“Our fourth-quarter results marked a strong finish to an excellent fiscal year for Tech Data. Building upon the positive momentum of the first nine months, our teams in both regions executed well in Q4, delivering higher-than-expected sales and record fourth-quarter non-GAAP earnings per share,” said Robert M. Dutkowsky, chief executive officer. “At the beginning of the fiscal year, we set out to optimize our operations and leverage our infrastructure by aligning our resources with more strategic, higher-growth areas. This focus enabled us to achieve all of our aspirational financial objectives in fiscal 2016. We gained share in selected markets, improved non-GAAP operating and net income, and grew non-GAAP earnings per share by 16 percent to the highest level in our company’s history, despite experiencing significant foreign currency headwinds throughout the year.”

“Additionally, we delivered a return on invested capital of 13 percent in fiscal 2016—a year-over-year improvement of 200 basis points,” continued Dutkowsky. “We also generated $189 million of operating cash flow and returned $147 million to shareholders through share repurchases, bringing our cumulative share repurchases to $1.3 billion, or nearly 46% of total shares issued. Tech Data’s strong fiscal 2016 performance validates our strategy and firmly positions us to leverage new opportunities in the evolving IT marketplace on behalf of our customers, vendor partners, shareholders, and employees.”

Business Outlook

  • For the quarter ending April 30, 2016, the Company anticipates worldwide net sales to be in the range of $5.85 billion to $6.05 billion. This guidance assumes year-over-year constant currency net sales growth of low-to-mid-single digits in both regions, and an average U.S. dollar to euro exchange rate of $1.08 to €1.00.
  • For the quarter ending April 30, 2016, the Company anticipates non-GAAP earnings per diluted share to be in the range of $0.90 to $0.98.
  • This guidance assumes weighted average diluted shares outstanding of 35.4 million and a non-GAAP effective tax rate to be in the range of 30 percent to 32 percent.
