For the fiscal fourth quarter, revenue from continuing operations was $2.47 billion, an increase of 12.3% compared with $2.2 billion a year earlier.

Revenue for the fiscal year of $8.61 billion increased 11.6% from $7.72 billion in the previous year.

SYNNEX said revenue in the fiscal fourth quarter and the full fiscal year reflects the impact of the previously announced presentation of certain types of services and extended warranty contracts beginning in fiscal 2010.

Both our distribution and GBS business segments contributed to our achievements," said Kevin Murai, president and CEO.
