Kevin Murai, president and CEO, commented on the effects of the
Japanese earthquake and tsunami. "We are very pleased to report that all of our
employees are safe and unharmed," Murai noted. "Synnex Infotec suffered nominal
inventory and facility damage, and we expect that the demand environment in
Japan will be somewhat affected in the coming months. We believe that demand
will remain solid in our base distribution and GBS business segments, and we
will continue to outperform the market."
