Jabil Posts Third Quarter Results

06/14/2018

Reaffirms EPS Targets for FY18 and FY19; Extends Capital Return Framework

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 14, 2018-- Jabil Inc. (NYSE: JBL), reported preliminary, unaudited financial results for its third quarter of fiscal year 2018.

Third Quarter of Fiscal Year 2018 Highlights:

  • Net revenue: $5.4 billion
  • Diversified Manufacturing Services (DMS) Year-on-year revenue growth: 36 percent
  • Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) Year-on-year revenue growth: 12 percent
  • U.S. GAAP operating income: $113.0 million
  • U.S. GAAP diluted earnings per share: $0.25
  • Core operating income (Non-GAAP): $150.1 million
  • Core diluted earnings per share (Non-GAAP): $0.46

“Our team achieved a strong third quarter characterized by solid revenue growth and core margin expansion, year-on-year, while navigating a challenging components market,” said CEO Mark Mondello. “Our DMS segment grew by 36 percent, well-ahead of expectations, and posted meaningful income growth on a yearly basis. Similarly, our EMS segment grew both revenue and earnings by double-digits during the quarter. Most importantly, these results reflect one of our most diversified earnings performances in recent memory giving us confidence in both our enterprise-level strategy and outlook,” he added.

Fourth Quarter of Fiscal Year 2018 Guidance:

• Net revenue   $5.2 billion to $5.6 billion
• U.S. GAAP operating income   $144 million to $199 million
• U.S. GAAP diluted earnings per share   $0.38 to $0.65 per diluted share
• Core operating income (Non-GAAP) (1)   $175 million to $225 million
• Core diluted earnings per share (Non-GAAP) (1)   $0.56 to $0.80 per diluted share
• Diversified Manufacturing Services   Consistent revenue year-on-year
• Electronics Manufacturing Services   Increase revenue 13 percent year-on-year
• Total company   Increase revenue 8 percent year-on-year

(1) Fourth quarter core operating income and core diluted earnings per share exclude anticipated adjustments of $8.6 million for amortization of intangibles (or $0.05 per diluted share), $15.4 million for stock-based compensation expense and related charges (or $0.09 per diluted share) and $7.0 million to $2.0 million for restructuring and related charges (or $0.04 to $0.01 per diluted share).

“Based on our strong year-to-date results and the guidance we’re providing today for the fourth fiscal quarter, we now expect fiscal 2018 revenue and core earnings per share growth of 14 percent and 23 percent, respectively, as we deliver on our core earnings per share target of $2.60. Additionally, given the confidence we have in delivering $3.00 per share in fiscal 2019 and the value we see in our business, we’ve elected to increase and extend our capital return framework through fiscal 2019. This updated capital return framework now perfectly aligns with the final portion of our three-year strategic plan, and reflects management’s confidence to generate additional cash flows on top of our desired investments for the business,” added Mondello.

Jabil’s Board Authorizes $350 Million Share Repurchase:

Since the inception of the Capital Return Framework in 2016, Jabil has repurchased $716 million in Jabil common stock and distributed $118 million to shareholders via its quarterly dividend. At the end of the third fiscal quarter, $134 million in capacity remains outstanding on our current share repurchase authorization that expires on August 31, 2018.

Today, Jabil is announcing that its Board of Directors has authorized an additional share repurchase program for the purchase of up to $350 million in Jabil common stock. The share repurchase authorization expires on August 31, 2019. The shares will be repurchased from time-to-time through various methods, including open market repurchases, at the Company's discretion and subject to market conditions and other factors.

(Definitions: “U.S. GAAP” means U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. Jabil defines core operating income as U.S. 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, goodwill impairment charges and business interruption and impairment charges, net. Jabil defines core earnings as U.S. 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, business interruption and impairment charges, net, impairment on securities, income (loss) from discontinued operations, gain (loss) 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 U.S. GAAP. Jabil reports core operating income, core earnings and core diluted and basic earnings per share to provide investors an additional method for assessing operating income, earnings and diluted earnings per share from what it believes are its core manufacturing operations. See the accompanying reconciliation of Jabil’s core operating income to its U.S. GAAP operating income, its calculation of core earnings and core diluted earnings per share to its U.S. GAAP net income and U.S. GAAP earnings per share and additional information in the supplemental information.)

Forward Looking Statements: This news release contains forward-looking statements, including those regarding our anticipated financial results for our third quarter of fiscal year 2018; our guidance for future financial performance in our fourth quarter of fiscal year 2018 (including net revenue, total company and segment revenue, U.S. GAAP operating income, U.S. GAAP diluted earnings per share, core operating income (Non-GAAP), and core diluted earnings per share (Non-GAAP) results and the components thereof, in each case for our fourth quarter of fiscal year 2018) and full year 2018 (net revenue, operating cash flows and core earnings per share (Non-GAAP)); and our plans to repurchase stock. The statements in this press release are based on current expectations, forecasts and assumptions involving risks and uncertainties that could cause actual outcomes and results to differ materially from our current expectations. Such factors include, but are not limited to: our determination as we finalize our financial results for our third quarter of fiscal year 2018 that our financial results and conditions differ from our current preliminary unaudited numbers set forth herein; unexpected, adverse seasonal impacts on demand; performance in the markets in which we operate; changes in macroeconomic conditions; the occurrence of, success and expected financial results from, product ramps; our ability to maintain and improve costs, quality and delivery for our customers; whether our restructuring activities and the realignment of our capacity will adversely affect our cost structure, ability to service customers and labor relations; reliance on a limited number of suppliers for critical components; changes in technology; competition; anticipated growth for us and our industry that may not occur; managing rapid growth; managing rapid declines in customer demand and other related customer challenges that may occur; our ability to successfully consummate acquisitions and divestitures; managing the integration of businesses we acquire; risks associated with international sales and operations; retaining key personnel; dependence on a limited number of large customers; and adverse changes in political conditions, in the U.S. and internationally, including, among others, adverse changes in tax laws and rates and our ability to estimate and manage their impact. Additional factors that could cause such differences can be found in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2017 and our other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We assume no obligation to update these forward-looking statements.

Supplemental Information Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures:Jabil provides supplemental, non-GAAP financial measures in this release to facilitate evaluation of Jabil’s core operating performance. These non-GAAP measures exclude certain amounts that are included in the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures, do not have standard meanings and may vary from the non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Management believes these “core” financial measures are useful measures that facilitate evaluation of the past and future performance of Jabil’s ongoing operations on a comparable basis.

Jabil reports core operating income, 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. Among other uses, management uses non-GAAP financial measures to make operating decisions, assess business performance and as a factor in determining certain employee performance when determining incentive compensation. The Company determines the tax effect of the items excluded from core earnings and core basic and diluted earnings per share based upon evaluation of the statutory tax treatment and the applicable tax rate of the jurisdiction in which the pre-tax items were incurred, and for which realization of the resulting tax benefit, if any, is expected. In certain jurisdictions where the Company does not expect to realize a tax benefit (due to existing tax incentives or a history of operating losses or other factors resulting in a valuation allowance related to deferred tax assets), a reduced or 0% tax rate is applied. Detailed definitions of certain of the core financial measures are included above under “Definitions” and a reconciliation of the disclosed core financial measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures is included under the heading “Supplemental Data” at the end of this release.
