"I am pleased to report record sales and solid profitability for our fiscal third quarter," stated Kevin Murai, President and Chief Executive Officer, SYNNEX Corporation. Murai continued, "Our Distribution segment posted strong sales growth and operating margin, and our GBS segment continued its trend of double-digit sales growth."

Fiscal 2013 Third Quarter Highlights:

  • Distribution: Revenue was $2.69 billion, an increase of 6.0% over the prior fiscal year quarter. Adjusting for the translation effect of foreign currencies, primarily the yen, our distribution business on a constant dollar basis was up 8.8%. Distribution income before non-operating items, income taxes and noncontrolling interest was $61.8 million, or 2.30% of distribution revenue compared with $52.6 million, or 2.08% in the prior fiscal year quarter.
  • Global Business Services (GBS): Revenue was $55.1 million, an increase of 10.7% over the prior fiscal year quarter. GBS income before non-operating items, income taxes and noncontrolling interest was $1.8 million, or 3.22% of GBS revenue compared with $4.6 million, or 9.21% in the prior fiscal year quarter. GBS results include $2.3 million in pre-tax charges primarily related to costs associated with our recently announced agreement to acquire IBM's CRM business.
  • Trailing fiscal four quarters ROIC was 9.7% for the fiscal third quarter of 2013, compared to 11.1% in the prior fiscal year quarter.
  • The cash conversion cycle was 41 days, unchanged from the prior fiscal year quarter.
  • The debt to capitalization ratio was 15%.
  • Depreciation and amortization were $4.1 million and $2.0 million, respectively.
  • The Company settled its $144 million 4% convertible senior notes for $219 million in cash during the fiscal third quarter of 2013 in accordance with the settlement provisions of the indenture. Due to the Company's decision to settle the convertible senior notes in cash, the difference in the estimated value of the conversion premium from the fiscal second quarter to the date of settlement represented an adjustment to equity and a numerator adjustment for diluted EPS, resulting in a one-time dilutive effect of $1.05 to diluted EPS.

Fiscal 2013 Fourth Quarter Outlook:

The following statements are based on the Company's current expectations for the fiscal 2013 fourth quarter. These statements are forward-looking and actual results may differ materially.

-- Revenue is expected to be in the range of $2.925 billion to $3.025 billion.

-- Net income is expected to be in the range of $43.0 million to $44.4 million.

-- Diluted EPS is expected to be in the range of $1.14 to $1.18.

-- This outlook excludes one-time charges and integration costs.

Recent Acquisition Announcement:

On September 10, 2013 the Company announced an agreement to acquire IBM's $1.2 billion+ customer relationship management business process outsourcing business for $505 million. As we announced previously, this acquisition is expected to initially close in the coming months, at which point additional details will be provided.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement the financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, SYNNEX uses adjusted diluted earnings per share, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, to provide investors with an additional tool to evaluate operating results. Because this non-GAAP measure is not calculated in accordance with GAAP, it may not necessarily be comparable to a similarly titled measure employed by other companies. This non-GAAP financial measure should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the comparable GAAP measure, and should be read only in conjunction with the Company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

SYNNEX management uses the non-GAAP financial measure internally to understand, manage and evaluate the business. SYNNEX management believes it is useful for the Company and investors to review, as applicable, both GAAP information, and the non-GAAP measure, which excludes information because of its one-time nature, in order to assess the performance of the Company's continuing businesses and for planning and forecasting in future periods. This non-GAAP measure is intended to provide investors with an understanding of the Company's operational results and trends that more readily enable investors to analyze SYNNEX' base financial and operating performance and to facilitate period-to-period comparisons and analysis of operational trends. The management of SYNNEX believes the non-GAAP financial measure is useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. A reconciliation of the Company's non-GAAP financial information to GAAP is set forth in the following supplemental information table.
