VERNON HILLS, Ill., Nov. 4, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CDW Corporation (NASDAQ:CDW), a leading multi-brand technology solutions provider to business, government, education and healthcare, today announced its third quarter 2015 results and the approval by its Board of Directors of a 59 percent increase in its quarterly cash dividend to shareholders.

“Once again the strength of our business model – underpinned by our balanced portfolio of channels, diverse product and technology portfolio and focus on profitable growth – enabled us to deliver solid topline growth and excellent profitability while making progress against our strategic and capital allocation priorities,” said Thomas E. Richards, chairman and chief executive officer of CDW. “This quarter’s performance reinforces our confidence in our strategy and supports today’s dividend action. Our new annual dividend rate of $0.43 per share is 59 percent higher than last year and more than double our initial $0.17 per share annual dividend following our IPO in June of 2013.”

“Solid organic operating results were amplified by lower interest expense and incremental earnings from the acquisition of UK IT solutions provider, Kelway, helping us deliver a 31 percent increase in non-GAAP net income per share in the quarter,” said Ann E. Ziegler, CDW’s chief financial officer. “Given our performance to date and outlook for the fourth quarter we continue to expect to exceed our non-GAAP earnings per share target of mid-teens growth in 2015 and now look for growth in the low twenties.”

“We continue to target profitable growth in 2015 and expect organic constant currency growth to outpace the US IT market by 200 to 300 basis points,” continued Richards. “We remain laser-focused on execution and meeting the needs of our more than 250,000 customers in the US, Canada and the UK and remaining the partner of choice for more than 1,000 leading and emerging technology brands as the technology market continues to evolve.”

A quarterly cash dividend payment of $0.1075 per share will be paid on December 10, 2015 to all shareholders of record as of the close of business on November 25, 2015.

Third Quarter of 2015 Highlights:

Organic net sales growth, which excludes the impact of the acquisition of Kelway made during the quarter, was 3.0 percent. Organic net sales growth on a constant currency basis versus third quarter 2014 was 3.6 percent, as Canadian sales were negatively impacted by currency translation. Average daily sales in the third quarter of 2015 were $54.7 million, compared to $51.0 million in the third quarter of 2014. There were 64 selling days in the third quarters of both 2015 and 2014.

  • Total Corporate segment net sales in the third quarter of 2015 were $1.724 billion, 6.3 percent higher than the third quarter of 2014. Corporate average daily sales in the third quarter of 2015 were $26.9 million, compared to $25.4 million in the third quarter of 2014. Corporate results reflected a 6.1 percent sales increase to Medium and Large customers and a 7.1 percent sales increase to Small Business customers.
     
  • Total Public segment net sales in the third quarter of 2015 were relatively flat at $1.468 billion, compared to $1.469 billion in the third quarter of 2014. Public average daily sales in the third quarter of 2015 were $22.9 million, compared to $23.0 million in the third quarter of 2014. Public results were led by a sales increase of almost 10.7 percent to Government customers offset by a 8.5 percent decrease in Education sales. Healthcare sales increased 1.5 percent.
     
  • Net sales for CDW’s Advanced Services business and, Canadian and Kelway operations, combined as “Other” for financial reporting purposes, were $308.5 million in the third quarter of 2015, $133.9 million higher than the third quarter of 2014. Mid-teens growth in Advanced Services was offset by a high-single digit decline in US dollar-denominated Canadian sales. Canadian sales in local currency increased high-single digits. Net sales generated by Kelway during the quarter were $138.4 million. “Other” average daily sales in the third quarter of 2015 were $4.8 million, compared to $2.7 million in the third quarter of 2014.

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2015 was $567.2 million, compared to $507.3 million in the third quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 11.8 percent. Gross profit margin was 16.2 percent in the third quarter of 2015, versus 15.5 percent for the same period in 2014, primarily reflecting the benefit of a higher contribution of 100 percent gross margin revenues, such as net service contract revenue and higher vendor partner funding.

Total selling and administrative expenses and advertising expense, were $362.6 million in the third quarter of 2015, compared to $322.6 million in the third quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 12.4 percent. This increase was primarily driven by incremental Kelway expenses, higher sales compensation consistent with the growth in solutions-related sales and gross margin as well as higher marketing and advertising investment. Including Kelway, coworker count was 8,269 as of September 30, 2015, compared to 7,242 as of September 30, 2014.

Adjusted EBITDA, which excludes expenses related to non-cash equity and retention compensation, loss and income from equity investments, acquisition and integration expenses, gain on remeasurement of the company’s initial 35 percent equity investment in Kelway to fair value, certain debt refinancing costs and certain other items, was $282.1 million in the third quarter of 2015, compared to $242.6 million in the third quarter of 2014, representing an increase of 16.3 percent. Third quarter 2015 Adjusted EBITDA margin was 8.1 percent, versus 7.4 percent for the third quarter of 2014. 

Interest expense decreased by $11.6 million to $38.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015, compared to $50.1 million for the comparable period in 2014, reflecting a lower average interest rate.

The effective tax rate for the third quarter of 2015 was 38.7 percent which resulted in a tax expense of $95.3 million compared to a 37.9 percent tax rate and tax expense of $33.9 million in the third quarter of 2014.

Net income was $150.9 million in the third quarter of 2015 versus $55.6 million in the third quarter of 2014.

The company repurchased a total of 2.7 million shares for $101.6 million during the third quarter of 2015.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Non-GAAP net income, Non-GAAP net income per diluted share, Organic net sales growth (defined as net sales excluding the impact of current period acquisitions) and Organic net sales growth on a constant currency basis (defined as organic net sales growth excluding the impact of currency translation on organic sales compared to the prior period) are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe these measures provide helpful information with respect to the company’s operating performance and cash flows including our ability to meet our future debt service, capital expenditures and working capital requirements and our ability to make dividend payments. Adjusted EBITDA also provides helpful information as it is the primary measure used in certain key covenants and definitions contained in the company’s credit agreements.

The financial statement tables that accompany this press release include a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the applicable most comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP measures used by the company may differ from similar measures used by other companies, even when similar terms are used to identify such measures.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURE RECONCILIATIONS

We have included reconciliations of Non-GAAP net income, Non-GAAP net income per diluted share, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Organic net sales growth and Organic net sales growth on a constant currency basis for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 below. Non-GAAP net income excludes, among other things, charges related to the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, non-cash equity-based compensation, acquisition and integration costs, and gains and losses from the extinguishment of long-term debt. With respect to Non-GAAP net income per diluted share, the numerator is Non-GAAP net income and the denominator is the weighted average number of shares as adjusted to give effect to dilutive securities. EBITDA is defined as consolidated net income before interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA, which is a measure defined in our credit agreements, means EBITDA adjusted for certain items which are described in the table below. Adjusted EBITDA margin means Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of our net sales. Organic net sales growth is calculated as net sales growth excluding the impact of current period acquisitions. Organic net sales growth on a constant currency basis is calculated as organic net sales growth excluding the impact of currency translation on organic net sales compared to the prior period. Non-GAAP net income, Non-GAAP net income per diluted share, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Organic net sales growth, and Organic net sales growth on a constant currency basis are considered non-GAAP financial measures. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s performance, financial position, or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally included or excluded in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP measures used by the company may differ from similar measures used by other companies, even when similar terms are used to identify such measures. We believe that Non-GAAP net income, Non-GAAP net income per diluted share, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Organic net sales growth and Organic net sales growth on a constant currency basis provide helpful information with respect to our operating performance and cash flows including our ability to meet our future debt service, capital expenditures and working capital requirements. Adjusted EBITDA also provides helpful information as it is the primary measure used in certain key covenants and definitions contained in our credit agreements.

(i)  As a result of the adoption of Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2015-03 during the second quarter of 2015, historical periods have been revised to reflect the change in the presentation of deferred financing costs, which are now shown as a reduction of long-term debt, instead of being presented as a separate asset on the balance sheet. In the third quarter of 2015, the Company adopted ASU 2015-15 which allows entities to present deferred financing costs for line-of-credit arrangements as an asset. The Company retroactively adjusted the deferred financing costs and long-term debt liability presented in historical periods to align it to the current period presentation.
