  • Sales for the fiscal year increased 8.0% from the prior year to $27.5 billion; organic sales (as defined later in the document) were up 5.2% year over year and 4.8% in constant currency
  • Adjusted operating income of $931 million and 3.4% of sales, increased 15.3% year over year
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share of $4.24 increased 16.8% year over year; GAAP diluted earnings per share of $3.89 was up 21.2% year over year
  • Cash flow from operations was $237 million and the Company returned $91 million of cash to shareholders through dividends and share repurchases

Rick Hamada, Chief Executive Officer, commented, “In fiscal 2014, our return to year-over-year growth helped drive meaningful improvements in our financial and operational performance. We added over $2 billion to our top line, expanded margins and returns, and grew adjusted diluted earnings per share at twice the rate of revenue. Led by double digit growth in our Electronics Marketing (EM) businesses in Asia and EMEA, enterprise revenue increased 8% and organic revenue was up 5%. The combination of revenue growth, relatively stable gross profit margin and continued expense discipline resulted in adjusted earnings per share growing 16.8% over fiscal 2013 to $4.24. During the year, we also invested in growth initiatives by strengthening our embedded systems capabilities at EM with the acquisition of MSC Technologies and expanding our datacenter solution capabilities by incorporating new technologies, services and partners to our TS offerings. We also modified our capital allocation priorities to incorporate a more consistent element of return to shareholders with the initiation of a dividend. As we enter fiscal 2015, we are poised to build on this performance and drive further improvements in both margins and returns as we continue to execute on our profitable growth initiatives across our portfolio.”

(1)     A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP financial measures is presented in the Non-GAAP Financial Information section of this press release.
 
  • Sales for the fourth quarter increased 6.9% year over year to $7.0 billion; organic sales grew 5.0% year over year and 3.9% in constant currency
  • Adjusted operating income of $244.9 million increased 5.9% year over year primarily due to an improvement in profitability at EM
  • Adjusted net income of $160.1 million increased 12.9% and adjusted diluted earnings per share of $1.14 increased 11.8% year over year

Mr. Hamada added, “We closed out fiscal 2014 with a strong quarter as both revenue and earnings per share were at the high end of expectations and margins and returns improved sequentially. Enterprise revenue grew 6.9% year over year and 5.2% sequentially in constant currency, which is at the high end of normal seasonality, driven by stronger than expected revenue in our TS Americas and EM Asia regions. Adjusted operating income grew 9.4% sequentially and adjusted operating income margin was up 12 basis points with both operating groups contributing to the improvement. Working capital velocity improved sequentially and our cash cycle dropped over two days, which contributed to a 218 basis point increase in our return on working capital to 22%. While our fourth quarter results showed some encouraging signs in certain end markets, looking ahead to fiscal 2015, I would continue to characterize our overall outlook as mixed in nature. Given these expectations, we will keep driving increased leverage and margins where growth is strongest, while always refocusing our valuable resources on higher-growth and return opportunities.”

  • Reported sales increased 8.8% year over year to $4.3 billion while organic sales were up 6.7% in constant currency
  • Sequential organic sales growth of 4.4% in constant currency was above the high end of normal seasonality primarily due to better than expected growth in the Asia region
  • Operating income margin increased 30 basis points year over year to 4.8% primarily due to improvements in the Americas and EMEA regions
  • Working capital velocity improved sequentially and EM’s cash cycle dropped 2.8 days driven by a decline in days of inventory and an increase in days payable
  • Return on working capital (ROWC) increased 108 basis points year over year primarily due to higher operating income

Mr. Hamada further added, “EM closed out the fiscal year with another strong performance as our team delivered a fourth consecutive quarter of year-over-year organic growth and operating margin expansion. For the full year, our Asia team delivered double digit year-over-year organic growth in all four quarters, grew operating income 1.4 times the rate of sales growth and doubled economic profit over fiscal 2013. In our Americas region, which dealt with sluggish growth all year, improved gross profit margin and disciplined expense control combined to drive full year operating income margin up 90 basis points year over year. In our EMEA region, our integration of the MSC Group has proceeded as planned and we are confident that our newly combined strengths in embedded solutions will position us to accelerate growth in this new and incremental market segment. With our book to bill continuing above parity and seasonal growth projected for the September quarter, we expect to continue the steady progress we have made towards EM’s long-range financial goals.”

  • Reported sales increased 4.2% year over year to $2.7 billion and organic sales increased 0.3% in reported dollars and was flat in constant currency
  • Sequential sales growth of 7.0% (6.6% on an organic basis in constant currency) was at the high end of normal seasonality
  • Operating income margin decreased 30 basis points year over year and was up 32 basis points sequentially to 2.7% due primarily to improvements in the Americas and Asia partially offset by a decline in EMEA
  • ROWC increased 461 basis points sequentially due to strong profit growth
  • At a product level, year-over-year growth in software, services and storage was offset by declines in computing components

Mr. Hamada further commented, “In the June quarter, we experienced a somewhat encouraging rebound in our TS Americas region after a weaker than expected close to the March quarter as revenue grew close to 14% sequentially and operating income margin increased over 100 basis points. In TS Asia, which delivered a sixth consecutive quarter of year-over-year margin expansion, revenue grew 4.6% sequentially and operating income margin was up over 80 basis points. The stronger than expected growth in the Americas region was offset by a sequential decline in EMEA, resulting in sequential revenue growth of 6.6% in constant currency at the global level. On a year-over-year basis, organic growth in constant currency was essentially flat as a 4.8% increase in the Americas region was offset by an 11.9% decline in EMEA, with more than half of the EMEA revenue decline attributable to our computing components business. As a result, operating income declined 5.9% from the year ago quarter and operating income margin was down 30 basis points. Although we are encouraged by Americas’ return to revenue growth and Asia’s steady margin progress, we are taking incremental actions to align resources to current market conditions in EMEA. This will include the acceleration of planned efficiencies associated with our recent consolidation onto a single ERP platform at EMEA, to improve margins going forward.”

Cash Flow / Dividend

  • Cash flow from operations was $34 million for the quarter and $237 million on a trailing 12 months basis
  • Cash and cash equivalents at the end of the quarter was $929 million; net debt (total debt less cash and cash equivalents) was approximately $1.1 billion
  • Repurchased $7.4 million of shares during the quarter and have approximately $216 million remaining in the share repurchase program
  • Paid a quarterly dividend of $20.7 million ($0.15 per share) and $82.8 million ($0.60 per share) for the full fiscal year

Kevin Moriarty, Chief Financial Officer, stated, "Cash flow from operations declined in fiscal 2014 as we invested in working capital to support the over $2 billion of top line growth. The team has continued to effectively manage working capital in this uneven recovery as key metrics, including inventory turns and days sales outstanding, remain consistent with fiscal 2013. During the year, we also returned over $90 million of cash to our shareholders through our dividends and share repurchases. Just recently, we entered into a new credit facility that increased our borrowing capacity and extended the maturity. As a result of these actions, we enter fiscal 2015 in a strong financial position with over $900 million of cash on hand and over $1.4 billion of available borrowing capacity to fund profitable growth going forward.”

Outlook for First Quarter of Fiscal 2015 Ending on September 27, 2014

  • EM sales are expected to be in the range of $4.1 billion to $4.4 billion and TS sales are expected to be between $2.3 billion to $2.6 billion
  • Avnet sales are forecasted to be between $6.4 billion and $7.0 billion
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share is expected to be in the range of $0.93 to $1.03 per share
  • The EPS guidance assumes 141 million average diluted shares outstanding and a tax rate of 26% to 30%

The above EPS guidance excludes the amortization of intangibles and any potential restructuring and integration charges. In addition, the above guidance assumes that the average U.S. Dollar to Euro currency exchange rate for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 is $1.35 to €1.00. This compares with an average exchange rate of $1.32 to €1.00 in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 and $1.37 to €1.00 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014.

Forward-Looking Statements

This document contains certain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. These statements are based on management’s current expectations and are subject to uncertainty and changes in facts and circumstances. The forward-looking statements herein include statements addressing future financial and operating results of Avnet and may include words such as “will,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “forecast,” “expect,” "feel," “believe,” and “should,” and other words and terms of similar meaning in connection with any discussions of future operating or financial performance, business prospects or market conditions. Actual results may vary materially from the expectations contained in the forward-looking statements.

The following factors, among others, could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements: the Company’s ability to retain and grow market share and to generate additional cash flow, risks associated with any acquisition activities and the successful integration of acquired companies, declines in sales, changes in business conditions and the economy in general, changes in market demand and pricing pressures, any material changes in the allocation of product or product rebates by suppliers, and other competitive and/or regulatory factors affecting the businesses of Avnet generally.

More detailed information about these and other factors is set forth in Avnet’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the Company’s reports on Form 10-K, Form 10-Q and Form 8-K. Except as required by law, Avnet is under no obligation to update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to disclosing financial results that are determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), the Company also discloses in this document certain non-GAAP financial information including adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share, as well as sales adjusted for the impact of acquisitions and other items (as defined in the Organic Sales section of this document). Management believes organic sales is a useful measure for evaluating current period performance as compared with prior periods and for understanding underlying trends.

Management believes that operating income adjusted for (i) restructuring, integration and other expenses, and (ii) amortization of acquired intangible assets and other, is a useful measure to help investors better assess and understand the Company’s operating performance, especially when comparing results with previous periods or forecasting performance for future periods, primarily because management views the excluded items to be outside of Avnet’s normal operating results or non-cash in nature. Management analyzes operating income without the impact of these items as an indicator of ongoing margin performance and underlying trends in the business. Management also uses these non-GAAP measures to establish operational goals and, in some cases, for measuring performance for compensation purposes.

Management believes net income and diluted earnings per share adjusted for (i) the impact of the items described above, (ii) certain discrete items impacting income tax expense and (iii) the gain on legal settlement, bargain purchase and other is useful to investors because it provides a measure of the Company’s net profitability on a more comparable basis to historical periods and provides a more meaningful basis for forecasting future performance. Additionally, because of management’s focus on generating shareholder value, of which net profitability is a primary driver, management believes net income and diluted earnings per share excluding the impact of these items provides an important measure of the Company’s net results of operations for the investing public.

Other metrics management monitors in its assessment of business performance include return on working capital (ROWC), return on capital employed (ROCE) and working capital velocity (WC velocity).

  • ROWC is defined as annualized adjusted operating income (as defined above) divided by the sum of the monthly average balances of receivables and inventories less accounts payable.
  • ROCE is defined as annualized, tax effected adjusted operating income (as defined above) divided by the monthly average balances of interest-bearing debt and equity (including the impact of adjustments to operating income discussed above) less cash and cash equivalents.
  • WC velocity is defined as annualized sales divided by the sum of the monthly average balances of receivable and inventories less accounts payable.

Any analysis of results and outlook on a non-GAAP basis should be used as a complement to, and in conjunction with, results presented in accordance with GAAP.

Organic Sales

Organic sales is defined as reported sales adjusted for (i) the impact of acquisitions and divestitures by adjusting Avnet’s prior periods to include the sales of acquired businesses and exclude the sales of divested businesses as if the acquisitions and divestitures had occurred at the beginning of the earliest period presented and (ii) the impact of the transfer of a portion of certain operations between the EM and TS operating groups, which did not have an impact to Avnet on a consolidated basis but did impact the organic sales for the EM and TS operating groups. Sales taking into account the combination of these adjustments are referred to as “organic sales.”
