Celestica's adjusted earnings, which the company considers a better measure of its operational performance, were $48.3-million or 21 cents per share.

That was up from $31.4-million or 14 cents per share of adjusted earnings in the second quarter of 2009 and within analyst expectations.

Celestica also announced it's acquiring Allied Panels, an engineering and manufacturing company focused on medical devices, and also buying back up to nine per cent of its shares from the open market over the coming year.
