Jabil Posts Second Quarter Results

Diversification Strategy Continues to Drive Positive Results

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – March 14, 2019 Today, Jabil Inc. (NYSE: JBL), reported preliminary, unaudited financial results for its second quarter of fiscal year 2019.

“I’m extremely pleased with our outstanding second quarter results, which further demonstrate the success of our diversification strategy,” said CEO Mark Mondello. “Quite simply, our approach is working, both in terms of our strategy and operational excellence. This is well-illustrated by our performance in the first half of the fiscal year,” he added.

Second Quarter of Fiscal Year 2019 Highlights:

 

   

Net revenue: $6.1 billion

 

   

Diversified Manufacturing Services (DMS) year-on-year revenue decrease: 7 percent

Healthcare Business Update:

During the second fiscal quarter, Jabil successfully transitioned the first two sites from Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices Companies (JJMDC) as part of the previously announced strategic collaboration between the companies.

“I’m honored to welcome our new employees from these outstanding healthcare facilities,” said Mondello. “Our new team members bring forward terrific experience, elevating and expanding Jabil’s capabilities in our healthcare business,” he added.

General Business Update:

“As we move into the back half of our fiscal year, our outlook for revenue and core EPS remain strong, supported by strength in our healthcare, retail, cloud and industrial businesses,” said Mondello.

Third Quarter of Fiscal Year 2019 Outlook:

 

•  Net revenue

  

$5.7 billion to $6.3 billion

(1) Core operating income and core diluted earnings per share exclude anticipated adjustments of $7.0 million for amortization of intangibles (or $0.05 per diluted share), $15.0 million for stock-based compensation expense and related charges (or $0.09 per diluted share), $6.0 to $3.0 million for restructuring and related charges (or $0.04 to $0.02 per diluted share) and $16.0 to $8.0 million for acquisition and integration charges (or $0.10 to $0.05 per diluted share).


(Definitions: “U.S. GAAP” means U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. Jabil defines core operating income as U.S. GAAP operating income before amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation expense and related charges, restructuring and related charges, distressed customer charges, acquisition and integration charges, loss on disposal of subsidiaries, settlement of receivables and related charges, impairment of notes receivable and related charges, goodwill impairment charges and business interruption and impairment charges, net. Jabil defines core earnings as U.S. GAAP net income before amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation expense and related charges, restructuring and related charges, distressed customer charges, acquisition and integration charges, loss on disposal of subsidiaries, settlement of receivables and related charges, impairment of notes receivable and related charges, goodwill impairment charges, business interruption and impairment charges, net, impairment on securities, income (loss) from discontinued operations, gain (loss) on sale of discontinued operations and certain other expenses, net of tax and certain deferred tax valuation allowance charges. Jabil defines core diluted earnings per share as core earnings divided by the weighted average number of outstanding diluted shares as determined under U.S. GAAP. Jabil calculates its core return on invested capital (“ROIC”) by annualizing its after-tax core operating income for its most recently ended quarter and dividing that by a two quarter average net invested capital base. The Company calculates its after-tax core operating income as its core operating income less a certain tax effect (the amount is determined by applying the core effective tax rate to core operating income less interest expense). The Company calculates its average net invested capital base as the sum of the averages of its stockholders’ equity, current and non-current portions of its notes payable and long-term debt less the average of its cash and cash equivalents. The calculation of the averages discussed in the previous sentence is based on the addition of the account balance at the end of the most recently-ended quarter to the account balance at the end of the prior quarter and dividing by two. Jabil defines adjusted free cash flow as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities plus cash receipts on sold receivables less net capital expenditures (acquisition of property, plant and equipment less proceeds and advances from sale of property, plant and equipment). Jabil reports core operating income, core earnings, core diluted earnings per share, core ROIC and adjusted free cash flow to provide investors an additional method for assessing operating income, earnings, diluted earnings per share and free cash flow from what it believes are its core manufacturing operations. See the accompanying reconciliation of Jabil’s core operating income to its U.S. GAAP operating income, its calculation of core earnings and core diluted earnings per share to its U.S. GAAP net income and U.S. GAAP earnings per share and additional information in the supplemental information.)

Forward Looking Statements: This release contains forward-looking statements, including those regarding our anticipated financial results for our second quarter of fiscal year 2019 and our guidance for future financial performance in our third quarter of fiscal year 2019 (including, net revenue, total company and segment revenue, U.S. GAAP operating income, U.S. GAAP diluted earnings per share, core operating income (Non-GAAP), core diluted earnings per share (Non-GAAP) results and the components thereof, including but not limited to amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation expense and related charges, restructuring and related charges and acquisition and integration charges). The statements in this release are based on current expectations, forecasts and assumptions involving risks and uncertainties that could cause actual outcomes and results to differ materially from our current expectations. Such factors include, but are not limited to: our determination as we finalize our financial results for our second quarter of fiscal year 2019 that our financial results and conditions differ from our current preliminary unaudited numbers set forth herein; unexpected, adverse seasonal impacts on demand; performance in the markets in which we operate; changes in macroeconomic conditions; the occurrence of, success and expected financial results from, product ramps; our ability to maintain and improve costs, quality and delivery for our customers; whether our restructuring activities and the realignment of our capacity will adversely affect our cost structure, ability to service customers and labor relations; reliance on a limited number of suppliers for critical components; changes in technology; competition; anticipated growth for us and our industry that may not occur; managing rapid growth; managing rapid declines in customer demand and other related customer challenges that may occur; our ability to successfully consummate acquisitions and divestitures; managing the integration of businesses we acquire; risks associated with international sales and operations; retaining key personnel; our dependence on a limited number of large customers; and adverse changes in political conditions, in the U.S. and internationally, including, among others, adverse changes in tax laws and rates and our ability to estimate and manage their impact. Additional factors that could cause such differences can be found in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2018 and our other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We assume no obligation to update these forward-looking statements.


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

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

Meeting and Replay Information: Jabil will hold a conference call to discuss its second quarter results today at 4:30 p.m. ET. To access the live audio webcast and view the accompanying slide presentation, visit the Investor Relations section of Jabil’s website, located at https://investors.jabil.com.

In fiscal year 2019, the adoption of Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2016-15, “Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments” resulted in a reclassification of cash flows from operating activities to investing activities for cash receipts for the deferred purchase price receivable on asset-backed securitization transactions. The adoption of this standard does not reflect a change in the underlying business or activities. The effects of this change are applied retrospectively to all prior periods.
