Dell Reports Record Quarter

Dell on Thursday posted company records for product shipments, revenues, operating income, net income and earnings per share in the quarter ended Jan. 30. The computermaker credited much of its quarterly strength to growth in enterprise computing products.

Revenues amounted to $11.5 billion, an 18 percent jump; operating income went up 20 percent to $981 million; net income was $749 million, up 24 percent; and net earnings were 29 cents, a 26 percent increase. For the full year, revenues were $41 billion, up 17 percent; and net income was $2.6 billion, up 25 percent.

The company said sales of its PowerEdge servers jumped 40 percent over the comparable period a year ago. Storage revenue jumped 47 percent, and the company reported strong sales worldwide.

"Much of the industry's quarterly growth was at the low ends of the desktop and notebook categories, which offer little if any profitability. Dell met its operating targets by pursuing profitable growth," Kevin Rollins, Dell president and chief operating officer, said in a statement.
