Jabil Circuit profit almost doubles

ST. PETERSBURG — Electronic parts maker Jabil Circuit Inc. said Tuesday its net income nearly doubled on strong sales growth across its divisions and lower expenses, and issued an earnings outlook that topped expectations.

The St. Petersburg company reported net income of $114.3 million, or 52 cents per share, for the quarter that ended Aug. 31. That was up from $58.7 million, or 27 cents per share, during the same period a year earlier. Revenue rose 10.9 percent, to $4.28 billion, from $3.86 billion a year earlier.

Jabil said its core earnings, excluding stock-based compensation and other items, were 62 cents per share. Analysts surveyed by FactSet had expected core earnings of 56 cents per share on revenue of $4.42 billion.

"Jabil achieved growth through a combination of market share gains, new customer wins and new production from its existing customer base," the company said in a news release.

It also said selling, general and administrative expenses fell 5.2 percent, to $152.2 million.

For the full year, net income more than doubled to almost $383 million, or $1.73 per share, from $170.8 million, or 78 cents per share, a year earlier. Revenue rose 23.2 percent, to $16.52 billion, from $13.41 billion in the previous year.

The company said full-year revenue in its diversified manufacturing services business rose 43 percent

Jabil said it expects revenue for the first quarter of its fiscal 2012 year to rise 8 percent, to $4.3 billion to $4.5 billion, with earnings per share of 52 cents to 60 cents. It expects adjusted earnings per share of 62 cents to 70 cents. Analysts were expecting 61 cents per share on revenue of $4.42 billion.

    President Donald Trump's ban on travelers from six majority-Muslim countries is set to be replaced as soon as this weekend with more targeted restrictions on visits to the United States that would vary by country, officials familiar with the plans said Friday. The new restrictions, aimed at preventing security threats from entering the United States, could go into effect Sunday after the conclusion of a 90-day policy review undertaken as part of the administration's original travel ban. Though the restrictions would differ for each country, people living in the targeted nations could be prevented from traveling to the United States or could face increased scrutiny as they seek to obtain a visa.
