Forward-Looking Statement

St. Petersburg, FL - March 19, 2014...Today Jabil Circuit, Inc. (NYSE: JBL), announced preliminary, unaudited financial results for its second quarter of fiscal year 2014. As a result of the anticipated sale of Jabil's aftermarket services business, this business is reported as "discontinued operations" in the unaudited financial results for all periods presented.

The company reported second quarter revenue of $3.6 billion.

Jabil's three reporting segments delivered the following revenue results for the company's second fiscal quarter:

Generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) operating income for the second quarter was $3.6 million and GAAP net diluted loss per share was ($0.19). The company indicated that $32.2 million in restructuring costs during the quarter impacted GAAP operating income.

As defined below, core operating income was $60.4 million and core diluted earnings per share was $0.10.

"We completed our second quarter largely as planned, with steady progress on finalizing our previously announced divestiture and winding down our relationship with our second largest customer," said Mark T. Mondello, Chief Executive Officer. "The steadfast dedication of our global workforce has contributed to our ongoing performance despite the challenges we have faced," he added.

(Definitions used: "GAAP" means U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. Jabil defines core operating income as GAAP operating income before amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation expense and related charges, restructuring and related charges, impairment of notes receivable and related charges, goodwill impairment charges, certain distressed customer charges, settlement of receivables and related charges, loss on disposal of subsidiaries and acquisition costs and purchase accounting adjustments. Jabil defines core earnings as GAAP net income before amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation expense and related charges, restructuring and related charges, impairment of notes receivable and related charges, goodwill impairment charges, certain distressed customer charges, settlement of receivables and related charges, loss on disposal of subsidiaries, acquisition costs and purchase accounting adjustments, income (loss) from discontinued operations, 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 determined under GAAP. Jabil calculates core return on invested capital 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. Jabil reports core operating income, core earnings, core diluted and basic earnings per share and core return on invested capital to provide investors an additional method for assessing operating income, earnings, diluted earnings per share and return on invested capital from what it believes are its core manufacturing operations. See the accompanying reconciliation of Jabil's core operating income to its GAAP operating income, its calculation of core earnings and core diluted earnings per share to its GAAP net income and GAAP earnings per share, its calculation of core return on invested capital and additional information in the supplemental information.)

Business Update
Jabil provided guidance for its third quarter of fiscal year 2014, which began on March 1, 2014.

(GAAP net earnings per share for the third quarter of fiscal year 2014 are currently estimated to include $0.03 per share for amortization of intangibles, $0.07 per share for stock-based compensation expense and related charges, $0.16 to $0.06 per share for restructuring and related charges and income from discontinued operations of $1.20 per share.)

Year over Year Third Quarter Segment Revenue Guidance:

"As we move through the back half of the fiscal year, I'm encouraged and pleased with activities surrounding multiple program ramps from new business wins," said Mondello. "At a time when legacy EMS business is showing very modest growth, we are fortunate to have the scale and technical capabilities which allow us to embrace new growth opportunities," Mondello stated. Management provided fiscal year 2015 guidance of $1.65 to $1.95 core earnings per share.
