INGRAM MICRO INC.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(In 000s, except per share data)
(Unaudited)

Note 1 – Organization and Basis of Presentation
Ingram Micro Inc. and its subsidiaries are primarily engaged in the distribution of information technology (“IT”) products, supply chain services and mobile device lifecycle services worldwide. Ingram Micro Inc. and its subsidiaries operate in North America; Europe; Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa; and Latin America.
The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Ingram Micro Inc. and its subsidiaries. Unless the context otherwise requires, the use of the terms “Ingram Micro,” “we,” “us” and “our” in these notes to the consolidated financial statements refers to Ingram Micro Inc. and its subsidiaries. These consolidated financial statements have been prepared by us, without audit, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements contain all material adjustments (consisting of only normal, recurring adjustments) necessary to fairly state our consolidated financial position as of September 27, 2014, our consolidated results of operations and comprehensive income for the thirteen and thirty-nine weeks ended September 27, 2014 and September 28, 2013 and our consolidated cash flows for the thirty-nine weeks ended September 27, 2014 and September 28, 2013. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. As permitted under the applicable rules and regulations of the SEC, these consolidated financial statements do not include all disclosures and footnotes normally included with annual consolidated financial statements and, accordingly, should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto, included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC for the year ended December 28, 2013. The consolidated results of operations for the thirteen and thirty-nine weeks ended September 27, 2014 may not be indicative of the consolidated results of operations that can be expected for the full year.
Historically, our reporting units coincided with the geographic operating segments of our IT product distribution business, including North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Latin America. In the fourth quarter of 2012, we acquired BrightPoint Inc., or BrightPoint, a global leader in providing device lifecycle services to the wireless industry, and added this as a reporting segment. Since the acquisition of BrightPoint, we have continued to integrate the BrightPoint operations into our existing infrastructure, including distribution centers, offices, ERP systems and shared service centers. As we approach completion of this integration, the legacy BrightPoint results of operations are included in our geographic segments, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Latin America, commencing in the second quarter of 2014. As a result, we have retrospectively presented the segment information included in Note 11 to conform to the new presentation. The measure of segment profit is income from operations.
Book Overdrafts
Book overdrafts of $514,198 and $347,837 as of September 27, 2014 and December 28, 2013, respectively, represent checks issued on disbursement bank accounts but not yet paid by such banks. These amounts are classified as accounts payable in our consolidated balance sheet. We typically fund these overdrafts through normal collections of funds or transfers from other bank balances at other financial institutions. Under the terms of our facilities with the banks, the respective financial institutions are not legally obligated to honor the book overdraft balances as of September 27, 2014 and December 28, 2013, or any balance on any given date.    
Trade Accounts Receivable Factoring Programs
We have several uncommitted factoring programs under which trade accounts receivable of several large customers may be sold, without recourse, to financial institutions. Available capacity under these programs is dependent on the amount of trade accounts receivable already sold into these programs and the financial institutions’ willingness to purchase such receivables. At September 27, 2014 and December 28, 2013, we had a total of $318,322, and $381,451, respectively, of trade accounts receivable sold to and held by financial institutions under these programs. Factoring fees of $1,058 and $833 incurred for the thirteen weeks ended September 27, 2014 and September 28, 2013, respectively, and $3,276 and $1,841 for the thirty-nine weeks ended ended September 27, 2014 and September 28, 2013, respectively, related to the sale of trade accounts receivable under these facilities are included in “other” in the other expense (income) section of our consolidated statement of income.

Note 2 – Share Repurchase Program
Our Board of Directors has authorized a $400,000 share repurchase program that expires on October 27, 2015, of which $124,095 was remaining for repurchase at September 27, 2014. Under this program, we may repurchase shares in the open market and through privately negotiated transactions. Our repurchases are funded with available borrowing capacity and cash. The timing and amount of specific repurchase transactions will depend upon market conditions, corporate considerations and applicable legal and regulatory requirements. We account for repurchased shares of common stock as treasury stock. Treasury shares are recorded at cost and are included as a component of stockholders’ equity in our consolidated balance sheet. We have issued shares of common stock out of our cumulative balance of treasury shares. Such shares are issued to certain of our associates upon the exercise of their options or vesting of their equity awards under the Ingram Micro Inc. 2011 Incentive Plan, as amended (the "2011 Incentive Plan") (see Note 4). We did not repurchase shares during the thirty-nine weeks ended September 27, 2014. Our treasury stock issuance activity for the thirty-nine weeks ended September 27, 2014 is summarized in the table below:

Note 3 – Earnings Per Share
We report a dual presentation of Basic Earnings per Share (“Basic EPS”) and Diluted Earnings per Share (“Diluted EPS”). Basic EPS excludes dilution and is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the reported period. Diluted EPS uses the treasury stock method to compute the potential dilution that could occur if stock-based awards and other commitments to issue common stock were exercised.
The computation of Basic EPS and Diluted EPS is as follows:

There were approximately 0 and 79 stock-based awards for the thirteen weeks ended September 27, 2014 and September 28, 2013, respectively, and 651 and 657 stock-based awards for the thirty-nine weeks ended September 27, 2014 and September 28, 2013, respectively, that were not included in the computation of Diluted EPS because the exercise price was greater than the average market price of the Class A Common Stock during the respective periods, thereby having an antidilutive effect.

Note 4 – Stock-Based Compensation
We currently have a single stock incentive plan, the Ingram Micro Inc. 2011 Incentive Plan amended during the second quarter of 2013 (the "2011 Incentive Plan"), for the granting of equity-based incentive awards. We grant time- and/or performance-vested restricted stock and/or restricted stock units, in addition to stock options, to key employees and members of our Board of Directors. The performance measures for vesting of restricted stock and restricted stock units for grants to management for the

The remainder of the shares are time-based grants.

Note 7 – Acquisitions, Goodwill and Intangible Assets
During the nine months ended September 27, 2014, we completed the acquisitions of Rollouts, Inc. ("Rollouts"), Dat Repair GMBH ("DRG"), Global Mobility Products ("GMP"), and Pinnacle Service Solutions ("Pinnacle") for aggregate cash of $18,880 and an aggregate estimated future earn out payment of $4,243, of which $5,383 was preliminarily allocated to goodwill and $15,000 to acquired intangible assets. The goodwill recognized in connection with these acquisitions is primarily attributable to the assembled workforce and our expectation of expanding our mobility and supply chain solutions portfolio. The acquired entities have been included in our consolidated results of operations since the respective acquisition dates.
Pro forma results of operations have not been presented for the 2014 acquisitions because the historical results of these acquisitions, individually and in aggregate, were not material to our consolidated results of operations.
Finite-lived identifiable intangible assets are amortized over their remaining estimated lives ranging up to 13 years with the predominant amounts having lives of 3 to 10 years. The gross and net carrying amounts of finite-lived identifiable intangible assets are as follows:

Note 8 – Reorganization Costs
2014 Actions
In order to further enhance our ability to innovate and respond to market needs, on February 13, 2014 we announced a plan to proceed with a global organizational effectiveness program that involves the following three aspects:

1.
Aligning and leveraging our infrastructure globally with our evolving businesses, opportunities and resources;
2.
De-layering and simplifying the organization to enable us to be more nimble, responsive and collaborative; and
3.
Maintaining investments in expertise and capabilities to continue to transform our business mix in faster growing, higher margin businesses.

11

INGRAM MICRO INC.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(In 000s, except per share data)

As a result of the organizational effectiveness program and continued acquisition integration activities, we recognized reorganization charges of $17,300 for the thirteen weeks ended September 27, 2014 primarily related to employee termination benefits. For the thirty-nine weeks ended September 27, 2014 we recognized reorganization charges of $71,749 primarily related to employee termination benefits and $7,639 primarily related to a previously acquired trade name that was written off as a result of the integration of certain operations under the Ingram Micro brand.
2013 Actions
During the third quarter of 2013, we announced a plan to reduce headcount in Germany to respond to the market environment resulting in reorganization charges primarily related to employee termination benefits. In addition, we exited a BrightPoint facility in the U.S. resulting in reorganization charges primarily related to facility exit costs and employee termination benefits.
During 2013, we began integrating certain BrightPoint operations into Ingram Micro, resulting in headcount reductions and facility exit costs. We continued to move certain transaction-oriented service and support functions in Europe to our European shared services center and exited a portion of one of our Australian offices. Associated with these actions, we incurred reorganization costs primarily related to employee termination benefits throughout our regions and facility exit costs in Australia.
2012 Actions and Prior Actions
In 2012 and earlier, we implemented headcount reductions primarily in Australia and New Zealand to better align our operating expenses with each country’s then lower sales volumes. Additionally, we moved certain transactions-oriented service and support functions to shared service centers in Asia-Pacific and Europe. We closed our in-country Argentina operations and are now servicing this market through our export operations in Miami. Associated with these actions, we incurred net reorganization costs related to employee termination benefits. We also launched various other outsourcing and optimization plans to improve operating efficiencies and better align our level of operating expenses with sales volumes, resulting in headcount reductions in certain operations in North America, Europe and Latin America. While these reorganization actions were completed prior to the periods included herein, future cash outlays are required for future lease payments related to exited facilities.

Note 10 – Income Taxes

Our effective tax rate for the thirteen weeks ended September 27, 2014 was 29.8% compared to 30.5% for the thirteen weeks ended September 28, 2013. For the thirty-nine weeks ended September 27, 2014 and September 28, 2013, our effective tax rate was 34.0% and 29.9%, respectively. Under U.S. accounting rules for income taxes, quarterly effective tax rates may vary significantly depending on the actual operating results in the various tax jurisdictions, as well as changes in the valuation allowance related to the expected recovery of deferred tax assets. In 2014, our effective tax rate was negatively impacted by approximately one and four percentage points as a result of a portion of reorganization costs recorded in the thirteen weeks and the thirty-nine weeks ended September 27, 2014, respectively, in jurisdictions under valuation allowance or where the cost is not deductible.

14

INGRAM MICRO INC.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(In 000s, except per share data)

The thirteen weeks ended September 27, 2014 included net discrete benefits of approximately $6,618 which represent 6.4 percentage points of the effective tax rate, driven primarily by the release of unrealized tax benefits due to the expiration of the statute of limitations in various tax jurisdictions.
The thirteen weeks ended September 28, 2013 included net discrete benefits of approximately $4,570, or 4.0 percentage points of the effective tax rate, driven primarily by the release of a previously recorded reserve against the deferred tax assets of one of our foreign operating units.
The thirty-nine weeks ended September 27, 2014 included net discrete benefits of approximately $9,143 or 4.1 percentage points of the effective rate, which includes the discrete items noted above for the thirteen weeks ended September 27, 2014, as well as $2,525 of net discrete benefits primarily related to positive adjustments to certain deferred tax asset benefits.
The thirty-nine weeks ended September 28, 2013 included net discrete benefits of approximately $11,521, or 4.1 percentage points of the effective tax rate, which includes the discrete items noted above for the thirteen weeks ended September 28, 2013, as well as net discrete benefits of $6,951 recorded primarily due to a change in estimate of the amount of BrightPoint acquisition costs deductible for tax purposes.
Our effective tax rate differed from the U.S. federal statutory rate of 35% during these periods primarily due to the items noted above, as well as the relative mix of earnings or losses within the tax jurisdictions in which we operate, such as: (a) earnings in lower-tax jurisdictions for which no U.S. taxes have been provided because such earnings are planned to be reinvested indefinitely outside the United States; (b) losses in certain jurisdictions in which we are not able to record a tax benefit; and (c) changes in the valuation allowance on deferred tax assets.
At September 27, 2014, we had gross unrecognized tax benefits of $26,752 compared to $35,398 at December 28, 2013, representing a net decrease of $8,646 during the thirty-nine weeks ended September 27, 2014. Substantially all of the gross unrecognized tax benefits, if recognized, would impact our effective tax rate in the period of recognition.
We recognize interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits in income tax expense. In addition to the gross unrecognized tax benefits identified above, the interest and penalties recorded to date by us totaled $7,421 and $7,333 at September 27, 2014 and December 28, 2013, respectively.
Our future effective tax rate will continue to be affected by changes in the relative mix of taxable income and losses in the tax jurisdictions in which we operate, changes in the valuation of deferred tax assets, or changes in tax laws or interpretations thereof. In addition, our income tax returns are subject to continuous examination by the IRS and other tax authorities. The IRS has concluded its examinations of tax years prior to tax year 2010. In 2013, the IRS initiated its examination of tax years 2010 to 2011. It is possible that within the next twelve months, ongoing tax examinations in the United States and several of our foreign jurisdictions may be resolved, that new tax exams may commence and that other issues may be effectively settled. However, we do not expect our assessment of unrecognized tax benefits to change significantly over that time.

(a) Costs are primarily for legal, consulting and other costs associated with the global organizational effectiveness program (see Note 8), the integration of BrightPoint, acquisitions-related costs and other transition costs incurred for certain executives, charged to SG&A expenses. Offsetting these costs are gains of $6,600 and $29,500 related to the settlement of a class action lawsuit against the manufacturers of LCD flat panel displays, which was recorded as a reduction of SG&A expense in the first quarter of 2014 and third quarter of 2013, respectively (see Note 13).

Note 12 – Commitments and Contingencies
Our Brazilian subsidiary has received a number of tax assessments including the following: (1) a 2005 Federal import tax assessment claiming certain commercial taxes totaling Brazilian Reais 12,714 ($5,230 at September 27, 2014 exchange rates) were due on the import of software acquired from international vendors for the period January through September of 2002; (2) a 2007 Sao Paulo municipal tax assessment claiming Brazilian Reais 29,111 ($11,975 at September 27, 2014 exchange rates) of service taxes were due on the resale of acquired software covering years 2002 through 2006, plus Brazilian Reais 25,972 ($10,684 at September 27, 2014 exchange rates) of associated penalties; (3) a 2011 Federal income tax assessment, a portion of which claims statutory penalties totaling Brazilian Reais 15,900 ($6,541 at September 27, 2014 exchange rates) for delays in providing certain electronic files during the audit of tax years 2008 and 2009, which was conducted through the course of 2011; (4) a 2012 Sao Paulo municipal tax assessment claiming Brazilian Reais 2,996 ($1,232 at September 27, 2014 exchange rates) of service taxes due on the importation of software covering the year 2007 plus Brazilian Reais 1,498 ($616 at September 27, 2014 exchange rates) of associated penalties; and (5) a 2013 Sao Paulo municipal tax assessment claiming Brazilian Reais 10,725 ($4,412 at September 27, 2014 exchange rates) of service taxes due on the importation of software covering the years 2008, 2009, 2010 and January through May 2011 plus Brazilian Reais 5,362 ($2,206 at September 27, 2014 exchange rates) of associated penalties. While we will continue to vigorously pursue administrative and, if applicable, judicial action in defending against the 2005 Federal import tax assessment, we continue to maintain a reserve for the full tax amount assessed at September 27, 2014 in item (1) above. After working with our advisors, we believe the other matters noted above do not represent a probable loss.
In addition to the amounts described above, incremental charges for possible penalties, interest and inflationary adjustments for these matters could be imposed in an amount up to Brazilian Reais 230,450 ($94,796 at September 27, 2014 exchange rates). We believe we have good defenses against each matter and do not believe it is probable that we will suffer a material loss for these matters.
There are various other claims, lawsuits and pending actions against us incidental to our operations. It is the opinion of management that the ultimate resolution of these matters will not have a material adverse effect on our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows. However, we can make no assurances that we will ultimately be successful in our defense of any of these matters.
As is customary in the IT distribution industry, we have arrangements with certain finance companies that provide inventory-financing facilities for their customers. In conjunction with certain of these arrangements, we have agreements with the finance companies that would require us to repurchase certain inventory, which might be repossessed from the customers by the finance companies. Due to various reasons, including among other factors, the lack of information regarding the amount of saleable inventory purchased from us still on hand with the customer at any point in time, repurchase obligations relating to inventory cannot be reasonably estimated. Repurchases of inventory by us under these arrangements have been insignificant to date.
We have guarantees to third parties that provide financing to a limited number of our customers. Net sales under these arrangements accounted for less than one percent of our consolidated net sales for each of the periods presented. The guarantees require us to reimburse the third party for defaults by these customers up to an aggregate of $6,000. The fair value of these guarantees has been recognized as cost of sales to these customers and is included in accrued expenses.

Note 13 – Legal Settlement
We were a claimant in a class action proceeding seeking damages from certain manufacturers of LCD flat panel displays.  On July 12, 2013, the federal district judge overseeing the proceeding issued a preliminary order approving a plan of distribution to the class claimants.  In July 2013, we received a distribution of $29,500, net of all attorney fees and expenses, which was reflected as a reduction of selling, general and administrative expenses in the third quarter of 2013. In January 2014, the federal district judge overseeing the proceeding issued an order for the final distribution of the settlement fund. Accordingly, in February 2014, we received an additional $6,600 from the remaining escrowed settlement fund, which we recorded as a reduction of selling, general and administrative expenses in the first quarter of 2014.

Note 14 - New Accounting Standards
In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standard Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which requires a reporting entity to recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The guidance in this ASU affects any entity that either enters into contracts with customers to transfer goods or services or enters into contracts for the transfer of nonfinancial assets unless those contracts are within the scope of other standards. This standard will be effective for us beginning January 1, 2017, the first day of fiscal year 2017. We are currently assessing the impact of this new guidance.
In August 2014, the FASB issued an amendment to the accounting guidance related to the evaluation of an entity's ability to continue as a going concern. The amendment establishes management's responsibility to evaluate whether there is substantial doubt about an entity's ability to continue as a going concern in connection with preparing financial statements for each annual and interim reporting period. The update also gives guidance to determine whether to disclose information about relevant conditions and events when there is substantial doubt about an entity's ability to continue as a going concern. This guidance will be effective for us as of December 15, 2016. The new guidance is not expected to have an impact on our financial position, results of operations, or cash flows.

Overview of Our Business
Ingram Micro helps businesses realize the promise of technology by delivering a full spectrum of global technology and supply chain services to businesses around the world. Ingram Micro's global infrastructure and deep expertise in technology solutions, supply chain, cloud and mobility help to enable its business partners to operate efficiently and successfully in the markets they serve. We are the largest wholesale technology distributor and a global leader in IT supply-chain and mobile device lifecycle services based on revenues. We offer a broad range of IT products and supply chain solutions and help generate demand and create efficiencies for our customers and suppliers around the world. Our results of operations have been, and will continue to be, directly affected by the conditions in the economy in general. Historically, our margins have been impacted by pressures from price competition and declining average selling prices, as well as changes in vendor terms and conditions, including, but not limited to, variations in vendor rebates and incentives, our ability to return inventory to vendors, and time periods qualifying for price protection. We expect competitive pricing pressures and restrictive vendor terms and conditions to continue in the foreseeable future. In addition, our margins have and may continue to be impacted by our inventory levels, which are based on projections of future demand, product availability, product acceptance and marketability, and market conditions. Any sudden decline in demand and/or rapid technological changes in products could cause us to have a charge for excess and/or obsolete inventory. We continue to monitor and refine our pricing strategies, inventory management processes and vendor program processes to respond and to mitigate the impact of these factors. In addition, we continuously monitor and work to change, as appropriate, certain terms, conditions and credit offered to our customers to reflect those being imposed by our vendors, to recover costs and/or to facilitate sales opportunities. Our business also requires significant levels of working capital primarily to finance trade accounts receivable and inventory. We have historically relied on, and continue to rely heavily on, trade credit from vendors, available cash, debt and factoring of trade accounts receivable for our working capital needs.
While the primary industry in which we operate is characterized by narrow gross profit as a percentage of net sales, or gross margin, and narrow income from operations as a percentage of net sales, or operating margin, we strive to improve our profitability through diversification of product offerings, including our presence in adjacent product categories, such as automatic identification/data capture and point-of-sale, or AIDC/POS, enterprise computing and data center. Additionally, we are expanding our capabilities in what we believe are faster growing and higher margin service oriented businesses such as mobility device life cycle services, supply chain solutions and cloud. Over the past few years, we have complemented our internal growth initiatives with strategic business acquisitions. In 2014, we completed three additional strategic acquisitions: Pinnacle Service Solutions, or Pinnacle, and DAT Repair GMBH, or DRG, both in April 2014, and Global Mobility Products, or GMP, in May 2014, which will each provide us with a corridor into a rapidly growing and high-value mobility and supply chain services market. In September 2013, we also completed the strategic acquisitions of Softcom Technologies, Inc., or Softcom, which enhances our cloud offerings roadmap and aggregation platform, and Cloudblue Technologies, Inc., or Cloudblue, which expands our supply-chain capabilities and solutions offerings. In addition, we acquired Shipwire, Inc., or Shipwire, in December 2013, which gives our existing portfolio of products and services an enhanced ability to access the large and growing e-commerce fulfillment market. Although we expect that these acquisitions and our organic investments will expand our capabilities in these areas, service revenues currently represent less than 10% of total net sales for all periods presented.
We manage our business through continuous cost controls and process and efficiency enhancements. This may also include, from time to time, reorganization actions to further enhance productivity and profitability and could result in the recognition of reorganization costs or impairment of assets.

21





Management's Discussion and Analysis Continued

To further enhance our ability to innovate and respond to market needs with greater speed and efficiency, in February 2014 we announced a plan to proceed with a global organizational effectiveness program that involves the following three critical aspects:

1.
Aligning and leveraging our infrastructure globally with our evolving businesses, opportunities and resources;
2.
De-layering and simplifying the organization to enable us to be more nimble, responsive and collaborative; and
3.
Maintaining investments in expertise and capabilities to continue to transform our business mix in faster growing, higher margin businesses.
We expect our alignment and de-layering programs to generate annual savings between $80,000 and $100,000. The majority of the cost savings began to take effect in the second half of 2014 and the full run rate of savings is expected to be realized in 2015. We have incurred reorganization as well as transition and other related costs aggregating $89,652 for the thirty-nine weeks ended September 27, 2014, which includes $68,020 related to employee termination benefits associated with this program, $14,104 of transition and integration costs and $7,528 for a previously acquired trade name that was written off as a result of the integration of certain operations under the Ingram Micro brand.
We are in the process of migrating our operations from our legacy proprietary enterprise resource planning, or ERP, system that was developed in the late-1980s to SAP in a phased, country-by-country approach. We have deployed SAP in several operations globally beginning in 2009 with our most recent deployment in early 2013 in Colombia. Due to challenges in our earlier round of implementations, additional deployments have been on hold as we continue to address certain improvements within the system to better address our internal and customer needs. We are continuing to evaluate our schedule for deploying the ERP system in additional locations. While we will adjust the deployment schedule as required to best serve our customers, we can make no assurances that we will not have further disruptions, delays and/or negative business impacts from forthcoming deployments.
We sell finished products purchased from many vendors but generated approximately 14% of our consolidated net sales for the thirteen weeks ended September 27, 2014, and approximately 14% of our consolidated net sales for the thirteen weeks ended September 28, 2013 from products purchased from Hewlett-Packard Company.
For the thirty-nine weeks ended September 27, 2014, we generated approximately 15% of our consolidated net sales, and for the thirty-nine weeks ended September 28, 2013, approximately 15% of our consolidated net sales from products purchased from Hewlett-Packard Company.
Historically, our reporting units coincided with the geographic operating segments of our IT product distribution business, including North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America. In the fourth quarter of 2012, we acquired BrightPoint Inc., or BrightPoint, a global leader in providing devices lifecycle services to the wireless industry, and added this as a reporting segment. Since the acquisition of BrightPoint, we have continued to integrate the BrightPoint operations into our existing infrastructure, including distribution centers, offices, ERP systems and shared service centers. As we approach completion of this integration, discrete financial information for the legacy BrightPoint operations is no longer available and, therefore, we have included the results of BrightPoint into our geographic segments, of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Latin America. As a result, we have retrospectively reclassified the consolidated financial statements to conform to the new presentation. The measure of segment profit is income from operations.

Management's Discussion and Analysis Continued




The 10.7% increase in our consolidated net sales for the thirteen weeks ended September 27, 2014, or third quarter of 2014, compared to the thirteen weeks ended September 28, 2013, or third quarter of 2013, largely reflected strong growth in North America, Europe and Latin America, partially offset by a decline in Asia-Pacific, which was primarily driven by significantly lower mobility business handset sales into Indonesia and continued weakness in China. The translation impact of foreign currencies relative to the U.S. dollar did not have a material impact on our consolidated sales.
The 19.3% increase in North American net sales in the third quarter of 2014 compared to the third quarter of 2013 was primarily driven by triple digit growth in our mobility business, which benefited from our new Verizon Wireless retail and dealer channel business and growth in both logistics and repairs, supported by new customer wins in 2014 and higher volume sales with existing customers. In addition, our technology and other solutions business grew in the high single digits, primarily driven by strength in systems and networking.
The 9.3% increase in European net sales includes the translation impact of stronger foreign currencies relative to the U.S. dollar which had a positive impact on net sales of approximately two percentage points and reflects a solid demand environment across most of Europe. Led by solid growth across several countries, our European technology and other solutions business saw mid-single digit growth in local currency, with strength in consumer and retail markets particularly in Germany, Spain and Italy. European mobility sales grew in double digits in local currency led by strong smartphone sales in Germany and Sweden.
The 3.7% decrease in our Asia-Pacific net sales includes the translation impact of stronger foreign currencies relative to the U.S. dollar which had a positive impact on net sales of approximately one percentage point. Asia-Pacific mobility revenue was down low double digits in local currency, driven by the decline of approximately $120,000 in mobility business handset sales into Indonesia related to market share losses by a large original equipment manufacturer ("OEM"), partially offset by strong growth in India, Australia and Singapore. Our Asia-Pacific technology and other solutions business was flat in local currency. Solid local currency growth in Australia, Singapore and India was offset by lower sales in China where revenue declined due to continued softness in demand for some of the vendor products we carry.
The 17.0% increase in Latin American net sales includes the translation impact of weaker foreign currencies relative to the U.S. dollar which had a negative impact on net sales of approximately two percentage points. The local currency sales growth was largely driven by robust growth in Brazil and Mexico driven by strength in advanced solutions, as well as accelerated growth in our newly established mobility business due to expansion into multiple countries in this region. Miami export continued to experience slower retail sales.
Gross profit increased by $47,256, or 7.9%, in the third quarter of 2014 compared to the third quarter of 2013, benefiting from the strong sales growth noted above. However, gross margin decreased fifteen basis points driven by a greater mix of high volume, lower gross margin products, particularly in lower margin mobility distribution. Revenue mix in North America also led to lower gross margin in our technology solutions business versus last year. This decrease was partially offset by increases in mobility services, advanced solutions, supply chain services and cloud, which are generally higher margin product lines.
Total selling, general and administrative expenses, or SG&A expenses, increased $51,751, or 11.7%, in the third quarter of 2014 compared to the third quarter of 2013. The current year quarter included integration, transition and other costs of $9,199 compared to $3,843 of such costs in the prior year. The increase in SG&A expenses also reflects our acquisitions, which added approximately $17,000, costs associated with growth in our supply chain solutions business, variable costs associated with the increased volume of sales, and further organic investment in higher value businesses; partially offset by savings from the integration of BrightPoint and implementation of our organizational effectiveness program. In addition, the prior year quarter included a net benefit of approximately $24,500 or 24 basis points of consolidated net sales, relating to the receipt of $29,500 from a LCD flat panel display class action settlement, partially offset by the negative impact of approximately $5,000 recorded for estimated potential penalties and other charges related to indirect tax declarations in Europe.
Amortization of intangible assets increased $2,929 in the third quarter of 2014 compared to the third quarter of 2013 due to our recent acquisitions.
During the third quarter of 2014, we incurred net reorganization costs of $17,300, primarily related to employee termination benefits as we are adjusting our cost structure in line with our global organizational effectiveness program. During the third quarter of 2013, we incurred net reorganization costs of $6,748, primarily for employee termination benefits for workforce reductions in Germany to adjust our cost structure to the existing conditions and our exit of a BrightPoint facility in the U.S. (See Note 8 to our consolidated financial statements).

Management's Discussion and Analysis Continued

Operating margin in the third quarter of 2014 decreased 29 basis points compared to the third quarter of 2013, primarily reflecting the impact of the restructuring, integration and transition charge of $26,499, or 24 basis points, in the current period, compared to $10,591 or 10 basis points in the prior year. The prior year quarter also included a net benefit of $24,500 or 24 basis points of net sales related to the LCD flat panel display class action settlement and a charge for indirect taxes in Europe as discussed above. The remaining improvement in our operating margin primarily reflects leverage on operating expenses we realized from the sales growth.
The decrease in North American operating margin in the third quarter of 2014 compared to the third quarter of 2013 largely reflects the prior year benefit of $28,500 or 66 basis points of North American net sales, related to a LCD flat panel display class action settlement discussed above, as well as reorganization, integration and transition charges of $9,894, or 19 basis points, of North American net sales, in the current period compared to $4,051, or 9 basis points of North American revenue, in the prior year. A greater mix of high volume, lower gross margin products in our technology solutions business also negatively impacted the North American operating margin in 2014.

The decrease in our European operating margin in the third quarter of 2014 compared to the third quarter of 2013 primarily reflects the impact of charges of $15,411, or 48 basis points of European net sales, for reorganization, integration and transition costs incurred in connection with our organizational effectiveness program and the integration of BrightPoint, compared to $5,082, or 17 basis points in the prior year. The prior year quarter also reflects the impact of the charge of $5,000, or 17 basis points of European net sales, related to indirect tax declarations. A greater mix of high volume lower gross margin products, particularly in the retail and consumer markets negatively impacted the European operating margins in the quarter. However, this decline is partially offset by the benefits from cost savings as a result of the initial implementation of our organizational effectiveness initiative, and we expect to see further improvements in Europe's cost structure as we enter 2015.
Our Asia-Pacific operating margin increased in the third quarter of 2014 compared to the third quarter of 2013. Operating income increased by $8,566 largely due to continued improvement in Australia's technology solutions business, as well as strong enterprise sales in India and Singapore.
The decrease in our Latin American operating margin in the third quarter of 2014 compared to the third quarter of 2013 reflects rapid growth in the lower margin handset distribution sales in the region's mobility business. The prior year quarter also included a benefit related to a LCD flat panel display class action settlement of approximately $1,000 or 23 basis points of Latin American net sales.
Other expense, net, consisted primarily of interest expense and income, foreign currency exchange losses and gains and other non-operating gains and losses. We incurred other expenses of $16,758 in the third quarter of 2014 compared to $24,188 in the third quarter of 2013. The year-over-year decrease is primarily attributable to a net foreign currency exchange gain recorded in our Pan-European purchasing entity of approximately $6,500, during the third quarter of 2014, compared to a loss of approximately $4,600 in the prior year, partially offset by higher interest expense, as a result of higher debt levels, to support the growth in our business and investment in recent acquisitions and higher costs for factoring and draft discounting programs.
We recorded an income tax provision of $30,723, or an effective tax rate of 29.8%, in the third quarter of 2014 compared to $34,565, or an effective tax rate of 30.5%, in the third quarter of 2013. The current quarter income tax provision includes the negative impact of approximately one percentage point related to a portion of restructuring and transition costs recorded in jurisdictions where no tax benefit was realized. The third quarter of 2014 also included net discrete benefits of approximately $6,618 which represent 6.4 percentage points of the effective tax rate, driven primarily by the release of unrealized tax benefits due to the expiration of the statute of limitations in various tax jurisdictions. The prior year income tax provision included discrete benefits totaling approximately $4,570, or 4.0 percentage points, driven primarily by the release of a previously recorded reserve against the deferred tax assets of one of our foreign operating units. We currently expect our full year effective tax rate to be approximately 32%, however, effective tax rates may vary significantly depending on the actual operating results in the various tax jurisdictions, as well as changes in the valuation allowance related to the expected recovery of our deferred tax assets.
