Cisco's latest results show signs of turnaround
In turnaround mode, Cisco Systems beats analyst estimates for latest quarter
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' Cisco Systems, the world's largest maker of computer networking gear, is showing signs of pulling a turnaround, exceeding analyst sales expectations for the second quarter in a row.

The San Jose, Calif., company had net income of $1.8 billion, or 33 cents per share, in the fiscal first quarter, which ended in October. That compares with $1.9 billion, or 34 cents per share, a year ago.

Excluding special items, earnings were 43 cents per share, 3 cents above the average projection of analyst polled by FactSet.

Revenue grew nearly 5 percent from last year to $11.3 billion. That was about $230 million above analyst estimates.

Cisco Systems Inc. has been slashing jobs and culling divisions this year in an effort to revive growth.
