IBM Earnings Dip As Sales Fall Again

Comments Off on IBM Earnings Dip As Sales Fall Again 8

Technology heavyweight IBM reported lower profits in the first quarter following another drop in revenues, this time partly due to the strong dollar.
Earnings for the first quarter slipped 2.4 percent to $2.3 billion, while revenues dropped 11.9 percent to $19.59 billion.

Profits translated to $2.91 per share, nine cents above analysts’ forecasts. But revenues lagged projections of $19.73 billion.

“Our focus on higher value through portfolio transformation and investment in key areas of the business drove continued margin expansion,” said IBM chief executive Ginni Rometty in a statement after markets closed.

The tech giant said its efforts to build new businesses linked to cloud computing, mobile technology and data analysis were making progress. Cloud revenue rose more than 60 percent. Original post at ET Telecom
