  • During the three months ended September 30, 2015, the Company repurchased approximately 194,000 shares of its common stock, which represented the remaining $5.9 million authorized under previously approved repurchase programs.

“In the third quarter, our team delivered double digit sales and gross profit growth in constant currency and controlled discretionary expenses, which resulted in strong earnings growth year over year,” stated Ken Lamneck, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are pleased with our sales and operational execution in the first nine months of 2015. Despite currency headwinds, we have delivered solid financial results this year while growing our sales force globally, and most recently we enhanced our services expertise with the acquisition of BlueMetal on October 1st. We believe our actions so far this year will serve us well as we close out 2015 and head into 2016,” added Lamneck.

The Company refers to changes in net sales, gross profit and earnings from operations 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 2015, the Company continues to expect top line growth in the low single digits in U.S. dollar terms. In the fourth quarter, the Company expects diluted earnings per share to be between $0.56 and $0.61 and, for the full year, diluted earnings per share is expected to be between $2.10 and $2.15.

This outlook reflects:

  • the adverse effect on gross profit of previously announced partner program changes in the software category, which the Company expects to be approximately $8 million for the full year 2015;
  • an effective tax rate of 38% for the fourth quarter; and
  • average common shares outstanding of approximately 38.3 million for the full year 2015.

This outlook excludes severance and restructuring expenses incurred during the year and the non-cash real estate impairment charge recorded in the third quarter.

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 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, non-cash real estate impairment and accelerated depreciation charges 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.
