“With the onset of the global COVID-19 crisis, the first quarter brought challenges to businesses across geographies and sectors, including the IT ecosystem. With this backdrop, Tech Data once again is proving its role as the vital link in the IT supply chain, delivering the critical technologies and solutions needed to address rapidly evolving business needs, including enabling remote work. Throughout Q1, we experienced strong demand for Endpoint Solutions driven by remote work and business continuity needs. I’d like to acknowledge the dedication and commitment of our worldwide colleagues who continue to support our channel partners and each other with excellence in these unprecedented times,” said Rich Hume, chief executive officer, Tech Data. “The quarter also brought with it another milestone toward completing our acquisition by Apollo when we received shareholder approval of the transaction, which we look forward to closing upon completion of customary closing conditions.”

Acquisition Update

On November 12, 2019, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger, as subsequently amended on November 27, 2019 (the ''Merger Agreement''), with the affiliates of certain funds (the “Apollo Funds”), managed by affiliates of Apollo Global Management, LLC (“Apollo”), a leading global alternative investment manager. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, the affiliates of the Apollo Funds will acquire all the outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock for $145 per share in cash (the “Merger”). On February 12, 2020, the Company’s shareholders held a special meeting and approved the Merger Agreement.

The Company has received all regulatory approvals necessary to complete the Merger, except for the approval of the Australian Foreign Investment Review Board (“AFIRB”), which has the matter under consideration. The Company and Apollo are still targeting a closing in the first half of calendar year 2020, although this timing may shift based on the timeline for receipt of Australian regulatory approval. We expect to proceed with closing the transaction promptly after the final approval from the AFIRB is received, taking into account the timing requirements of the Merger Agreement, including the Marketing Period (as defined in the Merger Agreement).

In light of the pending acquisition by Apollo, the Company does not plan to host an earnings conference call nor provide forward-looking guidance. A copy of this press release, along with a supplemental slide deck can be accessed at https://investor.techdata.com/overview/default.aspx.

COVID-19 Response

The Company’s focus remains on protecting the health and well-being of our colleagues, while continuing to provide the best possible service levels to our channel partners and supporting our communities. Additional information about Tech Data’s COVID-19 response can be found at https://www.techdata.com/communications/default.aspx.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

The non-GAAP financial information contained in this release is included with the intention of providing investors a more complete understanding of the Company’s operational results and trends, but should only be used in conjunction with results reported in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”). Certain non-GAAP measures presented in this release or other releases, presentations and similar documents issued by the Company include sales, income or expense items as adjusted for the impact of changes in foreign currencies (referred to as “constant currency”), non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per diluted share and Adjusted Return on Invested Capital. Certain non-GAAP measures also exclude acquisition-related intangible assets amortization expense, benefits associated with legal settlements, acquisition, integration and restructuring expenses, goodwill impairment, gain on disposal of subsidiary, tax indemnifications, changes in deferred tax valuation allowances and the impact of U.S. tax reform. A detailed reconciliation of the adjustments between results calculated using GAAP and non-GAAP in this release is contained in the attached financial schedules.
