Avnet, Inc. Reports Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2014 Results

Mr. Hamada added, “Our selective participation in certain high volume fulfillment engagements in EM Asia drove revenue above expectations as revenue in this region grew 5.7% sequentially and 16.0% year over year. This growth in turn drove EM’s sequential organic sales growth above normal seasonality and year-over-year organic sales growth in constant currency increased to 11.4%. At the regional level, organic sales were up 13.0% in constant currency in EMEA, while Asia and the Americas were up 14.4% and 3.2%, respectively. This growth in revenue when combined with the impact of expense actions implemented in fiscal 2013 drove operating income up 20.1%, which resulted in operating income margin increasing 24 basis points to 4.1%. During the quarter, EM also completed its acquisition of MSC, which will provide new profitable growth opportunities in our EMEA region as we integrate the operations and realize the expected competitive benefits and synergies in the coming quarters. Given two consecutive quarters of year-over-year expansion in margins and returns, we feel confident that we can leverage our expected growth in our higher margin western regions and build on this performance in the seasonally stronger quarters of March and June at EM.”
