(Nasdaq:SCSC), a leading international distributor of AIDC (automatic identification and data capture), point of sale, communications and electronic security products for the reseller market, today announced selected financial results for its quarter ended March 31, 2007.
Net sales $492.7 million
Gross margin $51.0 million
“Our results were again led by the excellent growth in our AIDC business across all geographies,” said Mike Baur, President and CEO of ScanSource. “In addition, our investments are paying off with record results from T2 Supply and ScanSource Security.”
For the quarter ended March 31, 2007, net sales increased 21% to $492.7 million compared to $405.6 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2006. Quarterly gross margin increased to $51.0 million or 10.4% of revenues compared to $41.3 million or 10.2% for the same quarter in 2006.
On April 20, 2007, the Company announced that it had completed its accounting analysis of the Special Committee findings regarding the Company’s stock option grant practices and reached a determination that, under applicable accounting principles, the appropriate measurement dates for certain stock options differed from the recorded measurement dates for certain stock option grants.
Accordingly, on April 20, 2007, the Company announced that its Board of Directors had determined that the Company’s previously issued financial statements included in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2006, and perhaps financial statements for earlier periods, including other historical financial information, related disclosures and applicable reports of its independent registered public accounting firm, should no longer be relied upon and that the Company will restate previously issued financial statements as necessary. The Company intends to file with the SEC any consolidated financial statements required to be restated and its Quarterly Reports on Form 10–Q for the quarters ended September 30, 2006 and December 31, 2006, as soon as practicable. The Company will not be in a position to report net income or diluted EPS for the quarter ended March 31, 2007 or other periods until the above-referenced restatement and filing of quarterly reports for the first two quarters of the Company’s 2007 fiscal year are complete.
Forecast for Next Quarter
The Company announced its revenue forecast for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007. ScanSource expects net revenues for the June 2007 quarter could range from $512 million to $532 million.
