SCHEDULE IV

FLEXTRONICS INTERNATIONAL LTD. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO RECONCILIATION OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

(1) To supplement Flextronics' unaudited selected financial data presented

on a basis consistent with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles

("GAAP"), the Company discloses certain non-GAAP financial measures

that exclude certain charges, including non-GAAP gross profit,

non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP

operating income, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per

diluted share. These supplemental measures exclude, among other

things, stock-based compensation expense, restructuring charges,

intangible amortization, gains or losses on divestitures and certain

other items. These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with or an

alternative for GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used

by other companies. We believe that these non-GAAP measures have

limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated

with Flextronics's results of operations as determined in accordance

with GAAP and that these measures should only be used to evaluate

Flextronics's results of operations in conjunction with the

corresponding GAAP measures. The presentation of this additional

information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a

substitute for the most directly comparable GAAP measures. We

compensate for the limitations of non-GAAP financial measures by

relying upon GAAP results to gain a complete picture of Company

performance.

In calculating non-GAAP financial measures, we exclude certain items

to facilitate a review of the comparability of the Company's operating

performance on a period-to-period basis because such items are not, in

our view, related to the Company's ongoing operational performance.

We use non-GAAP measures to evaluate the operating performance of our

business, for comparison with forecasts and strategic plans, for

calculating return on investment, and for benchmarking performance

externally against competitors. In addition, management's incentive

compensation is determined using these non-GAAP measures. Also, when

evaluating potential acquisitions, we exclude the items described

below from consideration of the target's performance and valuation.

Since we find these measures to be useful, we believe that investors

benefit from seeing results "through the eyes" of management in

addition to seeing GAAP results. We believe that these non-GAAP

measures, when read in conjunction with the Company's GAAP financials,

provide useful information to investors by offering:

-- the ability to make more meaningful period-to-period comparisons

of the Company's on-going operating results;

-- the ability to better identify trends in the Company's underlying

business and perform related trend analyses;

-- a better understanding of how management plans and measures the

Company's underlying business; and

-- an easier way to compare the Company's operating results against

analyst financial models and operating results of competitors

that supplement their GAAP results with non-GAAP financial

measures.

The following are explanations of each of the adjustments that we

incorporate into non-GAAP measures, as well as the reasons for

excluding each of these individual items in the reconciliations of

these non-GAAP financial measures:

Stock-based compensation expense consists of non-cash charges for

the estimated fair value of stock options and unvested share bonus

awards granted to employees. The Company believes that the

exclusion of these non-cash charges provides for more accurate

comparisons of its operating results to peer companies due to the

varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions

and the variety of award types. In addition, the Company believes

it is useful to investors to understand the specific impact the

application of SFAS 123R has on its operating results.

Restructuring charges include severance, impairment, lease

termination, exit costs and other charges primarily related to the

closures and consolidations of various manufacturing facilities.

These costs may vary in size based on the Company's restructuring

activities, are not directly related to ongoing or core business

results, and do not reflect expected future operating expenses.

These costs are excluded by the Company's management in assessing

current operating performance and forecasting its earnings trends,

and are therefore excluded by the Company from its non-GAAP

measures.

Intangible amortization consists of non-cash charges that can be

impacted by the timing and magnitude of acquisitions. The Company

considers its operating results without these charges when

evaluating its ongoing performance and forecasting its earnings

trends, and therefore excludes such charges when presenting

non-GAAP financial measures. The Company believes that the

assessment of its operations excluding these costs is relevant to

its assessment of internal operations and comparisons to the

performance of its competitors.

Gains or losses on divestiture of operations relate to discrete and

unusual events associated with the sale of a non-core business of

the Company. These gains or losses can vary significantly in size

and do not reflect expected future operating impacts; therefore, it

is useful to investors to highlight the specific results of these

items on the Company's operating results. The Company's management

excludes these items when evaluating its ongoing performance and

forecasting its earnings trends, and therefore excludes such

charges when presenting non-GAAP net income.

Other charges or gains consist of various other types of items that

are not directly related to ongoing or core business results, such

as executive separation costs, cumulative foreign exchange

adjustments to the cost basis of international entities that have

been divested or liquidated, or reversals of bankruptcy bad debt

provisions. We exclude these items because they do not affect core

operations. Excluding these amounts provide investors with a basis

to compare Company performance against the performance of other

companies without this variability.

Adjustment for taxes relates to the tax effects of the various

adjustments that we incorporate into non-GAAP measures in order to

provide a more meaningful measure on non-GAAP net income.

With the exception of net income and diluted earnings per share, the

Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures as presented in

Schedule II and discussed further below represent results from

continuing operations. Net income and diluted earnings per share

represent results for both continuing and discontinued operations.

(2) During the six-month period ended September 28, 2007, the Company

recognized restructuring charges for employee termination costs in

Europe.

During the three and six-month periods ended September 29, 2006, the

Company recognized restructuring and other charges related to the

impairment, lease termination, and exit costs primarily related to the

disposal and exit of certain real estate owned and leased by the

Company in order to reduce its investment in property, plant and

equipment.

(3) During the six-month period ended September 28, 2007, the Company

recognized net foreign exchange gains in connection with the

divestiture of a certain international entity.

(4) During the three and six-month periods ended September 29, 2006, the

Company recognized a pretax gain in the amount of $181.2 million

associated with the divestiture of the Company's Software Development

and Solutions business in September 2006.

(5) The Company recognized $584,000 and $1.5 million in tax benefits

related to the amortization of intangible assets during the three and

six-month periods ended September 28, 2007, respectively.

The Company recognized $647,000 and $1.5 million (including $544,000

and $1.3 million attributable to discontinued operations) in tax

benefits related to the amortization of intangible assets, and $23.0

million in tax benefits related to restructuring and other activities

during the three and six-month periods ended September 28, 2006,

respectively. These tax benefits were offset by $10.0 million in tax

expense associated with the gain recognized on the divestiture of the

Company's Software Development and Solutions business during the three

and six-month periods ended September 29, 2006.

(6) Return on invested capital ("ROIC") divides after-tax non-GAAP

operating income by an average of net invested capital. After-tax

non-GAAP operating income includes after-tax operating income from

divested businesses, and excludes intangible amortization, stock-based

compensation expense, restructuring and other charges. Net invested

capital is defined as total assets less current liabilities and

non-operating assets. Non-operating assets include cash and cash

equivalents, short-term investments, notes receivable, deferred income

tax assets, and other non-operating assets.

We believe ROIC is a useful measure in providing investors with

information regarding the Company's performance. ROIC is a widely

accepted measure of earnings efficiency in relation to total capital

employed. We believe that increasing the return on total capital

employed, as measured by ROIC, is an effective method to sustain and

increase shareholder value. ROIC is not a measure of financial

performance under generally accepted accounting principles in the

U.S., and may not be defined and calculated by other companies in the

same manner. ROIC should not be considered in isolation or as an

alternative to net earnings as an indicator of performance.

The following table reconciles ROIC as calculated using after-tax non-

GAAP operating income to the same performance measure calculated using

the nearest GAAP measure, which is GAAP operating income from

continuing operations adjusted for taxes:

Three Month Periods Ended

ROIC September 28, 2007 June 29, 2007

Non-GAAP 11.2% 10.4%

Restructuring and other charges -0.7% -1.3%

GAAP 10.5% 9.1%

ased 25% over the year ago quarter to $146 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, compared to $117 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, in the year ago quarter. The Company's adjusted earnings per diluted share of $0.24 in the second quarter ended September 28, 2007 is at the high end of the Company's previously provided guidance of $0.22-$0.24.

Adjusted operating profit increased 20% from the year ago quarter to a record $172 million in the second quarter ended September 28, 2007 while adjusted operating margin increased sequentially 10 basis points to 3.1% from 3.0%. Operating cash flow was $371 million in the second quarter ended September 28, 2007 and $516 million in the six-month period ended September 28, 2007. Free cash flow (net cash flow from operating activities less net purchases of property, plant and equipment) amounted to $297 million in the second quarter ended September 28, 2007 and $370 million in the six-month period ended September 28, 2007.

Mike McNamara, chief executive officer of Flextronics, stated, "We continue to maintain a strong financial position with over $1 billion in cash, no short term debt maturities, and a record low debt to capital leverage ratio of 19%. Inventory turns improved to 8.0x while cash conversion cycle improved by two days sequentially to an industry leading 11 days. We remain intensely focused on generating a higher return on capital while growing our business, as evidenced by our return on invested capital of 11.2%, which increased 80 basis points from the previous quarter." McNamara concluded by stating, "I am very proud of the dedication and hard work of our employees and management across the globe in making this a very successful quarter for Flextronics. We believe we are executing very well on the controllable aspects of the business, which should provide an excellent foundation to add the capabilities of Solectron into the Flextronics framework."

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of U.S. securities laws, including statements related to future growth and return on capital. These forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that could cause the actual results to differ materially from those anticipated by these forward-looking statements. These risks include that growth may not occur as expected; our dependence on industries that continually produce technologically advanced products with short life cycles; our ability to respond to changes in economic trends, to fluctuations in demand for customers' products and to the short-term nature of customers' commitments; competition in our industry, particularly from ODM suppliers in Asia; our dependence on a small number of customers for the majority of our sales; the challenges of effectively managing our operations; the challenges of integrating acquired companies or assets; our reliance on strategic relationships with major customers; the impact on our margins and profitability resulting from substantial investments and start-up and integration costs in our components, design and ODM capabilities; that we may not be able to obtain new customer programs, or that if we do obtain them, that they may not contribute to our revenue or profitability as expected or at all; our ability to design and quickly introduce world-class components products that offer significant price and/or performance advantages over competitive products; production difficulties, especially with new products; our ability to utilize available and recently expanded manufacturing capacity; the risk of future restructuring charges that could be material to our financial condition and results of operations; not realizing expected returns from our retained interests in divested businesses; changes in government regulations and tax laws; our exposure to potential litigation relating to intellectual property rights, product warranty and product liability; potential impairment of our intangible assets; our dependence on the continued trend of outsourcing by OEMs; the effects of customer bankruptcies; and the risks to our particular electronics and technology sector of economic instability and a slowdown in consumer spending. Other risks relate to Flextronics's acquisition of Solectron, which closed on October 1, 2007, including that the revenues, cost savings, growth prospects and any other synergies expected from the acquisition may not be fully realized due to difficulties integrating the businesses, operations and product lines of Flextronics and Solectron or may take longer to realize than expected; and that Flextronics may incur significant costs associated with the acquisition, including charges to operations to reflect costs associated with integrating the businesses and operations of Flextronics and Solectron. Additional information concerning these and other risks is described under "Risk Factors" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" in our reports on Form 10-K, 10-Q and 8-K that we file with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") and under "Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward Looking Information," "Risk Factors" and "The Merger" included in the definitive joint proxy/prospectus, which forms a part of our registration statement on Form S-4/A filed by Flextronics with the SEC on August 7, 2007.
