Cisco’s 2Q profit dips on charges, revenue decline
February 13, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

SAN JOSE — Cisco Systems Inc. reported Wednesday that weaker revenue and special charges weighed down its second-quarter profitability.

The San Jose company said after the market closed that it earned $1.43 billion, or 27 cents per share, for the quarter. That’s down from $3.14 billion, or 59 cents per share, a year earlier.

Cisco’s results included a $655 million charge to address issues with memory components, and the prior quarter’s results include a $926 million tax benefit. After adjusting for those and other special items in both periods, the company earned 47 cents per share, compared with 51 cents per share last year.

The company, which sells routers, switches, software and services, said its revenue fell nearly 8 percent to $11.16 billion from $12.1 billion.

Analysts polled by FactSet were anticipating earnings of 46 cents per share on revenue of $11.04 billion.

Cisco on Tuesday also raised its dividend 12 percent to 19 cents per share, up from 17 cents. The new dividend will be paid on April 23 to shareholders of record as of April 3.

Shares of Cisco fell 74 cents, a 3.2 percent decline, to $22.11 in after-hours trading. Its shares closed regular trading at $22.85, up roughly 9 percent from this time last year.

Daily Journal Quick Poll
 
Were the SF Giants right to win "tarp-gate," the controversial appeal of a rained out game with the Chicago Cubs?

Yes, the ground crew fumbled covering the infield
No, the Chicago victory should stand
Not sure but the game should have been called much earlier
Don't care. Just tired of the hoopla surrounding the initial call
