Ingram's Management Present At Bank Of America Merrill Lynch Global Technology Conference (Transcript)

A little bit different business in the sense of little bit lower margin at this point in time, the gross margin. But the operating margin is very well. It’s very nice. It’s kind of around the company average and the return on capital is nice. So it’s a good business and we have to invest in this area of business basically so we can get the critical mass and then start tying services around there, so we think about refurbishment services.

We got activations; we continue to tie around additional services around the mobility space and tie it overall with the system convergence. So mobility obviously driving convergence between consumer and enterprise and we basically and definitely have to play. So it’s a good business and we’re focusing on expediting the overall execution in that in 2012.

Ingram Micro logistics, our fee for service business, again its an area strategically where we over the last probably 13, 14 months really worked on revamping some of the contracts and driving out more efficiencies in the process and really working on obtaining new businesses and its really operating well. But our view is drive growth and drive authorization concurrently to really drive success. Q1 was a very nice quarter for us and we expect that continue to grow with our nice pipeline of potential new business going forward.

And lastly, with execution on developing our cloud infrastructure and cloud exchange business, so as many of the people know that cloud value proposition is very similar to a hard goods or physical distribution value proposition. In the cloud there is going to be both on-premise technology; there is going to be cloud technology and support that’s going to be people that integrated that existing ERP systems or systems with cloud software and hardware computing power.
