During FY2003 the firm entered into divestiture transactions with Lucent Technologies (Shanghai), Seagate Technology (Mexico), Quantum Corporation (Malaysia), NEC (Japan), and Philips (multiple locations)
Jabil provided guidance for its full fiscal year 2005 indicating that it currently foresees revenue in a range of $7.2 to $7.4 billion.
The two major trends in the EMS industry is movement to lower cost locations, particularly China, and expansion of services into design arena. Several EMS providers are encroaching on original design manufactures (ODM) market that is dominated by Taiwan firms. EMS firms are also if not shifting from traditional major target markets at least more aggressively pursuing other markets like medical and automotive. This might help lessen impact of cyclical downturns.
