Sanmina Revises Third Quarter Outlook

Jun 20, 2001, 01:00 ET from Sanmina Corporation

    SAN JOSE, Calif., June 20 /PRNewswire/ --
 Sanmina Corporation (Nasdaq:   SANM), a leading electronics contract
 manufacturer, announced today that its 2001 third quarter revenues and
 earnings are being impacted by the continued slowdown in its end-markets. For
 its fiscal third quarter, ending June 30, 2001, revenues are currently
 expected to be in the range of $760 million to $775 million.  Diluted earnings
 per share on a GAAP basis before one-time charges are expected to be
 approximately $0.10.
     "Despite the current economic environment, we believe Sanmina is well
 positioned to strengthen its leading market position in the electronics
 manufacturing sector," continued Sola.  "The company has a successful track
 record in providing its customers with world class manufacturing on a cost
 efficient basis, and we are committed to continuing this tradition.  We also
 believe that the downturn in the electronics industry will cause original
 equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to become more focused on outsourcing as a
 means of reducing costs and capital commitments.  Accordingly, we are
 aggressively pursuing outsourcing and divestiture opportunities.  In
 particular, we are nearing agreement in principle for the acquisition of an
 advanced engineering and manufacturing facility from a leading communications
 OEM.  We expect to provide further details regarding this opportunity in the
 next several days.  In summary, we are staying focused on our growth strategy
 and are working to balance our costs while continuing to invest in our
 future," Sola concluded.
     Outlook information regarding the fourth quarter will be included in the
 company's third quarter earnings announcement on July 18, 2001.
