Arrow Electronics Reports Fourth-Quarter Non-GAAP Earnings Per Share Of $1.22

Arrow Electronics, Inc. (NYSE:ARW) today reported fourth-quarter 2012 net income of $174.7 million, or $1.62 per share on a diluted basis, compared with net income of $174.1 million, or $1.53 per share on a diluted basis in the fourth quarter of 2011. Excluding certain items in both the fourth quarters of 2012 and 2011 as described in the non-GAAP earnings reconciliation table found below, net income of $132.4 million, or $1.22 per share on a diluted basis, in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared with net income of $157.3 million, or $1.38 per share on a diluted basis, in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Fourth-quarter sales of $5.40 billion declined 1 percent from sales of $5.44 billion in the prior year. Pro forma for acquisitions and excluding the impact of foreign currency, sales declined 3 percent year over year.

“We delivered strong results in the fourth quarter, with non-GAAP earnings per share of $1.22 well ahead of our expectations, and strong cash flow from operations. Our ECS business performed especially well with sales up 11 percent over last year’s fourth quarter,” said Michael J. Long, chairman, president, and chief executive officer. “We had an excellent year, balancing our short-term initiatives and our long-term strategic priorities.”

Global components fourth-quarter sales of $3.19 billion decreased 7 percent year over year. Pro forma for acquisitions and excluding the impact of foreign currency, sales declined 9 percent year over year. Sales in the Asia-Pacific region increased 7 percent year over year, driven by strong growth in China and the ASEAN region. In the Americas, sales declined 6 percent year over year due to ongoing market weakness amid economic uncertainty. European sales were down 20 percent year over year in local currency, reflecting a weakening in the Euro Zone economies during the quarter and a prospective change in the accounting for revenue related to certain fulfillment contracts.
