Business Comments

From the time of our last update in March, Concentrix has rapidly enabled additional work-from-home capabilities to support its client base needs and Technology Solutions has continued to support work-at-home, learn-at-home, delivery-to-home and many other customer requirements," said Dennis Polk, SYNNEX President and CEO. "The significant increase in work-from-home and ability to support clients by the Concentrix team are the main contributors to our improved outlook for the second quarter. While it's still difficult to fully assess the duration and severity of this health and economic crisis, our priority continues to be on the health and safety of our associates. I want to express my deepest gratitude to our dedicated associates globally, who are all working purposefully, methodically and safely to meet our commitments."

Cash and Liquidity Update

"We have maintained disciplined capital management throughout the pandemic and have increased our liquidity position to nearly $2 billion, without raising additional capital," said Marshall Witt, SYNNEX CFO. "We believe that our strong balance sheet will enhance our ability to successfully navigate through this challenging market backdrop."

The above information and comments are business updates for the second quarter fiscal year 2020 only, as it remains difficult to assess the Company performance beyond this period.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to the financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, SYNNEX also uses adjusted selling, general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, adjusted operating income before depreciation and amortization ("Adjusted OIBDA"), non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP diluted earnings (loss) per share, which are non-GAAP financial measures that exclude acquisition-related and integration expenses, restructuring costs, the amortization of intangible assets and the related tax effects thereon. The estimates of non-GAAP diluted earnings (loss) per share represented in this press release are inclusive of costs resulting from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic during the second quarter.

SYNNEX' acquisition activities have resulted in the recognition of intangible assets which consist primarily of customer relationships, vendor lists and technology. Definite-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 within each segment. 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 and the services performed for the Company's clients. 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.

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 SYNNEX' operational results and trends that more readily enable investors to analyze SYNNEX' 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 SYNNEX' consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of SYNNEX' GAAP to non-GAAP financial information is set forth in the supplemental information section at the end of this press release.
