TD SYNNEX SNX reported mixed results for the second quarter of fiscal 2022, wherein earnings surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate but revenues missed the same. However, both the metrics marked strong growth on a year-over-year basis.
The company’s fiscal second-quarter non-GAAP earnings of $2.72 per share topped the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 4.2% and increased 30.1% year over year. Revenues jumped 160.7% year over year to $15.27 billion, mainly due to the inclusion of revenues from the last year’s merger of Tech Data Corporation. However, the top line fell short of the consensus mark of $15.34 billion.
TD SYNNEX was formerly known as SYNNEX Corporation, but the company changed its name after the acquisition of Tech Data Corporation on Sep 1, 2021.
The company continues to witness the strong demand for its technology products and services. In addition, a steady IT spending environment, backed by rapid digital transformations, was an upside. However, the prevailing industry-wide supply-chain constraints negatively impacted the top line.
