DDi: Dynamic Once More

In news announced last night, Dynamic Details, aka DDi, remained profitable in the September quarter. Today’s picture of the quickturn PCB fabricator is much better than the one from a few years back, when the combination of poor management decisions and excessive M&A activity created a company that slid into Chapter 11 not once but twice.

Under president and CEO Mikel Williams, DDi has righted itself, and has turned a profit through the downturn, no small feat.

Today the company will hold its earnings call with analysts. Management will likely shed a little more light on its proposed purchase of Coretec. I’m anxious to see whether the Street responds with approval, or whether it takes the move as an harbinger of history repeating.
