WESCO INTERNATIONAL, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(unaudited)

1. ORGANIZATION

WESCO International, Inc. and its subsidiaries (collectively, “WESCO”), headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is a full-line distributor of electrical, industrial and communications maintenance, repair and operating (“MRO”) and original equipment manufacturers (“OEM”) products, construction materials, and advanced supply chain management and logistics services used primarily in the industrial, construction, utility and commercial, institutional and government markets. We serve over 100,000 customers globally, through approximately 400 full service branches and seven distribution centers located primarily in the United States and Canada, with additional locations in Mexico, United Kingdom, Singapore, China, Australia and the United Arab Emirates and a commercial presence in six other countries.

2. ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Basis of Presentation

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of WESCO have been prepared in accordance with Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in WESCO’s 2010 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC. The December 31, 2010 condensed consolidated balance sheet data was derived from audited financial statements but does not include all disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.

The unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2011, the unaudited condensed consolidated statements of income for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively, and the unaudited condensed consolidated statements of cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively, in the opinion of management, have been prepared on the same basis as the audited consolidated financial statements and include all adjustments necessary for the fair statement of the results of the interim periods. All adjustments reflected in the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are of a normal recurring nature unless indicated. Results for the interim periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

With the exception of fixed rate long-term debt, the reported carrying amounts of WESCO’s financial assets and liabilities approximate their fair values. At September 30, 2011, the par value of WESCO’s fixed rate long-term debt was $495.2 million and the fair value was approximately $640.4 million. At December 31, 2010, the par value of WESCO’s fixed rate long-term debt was $495.2 million and the fair value was approximately $860.2 million. The fair value of WESCO’s long-term debt was estimated based on market price quotes.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In June 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the “FASB”) issued new disclosure guidance related to the presentation of the statement of comprehensive income. This guidance provides an entity the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements; the current option to report other comprehensive income and its components in the statement of changes in stockholders’ equity was eliminated. This accounting standard is effective for periods beginning on or after December 15, 2011. Other than the change in presentation, this accounting standard will not have an impact on WESCO’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

In September 2011, the FASB issued guidance to amend and simplify the rules related to testing goodwill for impairment. The revised guidance allows an entity to make an initial qualitative evaluation, based on the entity’s events and circumstances, to determine whether it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount. The results of this qualitative assessment determine whether it is necessary to perform the currently required two-step impairment test. The new guidance is effective for annual and interim goodwill impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2011. Early adoption is permitted. Adoption of this guidance is not expected to have a material impact on WESCO’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Table of Contents

In September 2011, the FASB issued an accounting update that requires additional qualitative and quantitative disclosures by employers that participate in multi-employer pension plans. The amendments are effective for annual periods for the fiscal years ending after December 15, 2011, with early adoption permitted. Adoption of this guidance is not expected to have a material impact on WESCO’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Other pronouncements issued by the FASB or other authoritative accounting standards groups with future effective dates are either not applicable or are not expected to be significant to WESCO’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

3. STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION

WESCO’s stock-based employee compensation plans are comprised of stock options, stock-settled stock appreciation rights and restricted stock units. Compensation cost for all stock-based awards is measured at fair value on the date of grant, and compensation cost is recognized, net of estimated forfeitures, over the service period for awards expected to vest. The fair value of stock options and stock-settled appreciation rights is determined using the Black-Scholes valuation model. The fair value of restricted stock units is determined by the grant-date closing price of WESCO’s common stock. The forfeiture assumption is based on WESCO’s historical employee behavior that is reviewed on an annual basis. No dividends are assumed.

During the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, WESCO granted the following stock-settled stock appreciation rights and restricted stock units at the following weighted average assumptions:

 

     Three Months Ended

     2011     2010     2011     2010

Expected volatility

     48      49      49      49 

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011, the weighted average fair value per stock-settled appreciation right granted was $16.42 and $26.47, respectively. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2010, the weighted average fair value per stock-settled appreciation right granted was $14.69 and $14.71, respectively. For the nine months ended September 30, 2011, the weighted average fair value per restricted stock unit granted was $60.05. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2010, the weighted average fair value per restricted stock unit granted was $33.05.

WESCO recognized $2.9 million and $4.3 million of non-cash stock-based compensation expense, which is included in selling, general and administrative expenses, for the three months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. WESCO recognized $12.4 million and $11.5 million of non-cash stock-based compensation expense, which is included in selling, general and administrative expenses, for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. As of September 30, 2011, there was $19.7 million of total unrecognized compensation cost related to non-vested stock-based compensation arrangements for all awards previously made, of which approximately $3.0 million is expected to be recognized over the remainder of 2011, $10.0 million in 2012, $6.1 million in 2013 and $0.6 million in 2014.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, the total intrinsic value of awards exercised was $12.0 million and $2.2 million, respectively, and the total amount of cash received from the exercise of options was $0.2 million and $0.7 million, respectively. The tax benefit associated with the exercise of awards for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010 totaled $3.5 million and $0.6 million, respectively, and was recorded to additional capital.

4. EARNINGS PER SHARE

Basic earnings per share are computed by dividing net income by the weighted average common shares outstanding during the periods. Diluted earnings per share are computed by dividing net income by the weighted average common shares and common share equivalents outstanding during the periods. The dilutive effect of common share equivalents is considered in the diluted earnings per share computation using the treasury stock method, which includes consideration of stock-based compensation and convertible debt.

For the three months ended months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, the computation of diluted earnings per share excluded 1.3 million and 2.5 million, respectively, of stock-settled stock appreciation rights at weighted average exercise prices of $62 per share and $47 per share, respectively. For the nine months ended months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, the computation of diluted earnings per share excluded 1.2 million and 2.5 million, respectively, of stock-settled stock appreciation rights at weighted average exercise prices of $62 per share and $47 per share, respectively. These amounts were excluded because their effect would have been antidilutive.

Because of WESCO’s obligation to settle the par value of the 1.75% Convertible Senior Debentures due 2026 (the “2026 Debentures”), the 6.0% Convertible Senior Debentures due 2029 (the “2029 Debentures”) and the previously outstanding 2.625% Convertible Senior Debentures due 2025 (the “2025 Debentures” and together with the 2026 Debentures and 2029 Debentures, the “Debentures”) in cash upon conversion, WESCO is not required to include any shares underlying the Debentures in its diluted weighted average shares outstanding until the average stock price per share for the period exceeds the conversion price of the respective Debentures. At such time, only the number of shares that would be issuable (under the treasury stock method of accounting for share dilution) would be included, which is based upon the amount by which the average stock price exceeds the conversion price. The conversion prices of the 2029 Debentures and 2026 Debentures are $28.87 and $88.15, respectively. Share dilution is limited to a maximum of 11,951,939 shares for the 2029 Debentures and 2,507 shares for the 2026 Debentures. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011, the effect of the Debentures on diluted earnings per share was a decrease of $0.11 and $0.35, respectively. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2010, the effect of the Debentures on diluted earnings per share was a decrease of approximately $0.04 and $0.08, respectively.

5. REVOLVING CREDIT FACILITY

On August 22, 2011, WESCO Distribution, Inc. (“WESCO Distribution”) entered into a new Revolving Credit Facility, which has an aggregate borrowing capacity of $400 million and includes a letter of credit sub-facility of up to $80 million. The Revolving Credit Facility consists of two separate sub-facilities: (i) a U.S. sub-facility with a borrowing limit at any given time of up to $400 million less the amount of outstanding borrowings under the Canadian sub-facility at that time and (ii) a Canadian sub-facility with a borrowing limit of up to $175 million. The new facility also contains an accordion feature, allowing WESCO Distribution to request increases to the borrowing commitments under the facility of up to $100 million in the aggregate. The facility matures in August 2016 and is collateralized by the inventory and certain other assets of WESCO Distribution and certain of its domestic subsidiaries and the inventory, accounts receivable, and certain other assets of WESCO Distribution Canada, L.P. WESCO Distribution’s obligations under the Revolving Credit Facility have been guaranteed by WESCO International, Inc. (“WESCO International”) and by certain of WESCO International’s subsidiaries. The completion of the new facility resulted in $1.8 million of accelerated amortization expense related to the deferred financing fees from the previous facility.

Availability under the facility is based upon the amount of eligible U.S. and Canadian inventory and Canadian receivables applied against certain advance rates. Depending upon the amount of excess availability under the facility, interest will be calculated at LIBOR plus a margin that ranges between 1.50% and 2.00% or at the Alternative Rate (prime rate) plus a margin that ranges between 0.50% and 1.00%. The interest rate margin is reduced by 0.25% if WESCO’s leverage ratio, as calculated under the Revolving Credit Facility, falls below a ratio of 2.5 to 1.0.

As long as the pro forma combined availability for the preceding 60-day period, up to and including the transaction date, under the facility and WESCO Distribution’s accounts receivable securitization facility (the “Receivables Facility”) is greater than $125 million, WESCO is permitted, subject to certain specified conditions, to make acquisitions and repurchase WESCO International’s outstanding capital stock and WESCO outstanding indebtedness. At September 30, 2011, there were no borrowings outstanding under the facility.

6. ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE SECURITIZATION FACILITY

On August 22, 2011, WESCO Distribution entered into an amendment of the Receivables Facility, pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Fourth Amendment to Third Amended and Restated Receivables Purchase Agreement, dated as of April 13, 2009 (the “Agreement”), by and among WESCO Receivables Corp., WESCO Distribution, the Purchasers and Purchaser Agents party thereto and PNC Bank, National Association, as Administrator. The Amendment adds an accordion feature, allowing WESCO Distribution to request increases to the purchase commitments under the Receivables Facility of up to $100 million in the aggregate. The Amendment also lowers the interest rate spread from 1.75% to 1.10%, the commitment fee from 0.75% to 0.55%, and extends the term of the Receivables Facility to August 2014. Substantially all other terms and conditions of the Receivables Facility remain unchanged.

Under the Receivables Facility, WESCO sells, on a continuous basis, an undivided interest in all domestic accounts receivable to WESCO Receivables Corp., a wholly owned special purpose entity (the “SPE”). The SPE sells, without recourse, a senior undivided interest in the receivables to third-party conduits and financial institutions for cash while maintaining a subordinated undivided interest in the receivables, in the form of overcollateralization. WESCO has agreed to continue servicing the sold receivables for the third-party conduits and financial institutions at market rates; accordingly, no servicing asset or liability has been recorded.

The consolidated balance sheets as of September 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010 both reflect $370.0 million of accounts receivable balances legally sold to third parties, as well as borrowings for equal amounts. At September 30, 2011, the interest rate on borrowings under this facility was approximately 1.4%.

7. EMPLOYEE BENEFIT PLANS

A majority of WESCO’s employees are covered by defined contribution retirement savings plans for their services rendered subsequent to WESCO’s formation. WESCO also offers a deferred compensation plan for select individuals. For U.S. participants, WESCO will make contributions in an amount equal to 50% of the participant’s total monthly contributions up to a maximum of 6% of eligible compensation. For Canadian participants, WESCO will make contributions in an amount ranging from 1% to 7% of the participant’s eligible compensation based on years of continuous service. In addition, employer contributions may be made at the discretion of the Board of Directors. For the nine months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, WESCO incurred charges of $19.5 million and $17.9 million, respectively, for all such plans. Contributions are made in cash to all employee retirement savings plan accounts, except for the deferred compensation plan. Employees have the option to transfer balances allocated to their accounts into any of the available investment options, including WESCO common stock.

8. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

As initially reported in WESCO’s 2008 Annual Report on Form 10-K, WESCO is a co-defendant in a lawsuit filed in a state court in Indiana in which a customer alleges that WESCO sold defective products manufactured or remanufactured by others and is seeking monetary damages in the amount of approximately $50 million. The discovery process is on-going in this matter. WESCO has denied any liability, believes that it has meritorious defenses and intends to vigorously defend itself against these allegations. Accordingly, no liability is recorded for this matter as of September 30, 2011.

10. INCOME TAXES

The effective tax rate for the three months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010 was 29.7% and 29.1% respectively, and the effective tax rate for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010 was 29.2% and 28.9%, respectively. WESCO’s three and nine month effective tax rates are lower than the federal statutory rate of 35% primarily due to benefits resulting from the recapitalization of Canadian operations, which are partially offset by nondeductible expenses, state taxes and foreign rate differences. The effective tax rate for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 reflects discrete adjustments totaling $2.1 million, primarily related to changes in uncertain tax positions. The effective tax rate for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 reflects discrete adjustments totaling $1.8 million primarily related to changes in uncertain tax positions.

The total amount of net unrecognized tax benefits was $1.0 million and $3.4 million as of September 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, respectively. If these tax benefits were recognized in the consolidated financial statements, the portion of these amounts that would affect WESCO’s effective tax rate would be $0.5 million and $1.9 million, respectively. During the next twelve months, WESCO anticipates an immaterial change in the net unrecognized tax benefits.

WESCO records interest related to uncertain tax positions as a part of interest expense in the consolidated statement of income. Penalties are recognized as part of income tax expense. During the nine months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, WESCO recognized interest expense of $1.6 million and $0.6 million, respectively. As of September 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, WESCO had an accrued liability for interest related to uncertain tax positions of $11.1 million and $9.5 million, respectively. There were no material penalties recorded during the nine months ended September 30, 2011 or 2010.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the information in the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included herein and WESCO International Inc.’s Financial Statements and Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations included in its 2010 Annual Report on Form 10-K. The matters discussed herein may contain forward-looking statements that are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from expectations. Certain of these risks are set forth in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010, as well as the Company’s other reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Company Overview

WESCO International, Inc., incorporated in 1993 and formed in February 1994 upon acquiring a distribution business from Westinghouse Electric Corporation, is a leading North American distributor of products and provider of advanced supply chain management and logistics services used primarily in the industrial, construction, utility and commercial, institutional and government markets. We serve over 100,000 customers globally, including a large percentage of Fortune 1000 companies, through approximately 400 full-service branches and seven distribution centers located primarily in the United States and Canada, with additional locations in Mexico, United Kingdom, Singapore, China, Australia and the United Arab Emirates and a commercial presence in six other countries. Approximately 82% of our net sales for the first nine months of 2011 were generated from operations in the United States, 15% from Canada and the remainder from other countries.

We sell electrical, industrial, and communications maintenance, repair and operating (“MRO”) and original equipment manufacturers (“OEM”) products, construction materials, and advanced supply chain management and logistics services. Our primary product categories include general electrical and industrial supplies, wire, cable and conduit, data and broadband communications, power distribution equipment, lighting and lighting control systems, control and automation and motors. We distribute approximately 1,000,000 different products from approximately 17,000 suppliers utilizing a highly automated, proprietary electronic procurement and inventory replenishment system. In addition, we offer a comprehensive portfolio of value-added services, which includes supply chain management, logistics and transportation procurement, warehousing and inventory management, as well as kitting, limited assembly of products and system installation. Our value-added capabilities, extensive geographic reach, experienced workforce and broad product and supply chain solutions have enabled us to grow our business and establish a leading position in North America.

Our financial results for the first nine months of 2011 reflect improving conditions in a number of our served markets, successful growth initiatives, the positive impact from recent acquisitions, higher product prices and product costs, effective spending control, and favorable foreign currency exchange rates. Sales increased $803.9 million, or 21.5%, over the same period last year. Cost of goods sold as a percentage of net sales was 80.0% and 80.5% for the first nine months of 2011 and 2010, respectively. Operating income increased by $90.6 million, or 60.1%, primarily from organic growth of the base business and recent acquisitions. Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010 was $141.4 million and $80.7 million, respectively.

Cash Flow

We generated $71.8 million in operating cash flow for the first nine months of 2011. Included in this amount was increased income as a result of improved operating results offset by investments in working capital to fund our growth. Investing activities included payments of $8.2 million for acquisitions and $24.0 million for capital expenditures. Financing activities consisted of borrowings and repayments of $323.5 million related to our Revolving Credit Facility, and borrowings and repayments of $140.0 million related to our accounts receivable securitization facility (the “Receivables Facility”).

Financing Availability

As of September 30, 2011, we had $445.0 million in total available borrowing capacity. The available borrowing capacity under our Revolving Credit Facility, which has a maturity date in August 2016, was $365.0 million, of which $229.4 million was available for U.S. borrowings and $135.6 million was available for Canadian borrowings. The available borrowing capacity under the Receivables Facility, which has a maturity date in August 2014, was $80.0 million. We monitor the depository institutions that hold our cash and cash equivalents on a regular basis, and we believe that we have placed our deposits with creditworthy financial institutions. For further discussion refer to “Liquidity and Capital Resources.”

Net sales in the third quarter of 2011 totaled $1,580.4 million versus $1,324.6 million in the comparable period for 2010, an increase of $255.8 million, or 19.3%, over the same period last year. Sales were positively impacted by growth in a number of our served markets, successful growth initiatives, recent acquisitions, which comprised 6.9% of the sales growth, higher product prices due primarily to the recovery of rising supplier product and commodity prices, and favorable foreign currency exchange rates.

Cost of goods sold for the third quarter of 2011 was $1,264.7 million versus $1,066.8 million for the comparable period in 2010, and cost of goods sold as a percentage of net sales was 80.0% and 80.5% in 2011 and 2010, respectively. The decrease in the cost of goods sold percentage was primarily due to the favorable mix impact from recent acquisitions and a decrease in inventory reserve adjustments.

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses in the third quarter of 2011 totaled $216.2 million versus $190.6 million in last year’s comparable quarter. The increase in SG&A expenses was primarily due to compensation expenses related to the growth in sales and income, and recent acquisitions. As a percentage of net sales, SG&A expenses were 13.7% in the third quarter of 2011 compared to 14.4% in the third quarter of 2010. SG&A expenses increased at a lower rate than sales due to the continued effectiveness of our cost control initiatives and the fixed cost nature of certain SG&A expense components.

SG&A payroll expenses for the third quarter of 2011 of $150.8 million increased by $14.8 million compared to the same quarter in 2010. The increase in payroll expenses was primarily due to an increase in salaries and wages of $10.9 million and an increase in commissions and incentives of $4.7 million, partially offset by a decrease in other payroll of $1.9 million. These increases are primarily due to an increase in headcount, which is the result of both recent acquisitions and organic growth initiatives. Other SG&A payroll related expenses increased $1.1 million.

The remaining SG&A expenses for the third quarter of 2011 of $65.4 million increased by $10.8 million compared to the same quarter in 2010 due to an increase in variable operating expenses associated with the growth in sales.

Depreciation and amortization for the third quarter of 2011 was $7.7 million versus $6.0 million in last year’s comparable quarter. The increase in depreciation and amortization is primarily due to additional amortization expense related to recently acquired intangible assets.

Table of Contents

Interest expense totaled $15.1 million for the third quarter of 2011 versus $13.7 million in last year’s comparable quarter, an increase of 9.7%. Interest expense for the current quarter included a charge of $1.8 million of deferred financing fees as a result of a new revolving credit agreement. Amortization of the debt discount resulted in non-cash interest expense of $0.6 million in the third quarter of 2011 and $1.2 million in the third quarter of 2010. Non-cash interest expense related to uncertain tax positions was $0.3 million in third quarter of 2011 compared to $0.3 million in the third quarter of 2010.

Income tax expense totaled $22.8 million in the third quarter of 2011 compared to $13.8 million in last year’s comparable quarter, and the effective tax rate was 29.7% compared to 29.1% in the same quarter in 2010. The increase in the effective tax rate is primarily due to the increase in current and forecasted taxable income.

For the third quarter of 2011, net income increased by $20.2 million to $53.9 million compared to $33.7 million in the third quarter of 2010. Diluted earnings per share was $1.11 for the third quarter of 2011 compared with $0.74 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2010.

Net sales in the first nine months of 2011 totaled $4,536.2 million versus $3,732.3 million in the comparable period for 2010, an increase of $803.9 million, or 21.5%, over the same period last year. Sales were positively impacted by growth in a number of our served markets, successful growth initiatives, recent acquisitions, which comprised 7.1% of the sales growth, higher product prices due primarily to rising supplier product and commodity prices, and favorable foreign currency exchange rates.

Cost of goods sold for the first nine months of 2011 was $3,627.7 million versus $3,004.1 million for the comparable period in 2010, and cost of goods sold as a percentage of net sales was 80.0% in 2011 and 80.5% in 2010. The decrease in the cost of goods sold percentage was primarily due to the favorable mix impact from recent acquisitions, higher supplier volume rebates and a decrease in inventory reserves.

SG&A expenses in the first nine months of 2011 totaled $644.2 million versus $559.6 million in last year’s comparable period. The increase in SG&A expenses was primarily due to compensation expenses related to the growth in sales and recent acquisitions. As a percentage of net sales, SG&A expenses were 14.2% in the first nine months of 2011 compared to 15.0% in the first nine months of 2010. SG&A expenses increased at a lower rate than sales due to the continued effectiveness of our cost control initiatives and the fixed cost nature of certain SG&A expense components.

SG&A payroll expenses for the first nine months of 2011 of $451.8 million increased by $65.4 million compared to the same period in 2010. The increase in payroll expenses was primarily due to an increase in salaries and wages of $34.1 million, an increase in commissions and incentives of $17.6 million and an increase in benefit costs of $10.2 million. These increases are primarily due to an increase in headcount, which is the result of both recent acquisitions and organic growth initiatives. Other SG&A payroll related expenses increased $3.5 million.

Table of Contents

The remaining SG&A expenses for the first nine months of 2011 of $192.4 million increased by approximately $19.2 million compared to the same period in 2010 due to an increase in variable operating expenses associated with the growth in sales.

Depreciation and amortization for the first nine months of 2011 was $22.9 million versus $17.7 million in last year’s comparable period. The increase in depreciation and amortization is primarily due to additional amortization expense related to recently acquired intangible assets.

Interest expense totaled $41.7 million for the first nine months of 2011 versus $41.7 million in last year’s comparable period. Interest expense for the first nine months of 2011 included a charge of $1.8 million of deferred financing fees as a result of a new revolving credit agreement. Amortization of the debt discount resulted in non-cash interest expense of $1.8 million in 2011 and $3.7 million in 2010. Non-cash interest expense related to uncertain tax positions was $1.6 million in 2011 compared to $0.6 million in 2010.

There was no other income recorded for the first nine months of 2011. Other income, comprised of equity income from the LADD joint venture, totaled $4.3 million for the first nine months of 2010. The cessation of other income is due to the sale of our 40% interest in the LADD joint venture on June 7, 2010 to Deutsch Engineered Connecting Devices, Inc. (“Deutsch”). We accounted for our investment in the LADD joint venture on an equity basis, and earnings were reported as other income in the consolidated statement of income. We received equity income through May 31, 2010 and distributions through April 20, 2010, the date Deutsch notified us of its exercise of its option to purchase our 40% interest in the LADD joint venture.

Income tax expense totaled $58.4 million in the first nine months of 2011 compared to $32.8 million in the first nine months of 2010, and the effective tax rate was 29.2% compared to 28.9% in the same period in 2010. The increase in the effective tax rate is primarily due to the increase in current and forecasted taxable income.

For the first nine months of 2011, net income increased by $60.7 million to $141.4 million compared to $80.7 million in the first nine months of 2010. Diluted earnings per share was $2.84 for the first nine months of 2011 compared to $1.79 per diluted share for the first nine months of 2010.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Total assets were $3.1 billion at September 30, 2011, compared to $2.8 billion at December 31, 2010. The $240.6 million increase in total assets was primarily attributable to an increase in accounts receivable of $157.8 million and an increase in inventory of $42.6 million. Total liabilities at September 30, 2011 compared to December 31, 2010 increased by $105.7 million to approximately $1.8 billion. Contributing to the increase in total liabilities was an increase in accounts payable of $109.1 million. Stockholders’ equity increased 11.7% to $1,283.5 million at September 30, 2011, compared with $1,148.6 million at December 31, 2010, primarily as a result of net earnings of $141.4 million, stock-based compensation expense of $12.4 million, and a negative impact from foreign currency translation of $16.7 million.

Our liquidity needs generally arise from working capital requirements, capital expenditures, acquisitions and debt service obligations. As of September 30, 2011, we had $365.0 million in available borrowing capacity under our Revolving Credit Facility, which, combined with our $80.0 million of available borrowing capacity under our Receivables Facility and our invested cash, provided us with liquidity of $486.1 million. We believe cash provided by operations and financing activities will be adequate to cover our current operational and business needs.

We communicate on a regular basis with our lenders regarding our financial and working capital performance and liquidity position. We were in compliance with all covenants and restrictions as of September 30, 2011.

We did not note any conditions or events during the third quarter of 2011 requiring an interim evaluation of impairment of goodwill. We will perform our annual impairment testing of goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets during the fourth quarter of 2011.

Over the next several quarters, we expect to maintain working capital productivity, and it is expected that excess cash will be directed primarily to debt reduction and acquisitions. Our near term focus will be managing our working capital as we experience sales growth and maintaining ample liquidity and credit availability. We believe our balance sheet and ability to generate ample cash flow provides us with a durable business model and should allow us to fund our expansion needs and growth initiatives.

Cash Flow

Operating Activities. Cash provided by operating activities for the first nine months of 2011 totaled $71.8 million compared with $75.5 million of cash generated for the first nine months of 2010. Cash provided by operating activities in the first nine months of 2011 included net income of $141.4 million and adjustments to net income totaling $46.8 million. Other sources of cash included an increase in accounts payable of $110.6 million resulting from the increase in purchasing activity. Primary uses of cash during the first nine months of 2011 included: $154.7 million for the increase in trade and other receivables resulting from the increase in sales; $44.2 million for the increase in inventory; $24.4 million for the decrease in other current and noncurrent liabilities; $2.7 million for the decrease in accrued payroll and benefit costs resulting from the payment of the 2010 management incentive compensation and 401(k) discretionary contribution; and a decrease in prepaid expenses and other current assets of $1.0 million. During the first nine months of 2010, primary sources of cash were net income of $80.7 million and adjustments to net income totaling $31.2 million, an increase in accounts payable of $118.4 million, an increase in other current and noncurrent liabilities of $11.7 million, an increase in accrued payroll and benefit costs of $20.6 million, and an increase in prepaid expenses and other current assets of $3.4 million. Cash used by operating activities in the first nine months of 2010 included: $149.6 million for the increase in trade and other receivables; and $40.9 million for the increase in inventory.

Investing Activities. Net cash used by investing activities for the first nine months of 2011 was $32.0 million, compared with $35.5 million of net cash provided during the first nine months of 2010. Included in 2010 were proceeds from the sale of our 40% interest in the LADD joint venture. Proceeds included $40.0 million for our 40% interest, plus $15.0 million for the collection of a promissory note. Investing activities for the first nine months of 2011 and 2010 also included acquisition payments of $8.2 million and $14.3 million, respectively, and capital expenditures of $24.0 million and $10.1 million, respectively.

Financing Activities. Net cash provided by financing activities for the first nine months of 2011 was $5.2 million, compared with $122.9 million of net cash used during the first nine months of 2010. During the first nine months of 2011, borrowings and repayments of long-term debt of $323.5 million were made under our Revolving Credit Facility. Borrowings and repayments of $140.0 million were applied to our Receivables Facility, and there were repayments of $1.3 million to our mortgage financing facility. During the first nine months of 2010, borrowings and repayments of long-term debt of $356.0 million and $534.5 million, respectively, were made under our Revolving Credit Facility. Borrowings and repayments of $360.0 million and $295.0 million, respectively, were applied to our Receivables Facility, and there were repayments of $1.2 million to our mortgage financing facility.

Contractual Cash Obligations and Other Commercial Commitments

There were no material changes in our contractual obligations and other commercial commitments that would require an update to the disclosure provided in our 2010 Annual Report on Form 10-K. Management believes that cash generated from operations, together with amounts available under our Revolving Credit Facility and the Receivables Facility, will be sufficient to meet our working capital, capital expenditures and other cash requirements for the foreseeable future. However, there can be no assurances that this will continue to be the case.

Inflation

The rate of inflation affects different commodities, the cost of products purchased, and ultimately the pricing of our different products and product classes to our customers. Our pricing related to inflation was approximately 3.3% of our sales revenue for the first nine months of 2011. Historically, price changes from suppliers have been consistent with inflation and have not had a material impact on the results of operations. Recently, prices of certain commodities have increased much faster than general inflation; however, we expect to pass through the majority of these increases to customers.

Seasonality

Our operating results are not significantly affected by seasonal factors. Sales during the first and fourth quarters are generally 1 to 3% below the sales of the second and third quarters, due to a reduced level of activity during the winter months of November through February. Sales typically increase beginning in March, with slight fluctuations per month through October. During periods of economic expansion or contraction, our sales by quarter have varied significantly.

When used in this context, the words “anticipates,” “plans,” “believes,” “estimates,” “intends,” “expects,” “projects,” “will” and similar expressions may identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain such words. Such statements including, but not limited to, our statements regarding business strategy, growth strategy, competitive strengths, productivity and profitability enhancement, competition, new product and service introductions and liquidity and capital resources are based on management’s beliefs, as well as on assumptions made by and information currently available to, management, and involve various risks and uncertainties, some of which are beyond our control.

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

Part II - Other Information

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

From time to time, a number of lawsuits and claims have been or may be asserted against us relating to the conduct of our business, including routine litigation relating to commercial and employment matters. The outcome of any litigation cannot be predicted with certainty, and some lawsuits may be determined adversely to us. However, management does not believe, based on information presently available, that the ultimate outcome of any such pending matters is likely to have a material adverse effect on our financial condition or liquidity, although the resolution in any quarter of one or more of these matters may have a material adverse effect on our results of operations for that period.

As initially reported in our 2008 Annual Report on Form 10-K, we are a co-defendant in a lawsuit filed in a state court in Indiana in which a customer alleges that we sold defective products manufactured or remanufactured by others and is seeking monetary damages in the amount of approximately $50 million. The discovery process is on-going in this matter. We have denied any liability, continue to believe that we have meritorious defenses and intend to vigorously defend ourselves against these allegations. Accordingly, no liability is recorded for this matter as of September 30, 2011.
