SYNNEX Corporation SNX delivered non-GAAP earnings of $2.86 per share for second-quarter fiscal 2019, which improved 20.2% from the year-ago quarter and also beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $2.71.
Moreover, revenues of $5.72 billion surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $5.53 billion and increased 17% year over year as well. Adjusted for foreign exchange, revenues rose 18% in the quarter.
Management noted that reasonable demand trends and IT spends coupled with a solid distribution channel drove results. Successful integration of the Convergys business is a key driver for the company. However, adverse foreign exchange fluctuations remain a concern.
SYNNEX’s Technology Solutions revenues were up 3.3% year over year to $4.6 billion. Gross-to-net revenues accounting induced a revenue headwind of $159 million. Gross revenues climbed nearly 7% on a year-over-year basis at constant currency, backed by solid demand across portfolio of products and services.
Management mentioned that its Hyve business also progressed well in the quarter. Profitability for Hyve improved too. By selling additional offerings to its main customers, SYNNEX improved its diversity quotient with the respective customer. Although improvement in mix is a positive, customer concentration remains a concern.
Concentrix revenues soared 136.3% from the prior-year quarter to $1.2 billion, driven by the Convergys acquisition closed last October.
