Commenting on the Company’s third quarter results, Frank Khulusi, Chairman, President and CEO of PC Mall, Inc. said, “I am pleased with our record third quarter performance. While continuing economic uncertainty makes it difficult to predict IT spending patterns, our team continues to work hard and execute well on our strategy, which includes both growth and investment. Our record third quarter revenue and gross profit, with growth of 9% and 16% respectively, is a result of continuing execution on the part of our sales organizations, along with an increasing mix of sales of services and solutions, something we have been driving towards for some time. In fact, we are very proud of our gross margin increase from 12.9% last Q3 to 13.7% in Q3 this year. In addition, our non-GAAP operating profit increased by 29%, demonstrating the operating leverage in our model. We continue to invest significant dollars in our IT upgrades and other systems improvements, and continue to selectively add headcount in our technical support and services businesses. In so doing, we believe we will be well positioned heading into 2012 and beyond.”
