NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
For the three and six months ended May 31, 2013 and 2012

(unaudited)
 
NOTE 1—ORGANIZATION AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION:  
SYNNEX Corporation (together with its subsidiaries, herein referred to as “SYNNEX” or the “Company”) is a business process services company offering a comprehensive range of services to resellers, retailers, and original equipment manufacturers (“OEMs”) worldwide. SYNNEX’s business process services include wholesale distribution and business process outsourcing (“BPO”) services.

(currency and share amounts in thousands, except per share amounts)
(unaudited)

Concentration of credit risk  
Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to significant concentration of credit risk consist principally of accounts receivable, and cash and cash equivalents. The Company’s cash and cash equivalents are maintained with high quality institutions, the compositions and maturities of which are regularly monitored by management. Through May 31, 2013 , the Company had not experienced any losses on such deposits.  
Accounts receivable include amounts due from customers and vendors primarily in the technology industry. The Company performs ongoing credit evaluations of its customers’ financial condition and limits the amount of credit extended when deemed necessary, but generally requires no collateral. The Company also maintains allowances for potential credit losses. In estimating the required allowances, the Company takes into consideration the overall quality and aging of the receivable portfolio, the existence of a limited amount of credit insurance and specifically identified customer and vendor risks. Through May 31, 2013 , such losses have been within management’s expectations.  
In both the three and six months ended May 31, 2013 , one customer accounted for 10% of the Company's total revenue. In the three and six months ended May 31, 2012 , no customer accounted for 10% or more of the Company's total revenue. Products purchased from the Company’s largest OEM supplier, Hewlett-Packard Company (“HP”), accounted for approximately 32% for both the three and six months ended May 31, 2013 and 36% of the total revenue for both the three and six months ended May 31, 2012 , respectively.
As of May 31, 2013 , no customer exceeded 10% of the total consolidated accounts receivable balance. As of November 30, 2012, one customer accounted for 10% of the consolidated accounts receivable balance.
Revenue recognition
The Company generally recognizes revenue on the sale of hardware and software products when they are shipped and on services when they are performed, if a purchase order exists, the sales price is fixed or determinable, collection of resulting accounts receivable is reasonably assured, risk of loss and title have transferred and product returns are reasonably estimable. Provisions for sales returns are estimated based on historical data and are recorded concurrently with the recognition of revenue. These provisions are reviewed and adjusted periodically by the Company. Revenue is reduced for early payment discounts and volume incentive rebates offered to customers. The Company recognizes revenue on certain service contracts, post-contract software support services, and extended warranty contracts, where it is not the primary obligor, on a net basis.
The Company provides services such as call center, renewals, maintenance and contract management services to its customers under contracts that typically consist of a master services agreement or statement of work, which contains the terms and conditions of each program and service offering. Typically the contracts are time-based or transactions or volume based. Revenue is generally recognized over the term of the contract or when service has been rendered, the sales price is fixed or determinable and collection of the resulting accounts receivable is reasonably assured.
The Company's operation in Mexico primarily focuses on projects with the Mexican government and other local agencies that are long-term in nature. Under the agreements, the Company sells computers and equipment to contractors that provide services to the Mexican government. The Company also sells computer equipment and services directly to the Mexican government. The payments are due on a monthly basis and contingent upon the satisfactory performance of certain services, fulfillment of certain obligations and meeting certain conditions. The Company recognizes revenue and cost of revenue on a straight-line basis over the term of the contract, as the contingencies are satisfied and payments become due.
Earnings per common share  
Earnings per common share-basic is computed by dividing the net income attributable to SYNNEX Corporation for the period by the basic weighted-average number of outstanding common shares.  
Earnings per common share-diluted is computed by adding the dilutive effect of in-the-money employee stock options, restricted stock awards, restricted stock units and similar equity instruments granted by the Company to the basic weighted-average number of outstanding common shares. The Company uses the treasury stock method, under which, the amount the employee must pay for exercising stock options, the amount of compensation cost for future services that the Company has not yet recognized and the amount of tax benefits that would be recorded in “Additional paid-in capital” when the award becomes deductible are assumed to be used to repurchase shares.

(unaudited)

It has been the Company’s intent to settle the principal amount of the convertible debt in cash; accordingly, the principal amount has been excluded from the determination of diluted earnings per share. On April 18, 2013, the Company decided to settle the payment of the conversion spread in cash as discussed in Note 11 Convertible Debt. Through April 18, 2013, the Company accounted for the conversion spread using the treasury stock method by adjusting the diluted weighted average common shares if the effect was dilutive. From April 18, 2013, the numerator for the computation of earnings per common share-diluted will be adjusted for any changes in the fair value of the conversion spread until the final settlement date. For the three and six months ended May 31, 2013, since the effect was anti-dilutive, there was no impact on the numerator of earnings per common share-diluted.
The calculation of earnings per common share attributable to SYNNEX Corporation is presented in Note 12.  
Reclassifications
Certain reclassifications have been made to prior period amounts in the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows to conform to current period presentation. Such reclassifications have no effect on the cash flow from operating, investing and financing activities as previously reported.
Recent accounting pronouncements  
In February 2013, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued an accounting update which requires companies to provide information about the amounts reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income by component. In addition, an entity is required to present significant amounts reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income but only if the amount reclassified is required under U.S. GAAP to be reclassified to net income in its entirety in the same reporting period. The amendments are effective prospectively for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2012 with early adoption permitted. The accounting update will be applicable to the Company in the first quarter of fiscal year 2014.
In March 2013, the FASB issued an accounting update that clarifies the applicable guidance for the release of the cumulative translation adjustment when an entity ceases to have a controlling financial interest in a subsidiary or a group of assets that is a business within a foreign entity. The guidance clarifies that the accounting for the release of cumulative translation adjustment into net income for sales or transfers of a controlling financial interest within a foreign entity is the same irrespective of whether the sale or transfer is of a subsidiary or a group of assets that is a business. The accounting update is applicable for fiscal years and interim reporting periods within those years beginning after December 15, 2013 with early adoption permitted. The accounting update will be applicable for the Company in the second quarter of fiscal year 2014.
During fiscal year 2013, the following accounting standards were adopted:
In June 2011, the FASB issued an accounting update that amends the presentation of “Comprehensive income” in the financial statements. The new guidance is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011, with early adoption permitted. The Company adopted the accounting update in the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 and updated its presentation of comprehensive income in the financial statements.

NOTE 3—ACQUISITIONS AND DIVESTITURES:
Fiscal year 2013 acquisitions
In April 2013, the Company acquired substantially all of the assets of Supercom Canada Limited ("Supercom Canada"), a distributor of information technology ("IT") and consumer electronics products and services in Canada. The purchase price was approximately CAD36,500 , or US$35,599 , in cash, including CAD4,450 , or US$4,340 , in deferred payments, subject to certain post-closing conditions, payable within 18 months. Subsequent to the acquisition, the Company repaid debt and working capital lines in the amount of $53,721 . Based on the preliminary purchase allocation, the Company recorded net tangible assets of $26,946 , goodwill of $5,852 and intangible assets of $3,901 in relation to this acquisition. The determination of the fair value of the assets and liabilities acquired is preliminary and subject to the finalization of more detailed analysis. This acquisition did not meet the conditions of a material business combination and was not subject to the disclosure requirements of accounting guidance for business combinations utilizing the purchase method of accounting.

Fiscal year 2012 acquisitions and divestitures
In fiscal year 2012, the Company purchased all the shares of its subsidiary SYNNEX Infotec Corporation (“Infotec Japan”) held by the noncontrolling interest SB Pacific Corporation Limited ("SB Pacific") for $17,450 , of which $11,400 was paid during the six months ended May 31, 2013. The transaction increased the Company's ownership interest in Infotec Japan from 70.0% to 99.8% . In fiscal year 2012, the Company also sold its 33.3% noncontrolling interest in SB Pacific, its equity-method investee at that time, back to SB Pacific. During the six months ended May 31, 2013, the Company received the final payment of $4,153 of the sale price.
In fiscal year 2012, the Company acquired a business in the Global Business Services ("GBS") segment for a purchase price of $6,200 with $1,200 payable upon the completion of certain post-closing procedures and $1,300 contingent consideration payable upon the achievement of certain target earnings. The Company recorded goodwill of $6,150 in relation to this acquisition. This acquisition did not meet the conditions of a material business combination and was not subject to the disclosure requirements of accounting guidance for business combinations utilizing the purchase method of accounting.

NOTE 4—SHARE-BASED COMPENSATION:  
The Company recognizes share-based compensation expense for all share-based awards made to employees and directors, including employee stock options, restricted stock awards, restricted stock units and employee stock purchases, based on estimated fair values.
The Company uses the Black-Scholes valuation model to estimate fair value of stock options. The Black-Scholes option-pricing model was developed for use in estimating the fair value of short-lived exchange traded options that have no vesting restrictions and are fully transferable. In addition, option-pricing models require the input of highly subjective assumptions, including the option’s expected life and the price volatility of the underlying stock. The expected stock price volatility assumption was determined using historical volatility of the Company’s common stock.
The following table summarizes the number of share-based awards granted under the Company’s Amended and Restated 2003 Stock Incentive Plan, as amended, during the three and six months ended May 31, 2013 and 2012 and the grant-date fair value of the awards:

Short-term trading securities generally consist of equity securities relating to the Company’s deferred compensation plan. Short-term and long-term available-for-sale securities primarily consist of investments in other companies’ equity securities. Held-to-maturity investments primarily consist of term deposits with maturities from the date of purchase greater than three months and less than one year. These term deposits are held until the maturity date and are not traded. Short-term cost-method securities primarily consist of investments in a hedge fund and a private equity fund under the Company’s deferred compensation plan. Long-term cost-method investments consist of investments in equity securities of private entities.
Trading securities and available-for-sale securities are recorded at fair value in each reporting period and therefore the carrying value of these securities equals their fair value. For cost-method securities, the Company records an impairment charge when the decline in fair value is determined to be other-than-temporary. The fair value of the cost-method investments is based on (i) the published fund values, (ii) a valuation model developed internally based on the published value of the securities held by the fund or (iii) an internal valuation of the investee.

NOTE 7—DERIVATIVE INSTRUMENTS:  
In the ordinary course of business, the Company is exposed to foreign currency risk, interest risk, equity risk and credit risk. The Company’s transactions in some of its foreign operations are denominated in local currency. The Company’s foreign locations enter into transactions, and own monetary assets and liabilities, that are denominated in currencies other than their functional currency. As part of its risk management strategy, the Company uses short-term forward contracts to minimize its balance sheet exposure to foreign currency risk. These derivatives are not designated as hedging instruments. The forward exchange contracts are recorded at fair value in each reporting period and any gains or losses, resulting from the changes in fair value, are recorded in earnings in the period of change. Generally, the Company does not use derivative instruments to cover equity risk and credit risk. The Company’s policy is not to allow the use of derivatives for trading or speculative purposes. The fair value of the Company’s forward exchange contracts are also disclosed in Note 8.
The following table summarizes the fair value of the Company’s foreign exchange forward contracts as of May 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012 :

The notional amounts of the foreign exchange forward contracts that were outstanding as of May 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012 were $175,227 and $128,518 , respectively. The notional amounts represent the gross amounts of foreign currency that will be bought or sold at maturity. In relation to its forward contracts, the Company recorded gains of $3,052 and $6,480 in “Other income (expense), net” during the three and six months ended May 31, 2013 , respectively, and gains of $2,324 and $1,368 , during the three and six months ended May 31, 2012 , respectively.

NOTE 8—FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS:  
The Company’s fair value measurements are classified and disclosed in one of the following three categories:  
Level 1: Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for identical, unrestricted assets or liabilities;
Level 2: Quoted prices in markets that are not active, or inputs which are observable, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the asset or liability;
Level 3: Prices or valuation techniques that require inputs that are both significant to the fair value measurement and unobservable (i.e., supported by little or no market activity).

The Company's cash equivalents consist primarily of highly liquid investments in money market funds and term deposits with maturity periods of three months or less. The carrying value of the cash equivalents approximates the fair value since they are near their maturity. Investments in trading and available-for-sale securities consist of equity securities and are recorded at fair value based on quoted market prices. The fair values of forward exchange contracts are measured based on the foreign currency spot and forward rates quoted by the banks or foreign currency dealers.
The acquisition-related contingent consideration liability represents the future potential earn-out payments relating to the acquisitions in the GBS segment. The fair values of the contingent consideration liabilities are based on the Company’s probability assessment of the established profitability measures during the periods ranging from one year to three years from the date of the acquisitions. During the three and six months ended May 31, 2013 , the fair value of the contingent consideration liability was remeasured and the resulting decrease of $142 and $447 , respectively, were recorded as a benefit to “Selling, general and administrative expenses” in the Consolidated Statements of Operations. The change in the fair value was due to updated estimates of expected revenue and gross profit related to the achievement of established earn-out targets. The remaining change in the carrying value of the liability is due to the translation effect of foreign currencies.
The carrying value of held-to-maturity securities, accounts receivable, accounts payable and short-term debt, approximate fair value due to their short maturities and the interest rates which are variable in nature. The carrying value of the Company's term loans approximate their fair value since they bear interest rates that are similar to existing market rates. The convertible debt had a carrying value of $143,750 and $141,436 as of May 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012, respectively. The fair value of the convertible debt was $167,735 as of November 30, 2012 , which is based on the closing price of the convertible debt traded in a limited trading market and is categorized as level 2 in the fair value measurement category levels. On April 16, 2013, the Company called all of the outstanding convertible debt, as a result, the financial instrument was no longer traded. The Company gave notice to the converting noteholders that it will settle all of the convertible debt in cash. The final settlement of amounts due upon conversion of the convertible debt will be made during the three months ending August 31, 2013.
During the three and six months ended May 31, 2013 , there were no transfers between the fair value measurement category levels.

NOTE 9—ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE ARRANGEMENTS:  
The Company primarily finances its United States operations with an accounts receivable securitization program (the “U.S. Arrangement”). The Company can finance up to a maximum of $400,000 in U.S. trade accounts receivable (“U.S. Receivables”). The maturity date of the U.S. Arrangement is October 18, 2015. The effective borrowing cost under the U.S.

Arrangement is a blend of the prevailing dealer commercial paper rates plus a program fee of 0.425% per annum based on the used portion of the commitment, and a facility fee of 0.425% per annum payable on the aggregate commitment of the lenders. As of both May 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012 there were no borrowings outstanding under the U.S. Arrangement.
Under the terms of the U.S. Arrangement, the Company sells, on a revolving basis, its U.S. Receivables to a wholly-owned, bankruptcy-remote subsidiary. The borrowings by this subsidiary are secured by pledging all of such subsidiary's rights, title and interest in and to the U.S. Receivables as security for repayment of its borrowings. Any borrowings under the U.S. Arrangement are recorded as debt on the Company's Consolidated Balance Sheets. As is customary in trade accounts receivable securitization arrangements, a credit rating agency's downgrade of the third party issuer of commercial paper or of a back-up liquidity provider (which provides a source of funding if the commercial paper market cannot be accessed) could result in an increase in the Company's cost of borrowing or loss of the Company's financing capacity under these programs if the commercial paper issuer or liquidity back-up provider is not replaced. Loss of such financing capacity could have a material adverse effect on the Company's financial condition and results of operations.
The Company also has other financing agreements in North America with various financial institutions (“Flooring Companies”) to allow certain customers of the Company to finance their purchases directly with the Flooring Companies. Under these agreements, the Flooring Companies pay the Company directly on behalf of the customer and typically charge certain fees which the Company records as flooring fees. The Company is contingently liable to repurchase inventory sold under flooring agreements in the event of any default by its customers under the agreement and such inventory being repossessed by the Flooring Companies. Please see Note 17—Commitments and Contingencies for further information.

Infotec Japan has arrangements with various banks and financial institutions for the sale and financing of approved accounts receivable and notes receivable. The amount outstanding under these arrangements that was sold, but not collected as of May 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012 was $14,783 and $11,233 , respectively.

Convertible debt  
In May 2008, the Company issued $143,750 of aggregate principal amount of its 4.0% Convertible Senior Notes due 2018 (the “Convertible Senior Notes”) in a private placement. The carrying amount of the Convertible Senior Notes, net of the unamortized debt discount, was $143,750 and $141,436 as of May 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012 , respectively. See Note 11 Convertible Debt.
SYNNEX U.S. securitization  
The Company can finance up to a maximum of $400,000 in U.S. Receivables under its U.S. Arrangement. See Note 9 Accounts Receivable Arrangements. The effective borrowing cost under the U.S. Arrangement is a blend of the prevailing dealer commercial paper rates, plus a program fee on the used portion of the commitment and a facility fee payable on the aggregate commitment. As of both May 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012 there were no borrowings outstanding under the U.S. Arrangement.
SYNNEX U.S. senior secured revolving line of credit  
The Company has a senior secured revolving line of credit arrangement (the “Revolver”) with a financial institution which provides a maximum commitment of $100,000 which expires in October 2017. The Revolver includes an accordion feature to increase the maximum commitment by an additional $50,000 to $150,000 at the Company's request, in the event the current lender consents to such increase or another lender participates in the Revolver. Interest on borrowings under the Revolver is based on a base rate or London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”), at the Company's option. The margin on the LIBOR is determined in accordance with the Company's fixed charge coverage ratio and is currently 1.50% per annum. The Company's base rate is based on the financial institution's prime rate. The Revolver also contains an unused line fee of 0.30% per annum. The Revolver is secured by the Company's inventory and other assets. It would be an event of default under the Revolver if a lender under the U.S. Arrangement declines to extend the maturity date at any point within thirty days prior to the maturity date of the U.S. Arrangement, unless the Company has a binding commitment in place to renew or replace the U.S. Arrangement. There is no event of default if within the thirty day period prior to maturity of the Revolver: (a) borrowing availability exceeds 90% of the commitment amount and (b) the fixed charge coverage ratio, when measured at the end of the fiscal quarter on a trailing four quarter basis, is greater than or equal to 1.75 to 1.00. There were no borrowings outstanding under this credit arrangement as of both May 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012 .
SYNNEX Canada revolving line of credit  
SYNNEX Canada Limited ("SYNNEX Canada") has a revolving line of credit arrangement with a financial institution (the “Canadian Revolving Arrangement”) which has a maximum commitment of CAD100,000 and includes an accordion feature to increase the maximum commitment by an additional CAD25,000 to CAD125,000 , at SYNNEX Canada's request. The Canadian Revolving Arrangement also provides a sublimit of $5,000 for the issuance of standby letters of credit. As of May 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012 , outstanding standby letters of credit totaled $3,323 and $3,447 , respectively. SYNNEX Canada has granted a security interest in substantially all of its assets in favor of the lender under the Canadian Revolving Arrangement.

In May 2008, the Company issued $143,750 of aggregate principal amount of the Convertible Senior Notes in a private placement. The Convertible Senior Notes had a cash coupon interest rate of 4.0% per annum with a maturity date of May 15, 2018, subject to earlier redemption, repurchase or conversion. Interest on the Convertible Senior Notes was payable in cash semi-annually in arrears on May 15 and November 15 of each year, and commenced on November 15, 2008. The Convertible Senior Notes were senior unsecured obligations of the Company and ranked equally in right of payment with other senior unsecured debt and ranked senior to subordinated debt, if any. The Convertible Senior Notes effectively ranked junior to any of the Company's secured indebtedness to the extent of the assets securing such indebtedness. The Convertible Senior Notes were also structurally subordinated in right of payment to all indebtedness and other liabilities and commitments (including trade payables) of the Company's subsidiaries.
The Convertible Senior Notes are governed by an indenture, dated as of May 12, 2008, between U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee, and the Company (the "Indenture"), which contains customary events of default. 
Holders could convert their Convertible Senior Notes at their option at any time prior to the close of business on the business day immediately preceding the maturity date for such Convertible Senior Notes under the following circumstances: (1) during any fiscal quarter after the fiscal quarter ended August 31, 2008 (and only during such fiscal quarter), if the last reported sale price of the Company’s common stock for at least twenty trading days in the period of thirty consecutive trading days ending on the last trading day of the immediately preceding fiscal quarter is equal to or more than 130% of the conversion price of the Convertible Senior Notes on the last day of such preceding fiscal quarter; (2) during the five business-day period after any five consecutive trading-day period (the “Measurement Period”) in which the trading price per $ 1 principal amount of the Convertible Senior Notes for each day of that Measurement Period was less than 98% of the product of the last reported sale price of the common stock and the conversion rate of the Convertible Senior Notes on each such day; (3) if the Company has called the particular Convertible Senior Notes for redemption, until the close of business on the business day prior to the redemption date; or (4) upon the occurrence of certain corporate transactions. On April 16, 2013, the Company announced that holders had the right to surrender their Convertible Senior Notes for repurchase by the Company pursuant to their option (the "Put Option") under the Indenture. The Put Option entitled each holder of the Convertible Senior Notes to require the Company to repurchase all or a portion (in principal amount equal to $1 or integral multiples thereof) of such holder's Convertible Senior Notes at a purchase price (the "Repurchase Price") equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Convertible Senior Notes plus any accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, May 15, 2013 upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Indenture and the Convertible Senior Notes. No Convertible Senior Notes were surrendered for repurchase pursuant to the Put Option.
In addition, the Company announced on April 16, 2013 that it would redeem all of the outstanding Convertible Senior Notes on May 20, 2013 (the "Redemption Date") at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Convertible Senior Notes redeemed plus any accrued and unpaid interest (including any contingent interest) up to, but not including, the Redemption Date, as provided for in the Indenture and the Convertible Senior Notes. As of May 17, 2013, all of the outstanding Convertible Senior Notes were converted and, accordingly, none were redeemed on the Redemption Date.
The conversion rate for the Convertible Senior Notes was 33.9945 shares of common stock per $1 principal amount of Convertible Senior Notes, equivalent to an initial conversion price of $29.42 per share of common stock. The Convertible Senior Notes were convertible at the option of the Company into cash, shares of Common Stock or a combination of cash and shares of Common Stock in accordance with and subject to the terms of the Indenture and the Convertible Senior Notes. The Company gave notice to the converting noteholders that it will settle all of the Convertible Senior Notes in cash.
As of May 31, 2013, the Company recorded an estimated liability of $35,646 for the difference between the conversion value of the Convertible Senior Notes and the principal amount of the Convertible Senior Notes (the "Conversion Spread") by adjusting "Additional paid-in-capital." The final settlement amount due will be calculated in accordance with the

Indenture based on the volume weighted-average trading price of the Company's common stock over the 60 consecutive trading-day period beginning on and including the third trading day after the related conversion date. The payments will be made in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013.
The Company maintains within its U.S. Arrangement and Revolver ongoing features that allow the Company to utilize cash from these facilities to cash settle conversions of the Convertible Senior Notes.
Based on a cash coupon interest rate of 4.0% , the Company recorded contractual interest expense of $1,387 and $3,010 during the three and six months ended May 31, 2013 , respectively, and $1,624 and $3,248 during the three and six months ended May 31, 2012 , respectively. Based on an effective rate of 8.0% , the Company recorded non-cash interest expenses of $926 and $2,314 , respectively, during the three and six months ended May 31, 2013 and $1,301 and $2,585 , respectively, during the three and six months ended May 31, 2012 . As of both May 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012 , the carrying value of the initial equity component of the Convertible Senior Notes, net of allocated issuance costs, was $22,836 .

It has been the Company’s intent to settle the principal amount of the Convertible Senior Notes in cash; accordingly, the principal amount has been excluded from the determination of diluted earnings per share. On April 18, 2013, the Company decided to settle the payment of the conversion spread in cash as discussed in Note 11 Convertible Debt. Through April 18, 2013, the Company accounted for the conversion spread using the treasury stock method by adjusting the diluted weighted average common shares if the effect was dilutive. From April 18, 2013, the numerator for the computation of earnings per common share-diluted will be adjusted for any dilutive changes in the fair value of the conversion spread until the final settlement date. For the three and six months ended May 31, 2013, fair value of the conversion spread decreased $1,981 and therefore was excluded from the computation of diluted earnings per common share since the effect was anti-dilutive.
Options to purchase 14 and 16 shares of common stock during the three and six months ended May 31, 2013 , respectively, and 3 and 5 shares during the three and six months ended May 31, 2012 , respectively, have not been included in the computation of diluted earnings per share as their effect would have been anti-dilutive.

MiTAC International generally has significant influence over the Company and over the outcome of all matters submitted to stockholders for consideration, including any merger or acquisition of the Company. Among other things, this could have the effect of delaying, deterring or preventing a change of control over the Company.
The Company purchased inventories from MiTAC International and its affiliates totaling $139 and $2,865 during the three and six months ended May 31, 2013 , respectively, and $738 and $979 during the three and six months ended May 31, 2012, respectively.

The Company negotiates manufacturing, pricing and other material terms on a case-by-case basis with MiTAC International and its contract assembly customers for a given project. While MiTAC International is a related party and a controlling stockholder, the Company believes that the significant terms under its arrangements with MiTAC International, including pricing, will not materially differ from the terms it could have negotiated with unaffiliated third parties, and it has adopted a policy requiring that material transactions with MiTAC International or its related parties be approved by its Audit Committee, which is composed solely of independent directors. In addition, Matthew Miau’s compensation is approved by the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, which is also composed solely of independent directors.  
Synnex Technology International is a publicly-traded corporation in Taiwan that currently provides distribution and fulfillment services to various markets in Asia and Australia, and is also a potential competitor of the Company. Neither MiTAC International, nor Synnex Technology International is restricted from competing with the Company.

SYNNEX CORPORATION
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS---(continued)
For the three and six months ended May 31, 2013 and 2012
(currency and share amounts in thousands, except per share amounts)
(unaudited)

NOTE 17—COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES:
The Company was contingently liable as of May 31, 2013 under agreements to repurchase repossessed inventory acquired by Flooring Companies as a result of default on floor plan financing arrangements by the Company's customers. These arrangements are described in Note 9 Accounts Receivable Arrangements. Losses, if any, would be the difference between the repossession cost and the resale value of the inventory. There have been no repurchases through May 31, 2013 under these agreements and the Company is not aware of any pending customer defaults or repossession obligations. From time to time, the Company receives notices from third parties, including customers and suppliers, seeking indemnification, payment of money or other actions in connection with claims made against them. Also, the Company is involved in various bankruptcy preference actions where the Company was a supplier to the companies now in bankruptcy. In addition, the Company is subject to various other claims, both asserted and unasserted, that arise in the ordinary course of business. The Company is not currently involved in any material proceedings.
In December 2009, the Company sold China Civilink (Cayman), which operated in China as HiChina Web Solutions, to Alibaba.com Limited. In conjunction with this sale, the Company has recorded a contingent indemnification liability of $4,122 .
The Company does not believe that the above commitments and contingencies will have a material adverse effect on the Company's results of operations, financial position or cash flows.

Overview
We are a Fortune 500 corporation and a leading business process services company, servicing resellers, retailers and original equipment manufacturers, or OEMs, in multiple regions around the world. Our primary business process services are wholesale distribution and business process outsourcing, or BPO. We operate in two segments: distribution services and global business services, or GBS. Our distribution services segment distributes IT systems, peripherals, system components, software, networking equipment, CE, and complementary products and also offers data center server and storage solutions. Our GBS segment offers a range of BPO services to customers that include technical support, renewals management, lead management, direct sales, customer service, back office processing and information technology outsourcing, or ITO. Many of these services are delivered and supported on the proprietary software platforms we have developed to provide additional value to our customers.
We combine our core strengths in distribution with our BPO services to help our customers achieve greater efficiencies in time to market, cost minimization, real-time linkages in the supply chain and after-market product support. We distribute more than 25,000 technology products (as measured by active SKUs) from more than 200 IT, CE and OEM suppliers to more than 20,000 resellers, system integrators, and retailers throughout the United States, Canada, Japan and Mexico. As of May 31, 2013 , we had over 12,500 full-time and temporary employees worldwide. From a geographic perspective, approximately 88% and 87% , of our total revenue was from North America for the three and six months ended May 31, 2013 , respectively, and 86% for both the three and six months ended May 31, 2012 .
In our distribution services segment, we purchase IT systems, peripherals, system components, software, networking equipment, CE and complementary products from our primary suppliers such as Hewlett-Packard Company, or HP, Lenovo, Seagate Technologies LLC, Panasonic Corporation and Acer Inc. and sell them to our reseller and retail customers. We perform a similar function for our distribution of licensed software products. Our reseller customers include value-added resellers, or VARs, corporate resellers, government resellers, system integrators, direct marketers, and national and regional retailers. In our distribution business, we provide comprehensive IT solutions in key vertical markets such as government and healthcare. We also provide specialized service offerings that increase efficiencies in areas like print management, renewals, networking and other services. In our GBS segment, our customers are primarily manufacturers of IT hardware and CE devices, developers of software, cloud service providers, and broadcast and social media.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
There have been no material changes in our critical accounting policies and estimates for the three and six months ended May 31, 2013 from our disclosure in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended November 30, 2012 . For more information on our critical accounting policies, please see the discussion in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended November 30, 2012 .
Recent Acquisitions and Divestitures 
We seek to augment our services offering expansion with strategic acquisitions of businesses and assets that complement and expand our global BPO capabilities. We also divest businesses that we deem no longer strategic to our ongoing operations. Our historical acquisitions have brought us new reseller and retail customers, OEM suppliers, and product lines, have extended the geographic reach of our operations, particularly in targeted markets, and have diversified and expanded the services we provide to our OEM suppliers and customers. We account for acquisitions using the purchase method of accounting and include acquired entities within our Consolidated Financial Statements from the closing date of the acquisition.  
Acquisitions during fiscal year 2013
In April 2013, we acquired substantially all of the assets of Supercom Canada Limited or Supercom Canada, a distributor of IT and consumer electronics products and services in Canada. The purchase price was approximately CAD36.5 million, or US$35.6 million, in cash, including approximately CAD4.5 million, or US$4.3 million, in deferred payments, subject to certain post-closing conditions, payable within 18 months. Subsequent to the acquisition, we repaid debt and working capital lines in the amount of $53.7 million . Based on the preliminary purchase price allocation, we recorded net tangible assets of $26.9 million, goodwill of $5.9 million and intangible assets of $3.9 million in relation to this acquisition. The determination of the fair value of the assets and liabilities acquired is preliminary and subject to the finalization of more detailed analysis. The acquisition is integrated into the distribution services segment and is expected to expand our existing product and service offerings in Canada.
Acquisitions and divestitures during fiscal year 2012
In fiscal year 2012, we purchased all the shares of our subsidiary SYNNEX Infotec Corporation, or Infotec Japan, held by the noncontrolling interest SB Pacific Corporation Limited, or SB Pacific, for $17.5 million , of which $11.4 million was paid during the six months ended May 31, 2013 . The transaction increased our ownership interest in Infotec Japan from 70.0% to 99.8% . In fiscal year 2012, we also sold our 33.3% noncontrolling interest in SB Pacific, our equity-method investee at that time, back to SB Pacific. During the six months ended May 31, 2013 , we received the final payment of $4.2 million of the sale price.
In fiscal year 2012, we acquired a business in the GBS segment for a purchase price of $6.2 million with $1.2 million payable upon the completion of certain post-closing procedures and $1.3 million contingent consideration payable upon the achievement of certain target earnings. We recorded goodwill of $6.2 million in relation to this acquisition.

In our distribution services segment, we sell in excess of 25,000 technology products (as measured by active SKUs) from more than 200 IT, CE and OEM suppliers to more than 20,000 resellers. The prices of our products are highly dependent on the volumes purchased within a product category. The products we sell from one period to the next are often not comparable because of rapid changes in product models and features. The revenue generated in our GBS segment relates to BPO services such as technical support, renewals management, lead management, direct sales, customer service, back office processing and ITO. The inter-segment elimination relates to the inter-segment, back office support services provided by our GBS segment to our distribution services segment. Third-party GBS revenue can be derived by netting the inter-segment eliminations into GBS revenue. The GBS programs and customer service requirements change frequently from one period to the next and are often not comparable.
Revenue in our distribution services segment increased by 4.2% during the three months ended May 31, 2013 compared to the three months ended May 31, 2012. The increase in revenue was due to growth in U.S. sales, local currency sales in Japan and the mid quarter acquisition of Supercom Canada which contributed 1.8% of the increase. These increases were offset in part by 2.6% for changes in foreign exchange rates, primarily from the weakening of the Japanese Yen.

Table of Contents

The increase in our revenue was caused by the growth in system components of 10%, primarily from hard disk drives and server processors, and peripherals of 9% primarily from the addition of new products, networking of 3%, systems of 2%, offset in part by 22% lower software sales primarily due to lower gaming sales and the strategic consolidation of less profitable products.
Revenue in our distribution services segment increased by 2.0% during the six months ended May 31, 2013 compared to the six months ended May 31, 2012. The increase in revenue was due to growth in U.S. sales, local currency sales in Japan and the April 2013 acquisition of Supercom Canada which contributed 0.9% of the increase. These increases were offset in part by 2.0% for changes in foreign exchange rates, primarily from the weakening of the Japanese Yen.
The increase in revenue by product category, in comparison to the six months ended May 31, 2012, was caused by 10% higher sales of system components, primarily from the increase in sales of hard disk drives, and an 8% increase in peripherals, primarily due to the addition of new products offset in part by weaker printer sales, an 8% increase in networking products sales, offset in part by 21% lower software sales, primarily due to lower gaming sales and the strategic consolidation of lesser profitable products, and 3% lower systems sales.
In our GBS segment, revenue in the three and six months ended May 31, 2013 increased 15.4% and 15.9%, respectively, from the three and six months ended May 31, 2012 primarily due to revenue generated from new customer contracts and increased business volume from certain existing contracts due to our broad range of service offerings.
The demand for our products and services has continued to be stable in the U.S and Asian markets, while Canada continues to experience a challenging demand environment.

Our gross profit is affected by a variety of factors, including competition, average selling prices, mix of products and services we sell, our customers, our sources of revenue by segments, product costs along with rebate and discount programs from our suppliers, reserves or settlements thereof, freight costs, charges for inventory losses, acquisitions and divestitures of business units, fluctuations in revenue, and our mix of business including our GBS services.
Our gross margins were lower by 33 basis points during the three months ended May 31, 2013 compared to the prior year period. Gross margins were negatively impacted by pricing pressure and mixed demand in our distribution segment, offset in part by the favorable impact of the changes in our mix of business by segment.
Our gross margins during the six months ended May 31, 2013, were 44 basis points lower as compared to the six months ended May 31, 2012. Our margins in the six months ended May 31, 2013 were impacted adversely by pricing pressure, lower incentive rebates and softer end market demand in certain geographies such as Canada, offset by the favorable impact of our mix of business by segment and lower reserve requirements. Gross margins in the prior year period primarily benefited from the shortages of hard disk drives.
No specific customers, or changes in pricing strategy, individually or in the aggregate, contributed materially to the change in gross profit.

Approximately two-thirds of our selling, general and administrative expenses consist of personnel costs such as salaries, commissions, bonuses, share-based compensation, deferred compensation expense or income, and temporary personnel costs. Selling, general and administrative expenses also include costs of our facilities, utility expense, professional fees, depreciation expense on our capital equipment, bad debt expense, amortization expense on our intangible assets, and marketing expenses, offset in part by reimbursements from our OEM suppliers.
Our selling, general and administrative expenses in the three months ended May 31, 2013 were 5.9% higher compared to the three months ended May 31, 2012, primarily due to $6.1 million in higher personnel costs and general overhead expenses to support the growth in our GBS segment and for our mid quarter acquisition of Supercom Canada in our distribution segment. Our selling, general and administrative expenses include one-time integration expenses of $2.1 million related to the acquisition of Supercom Canada. These higher expenses were offset in part by the $2.9 million impact of fluctuations in foreign exchange rates, primarily due to the weakening of
