SYNNEX Corporation Reports Fiscal 2007 Fourth Quarter and Year-End Results

Record Revenue and EPS Results Surpass Expectations

FREMONT, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 10, 2008--SYNNEX Corporation (NYSE: SNX), a leading business process services company, today announced financial results for the fiscal fourth quarter and year ended November 30, 2007.

For the fourth quarter, revenues were $1.97 billion, exceeding the Company's guidance range of $1.875 billion to $1.925 billion and an increase of 13.4% compared to $1.74 billion for the quarter ended November 30, 2006.

Net income for the fourth quarter was $20.2 million, or $0.61 per diluted share, compared with $15.6 million, or $0.48 per diluted share in the prior year quarter, also exceeding the Company's guidance range of $0.52 to $0.54 and representing a 27.1% improvement year-over-year.

For the fiscal year ended November 30, 2007, revenues increased by 10.4% to $7.00 billion, compared to $6.34 billion for the fiscal year ended November 30, 2006.

Net income for the year increased 22.9% to $63.1 million, or a $1.93 per diluted share, compared to $51.4 million, or $1.61 per diluted share for fiscal 2006. Fiscal 2007 net income is inclusive of the Company's third quarter restructuring charge of $2.7 million pre-tax, or $0.05 per diluted share and a favorable tax adjustment of $1.1 million, or $0.03 per diluted share.

"Our success in the fourth quarter was the result of excellent execution in our core business and from our recent strategic acquisitions," stated Robert T. Huang, President and Chief Executive Officer. "I am very pleased with our employees for their continued commitment to service our customers and vendors."

The Company reports that the restructuring and consolidation of its Canadian operations are substantially complete and expects that any residual charges associated with these activities will be diminutive.

    Fourth Quarter Financial Highlights:

    --  Income from operations, was $36.9 million, or 1.87% of
        revenues, versus $28.1 million, or 1.62% of revenues in the
        prior year fourth quarter.

    --  Depreciation and amortization were $2.2 million and $1.9
        million, respectively.

    --  Capital expenditures were $2.7 million.

    --  Borrowings under the Company's Canadian off-balance sheet
        accounts receivable securitization program totaled
        approximately $115.9 million as of November 30, 2007. This
        compares to $343.8 million for the quarter ended November 30,
        2006 when both the U.S. and Canadian securitization programs
        received off-balance sheet accounting treatment. During the
        first quarter of fiscal 2007, the Company amended the terms of
        its U.S. accounts receivable securitization program, which
        resulted in the Company accounting for this U.S. transaction
        as an on-balance sheet borrowing under GAAP, leaving only the
        SYNNEX Canada accounts receivable securitization program as
        off-balance sheet borrowing.

    First Quarter Fiscal 2008 Outlook:

The following statements are based on the Company's current expectations for the first quarter of fiscal 2008. These statements are forward-looking and actual results may differ materially.

    --  Revenues are expected to be in the range of $1.73 billion to
        $1.78 billion.

    --  Net income is expected to be in the range of $16.2 million to
        $16.9 million.

    --  Diluted earnings per share are expected to be in the range of
        $0.49 to $0.51.

The calculation of diluted earnings per share for the first quarter of fiscal 2008 is based on an approximate diluted weighted-average share count of approximately 33.1 million.

"Our first quarter outlook is reflective of our desire to grow profitably. Looking into fiscal 2008, while the current economic environment is not ideal, we anticipate growing our earnings per share in excess of 15% year-over-year through a combination of continued execution, realization of the full impact of our 2007 acquisitions and improvements in efficiency and productivity," Huang continued.
