“I am pleased to report solid quarterly earnings even as compared to the prior year's exceptional profits from the hard disk drive shortage. Strong operational execution within the core Distribution Segment aligned well with rapid expansion into adjacent, higher margin service and solution businesses," stated Kevin Murai, President and Chief Executive Officer, “Also our GBS Segment's organic revenue growth continues to accelerate driven by continued investment and increasing momentum in our rapidly growing Concentrix business.”

Fiscal 2012 Fourth Quarter Highlights:

  • Distribution: Revenue was $2.72 billion, down 3% from the prior fiscal year quarter, due in part to a previously reported customer business transition starting within Q4 2011 from gross revenue to net fee for services, resulting in lower reported revenue in Q4 2012. Distribution income before non-operating items, income taxes and noncontrolling interest was $70.4 million, or 2.59% of distribution revenue compared with $81.1 million, or 2.89% in the prior fiscal year quarter. As previously reported, the fiscal 2011 fourth quarter included a very significant gross margin benefit resulting from shortages of hard disk drives.
  • Global Business Services (GBS): Revenue grew to $54.9 million, an increase of 22.2% over the prior fiscal year quarter. GBS income before non-operating items, income taxes and noncontrolling interest was $4.3 million, or 7.89% of GBS revenue compared with $3.6 million, or 8.11% in the prior fiscal year quarter.
  • The trailing four quarters ROIC was 10.5% for the fiscal fourth quarter of 2012, compared to 11.1% in the prior year fiscal fourth quarter.
  • The cash conversion cycle was 40 days compared to 39 days in the prior fiscal year quarter.
  • The debt to capitalization ratio was 17%.
