Stocks in this article: ARW

Excluding certain items in both the first nine months of 2012 and 2011 as described in the non-GAAP earnings reconciliation found below, net income would have been $356.0 million, or $3.18 per share on a diluted basis, for the first nine months of 2012 compared with $444.1 million, or $3.81 per share on a diluted basis, for the first nine months of 2011.

GUIDANCE

“Looking ahead, we believe that total fourth-quarter sales will be between $5.1 and $5.5 billion, with global components sales between $3.0 and $3.2 billion and global enterprise computing solutions sales between $2.1 and $2.3 billion. Earnings per share, on a diluted basis, excluding any charges, are expected to be in the range of $1.01 to $1.13. Our guidance assumes that average diluted shares outstanding are 107.3 million and the average Euro to USD exchange rate for the fourth quarter is 1.29 to 1,” said Mr. Reilly.

Please refer to the CFO commentary as a supplement to the company’s earnings release, which can be found at www.arrow.com/investor.

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.
