Synnex (SNX - Get Report) , a call-center operator and distributor of technology products, was rising 9% in trading Wednesday to $100.30 after sales of $5.72 billion rose 16.6% from a year earlier and beat analysts' forecasts.

Analysts had expected Synnex to post sales of $5.52 billion.

Synnex completed the acquisition of call center operator Convergys last year for $2.4 billion.

"We delivered strong results in our second quarter as both of our business segments exceeded expectations and set quarterly records," said Dennis Polk, Synnex president and CEO. "Our Concentrix business continued its momentum post the Convergys acquisition by delivering solid results, while executing ahead of schedule on our integration plan." 

Revenue in the Concentrix business was $1.2 billion, up 136.3% from a year earlier as a result of the Convergys acquisition.

Adjusted earnings in the quarter were $2.86 a share, higher than analysts' forecasts of $2.71.

Synnex said it expects adjusted fiscal third-quarter earnings of $2.80 to $2.92 a share on sales of $5.55 billion to $5.85 billion.
