Despite the lighter revenues, adjusted gross margin increased 60 basis points and adjusted operating margin increased 10 basis points compared to the same period last year.
“The first quarter of fiscal 2016 was exemplified by operating with discipline, driving a richer product mix and deploying capital thoughtfully,” said Mike McNamara, CEO at Flextronics. “We continued to return meaningful capital to our shareholders this quarter as we repurchased almost 8 million shares for approximately $100 million.”
“We generated $362 million in cash flow from operations driving to a free cash flow of $225 million during the quarter,” said Chris Collier, CFO at Flextronics. “Our consistent strong free cash flow reflects our deliberate discipline and execution over our net working capital and capital investments.”
For the second quarter ending September 25, 2015, revenue is expected to be in the range of $5.9 to $6.5 billion and adjusted EPS is expected to be in the range of $0.22 to $0.28 per diluted share.
