"In the second quarter, we continued to execute our sales investment plans while delivering on a seasonally important quarter for our business. 2015 is turning out to be a year of diverse product and services opportunity with our largest clients, and we are garnering our share of that growth, albeit at lower margins, while at the same time we are growing our share with U.S. Federal government clients," stated Ken Lamneck, President and Chief Executive Officer.

"We are also excited about our brand refresh announced during the second quarter and the recent launch of our new Insight.com website. We see the marketplace moving from traditional IT products to Intelligent Technology, business solutions that help our clients not only run their business more efficiently, but smarter. I am very proud of our team for coming together to reshape the way we represent Insight to our many stakeholders," added Lamneck.

The Company refers to changes in net sales and gross profit on a consolidated basis and 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 on 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.

GUIDANCE

For the full year of 2015, the Company continues to expect top line growth in the low single digits, in U.S. dollars, and gross margins similar to those reported in the first half of 2015. As a result, the Company now expects diluted earnings per share for the full year 2015 of $2.05 to $2.15.

This outlook reflects:

  • an average U.S. dollar to Euro currency exchange rate of $1.10 and an average U.S. dollar to British Pound currency exchange rate of $1.52;
  • the adverse effect on gross profit of previously announced partner program changes in the software category, which the Company expects to be between $5 and $10 million for the full year 2015;
  • an effective tax rate of 37% to 39%;
  • an average outstanding share count of approximately 38.3 million shares for the year; and
  • capital expenditures of $10 to $15 million.

This outlook excludes severance and restructuring expenses incurred during the year.

CONFERENCE CALL AND WEBCAST

The Company will host a conference call and live web cast today at 5:00 p.m. ET to discuss second quarter 2015 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 2015 and 2014, non-cash impairment and accelerated depreciation charges related to our Illinois real estate assets in the second quarter of 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.
