Dell Technologies Posts Smaller Q3 Loss

Scott Ferguson

Dell Technologies posted a smaller loss during its 2018 financial third quarter, as the company continues to absorb its EMC acquisition, as well as branch out into new areas, such as hyperconverged infrastructure and the Internet of Things.

During the quarter, Dell Technologies (Nasdaq: DELL) posted GAAP revenue of $19.6 billion -- a 21% year-over-year increase -- and an operating loss of $533 million, as well as a net loss of $941 million. In the second quarter, the company had a net loss of $978 million. (See Dell Posts Q2 Loss, Signs Massive Deal With GE.)

In the third quarter, non-GAAP revenue stood at $19.9 billion and non-GAAP income stood at $1.97 billion.

Overall, Dell is continuing to absorb its EMC acquisition, as well as expand into other areas, including cloud and IoT.

In October, CEO Michael Dell introduced a new IoT strategy that will leverage all the various businesses that make up Dell Technologies, including Dell EMC , VMware Inc. (NYSE: VMW), Secureworks, RSA, Boomi and Virtustream. (See Dell Putting Its Company Muscle Behind New IoT Strategy.)

"Our strategy to be the essential infrastructure provider is resonating with our customers, who turn to Dell Technologies to transform and digitize their environments," Jeff Clarke, vice-chairman of products and operations at Dell, wrote in a December 7 statement.

Within the Infrastructure Solutions Group (ISG), which includes Dell's cloud and infrastructure businesses, the company saw revenue of $7.5 billion, a 2% quarter-over-quarter increase, with operating income of $678 million. Server and networking revenue totaled $3.9 billion, an 3% quarter-over-quarter increase, and storage remained flat at $3.7 billion.

Within ISG, the company saw increased interest for its VxRail hyperconverged appliance, which the company recently updated with support for its newer PowerEdge servers. (See Dell Brings Hyperconverged Appliances to Latest PowerEdge Servers.)

While Dell Technologies is now a privately held company, it continues to report its quarterly results. In addition to the financial numbers released Thursday, the company also noted that it paid down $1.7 billion in debt during the last three months, and has now paid down $9.7 billion in debt since the EMC deal closed.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
