Dell Technologies (NYSE: DVMT) announces its fiscal 2017 fourth quarter and full year results, which reflect the growth and impact of the EMC transaction.
For the fourth quarter, consolidated revenue from continuing operations was $20.1 billion and non-GAAP revenue from continuing operations was $20.6 billion. During the quarter, the company generated an operating loss of $1.7 billion, with a non-GAAP operating income of $1.8 billion.
For the full year, consolidated revenue from continuing operations was $61.6 billion and non-GAAP revenue from continuing operations was $62.8 billion. The company generated an operating loss of $3.3 billion, with a non-GAAP operating income of $5.1 billion.
Due to the EMC transaction as well as the Dell going-private transaction, significant non-cash bridging items will remain between GAAP and non-GAAP results for the next few years. Prior-year historical Dell Technologies financials do not include EMC historical results, thereby impacting any year-over-year comparisons.
"I'm pleased with our overall fiscal 2017 performance, with growth in our client business and positive momentum from investments we're making in our infrastructure business," said Tom Sweet, chief financial officer, Dell Technologies Inc. "In our fiscal year 2018, we'll drive that momentum forward, beginning with our new sales go-to-market capabilities, and continue to target identified revenue and cost synergies while investing in our broad portfolio of solutions."
The company ended the year with a cash and investments balance of $15.3 billion, an increase of $287 million from the third quarter.
