Quarterly Results

Net sales for the third quarter of fiscal year 2024 totaled $752.6 million, down 15.0% year-over-year. Specialty Technology Solutions net sales for the third quarter decreased 14.5% year-over-year to $483.7 million from softer demand across technologies within the segment. Modern Communications & Cloud net sales for the third quarter decreased 15.9% year-over-year to $268.9 million from lower sales volumes in communications hardware and Cisco products. Net billings for Intelisys increased to approximately $2.68 billion annualized, and Intelisys net sales for the third quarter increased 4.0%.

Gross profit for the third quarter of fiscal year 2024 decreased 15.5% year-over-year to $94.5 million with a gross profit margin of 12.55% versus 12.62% in the prior-year quarter and 11.39% in the second quarter of fiscal year 2024. The gross profit margin reflects a higher percentage of Intelisys revenue in our overall revenue mix, which is recorded on a net basis and therefore contributes to higher gross profit margin.

For the third quarter of fiscal year 2024, operating income was $17.5 million compared to $34.3 million in the prior-year quarter. Third quarter fiscal year 2024 non-GAAP operating income decreased to $25.3 million down from $38.4 million for the prior-year quarter.

On a GAAP basis, net income for the third quarter of fiscal year 2024 totaled $12.8 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, compared to net income of $21.2 million, or $0.83 per diluted share, for the prior-year quarter. Third quarter fiscal year 2024 non-GAAP net income totaled $17.5 million, or $0.69 per diluted share, down from $24.3 million, or $0.96 per diluted share, for the prior-year quarter. Interest expense for the quarter decreased to $2.0 million, down from $5.7 million for the prior-year quarter, reflecting lower borrowings.

On a non-GAAP basis, adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of fiscal year 2024 decreased 27.5% to $33.1 million, or 4.40% of net sales, compared to $45.7 million, or 5.16% of net sales, for the prior-year quarter.

ScanSource generated $316.9 million of operating cash flow and $309.6 million of free cash flow (non-GAAP) in the first nine months of fiscal year 2024.

Updated Annual Financial Outlook for Fiscal Year 2024

ScanSource updates its expectations for the full fiscal year ending June 30, 2024 and replaces previously provided guidance:

FY24 Annual Outlook

Prior FY24 Annual Outlook

Net sales

At least $3.3 billion

At least $3.5 billion

Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP)

At least $140 million

At least $155 million

Free cash flow (non-GAAP)

At least $275 million

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure, which excludes estimates for amortization of intangible assets, depreciation expense, and non-cash shared-based compensation expense. ScanSource’s outlook does not include the potential impact of any business combinations, asset acquisitions, divestitures, strategic investments, or other significant transactions that may be completed after the date hereof. These statements are forward-looking, and actual results may differ materially.

Share Repurchase Authorization

ScanSource announced a new $100 million authorization by its Board of Directors to purchase shares of the Company's common stock. This supplements the existing authorization of which approximately $45 million remained outstanding as of March 31, 2024.

Repurchases may be made at management's discretion through open market or privately negotiated transactions, including pursuant to one or more Rule 10b5-1 trading plans to facilitate. This share repurchase authorization does not obligate ScanSource to purchase any particular amount of common stock, and it may be suspended at any time at the Company's discretion. The authorization does not have any time limit.

Webcast Details and Earnings Infographic

At approximately 8:45 a.m. ET today, an Earnings Infographic, as a supplement to this press release and the earnings conference call, will be available on ScanSource's website, www.scansource.com (Investor Relations section). ScanSource will present additional information about its financial results and business in a conference call today, May 7, 2024, at 10:30 a.m. ET.

Safe Harbor Statement

This press release contains "forward-looking" statements, including ScanSource's FY24 outlook, which 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, the following factors, which are neither presented in order of importance nor weighted: macroeconomic conditions, including potential prolonged economic weakness, inflation, the failure to manage and implement ScanSource's organic growth strategy, credit risks involving ScanSource's larger customers and suppliers, changes in interest and exchange rates and regulatory regimes impacting ScanSource's international operations, economic weakness and inflation, risk to the business from a cyberattack, a failure of IT systems, failure to hire and retain quality employees, loss of ScanSource's major customers, relationships with key suppliers and customers or a termination or a modification of the terms under which it operates with these key suppliers, changes in ScanSource's operating strategy, and other factors set forth in the "Risk Factors" contained in ScanSource's annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2023. Except as may be required by law, ScanSource 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"), ScanSource 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, acquisition and divestiture costs, gain on sale of business, restructuring costs and other non-GAAP adjustments.

Net sales on a constant currency basis excluding acquisitions and divestitures to calculate organic growth ("non-GAAP net sales"): ScanSource 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 and divestitures prior to the first full year from the transaction date. This measure enhances the comparability between periods to help analyze underlying trends on an organic basis.

Additional Non-GAAP Metrics: To evaluate current period performance on a more consistent basis with prior periods, ScanSource discloses non-GAAP SG&A expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating income margin, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share (non-GAAP diluted EPS). Non-GAAP results exclude amortization of intangible assets related to acquisitions, acquisition and divestiture costs, gain on sale of business, restructuring costs, and other non-GAAP adjustments. These year-over-year metrics include the translation impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Non-GAAP metrics are useful in assessing and understanding ScanSource's operating performance, especially when comparing results with previous periods or forecasting performance for future periods.

Adjusted earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, and amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA"): Adjusted EBITDA starts with net income and adds back interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation expense, amortization of intangible assets, changes in fair value of contingent considerations, and other non-GAAP adjustments, including acquisition and divestiture costs, gain on sale of business, restructuring costs, cyberattack restoration costs, tax recovery, and non-cash share-based compensation expense. Since Adjusted EBITDA excludes some non-cash costs of investing in ScanSource’s business and people, management believes that Adjusted EBITDA shows the profitability from the business operations more clearly. The presentation for Adjusted EBITDA for all periods presented has been recast to reflect this change to enhance comparability between periods. The Adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net sales.

Adjusted return on invested capital ("Adjusted ROIC"): Adjusted ROIC assists management in comparing ScanSource'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 Adjusted ROIC provides useful information to investors and is an additional relevant comparison of its performance. Adjusted ROIC is calculated as Adjusted EBITDA over invested capital. Invested capital is defined as average equity plus average daily funded interest-bearing debt for the period. Management believes the calculation of Adjusted ROIC provides useful information to investors and is an additional relevant comparison of ScanSource's performance during the year.

Free cash flow: ScanSource presents free cash flow as it is a measure used by management to measure our business. We believe this measure provides more information regarding liquidity and capital resources. Free cash flow is defined as cash flows from operating activities less capital expenditures.

These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and the non-GAAP financial measures that ScanSource 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 ScanSource's non-GAAP financial information to GAAP is set forth in the Supplementary Information (Unaudited) below.
