Company Of The Day: VMware

VMW: VMware logo


VMware (NYSE:VMW) posted a mixed set of Q2 results, with revenue rising 9% year-over-year to $3.14 billion, roughly in line with Street estimates. Adjusted EPS beat estimates, coming in at $1.75 per share. This was partly due to a better than expected performance of the company’s on-premise business. However, the company’s subscription and software-as-a-service revenue growth figures were weaker than expected. Subscription and SaaS revenue grew 23% year-over-year, compared to 29% reported in Q1. Growth is expected to cool further in Q3.
