New IPC statistical program to track worldwide EMS FINANCIAL METRICS

20 APRIL 2009

IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries® announced today the launch of its new Global EMS Statistical Program to measure and track financial metrics quarterly for the worldwide electronics manufacturing services (EMS) industry. The first survey, for first-quarter 2009 data, will be online this week. The deadline for survey responses as well as for participation in the 2009 program is April 29. The surveys and reports will be available in English and Chinese.
The surveys will collect data confidentially from a large sample of EMS companies worldwide on key financial and operational performance metrics, such as sales, orders, pre-tax earnings, cost of goods sold, inventory days of supply, cash-to-cash cycle, and return on value added. The aggregate results, along with analysis of trends and indicators, will be published in quarterly reports only for companies participating in the program. Results will be broken down by region and by company size wherever possible, provided that statistical integrity and confidentiality will not be compromised. IPC conducts its online surveys using a secure server and adhering to strict confidentiality policies. IPC publishes only aggregate data; no company-specific data is shared.
Published within one week of the close of each quarter’s survey, the Global EMS Statistical Program reports will be available only to participating companies.
