Jabil Posts Second Quarter Results16:02 EDT Wednesday, March 20, 2013 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (Business Wire) -- Today Jabil Circuit, Inc. (NYSE: JBL), announced preliminary, unaudited financial results for its second quarter of fiscal year 2013. For the quarter, Jabil reported revenue of $4.4 billion, an increase of 4.3 percent over the second quarter of fiscal 2012. “We are pleased with these results for the quarter, despite the obviously challenging macro environment,” said Jabil's Chief Executive Officer, Mark T. Mondello. “During the quarter we made great progress on the Nypro acquisition and believe the market opportunities of our combined capabilities are considerable,” said Mondello. “We look forward to a successful completion of this deal in our fourth fiscal quarter.” Jabil's three reporting segments delivered the following year over year revenue results: Diversified Manufacturing Services grew 11 percent. Enterprise & Infrastructure increased 12 percent. High Velocity declined 15 percent. Generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) operating income for the second quarter of fiscal year 2013 was $149 million and GAAP diluted earnings per share were $0.43 cents. Core operating income results excluding amortization of intangibles and stock-based compensation was $170 million and core diluted earnings per share was $0.53 cents. Acquisition-related expenses were $5 million above the company's second quarter forecast. This portion of the expenses was originally forecasted to be incurred during Jabil's third fiscal quarter. (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 impairment charges, goodwill impairment charges, certain distressed customer charges, settlement of receivables and related charges and loss on disposal of subsidiaries. Jabil defines core earnings as GAAP net income before amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation expense and related charges, restructuring and impairment charges, goodwill impairment charges, certain distressed customer charges, settlement of receivables and related charges, loss on disposal of subsidiaries, 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.)Quarterly Results   Q2 2013   Q2 2012 Net revenue $4.4 billion $4.2 billion GAAP operating income $149.0 million $150.2 million GAAP net income $88.5 million $97.7 million GAAP diluted earnings per share $0.43 $0.46 GAAP return on invested capital 16.9% 20.5% Core operating income $170.2 million $176.2 million Core earnings $109.3 million $123.2 million Core diluted earnings per share $0.53 $0.58 Core return on invested capital 19.9% 24.6% Fiscal Q3 2013 Guidance   Net revenue $4.3 billion to $4.5 billion Core operating income $165 million to $185 million Core earnings per share $0.50 to $0.58 per diluted share GAAP operating income $144 million to $164 million GAAP earnings per share $0.40 to $0.48 per diluted share (GAAP earnings per share for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 are currently estimated to include $0.02 per share for amortization of intangibles and $0.08 per share for stock-based compensation) Segment Revenue Guidance: Diversified Manufacturing Services to remain consistent.

The Company calculates: (1) its "after-tax GAAP operating income" by subtracting a certain tax effect (the calculation of which is explained below) from its GAAP operating income and (2) its "after-tax non-GAAP core operating income" by subtracting a certain tax effect (the calculation of which is explained below) from its non-GAAP core operating income. See elsewhere in this earnings release for a reconciliation of the Company's non-GAAP core operating income to its GAAP operating income. The Company calculates "net invested capital asset base" as the sum of the averages (the calculations of which are explained below) of (1) its stockholders' equity, (2) the non-current portion of its notes payable and long term debt and (3) the current portion of its notes payable and long term debt, less the average (the calculation of which is explained below) of its cash and cash equivalents.
