TD SYNNEX (SNX) Beats Q3 Earnings Estimates, Misses on Revenues

Read MoreHide Full Article

TD SYNNEX (SNX - Free Report) delivered mixed third-quarter fiscal 2021 results, wherein the bottom line surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate while revenues missed the mark.

Notably, TD SYNNEX was formerly known as SYNNEX Corporation, but the company changed its name after the acquisition of Tech Data Corporation on Sep 1. As the company’s fiscal third quarter ended on Aug 31, the quarterly results would only reflect the legacy SYNNEX’s financial performance.

The company’s fiscal third-quarter non-GAAP earnings of $2.14 per share topped the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 4.9% and improved 13.8% year over year.

However, revenues fell 1.9% year over year to $5.21 billion. The top-line figure also missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $5.23 billion.

The company continues to witness strong demand for its technology products and services. In addition, a steady IT spending environment, backed by rapid digital transformations, was a positive. Nonetheless, the prevailing industry-wide supply-chain constraint resulted in a marginal year-over-year decline in the top line.
