Arrow Electronics Reports Third-Quarter Results

Arrow Electronics, Inc. (NYSE:ARW) today reported third-quarter 2012 net income of $103.6 million, or $.94 per share on a diluted basis, compared with net income of $132.2 million, or $1.15 per share on a diluted basis in 2011. Excluding certain items in both 2012 and 2011 as described in the non-GAAP earnings reconciliation table found below, net income of $112.2 million, or $1.02 per share on a diluted basis, in the third quarter of 2012 compared with net income of $138.3 million, or $1.20 per share on a diluted basis, in the third quarter of 2011.

In the third quarter of 2012, the company prospectively revised its presentation of sales related to certain fulfillment contracts to present these revenues on an agency basis as net fees, as compared to presenting gross sales and costs of sales in prior periods. On a gross basis, these contracts would have contributed approximately $176.5 million, or 3.4 percent, to the company's sales in the third quarter of 2012. Within the company’s statement of operations, this revised presentation had no impact on gross profit dollars, operating income dollars, net income dollars, and earnings per share for any periods reported. It also had no impact on the company’s consolidated balance sheet or statement of cash flows.

Third-quarter sales of $4.96 billion declined 4 percent from sales of $5.19 billion in the prior year. Pro forma for acquisitions and excluding the impact of both foreign currency and the aforementioned change in revenue presentation, sales were flat year over year. Third-quarter operating income as a percentage of sales declined 70 basis points year over year. Pro forma for acquisitions and the aforementioned change in revenue presentation, operating income as a percentage of sales decreased 90 basis points year over year.

“The third quarter again demonstrated our strong execution in what continues to be a challenging global macroeconomic environment. We reported third-quarter revenue of $5.0 billion and EPS of $1.02, both in line with our expectations,” said Michael J. Long, chairman, president, and chief executive officer. “Our fundamentals are strong and we continue to focus on operating the business for the long-term health of Arrow.”
