|Operating income ($M)||$55.9||$64.0||-12.6%|
|Net income attributable to SYNNEX Corporation ($M)||$33.4||$38.2||-12.7%|
“I am pleased to report solid quarterly results even as compared to the prior year’s exceptional profits which benefitted from the hard drive shortage and considering the recent weakening of key foreign currencies such as the yen. Steady operational execution within the core Distribution Segment aligned well with our mix shift into higher margin product and service offerings, including in our Technology Solutions Division," stated Kevin Murai, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our GBS Segment’s strong revenue growth continues, driven by strategic investment and increasing momentum in our rapidly growing Concentrix business.”
Fiscal 2013 First Quarter Highlights:
- Distribution: Revenue was $2.42 billion, essentially flat from the prior fiscal year quarter. Distribution income before non-operating items, income taxes and noncontrolling interest was $52.1 million, or 2.15% of distribution revenue compared with $62.4 million, or 2.57% in the prior fiscal year quarter.
- Global Business Services (GBS): Revenue was $52.5 million, an increase of 16.5% over the prior fiscal year first quarter. GBS income before non-operating items, income taxes and non-controlling interest was $3.9 million, or 7.43% of GBS revenue compared with $2.0 million, or 4.42% in the prior fiscal year quarter.
- Trailing fiscal four quarters ROIC was 10.1% for the fiscal first quarter of 2013, compared to 11.4% in the prior year fiscal first quarter.
- The cash conversion cycle was 43 days, down two days from the prior fiscal year quarter.
- The debt to capitalization ratio was 18%.
- Depreciation and amortization were $4.3 million and $2.0 million, respectively.
Fiscal 2013 Second Quarter Outlook:
The following statements are based on the Company’s current expectations for the fiscal 2013 second quarter. These statements are forward-looking and actual results may differ materially.
“We anticipate that IT demand will remain mixed for products we sell and geographies we operate in. In addition, ongoing competitive pricing and a more limited ability to earn incremental incentives will impact our gross margin this quarter.” Mr. Murai continued, “Despite the near-term challenges, however, we remain focused on growing our business and expect our margins to improve in the second half of the year.”
- Revenue is expected to be in the range of $2.425 billion to $2.525 billion.
- Net income is expected to be in the range of $29.8 million to $31.0 million.

The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle.
