MERRIMACK, N.H.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- PC Connection, Inc.(NASDAQ: PCCC), a provider of a full range of information technology (IT) solutions to business, government, and education markets, today announced results for the quarter ended June 30, 2013. Net sales for the second quarter of 2013 were $557.3 million, an increase of 2.7% compared to $542.6 million for the second quarter of 2012. Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 was $9.2 million, or $0.35 per share, compared to net income of $8.8 million, or $0.33 per share, for the corresponding prior year quarter.

Net sales for the six months ended June 30, 2013 were $1,062.7 million, an increase of $21.4 million or 2.1%, compared to $1,041.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012. Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2013 was $15.3 million, or $0.58 per share, compared to net income of $14.3 million, or $0.54 per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2012. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, and special charges ("Adjusted EBITDA") totaled $64.1 million for the twelve months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to $59.5 million for the twelve months ended June 30, 2012.

Quarterly Sales by Segment:

  • Net sales for the SMB segment increased by 5.5% in the quarter to $242.2 million, compared to net sales in the second quarter of 2012. Net/com sales had the strongest growth during the quarter due to increased enterprise networking sales. SMB software sales also continue to be strong due to increased demand in security, virtualization, and operating systems software.
  • Net sales for the Large Account segment of $196.2 million were relatively level compared to net sales in the second quarter of 2012. Growth in software and video, imaging, and sound sales was offset by declines in storage and net/com products. Commercial sales, which consists of SMB and Large Account sales, increased by 2.8% from the prior year quarter.
  • Net sales to government and education customers (Public Sector segment) increased by 2.5% year over year to $118.9 million. Sales to state and local government and educational institutions increased by 11.3% compared to last year. Federal budget constraints led to a 22.2% decrease in federal government sales.

Net sales to healthcare customers, which are included in each of the three selling segments, increased 25% versus the prior year quarter.

Quarterly Sales by Product Mix:

  • Notebook/tablet sales, the Company's largest product category, decreased slightly by 1% year over year and accounted for 19% of net sales in the second quarter of 2013 and 2012. Large Account experienced a slight year-over-year increase in notebook/tablet sales which was more than offset by a decrease in SMB sales. Unit sales increased year over year, however the increase in volume was offset by a decline in average selling prices.
  • Desktop/server sales accounted for 15% of net sales in the second quarter of 2013 and 2012. Revenues were very consistent versus prior year in each of the three segments.
  • Software sales increased by 7% year over year, accounting for 16% of net sales in the second quarter of 2013 and 2012. We experienced strong growth in both our SMB and Large Account software sales.
  • Net/Com Product sales increased by 8% year over year, accounting for 10% of net sales in the second quarter of 2013 and 2012. Strong growth in enterprise networking in the SMB segment contributed to the overall growth during the quarter.

Overall gross profit dollars increased by $2.3 million, or 3.3%, in the second quarter of 2013, compared to the prior year quarter. Consolidated gross margin, as a percentage of net sales, increased to 13.3% in the second quarter of 2013 compared to 13.2% in the prior year quarter.

Total selling, general and administrative expenses increased in dollars year over year, but remained flat as a percentage of net sales at 10.5% for the second quarter of 2013 and 2012. We are continuing to invest in solution sales capabilities and expect SG&A expenses to rise accordingly as the year progresses; however, we are highly focused on improving efficiencies and streamlining wherever possible.

The Company generated significant positive cash flow in the first half of 2013. Total cash was $64.2 million compared to $39.9 million at December 31, 2012. Days sales outstanding were 39 days at June 30, 2013 compared to 41 days at June 30, 2012, and inventory turns increased to 30 turns in the second quarter of 2013 compared to 28 turns in the prior year quarter.

"I am pleased with our results this quarter. We increased revenues, gross margin, operating margin, and earnings per share in a challenging environment. We had solid performance in our healthcare vertical that increased by 25%. We continue to transform our business to provide higher value technology solutions that help our customers solve their business challenges," said Timothy McGrath, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We believe the strategies we have put in place will position us well to gain market share and enhance long-term shareholder value."

EBITDA AND ADJUSTED EBITDA
                       
A reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is detailed below. EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA means EBITDA adjusted for certain items which are described in the table below. 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 excludes or includes 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.
