"We are pleased to report another quarter of strong financial performance as we begin our next chapter as a publicly traded company," said Thomas E. Richards, chairman and chief executive officer of CDW. "This quarter's performance demonstrates the power of our balanced portfolio of customers, products and technologies when combined with our focus on execution and profitable growth as we once again grew faster than U.S. IT market estimates and delivered solid profitability. We saw excellent momentum in sales to our largest customer channel, medium and large businesses, which increased 13 percent."

"Strong operating results and lower interest expense helped deliver nearly 18 percent growth in year-over-year Non-GAAP net income," said Ann E. Ziegler, CDW's chief financial officer. "Our recent return to the public equity market raised over $400 million, which we are principally using to further reduce debt. We anticipate that strong cash flows and future refinancings will enable us to further delever our balance sheet, reducing interest expense and fueling earnings growth."

"We intend to profitably gain share and outpace market growth in 2013 by 200-300 basis points," continued Richards. "Our successful initial public offering and continued strong financial results are a testament to the unique value we deliver to our customers and vendor partners, our ability to execute and the strength of our business model. We remain excited by the breadth of opportunities available to us to continue to build long-term shareholder value," concluded Richards.

Second Quarter of 2013 Highlights:

Total net sales in the second quarter of 2013 were $2.779 billion, compared to $2.585 billion in the second quarter of 2012, an increase of 7.5 percent. Average daily sales in the second quarter of 2013 were $43.4 million, compared to $40.4 million in the second quarter of 2012, representing a 7.5 percent increase. There were 64 selling days in both the second quarter of 2013 and 2012.

  • Total Corporate segment net sales in the second quarter of 2013 were $1.537 billion, 10.3 percent higher than the second quarter of 2012. Corporate average daily sales in the second quarter of 2013 were $24.0 million, compared to $21.8 million in the second quarter of 2012. Corporate results reflected strong sales to Medium and Large business customers, which more than offset a slight reduction in sales to Small business customers.
  • Total Public segment net sales in the second quarter of 2013 were $1.083 billion, 4.1 percent higher than the second quarter of 2012. Public average daily sales in the second quarter of 2013 were $16.9 million, compared to $16.3 million in the second quarter of 2012. Public results reflected strong net sales increases to Education and State and Local government customers, which offset lower sales to the Federal government.
  • Net sales for CDW's Advanced Services business and Canadian operations, combined as "Other" for reporting purposes, rose 6.2 percent to $159.3 million in the second quarter of 2013, compared to $149.9 million in the second quarter of 2012. Average daily sales in the second quarter of 2013 were $2.5 million, compared to $2.3 million in the second quarter of 2012. CDW's Advanced Services business consists of customized engineering services delivered by CDW professional engineers and managed services, including hosting and data center services.

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2013 was $451.6 million, compared to $426.9 million in the second quarter of 2012, representing an increase of 5.8 percent. Gross profit margin was 16.2 percent in the second quarter of 2013, versus 16.5 percent for the same period of 2012, as the impacts of lower product margin and the absence of the prior period impact of a favorable vendor audit outcome were partially offset by items accounted for as 100 percent gross margin, which include commission revenue and net service contract revenue, and a higher percentage of Advanced Services revenue.

Total selling and administrative expenses, including advertising expense, were $298.0 million in the second quarter of 2013, compared to $290.5 million in the second quarter of 2012, representing an increase of 2.6 percent. This increase was primarily due to increased sales compensation related to higher sales and gross profit, partially offset by the timing of coworker hiring. Coworker count was 6,810 as of June 30, 2013, compared to 6,804 as of December 31, 2012.

Adjusted EBITDA was $212.6 million in the second quarter of 2013, compared to $200.6 million in the second quarter of 2012, representing an increase of 6.0 percent. Second quarter 2013 Adjusted EBITDA margin was 7.6 percent, 20 basis points below last year's second quarter.

Net income for the second quarter of 2013 was $46.7 million, up 26.7 percent over the second quarter of 2012 net income of $36.8 million. Interest expense was down $6.6 million to $70.3 million during the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared to $76.9 million during the comparable period in 2012 reflecting lower outstanding balances and a lower average interest rate. Debt extinguishment charges were $10.3 million in the second quarter of 2013. There were no debt extinguishment charges in the second quarter of 2012. The effective tax rate in the second quarter of 2013 was 36.2 percent versus 38.4 percent for the second quarter of 2012.

Non-GAAP net income, which excludes amortization related to the 2007 going-private transaction and certain debt refinancing and other costs, was $79.2 million in the second quarter of 2013, compared to $67.2 million in the second quarter of 2012, representing an increase of 17.8 percent driven by higher operating results and lower interest expense.

First Six Months of 2013 Highlights:

Total net sales in the first six months of 2013 were $5.191 billion, compared to $4.904 billion in the first six months of 2012, an increase of 5.9 percent. Average daily sales for the first six months of 2013 were $40.9 million, compared to $38.3 million for the first six months of 2012, representing a 6.7 percent increase. There were 127 selling days in the first six months of 2013 versus 128 selling days for the same period in 2012.

Gross profit for the first six months of 2013 was $853.6 million, compared to $811.5 million in the first six months of 2012, representing an increase of 5.2 percent.

Total selling and administrative expenses, including advertising expense, were $579.9 million in the first six months of 2013, compared to $571.5 million in the first six months of 2012, representing an increase of 1.5 percent. Adjusted EBITDA was $391.2 million in the first six months of 2013, compared to $367.0 million in the first six months of 2012, representing an increase of 6.6 percent.

Net income was $75.0 million for the first six months of 2013, up 57.1 percent compared to net income of $47.7 million in the first six months of 2012. Debt extinguishment charges were $14.2 million in the first six months of 2013, compared to $9.4 million for the same period in 2012. Interest expense was $142.4 million for the first six months of 2013, 8.5 percent below interest expense of $155.8 million for the same period in 2012. The effective tax rate for the first six months of 2013 was 36.3 percent versus 36.2 percent for the first six months of 2012.

Non-GAAP net income, which excludes amortization related to the 2007 going-private transaction and certain debt refinancing and other costs, was $135.5 million in first half of 2013, compared to $113.1 million in the first half of 2012, representing an increase of 19.8 percent driven by higher operating results and lower interest expense.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

Non-GAAP Net income, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe these measures provide helpful information with respect to the company's operating performance and cash flows including CDW's ability to meet our future debt service, capital expenditures, dividend payments and working capital requirements. Adjusted EBITDA also provides helpful information as it is the primary measure used in certain financial covenants contained in the company's credit agreements.

The financial statement tables that accompany this press release include a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the applicable most comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP measures used by the company may differ from similar measures used by other companies, even when similar terms are used to identify such measures.

NON-GAAP NET INCOME, EBITDA AND ADJUSTED EBITDA

(dollars in millions)

(unaudited)
 
 
We have included reconciliations of Non-GAAP net income, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 below. Non-GAAP net income excludes, among other things, charges related to the amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, non-cash equity-based compensation and gains and losses from the early extinguishment of debt. EBITDA is defined as consolidated net income before interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA, which is a measure defined in our credit agreements, means EBITDA adjusted for certain items which are described in the table below. Non-GAAP net income, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are considered non-GAAP financial measures. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's performance, financial position, or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally included or excluded in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP measures used by the Company may differ from similar measures used by other companies, even when similar terms are used to identify such measures. We believe that Non-GAAP net income, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA provide helpful information with respect to our operating performance and cash flows including our ability to meet our future debt service, capital expenditures, and working capital requirements. Adjusted EBITDA also provides helpful information as it is the primary measure used in certain financial covenants contained in our credit agreements.
