“I am pleased to report another quarter of strong results," stated Kevin Murai, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Excellent growth and leverage in Technology Solutions and steady progress in the integration of the IBM CRM business led to results ahead of our expectations.”

Fiscal 2014 Second Quarter Highlights:

  • Technology Solutions: Revenue was $3.16 billion, up 24.2% 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 26.1%. Technology Solutions income before non-operating items, income taxes and non-controlling interest was $70.1 million, or 2.22% of segment revenue, compared with $48.7 million, or 1.91% of segment revenue, in the fiscal second quarter of 2013.
  • Concentrix: Revenue was $293.5 million, up from $46.7 million over the prior fiscal year quarter due largely to the recently acquired IBM CRM business. Concentrix’ loss before non-operating items, income taxes and non-controlling interest was $2.2 million, or (0.74%) of Concentrix revenue, compared with income of $3.3 million, or 6.99% of Concentrix revenue, in the prior fiscal year quarter. Non-GAAP Concentrix income before non-operating items, income taxes and non-controlling interest was $27.8 million, or 9.48% of Concentrix revenue, for fiscal second quarter of 2014, compared to $4.3 million, or 9.12% of Concentrix revenue, in the prior year period.
  • The trailing fiscal four quarter ROIC was 8.5% compared to 9.6% in the prior year fiscal second quarter. Excluding the impact of acquisition and integration expenses, the current fiscal quarter’s trailing ROIC was 10.4%.
  • The cash conversion cycle was 46 days compared to 42 days in the prior year fiscal second quarter, due to growth in both business segments.
  • The debt to capitalization ratio was 38%, up from 18% in the prior year fiscal second quarter, primarily due to financing the acquisition of the IBM CRM business.
  • Depreciation and amortization were $9.2 and $15.2 million respectively.

Fiscal 2014 Third Quarter Outlook:

The following statements are based on the Company’s current expectations for the fiscal 2014 third 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 $3.3 billion to $3.4 billion.
  • Non-GAAP net income is expected to be in the range of $56.9 million to $58.9 million.
  • Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share are expected to be in the range of $1.45 to $1.50.
  • After-tax amortization of intangibles is expected to be $11.2 million, or $0.28 per share. These estimates are based on the preliminary purchase price allocation of the IBM CRM acquisition and are subject to change.

“Our third quarter guidance reflects continued strong performance in both our Technology Solutions and Concentrix business segments” stated Kevin Murai, President and CEO of SYNNEX Corporation. “We are positive on the market demand and confident in our ability to execute.”

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.
