Dell cuts 8800 jobs

Posted on Friday, June 01 2007 @ 16:18:55 CEST by

While announcing its preliminary earnings Dell announced it will lay off 10% of its workforce. Dell currently has 88,000 employees all over the world so this means about 8,800 jobs will be cut next year.
Net income for the quarter ended May 4 totaled $759 million, or 34 cents per share, a slight dip from the same quarter last year, which came in at $762 million and 33 cents per share. The numbers still surpassed Wall Street's expectations of 26 cents per share.

Gross margins grew to $2.8 billion, up from $2.4 billion a year ago, and operating income was down slightly to $947 million from $949 million, which Dell attributed to higher average selling prices and a better mix of products and services. Revenue for the first quarter of Dell's fiscal year was $14.6 billion.
Looks like Dell is gearing up and shaving costs in an attempt to beat HP and become world's biggest PC shipper again.
