Sanmina Announces Fourth Quarter and Year-End Results
SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Sanmina Corporation (Nasdaq: SANM), a leading supplier of integrated design and electronics manufacturing solutions (EMS), today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and twelve months ended September 29, 2001. Results for the prior periods have been restated to reflect the company's March 1, 2001 acquisition of Segerstrom & Svensson. In addition, earnings per share for the prior periods have been restated due to the company's two-for-one stock splits effective January 8, 2001 and March 22, 2000. Fourth quarter fiscal 2001 highlights include: -- CASH EARNINGS PER SHARE OF $0.04, EXCLUDING CHARGES -- FOURTH QUARTER SG&A EXPENSE REDUCED OVER 46% COMPARED TO FOURTH QUARTER LAST YEAR, EXCLUDING CHARGES -- SANMINA'S LEADERSHIP IN EMS INDUSTRY TO BE FURTHER ENHANCED WITH UPCOMING SCI MERGER -- STOCK REPURCHASE PROGRAM INITIATED Summary of Financial Results (excluding merger, restructuring and other infrequent or unusual charges): (Thousands, except per share data) Q4:01 Q4:00 12MOS01 12MOS00 Revenues $600,737 $1,367,207 $4,054,048 $4,239,102 Operating margin 1%% 12% 10% 11% Operating income $3,425 $162,437 $409,236 $451,574 Net income $3,648 $102,377 $266,421 $277,144 EPS - basic $0.01 $0.33 $0.83 $0.91 EPS - diluted $0.01 $0.30 $0.79 $0.85 Cash EPS - basic $0.04 $0.34 $0.95 $0.96 Cash EPS - diluted $0.04 $0.32 $0.90 $0.90 The financial tables, which follow this release, contain a presentation of Sanmina's results both before and after giving effect to merger, restructuring and other infrequent or unusual charges. Management Continues to Lower Selling, General and Administrative Expenses For the year ended September 29, 2001, Sanmina reported revenues of $4.1 billion, compared to $4.2 billion for the year ended September 30, 2000. Revenues for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2001 were $600.7 million. The decrease in revenues reflects the continued slowdown in the economy and customer end-markets. During the fourth quarter of this year, selling, general and administrative expenses decreased to $39.0 million from $42.1 million in the third quarter of this year and from $71.5 million, or a 46 percent decrease, as compared to the fourth quarter of last year. The continuing decrease in these expenses reflects management's strong financial controls and commitment to realign resources to meet demand. Net income for this year was $266.4 million, compared to $277.1 million for the year ended September 30, 2000. For the fourth quarter this year, net income was $3.6 million, or $0.04 cash earnings per share. The financial results noted above do not include merger, restructuring and other infrequent or unusual charges. In addition, restructuring charges as well as other charges related to specific customer issues totaled $218.0 million. Also, impairment charges of approximately $40.0 million relating to previously capitalized goodwill and intangibles have been written off as a result of specific plant closures. For the year ended September 29, 2001, Sanmina reported $1.4 billion in cash and investments. Cash provided by operations this quarter was $127.4 million. At year-end, the company had a current ratio of 5.3, working capital of $2.1 billion and shareholders' equity of $1.8 billion. Fiscal 2001 Reflects Company's Focus on Business Fundamentals and Growth Strategy "Over the past five years, Sanmina has achieved record growth benefiting from the industry's increasing trend in outsourcing, robust growth in our customers' end-markets, our leading-edge technology and our expanding manufacturing capabilities," said Jure Sola, Sanmina's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "While the trend in outsourcing is continuing, this year was one of the most challenging in our history due to the weak economy and lower capital spending. In building Sanmina, our focus has been on the fundamentals: financial management, customer responsiveness and manufacturing flexibility. As a result, our management team has been able to successfully respond to the current marketplace challenges and opportunities. We have rationalized our manufacturing operations, downsized capacity as appropriate, increased our operating cash flow, and sustained our record of solid profitability. Simultaneously, we have kept our eye on the future and our goal of becoming the world's premier EMS company. "In support of our growth strategy, during the year, we expanded our global footprint and our end-to-end manufacturing solutions capabilities," continued Sola. "As a result of our acquisition of Segerstrom & Svensson, a leading supplier of integrated enclosure systems, we can now provide our customers with full system integration in North America, the United Kingdom, Eastern Europe, Scandinavia, and South America. As a result of our planned merger with SCI, which we expect to complete in the current quarter, Sanmina will have a manufacturing presence in over 20 countries. In addition to increasing our global manufacturing and order fulfillment capabilities, this combination further enhances our technology leadership position, one of our core strategic advantages. "While the current market environment continues to be difficult, we are seeing a number of growth opportunities in key sectors of our customer markets, in new product programs as well as in the trend in outsourcing as OEMs strive to increase their operating efficiencies. Underscoring our confidence in the EMS industry, Sanmina's solid business opportunity, and our commitment to shareholders, we recently began a stock repurchase program. "In summary, we believe our strong and expanding customer relationships and our advanced engineering technology and global integrated service offering will serve us well over the long-term and keep us at the forefront of our industry," Sola concluded. Company Outlook Sanmina projects first quarter fiscal 2002 revenue to be approximately $600 to $630 million, and cash earnings per share to be between $0.03 to $0.04 before merger, restructuring and other infrequent or unusual charges. These estimates are prior to Sanmina's merger with SCI, which is expected to close in the first quarter of Sanmina's fiscal 2002.
