Net sales for the fourth quarter ended January 31, 2013, were $7.5 billion, an increase of 5 percent from $7.1 billion in the prior-year fourth quarter. The translation of foreign currencies against the U.S. dollar had a minimal impact on the year-over-year net sales comparison. In the first quarter of fiscal 2013, the company prospectively revised its presentation of sales of vendor warranty services and certain fulfillment contracts such that they are now reflected on an agency basis as net fees as opposed to net sales and cost of products sold. These items would have contributed approximately $240 million of net sales in the fourth quarter, which negatively impacted the year-over-year net sales comparison by approximately 3 percentage points. This change had no impact on gross profit dollars, operating income dollars, net income dollars or earnings per share for any period reported, but positively impacted the gross margin and operating margin percentages in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 by approximately 16 and 4 basis points, respectively. In addition, the SDG acquisition, which closed November 1, 2012, contributed approximately $623 million to fourth quarter fiscal 2013 sales. Also included in prior year net sales is approximately $20 million related to the in-country operations of Brazil and Colombia, which the company exited at the end of fiscal 2012. Excluding the impact of the above factors, net sales were flat year-over-year.

Operating income for the fourth quarter was $93.5 million or 1.25 percent of net sales. This compared to operating income of $83.8 million or 1.18 percent of net sales in the prior-year fourth quarter. Excluding the loss on disposal of subsidiaries, non-GAAP operating income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 was $112.1 million or 1.58% of net sales. The year-over-year decline in operating income is attributable primarily to a lower gross margin resulting from product mix, combined with higher expenses related to SDG.

Fourth-quarter net income attributable to shareholders of Tech Data Corporation was $82.5 million or $2.17 per diluted share compared to $54.1 million or $1.29 per diluted share in the prior-year period. Results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 include a net benefit of approximately $26.0 million, or $0.69 per diluted share for the release of a deferred tax valuation allowance in the European region. Excluding the net benefit, non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 was $56.6 million or $1.48 per diluted share. Results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 included a $28.3 million charge, or $0.46 per diluted share for the loss on disposal of subsidiaries related to the company's decision to exit its operations in Brazil and Colombia. Excluding the loss on disposal of subsidiaries, non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 was $73.3 million, or $1.75 per diluted share.

"Our fourth-quarter and fiscal 2013 results reflect both a dynamic and a challenging year for Tech Data," said Robert M. Dutkowsky, chief executive officer, Tech Data Corporation. "After a strong performance in fiscal 2012, we entered the year against a backdrop of continued economic uncertainty and a cautious IT spending environment. As the year progressed, we faced what is arguably one of the IT industry's most rapid product mix shifts - away from higher-margin products such as servers, to lower-margin products such as tablets, mobile phones and software, as well as a shift in our vendor concentration. Adding to the disruption, the implementation of certain modules of our SAP system in the U.S. caused us to lose some market share. All of this combined resulted in non-GAAP earnings for the quarter and the fiscal year that came in below our expectations and the prior year. However, despite the macro-economic, industry and company-specific headwinds we faced in fiscal 2013, investments we made in strategic acquisitions, vendor relationships, and system enhancements further strengthen and better-position Tech Data for the future."

Fourth-Quarter Financial Highlights

  • Net sales in the Americas (including North America and South America) were $2.6 billion (35 percent of worldwide net sales), a decrease of 6 percent from the prior-year fourth quarter. The change in presentation of vendor warranty services and certain fulfillment contracts reduced the Americas' fourth-quarter fiscal 2013 net sales by approximately $102 million. Included in the Americas' prior year net sales is approximately $20 million related to the in-country operations of Brazil and Colombia, which the company exited at the end of fiscal 2012. Excluding the impact of these factors, as well as the translation effect of certain foreign currencies, the Americas' net sales decreased 2 percent. This decrease was attributable to general market conditions and the loss of some market share in the U.S. following the implementation of certain SAP modules during the second quarter.
  • Net sales in Europe totaled $4.9 billion (65 percent of worldwide net sales), an increase of 12 percent (an increase of 13 percent in euros), from the prior-year fourth quarter. The change in presentation of vendor warranty services and certain fulfillment contracts reduced Europe's fourth-quarter fiscal 2013 net sales by approximately $137 million (approximately 105 million euros). Sales related to the SDG acquisition contributed approximately $623 million (approximately 476 million euros) to fourth quarter fiscal 2013 sales. Excluding the impact of these factors, Europe's net sales increased 2 percent in euros and in U.S. dollars after the translation effect of certain foreign currencies.
  • Gross margin was 5.09 percent compared to 5.27 percent in the prior-year fourth quarter. The change in presentation of vendor warranty services and certain fulfillment contracts increased gross margin by approximately 16 basis points. The decrease in gross margin was primarily attributable to a higher mix of lower-margin mobile phone, tablet and software sales in the quarter, as well as the continuing effects from the company's implementation of certain SAP modules in the U.S. during the second quarter.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A) were $286.4 million or 3.84 percent of net sales compared to $291.1 million, or 4.09 percent of net sales in the prior-year fourth quarter. The change in presentation of vendor warranty services and certain fulfillment contracts increased SG&A as a percentage of sales in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 by approximately 12 basis points. Excluding the $28.3 million charge for the loss on disposal of subsidiaries, non-GAAP SG&A for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 was $262.8 million, or 3.70 percent of net sales. The increase in SG&A was primarily attributable to expenses related to SDG.
  • The Americas region's operating income for the fourth quarter was $38.3 million or 1.48 percent of net sales compared to $26.7 million or 0.97 percent of net sales in the prior-year fourth quarter. Excluding the $28.3 million charge for the loss on disposal of subsidiaries, non-GAAP operating income in the Americas for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 was $55.0 million, or 2.01 percent of net sales. The change in presentation of vendor warranty services and certain fulfillment contracts increased the Americas' operating income as a percent of net sales in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 by approximately 5 basis points. The year-over-year decline is primarily attributable to a higher mix of lower margin products and the continuing effects from the company's implementation of certain SAP modules in the U.S. during the second quarter.
  • The European region's operating income for the fourth quarter was $58.8 million or 1.20 percent of net sales compared to $59.8 million or 1.37 percent of net sales in the prior-year fourth quarter. The change in presentation of vendor warranty services and certain fulfillment contracts increased Europe's operating income as a percent of net sales in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 by approximately 3 basis points. The year-over-year decline is primarily attributable to a higher mix of lower-margin products and higher expenses related to SDG.
  • Stock-based compensation expense is not included in the regional segment reporting results. These expenses are presented as a separate line item in the company's segment reporting (see "Supplementary Information" table attached). Stock-based compensation expense for the fourth quarter was $3.6 million, compared to $2.7 million in the prior-year fourth quarter.

Fiscal-Year Results

Net sales for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2013, were $25.4 billion, a decrease of 4 percent from $26.5 billion for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2012.

The change in presentation of vendor warranty services and certain fulfillment contracts reduced net sales for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2013 by approximately $846 million. This change had no impact on gross profit dollars, operating income dollars, net income dollars or earnings per share for any period reported, but positively impacted the gross margin and operating income margin percentages for the fiscal year by approximately 16 and 4 basis points, respectively. The acquisition of SDG contributed approximately $623 million (approximately 476 million euros) to fiscal year 2013 sales. Also, included in prior fiscal year net sales is approximately $274 million related to the in-country operations of Brazil and Colombia, which the company exited at the end of fiscal 2012.

In addition, the acquisition of SDG contributed approximately $623 million (approximately 476 million euros) to net sales for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2013. Excluding the impact of these factors, Europe's net sales increased 5 percent in euros and in U.S. dollars after the translation effect of certain foreign currencies.
