“Our cash flow generation was strong again this quarter, bringing the total amount generated over the last twelve months to more than $630 million or nearly double our targeted conversion rate,” said Paul J. Reilly, executive vice president, finance and operations and chief financial officer. “Return on invested capital remains an important metric for us, and we again generated returns in excess of our weighted average cost of capital.”Global components third-quarter sales of $3.37 billion decreased 8 percent year over 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. Sales in the Asia Pacific region increased 10 percent year over year, driven by the core business and a rebound in the company’s Ultra Source business. In the Americas sales declined 1 percent year over year due to a weaker overall market as well as customer cautiousness. European sales were down 4 percent year over year in local currency as the macroeconomic environment continues to impact the region.
