Tom Mitchell, Chief Executive Officer of Fabrinet, said, "We are pleased with our solid revenue growth in the fourth quarter and full year, and in continuing our long history of profitability. We believe we are expanding our position as a leading specialized engineering and manufacturing partner for the growing optical communications, industrial laser, and sensor markets. We are currently managing the transfer of multiple projects from various customers to Fabrinet in all of these target markets. Our recently completed IPO provided us with approximately $24 million in additional working capital, and we expect our asset-light manufacturing model to continue to enable us to generate strong return on invested capital."
Mitchell added, "Looking ahead, we believe that macro trends, including continuing demand for more bandwidth and an increasing number of applications for optics, industrial lasers and sensors, will continue to work in our favor. We believe we can continue to attract new customers, as well as engage in additional projects with existing customers. These growth drivers, combined with good revenue visibility from contracts that are currently under agreement, makes us optimistic about our prospects. With our unique engineering and manufacturing capabilities and expertise, and expanding opportunities, we believe we are well positioned to continue to grow our business and build value for our shareholders over the longer-term."
Based on information available as of August 18, 2010, Fabrinet is issuing guidance for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 as follows:
The company expects first quarter revenue to be in the range of $160 million to $165 million. GAAP net income is expected to be in the range of $0.38 to $0.40 per share, based on approximately 34.3 million fully diluted weighted average shares outstanding.
