NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
For the three months ended February 28, 2017 and February 29, 2016
(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 has two reportable 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 February 28, 2017 and for the three months ended February 28, 2017 and February 29, 2016 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, 2016 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, 2016 .
The results of operations for the three months ended February 28, 2017 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending November 30, 2017 , or any future period, and the Company makes no representations related thereto.

NOTE 2—SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES:  
For a discussion of the Company's significant accounting policies, please see the discussion in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended November 30, 2016 . During the three months ended February 28, 2017, the Company adopted certain new accounting pronouncements which are discussed below.
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 February 28, 2017 , 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 February 28, 2017 , such losses have been within management’s expectations.  
One customer accounted for 17% of the Company's consolidated revenue during the three months ended February 28, 2017 . During the three months ended February 29, 2016 , no customer accounted for 10% or more of the Company's total revenue. Products purchased from the Company’s largest OEM supplier, HP Inc., accounted for approximately 14% and 18% of total revenue for the three months ended February 28, 2017 and February 29, 2016 , respectively.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS---(continued)
For the three months ended February 28, 2017 and February 29, 2016
(currency and share amounts in thousands, except per share amounts)
(unaudited)

As of February 28, 2017 , one customer comprised 14% of the total consolidated accounts receivable balance. As of November 30, 2016 , no customer comprised 10% or more of the total consolidated accounts receivable balance.
Inventories
Inventories as of November 30, 2016 were stated at the lower of cost or market. Commencing December 1, 2016, inventories are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value. 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 Balance Sheets, the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows and the notes thereto to conform to current period presentation, primarily pursuant to the adoption of new accounting pronouncements. The impact of reclassifications pursuant to adoption of new guidance is provided below under “Recently adopted accounting pronouncements.” Other reclassifications in the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows had no effect on cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities as previously reported.
Recently issued accounting pronouncements  
In June 2016, the Financial Accounting Standard Board (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. 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. Had the Company adopted this guidance during the three months ended February 28, 2017, income tax expense and cash used in operating activities would be lower by $1,411 and net income would be higher by approximately the same amount. The tax impact is included in additional paid-in capital for the three months ended February 28, 2017.
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.

For the three months ended February 28, 2017 and February 29, 2016

(unaudited)

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 has established an implementation team and engaged external advisers to assess the Company’s business and contracts. The Company is in the process of evaluating the impact of several aspects of the standard including principal versus agent considerations, identification of performance obligations and the determination of when control of goods and services transfers to the Company’s customers.
Recently adopted Accounting Pronouncements
In January 2017, the FASB issued guidance to simplify the accounting for goodwill impairment. It removes Step 2 of the goodwill impairment test, which requires a hypothetical purchase price allocation. Goodwill impairment will now be calculated as the amount by which a reporting unit’s carrying value exceeds its fair value, not exceeding the carrying amount of goodwill. In addition, income tax effects from any tax deductible goodwill shall also be considered in measuring goodwill impairment loss, if applicable. The guidance is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2019 and should be adopted prospectively. Early adoption is permitted for interim or annual goodwill impairment test performed with a measurement date after January 1, 2017. The Company adopted the guidance prospectively effective for its fiscal quarter ended February 28, 2017. The adoption had no impact on the Company's Consolidated Financial Statements.
In November 2016, the FASB issued new guidance which requires that a statement of cash flows explain the change during the period in the total of cash, cash equivalents, and amounts generally described as restricted cash or restricted cash equivalents. Therefore, amounts generally described as restricted cash and restricted cash equivalents should be included with cash and cash equivalents when reconciling the beginning-of-period and end-of-period total amounts shown on the statement of cash flows. The Company adopted this new guidance in the first quarter of fiscal year 2017, with retrospective effect. The adoption did not have a material impact on the Company's cash flow statement for the three months ended February 28, 2017. For the three months ended February 29, 2016, cash flows from investing activities decreased by $53,415 .
In October 2016, the FASB issued new guidance that requires a reporting entity to recognize the tax expense from intra-entity asset transfers of assets other than inventory in the selling entity’s tax jurisdiction when the transfer occurs, even though the pre-tax effects of that transaction are eliminated in consolidation. Any deferred tax asset that arises in the buying entity’s jurisdiction would also be recognized at the time of the transfer. The Company adopted this new guidance in the first quarter of fiscal year 2017 using the modified retrospective approach. The adoption did not have a material impact on the Company's Consolidated Financial Statements.
In August 2016, the 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 Company adopted this new standard in the first quarter of fiscal year 2017, with retrospective effect. The adoption did not have a material impact on the Company's cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities.
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 Company adopted this new standard in the first quarter of fiscal year 2017, with retrospective effect. Although the adoption did not materially impact the company's consolidated financial position or results of operations, it resulted in a reclassification of $44,116 of deferred tax assets from current to noncurrent and a reclassification of $448 of other accrued liabilities related to current deferred tax liabilities to noncurrent deferred tax liabilities at November 30, 2016. In addition, the Company recorded an offset of $5,000 of current deferred tax assets against

deferred tax liabilities, noncurrent as of November 30, 2016 in order to present a single noncurrent deferred tax balance by tax jurisdiction.
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 Company adopted this new standard in the first quarter of fiscal year 2017 prospectively. The adoption did not have a material impact on the Company's Consolidated Financial Statements.
In July 2015, the FASB issued a new accounting standard that simplifies the subsequent measurement of inventory. It replaces the 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 Company adopted this new standard in the first quarter of fiscal year 2017 prospectively. The adoption did not have a material impact on the Company's 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 Company adopted this new standard in the first quarter of fiscal year 2017 prospectively. The adoption had no impact on the Company's 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 Company adopted this new standard in the first quarter of fiscal year 2017, with retrospective effect. The adoption did not have a material impact on the Company's Consolidated Financial Statements.

NOTE 3—ACQUISITION:
In August 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. The Company recorded certain immaterial measurement period adjustments during the three months ended February 28, 2017. Acquisition-related and integration expenses were $9,798 , of which $611 was incurred during the three months ended February 28, 2017 . These charges were recorded in “Selling, general and administrative expenses.”
As of February 28, 2017 , the Company had paid $435,854 in cash. In March 2017, the Company received a refund related to certain post-closing adjustments, which reduces the above-mentioned purchase price by $6,500 with a corresponding reduction to goodwill.

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, performance-based restricted stock units and employee stock purchases, based on estimated fair values.

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 held-to-maturity investments consist of foreign government bonds purchased pursuant to local regulations, maturing in fiscal year 2023, and term deposits with maturities less than one year. These term deposits are renewed due to certain restrictions under the terms of an acquisition arrangement. 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 investments, 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 carrying values of long-term held-to-maturity investment in foreign government bonds of $1,232 as of February 28, 2017 approximate their fair value and unamortized cost due to the short period from their purchase in January 2017.
Cash flows from purchases, sales, and maturities of available-for-sale and held-to-maturity securities are classified as cash flows from investing activities and reported gross on a combined basis as these principally represent cash flows from held-to-maturity securities.

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 respective entities. 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 value of the Company’s derivative instruments as of February 28, 2017 and November 30, 2016 :

The notional amounts of the foreign exchange forward contracts that were outstanding as of February 28, 2017 and November 30, 2016 were $241,493 and $275,163 , respectively. The notional amounts represent the gross amounts of foreign currency, including the Canadian Dollar, British Pound, Japanese Yen, Indian Rupee, Brazilian Real, Mexican Peso, Euro 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 $2,197 and gains of $1,834 during the three months ended February 28, 2017 and February 29, 2016 , respectively, in “Other income (expense), net.” The gains and 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 months ended February 28, 2017 and February 29, 2016 , the Company recorded a gain before tax of $1,917 and a loss before tax of $8,290 , respectively, 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 months ended February 28, 2017 and February 29, 2016 , there was no hedge ineffectiveness related to these derivative instruments. For the three months ended February 28, 2017 and February 29, 2016 , 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 $554 each as of February 28, 2017 and $1,364 each as of November 30, 2016 .
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:

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 February 28, 2017 and November 30, 2016 .
The carrying values of held-to-maturity securities with maturities less than one year, 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 fair value of long-term held-to-maturity investments in foreign government bonds is based on quoted market prices. 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 three months ended February 28, 2017 , 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 (the "AR Arrangement"). The AR Arrangement expires on November 1, 2019. Under the terms of the AR Arrangement, the Company’s subsidiary that is the borrower under this facility can borrow up to a maximum of $600,000 based upon eligible trade accounts receivable denominated in United States dollars. The AR Arrangement includes an accordion feature to allow requests for an increase in the lenders' commitment by an additional $120,000 . The effective borrowing cost under the AR 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 0.75% p er annum based on the used portion of the commitment, and a facility fee of 0.35% per annum payable on the adjusted commitment of the lenders. As of February 28, 2017 and November 30, 2016 , there was $298,700 and $262,900 , respectively, outstanding under the AR Arrangement.
Under the terms of the AR Arrangement, the Company and one of the Company’s 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 AR Arrangement are recorded as debt on the Company's Consolidated Balance Sheets. As is customary in trade accounts receivable securitization arrangements like the AR 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.
The Company has an uncommitted supply-chain financing program with a global financial institution under which trade accounts receivable of a certain customer and its affiliates 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 February 28, 2017 and November 30, 2016 , accounts receivable sold to and held by the financial institution under this program were $54,132 and $8,988 , respectively. During the three months ended February 28, 2017 and February 29, 2016 , discount fees of $255 and $116 , respectively, related to the sale of trade accounts receivable under this facility 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

SYNNEX CORPORATION
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS---(continued)
For the three months ended February 28, 2017 and February 29, 2016
(currency and share amounts in thousands, except per share amounts)
(unaudited)

NOTE 16—COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES:
The Company leases certain of its facilities under operating lease agreements, which expire in various periods through 2027. Future minimum contractually required cash payment obligations under non-cancellable lease agreements as of February 28, 2017 were as follows:

During the three months ended February 28, 2017 and February 29, 2016 , rent expense was $27,992 and $25,417 , 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 February 28, 2017 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 February 28, 2017 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.

Overview
We are a Fortune 500 corporation and a leading business process services company, providing a comprehensive range of distribution, logistics and integration services for the technology industry and providing outsourced services focused on customer engagement strategy to a broad range of enterprises. We are organized to provide our products and services through two reportable business segments: Technology Solutions and Concentrix. Our Technology Solutions segment distributes peripherals, IT systems including data center server and storage solutions, system components, software, networking/communications/security equipment, consumer electronics, or CE, and complementary products. Within our Technology Solutions segment, we also provide systems design and integration solutions. Our Concentrix segment offers a portfolio of strategic solutions and end-to-end business 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.
In our Technology Solutions segment, we distribute more than 30,000 technology products (as measured by active SKUs) from more than 300 IT, CE and original equipment manufacturers, or OEM suppliers to more than 20,000 resellers, system integrators, and retailers throughout the United States, Canada and Japan. We purchase peripherals, IT systems, system components, software, networking/communications/security equipment, CE and complementary products from our suppliers 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. We combine our core strengths in distribution with demand generation, supply chain management and design and integration solutions 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 also provide comprehensive IT solutions in key vertical markets such as government and healthcare and we provide specialized service offerings that increase efficiencies in the areas of print management, renewals, networking, logistics services and supply chain

management. Additionally, we provide our customers with systems design and integration solutions for data center servers, and networking solutions built specific to our customers' workloads and data center environments.
Our Technology Solutions business is characterized by low gross profit as a percentage of revenue, or gross margin, and low income from operations as a percentage of revenue, or operating margin. The market for IT and CE products is generally characterized by declining unit prices and short product life cycles. We set our sales price based on the market supply and demand characteristics for each particular product or bundle of products we distribute and services we provide.
In our Concentrix segment, we provide a comprehensive range of strategic services and solutions to enhance our clients' customer life cycles to acquire, support and renew customer relationships, to automate and optimize processes, to maximize the value of every customer interaction and to improve business outcomes. Our portfolio of services includes end-to-end process outsourcing to customers in various industry vertical markets delivered through omni-channels that include both voice and non-voice mediums and in more than 40 languages. Our portfolio of solutions and services support our clients and their customers globally. In fiscal year 2016, we acquired Minacs, which provides greater scale and expanded our services in key industries such as automotive and service offerings such as marketing optimization.
From a geographic perspective, approximately 71% and 72% of our total revenue was from the United States for the three months ended February 28, 2017 and February 29, 2016 , respectively. The revenue attributable to countries is based on geographical locations from where products are delivered or from where customer service contracts are managed. Approximately 41% of our net property and equipment was located in the United States as of February 28, 2017 and November 30, 2016 . As of February 28, 2017 , we had approximately 108,000 full-time and temporary employees worldwide.
Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
During the three months ended February 28, 2017 , we adopted certain new accounting pronouncements. For more information on all of our critical accounting policies, please see the discussion in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended November 30, 2016 and Note 2 to the Consolidated Financial Statements.
Fiscal year 2016 acquisition
During fiscal year 2016, we acquired Minacs for a preliminary purchase price of $435.6 million in cash, subject to post-closing working capital adjustments. In March 2017, we received a refund related to certain post-closing adjustments, which reduces the above-mentioned purchase price by $6.5 million with a corresponding reduction to goodwill.

Certain non-GAAP financial information
In addition to disclosing financial results that are determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”), we also disclose certain non-GAAP financial information, including:
Revenue in constant currency, which is revenue adjusted 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 our business performance. Revenue in constant currency is calculated by translating the revenue for the three months ended February 28, 2017 , in local currency, using their comparable prior period 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.
Non-GAAP operating income, which is operating income as adjusted to exclude acquisition-related and integration expenses, restructuring costs and amortization of intangible assets.
Non-GAAP operating margin, which is Non-GAAP operating income, as defined above, divided by revenue.
Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, or adjusted EBITDA, which is non-GAAP operating income, as defined above, plus depreciation.
Non-GAAP diluted earnings per common share (“EPS”), which is diluted EPS excluding the per share, tax effected impact of (i) acquisition-related and integration expenses, (ii) restructuring costs, and (iii) amortization of intangible assets.
We believe that providing this additional information is useful to the reader to better assess and understand our operating performance, especially when comparing results with previous periods and for planning and forecasting in future periods, primarily because management typically monitors the business adjusted for these items in addition to GAAP results. Management also uses these non-GAAP measures to establish operational goals and, in some cases, for measuring performance for compensation purposes. However, analysis of results on a non-GAAP basis should be used as a complement to, and in

28

conjunction with, data presented in accordance with GAAP. Additionally, 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.

Our revenues include sales of products and services. In our Technology Solutions segment, we distribute a comprehensive range of products for the technology industry. 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. We also design and integrate data center servers. The revenue generated in our Concentrix segment relates to business services focused on process optimization, customer engagement strategy and back office automation. Inter-segment elimination represents services and transactions generated between our reportable segments that are eliminated on consolidation. Substantially all of the inter-segment revenue represents services provided by the Concentrix segment to the Technology Solutions segment.
Revenue in our Technology Solutions segment increased during the three months ended February 28, 2017 compared to the prior year period, primarily due to strong demand for our systems design and integration solutions and higher sales of our commercial products. Revenue in our Technology Solutions segment during the three months ended February 28, 2017 also benefited from foreign currency translation, primarily from the strengthening of the Canadian Dollar and Japanese Yen. On a constant currency basis, revenue in our Technology Solutions segment increased 8.6% during the three months ended February 28, 2017 , compared to the prior year period.
Revenue in our Concentrix segment increased during the three months ended February 28, 2017 , compared to the prior year period, primarily due to the Minacs acquisition completed on August 1, 2016. This increase was partially offset by unfavorable foreign currency translation, primarily from the weakening of the British Pound. On a constant currency basis, revenue in the Concentrix segment, excluding revenue contributed from the Minacs acquisition, was consistent with the prior year period.

Our gross margin is affected by a variety of factors, including competition, average selling prices, mix of products and services we sell, our customers, product costs along with rebate and discount programs from our suppliers, reserves or settlement adjustments, freight costs, charges for inventory losses, acquisitions and divestitures of business units and fluctuations in revenue. Concentrix margins, which are generally higher than those in our Technology Solutions segment, can be impacted by resource locations, customer mix and pricing, additional lead time for programs to be fully scalable, and

transition and initial set-up costs.
Our gross margin increased during the three months ended February 28, 2017 , compared to the prior year period, as the Concentrix segment represented a higher proportion of our total gross profit.
Gross profit in our Technology Solutions segment increased during the three months ended February 28, 2017 , compared to the prior year period, primarily due to higher sales of our system design and integration solutions and commercial products. Gross margin in our Technology Solutions segment during the three months ended February 28, 2017 was comparable to the prior year period.
Gross profit in our Concentrix segment increased during the three months ended February 28, 2017 , compared to the prior year period, primarily due to the impact of the Minacs acquisition and exit from a contract which incurred a loss of $4.0 million in the prior year quarter. Gross margin in the Concentrix segment decreased during the three months ended February 28, 2017, compared to the prior year period, primarily due to the mix of customers. This decrease in margin was partially offset by the favorable comparative impact of above mentioned contract.

Our selling, general and administrative expenses consist primarily of personnel costs such as salaries, commissions, bonuses, share-based compensation and temporary personnel costs. Selling, general and administrative expenses also include cost of warehouse, delivery centers and other non-integration facilities, utility expenses, legal and professional fees, depreciation on certain of our capital equipment, bad debt expense, amortization of our non-technology related intangible assets, and marketing expenses, offset in part by reimbursements from our OEM suppliers.
Selling, general and administrative expenses, as a percentage of revenue, increased during the three months ended February 28, 2017 , compared to the prior year period, as a result of an increase in our Concentrix segment. Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenue in our Concentrix segment were proportionately higher, compared to our Technology Solutions segment.
The decrease in our selling, general and administrative expenses, and its percentage of revenue, in our Technology Solutions segment during the three months ended February 28, 2017 , compared to the prior year period, was primarily due to effective cost management and economies of scale.
The increase in our selling, general and administrative expenses and the decrease in its percentage of revenue in our Concentrix segment during the three months ended February 28, 2017 , compared to the prior year period, was primarily the result of the Minacs acquisition. Amortization of intangible assets increased $4.8 million during the three months ended February 28, 2017 , primarily attributable to the Minacs acquisition in our Concentrix segment. We incurred $0.6 million acquisition-related and integration expenses during the three months ended February 28, 2017 , compared to $1.0 million during the three months ended February 29, 2016.

Amounts recorded in interest expense and finance charges, net, consist primarily of interest expense paid on our lines of credit and term loans, fees associated with third party accounts receivable flooring arrangements and the sale or pledge of accounts receivable through our securitization facility, offset by income earned on our cash investments.
Interest expense and finance charges, net, during the three months ended February 28, 2017 increased compared to the prior year period, due to higher interest expense as a result of additional borrowings to fund the Minacs acquisition and to support growth in both our segments, and the impact of step-up interest rate swaps related to our term loan in the United States. In connection with our term loan in the United States, we entered into step-up interest rate swaps, which effectively converted a portion of the floating rate term loan to a fixed interest rate, which is higher than the prevailing floating rate. The fixed rate on the swaps steps up to a higher rate in June each year.
