Management also announced that the Jabil Board of Directors has authorized the repurchase of up to $100 million worth of shares of the Company’s common stock during the next twelve months. The shares will be repurchased from time-to-time in open market or through privately negotiated transactions at the Company’s discretion, subject to factors such as market conditions, levels of cash generation from operations, cash requirements for capital expenses and acquisitions and stock price. The repurchased shares should help to minimize the dilution from the Company's employee equity issuance.
(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 impairment charges, goodwill impairment charges, certain distressed customer charges, settlement of receivables and related charges and loss on disposal of subsidiaries. Jabil defines core earnings as GAAP net income before amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation expense and related charges, restructuring and impairment charges, goodwill impairment charges, certain distressed customer charges, settlement of receivables and related charges, loss on disposal of subsidiaries, 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 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.)
