“While we did not finish our fiscal year as strongly as we started, we delivered record net sales of $3.9 billion for fiscal year 2019,” said Mike Baur, Chairman and CEO, ScanSource, Inc. “In North America, we are executing on our strategic initiatives to offer technology solutions, services and recurring revenue as One ScanSource. Earlier today, we announced plans to divest of certain businesses outside of the United States, Canada and Brazil to align our investments with higher-growth, higher-margin businesses.”

Quarterly Results

Net sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2019 decreased 3% year-over-year to $960.8 million. Organic sales, which exclude the impact of foreign currency translation and recent acquisitions, decreased 2% year-over-year, primarily in the Worldwide Barcode, Security and Networking segment. Operating income increased 1% to $20.0 million year-over-year. Non-GAAP operating income decreased 4% to $29.4 million, primarily from lower sales volumes.

On a GAAP basis, net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2019 totaled $11.6 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, compared with net income of $10.4 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, for the prior-year quarter. Non-GAAP net income totaled $18.3 million, or $0.71 per diluted share, compared to $19.9 million, or $0.77 per diluted share, for the prior-year quarter.

Full-Year Results

For fiscal year 2019, net sales increased 1% to $3.9 billion. Organic sales for fiscal year 2019 increased 2% year-over-year,  driven by 9% sales growth in the Worldwide Communications and Services segment. Operating income increased 33% to $90.0 million, largely from decreased expense for the change in fair value of contingent consideration. Non-GAAP operating income increased 4% to $128.5 million, driven by higher gross profit and higher margins.

On a GAAP basis, net income for fiscal year 2019 totaled $57.6 million, or $2.24 per diluted share, compared to net income of $33.2 million, or $1.29 per diluted share, for the prior-year. Non-GAAP net income increased 8% to $86.4 million, or $3.36 per diluted share, compared to $79.8 million, or $3.11 per diluted share, for the prior-year.

Acquisition of intY

On July 1, 2019, ScanSource announced 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. Founded in 1997 and based in Bristol, UK, intY has 65 employees. The acquisition closed on July 1, 2019, and the terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

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

Earlier today, ScanSource announced plans to divest certain businesses outside of the United States, Canada and Brazil (the “Planned Divestitures”). ScanSource will continue to operate and invest in its digital distribution business in these geographies, including its recent acquisitions of intY, Canpango and Intelisys Global. These plans are part of a strategic portfolio repositioning to align investments with higher-growth, higher-margin businesses. 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 $623 million for fiscal year 2019 and at June 30, 2019 had working capital of $205 million.

Forecast for Next Quarter

ScanSource is providing the forecast for next quarter, excluding the Planned Divestitures. For the first quarter of fiscal year 2020, ScanSource expects GAAP net sales to range from $970 million to $1.03 billion and non-GAAP net sales excluding the Planned Divestitures to range from $830 million to $890 million.  For the first quarter of fiscal year 2020, ScanSource expects diluted earnings per share to range from $0.47 to $0.52 and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share to range from $0.70 to $0.75. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share exclude operating results for the Planned Divestitures, amortization of intangible assets related to acquisitions and change in fair value of contingent consideration.

Safe Harbor Statement

This press release contains “forward-looking” statements, including the forecast of sales and earnings per share for next quarter and plans to divest certain businesses outside of the US, Canada and Brazil, 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, 2018, 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 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 pre-tax income, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share: To evaluate current period performance on a more consistent basis with prior periods, the Company discloses non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP pre-tax income, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share (non-GAAP diluted "EPS"). These non-GAAP results exclude amortization of intangible assets related to acquisitions, change in the fair value of contingent consideration, acquisition costs, restructuring costs and other non-GAAP adjustments. Non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP pre-tax income, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP diluted 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. 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 and acquisition costs, 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.
