St. Petersburg, FL - September 25, 2013...Today Jabil Circuit, Inc. (NYSE: JBL), announced preliminary, unaudited financial results for its fourth quarter and full fiscal year, ended August 31, 2013.
"Delivering record revenues, generating more than a billion dollars of cash flow from operations, and achieving a core return on invested capital of 21 percent are clear highlights of our fiscal year," said Jabil's Chief Executive Officer Mark Mondello. "In addition, we are pleased to return nearly $200 million in capital to shareholders through dividends and share repurchases, while continuing to thoughtfully invest capital back into the business, both organically and acquisitively, with an eye on long-term earnings growth," said Mondello.
The company reported fourth quarter revenue of $4.8 billion and fiscal year revenue of $18.3 billion.
Jabil's three reporting segments delivered the following revenue results for the company's fourth fiscal quarter:
"I would like to acknowledge the continued dedication of our employees because it is their efforts and commitment that truly differentiate Jabil and enable us to achieve our goals," said Mondello.
Generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) operating income for the fourth quarter was $88.4 million and $511.4 million for the full fiscal year, ended August 31, 2013. GAAP diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter were $0.61 and $1.79 for the fiscal year. The company said that $89.5 million in restructuring activity during the year and a $25.6 million non-cash charge related to a note receivable and related charges in the third quarter impacted the fiscal year GAAP operating income and $61.1 million in restructuring activity impacted the fourth quarter GAAP operating income.
Core operating income results, excluding amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation and related charges, restructuring and related charges, impairment of notes receivable and related charges and acquisition costs and purchase accounting adjustments, was $721.1 million and core diluted earnings per share was $2.26.
(Definitions used: "GAAP" means U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. Jabil defines core operating income as GAAP operating income before amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation expense and related charges, restructuring and related charges, impairment of notes receivable and related charges, goodwill impairment charges, certain distressed customer charges, settlement of receivables and related charges, loss on disposal of subsidiaries and acquisition costs and purchase accounting adjustments. Jabil defines core earnings as GAAP net income before amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation expense and related charges, restructuring and related charges, impairment of notes receivable and related charges, goodwill impairment charges, certain distressed customer charges, settlement of receivables and related charges, loss on disposal of subsidiaries, acquisition costs and purchase accounting adjustments, certain other expenses, net of tax and certain deferred tax valuation allowance charges. Jabil defines core diluted earnings per share as core earnings divided by the weighted average number of outstanding diluted shares determined under GAAP. Jabil calculates core return on invested capital by annualizing its after-tax core operating income for its most recently-ended quarter and dividing that by a two quarter average net invested capital base. Jabil reports core operating income, core earnings, core diluted and basic earnings per share and core return on invested capital to provide investors an additional method for assessing operating income, earnings, diluted earnings per share and return on invested capital from what it believes are its core manufacturing operations. See the accompanying reconciliation of Jabil's core operating income to its GAAP operating income, its calculation of core earnings and core diluted earnings per share to its GAAP net income and GAAP earnings per share, its calculation of core return on invested capital and additional information in the supplemental information.)
"We are fortunate to have a strong balance sheet, broad-based capabilities that deliver innovative solutions, outstanding employees and a roster of market-leading customers as we head into fiscal year 2014," said Jabil CEO, Mark Mondello. Jabil provided guidance for its first fiscal quarter of 2014, which began on September 1st.
(GAAP earnings per share for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 are currently estimated to include $0.03 per share for amortization of intangibles, $0.09 per share for stock-based compensation and $0.13 per share for restructuring and related charges.)
