ScanSource on August 31 reported its fiscal fourth quarter 2020 results, and the result, while not grim, were not the results a company hopes for. The Greenville, S.C.-based distributor reported net sales for the quarter down 22 percent year-over-year at $636.5 million, and a net loss of $217.3 million, down significantly from last year’s net income of $11.6 million.
