Fabrinet's 3Q looks good with 32% increase in revenue

Fabrinet reported revenue of USD 250.9 million for fiscal 3Q/2016, an increase of 32 percent compared to total revenue of USD 189.5 million for the comparable period in fiscal 2015.
Tom Mitchell, Chief Executive Officer of Fabrinet, said, "We delivered a strong third quarter with revenue and earnings per share above expectations. In the third quarter we particularly benefited from positive trends in the optical industry, which resulted in higher than expected demand from new customer programs and increasing production from existing customer programs. With robust industry trends, we expect the momentum we are experiencing to continue into the fourth quarter. Construction on the first building of our new campus in Thailand is progressing faster than anticipated. While we have sufficient capacity to meet near-term demand, we now expect the building, which will significantly increase our capacity, to be completed by the end of the first quarter of fiscal-year 2017 with first customer shipments beginning in the third quarter. Our new campus will ultimately more than double our manufacturing space, enabling us to continue to scale our business for many years."
