Jabil Reports Third Quarter Results

16:02 EDT Wednesday, June 18, 2014

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (Business Wire) -- Today Jabil Circuit, Inc. (NYSE:JBL), announced preliminary, unaudited financial results for its third quarter of fiscal year 2014.

The company reported third quarter revenue of $3.8 billion.

Jabil's three reporting segments delivered the following revenue results for the company's third fiscal quarter:

  • Diversified Manufacturing Services: $1.6 billion.
  • Enterprise & Infrastructure: $1.3 billion.
  • High Velocity Systems: $0.9 billion.

Generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) operating loss for the third quarter was ($1.6) million and GAAP net diluted income per share was $0.93. The company indicated that $12.4 million in restructuring costs during the quarter negatively impacted GAAP operating income and that $238.5 million in gain on sale of discontinued operations, net of tax positively impacted GAAP net income.

Core operating income (as defined below) was $45.3 million and core diluted loss per share (as defined below) was ($0.06).

“Our third fiscal quarter performed largely as planned and is highlighted by a strong balance sheet performance, driven by significant cash flow from operations and a total cash position of $1.3 billion,” said Forbes Alexander, Chief Financial Officer. “We believe the strength of our balance sheet positions us well as we consider strategic investments in key growth areas in fiscal 2015,” he added.

(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, distressed customer charges, acquisition costs and certain purchase accounting adjustments, loss on disposal of subsidiaries, settlement of receivables and related charges, impairment of notes receivable and related charges and goodwill impairment charges. Jabil defines core earnings as GAAP net income before amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation expense and related charges, restructuring and related charges, distressed customer charges, acquisition costs and certain purchase accounting adjustments, loss on disposal of subsidiaries, settlement of receivables and related charges, impairment of notes receivable and related charges, goodwill impairment charges, income (loss) from discontinued operations, gain on sale of discontinued operations and 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 as determined under GAAP. Jabil calculates its 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.)

Jabil reports core operating income, core return on invested capital, core earnings and core diluted and basic earnings per share to provide investors an additional method for assessing operating income, earnings and earnings per share from what it believes are its core manufacturing operations.

CALCULATION OF RETURN ON INVESTED CAPITAL AND

CORE RETURN ON INVESTED CAPITAL

The Company calculates: (1) its "Return on Invested Capital" by annualizing its "after-tax GAAP operating income" for its most recently-ended quarter and dividing that by a two quarter average of its "net invested capital asset base" and (2) its "Core Return on Invested Capital" by annualizing its "after-tax non-GAAP core operating income" for its most recently-ended quarter and dividing that by a two quarter “average net invested capital asset base."

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" as its non-GAAP core operating income less a certain tax effect (the calculation of which is explained below). 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 its "average net invested capital asset base" as the sum of the averages (the calculations of which are explained below) of its stockholders' equity, current and non-current portions of its notes payable, long-term debt and capital lease obligations less the average (the calculation of which is explained below) of its cash and cash equivalents.

The following table reconciles (1) "Return on Invested Capital," as calculated using "after-tax GAAP operating income" to (2) "Core Return on Invested Capital," as calculated using "after-tax non-GAAP core operating income":

Return on Invested Capital (GAAP) (2.6 )% 10.5 %
Adjustments noted above 5.2 % 8.7 %
Core Return on Invested Capital (Non-GAAP) 2.6 % 19.2 %
 

(1) This amount is calculated by adding the amount of income taxes attributable to its operating income (GAAP) and its interest expense.

(2) This amount is calculated by adding the amount of income taxes attributable to its core operating income (Non-GAAP) and its interest expense.

(3) The average is based on the addition of the account balance at the end of the most recently-ended quarter to the account balance at the end of the prior quarter and dividing by two.
