Item 2.02                   Results of Operations and Financial Condition.


On January 24, 2013, Flextronics International Ltd. (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing its financial results for the third quarter ended December 31, 2012.  A copy of the press release is furnished with this report as Exhibit 99.1.


The information in this Item 2.02 of this Current Report on Form 8-K and Exhibit 99.l attached hereto shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section, nor shall they be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, regardless of any general incorporation language in such filing.


Item 2.05                   Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.


On January 23, 2013, the Audit Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors approved a series of restructuring activities, which are intended to rationalize the Company’s global manufacturing capacity and infrastructure as a result of the current challenging macroeconomic environment. The restructuring activities are intended to improve our operational efficiencies by reducing excess workforce and capacity. In addition to these cost reductions, these activities will result in a further shift of manufacturing capacity to locations with higher efficiencies and lower costs.


The Company expects the total estimated pre-tax costs associated with these activities to be between $100 million and $125 million, comprised primarily of employee related costs of approximately $90 million to $110 million and the remaining costs associated with other exit related costs.  The Company expects the future cash expenditures for these restructuring activities to be between $90 million and $110 million. The Company expects to recognize these charges in its quarter ending March 31, 2013.  The amount and timing of the actual charges may vary due to several factors, including the fact that certain of the restructuring activities are subject to required consultation activities with the Company’s employees and their representatives and compliance with statutory severance requirements in certain jurisdictions.

The Company undertakes no obligation to revise or update any forward-looking statements.
