SYNNEX CORPORATION
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
For the three and nine months ended August 31, 2016 and 2015
(currency and share amounts in thousands, except per share amounts)
(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 headquartered in Fremont, California and has operations in North and South America, Asia-Pacific and Europe.
The Company operates in two segments: Technology Solutions and Concentrix. The Technology Solutions segment distributes a broad range of information technology (“IT”) systems and products and also provides systems design and integration solutions. The Concentrix segment offers a portfolio of strategic solutions and end-to-end global business outsourcing services focused on customer engagement strategy, process optimization, technology innovation, front and back-office automation and business transformation to clients in ten identified industry verticals.
The accompanying interim unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements as of August 31, 2016 and for the three and nine months ended August 31, 2016 and 2015 have been prepared by the Company in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The amounts as of November 30, 2015 have been derived from the Company’s annual audited financial statements. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) in the United States have been condensed or omitted in accordance with such rules and regulations. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements reflect all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary to state fairly the financial position of the Company and its results of operations and cash flows as of and for the periods presented. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the annual audited financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended November 30, 2015 .
The results of operations for the three months ended August 31, 2016 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending November 30, 2016 , or any future period and the Company makes no representations related thereto.

NOTE 2—SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES:  
The Company’s significant accounting policies are disclosed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended November 30, 2015 . There have been no material changes to these accounting policies. For a discussion of the significant accounting policies, please see the discussion in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended November 30, 2015 .
Concentration of credit risk  
Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to significant concentration of credit risk consist principally of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable and derivative instruments.
The Company’s cash and cash equivalents and derivative instruments are transacted and maintained with financial institutions with high credit standing and the compositions and maturities of which are regularly monitored by management. Through August 31, 2016 , the Company had not experienced any credit losses on such deposits and derivative instruments.  
Accounts receivable include amounts due from customers and original equipment manufacturer (“OEM”) 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 August 31, 2016 , such losses have been within management’s expectations.  
One customer accounted for 12% and 10% of the Company's total revenue during the three and nine months ended August 31, 2016 , respectively. During both the three and nine months ended August 31, 2015 , no customer accounted for 10% or more of the Company's total revenue. Products purchased from the Company’s largest OEM supplier, HP Inc. (formerly Hewlett-Packard Company) (“HP”), accounted for approximately 16% and 17% of total revenue during the three and nine months ended August 31, 2016 , respectively, and approximately 27% and 25% of total revenue during the three and nine

months ended August 31, 2015 , respectively. During the three and nine months ended August 31, 2015 , HP included both HP Inc. and Hewlett-Packard Enterprise.
As of both August 31, 2016 and November 30, 2015 , no customer comprised 10% of the total consolidated accounts receivable balance.
Book overdrafts
Book overdrafts, representing checks issued in excess of balances on deposit in the applicable bank accounts and which have not been paid by the applicable bank at the balance sheet date are classified as “Borrowings, current” in the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets. Under the terms of the Company’s banking arrangements, the respective financial institutions are not legally obligated to honor the book overdraft balances. The Company’s policy is to report the change in book overdrafts as a financing activity in the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.
Inventories
Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market. Cost is computed based on the weighted-average method. Inventories are comprised of finished goods and work-in-process. Finished goods include products purchased for resale, system components purchased for both resale and for use in the Company’s systems design and integration business, and completed systems. Work-in-process inventories are not material to the Consolidated Financial Statements.
Reclassifications
Certain reclassifications have been made to prior period amounts in the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows to conform to current period presentation. These reclassifications had no effect on the previously reported cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities.
Recently issued accounting pronouncements  
In August 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued an amendment to the statement of cash flows. It addresses eight specific cash flow issues to clarify the presentation and classification of cash receipts and cash payments in the statement of cash flows where diversity in practice exists. The guidance is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017, and early adoption is permitted. The amendments should be applied using a retrospective transition method to each period presented. The Company does not expect the adoption of this guidance to have a material impact on its Consolidated Financial Statements.
In June 2016, the FASB issued a new credit loss standard that replaces the incurred loss impairment methodology in current GAAP. The new impairment model requires immediate recognition of estimated credit losses expected to occur for most financial assets and certain other instruments. For available-for-sale debt securities with unrealized losses, the losses will be recognized as allowances rather than reductions in the amortized cost of the securities. It is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019 and interim periods within those annual periods. Early adoption for fiscal year beginning after December 15, 2018 is permitted. Entities will apply the standard’s provisions as a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the first effective reporting period. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the new guidance.
In March 2016, the FASB issued guidance which changes the accounting for share-based payment transactions, including the income tax consequences, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities, and classification in the Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows. The guidance is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016 and early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the new guidance.
In February 2016, the FASB issued a new standard which revises various aspects of accounting for leases. The most significant impact to the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements relates to the recognition by a lessee of a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for virtually all of its leases other than short-term leases. The liability will be equal to the present value of lease payments. The asset will be based on the liability, subject to adjustment, such as for initial direct costs. Consistent with current guidance, the recognition, measurement, and presentation of expenses and cash flows arising from a lease by a lessee primarily will depend on its classification. For income statement purposes, operating leases will result in a straight line expense while finance leases will result in a front-loaded expense pattern. This accounting standard will be applicable to the Company at the beginning of its first quarter of fiscal year 2020 using a modified retrospective approach and early adoption is

permitted. The Company expects that most of its operating lease commitments will be subject to the new standard and recognized as operating lease liabilities and right-of-use assets upon adoption and is currently evaluating the impact on its Consolidated Financial Statements upon the adoption of this new standard.
In January 2016, the FASB issued new guidance which amends various aspects of the recognition, measurement, presentation, and disclosure of financial instruments. With respect to the Company’s consolidated financial statements, the most significant impact relates to the accounting for equity investments (other than those that are consolidated or accounted under the equity method) which will be measured at fair value through earnings. The new guidance is effective for annual reporting periods, and interim periods within those years beginning after December 15, 2017, with early adoption permitted only for certain provisions. The amendments should be applied by means of a cumulative-effect adjustment to the balance sheet as of the beginning of the fiscal year of adoption, with other amendments related specifically to equity securities without readily determinable fair values applied prospectively. The Company does not expect the adoption of this standard to have a material impact on its Consolidated Financial Statements.
In November 2015, the FASB issued a new accounting standard that requires deferred tax liabilities and assets be classified as noncurrent on a company's balance sheet. The new standard should be applied either prospectively or retrospectively to all periods presented. It is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016 and interim periods within those annual periods, with early adoption permitted. The Company does not expect the adoption of this standard to have a material impact on its Consolidated Financial Statements.
In September 2015, the FASB issued a new accounting standard that eliminates the requirement to restate prior period financial statements for measurement period adjustments. The new guidance requires that the cumulative impact of a measurement period adjustment (including the impact on prior periods) be recognized in the reporting period in which the adjustment is identified. Consistent with existing guidance, the new guidance requires an acquirer to disclose the nature and amount of measurement period adjustments. In addition, companies are required to present separately on the face of the income statement or disclose in the notes the portion of the adjustment recorded in current-period earnings by line item that would have been recorded in previous reporting periods if the adjustment to the provisional amounts had been recognized as of the acquisition date. The new standard should be applied prospectively to measurement period adjustments that occur after the effective date. For public business entities, the new standard is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2015, with early adoption permitted. The Company does not expect the adoption of this standard to have a material impact on its Consolidated Financial Statements.
In July 2015, the FASB issued a new accounting standard that simplifies the subsequent measurement of inventory. It replaces the current lower of cost or market test with the lower of cost or net realizable value test. Net realizable value is defined as the estimated selling price in the ordinary course of business, less reasonably predictable costs of completion, disposal, and transportation. The new standard should be applied prospectively and is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016 and interim periods within those annual periods, with early adoption permitted. The Company does not expect the adoption of this standard to have a material impact on its Consolidated Financial Statements.
In April 2015, the FASB issued new guidance to customers about whether a cloud computing arrangement includes a software license. If the cloud computing arrangement includes a software license, the customer should account for the software license element of the arrangement consistent with the acquisition of other software licenses. If the cloud computing arrangement does not include a software license, the customer should account for the arrangement as a service contract. The new standard may be applied prospectively or retrospectively and is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2015 and interim periods within those annual periods, with early adoption permitted. The Company does not expect the adoption of this standard to have a material impact on its Consolidated Financial Statements.
In April 2015, the FASB issued a new accounting standard that requires that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be presented in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of the corresponding debt liability. In August 2015, the FASB clarified that for a line-of-credit arrangement, a company can continue to defer and present the debt issuance costs as an asset and subsequent amortization of debt issuance costs over the term of the line-of-credit arrangement, whether or not there are any outstanding borrowings on the line-of-credit arrangement. The new standard is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2015, with early adoption permitted, and is to be applied on a retrospective basis. The Company does not expect the adoption of this standard to have a material impact on its Consolidated Financial Statements.

In May 2014, the FASB issued a comprehensive new revenue recognition standard for contracts with customers that will supersede most current revenue recognition guidance, including industry-specific guidance. The core principle of this standard is that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. To achieve this core principle, the standard provides a five-step analysis of transactions to determine when and how revenue is recognized. Other major provisions include the capitalization and amortization of certain contract costs, ensuring the time value of money is considered in the transaction price, and allowing estimates of variable consideration to be recognized before contingencies are resolved in certain circumstances. This guidance also requires enhanced disclosures regarding the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from an entity’s contracts with customers. In August 2015, the FASB amended this accounting standard and postponed the implementation date to fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2017. Early application for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2016 is permitted. The standard permits the use of either the retrospective or cumulative effect transition method. This accounting standard will be applicable to the Company at the beginning of its first quarter of fiscal year 2019. The Company is currently evaluating the impact on its Consolidated Financial Statements upon the adoption of this new standard.

NOTE 3—ACQUISITION:
On August 1, 2016, the Company acquired 100% of the Minacs group of companies (“Minacs”), which provide integrated business process outsourcing services, for a preliminary purchase price of $435,635 , subject to certain post-closing adjustments. As of August 31, 2016, the Company had paid $425,903 and was obligated to pay an amount of $9,732 in cash. This remaining amount may be adjusted based upon the final value of the net tangible assets acquired.
The acquisition has been included in the Concentrix segment. Minacs provides greater scale and strengthens the Company’s position as a top global provider of customer engagement services, enhances domain expertise in Concentrix’s automotive industry vertical and accelerates Marketing Optimization and Internet of Things solutions with Minacs’ proprietary technology.
The acquisition has been accounted for as a business combination. The preliminary purchase price for the acquisition was allocated to the net tangible and intangible assets based on their preliminary fair values as of the acquisition date. The excess of the purchase price over the preliminary net tangible assets and preliminary intangible assets was recorded as goodwill. The goodwill balance is attributed to the assembled workforce and expanded market opportunities due to domain expertise in the automotive industry vertical and enhanced technology platforms resulting from the acquisition. The primary areas of the preliminary purchase price allocation that are not yet finalized relate to the fair values of certain tangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed, the valuation of intangible assets acquired, fair value of operating leases assumed, income and non-income based taxes and residual goodwill. The Company expects to continue to obtain information for the purpose of determining the fair value of the net assets acquired at the closing date during the measurement period and the amount of goodwill that will be deductible for tax purposes.

Short-term 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. Long-term available-for-sale securities primarily consist of investments in other companies’ equity securities. Long-term cost-method investments consist of investments in equity securities of private entities.
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 cost-method investments is based on an internal valuation of the investees.
The Company recorded a gain of $0 and $50 in “Other income (expense), net” in the Consolidated Statements of Operations during the three and nine months ended August 31, 2015 , respectively, for changes in the fair value of the Company's trading investments. There were no trading investments during the nine months ended August 31, 2016 .

NOTE 7—DERIVATIVE INSTRUMENTS:  
In the ordinary course of business, the Company is exposed to foreign currency risk, interest rate risk, equity risk and credit risk. The Company’s transactions in most of its foreign operations are primarily denominated in local currency. The Company enters into transactions, and owns monetary assets and liabilities, that are denominated in currencies other than the legal entity's functional currency. The Company may enter into forward contracts, option contracts, swaps, or other derivative instruments to offset a portion of the risk on expected future cash flows, on net investments in certain foreign subsidiaries and on certain existing assets and liabilities. However, the Company may choose not to hedge certain exposures for a variety of reasons including, but not limited to, accounting considerations and the prohibitive economic cost of hedging particular exposures. There can be no assurance the hedges will offset more than a portion of the financial impact resulting from movements in foreign currency exchange or interest rates.
All derivatives are recognized on the balance sheet at their fair value. Changes in the fair value of a derivative are recorded in the Consolidated Statements of Operations as “Other income (expense), net” or as a component of “Accumulated other comprehensive income (loss)” in the Consolidated Balance Sheets, as discussed below.
As part of its risk management strategy, the Company uses short-term forward contracts to offset the foreign exchange risk on assets and liabilities denominated in currencies other than the functional currency of the entity. These forward-exchange contracts 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.
In May 2015, the Company entered into interest rate swaps with an aggregate notional amount of $400,000 to economically convert a portion of its variable-rate debt to fixed-rate debt. The effective portions of cash flow hedges are recorded in “Accumulated other comprehensive income (loss)” until the hedged item is recognized in earnings. Deferred gains and losses associated with cash flow hedges of interest expense are recognized in “Other income (expense), net” in the same

period as the related expense is recognized. The ineffective portions and amounts excluded from the effectiveness testing of cash flow hedges are recognized in “Other income (expense), net.”
Derivative instruments designated as cash flow hedges must be de-designated as hedges when it is probable the forecasted hedged transaction will not occur in the initially identified time period or within a subsequent two -month time period. Deferred gains and losses in “Accumulated other comprehensive income (loss)” associated with such derivative instruments are reclassified immediately into “Other income (expense), net.” Any subsequent changes in fair value of such derivative instruments are reflected in “Other income (expense), net” unless they are re-designated as hedges of other transactions.
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 values of the Company’s derivative instruments are also disclosed in Note 8.
The following table summarizes the fair values of the Company’s outstanding derivative instruments as of August 31, 2016 and November 30, 2015 :

The notional amounts of the foreign exchange forward contracts that were outstanding as of August 31, 2016 and November 30, 2015 were $256,876 and $251,677 , respectively. The notional amounts represent the gross amounts of foreign currency, including the Canadian Dollar, British Pound, Euro, Japanese Yen, Brazilian Real, Mexican Peso, Australian Dollar and Philippine Peso, that will be bought or sold at maturity. The contracts mature in six months or less. In relation to its forward contracts not designated as hedging instruments, the Company recorded losses of $1,668 and $6,126 during the three and nine months ended August 31, 2016 , respectively, and gains of $3,518 and $15,252 during the three and nine months ended on August 31, 2015 , respectively, in “Other income (expense), net.” The losses on the Company’s foreign currency forward contracts are largely offset by changes in the fair value of the underlying hedged assets or liabilities.
During the three and nine months ended August 31, 2016 , the Company recorded losses before tax of $1,857 and $8,120 , respectively, and a loss before tax of $1,050 and $2,937 , respectively for the three and nine months ended August 31, 2015 , in “Other comprehensive income (loss)” related to changes in the fair value of its derivative instruments designated as cash flow hedging instruments. For the three and nine months ended August 31, 2016 and 2015 , there was no hedge ineffectiveness related to these derivative instruments. For the three and nine months ended August 31, 2016 and 2015 , there were no gains or losses recognized in earnings associated with an underlying exposure that did not, or was not expected to, occur; nor are there any anticipated in the normal course of business within the next twelve months.
In the Consolidated Balance Sheets, the Company does not offset derivative assets against liabilities in master netting arrangements. If derivative exposures covered by a qualifying master netting agreement had been netted in the Consolidated Statement of Financial Position, the total derivative asset and liability positions would have been reduced by $1,506 each as of August 31, 2016 and $1,168 each as of November 30, 2015 .
Credit exposure for derivative financial instruments is limited to the amounts, if any, by which the counterparties’ obligations under the contracts exceed our obligations to the counterparties. We manage the potential risk of credit losses

through careful evaluation of counterparty credit standing and selection of counterparties from a limited group of financial institutions.

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 following table summarizes the valuation of the Company’s investments and financial instruments that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis:

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. Restricted cash relates primarily to restrictions under bank guarantees, borrowing arrangements and the Minacs acquisition arrangement. The carrying values of the cash equivalents approximate fair value since they are near their maturity. Investments in 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. Fair values of interest rate swaps are measured using standard valuation models using inputs that are readily available in public markets, or can be derived from observable market transactions, including LIBOR spot and forward rates. The effect of nonperformance risk on the fair value of derivative instruments was not material as of August 31, 2016 and November 30, 2015 .
The acquisition-related contingent consideration liability represented the future potential earn-out payments relating to an acquisition. The fair value of the contingent consideration liability was based on the Company’s probability assessment of the established profitability measures during the earn-out period ranging from one to three years from the date of the acquisition. The liability was settled during the nine months ended August 31, 2016 .

The carrying values of held-to-maturity securities, accounts receivable, accounts payable and short-term debt approximate fair value due to their short maturities and 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.
During the nine months ended August 31, 2016 , there were no transfers between the fair value measurement category levels.

NOTE 9—ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE ARRANGEMENTS:  
The Company has an accounts receivable securitization program to provide additional capital for its operations in the United States (the “U.S. Arrangement”). The U.S. Arrangement has a maturity date of November 4, 2016. One of the Company’s subsidiaries, which is the borrower under the U.S. Arrangement, can borrow up to a maximum of $600,000 based upon eligible trade accounts receivable generated by the parent company and one of its United States subsidiaries. The U.S. Arrangement includes an accordion feature to allow requests for an increase in the lenders' commitment by an additional $100,000 . The effective borrowing cost under the U.S. Arrangement is a blended rate that includes prevailing dealer commercial paper rates and the daily London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”), plus a program fee of 0.375% p er annum based on the used portion of the commitment, and a facility fee of 0.40% per annum payable on the aggregate commitment of the lenders. As of August 31, 2016 , $91,500 was outstanding under the U.S. Arrangement. There were no borrowings outstanding as of November 30, 2015 .
Under the terms of the U.S. Arrangement, the Company and one of the Company’s United States subsidiaries sell, on a revolving basis, their receivables (other than certain specifically excluded receivables) to a wholly-owned, bankruptcy-remote subsidiary. The borrowings are funded by pledging all of the rights, title and interest in and to the receivables acquired by the Company's bankruptcy-remote subsidiary as security. 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 like the U.S. Arrangement, where some of the loans are funded through one or more lender’s affiliated asset-backed commercial paper programs, 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, or if the lender whose commercial paper issuer or liquidity back-up provider is not replaced does not elect to offer the Company an alternative rate. Loss of such financing capacity could have a material adverse effect on the Company's financial condition and results of operations.
In January 2016, the Company entered into an uncommitted supply-chain financing program with a United States financial institution under which trade accounts receivable of a certain customer may be acquired, without recourse, by the financial institution. Available capacity under this program is dependent on the level of our trade accounts receivable with this customer and the financial institution’s willingness to purchase such receivables. As of August 31, 2016 , accounts receivable sold to and held by the financial institution under this program were $58,238 . During the three and nine months ended August 31, 2016 , discount fees of $318 and $696 related to the sale of trade accounts receivable under this facility, respectively, were included in “Interest expense and finance charges, net” in the consolidated statement 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 to the Company the selling price of products sold to various customers, less a discount, within approximately 15 to 30 days from the date of sale. 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 16—Commitments and Contingencies for further information.

In November 2013, the Company entered into a senior secured credit agreement (the “U.S. Credit Agreement”) which was comprised of a $275,000 revolving credit facility and a $225,000 term loan.

The Company may request incremental commitments to increase the principal amount of revolving loans or term loans available under the U.S. Credit Agreement up to $350,000 . The U.S. Credit Agreement matures in May 2020.
Interest on borrowings under the U.S. Credit Agreement can be based on LIBOR or a base rate at the Company's option. Loans borrowed under the U.S. Credit Agreement bear interest, in the case of LIBOR loans, at a per annum rate equal to the applicable LIBOR, plus a margin which may range from 1.50% to 2.25% , based on the Company's consolidated leverage ratios, as determined in accordance with the U.S. Credit Agreement. Loans borrowed under the U.S. Credit Agreement that are not LIBOR loans, and are instead base rate loans, bear interest at a per annum rate equal to (i) the greatest of (A) the Federal Funds Rate plus a margin of 1/2 of 1.0%, (B) LIBOR plus 1.0% per annum, and (C) the rate of interest announced, from time to time, by the agent, Bank of America, N.A, as its “prime rate,” plus (ii) a margin which may range from 0.50% to 1.25% ,based on the Company's consolidated leverage ratios as determined in accordance with the U.S. Credit Agreement.

NOTE 16—COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES:
The Company leases certain of its facilities under operating lease agreements, which expire in various periods through 2025. Future minimum rental obligations under noncancellable lease agreements as of August 31, 2016 were as follows:
Fiscal Years Ending November 30,
 
2016 (remaining three months)
$
21,678

2017
81,173

2018

2020
48,121

Thereafter
85,501

Total minimum lease payments
$
367,942

During the three and nine months ended August 31, 2016 , rent expense was $26,395 and $76,998 , respectively. During the three and nine months ended August 31, 2015 , rent expense was $ 24,198 and $69,444 , respectively. Sublease income was immaterial for each of the periods presented and is immaterial for the amounts entitled to be received in future periods under non-cancellable sublease arrangements.
The Company was contingently liable as of August 31, 2016 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 and do not have expiration dates. As the Company does not have access to information regarding the amount of inventory purchased from the Company still on hand with the customer at any point in time, the Company’s repurchase obligations relating to inventory cannot be reasonably estimated. Losses, if any, would be the difference between the repossession cost and the resale value of the inventory. There have been no repurchases through August 31, 2016 under these agreements and the Company is not aware of any pending customer defaults or repossession obligations. The Company believes that, based on historical experience, the likelihood of a material loss pursuant to these inventory repurchase obligations is remote.
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, from time to time, the Company has been 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 currently not 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 .
Guarantees  
The Company, as the ultimate parent, guaranteed the obligations of SYNNEX Investment Holdings Corporation up to $35,035 in connection with the sale of China Civilink (Cayman), which operated in China as HiChina Web Solutions, to Alibaba.com Limited. The guarantee expires in fiscal year 2018.
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.
