Insight Enterprises, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and Record Full Year 2017 Results

TEMPE, Ariz., Feb. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Insight Enterprises, Inc. (Nasdaq:NSIT) (the “Company”) today reported results of operations for the quarter and full year ended December 31, 2017. 

  • Net sales up 22% year over year to $1.8 billion for the fourth quarter and also up 22% for the full year
    • Net sales up 30% year over year in North America for the fourth quarter and full year
  • Gross profit up 22% year over year to $232.9 million for the fourth quarter and up 24% for the full year
  • Earnings from operations up 12% year over year to $45.5 million for the fourth quarter and up 20% for the full year
    • Adjusted earnings from operations up 5% year over year for the fourth quarter and up 24% for the full year

In the fourth quarter of 2017, consolidated net sales increased 22% year over year, reflecting growth in the Company’s core business of 12% and the addition of Datalink, which the Company acquired in January 2017.  Gross profit also grew 22% year over year, with gross margins increasing 10 basis points in the quarter.  Selling and administrative expenses increased 27% year over year, primarily related to the addition of Datalink.  Overall, earnings from operations increased 12% year over year and Adjusted earnings from operations increased 5% year over year.

The Company’s fourth quarter results reflect additional income tax expense of $13.4 million recognized as a result of the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that was enacted in December 2017.  The incremental income tax expense primarily relates to the remeasurement of the Company’s deferred tax asset balances and withholding taxes.  The Company expects its effective tax rate will be between 27% and 28% for the full year 2018, primarily related to a 14% decrease in the U.S. federal income tax rate as a result of the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

“Our fourth quarter results reflect a strong close to a very good year,” stated Ken Lamneck, President and Chief Executive Officer.  “We reported strong organic growth in our core business in 2017 and gained market share from competitors in North America, according to third party data, reflecting growth in data center solutions as well as devices.  Our acquisition of Datalink in January 2017 complemented the growth in our core business.  We realized expense synergies ahead of our expectations and are pleased with the overall financial results of the Datalink business in its first year as part of Insight.  I am pleased to report that gross profit growing faster than sales and tight cost management across the business in 2017 produced an impressive increase in earnings from operations year over year,” stated Lamneck.

For the full year 2017, consolidated net sales were $6.7 billion, up 22% year over year, reflecting strong growth in the Company’s core business and the addition of Datalink.  Gross profit was $918.6 million in 2017, and grew faster than net sales at 24% year over year.  That increase drove margins up 20 basis points to 13.7% for the full year 2017.  Selling and administrative expenses increased 24% year over year, primarily related to the addition of Datalink.  Selling and administrative expenses in the Company’s core business increased 5% year over year.  Overall, earnings from operations increased 20% year over year and Adjusted earnings from operations increased 24% year over year.

“Our plans for 2018 are focused on driving growth in excess of the market across our operating segments,” stated Lamneck.  “The IT industry is healthy and growing.  More than ever, clients are challenged to efficiently manage their day-to-day IT operations while they leverage technology to transform their business to bring value to their own customers.  We have a full suite of solutions that we developed over time and have acquired through recent acquisitions, which position us to provide value to our clients throughout their technology journey and provide a strong foundation for us to compete in the marketplace in 2018,” stated Lamneck.

As services have become a larger portion of the Company’s consolidated net sales, for the year ended December 31, 2017, the Company began reporting net sales from the provision of services and the related costs of goods sold separately from net sales of products and the related costs of goods.  For comparability purposes, net sales and costs of goods sold for the 2016 periods have been expanded to conform to the current year presentation.  These changes in presentation had no effect on previously reported total net sales, total costs of goods sold or gross profit amounts.

In conjunction with these changes in presentation, because fees earned from activities reported net are considered services revenues, the Company reclassified certain revenue streams for which the Company acts as the agent in the transaction to net sales from services.  Previously, the Company included these net revenue streams within its software and, to a lesser extent, hardware sales mix categories based on the type of product being sold (e.g., fees earned for the sale of software maintenance and certain software licenses were included in software sales and fees earned for the sale of certain third-party provided training and warranty services were included in hardware sales when the Company historically disclosed and analyzed its sales mix).  For comparability purposes, the Company’s sales mix among its hardware, software and services categories for the three months and year ended December 31, 2016, as presented in the Financial Summary Table in this press release, has been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.  These reclassifications had no effect on previously reported total net sales amounts.

In discussing financial results for the three months and years ended December 31, 2017 and 2016 in this press release, the Company refers to certain financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”).  When referring to non-GAAP measures, the Company refers to such measures as “Adjusted.”  See “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for additional information.  A tabular reconciliation of financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP to the 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.

STOCK REPURCHASE PROGRAM

On February 13, 2018, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to $50 million of the Company’s common stock.  The Company’s share repurchases will be made on the open market, subject to Rule 10b-18 or in privately negotiated transactions, through block trades, through 10b5-1 plans or otherwise, at management’s discretion.  The amount of shares purchased and the timing of the purchases will be based on market conditions, working capital requirements, general business conditions and other factors.  The Company intends to retire the repurchased shares.

GUIDANCE

For the full year 2018, the Company expects to deliver net sales growth in the low single digit range compared to 2017.  The Company also expects Adjusted diluted earnings per share for the full year 2018 to be between $3.90 and $4.00. 

This outlook assumes:

  • the effects of the Company’s adoption of the new revenue recognition standard effective January 1, 2018;
  • an effective tax rate between 27% and 28%; and
  • capital expenditures of $15 to $20 million.

This outlook does not include the completion of the Company’s recently authorized share repurchase program and assumes no severance and restructuring or acquisition-related expenses.  Due to the inherent difficulty of forecasting these types of expenses, which impact net earnings and diluted earnings per share, the Company is unable to reasonably estimate the related impact of such expenses, if any, to net earnings and diluted earnings per share.  Accordingly, the Company is unable to provide a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP diluted earnings per share for the full year 2018 forecast. 

CONFERENCE CALL AND WEBCAST

The Company will host a conference call and live web cast today at 5:00 p.m. ET to discuss fourth quarter and full year 2017 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.  To listen to the live web cast by telephone, call 1-877-402-8904 if located in the U.S., 678-809-1029 for international callers, and enter the access code 2789109. NSIT-F

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 (i) severance and restructuring expenses, (ii) certain acquisition-related expenses, (iii) a loss on the sale of the Company’s Russia business in the year ended December 31, 2017, (iv) a gain on the sale of real estate in the year ended December 31, 2016 and (v) the tax effects of each of these items as well as income tax expense recognized as a result of U.S. federal tax reform laws enacted in December 2017.  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.
