"Our fourth quarter results were solid. Revenue was up modestly; operating margins expanded 40 basis points sequentially, and we generated cash flow from operations of $90 million for the quarter and $318 million for the fiscal year.  Our continued focus on cash generation provided us the financial flexibility to reduce our long-term debt $275 million for the year," said Jure Sola, chairman and CEO of Sanmina.

"Our revenue outlook for the first quarter is slightly down sequentially as a result of seasonality and slower than anticipated ramp of new programs. We expect to deliver modest growth and further improve our financial results for fiscal year 2014," said Sola.

The electronics manufacturer expects revenue between $1.425 billion and $1.475 billion for the fiscal first quarter of 2014.
