PHOENIX -- November 19, 2012

No supply chain is invulnerable to disruption, but there are technologies and
solutions available to help companies gain the visibility necessary to more
proactively manage their supply chain risk and at the same time provide a
superior customer service experience. Avnet Electronics Marketing’s Vice
President, Global Supply Chain Operations Lalit Wadhwa will explain how OEMs
can leverage this visibility to become more competitive and profitable at the
Chief Supply Chain Officer Summit on November 29, in Chicago.

The Chief Supply Chain Officer Summit is an invitation-only event catering to
senior level supply chain and operations executives focusing on the exchange
of innovative ideas and solutions for managing the complexities of today’s
globally extended supply chains.

Wadhwa, a 20-year veteran of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), will present “Leveraging
Supply Chain Visibility for Improved Response Management – An Avnet Case
Study” on Thursday, November 29, 2012 at 4:30 p.m. CST at the Hyatt Chicago
Magnificent Mile. The session will address the following:

  *The need for supply chain visibility in globally extended supply chains
  *The multiple benefits supply chain visibility fuels
  *A case study demonstrating how leveraging visibility can drive supply
    chain segmentation and cost-to-serve analysis

“Visibility throughout the supply chain has always been a challenge for
operations executives, but when you add contemporary factors such as
globalization and outsourcing to the mix, OEMs can quickly find themselves in
the dark about the inner workings of their supply chains. This can be a very
dangerous and costly scenario for any business,” said Wadhwa. “However, there
are also resources available to organizations today that can help them regain
command and control of their extended supply networks and safeguard critical
working capital and operating expenses.”
