Please refer to the tables at the end of this release for the
reconciliations to our reported results prepared in accordance with U.S.

Net income of $34.8 million compares to $40.1 million. Adjusted net
income increased 12.6% to $51.9 million compared to $46.2 million.
Adjusted EBITDA of $107.8 million, or 5.0% of sales, compares to $103.1
million, or 5.1% of sales.

Current year net income includes operating expense of $24.2 million
pre-tax and $17.1 million after-tax, comprised primarily of $9.7 million
of amortization of intangible assets and a $9.2 million restructuring
charge. Please refer to the financial tables on page 11 for details.
Prior year net income includes operating expense of $9.0 million pre-tax
and $6.1 million after-tax comprised of amortization of intangible
assets.

"Second quarter sales growth was broad-based, and included a return to
growth in the Network & Security Solutions segment as expected project
activity recovers. We remain focused on key growth initiatives which
include security, wireless and professional audio video, as well as in
global and complex supply chain opportunities," commented Bill Galvin,
President and Chief Executive Officer. "Turning to overall results, we
were pleased to deliver strong growth in diluted earnings per share.
Similar to the first quarter, inflationary pressures, including
increased freight expense, impacted profitability. We have implemented
actions to drive gross margin improvement, including a restructuring
initiative which will result in a more competitive cost structure."

Income Statement Detail

Gross margin of 19.6% was flat sequentially and down 20 basis points
from prior year. The decline in margin was caused by customer and
product mix, and cost inflation, primarily in the UPS segment.

Operating expense of $347.8 million compares to $313.1 million. Adjusted
operating expense of $323.6 million, which excludes the operating
expense items detailed above, compares to $304.1 million. The increase
was driven by increases in freight expense and employee benefits,
primarily higher medical expense. The corresponding adjusted operating
expense ratio of 15.1% of sales compares to 15.2%.

Operating income of $71.3 million compares to $82.6 million. Excluding
operating expense items detailed above, adjusted operating income of
$95.5 million compares to $91.6 million. The corresponding adjusted
operating margin of 4.5% compares to 4.6%.

The year-to-date effective tax rate ("ETR") is 29.4%, which includes a
$1.2 million net tax benefit primarily related to the reversal of
valuation allowances. Excluding the net tax benefit, the projected full
year ETR is 30.7% which compares to the 2017 full year ETR of 54.1%. The
projected full year non-GAAP ETR of 28.8% compares to the 2017 full year
non-GAAP ETR of 37.8%. The favorable rate changes are due primarily to
the impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.

Diluted earnings per share of $1.02 compares to $1.18, and adjusted
diluted earnings per share of $1.53 compares to $1.36, a 12.5% increase
versus prior year.

Segment Update

Network & Security Solutions ("NSS") sales increased 6.5% to
$1,096.3 million. Adjusted for the $11.5 million favorable impact from
the acquisition of the security businesses and the $6.3 million
favorable impact from foreign exchange, NSS sales increased 4.7% on an
organic basis. NSS security sales of $460.9 million, which represents
approximately 42% of segment sales, increased 8.4%. Adjusted for the
$11.5 million and $1.6 million favorable acquisition and currency
impacts, respectively, security sales increased 5.2% on an organic basis.

NSS operating income of $66.1 million compares to $64.9 million. NSS
adjusted operating income of $74.8 million compares to $68.5 million, a
9.1% increase. Adjusted operating income excludes operating expense of
$8.7 million and $3.6 million in the current and prior year quarters,
respectively, as detailed in the financial tables on pages 13 and 14 of
this release.

NSS adjusted EBITDA increased 8.8% to $76.1 million. The corresponding
adjusted EBITDA margin of 6.9% compares to 6.8%.

Electrical & Electronic Solutions ("EES") sales increased
7.9% to $605.6 million. Adjusted for the $6.0 million favorable impact
from foreign exchange and the $11.6 million favorable impact from higher
average copper prices, EES organic sales increased 4.7%.

EES operating income increased 20.3% to $35.6 million. EES adjusted
operating income increased 24.3% to $39.3 million. Adjusted operating
income excludes operating expense of $3.7 million and $2.1 million in
the current and prior year quarters, respectively, as detailed in the
financial tables on pages 13 and 14 of this release.

EES adjusted EBITDA increased 23.4% to $40.4 million. The corresponding
adjusted EBITDA margin of 6.7% compares to 5.8%, driven by expense
leverage.

Utility Power Solutions ("UPS") sales increased 6.2% to $436.0
million. Adjusted for the $1.4 million favorable impact from foreign
exchange and the $0.3 million favorable impact from higher average
copper prices, UPS organic sales increased 5.8%.

UPS operating income of $17.9 million compares to $21.3 million. UPS
adjusted operating income of $22.0 million compares to $24.5 million.
Adjusted operating income excludes operating expense of $4.1 million and
$3.2 million in the current and prior year quarters, respectively, as
detailed in the financial tables on pages 13 and 14 of this release.

UPS adjusted EBITDA of $23.1 million, or 5.3% of sales, compares to
$25.9 million, or 6.3% of sales. The change in margin is due to customer
mix combined with the unfavorable impact of inflation on operating
expense.

Acquisition of Security Businesses

During the second quarter, we completed the acquisition of security
businesses in Australia and New Zealand for $149.9 million, as
previously disclosed.

Cash Flow and Capital Allocation

Year-to-date we have generated $69.3 million of cash flow in operations,
compared to $137.1 million in the prior year-to-date period. The
majority of the change is due to increased working capital investment to
support growth in the business. Excluding the current portion of our
long-term debt, working capital was 17.8% of sales, which compares to
18.5% in the prior year quarter. We invested $24.5 million in capital
expenditures in the first half of 2018, which compares to $20.8 million,
reflecting higher capital investment in facilities and information
technology.

Key capital structure and credit-related statistics for the quarter:

  • Debt-to-total capital ratio of 47.0%, compared to 46.1% at the end of
    2017
  • Debt-to-adjusted EBITDA ratio of 3.3 times, compared to 3.1 times at
    the end of 2017
  • Weighted average cost of borrowed capital of 5.1%, compared to 5.6% at
    the end of 2017
  • $630.6 million available under revolving lines of credit and secured
    accounts receivable and inventory facilities

Outlook

"As we look ahead to the third quarter and full year, we are optimistic
that sales growth will continue, reflecting momentum across the business
and indications that our large project business is in the early stages
of a recovery. Based on current trends, we estimate third quarter 2018
organic sales growth in the 4.0 - 5.0% range. For the full year, we are
increasing the low end of our range by 150 basis points, and now
estimate full year 2018 sales growth of 3.5 - 5.0%. However, this could
be tempered by project timing and uncertainty caused by economic
policies. We continue to estimate cash flow from operations of $180 -
$200 million and now expect capital investment of $50 - $60 million,"
commented Ted Dosch, EVP and Chief Financial Officer. "Our business is
well positioned in the current competitive environment, providing
significant opportunity to leverage our unique set of products and
specialized solutions across our global network. We have strategies in
place to combine revenue growth with enhanced gross margin, while
improving our expense structure, with the goal of generating significant
cash flow and creating value for all of our stakeholders."

Safe Harbor Statement

The statements in this release other than historical facts are
forward-looking statements made in reliance upon the safe harbor of the
Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking
statements are subject to a number of factors that could cause our
actual results to differ materially from what is indicated here. These
factors include but are not limited to general economic conditions, the
level of customer demand particularly for capital projects in the
markets we serve, changes in supplier relationships or in supplier sales
strategies or financial viability, risks associated with the sale of
nonconforming products and services, political, economic or currency
risks related to foreign operations, inventory obsolescence, copper
price fluctuations, customer viability, risks associated with accounts
receivable, the impact of regulation and regulatory, investigative and
legal proceedings and legal compliance risks, information security
risks, risks associated with substantial debt and restrictions contained
in financial and operating covenants in our debt agreements, the impact
and the uncertainty concerning the timing and terms of the withdrawal by
the United Kingdom from the European Union, unanticipated change in our
tax provision and tax liabilities related to the enactment of the Tax
Cuts and Jobs Act and risks associated with integration of acquired
companies, including, but not limited to, the risk that the acquisitions
may not provide us with the synergies or other benefits that were
anticipated. These uncertainties may cause our actual results to be
materially different than those expressed in any forward looking
statements. We do not undertake to update any forward looking
statements. Please see our Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC")
filings for more information.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the results provided in accordance with U.S. Generally
Accepted Accounting Principles ("U.S. GAAP") above, this release
includes certain financial measures computed using non-GAAP components
as defined by the SEC. Specifically, net sales comparisons to the prior
corresponding period, both worldwide and in relevant segments, are
discussed in this release both on an U.S. GAAP and non-GAAP basis. We
believe that by providing non-GAAP organic growth, which adjusts for the
impact of acquisitions (when applicable), foreign exchange fluctuations,
copper prices and the number of billing days, both management and
investors are provided with meaningful supplemental sales information to
understand and analyze our underlying trends and other aspects of our
financial performance. Historically and from time to time, we may also
exclude other items from reported financial results (e.g., impairment
charges, inventory adjustments, restructuring charges, tax items,
currency devaluations, pension settlements, etc.) in presenting adjusted
operating expense, adjusted operating income, adjusted income taxes and
adjusted net income so that both management and financial statement
users can use these non-GAAP financial measures to better understand and
evaluate our performance period over period and to analyze the
underlying trends of our business. We have also excluded amortization of
intangible assets associated with purchase accounting from acquisitions
from the adjusted amounts for comparison of the non-GAAP financial
measures period over period.

EBITDA is defined as net income before interest, income taxes,
depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA
before foreign exchange and other non-operating expense and non-cash
stock-based compensation, excluding the other items from reported
financial results, as defined above. Adjusted EBITDA leverage is defined
as the percentage change in Adjusted EBITDA divided by the percentage
change in net sales. We believe that adjusted operating income, EBITDA,
Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA leverage provide relevant and useful
information, which is widely used by analysts, investors and competitors
in our industry as well as by our management in assessing both
consolidated and business segment performance. Adjusted operating income
provides an understanding of the results from the primary operations of
our business by excluding the effects of certain items that do not
reflect the ordinary earnings of our operations. We use adjusted
operating income to evaluate our period-over-period operating
performance because we believe this provides a more comparable measure
of our continuing business excluding certain items that are not
reflective of expected ongoing operations. This measure may be useful to
an investor in evaluating the underlying performance of our business.
EBITDA provides us with an understanding of earnings before the impact
of investing and financing charges and income taxes. Adjusted EBITDA
further excludes the effects of foreign exchange and other non-cash
stock-based compensation, and certain items that do not reflect the
ordinary earnings of our operations and that are also excluded for
purposes of calculating adjusted net income, adjusted earnings per share
and adjusted operating income. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are used by
our management for various purposes including as measures of performance
of our operating segments and as a basis for strategic planning and
forecasting. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA leverage may be useful
to an investor because this measure is widely used to evaluate a
company's operating performance without regard to items excluded from
the calculation of such measure, which can vary substantially from
company to company depending on the accounting methods, book value of
assets, capital structure and the method by which the assets were
acquired, among other factors. They are not, however, intended as an
alternative measure of operating results or cash flow from operations as
determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Non-GAAP financial measures provide insight into selected financial
information and should be evaluated in the context in which they are
presented. These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as
analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation from, or as
a substitute for, financial information presented in compliance with
U.S. GAAP, and non-GAAP financial measures as reported by us may not be
comparable to similarly titled amounts reported by other companies. The
non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in conjunction with the
Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, including the related
notes, and Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition
and Results of Operations included in this release. Management does not
use these non-GAAP financial measures for any purpose other than the
reasons stated above.
