Net Sales and EPS within Forecast Range
GREENVILLE, S.C.–May 09, 2017–ScanSource, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCSC), a leading global provider of technology products and solutions, today announced financial results for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2017, which ended March 31, 2017.
“We are pleased to report both net sales and EPS within our forecast range, and our Worldwide Barcode, Networking and Security segment delivered 4% sales growth,” said Mike Baur, CEO, ScanSource, Inc. “We executed well on our key opportunities for growth, including the Intelisys telecommunications and cloud services business.”
For the third quarter of fiscal year 2017, net sales increased 2% to $813.5 million from $798.4 million in the prior year quarter, primarily from growth for the Worldwide Barcode, Networking & Security segment. Operating income decreased to $20.0 million from the prior year quarter, due to higher amortization of intangible assets and the change in fair value of contingent consideration from the Intelisys acquisition. Non-GAAP operating income increased 3% to $26.2 million, primarily from the addition of the Intelisys acquisition.
On a GAAP basis, net income for the quarter totaled $12.4 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, compared with net income of $14.0 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, for the prior year quarter. Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of fiscal year 2017 totaled $16.4 million, or $0.65 per diluted share.
Forecast for Next Quarter
For the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2017, ScanSource expects net sales to range from $860 million to $920 million, diluted earnings per share to range from $0.44 to $0.51 per share, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share to range from $0.64 to $0.71 per share. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share exclude amortization of intangible assets and change in fair value of contingent consideration.
ScanSource will present additional information about its financial results and outlook in a conference call with presentation slides today, May 9, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. (ET). A webcast of the call and accompanying presentation slides will be available for all interested parties and can be accessed at www.scansource.com (Investor Relations section).

Safe Harbor Statement
This press release, including the forecast for next quarter, contains “forward-looking” statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Any number of factors could cause actual results to differ materially from anticipated or forecasted results, including, but not limited to, changes in interest and exchange rates and regulatory regimes impacting our overseas operations, the failure of acquisitions to meet our expectations, the failure to manage and implement our organic growth strategy, credit risks involving our larger customers and vendors, termination of our relationship with key vendors or a significant modification of the terms under which we operate with a key vendor, the decline in demand for the products and services that we provide, reduced prices for the products and services that we provide due both to competitor and customer actions, and other factors set forth in the “Risk Factors” contained in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2016, and subsequent reports on Form 10-Q, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Except as may be required by law, the Company expressly disclaims any obligation to update these forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this press release or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.
Non-GAAP Financial Information
In addition to disclosing results that are determined in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), the Company also discloses certain non-GAAP financial measures, which are summarized below. Non-GAAP financial measures are used to understand and evaluate performance, including comparisons from period to period. Non-GAAP results exclude amortization of intangible assets related to acquisitions, change in fair value of contingent consideration, acquisition costs and other non-GAAP adjustments.
Net sales on a constant currency basis, excluding acquisitions: The Company discloses the percentage change in net sales excluding the translation impact from changes in foreign currency exchange rates between reporting periods and excluding the net sales from acquisitions prior to the first full year from the acquisition date. This measure enhances the comparability between periods to help analyze underlying trends on an organic basis.
Non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP EPS: To evaluate current period performance on a more consistent basis with prior periods, the Company discloses non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share. Non-GAAP results exclude amortization of intangible assets related to acquisitions, change in the fair value of contingent consideration, acquisition costs and other non-GAAP adjustments. Non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP EPS measures are useful in assessing and understanding the Company’s operating performance, especially when comparing results with previous periods or forecasting performance for future periods.
Return on invested capital (“ROIC”): Management uses ROIC as a performance measurement to assess efficiency in allocating capital under the Company’s control to generate returns. Management believes this metric balances the Company’s operating results with asset and liability management, is not impacted by capitalization decisions and correlates with shareholder value creation. In addition, it is easily computed, communicated and understood. ROIC also provides management a measure of the Company’s profitability on a basis more comparable to historical or future periods.
ROIC assists management in comparing the Company’s performance over various reporting periods on a consistent basis because it removes from operating results the impact of items that do not reflect core operating performance. Adjusted earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization (“Adjusted EBITDA”) excludes the change in fair value of contingent consideration, in addition to other non-GAAP adjustments. Management believes the calculation of ROIC provides useful information to investors and is an additional relevant comparison of the Company’s performance during the year. In addition, the Company’s Board of Directors uses ROIC in evaluating business and management performance. Certain management incentive compensation targets are set and measured relative to ROIC.
These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and the non-GAAP financial measures that the Company reports may not be comparable to similarly titled amounts reported by other companies. Analysis of results and outlook on a non-GAAP basis should be considered in addition to, and not in substitution for or as superior to, measurements of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of the Company’s non-GAAP financial information to GAAP is set forth in the Supplementary Information (Unaudited) below.
