Avnet Reports Q2 Returns

PHOENIX — Avnet, Inc. (NYSE:AVT) today announced results for the second quarter fiscal year 2011 ended January 1, 2011.

Sales for the quarter ended January 1, 2011 increased 40% year over year to a record $6.8 billion; pro forma revenue (as defined later in this release) was up 14% year over year

Adjusted operating income increased 58% to $256.7 million and adjusted operating income margin of 3.79% was up 43 basis points year over year and 19 basis points sequentially

Adjusted diluted earnings per share increased 62% over the prior year quarter to a record $1.07 per share on a diluted basis

Included in GAAP net income is a total of $23.8 million after tax and $0.16 per share on a diluted basis related to restructuring, integration and other charges

Roy Vallee, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “The December quarter capped an excellent calendar year as we continued to leverage the technology driven economic recovery and delivered a fourth consecutive quarter of double-digit year-over-year organic revenue growth. Reported revenue grew 40% year over year to a record $6.8 billion and adjusted operating income grew nearly 1.5 times faster than revenue. The operating leverage in our model drove adjusted operating income margin up both sequentially and year over year, with return on capital employed (ROCE) within our target range of 14% – 16% for the fifth consecutive quarter. Both operating groups delivered ROCE above 15% in the December quarter even as we continued to invest in organic growth initiatives and value-creating M&A in all three regions. With technology markets pointing towards continued growth, we are optimistic that we can continue to grow revenue and EPS and deliver increased shareholder value going forward.”
