MERRIMACK, N.H.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--August 4, 2022--Connection (PC Connection, Inc.; NASDAQ: CNXN), a leading information technology solutions provider to business, government, healthcare and education markets, today announced results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.

"We continued to execute well against our strategic objectives across each of our business segments and delivered another record quarter. There was strong demand for hybrid work solutions, cloud, and software, as companies continue to modernize and secure their environments," said Timothy McGrath, President and Chief Executive Officer of Connection.

Net sales for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 increased by 17.7% to $828.5 million, compared to $704.2 million for the prior year quarter. Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 increased by 46.9% to $25.4 million, or $0.96 per diluted share, compared to net income of $17.3 million, or $0.66 per diluted share, for the prior year quarter.

Net sales for the six months ended June 30, 2022 increased by 20.6% to $1,616.9 million, compared to $1,341.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021. Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2022 increased by 71.8% to $47.2 million, or $1.79 per diluted share, compared to net income of $27.5 million, or $1.04 per diluted share for the six months ended June 30, 2021.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, adjusted for stock-based compensation expense and restructuring and other charges ("Adjusted EBITDA") increased 45% to $140.5 million for the twelve months ended June 30, 2022, compared to $96.7 million for the twelve months ended June 30, 2021. 1

Quarterly Performance by Segment:

  • Net sales for the Business Solutions segment increased by 22.9% to $328.4 million in the second quarter of 2022, compared to $267.3 million in the prior year quarter. Gross profit increased by 27.7% to $65.5 million in the second quarter of 2022, compared to $51.3 million in the prior year quarter. Gross margin increased by 75 basis points to 19.9% primarily due to a change in product mix.
  • Net sales for the Public Sector Solutions segment increased by 16.5% to $151.2 million in the second quarter of 2022, compared to $129.7 million in the prior year quarter. Sales to state and local governments and educational institutions increased by 24.8%, compared to the prior year quarter, while sales to the federal government decreased by 18.6%. Gross profit increased by 15.5% to $20.8 million in the second quarter of 2022, compared to $18.0 million in the prior year quarter. Gross margin decreased by 12 basis points to 13.8% primarily due to changes in both product and customer mix.
  • Net sales for the Enterprise Solutions segment increased by 13.6% to $348.9 million in the second quarter of 2022, compared to $307.2 million in the prior year quarter. Gross profit increased by 7.6% to $50.6 million in the second quarter of 2022, compared to $47.0 million in the prior year quarter. Gross margin decreased by 80 basis points to 14.5% primarily due to a change in product mix.

Quarterly Highlights

  • Continued growth in our vertical markets:
    • In the Retail vertical, we grew revenue 10% year-over-year as a result of retailers investing in employee productivity, customer experience, and inventory management systems.
    • Revenue for the Manufacturing vertical grew 16% year-over-year as manufacturers focused on productivity, cost reduction, and improved quality through the use of innovative technologies as a means to meet business objectives and gain long-term competitive advantages. These changes are driving investments in networking, security, hybrid data center, and end-user devices.

Quarterly Sales by Product Mix:

  • Notebook/mobility sales increased 21% year over year and accounted for 37% of net sales in the second quarter of 2022, compared to 36% of net sales in the second quarter of 2021.
  • Accessories sales increased by 35% year over year and accounted for 13% of net sales in the second quarter of 2022, compared to 11% of net sales in the second quarter of 2021.
  • Software sales increased by 1% year over year and accounted for 9% of net sales in the second quarter of 2022, compared to 10% of net sales in the second quarter of 2021.
  • Desktop sales increased by 32% year over year and accounted for 11% of net sales in the second quarter of 2022, compared to 10% of net sales in the second quarter of 2021.

Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses increased in the second quarter of 2022 to $102.1 million from $92.6 million in the prior year quarter. SG&A as a percentage of net sales decreased to 12.3%, compared to 13.1% in the prior year quarter. The increase in SG&A was primarily due to an increase in personnel cost associated with an investment in incremental headcount focused on building stronger marketing and technical organizations and an increase in variable compensation due to higher levels of gross profit.

Cash and cash equivalents were $94.9 million at June 30, 2022, compared to $108.3 million at December 31, 2021.

"I would like to thank our dedicated team for their commitment and exceptional effort in delivering these record results," concluded Mr. McGrath. "We believe the team and the strategies we have in place well position Connection to gain market share and increase long-term shareholder value."

EBITDA AND ADJUSTED EBITDA






















A reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP measure is detailed below. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) adjusted for restructuring and other charges, and stock-based compensation. Both 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 includes or excludes amounts that are not normally included or excluded in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. We believe that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA provide helpful information with respect to our operating performance including our ability to fund our future 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. When analyzing our operating performance, investors should use EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA in addition to, and not as alternatives for Net income or any other performance measure presented in accordance with GAAP. Our non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to other similar titled measures of other companies.
