"We are very pleased with our outstanding second quarter results and continued successful execution of our strategic plan," said Mike Baur, CEO, ScanSource, Inc. "Our strategic plan is focused on building end customer solutions and enabling our channel partners to deliver more value."

Quarterly Results

For the second quarter of fiscal year 2019, net sales increased 1% to $1,046.0 million, reflecting sales growth in North America and Brazil. Organic sales, which exclude the impact from foreign currency translation and recent acquisitions, grew 3.2% year-over-year. Operating income increased to $29.7 million, as the expense for the change in contingent consideration related to Network1 decreased. Non-GAAP operating income increased 6% to $36.7 million, driven by higher sales volumes and higher margins.

On a GAAP basis, net income for the second quarter of fiscal year 2019 totaled $20.0 million, or $0.78 per diluted share, compared with net income of $8.0 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, for the prior-year quarter. Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of fiscal year 2019 increased 10% to $25.4 million, or $0.99 per diluted share, compared to $23.0 million, or $0.90 per diluted share, for the prior-year quarter.

Forecast for Next Quarter

For the third quarter of fiscal year 2019, ScanSource expects net sales to range from $910 million to $970 million, diluted earnings per share to range from $0.48 to $0.54 per share and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share to range from $0.76 to $0.82 per share. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share exclude amortization of intangible assets related to acquisitions, change in fair value of contingent consideration 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, 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 provide due both to competitor and customer action, 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 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 and other non-GAAP adjustments. Non-GAAP operating 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.
