Celestica’s revenue jumps

The Toronto-based electronics company clocked in revenue of C$1.94 billion, a 13 per cent increase compared to Q2 2022’s C$1.72 billion.

Revenue from its advanced technology solutions segment increased 24 per cent from Q2 2022, while its connectivity and cloud solutions segment revenue increased 5 per cent above Q2 2022.

Adjusted earnings per share under non-international financial reporting standards was $0.55, compared with $0.44 for Q2 2022.

The company’s president and CEO, Rob Mionis, said in a news release that the quarter exceeded the high end of its guidance ranges on revenue, with an operating margin above 5 per cent.

“Our business delivered solid results as our team continues to execute on our strategic plan and meet the evolving needs of our customers. Our diversified portfolio is driving revenue growth and margin expansion, despite softness in the semi capital equipment market. We are pleased to raise our 2023 annual financial outlook and expect our strong performance to continue into 2024 as all of our markets are poised for growth,” Mionis said in a statement.
