“I am pleased to report record sales and solid profitability for our fiscal
third quarter,” stated Kevin Murai, President and Chief Executive Officer,
SYNNEX Corporation. Murai continued, “Our Distribution segment posted strong
sales growth and operating margin, and our GBS segment continued its trend of
double-digit sales growth.”

Fiscal 2013 Third Quarter Highlights:

  *Distribution: Revenue was $2.69 billion, an increase of 6.0% over the
    prior fiscal year quarter. Adjusting for the translation effect of foreign
    currencies, primarily the yen, our distribution business on a constant
    dollar basis was up 8.8%. Distribution income before non-operating items,
    income taxes and noncontrolling interest was $61.8 million, or 2.30% of
    distribution revenue compared with $52.6 million, or 2.08% in the prior
    fiscal year quarter.
  *Global Business Services (GBS): Revenue was $55.1 million, an increase of
    10.7% over the prior fiscal year quarter. GBS income before non-operating
    items, income taxes and noncontrolling interest was $1.8 million, or 3.22%
    of GBS revenue compared with $4.6 million, or 9.21% in the prior fiscal
    year quarter. GBS results include $2.3 million in pre-tax charges
    primarily related to costs associated with our recently announced
    agreement to acquire IBM’s CRM business.
  *Trailing fiscal four quarters ROIC was 9.7% for the fiscal third quarter
    of 2013, compared to 11.1% in the prior fiscal year quarter.
  *The cash conversion cycle was 41 days, unchanged from the prior fiscal
    year quarter.
  *The debt to capitalization ratio was 15%.
  *Depreciation and amortization were $4.1 million and $2.0 million,
  *The Company settled its $144 million 4% convertible senior notes for $219
    million in cash during the fiscal third quarter of 2013 in accordance with
    the settlement provisions of the indenture. Due to the Company’s decision
    to settle the convertible senior notes in cash, the difference in the
    estimated value of the conversion premium from the fiscal second quarter
    to the date of settlement represented an adjustment to equity and a
    numerator adjustment for diluted EPS, resulting in a one-time dilutive
    effect of $1.05 to diluted EPS.

Fiscal 2013 Fourth Quarter Outlook:

The following statements are based on the Company’s current expectations for
the fiscal 2013 fourth quarter. These statements are forward-looking and
actual results may differ materially.

-- Revenue is expected to be in the range of $2.925 billion to $3.025 billion.

-- Net income is expected to be in the range of $43.0 million to $44.4

-- Diluted EPS is expected to be in the range of $1.14 to $1.18.

-- This outlook excludes one-time charges and integration costs.

Recent Acquisition Announcement:

On September 10, 2013 the Company announced an agreement to acquire IBM’s $1.2
billion+ customer relationship management business process outsourcing
business for $505 million. As we announced previously, this acquisition is
expected to initially close in the coming months, at which point additional
details will be provided.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement the financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, SYNNEX
uses adjusted diluted earnings per share, which is a non-GAAP financial
measure, to provide investors with an additional tool to evaluate operating
results. Because this non-GAAP measure is not calculated in accordance with
GAAP, it may not necessarily be comparable to a similarly titled measure
employed by other companies. This non-GAAP financial measure should not be
considered in isolation or as a substitute for the comparable GAAP measure,
and should be read only in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated
financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

SYNNEX management uses the non-GAAP financial measure internally to
understand, manage and evaluate the business. SYNNEX management believes it is
useful for the Company and investors to review, as applicable, both GAAP
information, and the non-GAAP measure, which excludes information because of
its one-time nature, in order to assess the performance of the Company’s
continuing businesses and for planning and forecasting in future periods. This
non-GAAP measure is intended to provide investors with an understanding of the
Company’s operational results and trends that more readily enable investors to
analyze SYNNEX’ base financial and operating performance and to facilitate
period-to-period comparisons and analysis of operational trends. The
management of SYNNEX believes the non-GAAP financial measure is useful to
investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to supplemental
information used by management in its financial and operational
decision-making. A reconciliation of the Company's non-GAAP financial
information to GAAP is set forth in the following supplemental information
