Financial Highlights for the Second Quarter Ended July 31, 2015:

  • Net Sales for the second quarter were $6.6 billion, a decrease of approximately 4 percent from $6.8 billion in the prior-year quarter. Excluding the impact of weaker foreign currencies against the U.S. dollar compared to the prior-year quarter, consolidated net sales increased 8 percent.
    • The Americas: Net sales were $2.7 billion (approximately 42 percent of worldwide net sales), an increase of 1 percent from the prior-year quarter. Excluding from both periods net sales generated in Chile, Peru and Uruguay due to the Company's previously announced exit from those countries, and the impact of weaker foreign currencies against the U.S. dollar, sales increased approximately 5 percent from the prior-year quarter.
    • Europe: Net sales were $3.8 billion (approximately 58 percent of worldwide net sales), a decrease of 7 percent (an increase of 11 percent on a constant currency basis), from the prior-year quarter.
  • Gross profit was $325.3 million, or 4.94 percent of net sales, compared to $351.4 million, or 5.14 percent of net sales in the prior-year quarter. The year-over-year decline in gross profit dollars is due primarily to weaker foreign currencies against the U.S. dollar, offset in part by additional sales volumes. The year-over-year decline in gross margin percentage is due primarily to product mix.
  • Non-GAAP SG&A was $244.1 million, or 3.71 percent of net sales, compared to $277.1 million, or 4.05 percent of net sales in the prior-year quarter. The decrease in SG&A is due primarily to the impact of weaker foreign currencies against the U.S. dollar. The decrease in SG&A as a percentage of net sales is primarily attributable to improved operating leverage from increased sales and good expense management.
  • Non-GAAP operating income was $81.2 million, or 1.23 percent of net sales, compared to $74.3 million, or 1.09 percent of net sales in the prior-year quarter. The weakening of foreign currencies against the U.S. dollar compared to the prior-year quarter negatively impacted non-GAAP operating income by approximately $10 million.
    • The Americas: Non-GAAP operating income was $40.0 million, or 1.46 percent of net sales, compared to $39.2 million, or 1.44 percent of net sales in the prior-year quarter.
    • Europe: Non-GAAP operating income was $45.2 million, or 1.18 percent of net sales, compared to $38.9 million, or 0.95 percent of net sales in the prior-year quarter. On a constant currency basis, non-GAAP operating income improved 41 percent compared to the prior-year quarter.
    • Stock-based compensation expense was $4.0 million, compared to $3.9 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).
  • Non-GAAP net income was $52.5 million, or $1.43 per diluted share, compared to $42.9 million or $1.12 per diluted share in the prior-year quarter. The weakening of certain foreign currencies against the U.S. dollar compared to the prior-year quarter negatively impacted non-GAAP net income by approximately $7 million, or $0.19 per diluted share.
  • Net cash provided by operations during the second quarter was $200 million.
  • Return on invested capital on a non-GAAP basis for the trailing twelve months was 12 percent.

"Tech Data delivered excellent results for the second quarter of fiscal 2016," said Robert M. Dutkowsky, chief executive officer. "Throughout the quarter, we focused on optimizing our operations and capturing the opportunities in a dynamic IT market. This focus, as well as great execution by our teams in both regions, produced solid year-over-year sales growth in local currencies. Higher sales drove excellent operating leverage, resulting in record Q2 non-GAAP net income and record non-GAAP earnings per share. In the first half of fiscal 2016, we grew non-GAAP earnings per share by 21 percent, despite facing significant foreign currency headwinds. We generated more than $300 million in cash flow from operations, earned a return on invested capital well above our weighted average cost of capital, and returned significant value to our shareholders through our share repurchase program. This strong and balanced performance highlights our team's ability to respond to market demand, the resiliency of our business model, and the effectiveness of our state-of-the-art global IT platform, all of which enable Tech Data to produce outstanding results for our customers, vendor partners and shareholders."

Business Outlook

For the third quarter ending October 31, 2015, the Company expects year-over-year local currency sales growth of mid-single digits in the Americas, and mid- to high-single digits in Europe. This outlook excludes approximately $77 million of sales from the previous year's third quarter, due to the Company's exit from Chile, Peru and Uruguay. The Company also expects a non-GAAP effective tax rate of 29 to 31 percent.
