Aruba Networks reports record quarterly revenues

For the third quarter ending April 30, Aruba reported record quarterly revenues of $69 million, a jump of 51 per cent compared to the same quarter last year.

Wireless LAN vendor Aruba Networks reported another quarterly loss, slightly smaller than a year ago, but its third-quarter adjusted earnings were slightly better than analysts expected, and it set a record for revenues.

For the third quarter ending April 30, Aruba reported record quarterly revenues of $69 million, a jump of 51% compared to the same quarter last year. The GAAP quarterly net loss was $5.3 million, or 6 cents per share, compared to a net loss of $5.8 million, or 7 cents per share, a year ago. The quarterly revenues were up sequentially 10% compared to Q2.

Excluding a range of items, the company actually earned 8 cents a share. Analysts were expecting earnings of 7 cents per share, excluding various items on revenues of $65.5 million, according to a Reuters report based on data from Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

The revenues were up as the company added 700 new customers, to a total of over 10,000. The company said that adoption of high-throughput 802.11n equipment is accelerating and that customers continue to "divert budgets from wired LANs toward wireless solutions."

The company just announced a deal to acquire an outdoor Wi-Fi mesh vendor, China-based Azalea Networks, for $40 million.

Aruba’s stock price has been steadily rising over the past year from a low of $4.91 a year ago, to a recent high on April 14 of $13.89. It closed Wednesday at $11.57.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
