Leading the growth in the current quarter was the Technology Solutions group where strong year over year and sequential growth resulted in record sales of $1.40 billion and record operating income of $51.2 million."

Looking forward to Avnet's third quarter fiscal 2005, Mr. Vallee stated, "We expect revenues for Electronics Marketing to be up 8% to 12% sequentially and we anticipate sales for Technology Solutions to decline 20% to 24% sequentially. Therefore, Avnet's consolidated sales should be in
the range of $2.67 billion to $2.77 billion in the third quarter fiscal 2005."
