“We had an excellent quarter. The employees at Espey continue to work very hard in a difficult and frustrating business environment. Their hard work and determination delivered solid financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2022. New orders remained strong and earnings are much improved over the prior year results.
Material lead times and inflation became worse and continue to provide significant headwinds to the business as we move forward. We will continue to manage our way through this environment and will work with our customers and suppliers to improve the long term financial performance of the Company.”
