Insight Enterprises, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2016 Results

TEMPE, Ariz., Oct. 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Insight Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ:NSIT) (the “Company”) today reported results of operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2016.

In the third quarter of 2016, consolidated net sales were $1.39 billion, up 4% year over year. This improvement was driven by an increase in net sales reported in all three of the Company’s operating segments, including the generation of more than $1 billion of net sales by the Company’s North America operating segment during the third quarter.

Consolidated earnings from operations in the third quarter of 2016 increased 12% year over year to $36.4 million and diluted earnings per share increased to $0.60 compared to $0.56 for the third quarter of 2015. Adjusted diluted earnings per share was $0.62 in the third quarter of 2016 compared to $0.59 reported in the third quarter of last year.*

"I am pleased to report another strong quarterly performance in our business. Each of our operating segments delivered solid top-line growth, and we continued to manage expenses, which drove strong earnings growth year over year,” stated Ken Lamneck, President and Chief Executive Officer. “The market is stable, and our business is healthy. We believe we are well positioned heading into the fourth quarter to meet our financial and operational objectives for the full year,” added Lamneck.

* In this press release, the Company refers to financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) in discussing financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015. When referring to non-GAAP measures, the Company refers to such measures as “Adjusted.” Adjusted measures exclude severance and restructuring expenses recorded in all periods and the gain recorded in the second quarter of 2016 on an asset held for sale, as well as the tax effect of these items. A tabular reconciliation of financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures is included at the end of this press release.

The Company refers to changes in net sales, gross profit and earnings from operations on a consolidated basis and in North America, EMEA and APAC excluding the effects of fluctuating foreign currency exchange rates. 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.

The tax effect of Adjusted 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.

GUIDANCE

Given the Company’s year to date 2016 financial performance, the Company is maintaining its outlook that it expects net sales in 2016 to grow in the low single digit range year over year, and the Company is increasing its GAAP diluted earnings per share outlook for the full year 2016 to a range of $2.40 to $2.45. Excluding the gain recorded on an asset held for sale and severance and restructuring expenses recorded during the nine months ended September 30, 2016, Adjusted diluted earnings per share for the full year 2016 is expected to be between $2.45 to $2.50.*

This outlook reflects an effective tax rate in the fourth quarter of approximately 37% - 38%. This outlook excludes severance and restructuring expenses and the gain on building sale recorded during the year.

The per share effects of the items excluded from Adjusted diluted earnings per share are included in the tabular reconciliation of financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures at the end of this press release.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

The non-GAAP financial measures (referred to as Adjusted consolidated earnings from operations, Adjusted consolidated net earnings and Adjusted diluted earnings per share) exclude severance and restructuring expenses and a gain on the sale of real estate for which a non-cash impairment charge was previously reported, as well as the tax effect of these items. The Company excludes these items 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.
