"2013 was another year of strategic progress and financial performance as the combination of our balanced channel portfolio, broad product suite, and focus on execution enabled us to deliver profitable growth above the US IT market while investing in our future," said CDW Chairman and CEO Thomas E. Richards.
Richards said fourth quarter results were driven by ongoing momentum from medium and large businesses, while the company's K-12 education division had record sales. That, he added, offset declines in sales to the federal government.
"We delivered solid profitability while investing in additional customer-facing co-workers and building our brand against a backdrop of continued pricing pressure in transactional products," Richards said.
CDW's board of directors also approved a quarterly cash dividend of 4.25 cents per share, payable on March 10, 2014 to shareholders of record on Feb. 25.
The Vernon Hills-based company went public in June 2013 and is listed in the Nasdaq index.
