Let’s see how things have shaped up prior to this announcement.

Factors to Consider

Fabrinet’s second-quarter results are expected to have benefited from strong demand for its optical communications services by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), despite coronavirus-induced supply-chain disruptions.

Moreover, the company’s wide range of complex engineering and manufacturing service offerings, flexible low-cost manufacturing platform, process optimization capabilities and robust supply-chain management are expected to have been key growth drivers.

The company enables OEM customers to reduce their manufacturing costs, while maintaining or enhancing the design, quality and delivery schedule for their products. This is expected to have aided client wins, thereby driving customer base expansion in the to-be-reported quarter.

Further, the company’s advanced precision manufacturing capabilities, which include optical communications, industrial lasers, automotive and sensors to produce next-generation products, are expected to have driven demand from customers in complex industries.
