Factors at Play

Avnet’s quarterly performance is likely to have benefited from high demand for its electronic components. Further, the Americas and EMEA regions are anticipated to have registered higher revenues, which typically generate high margins. This is likely to have boosted profitability in the quarter to be reported.

Moreover, Farnell was appointed as an authorized distributor for National Instruments in January this year, which is likely to have been a growth booster during the quarter under review.

Also, efficient cost-reduction programs are expected to have been a positive for margins during the fiscal fourth quarter.

However, headwinds related to the pandemic, including supply-chain challenges, might have prevailed through the fiscal fourth quarter.
