Third Quarter 2014 Highlights

  • IFRS EPS: $0.19 per share, compared to $0.31 per share for the third quarter of 2013
  • Adjusted EPS (non-IFRS): $0.26 per share, towards the high end of our guidance of $0.21 to $0.27 per share (announced July 24, 2014), compared to $0.22 per share for the third quarter of 2013
  • ROIC (non-IFRS): 21.3%, compared to 19.8% for the third quarter of 2013

"Celestica delivered strong operating margin and free cash flow performance in the third quarter driven primarily through our continued focus on operational excellence and favorable program mix," said Craig Muhlhauser, Celestica's President and Chief Executive Officer.

"Despite overall demand softness in the third quarter, primarily in our Communications end market, we improved our adjusted operating margin and generated higher free cash flow compared to the second quarter of this year, as well as to the same period of 2013. While we expect the overall business environment to remain challenging in the near term, we remain committed to investing for the future growth and profitability of Celestica while achieving improvements in our margins, ROIC and free cash flow."

i.   


International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) net earnings for the third quarter of 2014 included an aggregate charge of $0.04 (pre-tax) per share for employee stock-based compensation expense and amortization of intangible assets (excluding computer software). This is within the range we provided on July 24, 2014 of an aggregate charge of between $0.03 and $0.07 per share for these items (see the tables in Schedule 1 attached hereto for per-item charges).

ii.  


Non-IFRS measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other public companies that use IFRS or other generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). See "Non-IFRS Supplementary Information" below for information on our rationale for the use of non-IFRS measures, and Schedule 1 for, among other items, non-IFRS measures included in this press release, as well as their definitions, uses, and a reconciliation of non-IFRS to IFRS measures (where a comparable IFRS measure exists).
