Reading time ( words)

Celestica Inc., a leader in design, manufacturing and supply chain solutions for the world's most innovative companies, announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 (Q2 2021).

“Celestica’s solid second quarter results underscore the successful execution of our strategy to reshape our portfolio and build a resilient, diversified business with a strong foundation for growth. Primarily driven by higher Hardware Platform Solutions (HPS) concentration and strong performance from our Capital Equipment business, we achieved Q2 2021 revenue, non-IFRS adjusted EPS* and non-IFRS operating margin* at, or significantly exceeding, the high end of our Q2 2021 guidance ranges. This represents our sixth straight quarter of year-to-year non-IFRS operating margin* improvement as we continue to shift our business mix towards our higher-margin, higher growth Lifecycle Solutions portfolio,” said Rob Mionis, President and CEO, Celestica. “As we look towards the third quarter, our non-IFRS operating margin* guidance is 4.0% (representing the mid-point of our third quarter revenue and non-IFRS adjusted EPS* guidance ranges). If achieved, this would represent the highest non-IFRS operating margin* performance for the company in twenty years. Furthermore, we currently expect our fourth quarter non-IFRS operating margin* performance to be at similar, or better, levels.”

“I am proud of our global teams’ ability to continue to operate with agility to successfully navigate industry headwinds and deliver innovative solutions intended to enable our customers to achieve their objectives. I am confident that as we ramp new programs, we are well-positioned to build on our momentum and deliver profitable growth in the second half of 2021.”
