Tech Data Reports Record First Quarter Sales; Net Income Increases 21%

CLEARWATER, Fla., June 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Tech Data Corporation (Nasdaq: TECD - news) announced today record sales for its first quarter ended April 30, 1999. Sales for the quarter increased 77% to $3.88 billion from $2.18 billion for the comparable quarter last year. Net income increased 21% to $28.0 million, or $.53 per diluted share, compared with last year's first- quarter net income of $23.1 million, or $.46 per diluted share.

The company experienced strong first quarter sales in all product divisions, led by the systems division which increased 104% over the comparable period last year. Peripherals, software and networking sales grew 78%, 71% and 49%, respectively. Excluding the effect of acquisitions, first quarter sales growth rates were 17%, 18%, 12% and 17% in the U.S., Europe, other international markets and worldwide, respectively. U.S. business represented approximately 46% of overall sales during the quarter, while Europe and other international markets totaled 49% and 5%, respectively.

Recent announcements bolster the company's market position, including an unprecedented outsourcing agreement with GE Capital IT Solutions that is projected to generate $2 billion in annual incremental revenue for Tech Data upon full implementation. In another major development, Compaq Computer Corp. recently selected Tech Data as one of four partners in its North American Distributor Alliance Program, resulting in significant additional business opportunities. Tech Data also recently announced the successful tender offer to acquire the outstanding common shares of Globelle Corporation, a leading distributor in Canada that will double the company's size in this market. Tech Data now owns 82% of Globelle and is proceeding with its integration strategy.

''Our momentum is building as we enter this exciting new era in our 25-year history,'' commented Steven A. Raymund, Tech Data's chairman and chief executive officer. ''The last two decades have been a terrific success story for Tech Data. We view the most recent developments as the threshold to an even more dynamic future.''

Just got in and saw that earnings were quite good. You have me to thank; sold my shares 5 minutes before closing. Up so good that I figured selling at $41.50 was enough to satisfy me. Could't check after hour activity but stock must be up. Somebody post if you know.
For now I'm happy; $65,000 into $125,000 since Jan. Will look to get back in on any decent sell-off. Remember the saying; Bulls make money, bears make money, but HOGS will always go broke.

Revenues are way up, but earnings are more or less flat. Are margins suffering? Why?

Margins have been suffering for 3 quarters now across the industry because:

1) 2nd tier distributors selling at low pricing to garner market share at the expense of profits. I have heard Pinnacor and CHS accused of this.

2) More vendors and buyers going direct, in some cases avoiding distribution all together.

I don't buy the 2nd reason completely, because of the big jump in revenues over a year ago.

TECD sells more services than the others which have better margins. They also have yet to feel the benefit of the Compaq DAP and the GE deal. I believe today ($32) is a fine buying opportunity.

If $ 32 was a fine buying opportunity, under $ 30 is a steal!

This is a great company, folks. It is well-managed, it has earnings, it has lots of things going for it, but people have over-reacted and brought the price down.

Still holding onto my shares.

What gives? I just wish I had sold back @ $40 so I could have bought back in @ these levels! Why so much volume are people buying or dumping and why hasn't TD headed North?? Up
