“The team delivered yet another solid year and I’m pleased with the progress we’ve made relative to our financial objectives,” said CEO Kenny Wilson. “As we move into the new fiscal year, I feel strongly that we have the right team, capabilities, and diversified portfolio to support good momentum into FY24 and beyond.”

Jabil also said that its Board of Directors made amendments to the existing share repurchase program, which had approximately $776 million outstanding as of August 31. The amendment increases the authorization for the repurchase of common stock to a total of up to $2.5B.
