more recent information posted at  Analysis of Sysco 2013 Fiscal Results

Sysco is one of North America's largest food companies.  Its 185 distribution centers serve over 400,000 individuals and businesses.  In 2012 fiscal revenue at Sysco surpassed $40 billion, a first for the Houston based company.

Aquisitions 2012 United States:  9 businesses with annual sales of over $700 million one of which is Louisiana Foods.  2013 4 completed in just the first month including one in Canada.  USA:  Appert’s Foodservice, Buchy Foodservice, Central Seafood.  Canada: Distagro Foodservice formerly a division of Metro Inc.

Though it's not a significant change it is important to note that, although Sysco managed to increase sales in each of the past two years both times, company net earnings declined year to year.  This was also true for ebit (earnings before interest and taxes) and operating income.  Sysco buys from private label processors (example of private label suppliers: Conagra, Ralcorp, Treehouse Foods, etc.)  Regional Distribution Centers help Sysco lower costs (optimizes supply chain activities for certain products, but warehouses are not overused).

Capital expenditures reached a record $784.501 million in 2012 representing a +23.3% increase over 2011.  Exactly 10.0% of total revenue comes from Sysco Canada, up from 9.8% in 2011, 9.5% in 2010.  On June 30, 2012 cash equivalents were at $688.867 million up 7.7% from June 30, 2011.   The fiscal year ends in June.  On June 30, 2012 the company had 155 distribution facilities in the United States, 29 in Canada, and 1 in Ireland.  The 29 in Canada have a cold storage capacity of 1.266 million square feet (out of 13.109m total) and a dry storage capacity of 1.284 million square feet (out of 12.465m total).
