TORONTO, April 18 (Reuters)...Celestica, which said a diversified product mix helped it beat estimates, also gave a strong second-quarter forecast, but withdrew its 2001 estimates amid customer uncertainty.

...The company said that order cancellations plaguing its customers appeared to be stabilizing and its outlook remained cautious for the rest of 2001. Celestica maintained its 2003 target of $20 billion in revenues and operating margins above 5 percent.

That contrasts with rivals' warnings last month, when Solectron Corp. (NYSE:SLR - news) said it would miss its full-year sales target and Jabil Circuit Inc. (NYSE:JBL - news) cut its outlook for the next two quarters...

...The company said it expects revenues of $2.6 billion to $2.8 billion in the second quarter with earnings ranging between 40 cents and 42 cents per share. Analysts polled by First Call expected earnings of 39 cents per share...
