“For the quarter, we are pleased to deliver 3.5% year-over-year sales growth,” said Mike Baur, Chairman and CEO, ScanSource, Inc.“With our acquisition of intY, we added strategic SaaS capabilities to meet strong customer demand for software. We became a Microsoft cloud solution provider, which allows our channel partners access to Office 365, Azure, and Teams.”

Quarterly Results

Net sales for the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 increased 3.5% year-over-year to $1.0 billion, driven primarily by growth across key technologies in North America. Operating income for the first quarter decreased to $18.6 million year-over-year and non-GAAP operating income decreased to $27.5 million from the prior-year quarter, primarily from investments in our business for future growth.

On a GAAP basis, net income for the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 totaled $11.5 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, compared with net income of $14.3 million, or $0.56 per diluted share, for the prior-year quarter. GAAP diluted EPS included a higher than expected expense for the change in fair value of contingent consideration for Intelisys as a result of better than expected actual results. Non-GAAP net income totaled $18.5 million, or $0.72 per diluted share, compared to $22.9 million, or $0.89 per diluted share, for the prior-year quarter. Non-GAAP diluted EPS was near the midpoint of the forecast range.

Acquisition of intY

On July 1, 2019, ScanSource announced and closed the acquisition of intY and its award-winning CASCADE cloud services distribution platform. As an additional element of ScanSource’s cloud and digital strategy, intY’s CASCADE solution provides ScanSource channel partners with another route-to-market to enable key strategic cloud services, including Microsoft, Symantec, and Acronis.

Plan to Divest Certain Businesses Outside of US, Canada and Brazil

On August 20, 2019, ScanSource announced plans to divest its physical products distribution businesses outside of the United States, Canada and Brazil. ScanSource will continue to operate and invest in its digital distribution business in these geographies. These plans are part of a strategic portfolio repositioning to align investments with higher-growth, higher-margin businesses. During the quarter, the Company began a process to market and sell the Planned Divestitures. There can be no assurance that this sale process will result in a transaction or regarding the timing of any transaction. The Planned Divestitures, comprised of physical product businesses in Europe, UK, Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Peru and the Miami-based export operations, had net sales of $156 million for the first quarter fiscal year 2020 and at September 30, 2019 had working capital of $180 million.

Forecast for Next Quarter

For the second quarter of fiscal year 2020, ScanSource expects GAAP net sales to range from $1.03 billion to $1.09 billion and non-GAAP net sales excluding the Planned Divestitures to range from $880 million to $940 million.  For the second quarter of fiscal year 2020, ScanSource expects diluted earnings per share to range from $0.54 to $0.59 and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share to range from $0.80 to $0.85. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share exclude amortization of intangible assets related to acquisitions, change in fair value of contingent consideration, the impact of Planned Divestitures and other non-GAAP items.

Safe Harbor Statement

This press release contains “forward-looking” statements, including the forecast of sales and earnings per share for next quarter and the Planned Divestitures, 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 the Company's international operations, the impact of tax reform laws, the failure of acquisitions to meet the Company's expectations, the failure to manage and implement the Company's organic growth strategy, credit risks involving the Company's larger customers and vendors, termination of the Company's relationship with key vendors or a significant modification of the terms under which it operates with a key vendor, the decline in demand for the products and services that the Company provides, reduced prices for the products and services that the Company provides due both to competitor and customer action, the Company's ability to find a buyer for the Planned Divestitures on acceptable terms or to otherwise dispose of the operations, changes in the Company's operating strategy and other factors set forth in the "Risk Factors" contained in the Company's annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2019, 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, restructuring costs and other non-GAAP adjustments.

Net sales on a constant currency basis, excluding Planned Divestitures and acquisitions ("organic sales"):  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 Planned Divestitures, as well as 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.

Income Statement Non-GAAP Metrics: To evaluate current period performance on a more consistent basis with prior periods, the Company discloses non-GAAP net sales, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP other expense, net, non-GAAP pre-tax income, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share (non-GAAP diluted "EPS"). Non-GAAP results exclude amortization of intangible assets related to acquisitions, changes in fair value of contingent consideration, acquisition and divestiture costs, impact of Planned Divestitures and other non-GAAP adjustments.  Non-GAAP metrics 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. ROIC is calculated as adjusted EBITDA over invested capital.  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. Invested capital is defined as average equity plus average daily funded interest-bearing debt for the period. 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.

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.
