertion, SMT, selective soldering, flexible robotic assembly, automated storage tape winding, computerized vision system quality inspection, laser turrets, automated switch and key top installation, robotic welding, automated powder coat application, and automated functional testing.
Our engineering expertise and automated manufacturing processes enable us to work closely with our customers during the design and prototype stages of production and to jointly increase productivity and reduce response time to the marketplace. We use computer-aided design techniques and software to assist in preparation of the tool design layout and component placement, to reduce tooling and production costs, improve component and product quality, and enhance turnaround time during product development.
5

We purchase materials and components for our products from many different suppliers, including both domestic and international sources. We develop close working relationships with our suppliers, many of whom have been supplying products to us for several years.
Research, Development, and Engineering
As part of our long-term strategy, we are committed to supporting our customers by providing research, development, and engineering services. We have seen an increase in the success of providing design support on existing and potential customers in differentiating ourselves. We believe these services allow us to facilitate in optimizing new product designs, and the production processes of our customers' programs.
Research, development, and engineering (RD&E) expenses consist principally of employee related costs, third party development costs, program materials costs, depreciation, and allocated information technology and facilities costs.
Competition
The market for the products and services we provide is highly competitive. There are numerous competitors in the contract manufacturing industry, many of which have substantially more resources and are more geographically diverse than we are. Some of our competitors have similar international production capabilities, large financial resources and some have substantially greater manufacturing, research and development, and marketing resources. There is also competition from the manufacturing operations of our current and potential customers, who are continually evaluating the merits of manufacturing their products internally versus the advantages of outsourcing. We believe that we can currently compete favorably in these areas primarily on the basis of our international footprint, responsiveness, creativity, vertical production capability, quality, and cost.
Trademarks
Our name and logo are federally registered trademarks, and we believe they are valuable assets of our business.
Employees
We consider our employees to be our primary strength and we make considerable efforts to maintain a well-qualified workforce. Our employee benefits include bonus programs involving periodic payments to all employees based on meeting quarterly or fiscal year performance targets. We regularly provide transportation, medical services, and meals to all of our employees in foreign locations. The Company also has defined contribution plans available to U.S. employees who have attained age 21 and provide group health, life, and disability insurance plans. We also maintain share based compensation plans and other long-term incentive plans for certain employees and outside directors.
As of July 3, 2021 we had 5,450 full-time employees compared to 5,741 on June 27, 2020, and 4,067 on June 29, 2019. Since we can have significant fluctuations in product demand, we seek to maintain flexibility in our workforce by utilizing skilled temporary labor in some of our manufacturing facilities in addition to full-time employees.
Backlog
On July 31, 2021 our order backlog was valued at approximately $303.2 million, compared to approximately $215.3 million on July 25, 2020. The amount of backlog is not necessarily indicative of future sales but can be indicative of trends in expected future sales revenue. Due to the relationships with our customers, we will occasionally allow orders to be canceled or rescheduled and as a result it is not a meaningful indicator of future financial results. If there are canceled or rescheduled orders, we typically negotiate fees to cover the costs we have incurred. Order backlog consists of purchase orders received for products expected to be shipped approximately within the next twelve months, although shipment dates are subject to change due to design modifications, customer forecast changes, or other customer requirements.
Foreign Markets
Information concerning net sales and long-lived assets (property, plant, and equipment) by geographic areas is set forth in Note 12, 'Enterprise-Wide Disclosures' of the consolidated financial statements of this Annual Report on Form 10-K and that information is incorporated herein.
Governmental Regulation
Our operations are subject to certain foreign, federal, state and local regulations relating to, among others, environmental, waste management, labor and health and safety matters. We have implemented processes and procedures to help ensure that our operations are in substantial compliance with all applicable regulations. However, material costs and liabilities may arise from these requirements or from new or modified requirements, which could have a material adverse effect on our business and results of operations.

Item 1A. RISK FACTORS
There are risks and uncertainties that could affect our business. These risks and uncertainties include but are not limited to, the risk factors described below, in Item 7A: 'Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk' and elsewhere in this Form 10-K.
RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES THAT MAY AFFECT FUTURE RESULTS
The following risks and uncertainties could affect our actual results and could cause results to differ materially from past results or those contemplated by our forward-looking statements. When used herein, the words 'expects,' 'believes,' 'anticipates' and other similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements.
RISKS RELATED TO OUR BUSINESS AND STRATEGY
Our operations may be subject to certain risks.
We manufacture product in facilities located in Mexico, China, Vietnam and the United States. These operations may be subject to a number of risks, including:
difficulties in staffing, turnover and managing onshore and offshore operations;
political and economic instability (including acts of terrorism, pandemics, civil unrest, forms of violence and outbreaks of war), which could impact our ability to ship, manufacture, and/or receive product;
unexpected changes in regulatory requirements and laws;
longer customer payment cycles and difficulty collecting accounts receivable;
export duties, import controls and trade barriers (including quotas);
governmental restrictions on the transfer of funds;
burdens of complying with a wide variety of foreign laws and labor practices; subject to trade wars and tariffs;
our locations may be impacted by hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, water shortages, tsunamis, floods, typhoons, fires, extreme weather conditions and other natural or man-made disasters; and
our locations may also be impacted by future temporary closures and labor constraints as a result of COVID-19.
Our operations in certain foreign locations receive favorable income tax treatment in the form of tax credits or other incentives. In the event that such tax incentives are not extended, are repealed, or we no longer qualify for such programs, our taxes may increase, which would reduce our net income.
Additionally, certain foreign jurisdictions restrict the amount of cash that can be transferred to the U.S or impose taxes and penalties on such transfers of cash. To the extent we have excess cash in foreign locations that could be used in, or is needed by, our operations in the United States, we may incur significant penalties and/or taxes to repatriate these funds.
We may experience fluctuations in quarterly results of operations.
Our quarterly operating results have varied in the past and may vary in the future due to a variety of factors, including adverse changes in the U.S. and global macroeconomic environment, volatility in overall demand for our customers' products, success of customers' programs, timing of new programs, new product introductions or technological advances by us, our customers and our competitors, and changes in pricing policies by us, our customers, our suppliers, and our competitors. Our customer base is diverse in the markets they serve, however, decreases in demand, particularly from customers in certain industries could affect future quarterly results. Additionally, our customers could be adversely impacted by illiquidity in the credit markets which could directly impact our operating results.
Component procurement, production schedules, personnel and other resource requirements are based on estimates of customer requirements. Occasionally, our customers may request accelerated production that can stress resources and reduce operating margins. Conversely, our customers may abruptly lower or cancel production which may lead to a sudden, unexpected increase in inventory or accounts receivable for which we may not be reimbursed even when under contract with customers. In addition, because many of our operating expenses are relatively fixed, a reduction in customer demand can harm our gross profit and operating results. The products which we manufacture for our customers have relatively short product lifecycles. Therefore, our business, operating results and financial condition are dependent in a significant way on our ability to obtain orders from new customers and new product programs from existing customers.
9

Operating results can also fluctuate if changes are made to significant estimates and assumptions. Significant estimates and assumptions include the allowance for doubtful receivables, provision for obsolete and non-saleable inventory, stock-based compensation, the valuation allowance on deferred tax assets, impairment of long-lived assets, long-term incentive compensation accrual, the provision for warranty costs, and the impact of hedging activities.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen extreme shifts in demand from our customer base. The possibility of future temporary closures and labor constraints, as well as the inability to predict customer demand, costs, and future supply chain disruptions during the rapidly changing COVID-19 environment can materially impact operating results.
We are exposed to general economic conditions, which could have a material adverse impact on our business, operating results and financial condition.
Adverse economic conditions and uncertainty in the global economy such as unstable global financial and credit markets, inflation, and recession can negatively impact our business. Unfavorable economic conditions could affect the demand for our customers' products by triggering a reduction in orders as well as a decline in forecasts which could adversely affect our sales in future periods. Additionally, the financial strength of our customers and suppliers and their ability to obtain and rely on credit financing may affect their ability to fulfill their obligations to us and have an adverse effect on our financial results.
Adverse macroeconomic conditions as a result of COVID-19 have and may continue to affect our business. The conditions affect the Company's ability to predict and plan for future supply chain disruptions, fluctuations in customer demand and costs, and the ability to operate as there is uncertainty over future temporary closures.
The majority of our sales come from a small number of customers and a decline in sales to any of these customers could adversely affect our business.
At present, our customer base is concentrated and could become more or less concentrated. There can be no assurance that our principal customers will continue to purchase products from us at current levels. Moreover, we typically do not enter into long-term volume purchase contracts with our customers, and our customers have certain rights to extend or delay the shipment of their orders. We, however, typically require that our customers contractually agree to buy back inventory purchased within specified lead times to build their products if not used.
The loss of one or more of our major customers, or the reduction, delay or cancellation of orders from such customers, due to economic conditions or other forces, could materially and adversely affect our business, operating results and financial condition. The contraction in demand from certain industries could impact our customer orders and have a negative impact on our operations over the foreseeable future. Additionally, if one or more of our customers were to become insolvent or otherwise unable to pay for the manufacturing services provided by us, our operating results and financial condition would be adversely affected.
We depend on a limited number of suppliers for certain components that are critical to our manufacturing processes. A shortage of these components or an increase in their price could interrupt our operations and result in a significant change in our results of operations.
We are dependent on many suppliers, including sole source suppliers, to provide key components and raw materials used in manufacturing customers' products. We have seen supply shortages in certain electronic components. In addition, our suppliers' facilities may also experience earthquakes, tsunamis and other natural disasters which may cause a shortage of components. This can result in longer lead times and the inability to meet our customers request for flexible production and extended shipment dates. If demand for components outpaces supply, capacity delays could affect future operations. Delays in deliveries from suppliers or the inability to obtain sufficient quantities of components and raw materials have and may continue to cause delays or reductions in shipment of products to our customers which could adversely affect our operating results and damage customer relationships.
Key Tronic continues to work closely with its employees and key suppliers to ascertain delays attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic. Delays in production and extended transit times of critical parts have and may continue to cause a shortage of components.
We operate in a highly competitive industry; if we are not able to compete effectively in the contract manufacturing industry, our business could be adversely affected.
Competitors may offer customers lower prices on certain high volume programs. This could result in price reductions, reduced margins and loss of market share, all of which would materially and adversely affect our business, operating results, and financial condition. If we were unable to provide comparable or better manufacturing services at a lower cost than our competitors, it could cause sales to decline. In addition, competitors can copy our non-proprietary designs and processes after we have invested in development of products for customers, thereby enabling such competitors to offer lower prices on such products due to savings in development costs.

Fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates could increase our operating costs.
We have manufacturing operations located in Mexico and China. A significant portion of our operations are denominated in the Mexican peso and the Chinese currency, the renminbi ('RMB'). Currency exchange rates fluctuate daily as a result of a number of factors, including changes in a country's political and economic policies. Volatility in the currencies of our entities and the United States dollar could seriously harm our business, operating results and financial condition. The primary impact of currency exchange fluctuations is on the cash, receivables, payables and expenses of our operating entities. As part of our hedging strategy, we currently use Mexican peso forward contracts to hedge foreign currency fluctuations for a portion of our Mexican peso denominated expenses. We currently do not hedge expenses denominated in RMB. Unexpected losses could occur from increases in the value of these currencies relative to the United States dollar.
As a result of COVID-19, significant currency exchange fluctuations can occur causing unexpected losses. Future temporary closures of production facilities in Mexico could also cause significant changes in our ability to qualify for hedge accounting treatment of our forward contracts to hedge foreign currency fluctuations. However, given the unprecedented nature of the pandemic the FASB staff believes that an entity may apply the exception in paragraph 815-30-40-4 for rare cases caused by extenuating circumstances that are related to the nature of the forecasted transaction and are outside the control or influence of an entity to delays in the timing of the forecasted transactions if those delays are related to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and are considered probable to still occur. In addition, the FASB staff believes that it would be acceptable for an entity to determine that missed forecasts related to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic need not be considered when determining whether it has exhibited a pattern of missing forecasts that would call into question its ability to accurately predict forecasted transactions and the propriety of using cash flow hedge accounting in the future for similar transactions.
Our success will continue to depend to a significant extent on our key personnel.
Our future success depends in large part on the continued service of our key technical, marketing and management personnel and on our ability to continue to attract and retain qualified production employees. There can be no assurance that we will be successful in attracting and retaining such personnel, particularly in our manufacturing locales that may be experiencing high demand for similar key personnel. The loss of key employees could have a material adverse effect on our business, operating results and financial condition.
Start-up costs and inefficiencies related to new or transferred programs can adversely affect our operating results and such costs may not be recoverable if such new programs or transferred programs are canceled or don't meet expected sales volumes.
Start-up costs, the management of labor and equipment resources in connection with the establishment of new programs and new customer relationships, and the need to obtain required resources in advance can adversely affect our gross margins and operating results. These factors are particularly evident in the ramping stages of new programs. These factors also affect our ability to efficiently use labor and equipment. We are currently managing a number of new programs. Consequently, our exposure to these factors has increased. In addition, if any of these new programs or new customer relationships were terminated, our operating results could be harmed, particularly in the short term. We may not be able to recoup these start-up costs or replace anticipated new program revenues.
Customers may change production timing and demand schedules which makes it difficult for us to schedule production and capital expenditures and to maximize the efficiency of our manufacturing capacity.
Changes in demand for customer products reduce our ability to accurately estimate the future requirements of our customers. This makes it difficult to schedule production and maximize utilization of our manufacturing capacity. We must determine the levels of business that we will seek and accept from customers, set production schedules, commit to procuring inventory, and allocate personnel and resources, based on our estimates of our customers' requirements. Customers can require sudden increases and decreases in production which can put added stress on resources and reduce margins. Sudden decreases in production can lead to excess inventory on hand which may or may not be reimbursed by our customers even when under contract.
Continued growth could further lead to capacity constraints. We may need to transfer production to other facilities, acquire new facilities, or outsource production which could negatively impact gross margin. The Company has been able to manage the arrival of components in an effort to control inventory levels of customers that have seen sharp decreases in demand, as a result of COVID-19.
11

Compliance or the failure to comply with current and future environmental and health laws or regulations could cause us significant expense.
We are subject to a variety of domestic and foreign environmental regulations relating to the use, storage, and disposal of materials used in our manufacturing processes. In addition, increasing governmental focus on climate change may result in new environmental regulations that may negatively affect us, our vendors or our customers. As a result, we may incur additional costs or obligations in complying with any new environmental and reporting requirements, as well as increased indirect costs resulting from our vendors or customers that get passed on to us.
If we fail to comply with any present or future regulations, we could be subject to future liabilities or the suspension of current manufacturing operations. In addition, such regulations could restrict our ability to expand our operations or could require us to acquire costly equipment, substitute materials, or incur other significant expenses to comply with government regulations.
If our manufacturing processes and services do not comply with applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, or if we manufacture products containing design or manufacturing defects, demand for our services may decline and we may be subject to liability claims.
We manufacture and design products to our customers' specifications, and, in some cases, our manufacturing processes and facilities may need to comply with applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. For example, medical devices that we manufacture or design, as well as the facilities and manufacturing processes that we use to produce them, are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration and non-U.S. counterparts of this agency. In addition, our customers' products and the manufacturing processes that we use to produce them often are highly complex. As a result, products that we manufacture may at times contain manufacturing or design defects, and our manufacturing processes may be subject to errors or not be in compliance with applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. Defects in the products we manufacture or design, whether caused by a design, manufacturing or component failure or error, or deficiencies in our manufacturing processes, may result in delayed shipments to customers or reduced or canceled customer orders. If these defects or deficiencies are significant, our business reputation may also be damaged. The failure of the products that we manufacture or our manufacturing processes and facilities to comply with applicable statutory and regulatory requirements may subject us to legal fines or penalties and, in some cases, require us to shut down or incur considerable expense to correct a manufacturing process or facility. Our customers are required to indemnify us against liability associated with designing products to meet their specifications. However, if our customers are responsible for the defects, they may not, or may not have resources to, assume responsibility for any costs or liabilities arising from these defects, which could expose us to additional liability claims.
If we do not manage our growth effectively, our profitability could decline.
Our business is experiencing growth which can place considerable additional demands upon our management team and our operational, financial and management information systems. Our ability to manage growth effectively requires us to continue to implement and improve these systems; avoid cost overruns; maintain customer, supplier and other favorable business relationships during possible transition periods; continue to develop the management skills of our managers and supervisors; and continue to train, motivate and manage our employees. Our failure to effectively manage growth could have a material adverse effect on our results of operations.
Energy price increases may negatively impact our results of operations.
Certain components that we use in our manufacturing process are petroleum-based. In addition, we, along with our suppliers and customers, rely on various energy sources in our transportation activities. While significant uncertainty currently exists about the future levels of energy prices, a significant increase is possible. Increased energy prices could cause an increase to our raw material costs and transportation costs. In addition, increased transportation costs related to certain suppliers and customers could be passed along to us. We may not be able to increase our product prices enough to offset these increased costs. In addition, any increase in our product prices may reduce our future customer orders and profitability.
TECHNOLOGY RISKS
Our operations are subject to cyberattacks that could have a material adverse effect on our business.
We are increasingly dependent on digital technologies and services to conduct our operations. We use these technologies for internal purposes, including data storage, processing and transmissions, as well as in our interactions with vendors and customers. Digital technologies and services are subject to the risk of cybersecurity incidents and some incidents can remain undetected for a period of time.
We routinely monitor our systems for cyber threats and have processes in place to detect and remediate vulnerabilities. Nevertheless, we have experienced attempted security breaches, such as phishing emails and other targeted attacks. We expect that our operations will continue to be subject to cyber threats, and any future cybersecurity incident could significantly disrupt our operations.
12

Cybersecurity incidents could also result in the misappropriation of proprietary or confidential information of the Company or that of its customers, employees, vendors or customers. We expect to incur costs in the future to mitigate against cybersecurity incidents as threats are expected to continue to become more persistent and sophisticated. If our systems for protecting against cybersecurity incidents prove not to be sufficient, we could be adversely affected by, among other things, loss of or damage to intellectual property, proprietary or confidential information, or employee, vendor or customer data; interruption of our business operations; and increased costs to prevent, respond to or mitigate cybersecurity incidents. These risks could harm our reputation and our relationships with employees, vendors and customers and may result in claims or enforcement actions and investigations against us.
Disruptions to our information systems, including losses of data or outages, could adversely affect our operations.
We rely on information technology networks and systems to process, transmit and store electronic information. In particular, we depend on our information technology infrastructure for a variety of functions, including worldwide financial reporting, inventory management, procurement, invoicing and email communications. Any of these systems may be susceptible to outages due to fire, floods, power loss, telecommunications failures, terrorist attacks and similar events. If we or our vendors are unable to prevent such outages, our operations could be disrupted.
If we are unable to maintain our technological and manufacturing process expertise, our business could be adversely affected.
The markets for our customers' products are characterized by rapidly changing technology, evolving industry standards, frequent new product introductions and short product life cycles. The introduction of products embodying new technologies or the emergence of new industry standards can render existing products obsolete or unmarketable. Our success will depend upon our customers' ability to enhance existing products and to develop and introduce, on a timely and cost-effective basis, new products that keep pace with technological developments and emerging industry standards and address evolving and increasingly sophisticated customer requirements. Failure of our customers to do so could substantially harm our customers' competitive positions. There can be no assurance that our customers will be successful in identifying, developing and marketing products that respond to technological change, emerging industry standards or evolving customer requirements.
RISKS RELATED TO CAPITAL AND FINANCING
Cash and cash equivalents are exposed to concentrations of credit risk.
We place our cash with high credit quality institutions. At times, such balances may be in excess of the federal depository insurance limit or may be on deposit at institutions which are not covered by insurance. If such institutions were to become insolvent during which time it held our cash and cash equivalents in excess of the insurance limit, it could be necessary to obtain other credit financing to operate our facilities.
Our ability to secure and maintain sufficient credit arrangements is key to our continued operations.
There is no assurance that we will be able to retain or renew our credit agreements in the future. In the event the business grows rapidly or there is uncertainty in the macroeconomic climate, additional financing resources could be necessary in the current or future fiscal years. There is no assurance that we will be able to obtain equity or debt financing at acceptable terms, or at all in the future. In addition, we have restrictive covenants with our financial institution which could impact how we manage our business. If we cannot meet our financial covenants, our borrowings could become immediately payable which could have a material adverse impact on our financial statements. For a summary of our banking arrangements, see Note 4 Long-Term Debt of the 'Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements.'
An adverse change in the interest rates for our borrowings could adversely affect our financial condition.
We are exposed to interest rate risk under our revolving line of credit and term loan. We currently hedge a portion of our term loan with an interest rate swap. We have not historically hedged the interest rate on our credit facility; therefore, unless we do so, significant changes in interest rates could adversely affect our results of operations. Refer to the discussion in note 4, 'Long-Term Debt' to the consolidated financial statements for further details of our debt obligations.
In addition, the U.K.'s Financial Conduct Authority, which regulates LIBOR, announced that it intends to phase out LIBOR by the end of 2021, though the ICE Benchmark Administration, the administrator of LIBOR, announced that it would consider ceasing the publication of the one-week and two-month U.S. dollar LIBOR settings at the end of 2021 and phase out the remaining U.S. dollar LIBOR settings by June 30, 2023. The transition from LIBOR to a new replacement benchmark is uncertain at this time and the consequences of such developments cannot be entirely predicted but could result in an increase in the cost of our borrowings, which could adversely affect our financial condition.
13

Our stock price is volatile.
Our stock price has and may continue to be subject to wide fluctuations and possible rapid increases or declines over a short time period. These fluctuations may be due to factors specific to us such as our stock's thinly traded nature, variations in quarterly operating results, changes in earnings estimates, or the Audit Committee's internal investigation, or to factors relating to the contract manufacturing industry or to the securities markets in general, which, in recent years, have experienced significant price fluctuations. These fluctuations often have been unrelated to the operating performance of the specific companies whose stocks are traded. In addition, holders of our common stock will suffer immediate dilution to the extent outstanding equity awards are exercised to purchase common stock.
RISKS RELATED TO OUR CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES AND THE INTERNAL INVESTIGATION
We identified a material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting and concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of December 26, 2020 and April 3, 2021. If we fail to properly remediate any future deficiencies or material weaknesses or to maintain proper and effective internal controls, our business and financial condition could be materially adversely impacted.
As described in Item 9a, 'Controls and Procedures,' of this Annual Report on Form 10-K, we concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of December 26, 2020 and April 3, 2021, due to the existence of a material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting. While we have undertaken remediation efforts to address the identified deficiencies and have concluded that the material weakness was remediated as of July 3, 2021, we cannot provide assurance that we will be able to conclude that our controls will be effective in the future. We also cannot assure you that additional significant deficiencies or material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting will not arise or be identified in the future. We intend to continue our control remediation activities. In doing so, we will continue to incur expenses and expend management time on compliance-related issues.
If additional deficiencies in our internal control over financial reporting are discovered or occur in the future, our consolidated financial statements may contain material misstatements and we could be required to restate our financial results. Moreover, because of the inherent limitations of any control system, material misstatements due to error or fraud may not be prevented or detected on a timely basis, or at all. If we are unable to provide reliable and timely financial reports in the future, our business and reputation may be further harmed. Restated financial statements and failures in internal controls may also cause us to fail to meet additional reporting obligations, negatively affect investor confidence in our management and the accuracy of our financial statements and disclosures, or result in adverse publicity and concerns from investors, any of which could have a negative effect on the price of our common stock, subject us to regulatory investigations and penalties or stockholder litigation, and materially adversely impact our business, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.
Matters relating to or arising from the subject of the Audit Committee's internal investigation, including expenses and diversion of personnel and resources, regulatory investigations, and proceedings and litigation matters, could have an adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition.
We have incurred, and may continue to incur, significant expenses related to legal, accounting and other professional services in connection with matters relating to or arising from the subject of the Audit Committee's internal investigation. As described in Item 9a, 'Controls and Procedures,' of this Annual Report on Form 10-K, we have taken and continue to take a number of steps in order to remediate identified deficiencies in our internal control over financial reporting and attempt to reduce the risk of future recurrence. The validation of the efficacy of these remedial steps will result in us incurring additional near term expenses, and to the extent these steps are not successful, we may incur significant additional time and expense.
In addition, we are cooperating with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the 'SEC') regarding matters related to the internal investigation. The completion of the internal investigation will not automatically resolve the SEC's inquiries. If the SEC or any other regulator were to commence legal action against us, we could be required to pay significant penalties and become subject to injunctions, cease and desist orders or other remedies. We can provide no assurances as to the outcome of any governmental inquiry or investigation. Further, we, our officers and members of our board of directors could be named as defendants in lawsuits asserting claims arising out of the subject matter of the Audit Committee's internal investigation. As a result of any legal proceedings and any related indemnification requirements to our officers and directors, we could be required to pay monetary damages that may be in excess of our insurance coverage or may have additional penalties or other remedies imposed against us or our officers and directors.
All of these expenses, the delay in timely filing our periodic reports and the diversion of the attention of management and other personnel that has occurred and is expected to continue, could adversely affect our business, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.
14

Due to inherent limitations, there can be no assurance that our system of disclosure and internal controls and procedures will be successful in preventing all errors, theft and fraud, or in informing management of all material information in a timely manner.
Management does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures and internal controls over financial reporting will prevent all errors or fraud. A control system is designed to give reasonable, but not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. In addition, any control system reflects resource constraints and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Inherent limitations of a control system may include: judgments in decision making may be faulty, breakdowns can occur simply because of error or mistake and controls can be circumvented by collusion or management override. Due to the inherent limitations in a cost-effective control system, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and may not be detected.
LEGAL AND ACCOUNTING RISKS
We are involved in various legal proceedings.
In the past, we have been notified of claims relating to various matters including contractual matters, intellectual property rights or other issues arising in the ordinary course of business. In the event of such a claim, we may be required to spend a significant amount of money to defend or otherwise address the claim. Any litigation or dispute resolution, even where a claim is without merit, could result in substantial costs and diversion of resources. Accordingly, the resolution or adjudication of such disputes, even those encountered in the ordinary course of business, could have a material effect on our business, consolidated financial conditions and results of operations.
Changes in securities laws and regulations will increase our costs and risk of noncompliance.
We are subject to additional requirements contained in the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (the Sarbanes-Oxley Act) and more recently the Dodd-Frank Act. The Sarbanes-Oxley and Dodd-Frank Acts required or will require changes in some of our corporate governance, securities disclosure and compliance practices. In response to the requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley and Dodd-Frank Acts, the SEC and NASDAQ promulgated new rules and additional rulemaking is expected in the future. Compliance with these new rules and future rules has increased and may increase further our legal, financial and accounting costs as well as a potential risk of noncompliance. Absent significant changes in related rules, which we cannot assure, we anticipate some level of increased costs related to these new regulations to continue indefinitely. We also expect these developments to make it more difficult and more expensive to obtain director and officer liability insurance, and we may be forced to accept reduced coverage or incur substantially higher costs to obtain coverage. Likewise, these developments may make it more difficult for us to attract and retain qualified members of our Board of Directors or qualified management personnel. Further, the costs associated with the compliance with and implementation of procedures under these and future laws and related rules could have a material impact on our results of operations. In addition, the costs associated with noncompliance with additional securities laws and regulations could also impact our business.
Changes in financial accounting standards may affect our reported financial condition or results of operations as well increase costs related to implementation of new standards and modifications to internal controls.
Our consolidated financial statements are prepared in conformity with accounting standards generally accepted in the United States, or U.S. GAAP. These principles are subject to amendments made primarily by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). A change in those policies can have a significant effect on our reported results and may affect our reporting of transactions which are completed before a change is announced. Changes to accounting rules or challenges to our interpretation or application of the rules by regulators may have a material adverse effect on our reported financial results or on the way we conduct business.
GENERAL RISKS
Our levels of insurance coverage may not be sufficient for potential damages, claims or losses.
We have various forms of business and liability insurance which we believe are appropriate based on the needs of companies in our industry. As a result, not all of our potential business risks or potential losses would be covered by our insurance policies. If we sustain a significant claim or loss which is not covered by insurance, our net income could be negatively impacted.
15

We may encounter complications with acquisitions, which could potentially harm our business.
Any current or future acquisitions may require additional equity financing, which could be dilutive to our existing shareholders, or additional debt financing, which could potentially affect our credit ratings. Any downgrades in our credit ratings associated with an acquisition could adversely affect our ability to borrow by resulting in more restrictive borrowing terms. To integrate acquired businesses, we must implement our management information systems, operating systems and internal controls, and assimilate and manage the personnel of the acquired operations. The integration of acquired businesses may be further complicated by difficulties managing operations in geographically dispersed locations. The integration of acquired businesses may not be successful and could result in disruption by diverting management's attention from the core business. In addition, the integration of acquired businesses may require that we incur significant restructuring charges or other increases in our expenses and working capital requirements, which reduce our return on invested capital.
Acquisitions may involve numerous other risks and challenges including but not limited to: potential loss of key employees and customers of the acquired companies; the potential for deficiencies in internal controls at acquired companies; lack of experience operating in the geographic market or industry sector of the acquired business; constraints on available liquidity, and exposure to unanticipated liabilities of acquired companies. These and other factors could harm our ability to achieve anticipated levels of profitability at acquired operations or realize other anticipated benefits of an acquisition, and could adversely affect our consolidated business and operating results.

Item 7: MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Overview
Key Tronic is a leading contract manufacturer offering value-added design and manufacturing services from its facilities in the United States, Mexico, China and Vietnam. We provide full engineering services, materials management, worldwide manufacturing facilities, assembly services, in-house testing, worldwide distribution and unparalleled customer service. It's customers include some of the world's leading original equipment manufacturers. Our combined capabilities and vertical integration are proving to be a desirable offering to our expanded customer base.
Our international production capability provides our customers with benefits of improved supply-chain management, reduced inventories, lower transportation costs, and reduced product fulfillment time. We continue to make investments in all of our operating facilities to give us the production capacity, capabilities and logistical advantages to continue to win new business. The following information should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements included herein and with Part II Item 1A, Risk Factors included as part of this filing.
Our mission is to provide our customers with superior manufacturing and engineering services at the lowest total cost for the highest quality products, and create long-term mutually beneficial business relationships by employing our 'Trust, Commitment, Results' philosophy.
Executive Summary
During the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2021, we won new programs involving consumer products, exercise equipment, and residential building products.
We reported net sales of $518.7 million for fiscal year 2021, the highest annual revenue in the Company's fifty-two year history, and up 15% from $449.5 million for fiscal year 2020. While demand has remained strong from both new and existing customers, revenue for the fourth quarter and for the full year of fiscal year 2021 continued to be significantly constrained by issues related to the worldwide pandemic, the supply chain, and transportation and logistics.
Moving into fiscal 2022, the COVID-19 crisis, component shortages and logistic delays continue to present multiple business challenges, but we continue to see the favorable trend of contract manufacturing returning to North America. With our recent investments in new capacity, we're increasingly well-prepared for long term growth.
For the first quarter of fiscal year 2022, the Company expects to report revenue in the range of $125 million to $135 million. Despite growing customer demand and backlog, we expect that delays in the supply of key components for the Company's business will continue to significantly limit production and adversely impact operating efficiencies.
We have continued to diversify our customer base by adding additional programs and customers. Our current customer relationships involve a variety of products, including consumer electronics, electronic storage devices, plastics, household products, gaming devices, specialty printers, telecommunications, industrial equipment, military supplies, computer accessories, medical, educational, irrigation, automotive, transportation management, robotics, RFID, power supply, off-road vehicle equipment, fitness equipment, HVAC controls, consumer products, home building products, material handling systems, lighting equipment, consumer security products, smart security, architectural LED lighting, power meters and smart grid, wireless power solutions, sanitizer dispensing, automotive controllers, oil and gas drilling, wireless security and personal healthcare protective equipment.
Gross profit as a percent of net sales was 8.1 percent in fiscal year 2021 compared to 7.8 percent for the prior fiscal year. The increase in gross profit as a percentage of net sales was primarily related to streamlining efforts in the Company's Juarez facilities partially offset by supply chain constraints, a temporary four-day closure of our Mexico facilities during a late winter storm that caused power disruptions in the region, and continued but lessening expenses related to COVID-19. The level of gross margin is impacted by product mix, timing of the startup of new programs, facility utilization, and pricing within the electronics industry and material costs, which can fluctuate significantly from quarter to quarter and year to year.
Operating income as a percentage of net sales for fiscal year 2021 was 1.8 percent compared to 1.5 percent for fiscal year 2020. The increase in operating income as a percentage of net sales was primarily driven by the increase in gross profit.
Net income for fiscal year 2021 was $4.3 million or $0.39 per share, as compared to $4.8 million or $0.44 per share for fiscal year 2020. Earnings for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 continued to be adversely impacted by supply chain and transportation and logistics issues causing both factory downtime and overtime expenses. Earnings for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 were also constrained by legal and other professional service expenses related to the previously disclosed internal investigation of approximately $1.0 million during quarter, and we expect some additional expenses to occur prospectively. Additionally, the Company recorded approximately $0.5 million in non-cash tax expense related to expired stock appreciation rights during the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2021.
21

We maintained a strong balance sheet with a current ratio of 2.4 and a debt to equity ratio of 0.81. Total cash used in operating activities as defined on our cash flow statement was $15.1 million during fiscal year 2021. We maintained sufficient liquidity for our expected future operations. We believe cash flow from operations, our borrowing capacity, and equipment financing should provide adequate capital for planned growth over the long term.

Net Sales
The increase in net sales of $69.2 million from prior year period was primarily driven by an increase in new program wins and demand for current programs. However, partially offsetting the increase in revenue during fiscal year 2021, the Company's revenue was constrained by tightening worldwide supply chain and transportation and logistics issues which delayed the arrival of key components, causing factory downtime.
The following table shows the revenue by industry sectors as a percentage of revenue for fiscal years 2021 and 2020:
Fiscal Year Ended

We provide services to customers in a number of industries and produce a variety of products for our customers in each industry. Key Tronic does not target any particular industry, but rather seeks to find programs that strategically fit our vertical manufacturing capabilities. As we continue to diversify our customer base and win new customers, we expect to continue to see a change in the industry concentrations of our revenue.
Sales to foreign locations represented 28.2 percent and 24.6 percent of our total net sales in fiscal years 2021 and 2020, respectively.
22

Cost of Sales
Total cost of sales as a percentage of net sales was 91.9 percent and 92.2 percent in fiscal years 2021 and 2020, respectively.
We provide a reserve for obsolete and non-saleable inventories based on specific identification of inventory against current demand and recent usage. We also consider our customers' ability to pay for inventory whether or not there is a lead-time assurance agreement for a specific program. The amounts charged to expense for these inventories were approximately $753,000 and $136,000 in fiscal years 2021 and 2020, respectively.
We provide warranties on certain products we sell and estimate warranty costs based on historical experience and anticipated product returns. Warranty expense is related to workmanship claims on keyboards and other products. The amounts charged to expense are determined based on an estimate of warranty exposure. The net warranty expense was approximately $145,000 and $121,000 in fiscal years 2021 and 2020, respectively.
Gross Profit
Gross profit as a percentage of net sales was 8.1 percent and 7.8 percent in fiscal years 2021, and 2020, respectively. The 0.3 percentage point increase in gross profit as a percentage of net sales during fiscal year 2021 as compared to fiscal year 2020 is primarily related to streamlining efforts in the Company's Juarez facilities and material cost reductions, partially offset by supply chain constraints, a temporary four-day closure of our Mexico facilities during a late winter storm that caused power disruptions in the region, and continued but lessening expenses related to COVID-19.
Changes in gross profit margins reflect the impact of a number of factors that can vary from period to period, including product mix, start-up costs and efficiencies associated with new programs, product life cycles, sales volumes, capacity utilization of our resources, management of inventories, component pricing and shortages, end market demand for customers' products, fluctuations in and timing of customer orders, and competition within the contract manufacturing industry. These and other factors can cause variations in operating results. There can be no assurance that gross margins will not decrease in future periods.

We took early pay discounts to suppliers that totaled approximately $32,000 and $0.1 million in fiscal years 2021 and 2020, respectively. Early pay discounts will fluctuate based on our liquidity and changes in the discounts and terms offered by our suppliers.
Research, Development and Engineering
Research, development and engineering expenses (RD&E) consists principally of employee related costs, third party development costs, program materials, depreciation and allocated information technology and facilities costs. Total RD&E expenses were $9.8 million in fiscal year 2021 and $7.4 million in fiscal year 2020, respectively. The Company invested more in its RD&E in fiscal year 2021 for development and design of customer programs. The Company anticipates higher RD&E costs in the future as the Company continues to offer these services. Total RD&E expenses as a percent of net sales was 1.9 percent in fiscal year 2021 and 1.6 in fiscal year 2020.
Selling, General and Administrative
Selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A) consist principally of salaries and benefits, advertising and marketing programs, sales commissions, travel expenses, provision for doubtful accounts, facilities costs, and professional services. Total SG&A expenses were $22.7 million and $21.0 million in fiscal years 2021 and 2020, respectively. Total SG&A expenses as a percent of net sales were 4.4 percent and 4.7 percent in fiscal years 2021 and 2020, respectively. This 0.3 percentage point decrease in SG&A as a percentage of net sales is primarily related to an increase in sales year over year and a decrease in travel related expenses due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
23

Interest Expense
We had net interest expense of $3.6 million and $2.5 million in fiscal years 2021 and 2020, respectively. The increase in interest expense is primarily related to an increase in the average balance outstanding on our line of credit and increased interest rates.
Income Tax Benefit
We had an income tax expense of approximately $1.6 million during fiscal year 2021 and an income tax benefit of approximately $(0.4) million during fiscal year 2020. The income tax expense (benefit) recognized during both fiscal years 2021 and 2020 was primarily a function of U.S. and foreign taxes recognized at statutory rates, the net benefit associated with federal research and development tax credits, the non-cash tax impact of expired stock appreciation rights in fiscal year 2021, and the recognition of previously unrecognized tax benefits for federal research and development tax credits in fiscal year 2020.
We continually review our requirements for liquidity domestically to fund current operations, revenue growth and to look for potential future acquisitions. We anticipate repatriating a portion of our unremitted foreign earnings. The estimated taxes associated with these expected repatriations are included in the income tax calculation. For further information on taxes please review footnote 6 of the 'Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements.'
International Subsidiaries
We offer customers a complete global manufacturing solution. Our facilities provide our customers the opportunity to have their products manufactured in the facility that best serves specific cost, product manufacturing and distribution needs. The locations of active foreign subsidiaries are as follows:
Key Tronic Juarez, SA de CV owns five facilities and leases three facilities in Juarez, Mexico. These facilities include an SMT facility, an assembly and molding facility, a sheet metal fabrication facility, and assembly and warehouse facilities. This subsidiary is primarily used to support our U.S. operations.
Key Tronic Computer Peripherals (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. leases two facilities with SMT, assembly, global purchasing and warehouse capabilities in Shanghai, China, which began operations in 1999. Its primary function is to provide contract manufacturing services for export.
Key Tronic Vietnam leases one facility in Da Nang, Vietnam. This facility includes SMT, assembly, and warehouse capabilities. Its primary function is to provide contract manufacturing services for export.
Foreign sales (based on shipping instructions) from our worldwide operations, including domestic exports, were $146.5 million and $110.7 million in fiscal years 2021 and 2020, respectively. Products and manufacturing services provided by our subsidiary operations are often shipped to customers directly by the parent company.
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Comparison of the Fiscal Year Ended June 27, 2020 with the Fiscal Year Ended June 29, 2019
To review the results of operations comparison of the fiscal year ended June 27, 2020 with the fiscal year ended June 29, 2019, please refer to our Form 10-K filed September 11, 2020 with the Securities and Exchange Commission or follow the link below.
Capital Resources and Liquidity
Operating Cash Flow
Net cash used in operating activities for fiscal year 2021 was $15.1 million compared to net cash used in operating activities of $31.0 million and net cash provided by operating activities of $0.9 million in fiscal years 2020 and 2019, respectively.
The $15.1 million of net cash used in operating activities during fiscal year 2021 is primarily related to $4.3 million of net income adjusted for $6.9 million of depreciation and amortization, $24.3 million increase in accounts receivable, a $23.1 million increase in inventory, a $1.0 million increase in contract assets, a $2.3 million decrease in other assets, partially offset by a $12.6 million increase in accounts payable, an $5.6 million increase in other liabilities, and a $1.0 million increase in accrued compensation and vacation.
The $31.0 million of net cash used in operating activities during fiscal year 2020 was primarily related to $4.8 million of net income adjusted for $5.6 million of depreciation and amortization, $28.3 million increase in accounts receivable, a $14.7 million increase in inventory, a $7.7 million increase in other assets, a $1.6 million increase in contract assets, partially offset by a $6.6 million increase in accounts payable and a $3.7 million increase in accrued compensation and vacation.
24

The $0.9 million of net cash provided by operating activities during fiscal year 2019 was primarily related to $8.0 million of net loss, $12.4 million impairment of goodwill and intangibles, $7.3 million of depreciation and amortization, $6.7 million of cash received from arbitration settlement, a $3.3 million decrease in accounts receivable, partially offset by a $10.3 million increase in contract assets, a $4.5 million increase in other assets, a $2.6 million increase in accounts payable and a $1.4 million decrease in inventory.
Accounts receivable fluctuates based on the timing of shipments, terms offered and collections. In addition, accounts receivable will fluctuate based upon the amount of accounts receivable sold under our Trade Accounts Receivable Purchase Program. The Company did not sell any accounts receivables during the twelve months ended July 3, 2021. During fiscal years 2020 and 2019, we factored receivables of $41.4 million and $81.0 million, respectively, from accounts receivable sold to financial institutions, which are not included on our Consolidated Balance Sheets. The Company no longer had factored receivables at year end fiscal 2021 or 2020. We purchase inventory based on customer forecasts and orders, and when those forecasts and orders change, the amount of inventory may also fluctuate. Accounts payable fluctuates with changes in inventory levels, volume of inventory purchases, negotiated supplier terms, and taking advantage of early pay discounts.
Investing Cash Flow
Cash flows used in investing activities were $10.6 million for fiscal year 2021. Cash flows used in investing activities were $3.6 million and $1.9 million in fiscal year 2020 and 2019, respectively. Our primary use of cash in investing activities during fiscal years 2021, 2020 and 2019, was purchasing equipment to support increased production levels for new programs. During fiscal years 2020 and 2019, our primary source of cash provided by investing activities came from receipts of the deferred purchase price on factored receivables.
Operating and finance leases under accounting guidance that became effective in fiscal year 2020, and capital leases prior to that date are often utilized when potential technical obsolescence and funding requirement advantages outweigh the benefits of equipment ownership. Capital expenditures and periodic lease payments are expected to be financed with internally generated funds and available borrowing capacities. During fiscal years 2021, 2020 and 2019, we did not receive any cash resulting from the sale and leaseback of equipment under operating leases.
Financing Cash Flow
Cash flows provided by financing activities were $28.6 million, $34.5 million, and $1.2 million in fiscal years 2021, 2020, and 2019. Our primary financing activities during fiscal year 2021, were repayments on our term loans of $11.7 million as well as borrowings and repayments under our revolving line of credit facility. Our primary financing activities during fiscal year 2020 was repayments on our term loans of $7.1 million as well as borrowings and repayments under our revolving line of credit facility. Our primary financing activities during fiscal year 2019 was repayments on our term loans of $5.9 million as well as borrowings and repayments under our revolving line of credit facility.
As of July 3, 2021, the Company had an outstanding balance on the line of credit of $90.9 million. We had availability to borrow an additional $2.1 million under the asset-based revolving credit facility and we were in compliance with our loan covenants. Our cash requirements are affected by the level of current operations and new programs. We believe that projected cash from operations, funds available under the asset-based revolving credit facility and fixed asset financing will be sufficient to meet our working and fixed capital requirements for the foreseeable future.
As of July 3, 2021, we had approximately $2.0 million of cash held by foreign subsidiaries. Under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, future cash repatriations from these foreign subsidiaries are no longer subject to U.S. income taxes, but may be subject to foreign withholding taxes. See additional discussion in Footnote 6, Income Taxes. The total amount of foreign withholding taxes required to be paid for the amount of foreign subsidiary cash on hand as of July 3, 2021, would approximate $47,000. The Company also has approximately $23.6 million of foreign earnings that have not been repatriated to the U.S. Of that amount, the Company estimates that $7.5 million is to be repatriated in the future, requiring foreign withholding taxes of $0.8 million that is currently accrued in our deferred tax liabilities. The remaining $16.1 million is considered to be permanently reinvested in Mexico, China and Vietnam. If these amounts were required to be repatriated, we estimate it would create an additional $0.8 million in foreign withholding taxes payable.
25

Contractual Obligations and Commitments
In the normal course of business, we enter into contracts which obligate us to make payments in the future. The table below sets forth our significant future obligations by fiscal year:
Payments Due by Fiscal Year (in thousands)
Total 2022 2023 2024 2025 2026 Thereafter
Term loans (1)
$ 10,049 $ 2,143 $ 2,190 $ 2,239 $ 2,290 $ 1,187 $ -
Bank of America revolving loan (2)
$ 90,886 $ - $ - $ - $ - $ 90,886 $ -

Purchase orders (4)
$ 116,067
(1)The terms of the Bank of America term loans are discussed in the consolidated financial statements at Note 4, 'Long-Term Debt.' The equipment financing facility relating to the Company's existing U.S. manufacturing equipment is payable in equal monthly payments of approximately $94,000 which commenced on September 14, 2020 and will continue through the maturity of the equipment financing facility on August 14, 2025. The equipment financing facility relating to the Company's existing Mexico manufacturing equipment is payable in equal monthly payments of approximately $100,000 which commenced on May 24, 2021 and will continue through the maturity of the equipment term loan on April 24, 2026.
(2)The terms of the Bank of America asset-based revolving credit facility are discussed in the consolidated financial statements at Note 4, 'Long-Term Debt.' As of July 3, 2021, we were in compliance with our loan covenants.
(3)We maintain vertically integrated manufacturing operations in the United States, Mexico, China and Vietnam. We lease some of our administrative and manufacturing facilities and equipment. A complete discussion of properties can be found in Part 1, Item 2 at 'Properties.' Leases have proven to be an acceptable method for us to acquire new or replacement equipment and to maintain facilities with a minimum impact on our short term cash flows for operations. In addition, such operations are heavily dependent upon technically superior manufacturing equipment including molding machines in various tonnages, Surface Mount Technology (SMT) lines, sheet metal fabrication and stamping machines, clean rooms, and automated insertion, and test equipment for the various products we are capable of producing.
(4)As of July 3, 2021, we had open purchase order commitments for materials and other supplies of approximately $116.1 million. Included in the open purchase orders are various blanket orders for annual requirements. Actual needs under these blanket purchase orders fluctuate with our manufacturing levels and as such cannot be broken out between fiscal years. In addition, we have contracts with many of our customers that minimize our exposure to losses for material purchased within lead-times necessary to meet customer forecasts. Purchase orders generally can be cancelled without penalty within specified ranges that are determined in negotiations with our suppliers. These agreements depend in part on the type of materials purchased as well as the circumstances surrounding any requested cancellations.
In addition to the cash requirements presented above, we have various other accruals which are not included in the table above. For example, we owe our suppliers approximately $92.8 million for accounts payable and shipments in transit at the end of the fiscal year. We generally pay our suppliers in a range from 30 to 120 days depending on terms offered. These payments are financed by operating cash flows and our revolving line of credit.
We believe that cash flows generated from operations, factoring, leasing facilities, and funds available under the revolving credit facility will satisfy cash requirements for a period in excess of 12 months and into the foreseeable future.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
Preparation of our consolidated financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amount of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses. Note 1 to our consolidated financial statements describes the significant accounting policies used in the preparation of our consolidated financial statements. Management believes the most complex and sensitive judgments, because of their significance to our consolidated financial statements, result primarily from the need to make estimates about effects of matters that are inherently uncertain. The most significant areas involving management judgments are described below. Actual results in these areas could differ from management's estimates.
Revenue
The Company specializes in services ranging from product manufacturing to engineering and tooling services. The first step in its process for revenue recognition is to identify the contract with a customer. A contract is defined as an agreement between two or more parties that creates enforceable rights and obligations. A contract can be written, oral, or implied. The Company generally enters into manufacturing service agreements ('MSA') with its customers that outlines the terms of the business relationship between the customer and the Company. This includes matters such as warranty, indemnification, transfer of title and risk of loss, liability for excess and obsolete inventory, pricing, payment terms, etc. The Company will also bid on a program-by-program basis for customers in which an executed MSA may not be in place. In these instances, as well as when we have an MSA in place, we receive customer purchase orders for specific quantities and timing of products. As a result, the Company considers its contract with a customer to be the combination of the MSA and the purchase order. The transaction price is fixed and set forth in each purchase order. In the Company's normal course of business, there are no variable pricing components, or material amounts refunded to customers in the form of refunds or rebates.
The Company assesses whether control of the product or services promised under the contract is transferred to the customer at a point in time (shipment) or over time (as we manufacture the product). The Company is first required to evaluate whether its contracts meet the criteria for 'over-time' or 'point-in-time' recognition. The Company has determined that for the majority of its contracts the Company is manufacturing products for which there is no alternative use due to the unique nature of the customer-specific product, IP and other contract restrictions. Further, the Company has an enforceable right to payment including a reasonable profit for performance completed to date with respect to these contracts. As a result, revenue is recognized under these contracts 'over-time' based on the input cost-to-cost method as it better depicts the transfer of control. This input method is based on the ratio of costs incurred to date as compared to the total estimated costs at completion of the performance obligation. For all other contracts that do not meet these criteria, such as manufacturing contracts for which the terms do not provide an enforceable right to payment for performance completed to date, the Company recognizes revenue when it has transferred control of the related manufactured products which generally occurs upon shipment to the customer. Revenue from engineering services is recognized over time as the services are performed.
Inactive, Obsolete, and Surplus Inventory Reserve
Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Inventory valuation is determined using the first-in, first-out (FIFO) method. We reserve for inventories that we deem inactive, obsolete or surplus. This reserve is calculated based upon the demand for the products that we produce. Demand is determined by expected sales, customer purchase orders, or customer forecasts. If expected sales do not materialize, then we would have inventory in excess of our reserves and would have to charge the excess against future earnings. In the case where we have purchased material based upon a customer's forecast or purchase orders, we are usually covered by lead-time assurance agreements or purchase orders with each customer. These contracts state that the financial liability for material purchased within agreed upon lead-time and based upon the customer's forecasts, lies with the customer. If we purchase material outside the lead-time assurance agreement and the customer's forecasts do not materialize or if we have no lead-time assurance agreement for a specific program, we would have the financial liability and may have to charge inactive, obsolete or surplus inventory against earnings. We also reserve for inventory related to specific customers covered by lead-time assurance agreements when those customers are experiencing financial difficulties or reimbursement is not reasonably assured.
Allowance for Doubtful Accounts
We value our accounts receivable net of an allowance for doubtful accounts. As of July 3, 2021, the allowance for doubtful accounts was approximately $275,000. As of June 27, 2020, the allowance for doubtful accounts was approximately $609,000. This allowance is based on estimates of the portion of accounts receivable that may not be collected in the future. The estimates used are based primarily on specific identification of potentially uncollectible accounts. Such accounts are identified using publicly available information in conjunction with evaluations of current payment activity. However, if any of our customers were to develop unexpected and immediate financial problems that would prevent payment of open invoices, we could incur additional and possibly material expenses that would negatively impact earnings.
27

Accrued Warranty
An accrual is made for expected warranty costs, with the related expense recognized in cost of goods sold. We review the adequacy of this accrual quarterly based on historical analysis and anticipated product returns and rework costs. Our warranty period for keyboards is generally longer than that for other products. We only warrant materials and workmanship on products, and we do not warrant design defects for customers.
Income Taxes
Income tax expense includes U.S. and international income taxes and a provisional estimate for U.S. taxes on undistributed earnings of foreign subsidiaries. We do not record foreign withholding taxes on undistributed earnings of international subsidiaries that are deemed to be permanently reinvested. Certain income and expenses are not reported in tax returns and financial statements in the same year. The tax effect of such temporary differences is reported as deferred income taxes. The deferred income taxes are classified as long-term assets or liabilities. The most significant areas involving management judgments include deferred income tax assets and liabilities, uncertain tax positions, and research and development tax credits. Our estimates of the realization of the deferred tax assets related to our tax credits are based upon our estimates of future taxable income which may change.
Stock-Based Compensation
Stock-based compensation is accounted for according to Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 718, Compensation-Stock Compensation. ASC 718 requires us to expense the fair value of employee stock options, stock appreciation rights and other forms of stock-based compensation. Under the fair value recognition provisions of ASC 718, share-based compensation cost is estimated at the grant date based upon the fair value of the award and is recognized as expense ratably over the requisite service period of the award (generally the vesting period). Determining the appropriate fair value model and calculating the fair value of share-based awards requires judgment, including estimating the expected life of the share-based award, the expected stock price volatility over the expected life of the share-based award and forfeitures.
To determine the fair value of stock based awards on the date of grant we use the Black-Scholes option-pricing model. Inherent in this model are assumptions related to expected stock price volatility, option life, risk-free interest rate and dividend yield. The risk-free interest rate is a less-subjective assumption as it is based on factual data derived from public sources. We use a dividend yield of zero as we have never paid cash dividends and have no intention to pay cash dividends in the foreseeable future. The expected stock price volatility and option life assumptions require a greater level of judgment. Our expected stock-price volatility assumption is based upon the historical volatility of our stock which is obtained from public data sources. The expected life represents the weighted average period of time that share-based awards are expected to be outstanding, giving consideration to vesting schedules and historical exercise patterns. We determine the expected life assumption based upon the exercise and post-vesting behavior that has been exhibited historically, adjusted for specific factors that may influence future exercise patterns. If expected volatility or expected life were to increase, that would result in an increase in the fair value of our stock options which would result in higher compensation charges, while a decrease in volatility or the expected life would result in a lower fair value of our stock option awards resulting in lower compensation charges.
We estimate forfeitures for all of our awards based upon historical experience of stock-based pre-vesting forfeitures. We believe that our estimates are based upon outcomes that are reasonably likely to occur. If actual forfeitures are higher than our estimates it would result in lower compensation expense and to the extent the actual forfeitures are lower than our estimate we would record higher compensation expense.
Impairment of Long-Lived Assets
Long-lived assets, such as property, plant, and equipment are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. The recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to the estimated undiscounted future cash flows expected to be generated by the asset. If the carrying amount of an asset exceeds its estimated undiscounted future cash flows, an impairment charge would be recognized in the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset exceeds the fair value of the asset.
Derivatives and Hedging Activity
Derivatives are recognized on the balance sheet at their estimated fair value. On the date a derivative contract is entered into, the Company designates the derivative as a hedge of a forecasted transaction or of the variability of cash flows to be received or paid related to a recognized asset or liability (a 'cash flow' hedge). The Company does not enter into derivatives for speculative purposes. Changes in the fair value of a derivative that qualifies as a cash flow hedge are recorded in 'Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income,' until earnings are affected by the variability of cash flows. See Note 10 of the Company's consolidated financial statements for additional information.
28

Long-Term Incentive Compensation Accrual
Long-term incentive compensation is recognized as expense ratably over the requisite service period of the award which is generally three years. The Board of Directors approve target performance measures for the three year period for each of the Company's officers and non-employee Directors. Performance measures are based on a combination of sales growth targets and return on invested capital targets. No cash awards will be made to participants if actual Company performance does not exceed the minimum target performance measures. The calculation used to determine the necessary accrual uses a combination of actual results and projected results. We believe that our estimates are based upon outcomes that are reasonably likely to occur. These estimates and assumptions are based on historical results as well as future expectations. Actual results could vary from our estimates and assumptions.
Impairment of Goodwill
In accordance with ASC 350, Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets, goodwill is not amortized but is required to be reviewed for impairment at least annually or when events or circumstances indicate that carrying value may exceed fair value. The Company is permitted the option to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether the existence of events and circumstances indicates that it is more likely than not that the fair value of any reporting unit is less than its corresponding carrying value. If, after assessing the totality of events and circumstances, the Company concludes that it is not more likely than not that the fair value of any reporting unit is less than its corresponding carrying value then the Company is not required to take further action. However, if the Company concludes otherwise, then it is required to perform a quantitative impairment test, including computing the fair value of the reporting unit and comparing that value to its carrying value. The Company utilized a weighting of the income approach and a market approach in the impairment test. We also considered valuation factors including the Company's market capitalization, future discounted cash flows and an estimated control premium based upon a review of comparable market transactions. Our consideration of discounted future cash flows included assumptions regarding growth rates and margins based on our historical trends. In addition, we applied a market discount rate calculated based upon an analysis of companies similar in size. If our future cash flows do not meet our projections or there is an event that impacts our market capitalization, the assumptions used in our goodwill analysis could be negatively impacted.
Goodwill impairment would be measured as the amount by which a reporting unit's carrying value exceeds its fair value, not to exceed the carrying value of goodwill. In the event that goodwill is impaired, an impairment charge to earnings would become necessary. The Company also has the option to bypass the qualitative assessment for goodwill in any period and proceed directly to performing the quantitative impairment test. Refer to footnote 14 for discussion of the write-off of goodwill and other intangibles that occurred during fiscal year 2019, as a result of certain triggering events being present.

Item 7A: QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK
Interest Rate Risk
We are subject to the risk of fluctuating interest rates in the normal course of business. Our major market risk relates to our secured debt. Our asset-based senior secured revolving credit facility, and equipment financing facility are secured by substantially all of our assets. The interest rates applicable to our asset-based senior secured revolving credit facility fluctuate with LIBOR rates. There was outstanding $90.9 million in borrowings under our asset-based senior secured revolving credit facility and $10.0 million outstanding on our equipment financing facilities as of July 3, 2021. See 'Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations - Capital Resources and Liquidity' and Note 4 - 'Long-Term Debt' to the Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information regarding our revolving credit facility and term loans.
Foreign Currency Exchange Risk
A significant portion of our operations are in foreign locations. As a result, transactions occur in currencies other than the U.S. dollar. Exchange rate fluctuations among other currencies used by us would directly or indirectly affect our financial results. We currently use Mexican peso forward contracts to hedge foreign currency fluctuations for a portion of our Mexican peso denominated expenses. There was $10.6 million of foreign currency forward contracts outstanding as of July 3, 2021. The fair value of these contracts was approximately $3.6 million. See Note 10 - 'Derivative Financial Instruments' to the Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information regarding our derivative instruments.

Item 8:
FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND SUPPLEMENTARY DATA
Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

Shareholders and Board of Directors
Key Tronic Corporation
Spokane Valley, Washington
Opinion on the Consolidated Financial Statements
We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Key Tronic Corporation (the 'Company') as of July 3, 2021 and June 27, 2020, the related consolidated statements of income (loss), comprehensive income (loss), shareholders' equity, and cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended July 3, 2021, and the related notes and schedule (collectively referred to as the 'consolidated financial statements'). In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company at July 3, 2021 and June 27, 2020, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended July 3, 2021, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
We also have audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) ('PCAOB'), the Company's internal control over financial reporting as of July 3, 2021, based on criteria established in Internal Control - Integrated Framework (2013) issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission ('COSO') and our report dated September 16, 2021 expressed an unqualified opinion thereon.

Change in Accounting Principles

As discussed in Note 1 to the consolidated financial statements, the Company changed its accounting method for accounting for leases in fiscal year 2020 due to the adoption of Topic 842: Leases, using a modified retrospective approach.
Basis for Opinion
These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company's consolidated financial statements based on our audits. We are a public accounting firm registered with the PCAOB and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.
We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud.
Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the consolidated financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements. Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the consolidated financial statements. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
Critical Audit Matters
The critical audit matters communicated below are matters arising from the current period audit of the consolidated financial statements that were communicated or required to be communicated to the audit committee and that: (1) relate to accounts or disclosures that are material to the consolidated financial statements and (2) involved our especially challenging, subjective, or complex judgments. The communication of critical audit matters does not alter in any way our opinion on the consolidated financial statements, taken as a whole, and we are not, by communicating the critical audit matters below, providing separate opinions on the critical audit matters or on the accounts or disclosures to which they relate.
Accounting for Revenue from Contracts with Customers
As described in Notes 1 and 15 to the consolidated financial statements, the Company's consolidated revenue balance was $519 million for the year ended July 3, 2021, of which $510 million related to revenues recognized over time and $9 million related to revenues recognized at a point in time. Revenues for contracts for manufacturing products and contracts for engineering
31

services are recognized over-time using the input method based on the ratio of costs incurred to date as compared to the total estimated costs at the completion of the performance obligation or as the services are performed.
We identified revenues recognized over time on contracts for manufacturing products as a critical audit matter. Management's calculation includes reports with varying elements, for determining the estimated costs incurred to date. Auditing these elements involved especially challenging and subjective auditor judgment due to the nature and extent of audit effort required to address these matters.
The primary procedures we performed to address this critical audit matter included:
Testing the design and operating effectiveness of controls relating to the inputs of the quarterly calculation of the contract asset for in process contracts for each manufacturing location;
Evaluating the methodology of estimating costs incurred to date on contracts for manufacturing products and testing the completeness and accuracy of the system reports by recalculating the expected costs on contracts in process;
Analyzing the margins realized and ratio of costs incurred by comparing the trending historic margins by customer and ratios of completion to prior periods.
Accounting for Inventories
As described in Note 1 and Note 2 to the consolidated financial statements, the Company's consolidated inventory balance was $137.3 million at July 3, 2021. In January 2021, the Company determined that improper accounting resulted in an understatement of cost of goods sold and an overstatement of inventories. Subsequent to the matter identified in January 2021, additional inventory accounting errors unrelated to the investigation were also identified by management. As discussed in Item 9A, Controls and Procedures, the errors were a result of material weaknesses in internal controls over financial reporting related to the design and operating effectiveness of certain controls over the accounting for inventory as well as the Company's monitoring activities as it pertains to accounting for inventory at its domestic facilities. As disclosed by the Company, the material weakness was remediated fully at July 3, 2021.
We identified management's estimates for costs capitalized to inventories, including the Company's internal investigation of improper inventory accounting, as a critical audit matter. Auditing these elements involved especially challenging auditor judgment due to the nature and extent of audit effort required to address these matters, including the extent of specialized skills and knowledge. In addition, as described in Item 9A, a material weakness in internal controls was disclosed as of December 26, 2020 and April 3, 2021, that relates to this matter.
The primary procedures we performed to address this critical audit matter included:
Utilizing personnel with specialized knowledge and skills in legal and forensic matters to assist in assessing the reasonableness of the scope, investigative procedures, and findings of the internal investigation supervised by the Audit Committee of the Company's Board of Directors.
Testing the design and operating effectiveness of controls relating to inventories and management's remedial measures of existing controls and implementation of additional controls, including oversight of the East Locations and review by the Corporate office of material account reconciliations and journal entries.
Analyzing the correction of the errors identified by assessing the estimates used in calculating the corrections of the errors related to costs capitalized to inventories and by evaluating corroborative evidence.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
1. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Business
Key Tronic Corporation and subsidiaries (the Company) is engaged in contract manufacturing for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and also manufactures keyboards and other input devices. The Company's headquarters are located in Spokane Valley, Washington with manufacturing operations in Oakdale, Minnesota; Fayetteville, Arkansas; Corinth, Mississippi; and foreign manufacturing operations in Juarez, Mexico; Shanghai, China; and Da Nang, Vietnam.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company has seen extreme shifts in demand from its customer base, supply chain and logistics risks. The possibility of future temporary closures, as well as adverse fluctuations in customer demand, freight and expedite costs, precautionary safety expenses and labor shortages, collectability of accounts, and future supply chain disruptions during the rapidly changing COVID-19 environment can materially impact operating results. Additionally, continued adverse macroeconomic conditions and significant currency exchange fluctuations can also materially impact operating results.
Correction of an Immaterial Errors
The Company previously reported as of June 27, 2020 that its inventory balances included finished goods of $15.3 million and work in process of $17.4 million. Such amounts actually related to raw materials. The Company has revised its disclosure of inventory to reflect these costs as raw material costs. There was no change to the total inventory balance. Refer to corrected disclosure in Note 2.
The Company made an out-of-period tax adjustment in fiscal year 2021 in the amount of $0.4 million decreasing the deferred tax asset related to unexercised stock appreciation rights (SARs), to reflect the fact that certain of the unexercised SARs had expired over several different periods prior to fiscal year 2021.
The Company previously excluded the right of use asset amounts as reported as of June 27, 2020 in Note 12. Refer to corrected disclosures in Note 12.
Principles of Consolidation
The consolidated financial statements include the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries in the United States, Mexico, China and Vietnam. Intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated during consolidation.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Estimates include the allowance for doubtful receivables, the provision for obsolete and non-saleable inventories, deferred tax assets and liabilities, uncertain tax positions, valuation of goodwill, impairment of long-lived assets, medical self-funded insurance liability, long-term incentive compensation accrual, the provision for warranty costs, the fair value of stock appreciation rights granted under the Company's share-based compensation plan and purchase price allocation of acquired businesses. Due to uncertainties with respect to the assumptions and estimates, actual results could differ from those estimates.
Cash and Cash Equivalents
The Company considers investments with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents. Cash equivalents are carried at cost, which approximates fair value. The Company may have cash and cash equivalents at financial institutions that are in excess of federally insured limits from time to time.
Allowance for Doubtful Accounts
The Company evaluates the collectability of accounts receivable and records an allowance for doubtful accounts, which reduces the receivables to an amount that management reasonably estimates will be collected. A specific allowance is recorded against receivables considered to be impaired based on the Company's knowledge of the financial condition of the customer. In determining the amount of the allowance, the Company considers several factors including the aging of the receivables, the current business environment and historical experience. After all attempts to collect a receivable have failed, the receivable is written off against the allowance.
38

Inventories
Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Inventory valuation is determined using the first-in, first-out (FIFO) method. Customer orders are based upon forecasted quantities of product manufactured for shipment over defined periods. Raw material inventories are purchased to fulfill these customer requirements. Within these arrangements, customer demands for products frequently change, sometimes creating excess and obsolete inventories. The Company regularly reviews raw material inventories by customer for both excess and obsolete quantities. Wherever possible, the Company attempts to recover its full cost of excess and obsolete inventories from customers or, in some cases, through other markets. When it is determined that the Company's carrying cost of such excess and obsolete inventories cannot be recovered in full, a charge is taken against income for the difference between the carrying cost and the estimated realizable amount. We also reserve for inventory related to specific customers covered by lead-time assurance agreements when those customers are experiencing financial difficulties or reimbursement is not reasonably assured.
Property, Plant and Equipment
Property, plant and equipment are carried at cost and depreciated using straight-line methods over the expected useful lives of the assets. Repairs and maintenance costs are expensed as incurred.
Impairment of Goodwill
In accordance with accounting guidance on goodwill and other intangible assets, the Company evaluates goodwill for impairment at the reporting unit level annually, and whenever circumstances occur indicating that goodwill might be impaired. Upon adoption of ASU 2017-04, the Company now recognizes an impairment charge (not to exceed the total amount of goodwill allocated to the reporting unit) for the amount by which the carrying amount of a reporting unit exceeds the reporting unit's fair value. During the third quarter of fiscal year 2019, a few large programs declined in revenue and two new programs were delayed. This decrease in the Company's total revenue combined with book value continuing to exceed market capitalization caused a 'triggering event' in which to perform a quantitative impairment analysis as of March 30, 2019. To estimate the fair value of the Company's equity, the Company used both a market approach and an income approach, based on a discounted cash flows analysis. As of March 30, 2019, market related factors increased expected required rates of return, which also increased the Company's discount rate used to project future cash flows. Further, push outs of the Company's forecasted future cash flows relating to delays in customer orders adversely impacted the Company's discounted cash flows model. As a result, a lower estimate in the Company's fair value using these two valuation methods indicated an impairment charge.
During the third quarter of fiscal year 2019, the Company also assessed other finite-lived intangible assets including the Company's customer relationships and favorable lease agreements due to an indicator of possible impairment being present, as discussed above. As a result of the analysis performed, the Company determined that the carrying value of the customer relationships intangible asset was not recoverable and recorded an impairment for the entire carrying amount during the third quarter of fiscal year 2019. The Company's analysis did not indicate that any of its other long-lived assets were impaired. Refer to footnote 14 for impairment analysis for goodwill and other intangibles that occurred during fiscal year 2019, as a result of certain triggering events being present.
Impairment of Long-lived Assets
The Company, using its best estimates based on reasonable and supportable assumptions and projections, reviews assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances have indicated that the carrying amount of its assets might not be recoverable. Impaired assets are reported at the lower of cost or fair value.
Accrued Warranty
An accrual is made for expected warranty costs, with the related expense recognized in cost of goods sold. Management reviews the adequacy of this accrual quarterly based on historical analyses and anticipated product returns.
39

Self-funded Insurance
The Company self-funds its domestic employee health plans. The Company contracts with a separate administrative service company to supervise and administer the programs and act as its representative. The Company reduces its risk under this self-funded platform by purchasing stop-loss insurance coverage for high dollar individual claims. In addition, if the aggregate annual claims amount to more than 125 percent of expected claims for the plan year this insurance will also pay those claims amounts exceeding that level.
The Company estimates its exposure for claims incurred but not paid at the end of each reporting period and uses historical claims data supplied by the Company's broker to estimate its self-funded insurance liability. This liability is subject to a total limitation that varies based on employee enrollment and factors that are established at each annual contract renewal. Actual claims experience may differ from the Company's estimates. Costs related to the administration of the plan and related claims are expensed as incurred.
Revenue Recognition
ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) was adopted effective fiscal year 2019. The primary impact was switching to over-time recognition which accelerated the Company's revenue recognition for in-process inventory and the cumulative impact from adoption is reflected in the Statement of Shareholders' Equity.
Subsequent to the adoption of ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) during the year ended June 29, 2019, the first step in its process for revenue recognition is to identify the contract with a customer. A contract is defined as an agreement between two or more parties that creates enforceable rights and obligations. A contract can be written, oral, or implied. The Company generally enters into manufacturing service agreements ('MSA') with its customers that outlines the terms of the business relationship between the customer and the Company. This includes matters such as warranty, indemnification, transfer of title and risk of loss, liability for excess and obsolete inventory, pricing, payment terms, etc. The Company will also bid on a program-by-program basis for customers in which an executed MSA may not be in place. In these instances, as well as when we have an MSA in place, we receive customer purchase orders for specific quantities and timing of products. As a result, the Company considers its contract with a customer to be the combination of the MSA and the purchase order. The transaction price is fixed and set forth in each purchase order. In the Company's normal course of business, there are no variable pricing components, or material amounts refunded to customers in the form of refunds or rebates.
The Company assesses whether control of the product or services promised under the contract is transferred to the customer at a point in time (shipment) or over time (as we manufacture the product). The Company is first required to evaluate whether its contracts meet the criteria for 'over-time' or 'point-in-time' recognition. The Company has determined that for the majority of its contracts the Company is manufacturing products for which there is no alternative use due to the unique nature of the customer-specific product, IP and other contract restrictions. The Company has an enforceable right to payment including a reasonable profit for performance completed to date with respect to these contracts. As a result, revenue is recognized under these contracts 'over-time' based on the input cost-to-cost method as it better depicts the transfer of control. This input method is based on the ratio of costs incurred to date as compared to the total estimated costs at completion of the performance obligation. For all other contracts that do not meet these criteria, such as manufacturing contracts for which the terms do not provide an enforceable right to payment for performance completed to date, the Company recognizes revenue when it has transferred control of the related manufactured products which generally occurs upon shipment to the customer. Revenue from engineering services is recognized over time as the services are performed.
Shipping and Handling Fees
The Company classifies costs associated with shipping and handling fees as a component of cost of goods sold. Customer billings related to shipping and handling fees are reported as revenue.
Research, Development and Engineering
Research, development and engineering expenses include unreimbursed contract manufacturing costs as well as design and engineering costs associated with the production of contract manufacturing programs. Research, development and engineering costs are expensed as incurred.
Income Taxes
Income taxes are accounted for under the asset and liability method. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the estimated future tax consequences and benefits attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases, as well as tax credit carryforwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which temporary differences and carryforwards are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities for a change in tax rates is recognized in the period that includes the enactment date. Valuation allowances are established when necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount that is more likely than not to be realized.
40

We utilize a two-step approach to recognizing and measuring uncertain tax positions. The first step is to evaluate the tax position for recognition by determining if the weight of available evidence indicates it is more likely than not that the position will be sustained on audit, including resolution of related appeals or litigation processes, if any. The second step is to measure the tax benefit as the largest amount which is more than 50% likely of being realized upon ultimate settlement. We consider many factors when evaluating and estimating our tax positions and tax benefits, which may require periodic adjustments based on new assessments and changes in estimates and which may not accurately forecast actual outcomes. Our policy is to recognize interest and penalties related to the underpayment of income taxes as a component of income tax provision. To date, we have not incurred charges for interest or penalties in relation to the underpayment of income taxes. The tax years 2004 through the present remain open to examination by the major U.S. taxing jurisdictions to which we are subject. Refer to Note 6 for further discussions.
Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities
The Company has entered into foreign currency forward contracts and an interest rate swap which are accounted for as cash flow hedges in accordance with ASC 815, Derivatives and Hedging. The effective portion of the gain or loss on the derivative is reported as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income (AOCI) and is reclassified into earnings in the same period in which the underlying hedged transaction affects earnings. The derivative's effectiveness represents the change in fair value of the hedge that offsets the change in fair value of the hedged item.
The Company uses derivatives to manage the variability of foreign currency fluctuations of expenses in our Mexico facilities. The foreign currency forward contracts and interest rate swaps have terms that are matched to the underlying transactions being hedged. As a result, these transactions fully offset the hedged risk and no ineffectiveness has been recorded.
The Company's foreign currency forward contracts and interest rate swaps potentially expose the Company to credit risk to the extent the counterparties may be unable to meet the terms of the agreement. The Company minimizes such risk by seeking high quality counterparties. The Company's counterparties to the foreign currency forward contracts and interest rate swaps are major banking institutions. These institutions do not require collateral for the contracts, and the Company believes that the risk of the counterparties failing to meet their contractual obligations is remote. The Company does not enter into derivative instruments for trading or speculative purposes.
Earnings Per Common Share
Basic earnings per common share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per common share is computed by dividing net income by the combination of other potentially dilutive weighted average common shares and the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period using the treasury stock method. The computation assumes the proceeds from the exercise of stock options were used to repurchase common shares at the average market price during the period. The computation of diluted earnings per common share does not assume conversion, exercise, or contingent issuance of common stock equivalent shares that would have an anti-dilutive effect on earnings per share.
Foreign Currency Transactions
The functional currency of the Company's subsidiaries in Mexico and China is the U.S. dollar. Realized foreign currency transaction gains and losses for local currency denominated assets and liabilities are included in cost of goods sold.
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
The carrying values of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, current liabilities, and non current operating lease liability are reflected on the balance sheets at July 3, 2021 and June 27, 2020, reasonably approximate their fair value. The Company had an outstanding balance on the line of credit of $90.9 million as of July 3, 2021 and $60.1 million as of June 27, 2020, with a carrying value that reasonably approximates the fair value. The Company had an outstanding balance on the term loan of $4.2 million as of July 3, 2021 and $10.0 million as of June 27, 2020, with a carrying value that reasonably approximates the fair value. The equipment term loan was $5.8 million as of July 3, 2021 and $0.9 million as of June 27, 2020, with a carrying value that reasonably approximates the fair value.
Share-based Compensation
The Company's incentive plan may provide for equity and liability awards to employees in the form of stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, restricted stock units, stock awards, stock units, performance shares, performance units, and other stock-based or cash-based awards. Compensation cost is recognized on a straight-line basis over the requisite employee service period, which is generally the vesting period, and is included in cost of goods sold, research, development and engineering, and selling, general, and administrative expenses. Share-based compensation is recognized only for those awards that are expected to vest, with forfeitures estimated at the date of grant based on historical experience and future expectations.

Newly Adopted and Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In January 2021, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standard Update (ASU) 2021-01, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848) to identify alternative reference rates that are more observable or transaction based and less susceptible to manipulation. The Company is currently assessing the effects on its consolidated financial statements, and if it will elect this optional standard.
In March of 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-03, Codification Improvements to Financial Instruments, which clarifies specific issues raised by stakeholders. Specifically, the ASU clarifies the following: 1) that all entities are required to provide the fair value option disclosures in ASC 825, Financial Instruments 2) clarifies that the portfolio exception in ASC 820, Fair Value Measurement, applies to nonfinancial items accounted for as derivatives under ASC 815, Derivatives and Hedging; 3) clarifies that for purposes of measuring expected credit losses on a net investment in a lease in accordance with ASC 326, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses, the lease term determined in accordance with ASC 842, Leases, should be used as the contractual term; 4) clarifies that when an entity regains control of financial assets sold, it should recognize an allowance for credit losses in accordance with ASC 326; and 5) aligns the disclosure requirements for debt securities in ASC 320, Investments - Debt Securities, with the corresponding requirements for depository and lending institutions in ASC 942, Financial Services - Depository and Lending. The amendments in the ASU have various effective dates and transition requirements which are dependent on timing of adoption of ASU 2016-13. The Company is currently assessing the effects on its consolidated financial statements, and it intends to adopt the guidance as they become effective.
In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes (Topic 740), which modifies certain provisions of ASC 740, Income Taxes, in an effort to reduce the complexity of accounting for income taxes. ASU 2019-12 is effective for us the first quarter of fiscal year 2022. We are currently evaluating the effects and do not believe this standard will have a material impact on our consolidated financial position, results of operations, or cash flows.
In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13 'Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments' and also issued subsequent amendments to the initial guidance: ASU 2018-19, ASU 2019-04 and ASU 2019-05, which replaces the existing incurred loss impairment model with an expected credit loss model and requires a financial asset measured at amortized cost to be presented at the net amount expected to be collected. The guidance is effective for the Company beginning in the first quarter of fiscal year 2024 with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact on its consolidated financial statements, and it intends to adopt the guidance when it becomes effective in the first quarter of fiscal year 2024.

4. LONG-TERM DEBT
On August 14, 2020, the Company entered into a loan agreement with Bank of America. The Loan Agreement replaces the Company's prior amended and restated credit agreement, as amended, with Wells Fargo Bank. The Loan Agreement provides for a five-year asset-based senior secured revolving credit facility of up to $93 million, maturing on August 14, 2025. As of July 3, 2021, the Company had an outstanding balance under the asset-based revolving credit facility of $90.9 million, $0.3 million in outstanding letters of credit and $2.1 million available for future borrowings.
As of June 27, 2020, the Company had an outstanding balance under the credit facility with Wells Fargo Bank of $60.1 million, $0.4 million in outstanding letters of credit and $4.5 million available for future borrowings. The Company had an outstanding balance of $10.0 million under the term loan with Wells Fargo Bank as of June 27, 2020.
On August 14, 2020, the Company also entered into a $5.0 million equipment financing facility with Bank of America relating to the Company's existing U.S. manufacturing equipment that bears interest at 4.85% and matures on August 14, 2025. Under this loan agreement, equal monthly payments of approximately $94,000 commenced on September 14, 2020 and will continue through the maturity of the equipment financing facility on August 14, 2025. As of July 3, 2021, the Company had an outstanding balance of $4.2 million.

Generally, the interest rate applicable to loans under the Bank of America loan agreement are, at the Company's option: (i)(A) the base rate which is the highest of (1) the prime rate for the applicable day (as such rate is determined from time to time by the Bank), (2) the federal funds rate for the applicable day plus 0.50%, and (3) LIBOR for a 30-day interest period as of the applicable day plus 1.00% (provided that in no event shall the base rate be less than zero), plus the applicable interest margin for base rate loans; and (B) LIBOR rate for an applicable interest period (provided that in no event shall the LIBOR rate be less than 0.50%), plus the applicable interest margin for LIBOR rate loans. Depending on average daily excess borrowing availability over applicable periods under the Credit Facility, applicable interest margins on: (x) base rate loans are 1.25-1.75%; and (y) LIBOR rate loans are 2.25-2.75%, resetting on a quarterly basis. If there is an event of default under the loan agreement, all loans and other obligations will bear interest at a rate of an additional 2.00% on the otherwise applicable interest rates. In addition to interest charges, the Company is required to pay a fee of 0.25% per annum on the unused portion of the Credit Facility, monthly in arrears.
Under the loan agreement with Bank of America, the asset-based revolving credit facility bears interest at LIBOR plus 2.5%, as elected by the Company.
On November 24, 2020, the Company entered into a $6.0 million equipment financing facility related to the Company's existing manufacturing equipment that bears interest at 5.52% and matures on April 24, 2026. Under this loan agreement, equal monthly payments of $100,000 commenced on May 24, 2021 and will continue through the maturity of the equipment financing facility on April 24, 2026. As of July 3, 2021, the Company had an outstanding balance of $5.8 million.

6. INCOME TAXES
Income tax benefit consists of the following:

(in thousands)
Current income tax benefit:
United States $ 1,416 $ 365 $ (537)

Foreign (84) 892 (206)
(942) (958) (1,116)
Total income tax provision (benefit) $ 1,572 $ (439) $ (758)
The Company has gross tax credit carryforwards of approximately $6.1 million at July 3, 2021 consisting of federal research and development (R&D) tax credits, and approximately $1.9 million of net operating loss carryovers in China which expire in fiscal years 2025 and 2026.
Management has reviewed all deferred tax assets for purposes of determining whether or not a valuation allowance may be required. A valuation allowance against deferred tax assets is required if it is more likely than not that some of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. Based upon the Company's profitability, forecasted income, and evaluation of all other positive and negative evidence, management determined that it is more likely than not that the deferred tax assets will be realized.
On January 27, 2021, the Company received official notice from the Vietnamese tax authorities, confirming tax benefits awarded related to the Company's principal product line in Vietnam (the 'Tax Holiday'). Under the Tax Holiday, the tax rate applied to income derived from this product line will be zero percent for four years beginning with fiscal year 2021, then five percent for nine years, then ten percent for one year (as opposed to the normal twenty percent Vietnamese statutory rate). Consequently, Management has revalued its net operating loss in Vietnam at the zero percent Tax Holiday rate, as the net operating loss carryovers are projected to expire before the end of the Tax Holiday. The Company eliminated the deferred tax assets attributable to the Vietnam net operating loss carryover ($0.2 million) in the third quarter of fiscal year 2021.
The Company evaluated tax law changes and regulatory guidance issued in fiscal year 2021. Such changes and regulations include guidance under Sec. 162(m), Sec. 245A, Sec. 951A, foreign tax credits, and rules relating to consolidated NOL carryback claims. The Company evaluated the ongoing impact of these law and regulatory changes, and which did not have a material impact on its provision for income taxes.
Subsequent to the end of the fiscal year ending June 27, 2020, the Treasury Department issued final regulations applicable to the Company's position with respect to the U.S. taxability of foreign earnings under the global intangible low taxed income
44

(also known as 'GILTI') regime and the deductibility of interest expense under IRC Section 163(j). These regulations did not have a material impact to the Company's income tax positions.
On March 27, 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) was enacted in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The CARES Act, among other things, permits net operating loss (NOL) carryovers and carrybacks to offset 100% of taxable income for taxable years beginning before 2021. In addition, the CARES Act allows NOLs incurred in 2018, 2019, and 2020 to be carried back to each of the five preceding taxable years to generate a refund of previously paid income taxes. The Company does not expect that the NOL carryback provision of the CARES Act will result in a material cash benefit. In addition, the CARES Act contains modifications on the limitation of business interest for tax years beginning in 2019 and 2020. The modifications to Section 163(j) increase the allowable business interest deduction from 30% of adjusted taxable income to 50% of adjusted taxable income. This modification increased the allowable interest expense deduction of the Company, resulting in less taxable income for fiscal year 2020, but did not have a material impact on the fiscal year 2021 provision for income taxes. Also, under the CARES Act, AMT credits not previously refunded for the 2018 tax year are refundable in the 2019 taxable year rather than in years 2019-2021, and taxpayers can elect to claim 100% of the AMT credits in the first taxable year beginning in 2018 by applying for a tentative refund claim on or before December 31, 2020. The Company has made this election by applying for a tentative refund claim. The Company took advantage of the deferred payment payroll taxes provision, resulting in decreased deductible payroll tax payments, and increased taxable income, in fiscal years 2020 and 2021. Similarly, other aspects of the CARES Act did not have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial position, results of operations, or cash flows.
In future years, repatriations of cash will generally be tax-free in the U.S. However, withholding taxes in China may still apply to any such future repatriations. Management has not changed its indefinite investment assertions regarding to the portion of accumulated earnings and profits in China that may be repatriated in the future. Accordingly, management estimates that future repatriations of cash from China may result in approximately $0.8 million of withholding tax. There would be no offsetting foreign tax credits in the U.S. and as such, this potential liability is a direct cost associated with actual repatriations. Withholding taxes will not apply to future repatriations from Mexico or Vietnam.
The Company expects to repatriate a portion of its foreign earnings based on increased net sales growth driving additional capital requirements domestically, cash requirements for potential acquisitions and to implement certain tax strategies. The Company expects to repatriate approximately $7.5 million from China, in the future. All other unremitted foreign earnings are expected to remain permanently reinvested for planned fixed assets purchases and improvements in foreign locations.

As of July 3, 2021, the Company had unrecognized tax benefits of $2.6 million related to its gross R&D tax credits. The unrecognized tax benefits relate to certain R&D tax credits generated from 2004 to 2021.
A reconciliation of the beginning and ending amount of unrecognized tax benefits is as follows:

Of the $4.863 million of unrecognized tax benefits at the end of fiscal year 2021, $2.6 million, if recognized, would reduce the effective tax rate. Management does not anticipate any material changes to this amount during the next 12 months.
The Company recognizes interest accrued related to unrecognized tax benefits and penalties in its income tax provision. The Company has not recognized any interest or penalties in the fiscal years presented in these financial statements. The Company is subject to income tax in the U.S. federal jurisdiction, various state jurisdictions, Mexico, China and Vietnam. Certain years remain subject to examination but there are currently no ongoing exams in any taxing jurisdictions.

7. EARNINGS PER SHARE
Basic earnings per share (EPS) is calculated by dividing net income (the numerator) by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding (the denominator) during the period. Diluted EPS is computed by including both the weighted-average number of shares outstanding and any dilutive common share equivalents in the denominator. The following table presents a reconciliation of the denominator and the number of antidilutive common share awards that were not included in the diluted earnings per share calculation. These antidilutive securities occur when equity awards outstanding have an option price greater than the average market price for the period:

8. STOCK OPTION AND BENEFIT PLANS
The Company's incentive plan provides for equity and liability awards to employees and non-employee directors in the form of stock options, stock appreciation rights (SARs), restricted stock, restricted stock units, stock awards, stock units, performance shares, performance units, and other stock-based or cash-based awards. Compensation cost is recognized on a straight-line basis over the requisite employee service period, which is generally the vesting period, and is recorded as employee compensation expense in cost of goods sold, research, development and engineering, and selling, general and administrative expenses. Share-based compensation is recognized only for those awards that are expected to vest, with forfeitures estimated at the date of grant based on historical experience and future expectations.
In addition to service conditions, these SARs contain a performance condition. The additional performance condition is based upon the achievement of Return on Invested Capital (ROIC) goals relative to a peer group. All awards with performance conditions are measured over the vesting period and are charged to compensation expense over the requisite service period based on the number of shares expected to vest. The SARs cliff vest after a three-year period from date of grant and expire five years from date of grant.
On July 23, 2020, the Company granted 155,000 SARs under the 2010 Incentive Plan to certain key employees and outside directors at a strike price of $6.94 and a grant date fair value of $2.32. As of July 3, 2021, 150,000 remain outstanding. The grant date fair value for the awards granted during fiscal year 2021, were estimated using the Black Scholes option valuation method with the following weighted average assumptions as of July 23, 2020:
Fiscal Year 2021
July 23, 2020
Expected dividend yield -%
Risk - free interest rate 0.17%
Expected volatility 42.85%
Expected life 4.00

On July 26, 2019, the Company granted 175,000 SARs under the 2010 Incentive Plan to certain key employees and outside directors at a strike price of $4.93 and a grant date fair value of $1.23. As of July 3, 2021, 140,000 remain outstanding. The grant date fair value for the awards granted during fiscal year 2020, were estimated using the Black Scholes option valuation method with the following weighted average assumptions as of July 26, 2019:
Fiscal Year 2020
July 26, 2019
Expected dividend yield -%
Risk - free interest rate 1.54%
Expected volatility 28.50%
Expected life 4.00
On July 27, 2018, the Company granted 161,250 SARs under the 2010 Incentive Plan to certain key employees and outside directors at a strike price of $8.17 and a grant date fair value of $2.27. As of July 3, 2021, 116,250 remain outstanding. The grant date fair value for the awards granted during fiscal year 2019, were estimated using the Black Scholes option valuation method with the following weighted average assumptions as of July 27, 2018:
Fiscal Year 2019
July 27, 2018
Expected dividend yield -%
Risk - free interest rate 2.80%
Expected volatility 29.75%
Expected life 4.00
Subsequent to July 3, 2021, the Company granted 165,000 SARs with a strike price of $7.17 and a grant date fair value of $2.73.
Share-based compensation expense is recognized only for those awards that are expected to vest, with forfeitures estimated at the date of grant based on the Company's historical experience and future expectations. This forfeiture rate will be revised, if necessary, in subsequent periods if actual forfeitures differ from the amount estimated. Share-based compensation expense for fiscal years ended July 3, 2021, June 27, 2020 and June 29, 2019 was $0.2 million, $0.3 million and $0.4 million, respectively.
The Black-Scholes option valuation model is used by the Company for estimating the fair value of SARs. Option valuation models require the input of highly subjective assumptions, particularly for the expected term and expected stock price volatility. Changes in these assumptions can materially affect the fair value estimates.
There were 20,000 SARs exercised with an immaterial amount of intrinsic value in fiscal year 2021. There were no SARs exercised during fiscal year 2020 or 2019.
As of July 3, 2021, total unrecognized compensation expense related to nonvested share-based compensation arrangements was approximately $0.3 million. This expense is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 1.81 years.

9. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
Leases: As of July 3, 2021, June 27, 2020 and June 29, 2019, the Company did not have any property and equipment financed under finance leases. Please refer to Note 16 for information regarding operating lease commitments.
Rental expense under operating leases was approximately $4.5 million, $4.2 million, and $5.0 million during fiscal years 2021, 2020 and 2019, respectively.
Warranty Costs: The Company provides warranties on certain product sales, and allowances for estimated warranty costs are recorded during the period of sale. The determination of such allowances requires the Company to make estimates of product return rates and expected costs to repair or to replace the products under warranty. The Company establishes warranty reserves based on historical warranty costs for each product line combined with liability estimates based on the prior twelve months' sales activities. As of July 3, 2021 and June 27, 2020, the reserve for warranty costs was approximately $25,000 and $15,000, respectively.
If actual return rates and/or repair and replacement costs differ significantly from estimates, adjustments to recognize additional cost of sales may be required in future periods. Warranty expense for fiscal years 2021, 2020 and 2019 was related to workmanship claims on certain contract manufacturing products.
50

Litigation: The Company is party to certain lawsuits or claims in the ordinary course of business. The Company does not believe that these proceedings, individually or in the aggregate, will have a material adverse effect on the financial position, results of operations or cash flow of the Company.
Internal Investigation: During fiscal 2021, the Company's Audit Committee completed an internal investigation arising from a notification from an employee regarding certain alleged accounting irregularities. In January 2021, the Company determined that improper accounting resulted in an understatement of cost of goods sold and an overstatement of inventories. Subsequent to the matter identified in January 2021, additional inventory accounting errors unrelated to the investigation were also identified by management. The investigation did not result in a restatement of our previously filed financial statements. The Company is cooperating with the Securities and Exchange Commission's (the 'SEC') inquiries related to the internal investigation. The Company cannot currently form an estimate of any possible loss or range of loss, including any potential monetary penalties; or other remedies potentially imposed by the SEC.
Indemnification Rights: Under the Company's bylaws, the Company's directors and officers have certain rights to indemnification by the Company against certain liabilities that may arise by reason of their status or service as directors or officers. The Company maintains director and officer insurance, which may cover certain liabilities arising from its obligation to indemnify its directors and officers and former directors in certain circumstances.

The Company is subject to the risk of fluctuating interest rates from our line of credit and foreign currency risk resulting from our China operations. The Company does not currently manage these risk exposures by using derivative instruments.
11. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
The Company has adopted ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements,which defines fair value, establishes a framework for assets and liabilities being measured and reported at fair value and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. There are three levels of fair value hierarchy inputs used to value assets and liabilities which include: Level 1 - inputs are quoted market prices for identical assets or liabilities; Level 2 - inputs other than quoted market prices included in Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly; and Level 3 - inputs are unobservable inputs for the asset or liability. There have been no changes in the fair value methodologies used at July 3, 2021 and June 27, 2020.

The following table summarizes the fair value of assets (liabilities) of the Company's derivatives that are required to be measured on a recurring basis as of July 3, 2021 and June 27, 2020 (in thousands):

The Company currently has forward contracts to hedge known future cash outflows for expenses denominated in the Mexican peso and had an interest rate swap to mitigate risk associated with certain borrowings under the Company's debt arrangement. These contracts are measured on a recurring basis based on the foreign currency spot rates and forward rates quoted by banks or foreign currency dealers. These contracts are marked to market using level 2 input criteria every quarter with the unrealized gain or loss, net of tax, reported as a component of shareholders' equity in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss), as they qualify for hedge accounting.
The carrying values of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, and current liabilities are reflected on the balance sheets at July 3, 2021 and June 27, 2020, reasonably approximate their fair value.
The Company's long-term debt, which is measured at amortized cost, primarily consists of an asset-based revolving credit facility, lease liability, and equipment loans. These borrowings bear interest at LIBOR plus 2.5% per the loan agreement. Each of these rates is a variable floating rate dependent upon current market conditions and the Company's current credit risk as discussed in Note 4.
As a result of the determinable market rates for our asset-based revolving credit facility and equipment loans, they are classified within Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy. Further, the carrying value of each of these instruments reasonably approximates their fair value as of July 3, 2021 and June 27, 2020.

14. GOODWILL AND OTHER INTANGIBLE ASSETS
The Company recorded goodwill in connection with the Ayrshire and Sabre acquisitions resulting primarily from the synergies that resulted from the Company's acquisitions and the assembled workforce. The goodwill is not amortized for financial accounting purposes.
In accordance with accounting guidance on goodwill and other intangible assets, the Company evaluates goodwill for impairment at the reporting unit level annually, and whenever circumstances occur indicating that goodwill might be impaired. Upon adoption of ASU 2017-04, the Company now recognizes an impairment charge (not to exceed the total amount of goodwill allocated to the reporting unit) for the amount by which the carrying amount of a reporting unit exceeds the reporting unit's fair value. During the third quarter of fiscal year 2019, a goodwill impairment of $10.0 million was recognized.
During the third quarter for fiscal year 2019, the Company assessed other finite-lived intangible assets including the Company's customer relationships and favorable lease agreements due to an indicator of possible impairment being present. As a result of the analysis performed, the Company determined that the carrying value of the customer relationships intangible asset was not recoverable and recorded an impairment for the entire carrying amount during the third quarter of fiscal year 2019. This resulted in an impairment charge related to other intangible assets of $2.5 million recognized in the third quarter of fiscal year 2019. The Company's analysis did not indicate that any of its other long-lived assets were impaired.
During the first quarter of fiscal year 2020, the Company adopted the Accounting Standards Update 2016-02, Leases which supersedes ASC 840 Leases and creates a new topic, ASC 842 Leases. Under ASC 842, any assets or liabilities recognized in accordance with ASC 805 that are related to favorable or unfavorable terms of an operating lease for which an entity is a lessee, the entity should derecognize the asset or liability and commensurately adjust the ROU asset. Refer to footnote 16 for additional disclosure.
As such, the Company derecognized the intangible asset and added the offsetting amount to the ROU asset. Resulting in a reduction of favorable lease agreement intangible of $0.7 million, and no adjustment to retained earnings or future P&L impact.

15. REVENUE
Revenue Recognition
The Company specializes in services ranging from product manufacturing to engineering and tooling services. The first step in its process for revenue recognition is to identify the contract with a customer. A contract is defined as an agreement between two or more parties that creates enforceable rights and obligations. A contract can be written, oral, or implied. The Company generally enters into manufacturing service agreements ('MSA') with its customers that outlines the terms of the business relationship between the customer and the Company. This includes matters such as warranty, indemnification, transfer of title and risk of loss, liability for excess and obsolete inventory, pricing, payment terms, etc. The Company will also bid on a program-by-program basis for customers in which an executed MSA may not be in place. In these instances, as well as when we have an MSA in place, we receive customer purchase orders for specific quantities and timing of products. As a result, the Company considers its contract with a customer to be the combination of the MSA and the purchase order. The transaction price is fixed and set forth in each purchase order. In the Company's normal course of business, there are no variable pricing components, or material amounts refunded to customers in the form of refunds or rebates.
56

The Company assesses whether control of the product or services promised under the contract is transferred to the customer at a point in time (shipment) or over time (as we manufacture the product). The Company is first required to evaluate whether its contracts meet the criteria for 'over-time' or 'point-in-time' recognition. The Company has determined that for the majority of its contracts the Company is manufacturing products for which there is no alternative use due to the unique nature of the customer-specific product, IP and other contract restrictions. The Company has an enforceable right to payment including a reasonable profit for performance completed to date with respect to these contracts. As a result, revenue is recognized under these contracts 'over-time' based on the input cost-to-cost method as it better depicts the transfer of control. This input method is based on the ratio of costs incurred to date as compared to the total estimated costs at completion of the performance obligation. For all other contracts that do not meet these criteria, such as manufacturing contracts for which the terms do not provide an enforceable right to payment for performance completed to date, the Company recognizes revenue when it has transferred control of the related manufactured products which generally occurs upon shipment to the customer. Revenue from engineering services is recognized over time as the services are performed.
The Company's typical payment terms are 30 to 45 days and its sales arrangements do not contain any significant financing component for its customers.
The Company generally provides a warranty for workmanship on its manufacturing contracts. Historically, the amount of returns for workmanship issues has been de minimis under the Company's warranties.
The Company elected to not disclose information about remaining performance obligations as they are part of contracts that that have expected durations of one year or less.
The Company has elected to expense costs to obtain contracts as incurred as these costs are immaterial to the financial statements.
During fiscal 2021, 2020 and 2019, no revenues were recognized from performance obligations satisfied or partially satisfied in previous periods.
Contract Balances
A contract asset is recognized when the Company has recognized revenue, but has not issued an invoice for payment. Contract assets are classified separately on the condensed consolidated balance sheet and transferred to receivables when the right to payment becomes unconditional.
The following table summarizes the activity in the Company's contract assets during the twelve months ended July 3, 2021 (in thousands):

Item 9A: CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
It is the responsibility of our management to establish, maintain, and monitor disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the 'Exchange Act') are recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms. Additionally, these disclosure controls include controls and procedures that are designed to accumulate and communicate the information required to be disclosed to our Company's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, allowing for timely decisions regarding required disclosures.
As of the end of the period covered by this report, our management carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures pursuant to Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(f). Based on our assessment, we believe that as of July 3, 2021, the Company's disclosure controls and procedures are effective based on that criteria.
Management's Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting
Our management has the responsibility to establish and maintain adequate internal controls over our financial reporting, as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934. Our internal controls are designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of our financial reporting and the preparation of our external financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).
Due to inherent limitations of any internal control system, management acknowledges that there are limitations as to the effectiveness of internal controls over financial reporting and therefore recognize that only reasonable assurance can be gained from any internal control system. Accordingly, our internal control system may not detect or prevent material misstatements in our financial statements and projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
Under the supervision and participation of management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, we have performed an assessment of the effectiveness of our internal controls over financial reporting as of July 3, 2021. This assessment was based on the criteria established in Internal Control-Integrated Framework (2013), issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission. Based on our assessment, we believe that as of July 3, 2021, the Company's internal control over financial reporting is effective based on that criteria.
The effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting as of July 3, 2021 has been audited by BDO USA LLP, an independent registered public accounting firm, as stated in their report which is included herein.
Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
As previously disclosed, in January 2021, the Company determined that improper accounting resulted in an understatement of cost of goods sold and an overstatement of inventory during the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2020 and the first six months of fiscal year 2021. Subsequent to the matter identified in January 2021, additional inventory accounting errors unrelated to the investigation were also identified by management. As a result, we previously disclosed a material weakness in internal control over financial reporting as of December 26, 2020 and April 3, 2021, in our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for such periods. The material weakness related to the design and operating effectiveness of certain controls over the accounting for inventory as well as the Company's monitoring activities as it pertained to accounting for inventory at its domestic facilities. During the third and fourth quarters of fiscal year 2021, management implemented, and continues to implement, the following actions to remediate the material weakness and help prevent reoccurrence:
Implemented a control design enhancement by incorporating an additional level of review related to significant balance sheet accounts for each of our production facilities in Arkansas, Minnesota and Mississippi (the 'East Locations');
implemented additional controls requiring management to (i) analyze certain inventory balances and the related revenue recognized in each period in each of our East Locations, and (ii) review manual journal entries recorded at our East Locations to ensure proper accounting treatment;
implemented changes in reporting structures for finance and accounting personnel in the Company's domestic production facilities and East Division;
provided enhanced training to financial and operational personnel related to accounting principals generally accepted in the United States, with an emphasis in inventory and the ASC 606 revenue recognition standard;
implementing a system upgrade to simplify the process for determining the cost of inventory items and providing related training to employees regarding the new system functionality;
60

continue to provide additional training to control owners performing certain controls over the accounting for inventory; and,
continue to enhance the design of our monitoring control activities, specifically financial and operational oversight, at each facility.
During the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2021, we completed our testing of operating effectiveness of the remedial actions implemented and found that our controls are designed and operating effectively. As a result, we concluded that the material weakness has been remediated as of July 3, 2021.
Except for the remediation actions with respect to the material weakness described above, there have been no significant changes in our internal controls over financial reporting during our fourth fiscal quarter ended July 3, 2021 that have materially affected, or are reasonable likely to materially affect, the Company's internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a - 15(f) and 15d - 15(f)).

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

Shareholders and Board of Directors
Key Tronic Corporation
Spokane Valley, Washington
Opinion on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

We have audited Key Tronic Corporation's (the 'Company's') internal control over financial reporting as of July 3, 2021, based on criteria established in Internal Control - Integrated Framework (2013) issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (the 'COSO criteria'). In our opinion, the Company maintained, in all material respects, effective internal control over financial reporting as of July 3, 2021, based on the COSO criteria.
We also have audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) ('PCAOB'), the consolidated balance sheets of the Company as of July 3, 2021 and June 27, 2020, the related consolidated statements of income (loss), comprehensive income (loss), shareholders' equity, and cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended July 3, 2021, and the related notes and schedule and our report dated September 16, 2021 expressed an unqualified opinion thereon.
Basis for Opinion
The Company's management is responsible for maintaining effective internal control over financial reporting and for its assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting, included in the accompanying 'Item 9A, Management's Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting'. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company's internal control over financial reporting based on our audit. We are a public accounting firm registered with the PCAOB and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.
We conducted our audit of internal control over financial reporting in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether effective internal control over financial reporting was maintained in all material respects. Our audit included obtaining an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, assessing the risk that a material weakness exists, and testing and evaluating the design and operating effectiveness of internal control based on the assessed risk. Our audit also included performing such other procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.
Definition and Limitations of Internal Control over Financial Reporting
A company's internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. A company's internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company; (2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of the company's assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.
Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
