Jabil reports $275.9-million net loss

Jabil Circuit took a whopping $317-million goodwill impairment charge in its first fiscal quarter, wiping away what would have been a $46-million profit.

The St. Petersburg electronics manufacturer wound up reporting a net loss of $275.9-million, or $1.34 a share, in the quarter ended Nov. 30, compared with net income of $62-million, or 30 cents, in the same period a year-ago. Revenues fell 6.7 percent, to $223.7-million, from $239.7-million.

Goodwill impairment reflects the declining fair-market value of an asset. In a regulatory filing Monday, Jabil said the goodwill charge reflected a number of factors, including a deteriorating global economic environment leading to a decline in customer demand, the ongoing credit crunch and the company's sharp drop in market capitalization.

Jabil's average stock price for the first quarter was down 77 percent from its fourth quarter average. Its shares closed Monday at $6.63, down 35 cents, or 5 percent.

  5. Unlicensed contractor accused of faking death triggers policy change at Pinellas licensing board

    Local Government

    The unlicensed contractor accused of faking his death to avoid angry homeowners has triggered an immediate change in policy at the Pinellas County Construction Licensing Board.

    Last year Glenn and Judith Holland said they paid a contractor thousands of dollars to renovate their future retirement home in Seminole. But when they tried to move in on Dec. 14, they said the home was in shambles and uninhabitable. They sent a text message to contractor Marc Anthony Perez at 12:36 p.m. looking for answers. Fourteen minutes later, they got back this text: "This is Marc's daughter, dad passed away on the 7th of December in a car accident. Sorry." Turns out Perez was still alive. Now the Hollands are suing him in Pinellas-Pasco circuit court. [LARA CERRI   |   Times]
