Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

Sanmina–SCI Magyarorszag Elekronikai Gyarto Kft and Sanmina-SCI Systems de Mexico, S.A. de C.V. (each, a “Subsidiary”), each a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sanmina-SCI Corporation (the “Company”), entered into a Revolving Trade Receivables Purchase Agreement, dated as of September 21, 2007, among the Subsidiaries, as originators, the Company, Sanmina-SCI UK Ltd., and Sanmina-SCI Israel Medical Ltd., as servicers, the banks and financial institutions from time to time party thereto, as purchasers (the “Purchasers”), and Deutsche Bank AG New York, as administrative agent (the “Receivables Agreement”).  The closing of the Receivables Agreement occurred on September 21, 2007.  The Receivables Agreement has a term of six months from the date of the Receivables Agreement and permits the Subsidiaries to sell specified accounts receivable to the Purchasers from time to time.  The Subsidiaries may sell to the Purchasers up to $385.0 million of face/invoice amount of receivables at any time outstanding.  The Receivables Agreement allows for the designation of additional originators and the increase of the aggregate investment limits of the Purchasers to up to $400.0 million, in each case subject to the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in the Receivables Agreement including the agreement of the Purchasers to increase their respective investment limits.

The covenants under the Company’s Amended and Restated Credit and Guaranty Agreement, dated as of December 16, 2005, as amended, limit the amount of foreign accounts receivable that may be sold under factoring or similar arrangements, including the Receivables Agreement, to $400.0 million in aggregate face amount sold and outstanding at any time.  The obligations of the Subsidiaries under the Receivables Agreement are guaranteed by the Company.  Each Subsidiary has provided a lien in favor of the collateral agent for the Purchasers in the accounts in which the proceeds of the sold receivables are remitted.

The purchase price for a receivable under a Receivables Agreement is an amount equal to 95% to 100% of its invoice/face amount.  The Subsidiaries pay the Purchasers interest during the period from the date the receivable is sold to its maturity date at a rate equal to LIBOR plus 0.30%.  The Receivables Agreement provides for a commitment fee based on the unused portion of the facility.

Upon the occurrence of a termination event, the Purchasers have the option to terminate their investment limits under the Receivables Agreement.  This termination is automatic in the case of certain bankruptcy events.  The termination events under the Receivables Agreement include defaults with respect to certain indebtedness, certain bankruptcy events, material judgments, the occurrence of a change in control (as defined in the Receivables Agreement), the failure by the Subsidiaries or the Servicers to observe or perform covenants contained in the Receivables Agreement or the other transaction documents, upon the expiration of a grace period in certain instances, and representations and warranties being inaccurate in any material respect when made or deemed made.
