"We had a strong finish to fiscal year 2014 with sales and EPS above our expectations," said Mike Baur, CEO, ScanSource, Inc. "Our employees worldwide delivered excellent operating results for both of our business segments for the year."

For the quarter ended June 30, 2014, net sales increased 6.4% to $758.1 million, compared with $712.7 million for the prior year quarter. The translation impact of foreign currencies had minimal impact on the increase in net sales.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2013, the results included pre-tax, non-cash impairment charges of $28.2 million related to our former Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP software project and $20.6 million of goodwill impairment. Adjusted operating income decreased 12.1% to $24.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 from $28.4 million for the prior year quarter. Adjusted net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 decreased to $17.3 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, compared with adjusted net income of $19.9 million, or $0.71 per diluted share, for the prior year quarter.

On a GAAP basis, net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 totaled $27.1 million, or $0.94 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $13.3 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, for the prior year quarter.

For the year ended June 30, 2014, net sales increased 1.3% to $2.9 billion. Adjusted operating income increased 4.3% to $106.3 million for the year ended June 30, 2014 from $101.9 million for the prior year. Adjusted net income for the year ended June 30, 2014 increased to $72.0 million, or $2.52 per diluted share, compared with adjusted net income of $69.3 million, or $2.47 per diluted share, for the prior year.

On a GAAP basis, net income for the year ended June 30, 2014 totaled $81.8 million, or $2.86 per diluted share, compared with net income of $34.7 million, or $1.24 per diluted share, for the prior year.

Share Repurchase Authorization

The Company also announced a $120 million authorization by its Board of Directors to repurchase shares of the Company’s common stock over three years. Repurchases may be made in the open market or through privately negotiated transactions, subject to market and business conditions, legal requirements, and other factors. ScanSource may enter into Rule 10b5-1 plans to facilitate repurchases. This share repurchase authorization does not obligate ScanSource to acquire any particular amount of common stock, and it may be suspended at any time at the Company’s discretion.

The Company expects to fund share repurchases through cash on hand and cash generated from its operations. ScanSource had approximately 28.5 million shares of common stock outstanding as of June 30, 2014.

Forecast for Next Quarter

The Company announced its current expectations for the first quarter fiscal year 2015. Excluding acquisitions and acquisition costs, ScanSource expects net sales for the quarter ending September 30, 2014 to range from $750 million to $770 million and diluted earnings per share to range from $0.59 to $0.61 per share.

Safe Harbor Statement

This press release contains comments that are “forward-looking” statements that involve risks and uncertainties; these statements are subject to the safe harbor created by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Any number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from anticipated or forecasted results, including, but not limited to, expanded international operations that expose the Company to greater risks than its operations in domestic markets; risks in connection with our growth which includes strategic acquisitions; costs and delays in connection with the Company's new ERP system; the ability to forecast volatility in earnings resulting from the quarterly revaluation of the Company's earnout obligation to the sellers of CDC; risks associated with consolidation of the Company's vendors; risks in connection with compliance with laws and regulations governing the Company's international business; macroeconomic circumstances that could impact the business, such as currency fluctuations, credit market conditions, and an economic downturn; the timing and amount of any share repurchases; the exercise of discretion by the Company to make any repurchase or continue the share repurchase authorization; and changes to the source of funds for any repurchases. For more information concerning factors that could cause actual results to differ from anticipated results, see the Company's annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2013 and the Company's quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, 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, including net sales excluding the translation impact of foreign currencies, adjusted net income and adjusted EPS, and return on invested capital ("ROIC"). Non-GAAP financial measures are used to better understand and evaluate performance, including comparisons from period to period, as described below.

Net sales excluding the translation impact of foreign currencies: The Company discusses the percentage change in net sales excluding the translation impact from changes in foreign currency exchange rates between reporting periods. This measure enhances comparability between periods to help analyze underlying trends.

Adjusted net income and adjusted EPS: To evaluate current period performance on a clearer and more consistent basis with prior periods, the Company discloses adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share. Results for the quarter and year ended June 30, 2014 exclude a legal recovery, net of attorney fees. Results for the quarter and year ended June 30, 2013 exclude ERP and goodwill impairment charges and costs associated with tax compliance and personnel replacement in the Company's Belgian office. Management believes that these historical items are outside of the Company's normal operating income and expenses. Adjusted net income and adjusted EPS are useful in better 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 is considered to have a strong correlation 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. 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. In addition, the Company's Board of Directors uses ROIC in evaluating business and management performance. Certain management incentive compensation targets are set and measured relative to ROIC.

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 following Supplementary Information tables.
