Red Hat Exceeds Wall Street Professionals’ Expectations

Once again, Red Hat exceeded expectations and defied the declining economy by achieving better-than-Wall Street-expected financial results in the third quarter of this year. As one of the main factors of this success, the company’s management mentions Red Hat’s very large share in the migration market from Windows and UNIX systems.

Contrary to specialists’ and its own estimates, Red Hat achieved revenue of $194 million in this fiscal period (ended November 30), which is an 18% increase this year. According to previous estimates for this quarter, Red Hat was expected to achieve revenue of 188 million.

Net income was $16.4 million, or $0.08 per share, down from the same period last year ($24.3 million). The reason for this is, among other things, the resolutions of court cases that took place in the quarter ended. Currently, further increases are expected in future accounting periods.
