Snyder on Nov 05, 2015 05:17 PM, when the stock traded at $24.48 . Highlights We see revenue increasing 1.7% in FY 16 (Sep.) and 4.1% in FY 17, following 2.6% growth in FY 15. SANM reported Sep-Q EPS of $0.57 as sales dropped 3%, due to a larger-than-expected fall in the Communications segment. Demand in most end-markets remains stable, and we are encouraged by recent customer diversification. We look for particular strength from the De- fense/Industrial/Medical space as well as from Computing & Storage end-markets. We see flat sales within Communications Networks by the end of 2015, but see growth potential over time. Product ramp-ups and expanding customer base will help revenue growth over the coming quarters. Gross margins will remain relatively stable in FY 16 and FY 17, compared to an 7.8% margin in FY 15. Higher volume and healthy product mix should support results. Increased efficiencies from plant consolidations and more stringent cost controls should help operating margins. We look for operating EPS of $2.34 in FY 16, in- creasing to $2.48 for FY 17 aided by share re- purchases. Our estimates exclude restructur- ing-related and other various one-time and non-cash charges. Investment Rationale/Risk Our Hold recommendation is based on valua- tion, and fundamentals seeing modest improve- ment. SANM's visibility for many of its end- markets is low, given that it operates near the bottom of the supply chain. SANM's relatively large exposure to the growing telecommunica- tions segment is a long-term positive, but will continue to be a short-term headwind. Cost- containment efforts and a more favorable sales mix will likely aid operating margins in the com- ing quarters. Debt restructuring and improving cash flow should continue to strengthen SANM's balance sheet. Shares are fairly val- ued. Risks to our recommendation and target price include weaker end-market demand than we project, the potential loss of major customers and any complications with restructuring. The positions of chairman and CEO are held by the same individual, a corporate governance con- cern. Our 12-month target price of $24 is based on a P/E of 10.4X to our fiscal year 2016 EPS, a slight discount to peers, warranted given its below average revenue growth. Analyst's Risk Assessment LOW MEDIUM HIGH Our risk assessment reflects the volatility of SANM's business model, our concerns about vulnerability to market share losses and the company's high debt level relative to its peer group.

Business Summary November 05, 2015 CORPORATE OVERVIEW. Sanmina Corp. (SANM), a provider of electronic manufacturing services (EMS), works with customers in a number of industries, including communications, enterprise computing and storage, multimedia, industrial and semiconductor capital equipment, defense and aerospace, medical, CleanTech and automotive. The company manages its operations as two businesses: Integrated Manufacturing Solutions and Compo- nents, Products and Services. Integrated Manufacturing Solutions consist of printed circuit board assem- bly and test, final system assembly and test, and direct-order-fulfillment. Components, products and services include interconnect systems (printed circuit board fabrication, back- plane and cable assemblies) and mechanical systems (enclosures, precision machining and plastic injec- tion molding). The company's products include memory and solid state drive (SSD) products from its Viking Technology division; defense and aerospace products from SCI Technology Inc. (SCI); and storage prod- ucts from its Newisys division and optical and RF (radio frequency) modules. SANM's services include de- sign, engineering, logistics, and repair services. MARKET PROFILE. We believe the EMS industry remains well positioned to capture new business from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). This is due to our view that the cost advantages associated with the outsourcing model are beginning to be understood by potential participants. We think the benefits of this strategy are ample, with companies being able to reduce costs and reallocate resources toward their core competencies (e.g., marketing and research and development). We see a number of key trends emerging in the EMS landscape. For instance, OEMs have begun to limit the number of EMS providers with which they conduct business. We think this move results from cus- tomers' desire to streamline their operations. While in the past they may have utilized five or six vendors, many now seek to limit that total to one or two. We believe this development bodes well for larger EMS companies such as SANM, as their broad range of service offerings and worldwide presence enable them to fulfill an entire slate of customer requests, in our opinion. However, SANM faces larger rivals that might benefit even more from this industry trend toward consolidation. Seasonality in the company's business has historically been driven by customer and product mix, particu- larly in the end markets which its customers serve, with the first half of its fiscal year generally having the lowest revenue levels. For SANM's integrated manufacturing solutions business, the company faces competition from other ma- jor global EMS companies such as Benchmark Electronics, Celestica, Flextronics International, Jabil Cir- cuits, and Plexus. Customer concentration is high compared with many companies, but we view SANM's concentration as in line with EMS industry peers. In FY 14 (Sep.), no customer accounted for more than 10% of sales. The 10 largest customers accounted for over 50% of FY 14, FY 13, and FY 12 sales. Sales from international opera- tions were 83% of the total in FY 14, higher than the 82% in FY 13 and FY 12, and significantly higher than the 69% posted back in FY 07, reflecting a strategy to move production to lower-cost locations in Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe. Potential advantages from running global operations include close proximity to customers and suppliers, and tax incentives. FINANCIAL TRENDS. In FY 10, SANM regained GAAP basis profitability, following annual losses for eight consecutive fiscal years with a number of charges related to goodwill writedowns and other restructuring activities. Goodwill was written down to nil at the end of FY 08, and the company took an impairment charge of $478 million. A one-for-six reverse split of the common shares became effective August 14, 2009. We believe the company is making efforts to improve its gross margins and operating income, as well as its inventory turnover and free cash flow generation. Long-term debt was $387 million at the end of FY 14, which was down from $563 million as of the end of FY 13. We still view the level of debt as significant. Corporate Information Investor Contact P.
