Net sales for the fourth quarter ended January 31, 2012, were $7.1 billion, consistent with sales in the prior-year fourth quarter. The weakening of certain foreign currencies against the U.S. dollar, compared to the fourth quarter of the prior year, negatively impacted the year-over-year net sales comparison by approximately one percentage point. Sequentially, net sales for the fourth quarter ended January 31, 2012, increased eight percent over the third quarter. Weaker foreign currencies during the fourth quarter negatively impacted the sequential growth by approximately four percentage points.

Operating income for the fourth quarter was $83.8 million, or 1.18 percent of net sales. This compared to operating income of $117.8 million, or 1.65 percent of net sales in the prior-year fourth quarter. Fourth-quarter net income attributable to shareholders of Tech Data Corporation was $54.1 million, or $1.29 per diluted share compared to $77.3 million, or $1.63 per diluted share for the prior-year period based upon Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"). Results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 included a $28.3 million charge, or $0.46 per diluted share after-tax, for the loss on disposal of subsidiaries related to the company's decision to exit its operations in Brazil and Colombia ("loss on disposal of subsidiaries"). Excluding the loss on disposal of subsidiaries, non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 totaled $73.3 million, or $1.75 per diluted share.

"We completed the fiscal year on a good note, posting record annual sales and earnings per share, as well as return on invested capital well above our weighted average cost of capital," said Robert M. Dutkowsky, Tech Data Corporation's chief executive officer. "We are pleased with the solid performance delivered by both regions, despite a slowing overall IT market and challenging macro-economic environments in certain European countries. In the fourth quarter we took steps to further strengthen and better position the company for the future by exiting unprofitable markets, aligning our European cost structure to more closely match market conditions, investing in industry-leading initiatives and enhancing our capital structure. Tech Data's performance throughout fiscal 2012 demonstrates the strength of our operations and the flexibility of our business model to successfully navigate the ever-changing IT market landscape and deliver strong results for our shareholders. It is also a testament to the talent, hard work and dedication of our worldwide team."

Fourth-Quarter Financial Highlights

  • Net sales in the Americas (including North America and Latin America) were $2.74 billion, or 39 percent of worldwide net sales, representing a decrease of one percent over the prior-year fourth quarter. Net sales in Europe totaled $4.37 billion, or 61 percent of worldwide net sales, representing an increase of one percent (two percent increase on a euro basis) over the prior-year fourth quarter.
  • Gross margin for the fourth quarter was 5.27 percent, compared to 5.32 percent in the prior-year fourth quarter. The year-over-year decrease in gross margin was primarily attributable to competitive pricing conditions in certain markets during the quarter.
  • Selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A) were $291.1 million, or 4.09 percent of net sales, compared to $261.0 million, or 3.67 percent of net sales in the prior-year fourth quarter. The increase in SG&A expenses was primarily attributable to the loss on disposal of subsidiaries, as well as an increase in severance costs in Europe. Excluding the $28.3 million charge for the loss on disposal of subsidiaries, non-GAAP SG&A for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 was $262.8 million, or 3.70 percent of net sales.
  • Operating income in the Americas for the fourth quarter was $26.7 million, or 0.97 percent of net sales, compared to $48.6 million, or 1.75 percent of net sales in the prior-year fourth quarter. Excluding the $28.3 million charge for the loss on disposal of subsidiaries, non-GAAP operating income in the Americas for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 was $55.0 million, or 2.01 percent of net sales. In Europe, the company generated operating income of $59.8 million, or 1.37 percent of net sales, compared to operating income of $71.6 million, or 1.65 percent of net sales in the prior-year fourth quarter. The decrease is primarily attributable to year-over-year incremental severance costs of $11 million. Stock-based compensation expense is not included in the regional segment reporting results. This expense is presented as a separate line item in the company's segment reporting (see "Supplementary Information" table attached).
  • Historically, the company has presented certain book overdrafts, representing checks issued and wire transfers that have been initiated but have not been presented for payment to the banks, as accounts payable. Based on agreements with its banks in certain countries, the company determined that a significant portion of these book overdrafts are covered by rights of setoff in favor of the respective banks and therefore, the company has classified these amounts as reductions to cash and accounts payable as of January 31, 2012. Accordingly, the company has adjusted its financial statements for the prior year ended January 31, 2011 to be consistent with the current year presentation. The impact of this adjustment was a decrease of $76.2 million to cash and accounts payable as of January 31, 2011, and an increase to cash flows from operations of $57.5 million for the year ended January 31, 2011.  
  • Cash provided by operations totaled $108.0 million for the fourth quarter, and $503.4 million for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2012. Cash provided by operations during the first nine months of fiscal 2012 increased by $1.7 million due to the company's adjustment of prior period cash flows as a result of its accounting for book overdrafts, as discussed above.

Fiscal-Year Results

Net sales for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2012, were $26.5 billion, an increase of nine percent from $24.4 billion for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2011. The strengthening of certain foreign currencies against the U.S. dollar positively impacted the year-over-year fiscal year net sales comparison by approximately three percentage points. On a regional basis, net sales in the Americas represented 41 percent of worldwide net sales and increased three percent to $10.8 billion from $10.5 billion for the prior-year period. Europe represented 59 percent of worldwide net sales and increased 13 percent (8 percent on a euro basis) to $15.6 billion from $13.8 billion for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2011.

For the fiscal year ended January 31, 2012, the company recorded operating income of $327.9 million, or 1.24 percent of net sales, compared with operating income of $334.0 million, or 1.37 percent of net sales, in the prior-year period. Excluding the $28.3 million charge for the loss on disposal of subsidiaries, non-GAAP operating income for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2012 was $356.2 million, or 1.34 percent of net sales.

The company recorded net income attributable to shareholders of Tech Data Corporation of $206.4 million, or $4.66 per diluted share, for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2012. This compared to net income attributable to shareholders of Tech Data Corporation of $214.2 million, or $4.36 per diluted share, in the prior-year period. Excluding the $28.3 million charge for the loss on disposal of subsidiaries, non-GAAP net income attributable to shareholders of Tech Data Corporation for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2012 was $225.6 million, or $5.09 per diluted share.

Business Outlook

For the first quarter of fiscal year 13, taking into account the exit of Brazil and Colombia, the company anticipates flat sales in both regions, in local currencies. Throughout the remaining quarters, the company expects regional sales comparisons to range from slightly positive to slightly negative, resulting in flat sales for the fiscal year, in local currencies. However, the company believes its diverse product portfolio, proactive steps taken, and investments made, will support its operating margin goal of approximately 1.5 percent for the fiscal year.
