“I am pleased to report results reflecting strong growth across all business segments, with our IT business delivering revenue growth ahead of our expectations," stated Kevin Murai, President and Chief Executive Officer. “During the quarter, we had a successful initial close of the IBM CRM acquisition with the majority of employees and business successfully brought on board.”

Fiscal 2014 First Quarter Highlights:

  • Technology Solutions (formerly Distribution): Revenue was $2.90 billion, up 20.0% from the prior fiscal year quarter. Adjusting for the translation effect of foreign currencies, primarily the yen and the Canadian dollar, the Technology Solutions business grew approximately 24%. Technology Solutions income before non-operating items, income taxes and non-controlling interest was $63.5 million, or 2.19% of segment revenue, compared with $53.5 million, or 2.21% of segment revenue, in the fiscal first quarter of 2013.
  • Concentrix (formerly GBS): Revenue was $127.0 million, an increase of 186% over the prior fiscal year quarter. Concentrix results include approximately $74.5 million of revenue from the recently acquired IBM customer relationship management (CRM) business. Concentrix loss before non-operating items, income taxes and non-controlling interest was $1.8 million, or 1.40% of Concentrix revenue, compared with income of $2.4 million, or 5.47% of Concentrix revenue, in the prior fiscal year quarter. Non-GAAP Concentrix income before non-operating items, income taxes and non-controlling interest was $11.8 million, or 9.33% of Concentrix revenue, for fiscal first quarter of 2014, compared to $3.4 million, or 7.77% of Concentrix revenue, in the prior year period.
  • “Other income” includes a $2.9 million benefit from a class-action legal settlement.
  • The trailing fiscal four quarter ROIC was 8.8% compared to 10.1% in the prior year first quarter. The current fiscal quarter ROIC includes the impact of acquisition and integration expenses.
  • The cash conversion cycle was 44 days compared to 43 days in the prior year fiscal first quarter.
  • The debt to capitalization ratio was 33%, up from 18% in the prior year fiscal first quarter due to financing the acquisition of the IBM CRM business.
  • Depreciation and amortization were each $5.7 million.

Fiscal 2014 Second Quarter Outlook:

The following statements are based on the Company’s current expectations for the fiscal 2014 second quarter and do not include acquisition and integration expenses and amortization of intangibles. These statements are forward-looking and actual results may differ materially.

  • Revenue is expected to be in the range of $3.1 billion to $3.2 billion.
  • Non-GAAP net income is expected to be in the range of $52.7 million to $54.0 million.
  • Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share are expected to be in the range of $1.34 to $1.38.
  • After-tax amortization of intangibles is expected to be $8.7 million, or $0.22 per share. These estimates are based on the preliminary purchase price allocation of the IBM CRM acquisition and are subject to change.

“We believe the strength we have recently experienced in IT demand will continue in our second quarter,” stated Kevin Murai, President and CEO of SYNNEX Corporation. “We are on track with our integration of the combined Concentrix business and expect to close the IBM customer care acquisition in the remaining countries in the coming months.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement the financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, SYNNEX uses non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, which are non-GAAP financial measures that exclude the amortization of intangible assets and acquisition and integration related expenses. These non-GAAP measures provide investors with an additional tool to evaluate operating results. Because these non-GAAP measures are not calculated in accordance with GAAP, they may not necessarily be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the comparable GAAP measures, 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 measures 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 measures in order to assess the performance of the Company's continuing businesses and for planning and forecasting in future periods. These non-GAAP measures are 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 measures are 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.
