Financial Highlights for the Third Quarter Ended October 31, 2017:

  • Net sales were $9.1 billion, an increase of 41 percent compared to the prior-year quarter.

    • Americas: Net sales were $4.0 billion (44 percent of worldwide net sales), an increase of 53 percent compared to the prior-year quarter. The increase in net sales is primarily attributed to the addition of Technology Solutions. On a constant currency basis, net sales increased 52 percent.

“We are pleased to report Q3 results that were in line with our expectations and that continue to highlight the enhanced earnings power and cash flow profile of the new Tech Data,” said Robert M. Dutkowsky, chairman and chief executive officer. “For the first time in Tech Data’s history, quarterly sales surpassed $9 billion, and through pricing discipline and strong cost controls, we delivered solid non-GAAP earnings per share. In addition, we generated $70 million of cash from operations, paid down $350 million of our debt, reflecting our strong commitment to deleverage the company, and earned an adjusted return on invested capital for the trailing twelve-month period well in excess of our weighted average cost of capital. We continue on our path to building the IT distributor of the future, one with breadth, specialized skills and extensive capabilities to help our customers and vendor partners capitalize on growth opportunities across the computing continuum.”
