REUTERS: Cisco Systems Inc reported second-quarter revenue that beat Wall Street estimates on Wednesday, as the network gear maker benefited from its shift to newer businesses such as application software and cyber security.
The company reported net income of US$2.8 billion, or 63 cents per share, in its quarter ended Jan. 26, compared with a loss of US$8.78 billion, or US$1.78 per share, a year earlier, when it took a charge of US$11.1 billion related to the new U.S. tax laws.
Total revenue rose 4.7 percent to US$12.45 billion. Analysts on average had expected revenue of US$12.41 billion, according to IBES data from Refinitiv.
