“After a stronger than expected start to the fiscal quarter, our factories were adversely impacted by workforce and supply chain disruptions associated with COVID-19. First and foremost, the safety and well-being of our people is our number one priority. Despite the near-term financial setback, our long-term strategy remains unchanged.”
The Jabil earnings report also includes a change to its fiscal 2020 guidance. The company notes that its previous outlook didn’t take into account the coronavirus from China. Due to that, it is withdrawing its guidance for the fiscal year.
