Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement the financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, SYNNEX uses non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA"), non-GAAP net income attributable to SYNNEX Corporation and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, which are non-GAAP financial measures that exclude the amortization of intangible assets and acquisition and integration expenses related to the IBM CRM acquisition and the related tax effects thereon. These non-GAAP measures provide investors with an additional tool to evaluate operating results. Because these non-GAAP measures are not calculated in accordance with GAAP, they may not necessarily be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the comparable GAAP measures, and should be read only in conjunction with the Company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

SYNNEX refers to growth rates at constant currency or adjusting for the translation effect of foreign currencies so that certain financial results can be viewed without the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, thereby facilitating period-to-period comparisons of the Company's business performance. Financial results adjusted for currency are calculated by translating current period activity in local currency using the comparable prior year periods' currency conversion rate. This approach is used for countries where the functional currency is the local currency. Generally, when the dollar either strengthens or weakens against other currencies, the growth at constant currency rates or adjusting for currency will be higher or lower than growth reported at actual exchange rates.

Trailing fiscal four quarters ROIC is defined as the last four quarters' tax effected operating income divided by the average of the last five quarterly balances of debt and equity, net of cash and cash equivalents in the United States.  ROIC excluding the impact of IBM CRM acquisition and integration expenses and amortization of intangibles is calculated by excluding the tax effected impact of these items from operating income and equity.

SYNNEX management uses non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate the business. SYNNEX management believes it is useful for the company and investors to review, as applicable, both GAAP information and non-GAAP financial measures in order to assess the performance of SYNNEX' continuing businesses and for planning and forecasting in future periods. These non-GAAP measures are intended to provide investors with an understanding of SYNNEX' operational results and trends that more readily enable investors to analyze SYNNEX' base financial and operating performance and to facilitate period-to-period comparisons and analysis of operational trends. The management of SYNNEX believes the non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. A reconciliation of SYNNEX' non-GAAP financial information to GAAP is set forth in the supplemental information table at the end of this press release.
