"We are pleased to report that we saw top line growth in the third quarter in each of our geographic operating segments and in each of our major product categories of hardware, software and services," stated Ken Lamneck, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Strong gross profit growth and cost management discipline in our EMEA business drove a significant improvement in earnings from operations year over year in that segment, which offset the effects of lower gross margins and increased investments in our sales force in North America. In the fourth quarter, we will continue to invest in our sales force to position us well to capitalize on market growth opportunities heading into 2015," added Lamneck.

The Company refers to changes in net sales and gross profit in EMEA and APAC excluding the effects of foreign currency movements. In computing these changes and percentages, the Company compares the current year amount as translated into U.S. dollars under the applicable accounting standards to the prior year amount in local currency translated into U.S. dollars utilizing the weighted average translation rate for the current period.

Net of tax amounts referenced herein were computed using the statutory tax rate for the taxing jurisdictions in the operating segment in which the related expenses were recorded, adjusted for the effects of valuation allowances and net operating losses in certain jurisdictions.

* A tabular reconciliation of financial measures prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") to non-GAAP financial measures is included at the end of this press release.

UPDATED GUIDANCE

The Company currently expects diluted earnings per share to be between $0.54 and $0.60 in the fourth quarter. For the full year 2014 earnings per share is expected to be between $1.99 and $2.05. This outlook includes an effective tax rate of 38% for the fourth quarter. This outlook does not reflect severance and restructuring expenses incurred during the year or the non-cash charge related to the Company's Illinois real estate recorded in the second quarter.

STOCK REPURCHASE PROGRAM

The Company's Board of Directors has approved an additional authorization to repurchase up to $25 million of the Company's common stock. This $25 million is in addition to the $12.6 million remaining under a previous authorization. The Company's share repurchases will be made on the open market, subject to Rule 10b-18 or in privately negotiated transactions, through block trades, through 10b5-1 plans or otherwise, at management's discretion. The amount of shares purchased and the timing of the purchases will be based on market conditions, working capital requirements, general business conditions and other factors. The Company intends to retire the repurchased shares.

CONFERENCE CALL AND WEBCAST

The Company will host a conference call and live web cast today at 5:00 p.m. ET to discuss third quarter 2014 results of operations. A live web cast of the conference call (in listen-only mode) will be available on the Company's web site at http://nsit.client.shareholder.com/events.cfm, and a replay of the web cast will be available on the Company's web site for a limited time following the call.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

The non-GAAP financial measures exclude severance and restructuring expenses in 2014 and 2013, non-cash impairment and accelerated depreciation charges related to our Illinois real estate assets held for sale in the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and the tax effect of these charges. The Company excludes these charges when internally evaluating earnings from operations, tax expense, net earnings and diluted earnings per share for the Company and earnings from operations for each of the Company's operating segments. These non-GAAP measures are used to evaluate financial performance against budgeted amounts, to calculate incentive compensation, to assist in forecasting future performance and to compare the Company's results to those of the Company's competitors. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow for greater transparency, facilitate comparisons to prior periods and the Company's competitors' results and assist in forecasting performance for future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures presented by other companies. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.
