SYNNEX Corporation Reports Fiscal 2009 Third Quarter Results

The Company Surpasses Wall Street Estimates on Revenue, Net Income and EPS

FREMONT, Calif., Sep 21, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- SYNNEX Corporation (NYSE: SNX), a leading business process services company, today announced financial results for the fiscal third quarter ended August 31, 2009.

For the fiscal third quarter, revenues were $2.01 billion, a decrease of 1.88% compared to $2.05 billion for the prior year fiscal third quarter and an increase of 10.8%, compared to $1.81 billion for the fiscal second quarter of 2009.

Income from operations was $39.3 million, or 1.96% of revenues, compared to income from operations of $39.5 million, or 1.93% of revenues in the prior year fiscal third quarter and income from operations of $31.7 million, or 1.75% of revenues from the fiscal second quarter of 2009.

Net income for the fiscal third quarter was $23.1 million, or $0.67 per diluted share, exceeding Wall Street estimates which averaged $0.61. This compares with $22.1 million, or $0.66 per diluted share in the prior year fiscal third quarter and $19.2 million, or $0.57 on a sequential basis.

"Our results for the fiscal third quarter are industry leading. Once again the SYNNEX team produced profitable market share gains as is evidenced by our 10.8% sequential revenue improvement, while also improving net income and EPS results," stated Kevin Murai, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our continued focus and discipline on improving our return on invested capital has once again resulted in another consecutive quarter of year-over-year ROIC improvements."
