PC Connection, Inc. (CNXN) to Release Third Quarter Results; Provides Estimated Results

10/17/17

MERRIMACK, N.H.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 17, 2017-- Connection (PC Connection, Inc.; NASDAQ: CNXN), an industry-leading technology solutions provider of a full range of information technology (IT) solutions to business, government, and education markets, today announced certain estimated financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2017.

Connection expects to report revenue in the range of $725 million to $730 million for the third quarter ended September 30, 2017, representing growth of approximately 3% year over year. Gross profit for the third quarter is expected to range between $95 million and $98 million. In addition, for the third quarter, Connection expects to report net income of between $12.5 million and $13.5 million and diluted earnings per share from $0.48 to $0.50. Estimated third quarter results reflect a modest increase in revenue but at slightly lower gross margins.

“In the quarter, we were affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. We experienced delays in shipments from key suppliers and an inability to receive products by affected customers, which impacted our third quarter revenue by approximately three percent,” said Tim McGrath, President and Chief Executive Officer. “The decline in gross profit was further attributed to a competitive demand environment and adjustments in certain vendor channel programs. We are working to address these issues, and we continue to be focused on our expense management and on our operational efficiencies,” concluded Mr. McGrath.

The Company will release its third quarter operating results after close of market on Thursday, October 26, 2017. At 4:30 p.m. ET on that date, management will review these results during their quarterly conference call. To access the conference call, please dial 877-776-4016 (US) or 973-638-3231 (International).
