EMS firm Fabrinet has announced GAAP revenue of $370.5 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2017, up by 34% compared to $276.4 million revenue for the comparable period in fiscal year 2016. GAAP net income for Q4 FY2017 was $27.4 million, up from $19.7 million in the same period of the previous fiscal year.

For the full fiscal year 2017, GAAP revenue was $1.4 billion for fiscal year 2017, an increase of 45% compared to total revenue of $976.7 million for fiscal year 2016. GAAP net income was $97.1 million, up from $61.9 million for fiscal year 2016.

“Our strong fourth quarter performance, with revenue and net income per diluted share that exceeded our guidance ranges, represented an excellent finish to a record year for Fabrinet. The fourth quarter was our 12th consecutive quarter of year-over-year revenue growth, at 34%. This performance was driven by a combination of growth from both existing customers and new customer programs,” said Tom Mitchell, Chief Executive Officer of Fabrinet. "In addition to delivering a strong financial performance, fiscal year 2017 was also significant from a strategic perspective. We substantially increased our manufacturing capacity and further developed our new product introduction capabilities, especially outside the optical communications market, positioning us to generate strong returns from a diversifying customer base. With our expanded capacity and a robust pipeline of opportunities, we are optimistic that our success in fiscal year 2017 will extend into fiscal year 2018.”
