Dell sticks to forecast despite PC market slowdown

Dell is still in course to hoist revenue by 16% to $13.4bn in the first quarter despite what it sees a slowdown in overall sales of PCs.

By CBR Staff Writer

In his annual presentation to Wall Street analysts, CEO Kevin Rollins said that the PC market was a little bit slower than maybe we had even thought. But Rollins was unperturbed about conditions, insisting that Dell would grow faster than the industry and the decline in the growth rate is nothing to light our hair on fire about.

Moreover, Dell was diversifying beyond PCs and is less dependent on PC shipment growth.

The company is sticking to forecasts that earnings per share will show a 32% rise for the quarter to $0.37.

Dell’s growth plans, covering hardware and services, are focused around four technology areas: network servers, storage systems, printing and imaging and mobile computing.
