GREENVILLE, S.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ScanSource, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCSC), a leading provider of technology products and solutions, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2019.
“While we did not finish our fiscal year as strongly as we started, we delivered record net sales of $3.9 billion for fiscal year 2019,” said Mike Baur, Chairman and CEO, ScanSource, Inc. “In North America, we are executing on our strategic initiatives to offer technology solutions, services and recurring revenue as One ScanSource. Earlier today, we announced plans to divest of certain businesses outside of the United States, Canada and Brazil to align our investments with higher-growth, higher-margin businesses.”
Net sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2019 decreased 3% year-over-year to $960.8 million. Organic sales, which exclude the impact of foreign currency translation and recent acquisitions, decreased 2% year-over-year, primarily in the Worldwide Barcode, Security and Networking segment. Operating income increased 1% to $20.0 million year-over-year. Non-GAAP operating income decreased 4% to $29.4 million, primarily from lower sales volumes.
On a GAAP basis, net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2019 totaled $11.6 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, compared with net income of $10.4 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, for the prior-year quarter.

For fiscal year 2019, net sales increased 1% to $3.9 billion. Organic sales for fiscal year 2019 increased 2% year-over-year, driven by 9% sales growth in the Worldwide Communications and Services segment. Operating income increased 33% to $90.0 million, largely from decreased expense for the change in fair value of contingent consideration. Non-GAAP operating income increased 4% to $128.5 million, driven by higher gross profit and higher margins.
On a GAAP basis, net income for fiscal year 2019 totaled $57.6 million, or $2.24 per diluted share, compared to net income of $33.2 million, or $1.29 per diluted share, for the prior-year.
