ScanSource, Inc. (NASDAQ:SCSC), the leading international value-added distributor of specialty technology products, today announced complete financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2012.

"We achieved record quarterly sales for our North America Communications and Security business units," said Mike Baur, CEO, ScanSource, Inc. "These results contributed to stronger performance in North America, where each of our business units had positive sequential quarter growth. Our international segment was weaker, particularly in our European businesses. Certain international markets, such as our Brazil business unit, had strong year-over-year sales growth as measured in the local currency.”

For the quarter ended June 30, 2012, net sales increased 2.7% to $754.5 million, compared with $734.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2011. Operating income decreased 3.2% to $28.3 million from $29.2 million in the comparable prior year quarter. The effective tax rate decreased to 30.9% in the current quarter from 31.7% in the prior year quarter. Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 was $19.8 million, or $0.71 per diluted share, compared with net income of $19.7 million, or $0.71 per diluted share, for the prior year quarter. The June 2012 quarter EPS of $0.71 includes a $0.03 benefit for the change in the fair value of contingent consideration for the Brazilian acquisition earn-out.

For fiscal year ended June 30, 2012, net sales increased $349 million, or 13.1%, to $3.0 billion from $2.7 billion for the prior year ended June 30, 2011.

Safe Harbor Statement
This press release contains comments that are “forward-looking” statements that involve risks and uncertainties; these statements are subject to the safe harbor created by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Any number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from anticipated or forecasted results, including, but not limited to, factors affecting our expanded operations in emerging markets, such as Brazil, that expose us to greater political and economic volatility than our operations in established markets; the results of purchase accounting; macroeconomic circumstances that could impact our business, such as currency fluctuations; continued adverse capital and credit market conditions; and an economic downturn. For more information concerning factors that could cause actual results to differ from anticipated results, see the Company's annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2011 and Form 10-Q for the quarters ended September 30, 2011, December 31, 2011, and March 31, 2012 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Except as may be required by law, the Company expressly disclaims any obligation to update these forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this press release or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.

Non-GAAP Financial Information
In addition to disclosing results that are determined in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), the Company also discloses return on invested capital (“ROIC”), a non-GAAP measure. Management uses ROIC as a performance measurement because it believes that this metric best balances the Company's operating results with its asset and liability management. It excludes the results of capitalization decisions, is easily computed and understood, and drives changes in shareholder value. In addition, the Company's Board of Directors uses this non-GAAP measure in evaluating management performance and setting management compensation. Analysis of results and outlook on a non-GAAP basis should be used as a complement to, and in conjunction with, data presented in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of the Company's non-GAAP financial information to GAAP is set forth in a following table.
