THE COMPANY We are one of the leading worldwide independent providers of electronic manufacturing services ("EMS"). We design and manufacture electronic circuit board assemblies and systems for major original equipment manufacturers ("OEMs") in the communications, computer, peripherals, automotive and consumer products industries. We serve our OEM customers with dedicated work cell business units that combine high volume, highly automated continuous flow manufacturing with advanced electronic design and design for manufacturability technologies. Our customers currently include industry leaders such as Cisco Systems, Inc., Dell Computer Corporation, Hewlett-Packard Company, Johnson Controls, Inc., Lucent Technologies and Marconi plc. For the fiscal year ended August 31, 2001, we achieved net revenues of approximately $4.3 billion and net income of $118.5 million. The EMS industry has experienced rapid growth over the past several years as an increasing number of OEMs have outsourced their manufacturing requirements. OEMs are turning to outsourcing in order to 1

reduce product cost, achieve accelerated time-to-market and time-to-volume production, access advanced design and manufacturing technologies, improve inventory management and purchasing power, reduce their capital investment in manufacturing facilities, and achieve parallel manufacturing of the same product throughout the world. We believe further growth opportunities exist for EMS providers to penetrate the worldwide electronics markets. We offer our customers significant turnkey EMS solutions that are responsive to their outsourcing needs. Our work cell business units are capable of providing: - integrated design and engineering services - component selection, sourcing and procurement - automated assembly - design and implementation of product testing - parallel global production - systems assembly and direct order fulfillment services - repair and warranty services We currently conduct our operations in facilities that are located in the United States, Belgium, Brazil, China, England, Hungary, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, and Scotland. Our parallel global production strategy provides our customers with the benefits of improved supply-chain management, reduced inventory obsolescence, lowered transportation costs and reduced product fulfillment time. Our principal executive offices are located at 10560 Ninth Street North, St. Petersburg, Florida 33716, and our telephone number is (727) 577-9749. Our website is located at www.jabil.com. Information contained in our website is not a part of this document or the documents incorporated by reference in this document. EMS INDUSTRY BACKGROUND The EMS industry is composed of companies that provide a range of manufacturing services for OEMs in the electronics industry. The EMS industry has experienced rapid growth over the past several years as an increasing number of OEMs have chosen an external manufacturing strategy. This growth has been impacted by OEMs divesting of internal manufacturing capacity. Factors driving OEMs to favor outsourcing to EMS providers include: - Reduced Product Cost. EMS providers are able to manufacture products at a reduced total cost to OEMs. These cost advantages result from higher utilization of capacity because of diversified product demand and, typically, a higher sensitivity to elements of cost. - Accelerated Product Time-to-Market and Time-to-Volume. EMS providers are able to deliver accelerated production start-ups and achieve high efficiencies in transferring new products into production. EMS providers are also able to rapidly scale production for changing markets and to position themselves in global locations that serve the leading world markets. With increasingly shorter product life cycles, these key services allow new products to be sold in the marketplace in an accelerated time frame. - Access to Advanced Technologies. Customers of EMS providers gain access to advanced technologies in manufacturing processes, as well as product and production design. Product and production design services may offer customers significant improvements in the performance, cost, time-to-market and manufacturability of their products. - Improved Inventory Management and Purchasing Power. EMS providers are able to manage both procurement and inventory, and have demonstrated proficiency in purchasing components at 2

improved pricing due to the scale of the operations and continuous interaction with the materials marketplace. - Reduced Capital Investment in Manufacturing. OEMs are increasingly seeking to lower their investment in inventory, facilities and equipment used in manufacturing in order to allocate capital to other activities such as sales and marketing, and research and development. This shift in capital deployment has placed a greater emphasis on outsourcing to external manufacturing specialists. OUR STRATEGY We are focused on expanding our position as one of the leading global providers of electronic manufacturing services to major OEMs. To achieve this objective, we will continue implementing the following strategies: - Establish and Maintain Long-Term Customer Relationships. Our core strategy is to establish and maintain long-term relationships with leading electronics companies in expanding industries with the size and growth characteristics that can benefit from highly automated, continuous flow and global manufacturing. Historically, we have derived a majority of our growth from existing customers. We focus on maintaining long-term relationships with our customers and seek to expand such relationships to include additional product lines and services. In addition, we have a focused effort to identify and develop relationships with new customers who meet our profile. - Utilize Work Cell Business Units. Each of our work cell business units is dedicated to one customer and operates with a high level of autonomy, utilizing dedicated production equipment, production workers, supervisors, buyers, planners and engineers. We believe our work cell business units promote increased responsiveness to our customers' needs, particularly as a customer relationship grows to multiple production locations. - Expand Parallel Global Production. Our ability to produce the same product on a global scale is a significant requirement of our customers. We believe that parallel global production is a key strategy to reduce obsolescence risk and secure the lowest landed costs while simultaneously supplying products of equivalent or comparable quality throughout the world. Consistent with this strategy, we have acquired facilities in the United Kingdom and Italy. - Offer Systems Assembly and Direct Order Fulfillment. Our systems assembly and direct order fulfillment services allow our customers to reduce product cost and risk of product obsolescence by reducing total work-in-process and finished goods inventory. We offer these services at all of our manufacturing locations. - Pursue Selective Acquisition Opportunities. An increasing number of OEMs are divesting internal manufacturing operations to EMS providers. In many of these situations, the OEM enters into a customer relationship with the EMS provider that acquires the operations. Our acquisition strategy is focused on obtaining OEM manufacturing operations with consistent growth, experienced management teams, and opportunities for long-term outsourcing relationships. See "Factors Affecting Future Results -- We may not achieve expected profitability from our acquisitions." OUR APPROACH TO MANUFACTURING In order to achieve high levels of manufacturing performance, we have adopted the following approach: - Work Cell Business Units. Each of our work cell business units is dedicated to one customer and is empowered to formulate strategies tailored to its customer's needs. Each work cell business unit has dedicated production lines consisting of equipment, production workers, supervisors and engineers. Work cell business units have direct responsibility for manufacturing results and time-to-volume production, promoting a sense of individual commitment and ownership. The work cell 3

business unit approach is modular and enables us to grow incrementally without disrupting the operations of other work cell business units. - Business Unit Management. Our Business Unit Managers coordinate all financial, manufacturing and engineering commitments for each of our customers at a particular manufacturing facility. Our Business Unit Directors oversee local Business Unit Managers and coordinate on a worldwide basis all financial, manufacturing and engineering commitments for each of our customers that have both domestic and global production requirements. Jabil's Business Unit Management has the authority to develop customer relationships, make design strategy decisions and production commitments, establish pricing and implement production and electronic design changes. Business Unit Managers and Directors are also responsible for assisting customers with strategic planning for future products, including developing cost and technology goals. These Managers and Directors operate autonomously, with responsibility for the development of customer relationships and direct profit and loss accountability for work cell business unit performance. - Continuous Flow. We use a highly automated, "continuous flow" approach where different pieces of equipment are joined directly or by conveyor to create an in-line assembly process. This process is in contrast to a "batch" approach, where individual pieces of assembly equipment are operated as freestanding work-centers. The elimination of waiting time prior to sequential operations results in faster manufacturing, which improves production efficiencies and quality control, and reduces inventory work-in-process. Continuous flow manufacturing provides significant cost reduction and quality improvement when applied to volume manufacturing. - Computer Integration. We support all aspects of our manufacturing activities with advanced computerized control and monitoring systems. Component inspection and vendor qualities are monitored electronically in real-time. Materials planning, purchasing, stockroom and shop floor control systems are supported through a computerized Manufacturing Resource Planning system, providing customers with a continuous ability to monitor material availability and track work-in-process on a real-time basis. Manufacturing processes are supported by a real-time, computerized statistical process control system, whereby customers can remotely access our computer systems to monitor real-time yields, inventory positions, work-in-process status and vendor quality data. See "Technology" and "Factors Affecting Future Results -- Any delay in integrating our new information systems could disrupt our operations and cause unanticipated increases in our cost." - Supply Chain Management. We utilize an electronic commerce system/electronic data interchange ("EDI") and web-based tools with our customers and suppliers to implement a variety of supply chain management programs. Our customers utilize these tools to share demand and product forecasts and deliver purchase orders. We use these tools with our suppliers for just-in-time delivery, supplier-managed inventory and consigned supplier-managed inventory. OUR DESIGN SERVICES We offer a wide spectrum of value-added design services for products that we manufacture for our customers. We provide these services to enhance our relationships with current customers and to help develop relationships with new customers. During fiscal year 2001, over one-half of our customers shipped product incorporating Jabil design. We offer the following design services: Electronic Design. Our electronic design team provides electronic circuit design services including application specific integrated circuit design and firmware development. These services have been used to develop a variety of circuit designs for cellular telephone accessories, notebook and personal computers, servers, radio frequency products, video set-top boxes, optical communications, personal digital assistants, communication broadband products and automotive and consumer appliance controls. Industrial Design Services. Our industrial team assists in designing the "look and feel" of the plastic and metal enclosures that house printed circuit board assemblies and systems. 4

Mechanical Design. Our mechanical engineering team specializes in three-dimensional design and analysis of electronic and optical assemblies using state of the art modeling and analytical tools. The mechanical team has extended Jabil's product offering capabilities to include all aspects of industrial design, advance mechanism development and tooling management. They are staffed to support Jabil customers for all development projects including turnkey system design and design for manufacturing ("DFM") activities. CAD Design. Our CAD ("Computer Assisted Design") design team provides printed circuit board ("PCB") design and other related services. These services include PCB design services using advanced CAD/CAE ("Computer Assisted Engineering") tools, PCB design testing and verification services, and other consulting services, which includes the generation of a bill of materials, approved vendor list and assembly equipment configuration for a particular PCB design. We believe that our CAD design services result in PCB designs that are optimized for manufacturability and cost and accelerate the time-to-market and time-to-volume production. Applied R&D. The goal of Jabil's applied R&D group is to make Jabil more profitable by pairing with our OEM partners and establishing new product roadmaps. Applied R&D is a launching pad for new ideas and products in specific growth areas. This team provides system-based solutions to engineering problems and challenges. OUR SYSTEMS ASSEMBLY, TEST AND DIRECT ORDER FULFILLMENT SERVICES We offer systems assembly, test and direct order fulfillment services to our customers. Our systems assembly services extend our range of assembly activities to include assembly of higher-level sub-systems and systems incorporating multiple printed circuit boards. We maintain significant systems assembly capacity to meet the increasing demands of our customers. In addition, we provide testing services, based on quality assurance programs developed with our customers, of the printed circuit boards, sub-systems and systems products that we manufacture. Our quality assurance programs include circuit testing under various environmental conditions to try to ensure that our products meet or exceed required customer specifications. We also offer direct order fulfillment services for delivery of final products we assemble for our customers. OUR REPAIR AND WARRANTY SERVICES As an extension of our manufacturing model and an enhancement to our total global solution, we offer repair and warranty services to our customers from strategic logistics hub locations. We have the ability to service our OEM partner's product following completion of the traditional manufacturing and fulfillment process. TECHNOLOGY We believe that our manufacturing and testing technologies are among the most advanced in the industry. Through our research and development efforts, we intend to continue to offer our customers among the most advanced high volume, continuous flow manufacturing process technologies. These technologies include surface mount technology, tape automated bonding, ball grid array, chip scale packages, flip chip/direct chip attach, thin substrate processes, reflow solder of mixed technology circuit boards and other testing and emerging interconnect technologies. In addition to our research and development activities, we are continuously making refinements to our existing manufacturing processes in connection with providing manufacturing services to our customers. See "Factors Affecting Future Results -- Failure to maintain our technological and manufacturing process expertise could harm our results of operations." RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT To meet our customers' increasingly sophisticated needs, we continually engage in research and development activities. The development and refinement of new manufacturing processes are performed 5

primarily at our advanced engineering facility in San Jose, California and supplemented with additional resources in St. Petersburg, Florida. These efforts consist of design of the circuit board assembly, mechanical design and the related production design necessary to manufacture the circuit board assembly in the most cost-effective and reliable manner. Additional research and development efforts have focused on new optical, test engineering, RF ("radio frequency") and wireless failure analysis technologies. The Company is also engaged in the research and development of new products including optical products, network infrastructure systems, next-generation portable communication devices, wireless and broadband access products. See "Factors Affecting Future Results -- Failure to maintain our technological and manufacturing process expertise could harm our results of operations." For fiscal years 2001, 2000 and 1999, we expended $6.4 million, $4.8 million and $5.9 million, respectively, on research and development activities. To date, substantially all of our research and development expenditures have related to internal research and development activities. CUSTOMERS AND MARKETING Our core strategy is to establish and maintain long-term relationships with leading electronics companies in expanding industries with the size and growth characteristics that benefit from highly automated continuous flow and global manufacturing. A small number of customers and significant industries have historically comprised a major portion of our net revenue. The table below sets forth the respective portion of net revenue for the applicable period attributable to our customers who individually accounted for approximately 10% or more of our net revenue in any respective period:

YEAR ENDED AUGUST 31, ----------------------- 2001 2000 1999 ----- ----- ----- Cisco Systems, Inc.......................................... 23% 20% 18% Dell Computer Corporation................................... 14% 16% * Hewlett-Packard Company..................................... * 14% 22% Lucent Technologies......................................... * 10% *
- --------------- * less than 10% of net revenues Jabil's revenue was distributed over the following significant industries for the periods indicated:
YEAR ENDED AUGUST 31, ----------------------- 2001 2000 1999 ----- ----- ----- Communications.............................................. 51% 44% 39% Computer Peripherals........................................ 19% 21% 37% Personal Computers.......................................... 16% 21% 10% Automotive and other........................................ 14% 14% 14% --- --- --- 100% 100% 100% === === ===
In fiscal year 2001, 30 customers accounted for more than 95% of our net revenue. We expect to continue to depend upon a relatively small number of customers for a significant percentage of our net revenue. As illustrated in the two tables above, the historic percentages of net revenue we have received from specific customers or significant industries have varied substantially from year to year. Accordingly, these historic percentages are not necessarily indicative of the percentage of net revenue that we may receive from any customer or industry in the future. In the past, some of our customers have terminated their manufacturing arrangements with us or have significantly reduced or delayed the volume of manufacturing services ordered from us. We cannot assure you that present or future customers will not terminate their manufacturing arrangements with us or significantly change, reduce or delay the amount of manufacturing services ordered from us. If they do, it could have a material adverse effect on our results of operations. See "Factors Affecting Future Results -- Because we depend on a limited number of 6

customers, a reduction in sales to any one of our customers could cause a significant decline in our revenue" and Note 7 to the Consolidated Financial Statements. Our principal source of new business is the expansion of existing customer relationships to include additional product lines and services, referrals and direct sales through our Business Unit Managers and Directors and executive staff. Our Business Unit Managers and Directors, supported by the executive staff, identify and attempt to develop relationships with new customers who meet our profile. This profile includes financial stability, need for technology-driven turnkey manufacturing, anticipated unit volume and long-term relationship stability. Unlike traditional sales managers, our Business Unit Managers and Directors are responsible for ongoing management of production for their customers. INTERNATIONAL OPERATIONS A key element in our strategy is to provide localized production of global products produced for OEMs in the major consuming regions of the United States and Latin America, Europe and Asia. Consistent with this strategy, we have established or acquired manufacturing and/or repair facilities in Belgium, Brazil, China, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Scotland and England. In addition, a sales office has been established in Japan. Our European facilities located in Belgium, Italy, Hungary, Ireland, Scotland and England, target existing European customers, North American customers having significant sales in Europe and potential European customers who meet our customer profile. Our Asian facilities, located in China and Malaysia, enable us to provide local manufacturing services to the Asian market in order to reduce costs, freight and duties, to provide a more competitive cost structure for these markets and to serve as a low cost manufacturing source for new and existing customers. See "Factors Affecting Future Results -- We derive a substantial portion of our revenues from our international operations, which are subject to greater volatility and often require more management time and expense to achieve profitability than our domestic operations" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations." FINANCIAL INFORMATION ABOUT BUSINESS SEGMENTS We have identified our global presence as a key to assessing our business performance. While the services provided, the manufacturing process, class of customers and the order fulfillment process is similar across manufacturing locations, we evaluate our business performance on an increasingly regional basis. Accordingly, our operating segments consist of the United States, Latin America, Europe and Asia regions. See note 7 to the Consolidated Financial Statements. COMPETITION The EMS industry is highly competitive. We compete against numerous domestic and foreign manufacturers, including Celestica, Inc., Flextronics International, Sanmina Corporation, SCI Systems, Inc. and Solectron Corporation. In addition, we may in the future encounter competition from other large electronic manufacturers that are selling, or may begin to sell, electronic manufacturing services. Most of our competitors have international operations and some have substantially greater manufacturing, financial, research and development and marketing resources than Jabil. We also face potential competition from the manufacturing operations of our current and potential customers, who are continually evaluating the merits of manufacturing products internally versus the advantages of outsourcing to us. We believe that the primary basis of competition in our targeted markets are capability, price, manufacturing quality, advanced manufacturing technology, design expertise, time-to-volume production, reliable delivery and regionally dispersed manufacturing. Management believes we currently compete favorably with respect to these factors. See "Factors Affecting Future Results -- We compete with 7

numerous providers of electronic manufacturing services, including our current or potential customers who may decide to manufacture all of their products internally." BACKLOG Our order backlog at August 31, 2001 was approximately $799.4 million, compared to backlog of $1.2 billion at August 31, 2000. Although our backlog consists of firm purchase orders, the level of backlog at any particular time is not necessarily indicative of future sales. Given the nature of our relationships with our customers, we frequently allow our customers to cancel or reschedule deliveries, and therefore, backlog is not a meaningful indicator of future financial results. Although we may seek to negotiate fees to cover the costs of such cancellations or rescheduling, we may not be successful in doing so. See "Factors Affecting Future Results -- Most of our customers do not commit to long-term production schedules, which makes it difficult for us to schedule production and achieve maximum efficiency of our manufacturing capacity." COMPONENTS PROCUREMENT We procure components from a broad group of suppliers, determined on an assembly-by-assembly basis. Almost all of the products we manufacture require one or more components that are ordered from only one source, and most assemblies require components that are available from only a single source. Some of these components are allocated in response to supply shortages. We attempt to ensure continuity of supply of these components. In cases where unanticipated customer demand or supply shortages occur, we attempt to arrange for alternative sources of supply, where available, or defer planned production to meet the anticipated availability of the critical component. In some cases, supply shortages will substantially curtail production of all assemblies using a particular component. In addition, at various times there have been industry wide shortages of electronic components, particularly of memory and logic devices. We cannot assure you that such shortfalls will not have a material adverse effect on our results of operations in the future. See "Factors Affecting Future Results -- We depend on a limited number of suppliers for components that are critical to our manufacturing process. A shortage of these components or an increase in their price could interrupt our operations and reduce our profits." PROPRIETARY RIGHTS We regard our manufacturing processes and electronic designs as proprietary trade secrets and confidential information. To protect our proprietary rights, we rely largely upon a combination of trade secret laws; non-disclosure agreements with our customers, employees, and suppliers; our internal security systems; confidentiality procedures and employee confidentiality agreements. Although we take steps to protect our trade secrets, misappropriation may still occur. We currently have various patents. However, we believe that the rapid pace of technological change makes patent protection less significant than such factors as the knowledge and experience of management and personnel and our ability to develop, enhance and market manufacturing services. We license some technology from third parties that we use in providing manufacturing services to our customers. We believe that such licenses are generally available on commercial terms from a number of licensors. Generally, the agreements governing such technology grant us non-exclusive, worldwide licenses with respect to the subject technology and terminate upon a material breach by us. We believe that our electronic designs and manufacturing processes do not infringe on the proprietary rights of third parties. However, if third parties assert valid infringement claims against us with respect to past, current or future designs or processes, we could be required to enter into an expensive royalty arrangement, develop non-infringing designs or processes, or engage in costly litigation. 8

EMPLOYEES As of August 31, 2001, we had 17,097 full-time employees, compared to 19,115 full-time employees at August 31, 2000. We believe our employee relations are good. GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION The information regarding revenue, operating profit and identifiable assets set forth in Note 7 to the Consolidated Financial Statements, is hereby incorporated by reference into this Part I, Item 1. ENVIRONMENTAL We are subject to a variety of federal, state, local and foreign environmental regulations relating to the use, storage, discharge and disposal of hazardous chemicals used during our manufacturing process. Although we believe that we are currently in substantial compliance with all material environmental regulations, any failure to comply with present and future regulations could subject us to future liabilities or the suspension of production. In addition, such regulations could restrict our ability to expand our facilities or could require us to acquire costly equipment or to incur other significant expense to comply with environmental regulations. See "Factors Affecting Future Results -- Compliance or the failure to comply with current and future environmental regulations could cause us significant expense." ITEM 2. PROPERTIES We have manufacturing and support facilities located in the United States, Belgium, Brazil, China, England, Hungary, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico and Scotland.

- --------------- (1) During 2001, we recorded charges of $6.6 million ($4.1 million after-tax) related to the acquisition of certain manufacturing facilities of Marconi Communications. We also recorded charges of $27.4 million ($21.6 million after-tax) related to restructuring of our business and other non-recurring charges during our fiscal year. Operating income excluding these charges was $197.7 million. Net income excluding these charges was $144.3 million and diluted earnings per share was $0.71. (2) During 2000, we recorded additional merger-related charges of $5.2 million ($4.7 million after-tax) in connection with the merger with GET ("GET Merger"). Operating income excluding this charge was $218.1 million. Net income excluding this charge was $150.3 million and diluted earnings per share was $0.80. (3) During 1999, we recorded a merger-related charge of $7.0 million ($6.5 million after-tax) in connection with the GET Merger. During March 1999, we also recorded the write-off of impaired goodwill of a GET subsidiary of $3.6 million ($3.3 million after-tax). As a result of the overlapping period created when GET's fiscal year was conformed to an August 31 year-end, the write-off falls into the results of operations for both years ended August 31, 1999 and 1998. Stockholders' equity was adjusted so that the duplicate amount is reflected only once in retained earnings. Operating income excluding these charges was $146.5 million for the year ended August 31, 1999. Net income excluding these charges was $94.6 million and diluted earnings per share was $0.54. (4) In connection with the acquisition of certain assets of the LaserJet Formatter Manufacturing Organization of the Hewlett-Packard Company, (the "HP Acquisition"), we recorded an acquisition-related charge of $20.8 million ($12.9 million after-tax). During March 1999, we also recorded the write-off of impaired goodwill of a GET subsidiary of $3.6 million ($3.3 million after-tax). As a result of the overlapping period created when GET's fiscal year was conformed to an August 31 year end, this charge is included in the operating results of the year ended August 31, 1998. Operating income excluding these charges was $111.1 million. Net income excluding this charge was $73.7 million and diluted earnings per share was $0.45. (5) Gives effect to two-for-one stock splits in the form of 100% stock dividends to stockholders of record on March 23, 2000 and on February 5, 1999. 13

You should read this document and the documents that we incorporate by reference into this Annual Report on Form 10-K completely and with the understanding that our actual future results may be materially different from what we expect. We may not update these forward-looking statements, even if our situation changes in the future. All forward-looking statements attributable to us are expressly qualified by these cautionary statements. Jabil is one of the leading worldwide independent providers of turnkey manufacturing services to electronics OEMs in the communications, computer, peripherals, automotive and consumer products industries. While operating income and net income decreased in fiscal year 2001, Jabil has historically experienced substantial growth in net revenue, operating income and net income. This growth, as well as the growth of the overall EMS industry, has been driven by the increasing number of electronics OEMs who are outsourcing their manufacturing requirements. We anticipate that this industry trend will continue during the next several years. We derive most of our net revenue under purchase orders from OEM customers. We recognize revenue, net of product return and warranty costs, typically at the time of product shipment. The volume and timing of orders placed by our customers vary due to several factors, including: variation in demand for our customers' products; our customers' inventory management; new product introductions and manufacturing strategy changes; and consolidations among our customers. Demand for our customers' products depends on, among other things, product life cycles, competitive conditions and general economic conditions. 14

Our cost of revenue includes the cost of electronic components and other materials that comprise the products we manufacture, the cost of labor and manufacturing overhead, and provisions for excess and obsolete inventory adjustments. As a provider of turnkey manufacturing services, we are responsible for procuring components and other materials. This requires us to commit significant working capital to our operations and to manage the purchasing, receiving, inspection and stocking of materials. Although we bear the risk of fluctuations in the cost of materials and excess scrap, we periodically negotiate cost of materials adjustments with our customers. Net revenue from each product that we manufacture consists of a component based on the costs of materials in that product and a component based on the labor and manufacturing overhead allocation to that product. We refer to the portion of the sales price of a product that is based on labor and manufacturing overhead costs as "manufacturing-based revenue," and to the portion of the sales price of a product that is based on materials costs as "material-based revenue." Our gross margin for any product depends on the mix between the cost of materials in the product and the cost of labor and manufacturing overhead allocated to the product. We typically realize higher gross margins on manufacturing-based revenue than we do on materials-based revenue. As we gain experience in manufacturing a product, we usually achieve increased efficiencies, which result in lower labor costs and manufacturing overhead for that product. Our operating results are impacted by the level of capacity utilization of manufacturing facilities, indirect labor and selling, general and administrative expenses. Gross margins and operating income margins have generally improved during periods of high volume and high capacity utilization. During periods of low volume production, we generally have idle capacity and reduced operating margins. As our capacity has grown during recent years, through the construction of new greenfield facilities, the expansion of existing facilities and our acquisition of additional facilities, our selling, general and administrative expenses have increased to support this growth. We have consistently utilized advanced circuit design, production design and manufacturing technologies to meet the needs of our customers. To support this effort, our engineering staff focuses on developing and refining design and manufacturing technologies to meet specific needs of specific customers. Most of the expenses associated with these customer-specific efforts are reflected in our cost of revenue. In addition, our engineers engage in research and development of new technologies that apply generally to our operations. The expense of these research and development activities are reflected in the "Research and Development" line item in our Consolidated Financial Statements. An important element of our strategy is the expansion of our global production facilities. Substantially all of our revenue and materials costs worldwide are denominated in U.S. dollars, while our labor and utility costs in plants outside the United Sates are denominated in local currencies. We occasionally hedge these local currency costs, based on our evaluation of the potential exposure as compared to the cost of the hedge, through the purchase of foreign exchange contracts, the amount and cost of which have not been material. Changes in the fair market value of such hedging instruments are included in other comprehensive income: See Note 1(p) to the Consolidated Financial Statements. We continue to depend upon a relatively small number of customers for a significant percentage of our net revenue. Significant reductions in sales to any of our large customers would have a material adverse effect on our results of operations. In the past, some of our customers have terminated their manufacturing arrangements with us, and other customers have significantly reduced or delayed the volume of manufacturing services ordered from us. There can be no assurance that present or future customers will not terminate their manufacturing arrangements with us or significantly change, reduce or delay the amount of manufacturing services ordered from us. Any such termination of a manufacturing relationship or change, reduction or delay in orders could have an adverse effect on our results of operations or financial condition. See Note 7 to the Consolidated Financial Statements. 15

ACQUISITIONS AND EXPANSION On September 1, 1999 we acquired, through our Jabil Global Services subsidiary, the net assets of EFTC Services, Inc., an electronic product service and repair business. Jabil Global Services, Inc. continues to offer repair and warranty services for existing and future customers from its hub-based operations in Memphis, Tennessee; Louisville, Kentucky; and Tampa, Florida. The purchase price of approximately $28 million was paid in cash. The acquisition was accounted for as a purchase and resulted in approximately $19 million of goodwill, which is being amortized, on a straight-line basis over a period of 15 years. The consolidated financial statements include the operating results of the acquired business from the date of acquisition. On September 13, 1999 we issued approximately 10.2 million shares of our common stock for all the outstanding common stock of GET Manufacturing, Inc., a China-based electronics manufacturing services provider. The business combination was accounted for as a pooling-of-interests and, accordingly, our historical consolidated financial statements presented herein have been restated to include the accounts and results of operations of GET Manufacturing, Inc. In connection with the merger, we recorded acquisition-related charges of $7.0 million ($6.5 million after-tax) and $5.2 million ($4.7 million after-tax) in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 1999 and the first quarter of fiscal year 2000, respectively, consisting of key employee severance and legal and professional fees associated with the merger. On February 1, 2000, we acquired the net assets of Bull Information Technology, an electronic manufacturing service provider. The business operates in the city of Contagem, State of Minas Gerais, in the Belo Horizonte region Brazil. The purchase price of approximately $6 million was paid in cash. The acquisition was accounted for as a purchase and resulted in approximately $5 million of goodwill, which is being amortized, on a straight-line basis over a period of 10 years. The consolidated financial statements include the operating results of the acquired business from the date of the acquisition. On July 20, 2000 we acquired the share capital of Telenor Technology Services Limited, a repair and logistics services division of Telenor Mobile Communications AS, a Norwegian provider of telecommunication, data and media communication services. The purchase price of approximately $4 million was paid in cash. The acquisition was accounted for as a purchase and resulted in approximately $2 million of goodwill, which is being amortized, on a straight-line basis over a period of 15 years. The acquired operations allow Jabil Global Services to offer circuit board repair and warranty services for European customers from Dublin, Ireland. The consolidated financial statements include the operating results of the acquired business from the date of acquisition. During the second quarter of fiscal 2001, we entered into a business sale agreement with Marconi plc ("Marconi") to acquire certain operations of its Communications division located in the United States, England, Italy and Germany. On June 13, 2001, we consummated the English and Italian portions of the acquisition and modified certain terms of the transaction. The acquisition price of the English and Italian portions was approximately $172 million and is being accounted for under the purchase accounting method. The acquisition is anticipated to result in intangible assets, including goodwill, of approximately $117 million, based on management's preliminary valuation. The allocation of the acquisition price will be based on appraisals and final analysis of management. The acquired assets were used by Marconi to manufacture printed circuit board assemblies for their Communications division. Simultaneous with the closings, we entered into a product supply agreement to continue to produce both existing and new products for Marconi in new product introduction, printed circuit board assembly, as well as repair of access, optical transmission and broadband switching products. On September 4, 2001, the Company completed the portion of the transaction related to the United States and we anticipate completing the German portion of the acquisition during fiscal 2002. The consolidated financial statements include the operating results of the acquired business from the date of acquisition. See "Factors Affecting Future Results -- We may not achieve expected profitability from our acquisitions." In July 2001, the FASB issued Statement No. 141, Business Combinations, and Statement No. 142, Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets. Statement 141 requires that the purchase method of accounting be used for all business combinations initiated after June 30, 2001 as well as all purchase method business 16

combinations completed after June 30, 2001. Statement 141 also specifies criteria intangible assets acquired in a purchase method business combination must meet to be recognized and reported apart from goodwill, noting that any purchase price allocable to an assembled workforce may not be accounted for separately. Statement 142 will require that goodwill and intangible assets with indefinite useful lives no longer be amortized, but instead tested for impairment at least annually in accordance with the provisions of Statement 142. Statement 142 will also require that intangible assets with estimable useful lives be amortized over their respective estimated useful lives to their estimated residual values, and reviewed for impairment in accordance with FAS Statement No. 121, Accounting for the Impairment of Long-Lived Assets and for Long-Lived Assets to Be Disposed Of. The Company plans to early adopt Statements 141 and 142 beginning in the first quarter of its fiscal year ending August 31, 2002. See Note 1 and 12 to the Consolidated Financial Statements. Statement 141 will require upon adoption of Statement 142, that the Company evaluate its existing intangible assets and goodwill that were acquired in a prior purchase business combination, and to make any necessary reclassifications in order to conform with the new criteria in Statement 141 for recognition apart from goodwill. Upon adoption of Statement 142, the Company will be required to reassess the useful lives and residual values of all intangible assets acquired, and make any necessary amortization period adjustments by the end of the first interim period after adoption. In addition, to the extent an intangible asset is identified as having an indefinite useful life, the Company will be required to test the intangible asset for impairment in accordance with the provisions of Statement 142 within the first interim period. Any impairment loss will be measured as of the date of adoption and recognized as the cumulative effect of a change in accounting principle in the first interim period. In connection with Statement 142's transitional goodwill impairment evaluation, the Statement will require the Company to perform an assessment of whether there is an indication that goodwill is impaired as of the date of adoption. To accomplish this, the Company must identify its reporting units and determine the carrying value of each reporting unit by assigning the assets and liabilities, including the existing goodwill and intangible assets, to those reporting units as of the date of adoption. The Company will then have up to six months from the date of adoption to determine the fair value of each reporting unit and compare it to the reporting unit's carrying amount. To the extent a reporting unit's carrying amount exceeds its fair value, an indication exists that the reporting unit's goodwill may be impaired and the Company must perform the second step of the transitional impairment test. In the second step, the Company must compare the implied fair value of the reporting unit's goodwill, determined by allocating the reporting unit's fair value to all of it assets (recognized and unrecognized) and liabilities in a manner similar to a purchase price allocation in accordance with Statement 141, to its carrying amount, both of which would be measured as of the date of adoption. This second step is required to be completed as soon as possible, but no later than the end of the year of adoption. Any transitional impairment loss will be recognized as the cumulative effect of a change in accounting principle in the Company's statement of earnings. As of the date of adoption, the Company expects to have unamortized intangibles of approximately $149 million, all of which will be subject to the transition provisions of Statements 141 and 142. Because of the extensive effort needed to comply with adopting Statements 141 and 142, the Company has not completed its analysis of the impact of adopting these Statements on the Company's financial statements at the date of this report, including whether it will be required to recognize any transitional impairment losses as the cumulative effect of a change in accounting principle. During this fiscal year, we completed greenfield expansions in Brussels, Belgium, Tiszaujvaros, Hungary and Chihuahua, Mexico. The Hungarian facility is approximately 250,000 square feet and began production in the fall of 2000. In Chihuahua, two 500,000 square-foot facilities were constructed to add capacity in Mexico. We also completed expansions of existing manufacturing sites in North America and opened an additional Jabil Global Services facility in Brussels, Belgium. The EMS industry has experienced rapid growth over the past several years as an increasing number of OEMs have outsourced their manufacturing requirements. OEMs are turning to outsourcing in order to 17

reduce product cost, achieve accelerated time-to-market and time-to-volume production, access advanced design and manufacturing technologies, improve inventory management and purchasing power, reduce their capital investment in manufacturing facilities, and achieve parallel manufacturing of the same product throughout the world. We believe that further growth opportunities exist for EMS providers to penetrate the worldwide electronics markets. RESULTS OF OPERATIONS The following table sets forth, for the periods indicated, certain operating data as a percentage of net revenue:

FISCAL YEAR ENDED AUGUST 31, 2001 COMPARED TO FISCAL YEAR ENDED AUGUST 31, 2000 Net Revenue. Our net revenue increased 21.7% to $4.3 billion for fiscal year 2001, up from $3.6 billion in fiscal year 2000. The increase was primarily due to a 41.0% increase in production of communications products, a 59.9% increase in production of consumer products and a 10.4% increase in production of peripheral products. These increases were offset by a 9.5% decrease in production of computer products due to softening demand in that sector. Foreign source revenue represented 50.3% of our net revenue for fiscal year 2001 and 43.5% of revenue for fiscal 2000. The increase in foreign source revenue was attributable to increased production in our international locations, primarily in our Mexican, Malaysian and Hungarian facilities, and from incremental revenue resulting from the Marconi acquisitions in England and Italy during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2001. Gross Profit. Gross margin decreased to 9.1% in fiscal year 2001 from 10.1% in fiscal year 2000 reflecting a higher content of material-based revenue as well as relatively lower levels of capacity utilization than in fiscal 2000. Selling, General and Administrative. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased to $184.1 million (4.3% of net revenue) in fiscal year 2001 from $132.7 million (3.7% of net revenue) in fiscal year 2000. This increase was primarily due to increases in staffing and related departmental expenses at all of our locations along with increases in information systems staff to support the expansion of our business. 18

Research and Development. Research and development expenses in fiscal year 2001 increased to $6.4 million (0.2% of net revenue) from $4.8 million (0.1% of net revenue) in fiscal year 2000 as a result of the establishment of a new Design Center located in our Michigan facility as well as expanded services in other locations. Amortization of Intangibles. We recorded $5.8 million of amortization of intangibles in fiscal year 2001 as compared to $2.7 million in fiscal year 2000. This increase is attributable to the amortization of the goodwill arising from the Marconi acquisition during fiscal 2001. Recent accounting pronouncements will change the way we account for amortization of goodwill in future periods by requiring us to no longer amortize goodwill. We will also be required to test goodwill for impairment on an annual basis. We are currently reviewing this statement to determine the impact its adoption will have on our financial position, results of operations and cash flow. See Notes 1 and 12 to the Consolidated Financial Statements. Acquisition and Merger-Related Charge. During fiscal year 2001, we incurred $6.6 million in acquisition-related charges consisting of increased staffing and support costs and legal and professional fees associated with the Marconi acquisition. See Note 10 to the Consolidated Financial Statements. Restructuring and Other Non-Recurring Charges. During fiscal 2001, we incurred $27.4 million in restructuring and other non-recurring charges related to reductions in our cost structure. These charges include reductions in workforce, re-sizing of facilities and the transition of certain facilities into new customer development sites. Approximately $11.5 million related to asset write-off costs, $5.6 million to lease exit costs, $8.9 million to employee severance and benefit costs and $1.4 million in other restructuring costs. As of August 31, 2001, liabilities relating to these restructuring activities, totaling $5.5 million, are expected to be paid out within the next twelve months. Interest Income. Interest income increased to $8.2 million in fiscal year 2001 from $7.4 million in fiscal year 2000 reflecting increased income on greater cash balances resulting from the issuance of convertible notes completed in the third quarter of fiscal 2001. See Note 4 to the Consolidated Financial Statements for fiscal year 2001. Interest Expense. Interest expense decreased to $5.9 million in fiscal year 2001, from $7.6 million in fiscal year 2000, primarily as a result of decreased short-term borrowings under our revolving line of credit throughout the year, offset by additional expense accrued on the convertible notes issued in the third quarter of fiscal 2001. Income Taxes. In fiscal year 2001, our effective tax rate decreased to 28.7% from 31.5% in fiscal year 2000. The effective tax rate is predominantly a function of the mix of domestic versus international income from operations. Our international operations have been taxed at a lower rate than in the United States, primarily due to tax holidays granted to our sites in Malaysia, China and Hungary. Such tax holidays are subject to conditions with which we expect to comply. See Note 5 to the Consolidated Financial Statements for fiscal 2001. FISCAL YEAR ENDED AUGUST 31, 2000 COMPARED TO FISCAL YEAR ENDED AUGUST 31, 1999 Net Revenue. Our net revenue increased 59.0% to $3.6 billion for fiscal year 2000, up from $2.2 billion in fiscal year 1999. The increase was primarily due to increased production of communications products. Foreign source revenue represented 43.5% of our net revenue for fiscal year 2000 and 40.5% of net revenue for fiscal year 1999. The increase in foreign source revenue was attributable to increased production in our international locations. Gross Profit. Gross margin decreased to 10.1% in fiscal year 2000 from 11.0% in fiscal year 1999, reflecting a higher content of material-based revenue and under-utilization of assets in certain international factories. Selling, General and Administrative. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased to $132.7 million (3.7% of net revenue) in fiscal year 2000 from $92.0 million (4.1% of net revenue) in fiscal year 1999. This increase was primarily due to continued increases in staffing and related departmental 19

expenses at all of our locations along with increases in information systems staff to support the expansion of our business. Research and Development. Research and development expenses in fiscal year 2000 decreased to $4.8 million (0.1% of net revenue) from $5.9 million (0.3% of net revenue) in fiscal year 1999 as a result of an increase in the rate of recovery of these costs from our customers. Amortization of Intangibles. We recorded $2.7 million of amortization of intangibles in fiscal year 2000 as compared to $1.2 million in fiscal year 1999. This increase is attributable to the amortization of the goodwill arising from the EFTC Services, Inc. and Bull Technology, Inc. acquisitions. Acquisition and Merger-Related Charge. During the first quarter of fiscal year 2000, we incurred $5.2 million in merger-related charges consisting of key employee severance and legal and professional fees associated with the GET merger. See Note 10 to the Consolidated Financial Statements. Interest Income. Interest income increased to $7.4 million in fiscal year 2000 from $4.5 million in fiscal year 1999 reflecting increased income on greater cash balances resulting from an equity offering completed in the fourth quarter. Interest Expense. Interest expense increased to $7.6 million in fiscal year 2000, from $7.1 million in fiscal year 1999, primarily reflecting slightly increased short-term borrowings to support plant expansions and working capital needs. Income Taxes. In fiscal year 2000, our effective tax rate decreased to 31.5% from 36.4% in fiscal year 1999. The effective tax rate is predominantly a function of the mix of domestic versus international income from operations. See Note 5 to the Consolidated Financial Statements. 20

- --------------- (1) In connection with the acquisition of certain manufacturing facilities of Marconi, we recorded acquisition charges of $1.9 million ($1.2 million after-tax), $3.8 million ($2.3 million after-tax), and $0.8 million ($0.6 million after-tax) during the quarters ended August 31, 2001, May 31, 2001 and February 28, 2001, respectively. We also recorded charges of $11.8 million ($11.0 million after-tax) and $15.6 million ($10.6 million after-tax) related to the restructuring of our business and other non- recurring charges during the quarters ended August 31, 2001 and May 31, 2001, respectively. Operating income excluding these charges was $31.6 million (3.4 % of net revenue), $41.7 million (4.0% of net revenue) and $59.2 million (4.9% of net revenue) for the quarters ended August 31, 2001, May 31, 2001 and February 28, 2001, respectively. Net income excluding these charges was $23.5 million (2.5% of net revenue), $31.7 million (3.0% of net revenue) and $41.3 million (3.4% of net revenue) and diluted earnings per share was $0.12, $0.16 and $0.21 for the quarters ended August 31, 2001, May 31, 2001 and February 28, 2001, respectively. (2) In connection with the GET Merger, we recorded merger-related charges of $5.2 million ($4.7 million after-tax) in the quarter ended November 30, 1999. Operating income excluding these charges was $44.6 million (6.5% of net revenue). Net income excluding this charge was $31.1 million (4.5% of net revenue), and diluted earnings per share was $0.17. (3) Gives effect to a two-for-one stock split in the form of a 100% stock dividend to stockholders of record on March 23, 2000 and on February 5, 1999. LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES We have funded our operations from the proceeds of public debt and equity offerings, private placement debt, borrowings on a revolving credit facility and cash generated from operations. In May 2001, we issued a total of $345 million, 20-year, 1.75% convertible subordinated notes at par, resulting in net proceeds of approximately $338 million. The notes mature on May 15, 2021 and pay interest 22

semiannually on May 15 and November 15. Each note is convertible at any time after the date of original issuance and prior to the close of business on the business day immediately preceding the maturity date by the holder at a conversion rate of 24.368 shares per $1,000 principal amount of notes. Holders may require us to purchase all or a portion of their notes on May 15 in the years 2004, 2006, 2009 and 2014 at par plus accrued interest. We may choose to pay the purchase price in cash or common stock valued at 95% of its market price. We may redeem all or a portion of the notes for cash at any time on or after May 18, 2004 at 100% of principal plus accrued interest. The net proceeds from the offering are anticipated to be used for general corporate purposes and to fund acquisitions. A portion of the proceeds were used to fund the initial Marconi acquisition closing. In June 2000, we sold 13.0 million shares of our common stock, which generated net proceeds to us of approximately $525.4 million. At August 31, 2001 our principal sources of liquidity consisted of cash and short-term investments, available borrowings under our revolving credit facilities, an accounts receivable securitization program and proceeds from the convertible notes issuance. We have committed line of credit facilities in place with a syndicate of banks that provide up to $750 million of working capital borrowing capacity, $500 million of which is provided for under a three-year facility. The remaining $250 million is provided for under a separate 364-day agreement. There were no borrowings outstanding under this line of credit as of August 31, 2001. Net cash provided by operating activities for the year ended August 31, 2001 was $182.8 million. This consisted primarily of $118.5 million of net income, $155.4 million of depreciation and amortization and $97.7 million of decreases in inventory, offset by $171.4 million of decreases in accounts payable and accrued expenses and $21.9 million of decreases in taxes payable. The decreases in inventory and accounts payable were due to reduced levels of business during the second half of fiscal 2001. During the third and fourth quarters of fiscal 2001, we experienced levels of reduced demand from many of our customers in response to the general economic downturn. Inventory levels and purchases were decreased in line with new levels of expected demand. Net cash used in investing activities of $441.5 million for the year ended August 31, 2001 consisted of our capital expenditures of $309.2 million for construction and equipment worldwide and cash paid of $139.2 million in the acquisition of certain assets of Marconi plc, net of $6.9 million of proceeds from the sale of property and equipment. In the early part of fiscal 2001, capital expenditures were made to complete the construction of our greenfield facilities in Tiszaujvaros, Hungary and Chihuahua, Mexico as well as to expand our existing facilities in North America. Purchases of manufacturing and computer equipment were made to support our ongoing business throughout the year. Despite the economic downturn experienced in the last half of fiscal 2001, we continue to invest in capital assets necessary to support both our existing business levels and our expected future capacity needs. Net cash provided by financing activities of $351.8 million for the year ended August 31, 2001 resulted primarily from $337.5 million in net proceeds from our issuance of convertible notes, $16.6 million in proceeds from the issuance of common stock for the exercise of employee stock options and the employee stock purchase plan and $5.9 million of proceeds from grants received from the Scottish government, offset in part by the repayment of an installment of principal on our private placement debt. See Notes 4 and 6 to the Consolidated Financial Statements Over the past several years, we have experienced significant growth. As a result, we have used cash to finance our working capital needs. In the event that we experience similar growth in the future, we may need to finance such growth and any corresponding working capital needs with additional borrowings under our revolving credit facility, as well as additional public and private offerings of our debt and equity. During the quarter ended November 30, 1999, we filed a "shelf" registration statement registering the potential sale of debt and equity securities in the future from time-to-time to augment our liquidity and capital resources. In August 2000, we effectively increased the amount of unissued securities under our shelf registration statement to $1.5 billion. The May 2001 offering of $345 million in convertible notes and the June 2000 offering of 13 million shares of our common stock was made pursuant to that registration statement. In August 2000, we established a $225 million account receivables securitization program with 23

a syndicate of banks with an expiration date in August 2001, which was later extended to November 2001. We renewed the facility with a new funding capacity of $100 million in November 2001. There were no borrowings outstanding under the facility at August 31, 2001. Interest is payable based on designated commercial paper rates plus agreed upon margins. In May 2001, the Company also established a 364-day, $250 million revolving credit facility with a syndicate of banks. There were no borrowings outstanding under the facility at August 31, 2001. We believe that during fiscal year 2002, our capital expenditures will exceed $100 million, principally for machinery, equipment, facilities and related expenses. We believe that our level of resources, which include cash on hand, available borrowings, and funds provided by operations, will be more than adequate to fund these capital expenditure and working capital requirements for fiscal 2002. Consummating any significant amount of additional acquisition opportunities, which we regularly explore, would increase our capital needs and, possibly, result in our need to increase our borrowings and access to public and private debt and equities markets. See "Factors Affecting Future Results -- We may not achieve expected profitability from our acquisitions, -- We derive a substantial portion of our revenues from our international operations, which are subject to greater volatility and often require more management time and expense to achieve profitability than our domestic operations." 24

FACTORS AFFECTING FUTURE RESULTS OUR OPERATING RESULTS MAY FLUCTUATE DUE TO A NUMBER OF FACTORS, MANY OF WHICH ARE BEYOND OUR CONTROL. Our annual and quarterly operating results are affected by a number of factors, including: - the level and timing of customer orders - the composition of the costs of sales between materials and labor and manufacturing overhead - price competition - our level of experience in manufacturing a particular product - the degree of automation used in our assembly process - the efficiencies achieved by us in managing inventories and fixed assets - fluctuations in materials costs and availability of materials - the timing of expenditures in anticipation of increased sales, customer product delivery requirements and shortages of components or labor. The volume and timing of orders placed by our customers vary due to variation in demand for our customers' products, our customers' inventory management, new product introductions and manufacturing strategy changes, and consolidations among our customers. In the past, changes in customer orders have had a significant effect on our results of operations due to corresponding changes in the level of overhead absorption. Any one or a combination of these factors could adversely affect our annual and quarterly results of operations in the future. See "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations -- Quarterly Results." BECAUSE WE DEPEND ON A LIMITED NUMBER OF CUSTOMERS, A REDUCTION IN SALES TO ANY ONE OF OUR CUSTOMERS COULD CAUSE A SIGNIFICANT DECLINE IN OUR REVENUE. For the fiscal year ended August 31, 2001, our four largest customers accounted for approximately 53% of our net revenue and 30 customers accounted for over 95% of our net revenue. For the fiscal year ended August 31, 2001, Cisco Systems, Inc. and Dell Computer Corporation, accounted for approximately 23% and 14% of our net revenue, respectively. We are dependent upon the continued growth, viability and financial stability of our customers whose industries have experienced rapid technological change, short product life cycles, consolidation, and pricing and margin pressures. We expect to continue to depend upon a relatively small number of customers for a significant percentage of our net revenue. Consolidation among our customers may further reduce the number of customers that generate a significant percentage of our revenues and exposes us to increased risks relating to dependence on a small number of customers. A significant reduction in sales to any of our customers or a customer exerting significant pricing and margin pressures on us, would have a material adverse effect on our results of operations. In the past, some of our customers have terminated their manufacturing arrangements with us or have significantly reduced or delayed the volume of manufacturing services ordered from us. We cannot assure you that present or future customers will not terminate their manufacturing arrangements with us or significantly change, reduce or delay the amount of manufacturing services ordered from us. If they do, it could have a material adverse effect on our results of operations. In addition, we generate significant account receivables in connection with providing manufacturing services to our customers. If one or more of our customers were to become insolvent or otherwise were unable to pay for the manufacturing services provided by us, our operating results and financial condition would be adversely affected. See "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" and "Business -- Customers and Marketing." 25

MOST OF OUR CUSTOMERS DO NOT COMMIT TO LONG-TERM PRODUCTION SCHEDULES, WHICH MAKES IT DIFFICULT FOR US TO SCHEDULE PRODUCTION AND ACHIEVE MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY OF OUR MANUFACTURING CAPACITY. The volume and timing of sales to our customers may vary due to: - variation in demand for our customers' products - our customers' attempts to manage their inventory - electronic design changes - changes in our customers' manufacturing strategy - acquisitions of or consolidations among customers - recessionary conditions in customers' industries Due in part to these factors, most of our customers do not commit to firm production schedules for more than one quarter in advance. Our inability to forecast the level of customer orders with certainty makes it difficult to schedule production and maximize utilization of manufacturing capacity. In the past, we have been required to increase staffing and other expenses in order to meet the anticipated demand of our customers. Anticipated orders from many of our customers have, in the past, failed to materialize or delivery schedules have been deferred as a result of changes in our customers' business needs, thereby adversely affecting our results of operations. On other occasions, our customers have required rapid increases in production, which have placed an excessive burden on our resources. Such customer order fluctuations and deferrals have had a material adverse effect on us in the past, and we may experience such effects in the future. In addition, the current business environment resulting from uncertainties relating to terrorist activities and economic recession has made planning even more complex. A business downturn resulting from any of these external factors could have a material adverse effect on our operating results. See "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" and "Business -- Backlog." WE COMPETE WITH NUMEROUS PROVIDERS OF ELECTRONIC MANUFACTURING SERVICES, INCLUDING OUR CURRENT OR POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS WHO MAY DECIDE TO MANUFACTURE ALL OF THEIR PRODUCTS INTERNALLY. The electronic manufacturing services business is highly competitive. We compete against numerous domestic and foreign manufacturers, including Celestica, Inc., Flextronics International, Sanmina Corporation, SCI Systems, Inc. and Solectron Corporation. In addition, we may in the future encounter competition from other large electronic manufacturers that are selling, or may begin to sell, electronic manufacturing services. Most of our competitors have international operations and some have substantially greater manufacturing, financial, research and development, and marketing resources than us. We also face potential competition from the manufacturing operations of our current and potential customers, who are continually evaluating the merits of manufacturing products internally versus the advantages of outsourcing. See "Business -- Competition." IF WE DO NOT MANAGE OUR GROWTH EFFECTIVELY, OUR PROFITABILITY COULD DECLINE. We have grown rapidly. Our ability to manage growth effectively will require us to continue to implement and improve our operational, financial and management information systems; continue to develop the management skills of our managers and supervisors; and continue to train, motivate and manage our employees. Our failure to effectively manage growth could have a material adverse effect on our results of operations. See "Selected Consolidated Financial Data" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations." 26

ANY DELAY IN INTEGRATING OUR NEW INFORMATION SYSTEMS COULD DISRUPT OUR OPERATIONS AND CAUSE UNANTICIPATED INCREASES IN OUR COSTS. We have completed the installation of an Enterprise Resource Planning system in eleven of our manufacturing sites and in our corporate location. We are in the process of installing this system in our remaining plants which will replace the current Manufacturing Resource Planning system and financial information systems. Any delay in the implementation of these new information systems could result in material adverse consequences, including disruption of operations, loss of information and unanticipated increases in cost. WE MAY NOT ACHIEVE EXPECTED PROFITABILITY FROM OUR ACQUISITIONS. We cannot assure you that we will be able to successfully integrate the operations and management of our recent acquisitions. Similarly, we cannot assure you that we will be able to consummate or, if consummated, successfully integrate the operations and management of future acquisitions. Acquisitions involve significant risks, which could have a material adverse effect on us, including: - Financial risks, such as (1) potential liabilities of the acquired businesses; (2) the dilutive effect of the issuance of additional equity securities; (3) the incurrence of additional debt; (4) the financial impact of valuing goodwill and other intangible assets involved in any acquisitions that are accounted for using the purchase method of accounting; and (5) possible adverse tax and accounting effects. - Operating risks, such as (1) the diversion of management's attention to the assimilation of the businesses to be acquired; (2) the risk that the acquired businesses will fail to maintain the quality of services that we have historically provided; (3) the need to implement financial and other systems and add management resources; (4) the risk that key employees of the acquired businesses will leave after the acquisition; and (5) unforeseen difficulties in the acquired operations. We have acquired and will continue to pursue the acquisition of manufacturing and supply chain management operations from OEM's. In these acquisitions, the divesting OEM will typically enter a supply arrangement with the acquiror. Therefore, the competition for these acquisitions is intense. In addition, certain OEM's may not choose to consummate these acquisitions with us because of our current supply arrangements with other OEM's. If we are unable to attract and consummate some of these acquisition opportunities, our growth could be adversely impacted. Our ability to achieve the expected benefits of the outsourcing opportunities associated with these acquisitions is subject to risks, including our ability to meet volume, product quality, timeliness and pricing requirements, and our ability to achieve the OEM's expected cost reduction. In addition, when acquiring manufacturing operations, we may receive limited commitments to firm production schedules. Accordingly, in these circumstances, we may spend substantial amounts purchasing these manufacturing facilities and assume significant contractual and other obligations with no guaranteed levels of revenues. We may also not achieve expected profitability from these arrangements. As a result of these and other risks, these outsourcing opportunities may not be profitable. WE DEPEND ON A LIMITED NUMBER OF SUPPLIERS FOR COMPONENTS THAT ARE CRITICAL TO OUR MANUFACTURING PROCESSES. A SHORTAGE OF THESE COMPONENTS OR AN INCREASE IN THEIR PRICE COULD INTERRUPT OUR OPERATIONS AND REDUCE OUR PROFITS. Substantially all of our net revenue is derived from turnkey manufacturing in which we provide materials procurement. While most of our significant long-term customer contracts permit quarterly or other periodic adjustments to pricing based on decreases and increases in component prices and other factors, we typically bear the risk of component price increases that occur between any such re-pricings or, if such re-pricing is not permitted, during the balance of the term of the particular customer contract. Accordingly, certain component price increases could adversely affect our gross profit margins. Almost all of the products we manufacture require one or more components that are available from only a single 27

source. Some of these components are allocated from time to time in response to supply shortages. In some cases, supply shortages will substantially curtail production of all assemblies using a particular component. In addition, at various times industry wide shortages of electronic components have occurred, particularly of memory and logic devices. Such circumstances have produced significant levels of short-term interruption of our operations, and may have a material adverse effect on our results of operations in the future. See "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" and "Business -- Components Procurement." WE DERIVE A SUBSTANTIAL PORTION OF OUR REVENUES FROM OUR INTERNATIONAL OPERATIONS, WHICH ARE SUBJECT TO GREATER VOLATILITY AND OFTEN REQUIRE MORE MANAGEMENT TIME AND EXPENSE TO ACHIEVE PROFITABILITY THAN OUR DOMESTIC OPERATIONS. We derived over 50% of our revenues from international operations in fiscal year 2001. We currently operate outside the United States in Brussels, Belgium; Contagem, Brazil; Dan Shui, Panyu, and Shenzhen, China; Coventry and Liverpool, England; Sheung Shui, Hong Kong; Tiszaujvaros, Hungary; Dublin, Ireland; Bergamo and Marcianise, Italy; Penang, Malaysia; Tokyo, Japan; Chihuahua and Guadalajara, Mexico; and Livingston, Scotland. We continually consider additional opportunities to make foreign acquisitions and construct new foreign facilities. Our international operations may be subject to a number of risks, including: - difficulties in staffing and managing foreign operations - political and economic instability - unexpected changes in regulatory requirements and laws - longer customer payment cycles and difficulty collecting accounts receivable export duties, import controls and trade barriers (including quotas) - governmental restrictions on the transfer of funds to us from our operations outside the United States - burdens of complying with a wide variety of foreign laws and labor practices - fluctuations in currency exchange rates, which could affect local payroll, utility and other expenses - inability to utilize net operating losses incurred by our foreign operations to reduce our U.S. income taxes In addition, several of the countries where we operate have emerging or developing economies, which may be subject to greater currency volatility, negative growth, high inflation, limited availability of foreign exchange and other risks. These factors may harm our results of operations and any measures that we may implement to reduce the effect of volatile currencies and other risks of our international operations may not be effective. In our experience, entry into new international markets requires considerable management time as well as start-up expenses for market development, hiring and establishing office facilities before any significant revenues are generated. As a result, initial operations in a new market may operate at low margins or may be unprofitable. See "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Result of Operations -- Liquidity and Capital Resources." WE DO NOT HAVE EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENTS WITH ANY OF OUR KEY PERSONNEL, THE LOSS OF WHICH COULD HURT OUR OPERATIONS. Our continued success depends largely on the efforts and skills of our key managerial and technical employees. The loss of the services of certain of these key employees or an inability to attract or retain qualified employees could have a material adverse effect on us. We do not have employment agreements or non-competition agreements with our key employees. 28

FAILURE TO MAINTAIN OUR TECHNOLOGICAL AND MANUFACTURING PROCESS EXPERTISE COULD HARM OUR RESULTS OF OPERATIONS. The market for our manufacturing services is characterized by rapidly changing technology and continuing process development. We are continually evaluating the advantages and feasibility of new manufacturing processes. We believe that our future success will depend upon our ability to develop and provide manufacturing services which meet our customers' changing needs, maintain technological leadership, and successfully anticipate or respond to technological changes in manufacturing processes on a cost-effective and timely basis. We cannot assure you that our process development efforts will be successful. See "Business -- Technology" and "-- Research and Development." COMPLIANCE OR THE FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH CURRENT AND FUTURE ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATIONS COULD CAUSE US SIGNIFICANT EXPENSE. We are subject to a variety of federal, state, local and foreign environmental regulations relating to the use, storage, discharge and disposal of hazardous chemicals used during our manufacturing process. If we fail to comply with any present and future regulations, we could be subject to future liabilities or the suspension of production. In addition, such regulations could restrict our ability to expand our facilities or could require us to acquire costly equipment, or to incur other significant expenses to comply with environmental regulations. CERTAIN OF OUR EXISTING STOCKHOLDERS HAVE SIGNIFICANT CONTROL. Our executive officers, directors and principal stockholders and their affiliates collectively beneficially own 22.7% of our outstanding common stock, of which William D. Morean beneficially owns 17.3%. As a result, our executive officers, directors, principal stockholders and their affiliates have significant influence over (1) the election of our Board of Directors, (2) the approval or disapproval of any other matters requiring stockholder approval, and (3) the affairs and policies of Jabil. OUR STOCK PRICE MAY BE VOLATILE DUE TO FACTORS BEYOND OUR CONTROL. Our common stock is traded on the New York Stock Exchange. The market price of our common stock has fluctuated substantially in the past and could fluctuate substantially in the future, based on a variety of factors, including future announcements covering us or our key customers or competitors, government regulations, litigation, changes in earnings estimates by analysts, fluctuations in quarterly operating results, or general conditions in the contract manufacturing, communications, computer peripherals, personal computer, automotive or consumer products industries. Furthermore, stock prices for many companies, and high technology companies in particular, fluctuate widely for reasons that may be unrelated to their operating results. Those fluctuations and general economic, political and market conditions, such as recessions or international currency fluctuations and demand for our services, may adversely affect the market price of our common stock. PROVISIONS IN OUR CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION, BYLAWS, STOCKHOLDER RIGHTS PLAN AND DELAWARE LAW MAY DISCOURAGE CERTAIN TAKEOVER TRANSACTIONS. The Corporation Law of the State of Delaware and our certificate of incorporation and bylaws each contain certain provisions that may, in effect, discourage, delay or prevent a change of control of Jabil or unsolicited acquisition proposals from taking place. We recently adopted a stockholder rights agreement, which could make it considerably more difficult or costly for a person or group to acquire Jabil in a transaction that our board of directors opposes. These provisions, alone or in combination with each other, may discourage transactions involving actual or potential changes of control, including transactions that otherwise could involve payment of a premium over prevailing market prices to holders of common stock, or could limit the ability of stockholders to approve transactions that they may deem to be in their best interests. 29

AN ADVERSE CHANGE IN THE INTEREST RATES FOR OUR BORROWINGS COULD ADVERSELY AFFECT OUR FINANCIAL CONDITION. We pay interest on outstanding borrowings under our $750 million revolving credit facilities at interest rates that fluctuate based upon changes in various base interest rates. As of August 31, 2001, we did not have outstanding borrowings under our revolving credit facilities. We also have funding costs associated with the asset-backed securitization. Costs are in part based on commercial paper rates. As of August 31, 2001, we did not have any outstanding borrowings under the asset-backed securitization. An adverse change in the base rates upon which our interest rate is determined could have a material adverse effect on our financial position, results of operations and cash flows. ITEM 7A. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK The Company's market risk sensitive financial instruments are entered into for purposes other than trading. Financial instruments include cash equivalents, which are available for immediate withdrawal. Long-term debt instruments are subject to a fixed interest rate and maturity schedule. Short-term interest rate changes can impact interest expense on our variable rate credit facility and asset-backed securitization, however, no amounts were outstanding on either of the facilities as of August 31, 2001. See "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" and "Factors Affecting Future Results -- We depend on a limited number of suppliers for components that are critical to our manufacturing processes. A shortage of these components or an increase in their price could interrupt our operations and reduce our profits, -- We derive a substantial portion of our revenues from our international operations, which are subject to greater volatility and often require more management time and expense to achieve profitability than our domestic operations, and -- An adverse change in the interest rates for our borrowings could adversely affect our financial condition." See Notes 1, 4 and 8 to the Consolidated Financial Statements. ITEM 8. FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND SUPPLEMENTARY DATA Certain information required by this item is included in Item 7 of Part II of this Report under the heading "Quarterly Results" and is incorporated into this item by reference. All other information required by this item is included in Item 14 of Part IV of this Report and is incorporated into this item by reference. ITEM 9.

INDEPENDENT AUDITORS' REPORT The Board of Directors Jabil Circuit, Inc: We have audited the accompanying consolidated financial statements of Jabil Circuit, Inc. and subsidiaries as listed in the accompanying index. In connection with our audits of the consolidated financial statements, we also have audited the accompanying financial statement schedule as listed in the accompanying index. These consolidated financial statements and financial statement schedule are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements and financial statement schedule based on our audits. We did not audit the consolidated statements of income, shareholders' equity, and cash flows of GET Manufacturing, Inc. for the year ended August 31, 1999, which reflects total revenues constituting 10.6 percent for the year ended August 31, 1999, of the related consolidated total. Those statements were audited by other auditors whose report has been furnished to us, and our opinion, insofar as it relates to the amounts included for GET Manufacturing, Inc., is based solely on the report of the other auditors. We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits and the report of the other auditors provide a reasonable basis for our opinion. In our opinion, based on our audits and the report of the other auditors, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Jabil Circuit, Inc. and subsidiaries as of August 31, 2001 and 2000, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for each of the years in the three-year period ended August 31, 2001, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. Also in our opinion, which is based on our audits and the report of other auditors, the related financial statement schedule, when considered in relation to the basic consolidated financial statements taken as a whole, presents fairly, in all material respects, the information set forth therein. /s/ KPMG LLP St. Petersburg, Florida September 20, 2001 36

JABIL CIRCUIT, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS 1. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES Jabil Circuit, Inc. (together with its subsidiaries, herein referred to as the "Company") is an independent supplier of custom manufacturing services for circuit board assemblies, subsystems and systems to major original equipment manufacturers ("OEMs") in the communications, personal computer, peripherals, consumer and automotive industries. The Company's manufacturing services combine a high volume, highly automated manufacturing approach with advanced design and manufacturing technologies. The Company is headquartered in St. Petersburg, Florida and has manufacturing operations in Asia, Europe, the United States and Latin America. On September 13, 1999 the Company issued approximately 10.2 million shares of its common stock for all the outstanding common stock of GET Manufacturing, Inc. ("GET"), a China-based electronics manufacturing services provider to original equipment manufacturers serving the consumer electronics, telecommunications, medical and computer peripheral industries. The transaction was accounted for as a pooling of interests and, accordingly, the Company's historical consolidated financial statements for all periods presented have been restated to reflect the merger with GET. Because Jabil and GET had differing fiscal periods prior to the merger, GET's financial statements for the fiscal year ended March 31, 1999 and March 31, 1998 were combined with Jabil's financial statements for the years ended August 31, 1998 and August 31, 1997, respectively. GET's 1999 financial statements were conformed to the twelve months ending August 31 for purposes of consolidating with Jabil's financial statements for its year ended August 31, 1999. As a result of the overlapping period created when GET's fiscal year was conformed to an August 31 fiscal year, $1,116 of net loss (for the period September 1998 through March 1999) was included in consolidated net income for both fiscal years ended August 31, 1998 and 1999. Stockholders' equity was adjusted so that the duplicate amount is eliminated from retained earnings. There were no material transactions between Jabil and GET prior to the merger. The effects of conforming GET's accounting policies to those of Jabil were not material. Significant accounting policies followed by the Company are as follows: A. PRINCIPLES OF CONSOLIDATION The consolidated financial statements include the accounts and operations of Jabil Circuit, Inc. and its subsidiaries, all of which are wholly-owned. All significant inter-company balances and transactions have been eliminated in preparing the consolidated financial statements. As discussed above and in Note 10, in September, 1999 the Company completed a merger with GET Manufacturing, Inc. which was accounted for as a pooling of interests in fiscal 2000. The accompanying historical consolidated financial statements were previously restated to reflect the impact of this transaction. B. USE OF ACCOUNTING ESTIMATES Management is required to make estimates and assumptions during the preparation of the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles. These estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the dates of the consolidated financial statements. They also affect the reported amounts of net income. Actual results could differ materially from these estimates and assumptions. C. CASH, CASH EQUIVALENTS AND OTHER FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS The Company considers all highly liquid instruments with original maturities of 90 days or less to be cash equivalents for consolidated financial statement purposes. Cash equivalents consist of investments in 43

JABIL CIRCUIT, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- (CONTINUED) money market funds and commercial paper with original maturities of 90 days or less. At August 31, 2001 and 2000 cash equivalents totaled approximately $110.4 million and $178.2 million, respectively. Management considers the carrying value of cash and cash equivalents to be a reasonable approximation of market value given the short-term nature of these financial instruments. Short term investments include corporate and governmental debt securities which are classified as available-for-sale and are reported at fair market value in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 115, Accounting for Certain Investments in Debt and Equity Securities. As of August 31, 2001, the Company held no short-term investments. D. INVENTORIES Inventories are stated at the lower of cost (first in, first out (FIFO) method) or market. E. PROPERTY, PLANT AND EQUIPMENT Property, plant and equipment is capitalized at cost and depreciated using the straight-line depreciation method over the estimated useful lives of the respective assets, primarily thirty-five years for buildings and three to five years for other assets. Maintenance and repairs are expensed as incurred. The cost and related accumulated depreciation of assets sold or retired are removed from the accounts and any resulting gain or loss is reflected in the statement of earnings. F. INTANGIBLE ASSETS Intangible assets arose in connection with business combinations. They are stated at amortized cost and include goodwill and other intellectual property. The table below sets forth the components of intangible assets.

AUGUST 31, ------------------ 2001 2000 -------- ------- Goodwill.................................................... $154,819 $37,208 Other intangibles........................................... 800 800 -------- ------- 155,619 38,008 Accumulated amortization.................................... (6,731) (3,648) -------- ------- Intangible assets, net...................................... $148,888 $34,360 ======== =======
Amortization expense was $5.8 million and $2.7 million in the years ended August 31, 2001 and 2000, respectively. Historically, intangibles have been amortized on a straight-line basis over 10 to 15 years. Recent accounting pronouncements will affect both the valuation of and the amortization of intangible assets in future years. See note 12 to the Consolidated Financial Statements. G. IMPAIRMENT OF LONG-LIVED ASSETS The Company reviews property and equipment for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. Recoverability of property and equipment is measured by comparison of its carrying amount, including the unamortized portion of goodwill allocated to the property and equipment, to future net cash flows the property and equipment are expected to generate. If such assets are considered to be impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amount of the property and equipment, including the allocated goodwill, if any, exceeds its fair market value. The Company assesses the 44

JABIL CIRCUIT, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- (CONTINUED) recoverability of goodwill by determining whether the unamortized goodwill balance can be recovered through undiscounted future cash flows of the acquired operation. The amount of goodwill impairment, if any, is measured based on projected discounted future cash flows using a discount rate reflecting the Company's average cost of funds. During 1999, the Company determined that the portion of goodwill related to GET's 1997 acquisition of Able Electronics Corporation ("Able") was impaired. As a result of the overlapping period created when GET's fiscal year was conformed to an August 31 fiscal year, the write off of the unamortized goodwill of $3,578,000 is included in the results of operations for both fiscal years ended August 31, 1998 and 1999. Stockholders' equity was adjusted to eliminate the duplicate effect on retained earnings. See Note 12 to the Consolidated Financial Statements relating to recently issued accounting standards regarding the impairment of long-lived assets. H. REVENUE RECOGNITION The Company's net revenue is principally derived from the product sales of electronic equipment built to customer specifications. The Company also derives revenue to a lesser extent from repair services, design services and excess inventory sales. Revenue from product sales and excess inventory sales is recognized when goods are shipped, or title passes. Service related revenues are recognized upon completion of the services. The Company assumes no significant obligations after product shipment. Revenue is recorded net of estimated product return and warranty costs. In connection with the August 1998 acquisition of the net assets of Hewlett-Packard Company ("HP") laser printer operations, the Company entered into an agreement with HP to produce laser printer component products. During the first year of the agreement, the Company received compensation for available capacity, as well as compensation for the raw material content of actual units produced. The available capacity compensation was recorded on a units produced basis. The agreement for compensation for available capacity expired in August 1999 and has been replaced with a unit pricing agreement similar to the Company's other contracts. I. GRANT REVENUE The Company has been awarded grants related to the development of its Scottish operations. Grant funds are earned as certain milestones are met, and are being amortized over two to five-year periods based on the dates of the grant. J. INCOME TAXES Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in the tax rate is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date of the rate change. 45

JABIL CIRCUIT, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- (CONTINUED) K. NET INCOME PER SHARE The following table sets forth the calculation of basic and diluted Earning Per Share (in thousands, except per share data).

FISCAL YEAR ENDED ------------------------------------ AUGUST 31, AUGUST 31, AUGUST 31, 2001 2000 1999 ---------- ---------- ---------- (IN THOUSANDS EXCEPT PER SHARE DATA) Numerator: Income............................................... $118,517 $145,648 $ 84,819 Interest expensed on convertible debt, net of tax.... 1,277 -- -- -------- -------- -------- Net Income........................................... 119,794 145,648 84,819 ======== ======== ======== Denominator: Weighted average shares outstanding -- basic......... 191,862 179,032 166,754 Stock options........................................ 7,290 8,416 7,580 Shares issuable upon conversion of convertible notes.............................................. 3,071 -- -- -------- -------- -------- Weighted average shares outstanding -- diluted..... 202,223 187,448 174,334 ======== ======== ======== Earnings per common share: Basic.............................................. $ 0.62 $ 0.81 $ 0.51 ======== ======== ======== Diluted............................................ $ 0.59 $ 0.78 $ 0.49 ======== ======== ========
For the years ended August 31, 2001, 2000 and 1999, options to purchase 580,313, 138,732, and 6,218 shares of common stock were outstanding during the period but were not included in the computation of diluted earnings per share because the options' exercise prices were greater than the average market price of the common shares, and therefore, the effect would be anti-dilutive. L. FOREIGN CURRENCY TRANSACTIONS For the Company's foreign subsidiaries which use the local currency as their functional currency, assets and liabilities are translated at exchange rates in effect at the balance sheet date, and revenues and expenses are translated at the weighted average exchange rate for the period. The effects of these translation adjustments are reported in comprehensive income. Gains and losses arising from foreign currency transactions denominated in a currency other than the functional currency of the entity involved and remeasurement adjustments for foreign operations where the U.S. dollar is the functional currency are included in income. To date, the effect of such amounts on net income has not been material. M. PROFIT SHARING AND 401(K) PLAN The Company contributes to a profit sharing plan for all employees who have completed a 12-month period of service in which the employee has worked at least 1,000 hours. In addition, the Company provides retirement benefits to its domestic employees who have completed a 90 day period of service, through a 401(k) plan that provides a Company matching contribution. The Company also has defined contribution benefit plans for certain of its international employees primarily dictated by the custom of the region in which it operates. Company contributions are at the discretion of the Company's Board of Directors. The Company contributed approximately $21.9 million, $14.9 million and $11.2 million for the years ended August 31, 2001, 2000 and 1999, respectively. 46

JABIL CIRCUIT, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- (CONTINUED) N. STOCK BASED COMPENSATION Prior to September 1, 1996, the Company accounted for its stock option plan in accordance with the provisions of Accounting Principles Board (APB) Opinion No. 25, Accounting for Stock Issued to Employees, and related interpretations. As such, compensation expense would be recorded on the date of granting of stock options only if the current market price of the underlying stock exceeded the exercise price. Effective September 1, 1996, the Company adopted Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 123, Accounting for Stock Based Compensation (Statement 123), which permits entities to recognize as expense over the vesting period the fair value of all stock based awards on the date of the grant. Alternatively, Statement 123 allows entities to continue to apply the provisions of APB Opinion No. 25 and provide pro forma net income and pro forma net income per share disclosures for employee stock options granted in fiscal 1996 and subsequent years as if the fair value based method defined in Statement 123 had been applied. The Company has elected to continue to apply the provisions of APB Opinion No. 25 and provide the pro forma disclosure required by Statement 123. O. STOCK SPLIT On March 16, 2000 and January 28, 1999, the Company's Board of Directors approved a two-for-one stock split of the Company's common stock. Per share information in the accompanying consolidated financial statements and notes has been adjusted to reflect the impact of the common stock splits for all periods presented. P. COMPREHENSIVE INCOME The Company has adopted Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 130, Reporting Comprehensive Income. Statement 130 establishes standards for reporting comprehensive income. The Statement defines comprehensive income as the changes in equity of an enterprise except those resulting from stockholder transactions. The Company's balance of accumulated other comprehensive income is composed of accumulated foreign currency translation losses of $(0.5) million, net of tax, and $0.2 million, net of tax, resulting from the change in fair market value of derivative instruments. 2. INVENTORIES Inventories consist of the following (in thousands):

AUGUST 31, ------------------- 2001 2000 -------- -------- Raw materials............................................... $314,337 $368,783 Work in process............................................. 58,555 54,288 Finished goods.............................................. 58,607 54,477 -------- -------- $431,499 $477,548 ======== ========

Depreciation expense of approximately $149.6 million, $96.6 million and $62.0 million was recorded for the years ended August 31, 2001, 2000 and 1999, respectively. During the year ended August 31, 2001, the Company began construction of a manufacturing facility in Guangzhou, China and completed construction of facilities in Tiszaujvaros, Hungary and Chihuahua, Mexico. During the years ended August 31, 2001, 2000, and 1999, the Company capitalized approximately $3.0 million, $1.0 million and $0, respectively, in interest related to the constructed facilities. Maintenance and repairs expense was approximately $22.1 million, $13.4 million and $10.6 million for the years ended August 31, 2001, 2000 and 1999, respectively. 4. NOTES PAYABLE AND LONG-TERM DEBT Notes Payable and Long-term debt consists of the following (in thousands):

- --------------- (a) In May 1996, the Company completed a private placement of $50,000,000 Senior Notes due 2004. The Notes have a fixed interest rate of 6.89%, with interest payable on a semi-annual basis. Principal is payable in six equal annual installments which began May 30, 1999. (b) At May 31, 2001, the Company negotiated a 364-day, $250 million unsecured line of credit facility with a syndicate of banks. The terms of the loan agreement mirror the terms of the $500 million 48

JABIL CIRCUIT, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- (CONTINUED) revolving credit facility described below. As of August 31, 2001, there were no borrowings under the 364-day facility. (c) On April 7, 2000, the Company renegotiated its unsecured line of credit facility and established a $500 million unsecured revolving credit facility with a syndicate of banks ("Revolver"). Under the terms of the Revolver, borrowings can be made under either floating rate loans or Eurodollar rate loans. The Company pays interest on outstanding floating rate loans at the banks' prime rate. The Company pays interest on outstanding Eurodollar loans at the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) in effect at the loan inception plus a factor of 1.125% to 1.875% depending on the Company's funded debt to total capitalization ratios. The Company pays a commitment fee on the unused portion of the Revolver at 0.25% to 0.375% depending on the Company's funded debt to total capitalization ratios. The renegotiated Revolver expires on April 6, 2003 and outstanding borrowings are then due and payable. As of August 31, 2001, there were no borrowings outstanding under the Revolver and $500 million of the facility was available. (d) In May 2001, we issued a total of $345 million, 20-year, 1.75% convertible subordinated notes at par, resulting in net proceeds of approximately $338 million. The notes mature on May 15, 2021 and pay interest semiannually on May 15 and November 15. Each note is convertible at any time after the date of original issuance and prior to the close of business on the business day immediately preceding the maturity date by the holder at a conversion rate of 24.368 shares per $1,000 principal amount of notes. Holders may require us to purchase all or a portion of their notes on May 15 in the years 2004, 2006, 2009 and 2014 at par plus accrued interest. We may choose to pay the purchase price in cash or common stock valued at 95% of its market price. We may redeem all or a portion of the notes for cash at any time on or after May 18, 2004 at 100% of principal plus accrued interest. Long term debt maturities as of August 31, 2001 for the next five years are as follows:

2002........................................................ $ 8,333 2003........................................................ 8,333 2004........................................................ 8,334 2005........................................................ -- Thereafter.................................................. 345,000 -------- $370,000 ========
The credit facilities require compliance with a financial covenant based on the ratio of total debt to total capitalization, calculated on a consolidated basis. The credit facilities require compliance with operating covenants which limit, among other things, the incurrence of additional indebtedness by the Company and the covered subsidiaries. The Company was in compliance with the respective covenants as of August 31, 2001. In August, 2000 Jabil Circuit entered into an asset backed securitization program with Bank One, which provides for the sale of up to $225 million of eligible accounts receivables of certain U.S. plants with an expiration date in August 2001, which was later extended to November 2001. We renewed the facility with a new funding capacity of $100 million in November 2001. We account for the sale of receivables under this securitization program in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 125, Accounting for Transfers and Servicing of Financial Assets and Extinguishments of Liabilities, as replaced by Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 140, Accounting for Transfers and Servicing of Financial Assets and Extinguishments of Liabilities. Receivables sold under this program will be excluded from accounts receivable in the Consolidated Balance Sheets. The asset backed securitization will be used as a financing tool to fund working capital. 49

Jabil has been granted tax incentives, including tax holidays, for its Hungarian, Chinese and Malaysian subsidiaries. These tax incentives, including tax holidays, expire between 2003 and 2010, and are subject to certain conditions with which the Company expects to comply. The subsidiaries generated income during the years ended August 31, 2001, 2000 and 1999, resulting in a tax benefit of approximately $15.2 million ($.08 per share), $12.6 million ($0.07 per share) and $4.7 million ($0.03 per share), 50

JABIL CIRCUIT, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- (CONTINUED) respectively. The Company has been granted a 10-year Malaysian income tax holiday that began November 1, 2000. The Company intends to indefinitely re-invest income from all of its foreign subsidiaries. The aggregate undistributed earnings of the Company's foreign subsidiaries for which no deferred tax liability has been recorded is approximately $208.1 million as of August 31, 2001.

Net current deferred tax assets were $17.8 million and $15.8 million at August 31, 2001 and August 31, 2000, respectively, and net noncurrent deferred tax liabilities were $37.0 million and $25.8 million at August 31, 2001 and August 31, 2000, respectively. Based on the Company's historical operating income, management believes that it is more likely than not that the Company will realize the benefit of its net deferred tax assets. 6. STOCKHOLDERS' EQUITY A. PUBLIC OFFERING On June 6, 2000, the Company completed an equity offering of 13 million shares of its Common Stock.

JABIL CIRCUIT, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- (CONTINUED) B. STOCK OPTION PLANS As of August 31, 2001, no options were outstanding under the 1983 and 1989 stock option plans. The Board of Directors terminated these plans in November 1992, and no additional options may be issued thereunder. The exercise price of the outstanding options under these plans was equal to fair market value, as determined by the Company, on the date of grant. The Company's 1992 Stock Option Plan (the "1992 Plan") provides for the granting to employees of incentive stock options within the meaning of Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code and for the granting of non-statutory stock options to employees and consultants of the Company. The 1992 Plan was adopted by the Board of Directors in November 1992 and approved by the stockholders in December 1992. A total of 23,440,000 shares of common stock have been reserved for issuance under the 1992 Plan. As of August 31, 2001, options to purchase 9,816,109 shares are outstanding under the 1992 Plan. The exercise price of all incentive stock options granted under the 1992 Plan is to be at least equal to the fair market value of shares of common stock on the date of grant. With respect to any participant who owns stock representing more than 10% of the voting power of all classes of stock of the Company, the exercise price of any stock option granted is to equal at least 110% of the fair market value on the grant date and the maximum term of the option may not exceed five years. The term of all other options under the 1992 Plan may not exceed ten years. In connection with the merger with GET, the Company has assumed all options outstanding under the GET Stock Option Plan (the "GET Plan"). Options under the GET Plan have been converted into the Company's options and adjusted to effect the appropriate conversion ratio as specified by the applicable merger agreement. The options generally vest over three to four years and expire ten years after the date of grant. Due to the merger between the Company and GET, the GET Plan was terminated. As a result, no further options may be granted under the GET Plan. The following table summarizes option activity from September 1, 1998 through August 31, 2001:

JABIL CIRCUIT, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- (CONTINUED) At August 31, 2001, options for 4,537,574 shares were exercisable. In February 2001, the Company adopted a new Stock Award Plan. The purpose of the Stock Award Plan is to provide incentives to attract and retain key employees to the Company and motivate such persons to stay with the Company and to increase their efforts to make the business of the Company more successful. As of August 31, 2001, 4,200 shares were issued to employees under the Stock Award Plan. The range of exercise prices, shares, weighted average remaining contractual life and exercise price for the options outstanding as of August 31, 2001 are presented below:

The range of exercise prices, shares and weighted average exercise price of the options exercisable at August 31, 2001 are presented below:
WEIGHTED- SHARES AVERAGE RANGE OF EXERCISE PRICES EXERCISABLE EXERCISE PRICE - ------------------------ ----------- -------------- $ 0.63 - 5.88.............................................. 1,883,702 $ 4.07 6.47 - 18.12.............................................. 1,092,673 11.19 20.50 - 29.20.............................................. 1,381,064 22.62 31.63 - 65.84.............................................. 180,135 40.99 --------- ------ $ 0.63 - 65.84.............................................. 4,537,574 $12.90 ========= ======
The per-share weighted-average fair value of stock options granted during 2001, 2000 and 1999 was $18.02, $16.61, and $12.57, respectively, on the date of the grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model with the following weighted-average assumptions: 2001 -- expected dividend yield of 0%, risk-free interest rate of 5.0%, expected volatility of 94%, and an expected life of 4 years; 2000 -- expected dividend yield of 0%, risk-free interest rate of 5.75%, expected volatility of 91%, and an expected life of 4 years; 1999 -- expected dividend yield of 0%, risk-free interest rate of 6.0%, expected volatility of 96%, and an expected life of 5 years. C. STOCK PURCHASE PLAN The Company's 1992 Employee Stock Purchase Plan (the "Purchase Plan") was adopted by the Board of Directors in November 1992 and approved by the stockholders in December 1992. A total of 5,820,000 shares of common stock have been reserved for issuance under the Purchase Plan. The Purchase Plan is intended to qualify under Section 423 of the Internal Revenue Code. Employees are eligible to participate after 90 days of employment with the Company. The Purchase Plan permits eligible employees to purchase common stock through payroll deductions, which may not exceed 10% of an employee's compensation, as defined, at a price equal to 85% of the fair market value of the common stock at the beginning or end of the offering period, whichever is lower. Unless terminated 53

JABIL CIRCUIT, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- (CONTINUED) sooner, the Purchase Plan will terminate ten years from its effective date. As of August 31, 2001, a total of 4,678,595 shares had been issued under the Purchase Plan. The per-share weighted-average fair value of stock issued to employees in 2001, 2000 and 1999, respectively, under the Company's 1992 Employee Stock Purchase Plan was $17.18, $38.18 and $16.32, respectively, using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model with the identical assumptions as those listed for stock options granted during those years. D. PRO FORMA RESULTS The Company applies APB Opinion No. 25 in accounting for its stock options and, accordingly, no compensation cost has been recognized for its stock options in the consolidated financial statements. Additionally, no compensation costs are reflected for the discount related to shares granted to employees under the 1992 Employee Stock Purchase Plan. Had the Company determined compensation cost based on Statement 123, the Company's net income would have been as follows:

As discussed in Note 1(n) the disclosure presented above represents only the estimated fair value of stock options granted in fiscal 1996 and subsequent years. Such disclosure is not necessarily indicative of the fair value of stock options that could be granted by the Company in future fiscal years or of all options currently outstanding. 7. CONCENTRATION OF RISK AND SEGMENT DATA A. CONCENTRATION OF RISK Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of trade receivables. The Company performs ongoing credit evaluations of its customers and generally does not require collateral. The Company maintains reserves for potential credit losses. Sales of the Company's products are concentrated among specific customers. Sales to the following customers, expressed as a percentage of consolidated net revenue, and the percentage of accounts receivable for each customer, were as follows:

JABIL CIRCUIT, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- (CONTINUED) B. SEGMENT DATA The Company adopted the Financial Accounting Standards Board Statement No. 131, Disclosures about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information in fiscal year 1999. Statement No. 131 establishes standards for reporting information about segments in financial statements. Operating segments are defined as components of an enterprise about which separate financial information is available and that is evaluated regularly by the chief operating decision maker in deciding how to allocate resources and in assessing performance. The Company derives its revenues from providing manufacturing services to major electronic OEM's on a contract basis in various countries throughout the world. Operating segments consist four geographical regions -- the United States, Latin America, Europe and Asia. Revenues are attributed to the location in which the product is manufactured. The services provided, the manufacturing processes, class of customers and the order fulfillment process is similar and generally interchangeable across operating segments. An operating segment's performance is evaluated based upon its pre-tax operating contribution. Pre-tax operating contribution is defined as revenue less cost of revenue and selling, general and administrative expenses and does not include research and development, intangible amortization, acquisition and merger-related charges, write-off of goodwill, interest income, interest expense or income taxes. The following table sets forth segment information (in thousands):

Total foreign source revenue was approximately $2.2 billion, $1.6 billion and $0.9 billion for the years ended August 31, 2001, 2000 and 1999, respectively. Total long-lived assets related to our foreign operations was approximately $402 million, $278 million and $171 million for the years ended August 31, 2001, 2000 and 1999, respectively. 8. DERIVATIVE INSTRUMENTS AND HEDGING ACTIVITIES In June 1998 the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 133, Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Certain Hedging Activities. In June 2000 the FASB issued SFAS No. 138, Accounting for Certain Derivative Instruments and Certain Hedging Activity, an Amendment of SFAS 133. SFAS No. 133 and SFAS No. 138 require that all derivative instruments be recorded on the balance sheet at their respective fair values. The Company adopted SFAS No. 133 and SFAS No. 138 on September 1, 2000. There were no transition amounts recorded upon adoption of SFAS 133. We utilize certain derivative instruments to enhance our ability to manage risk relating to cash flow exposure. Derivative instruments are entered into for periods consistent with related underlying cash flow exposures and are not entered into for speculative purposes. On the date into which the derivative contract is entered into, the derivative is designated as a cash flow hedge. To limit exposure to differences in the U.S. dollar, British pound sterling, Italian lira and Mexican peso exchange rate fluctuations, we enter into and designate forward contracts to hedge certain of the 57

JABIL CIRCUIT, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- (CONTINUED) forecasted cash outflows. We document all relationships between hedging instruments and hedged items, as well as our risk-management objectives and strategies for undertaking various hedge transactions. Changes in the derivative fair values that are designated, effective and qualify as cash flow hedges are deferred and recorded as a component of "Accumulated other comprehensive income (loss)" until the underlying transaction is recorded in earnings. In the period in which the hedged item affects earnings, gains or losses on the derivative instrument are reclassified from "Accumulated other comprehensive income (loss)" to the Consolidated Statement of Earnings in the same financial statement category as the underlying transaction. We assess, both at the inception of the hedge and on an on-going basis, whether the derivatives that are used in hedging transactions are highly effective in offsetting changes in cash flows of hedged items. During the year ended August 31, 2001, we recorded the change in value related to cash flow hedges amounting to a gain of $0.2 million in "Accumulated other comprehensive income (loss)". There were no amounts related to the ineffectiveness of our hedging instruments. At August 31, 2001, we had a $5.1 million sterling contract with an expiration date of September 20, 2001. Jabil purchased Sterling at a rate of 1.4053 U.S. dollars to pounds sterling, which had a fair market value and carrying value of $0.2 million at August 31, 2001. 9. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES A. LEASE AGREEMENTS The Company leases certain facilities and computer services under non-cancelable operating leases. The future minimum lease payments under non-cancelable operating leases outstanding August 31, 2001 are as follows (in thousands):

LITIGATION The Company is party to certain lawsuits in the ordinary course of business. Management does not believe that these proceedings individually or in the aggregate, will have a material adverse effect on the Company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows. 10. ACQUISITIONS On September 1, 1999 the Company acquired, through our Jabil Global Services subsidiary, the net assets of EFTC Services, Inc., an electronic product service and repair business. Jabil Global Services continues to offer repair and warranty services for existing and future customers from its hub-based operations in Memphis, Tennessee; Louisville, Kentucky; and Tampa, Florida. The purchase price of approximately $27 million was paid in cash. The acquisition was accounted for as a purchase and resulted 58

JABIL CIRCUIT, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- (CONTINUED) in approximately $18 million of goodwill, which is being amortized on a straight-line basis over a period of 15 years. The consolidated financial statements include the operating results of the acquired business from the date of acquisition. On September 13, 1999 the Company issued approximately 10.2 million shares of our common stock for all of the outstanding common stock of GET Manufacturing, Inc., a China-based electronics manufacturing services provider. The business combination was accounted for as a pooling-of-interests and, accordingly, our historical consolidated financial statements presented herein have been restated to include the accounts and results of operations of GET Manufacturing, Inc. In connection with the merger, the Company recorded a merger-related charge of $7.0 million consisting of professional fees and other expenses in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 1999. In the first quarter of fiscal year 2000, we incurred a merger-related charge of $5.2 million ($4.7 million after-tax) consisting of key employee severance and legal and professional fees. On February 1, 2000, the Company acquired the net assets of Bull Information Technology, an electronic manufacturing service provider. The business operates in the city of Contagem, State of Minas Gerais, in the Belo Horizonte region Brazil. The purchase price of approximately $6 million was paid in cash. The acquisition was accounted for as a purchase and resulted in approximately $5 million of goodwill, which is being amortized, on a straight-line basis over a period of 10 years. The consolidated financial statements include the operating results of the acquired business from the date of the acquisition. Pro forma results of operations have not been presented because the effect of the acquisition was not material. On July 20, 2000 the Company acquired the share capital of Telenor Technology Services Limited, a repair and logistics services division of Telenor Mobile Communications AS, a Norwegian provider of telecommunication, data and media communication services. The purchase price of approximately $4 million was paid in cash. The acquisition was accounted for as a purchase and resulted in approximately $2 million of goodwill, which is being amortized on a straight-line basis over a period of 15 years. The acquired operations allow Jabil Global Services to offer circuit board repair and warranty services for European customers from Dublin, Ireland. The consolidated financial statements include the operating results of the acquired business from the date of acquisition. Pro forma results of operations have not been presented because the effect of the acquisition was not material. During the second quarter of fiscal 2001, we entered into a business sale agreement with Marconi plc ("Marconi") to purchase certain operations of its communications division located in the United States, England, Italy and Germany. On June 13, 2001, we consummated the English and Italian portions of the acquisition and modified certain of the terms of the transaction. The acquisition price of the English and Italian portions was approximately $172 million and is being accounted for under the purchase accounting method. The acquisition is anticipated to result in intangible assets, including goodwill, of approximately $117 million, based on management's preliminary valuation. The allocation of the acquisition price will be based on appraisals and final analysis of management. On September 4, 2001 the Company completed the portion of the transaction related to the United States. The assets purchased consist primarily of inventory and property, plant and equipment. Total consideration paid was approximately $34 million. The transaction will be accounted for under the purchase method of accounting and is anticipated to result in approximately $22 million of intangible assets, including goodwill, based on management's preliminary valuation. The allocation of the acquisition price will be based on an appraisal and final analysis of management. We anticipate completing the German portion of the acquisition during fiscal 2002. Certain payments associated with the purchase will be made in three installments with the initial payment due upon completion of the German portion of the acquisition. The remaining two payments will be made 24 and 36 months after the final close. These payments have been recorded based on the net present value of the total premiums discounted at 7%. Imputed interest is amortized over the term of the payments and is 59

JABIL CIRCUIT, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- (CONTINUED) recorded as interest expense. Pro forma results of operations have not been presented because the effect of the acquisition was not material. In connection with this acquisition, integration costs of $6.6 million ($4.1 million after-tax), consisting of professional fees and other expenses were recorded during fiscal 2001. Recent accounting pronouncements will affect both the valuation of and the amortization of intangible assets in future years. See note 12 to the Consolidated Financial Statements. 11. RESTRUCTURING During the third quarter of fiscal 2001, Jabil implemented a restructuring program to reduce its cost structure due to the current economic downturn. This restructuring program includes reductions in workforce, re-sizing of facilities and the transition of certain facilities into new customer development sites. During fiscal year 2001, the Company charged $27.4 million of restructuring costs against earnings. These restructuring charges included employee severance and benefit costs of approximately $8.9 million, costs related to lease commitments of approximately $5.6 million, fixed asset write-offs of approximately $11.5 million and other restructuring costs, primarily related to professional fees incurred in connection with the restructuring activities. The employee severance and benefit costs related to the elimination of approximately 3,700 regular employees, the majority of which were engaged in direct manufacturing activities in various manufacturing facilities around the world. Lease commitments consist primarily of future lease payments subsequent to abandonment related to re-sizing of facilities and the transition of certain facilities into new customer development sites. Fixed asset write-offs consist primarily of the leasehold improvements in the facilities that are subject to restructuring. The table below sets forth the significant components and activity in the restructuring program since the inception of the program in FY 2001:

12. NEW ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS In July 2001, the FASB issued Statement No. 141, Business Combinations, and Statement No. 142, Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets. Statement 141 requires that the purchase method of accounting be used for all business combinations initiated after June 30, 2001 as well as all purchase method business combinations completed after June 30, 2001. Statement 141 also specifies criteria intangible assets acquired in a purchase method business combination must meet to be recognized and reported apart from goodwill, noting that any purchase price allocable to an assembled workforce may not be accounted for separately. Statement 142 will require that goodwill and intangible assets with indefinite useful lives no longer be amortized, but instead tested for impairment at least annually in accordance with the provisions of Statement 142. Statement 142 will also require that intangible assets with estimable useful lives be amortized over their respective estimated useful lives to their estimated residual values, and reviewed for 60

JABIL CIRCUIT, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- (CONTINUED) impairment in accordance with FAS Statement No. 121, Accounting for the Impairment of Long-Lived Assets and for Long-Lived Assets to Be Disposed Of. The Company plans to early adopt Statements 141 and 142 beginning in the first quarter of its fiscal year ending August 31, 2002. See Note 1 to the Consolidated Financial Statements. Statement 141 will require upon adoption of Statement 142, that the Company evaluate its existing intangible assets and goodwill that were acquired in a prior purchase business combination, and to make any necessary reclassifications in order to conform with the new criteria in Statement 141 for recognition apart from goodwill. Upon adoption of Statement 142, the Company will be required to reassess the useful lives and residual values of all intangible assets acquired, and make any necessary amortization period adjustments by the end of the first interim period after adoption. In addition, to the extent an intangible asset is identified as having an indefinite useful life, the Company will be required to test the intangible asset for impairment in accordance with the provisions of Statement 142 within the first interim period. Any impairment loss will be measured as of the date of adoption and recognized as the cumulative effect of a change in accounting principle in the first interim period. In connection with Statement 142's transitional goodwill impairment evaluation, the Statement will require the Company to perform an assessment of whether there is an indication that goodwill is impaired as of the date of adoption. To accomplish this, the Company must identify its reporting units and determine the carrying value of each reporting unit by assigning the assets and liabilities, including the existing goodwill and intangible assets, to those reporting units as of the date of adoption. The Company will then have up to six months from the date of adoption to determine the fair value of each reporting unit and compare it to the reporting unit's carrying amount. To the extent a reporting unit's carrying amount exceeds its fair value, an indication exists that the reporting unit's goodwill may be impaired and the Company must perform the second step of the transitional impairment test. In the second step, the Company must compare the implied fair value of the reporting unit's goodwill, determined by allocating the reporting unit's fair value to all of it assets (recognized and unrecognized) and liabilities in a manner similar to a purchase price allocation in accordance with Statement 141, to its carrying amount, both of which would be measured as of the date of adoption. This second step is required to be completed as soon as possible, but no later than the end of the year of adoption. Any transitional impairment loss will be recognized as the cumulative effect of a change in accounting principle in the Company's statement of earnings. As of the date of adoption, the Company expects to have unamortized intangibles of approximately $149 million, all of which will be subject to the transition provisions of Statements 141 and 142. Because of the extensive effort needed to comply with adopting Statements 141 and 142, it is not practicable to reasonably estimate the impact of adopting these Statements on the Company's financial statements at the date of this report, including whether it will be required to recognize any transitional impairment losses as the cumulative effect of a change in accounting principle. Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 143 -- Accounting for Asset Retirement Obligations. Statement 143 relates to the accounting for the obligations associated with the retirement of long-lived assets. The Company is currently reviewing this statement and the impact of its adoption on its financial position, results of operations and cash flow. The Company will implement Statement 143 beginning in the first quarter of its fiscal year ending August 31, 2003. Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 144 -- Accounting for Impairment or Disposal of Long-lived Assets. Statement 144 establishes methods of accounting and reporting for the impairment of long-lived assets other than goodwill and intangible assets not being amortized. The Company is currently reviewing this statement and the impact of its adoption on its financial position, results of operations and 61

JABIL CIRCUIT, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS -- (CONTINUED) cash flows. The Company will implement Statement 144 beginning in the first quarter of its fiscal year ending August 31, 2003. 13. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS (UNAUDITED) On October 19, 2001, the Company announced its Board of Directors approval of the adoption of a Stockholder Rights Plan. Under the plan, the Company will issue a dividend of one preferred stock purchase right for each share of common stock of the Company held by stockholders of record at the close of business October 29, 2001. Each right will initially entitle stockholders to purchase a fractional share of Jabil's "Series A" preferred stock for $162.00. The rights will not become exercisable, however, until the occurrence of certain events, including the commencement of a tender offer or acquisition of 15 percent or more of Jabil's common stock. The rights are redeemable at $.001 per right of the option of Jabil. The rights plan will expire ten years from the record date. On October 25, 2001 the Company closed on an asset purchase agreement with Intel ("Intel"). The assets purchased consist primarily of inventory and property, plant and equipment located in Penang, Malaysia. Total consideration paid was approximately $37 million. The transaction will be accounted for under the purchase method of accounting and is anticipated to result in approximately $9 million of intangible assets, including goodwill, based on management's preliminary valuation. The allocation of the acquisition price will be based on an appraisal and final analysis of management. Funding for this acquisition was provided by current working capital. Simultaneous with the closings, we entered into a three-year product supply agreement to manufacture certain peripheral products for Intel. Under the terms of the transaction, approximately 900 employees will transfer to Jabil Circuit. No involuntary job losses are expected and existing employment rights will be protected. On November 16, 2001, the Company renewed its asset backed securitization program with Bank One to provide for the sale of up to $100 million of eligible accounts receivables of certain U.S. plants. The agreement expires in 6 months. 62
