TD SYNNEX (SNX) Q4 Earnings Top Estimates, Revenues Miss

TD SYNNEX SNX reported mixed results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023, wherein the bottom line surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate, while the top line missed the same.

The company reported fourth-quarter non-GAAP earnings per share (EPS) of $3.13, which topped the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $2.69. The bottom-line performance was primarily driven by lower-than-expected interest expenses and income tax rates, along with a reduction in outstanding diluted shares. However, the company’s non-GAAP EPS declined 9% year over year, mainly due to lower-than-expected revenues.

Revenues decreased 11.3% year over year to $14.41 billion and missed the consensus mark of $14.54 billion. The decline in revenues was due to reduced demand for PC ecosystem products across various industries.

This, coupled with the ongoing post-pandemic situation, led to decreased sales in the company’s Endpoint Solutions portfolio. Furthermore, SNX also experienced a decline in revenues due to a shift in business mix and the migration of one of its Hyve customers to the consignment model.

On a constant-currency basis, fourth-quarter revenues decreased 13.3%.
