Red Hat 3Q revenue growth driven by subscriptions

Red Hat reports 46 percent growth in income

Buoyed by strong subscription revenue, open-source software company Red Hat reported on Monday strong net income and revenue gains for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2012.

For the quarter, which ended Nov. 30, Red Hat reaped US$38.2 million in net income, or $0.19 per diluted share, an increase of 46 percent from the same quarter a year ago, the company reported Monday.

Red Hat's revenue grew to $290 million, a 23 percent increase from a year ago. Of this revenue, $246.5 million came from software subscriptions, a 24 percent increase from the previous year, the company reported. Most of the remaining revenue came from the company's training services.

In this time period, the company benefitted from both strong demand from enterprise customers as well as gains in market share, said Jim Whitehurst, Red Hat president and CEO, in a statement. Red Hat also closed its acquisition of open-source storage software company Gluster during the quarter.

Taking into account factors such as stock compensation and amortization expenses, Red Hat reported non-GAAP net income of $55.7 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, as compared to $39.1 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, in the same quarter a year ago.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
