Arrow Electronics, Inc. (NYSE:ARW) today reported first-quarter 2012 net income of $113.6 million ($1.01 and $1.00 per share on a basic and diluted basis, respectively) on sales of $4.89 billion, compared with net income of $136.3 million ($1.18 and $1.16 per share on a basic and diluted basis, respectively) on sales of $5.22 billion in the first quarter of 2011. Cash flow from operations for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 was $250 million.

The company's results for the first quarters of 2012 and 2011 include a number of items that impact their comparability. A complete reconciliation of these items is provided under the heading “Certain Non-GAAP Financial Information.” Excluding those items, on a non-GAAP basis, net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2012, would have been $119.8 million ($1.07 and $1.05 per share on a basic and diluted basis, respectively) and net income for the quarter ended April 2, 2011, would have been $146.0 million ($1.27 and $1.24 per share on a basic and diluted basis, respectively).

“We executed well in the first quarter with sales and earnings per share in line with our expectations. Cash flow generation was a bright spot in the first quarter, as we generated $250 million in cash flow from operations, with contributions from both business segments,” said Michael J. Long, chairman, president, and chief executive officer.

“Our return on capital continues to be strong with return on invested capital well in excess of our weighted average cost of capital,” said Paul J. Reilly, executive vice president, finance and operations and chief financial officer. “We continue to invest in businesses that will provide above market growth opportunities over the long-term.”

Global enterprise computing solutions (“ECS”) first-quarter sales of $1.54 billion increased 15 percent year over year. “We had very impressive results in the first quarter with sales well above normal seasonality, especially in our North American value-added distribution business. Globally, we saw robust product line performance in storage, software, and services, which each grew in excess of 20% year over year,” said Mr. Long.

Global components first-quarter sales of $3.35 billion decreased 14 percent year over year. “The Americas region performed well while weaker macroeconomic conditions in Asia and Europe have had a negative impact on our results. Our global book-to-bill of 1.04 to 1 is at its highest level in six quarters with sequential increases seen in all regions. Our global teams remain committed to driving increased market share in all regions while providing the highest possible level of service to our customers,” Mr. Long said.

The company's results for the first quarters of 2012 and 2011 include the items outlined below that impact their comparability:

  • restructuring, integration, and other charges of $8.2 million ($6.1 million net of related taxes or $.05 per share on both a basic and diluted basis) in the first quarter of 2012 and $9.6 million ($7.2 million net of related taxes or $.06 per share on a both basic and diluted basis) in the first quarter of 2011;
  • a charge of $5.9 million ($3.6 million net of related taxes or $.03 per share on both a basic and diluted basis) in connection with the settlement of a legal matter in 2011; and
  • a gain on bargain purchase of $1.8 million ($1.1 million net of related taxes or $.01 per share on both a basic and diluted basis).

GUIDANCE

“Looking ahead, we believe that total second-quarter sales will be between $5.04 and $5.44 billion, with global components sales between $3.37 and $3.57 billion and global enterprise computing solutions sales between $1.67 and $1.87 billion. Earnings per share, on a diluted basis, excluding any charges, are expected to be in the range of $1.08 to $1.20. Our guidance assumes that the average Euro to USD exchange rate for the first quarter is 1.31 to 1,” said Mr. Reilly.

Arrow serves as a supply channel partner for more than 120,000 original equipment manufacturers, contract manufacturers and commercial customers through a global network of more than 390 locations in 53 countries.

Certain Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to disclosing results that are determined in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), the company provides certain non-GAAP financial information relating to operating income, net income attributable to shareholders and net income per basic and diluted share, each as adjusted for certain charges, credits and losses that the company believes impact the comparability of its results of operations. These charges, credits and losses arise out of the company’s efficiency enhancement initiatives, acquisitions, and settlement of certain legal matters. A reconciliation of the company’s non-GAAP financial information to GAAP is set forth in the table below.

The company believes that such non-GAAP financial information is useful to investors to assist in assessing and understanding the company’s operating performance and underlying trends in the company’s business because management considers the charges, credits and losses referred to above to be outside the company’s core operating results. This non-GAAP financial information is among the primary indicators management uses as a basis for evaluating the company’s financial and operating performance. In addition, the company’s Board of Directors may use this non-GAAP financial information in evaluating management performance and setting management compensation.

The presentation of this additional non-GAAP financial information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or alternative to, operating income, net income and net income per basic and diluted share determined in accordance with GAAP. Analysis of results and outlook on a non-GAAP basis should be used as a complement to, and in conjunction with, data presented in accordance with GAAP.
