Analysts on average had expected earnings of 21 cents a share, before items, on revenue of $1.57 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

Restructuring and other charges rose to $23.8 million from $20.7 million a year ago.

Celestica, one of the five largest contract electronics manufacturers in the world, forecast third-quarter adjusted profit of 20 cents to 24 cents a share. It sees revenue of $1.55 billion to $1.65 billion.
