Q3 Earnings Report From Juniper Networks

Posted by | Blog | No Comments

It’s the time for earnings season this quarter, and every company has to report on their revenue and profitability, including those in the telecom and networking industries. One of the dominant players to report last Friday (10/24/2014) was Juniper Networks, with unfortunately, some bad news. Q3 revenues declined by 5% YOY, and as a result, it plans to increase more cost trimming measures (of up to $100 Million) in order to bring the numbers into the black for the next earnings season.

The two prime reasons cited for this decline in revenue was:

2)      Very slow ramp up of new projects here in the United States. However, the news of the lower than expected numbers from Juniper should not come as a total surprise. For example, earlier in the month, they did lower their revenue and profit forecast, when demand from US based service providers declined sharply. Third quarter revenue for this year was at $742 Million, down 6% YOY, citing declines in both the United States and the Asian/Pacific Rim markets. Read More
