Insight Enterprises, Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2016 Results

August 3, 2016 8:16 PM EDT

TEMPE, ARIZ.-- Insight Enterprises, Inc. (Nasdaq:NSIT) (the "Company") today reported results of operations for the quarter ended June 30, 2016.

In the second quarter of 2016, consolidated net sales were $1.46 billion, up 2% year over year. This improvement was primarily driven by an increase in net sales reported in the Company's North America operating segment, which generated more than $1 billion of net sales during the second quarter.

Consolidated gross profit was $209.2 million in the second quarter of 2016, up 9% year over year. This increase reflects gross margin expansion in all three of the Company's operating segments.

Consolidated earnings from operations increased 35% year over year to $58.1 million and diluted earnings per share increased to $0.96 compared to $0.67 reported in the second quarter of 2015. Adjusted diluted earnings per share was $0.97 in the second quarter of 2016 compared to $0.68 reported in the second quarter of last year.*

"In the second quarter, I am pleased to report that our global team came together exceptionally well to deliver on our financial objectives. Each of our operating segments drove high single digit or better gross profit growth year over year in constant currency while continuing to control discretionary expenses, which led to strong earnings growth for the quarter," stated Ken Lamneck, President and Chief Executive Officer. "As we enter the second half of 2016, we believe we are well positioned to continue to win in the marketplace and deliver on our commitments to our clients, teammates and shareholders," added Lamneck.

* In this press release, the Company refers to financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") in discussing financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015. When referring to non-GAAP measures, the Company refers to such measures as "Adjusted." Adjusted measures exclude the gain recorded in the second quarter of 2016 on an asset held for sale and severance and restructuring expenses recorded in all periods. A tabular reconciliation of financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures is included at the end of this press release.

The Company refers to changes in net sales, gross profit and earnings from operations on a consolidated basis and in North America, EMEA and APAC excluding the effects of fluctuating foreign currency exchange rates. In computing these changes and percentages, the Company compares the current year amount as translated into U.S. dollars under the applicable accounting standards to the prior year amount in local currency translated into U.S. dollars utilizing the weighted average translation rate for the current period.

The tax effect of Adjusted amounts referenced herein were computed using the statutory tax rate for the taxing jurisdictions in the operating segment in which the related expenses were recorded, adjusted for the effects of valuation allowances on net operating losses in certain jurisdictions.

GUIDANCE

Given the Company's first half 2016 financial performance, the Company is maintaining its outlook that net sales in 2016 are expected to grow in the low single digit range year over year, and the Company is increasing its GAAP diluted earnings per share outlook for the full year 2016 to a range of $2.33 to $2.43. Excluding the gain recorded in the second quarter of 2016 on an asset held for sale and severance and restructuring expenses recorded during the six months ended June 30, 2016, Adjusted diluted earnings per share for the full year 2016 is expected to be between $2.37 and $2.47.*

This outlook reflects:

  • an effective tax rate of approximately 37% - 38%; and
  • capital expenditures of $10 to $15 million for the full year.

The per share effects of the items excluded from Adjusted diluted earnings per share are included in the tabular reconciliation of financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures at the end of this press release.

CONFERENCE CALL AND WEBCAST

The Company will host a conference call and live webcast today at 5:00 p.m. ET to discuss second quarter 2016 results of operations. A live web cast of the conference call (in listen-only mode) will be available on the Company's web site at http://nsit.client.shareholder.com/events.cfm, and a replay of the web cast will be available on the Company's web site for a limited time following the call.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

The non-GAAP financial measures (referred to as Adjusted consolidated earnings from operations, Adjusted consolidated net earnings and Adjusted diluted earnings per share) exclude severance and restructuring expenses and a gain on the sale of real estate for which a non-cash impairment charge was previously reported as well as the tax effect of these items. The Company excludes these items when internally evaluating earnings from operations, tax expense, net earnings and diluted earnings per share for the Company and earnings from operations for each of the Company's operating segments. These non-GAAP measures are used to evaluate financial performance against budgeted amounts, to calculate incentive compensation, to assist in forecasting future performance and to compare the Company's results to those of the Company's competitors. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow for greater transparency, facilitate comparisons to prior periods and the Company's competitors' results and assist in forecasting performance for future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures presented by other companies. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.
