In addition, we generated $276 million in cash from operations and earned a return on invested capital of 14 percent – a 300 basis point improvement over the prior year period. Tech Data’s Q1 results are a testament to the strength of our geographic, vendor, product and customer portfolios and to the flexibility of our business model. Our diverse, end-to-end portfolio of IT Solutions enables us to capture opportunities in the evolving IT marketplace, deliver differentiated value to our customers and vendor partners, and produce strong results for our shareholders.”
