Jabil Reports Second Quarter Results

Provides Solid Outlook for Fiscal 2015

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.--()--Today Jabil Circuit, Inc. (NYSE:JBL), announced preliminary, unaudited financial results for its second quarter of fiscal year 2014. As a result of the anticipated sale of Jabil’s aftermarket services business, this business is reported as "discontinued operations" in the unaudited financial results for all periods presented.

The company reported second quarter revenue of $3.6 billion.

Jabil’s three reporting segments delivered the following revenue results for the company’s second fiscal quarter:

  • Diversified Manufacturing Services: $1.6 billion.
  • Enterprise & Infrastructure: $1.2 billion.
  • High Velocity Systems: $0.8 billion.

Generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) operating income for the second quarter was $3.6 million and GAAP net diluted loss per share was ($0.19). The company indicated that $32.2 million in restructuring costs during the quarter impacted GAAP operating income.

As defined below, core operating income was $60.4 million and core diluted earnings per share was $0.10.

“We completed our second quarter largely as planned, with steady progress on finalizing our previously announced divestiture and winding down our relationship with our second largest customer,” said Mark T. Mondello, Chief Executive Officer. “The steadfast dedication of our global workforce has contributed to our ongoing performance despite the challenges we have faced,” 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, 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, income (loss) from discontinued operations, 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.)

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 of its "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" 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, long-term debt and capital lease obligations and (3) the current portion 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":

Core Return on Invested Capital (Non-GAAP) 6.2 % 17.7 %

(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.
