We are well-equipped to navigate the macroeconomic environment in 2023 and expect to continue to perform better than the overall IT industry.”

Fiscal 2022 Highlights

  • Revenue was $62.3 billion, up 97.2% from the prior fiscal year, primarily due to the impact of the completion of the merger with Tech Data on September 1, 2021.
  • Operating income was $1.05 billion, compared to $623 million in the prior fiscal year. Non-GAAP operating income was $1.72 billion in the current year compared to $902 million in the prior fiscal year. Operating margin was 1.7%, compared to 2.0% in the prior fiscal year. Non-GAAP operating margin was 2.8% in the current year, compared to 2.9% in the prior fiscal year.
  • Diluted EPS was $6.77, compared to $6.24 in the prior fiscal year, an increase of 8.5%. Non-GAAP Diluted EPS was $11.94, compared to $9.40 in the prior fiscal year, an increase of 27%. Non-GAAP EPS for the fiscal year was $0.74 above the high end of our original guidance range provided in January 2022 and $0.29 above the high end of the most recent guidance range provided in September 2022, despite headwinds from interest expense and Euro devaluation.
  • Cash used in operations was $50 million for the year, due to temporary supply chain constraints as well as inventory investments to support growth in the business that we expect to begin to normalize in fiscal 2023.
  • Returned $240 million to shareholders via repurchases of our common stock of $125 million and dividends of $115 million.

The following statements are based on TD SYNNEX’s current expectations for the fiscal 2023 first quarter.

These statements are forward-looking and actual results may differ materially.

First Quarter Fiscal 2023 Outlook

  • Revenue is expected to be in the range of $15.2 billion to $16.2 billion.
  • Net income is expected to be in the range of $139 million to $178 million and on a non-GAAP basis, net income is expected to be in the range of $248 million to $287 million.
  • Diluted earnings per share is expected to be in the range of $1.46 to $1.86 and on a non-GAAP basis, diluted earnings per share is expected to be in the range of $2.60 to $3.00, based on estimated outstanding diluted weighted average shares of 94.8 million.
  • The outlook for the fiscal 2023 first quarter reflects the impact of year-over-year foreign exchange headwinds on revenue of approximately $500 million and interest rate movements of $33 million.

(1)Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to the financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, TD SYNNEX refers to revenues on a constant currency basis which adjusts for the translation effect of foreign currencies so that certain financial results can be viewed without the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, thereby facilitating period-to-period comparisons of our performance. Financial results adjusted for constant currency are calculated by translating current period activity using the comparable prior year periods’ currency conversion rate. TD SYNNEX uses non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin which exclude purchase accounting adjustments. TD SYNNEX also uses adjusted selling, general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, which are non-GAAP financial measures that exclude acquisition, integration and restructuring costs, the amortization of intangible assets, share-based compensation expense, purchase accounting adjustments, legal settlements and other litigation, net and the related tax effects thereon. Further, the Company uses adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“Adjusted EBITDA”) which excludes other income (expense), net, acquisition, integration and restructuring costs, share-based compensation expense and purchase accounting adjustments. In prior periods, TD SYNNEX has excluded other items relevant to those periods for purposes of its non-GAAP financial measures.

Acquisition, integration and restructuring costs typically consist of acquisition, integration, restructuring and divestiture related costs and are expensed as incurred. These expenses primarily represent professional services costs for legal, banking, consulting and advisory services, severance and other personnel-related costs, share-based compensation expense and debt extinguishment fees. From time to time, this category may also include transaction-related gains/losses on divestitures/spin-off of businesses, costs related to long-lived assets including impairment charges and accelerated depreciation and amortization expense due to changes in asset useful lives, as well as various other costs associated with the acquisition or divestiture.

TD SYNNEX’s acquisition activities have resulted in the recognition of finite-lived intangible assets which consist primarily of customer relationships and lists and vendor lists. Finite-lived intangible assets are amortized over their estimated useful lives and are tested for impairment when events indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable. The amortization of intangible assets is reflected in the Company’s Statements of Operations. Although intangible assets contribute to the Company’s revenue generation, the amortization of intangible assets does not directly relate to the sale of the Company’s products. Additionally, intangible asset amortization expense typically fluctuates based on the size and timing of the Company’s acquisition activity. Accordingly, the Company believes excluding the amortization of intangible assets, along with the other non-GAAP adjustments, which neither relate to the ordinary course of the Company’s business nor reflect the Company’s underlying business performance, enhances the Company’s and investors’ ability to compare the Company’s past financial performance with its current performance and to analyze underlying business performance and trends. Intangible asset amortization excluded from the related non-GAAP financial measure represents the entire amount recorded within the Company’s GAAP financial statements, and the revenue generated by the associated intangible assets has not been excluded from the related non-GAAP financial measure. Intangible asset amortization is excluded from the related non-GAAP financial measure because the amortization, unlike the related revenue, is not affected by operations of any particular period unless an intangible asset becomes impaired or the estimated useful life of an intangible asset is revised.

Share-based compensation expense is a non-cash expense arising from the grant of equity awards to employees based on the estimated fair value of those awards. Although share-based compensation is an important aspect of the compensation of our employees, the fair value of the share-based awards may bear little resemblance to the actual value realized upon the vesting or future exercise of the related share-based awards and the expense can vary significantly between periods as a result of the timing of grants of new stock-based awards, including grants in connection with acquisitions. Given the variety and timing of awards and the subjective assumptions that are necessary when calculating share-based compensation expense, TD SYNNEX believes this additional information allows investors to make additional comparisons between our operating results from period to period.

Purchase accounting adjustments are primarily related to the impact of recognizing the acquired vendor and customer liabilities related to the merger with Tech Data at fair value. The Company expects the duration of these adjustments to benefit our non-GAAP operating income through a portion of fiscal 2023 based on historical settlement patterns with our vendors and in accordance with the timing defined in our policy for releasing vendor and customer liabilities we deem remote to be paid.

Legal settlements and other litigation, net includes a benefit recorded in other income (expense), net during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 resulting from a decrease in our accrual for a legal matter in France.

Trailing fiscal four quarters ROIC is defined as the last four quarters’ tax effected operating income divided by the average of the last five quarterly balances of borrowings and equity, net of cash. Adjusted ROIC is calculated by excluding the tax effected impact of non-GAAP adjustments from operating income and by excluding the cumulative tax effected impact of current and prior period non-GAAP adjustments on equity.

TD SYNNEX also uses free cash flow, which is cash flow from operating activities, reduced by purchases of property and equipment. TD SYNNEX uses free cash flow to conduct and evaluate its business because, although it is similar to cash flow from operations, TD SYNNEX believes it is an additional useful measure of cash flows since purchases of property and equipment are a necessary component of ongoing operations. Free cash flow reflects an additional way of viewing TD SYNNEX’s liquidity that, when viewed with its GAAP results, provides a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting its cash flows. Free cash flow has limitations as it does not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures. For example, free cash flow does not incorporate payments for business acquisitions. Therefore, TD SYNNEX believes it is important to view free cash flow as a complement to its entire Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.

TD SYNNEX management uses non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate the business, to establish operational goals, and in some cases for measuring performance for compensation purposes. These non-GAAP measures are intended to provide investors with an understanding of TD SYNNEX’s operational results and trends that more readily enable investors to analyze TD SYNNEX’s base financial and operating performance and to facilitate period-to-period comparisons and analysis of operational trends, as well as for planning and forecasting in future periods. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. As these non-GAAP financial measures are not calculated in accordance with GAAP, they may not necessarily be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the comparable GAAP measures, and should be read only in conjunction with TD SYNNEX’s Consolidated Financial Statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of TD SYNNEX’s GAAP to non-GAAP financial information is set forth in the supplemental tables at the end of this press release.
