Financial Highlights for the First Quarter Ended April 30, 2014:

  • Net Sales for the first quarter were $6.7 billion, an increase of 9 percent from $6.1 billion in the prior-year quarter. Excluding the positive impact of the strengthening of certain foreign currencies against the U.S. dollar, consolidated net sales increased approximately 6 percent from the prior-year quarter.
    • The Americas: Net sales were $2.5 billion (approximately 37 percent of worldwide net sales), an increase of 8 percent from the prior-year quarter.
    • Europe: Net sales were $4.3 billion (approximately 63 percent of worldwide net sales), an increase of 10 percent (an increase of 5 percent in euros), from the prior-year quarter.
  • Gross profit was $335.3 million, or 4.98 percent of net sales, compared to $322.4 million, or 5.24 percent of net sales in the prior-year quarter.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A") were $291.6 million, or 4.33 percent of net sales, compared to $283.4 million, or 4.61 percent of net sales in the prior-year quarter. Non-GAAP SG&A was $284.2 million, or 4.22 percent of net sales, compared to $276.1 million, or 4.49 percent of net sales in the prior-year quarter. The increase in SG&A is due to the impact of the strengthening of certain foreign currencies against the U.S. dollar. The decrease in SG&A as a percentage of net sales is primarily attributable to increased operating leverage resulting from higher sales in both regions.
  • Worldwide operating income was $31.5 million, or 0.47 percent of net sales compared to $36.0 million or 0.59 percent of net sales in the prior-year quarter. Non-GAAP operating income was $51.2 million, or 0.76 percent of net sales, compared to $46.3 million, or 0.75 percent of net sales in the prior-year quarter.
    • The Americas: Operating income was $26.3 million, or 1.06 percent of net sales, compared to $27.2 million, or 1.19 percent of net sales in the prior-year quarter. Non-GAAP operating income was $29.3 million, or 1.18 percent of net sales, compared to $29.0 million, or 1.26 percent of net sales in the prior-year quarter.
    • Europe: Operating income was $7.2 million, or 0.17 percent of net sales, compared to $11.9 million, or 0.31 percent of net sales in the prior-year quarter. Non-GAAP operating income was $23.8 million, or 0.56 percent of net sales, compared to $20.4 million, or 0.53 percent of net sales in the prior-year quarter.
    • Stock-based compensation expense was $2.0 million, compared to $3.1 million in the prior-year quarter. These expenses are presented as a separate line item in the company's segment reporting (see the GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation in the financial tables of this press release).
  • Net income was $13.5 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, compared to $17.8 million, or $0.47 per diluted share in the prior-year quarter. Non-GAAP net income was $27.7 million, or $0.72 per diluted share, compared to $25.1 million or $0.66 per diluted share in the prior-year quarter.
  • Net cash provided by operations during the first quarter was $95 million.
  • Return on invested capital on a non-GAAP basis for the trailing twelve months was 10 percent.

"We are pleased to report a good start to fiscal year 2015," said Robert M. Dutkowsky, chief executive officer. "Our focus on execution, supported by an improved IT demand environment resulted in record first-quarter sales, nearly double-digit year-over-year growth in non-GAAP earnings and strong operating cash flow. Growth in first-quarter non-GAAP earnings exceeded our expectations, demonstrating our ability to achieve solid operating performance when we focus on and respond to the realities of the market. We believe our focus on the marketplace and operations will enable us to build upon this momentum during fiscal 2015 and beyond."

Business Outlook

For the second quarter ending July 31, 2014, the Company expects year-over-year sales growth of low-to-mid single digits in the Americas and Europe, in euros. The Company also expects the gross margin percentage to be in line with recent levels, a non-GAAP effective tax rate of 35 to 37 percent and the average U.S. dollar to euro currency exchange rate to be $1.36 to €1.00.
