“Our strong fourth-quarter performance completes a historic and transformational year for Tech Data,” said Robert M. Dutkowsky, chairman and chief executive officer. “During fiscal 2018, we closed the acquisition of Avnet’s Technology Solutions business and introduced the new Tech Data – a global company that is redefining technology distribution with a unique end-to-end product and services portfolio and highly specialized skills. Fiscal 2018 was also a year of significant strategic and financial progress, posting the highest sales, non-GAAP earnings and cash flow from operations in our history and revealing the enhanced earnings power and strong cash flow profile of the new Tech Data. This strong financial performance enabled us to pay down $850 million of debt and attain our post-acquisition target leverage ratio well ahead of our 18 to 24-month plan. Our employees, customers and vendor partners are excited about the value the new Tech Data brings to the market today, as well as the future promise of our company.”
