Data General?s results for its financial 1997 year show the company has hit record revenues driven by sales of its Intel-based servers and high capacity storage products.
The quarter, which ended September 27, saw revenue up nearly $70 million on the same period last year to $404 million. Profit doubled to $17 million. For the full fiscal year profit hit $56 million on revenues of $1.53 billion ? an 18 percent revenue increase on 1996 and a doubling in profit.
?Fiscal 1997 was an outstanding year for Data General, as both of our primary businesses, Aviion servers and Clariion storage, have grown to $500 million. This is solid affirmation that our strategy and products are in line with the needs of the enterprise computing marketplace,? said Ron Skates, president and chief executive.
Driving these results was strong revenue growth in sales of Intel servers, particularly for Windows NT systems costing above $50,000. This has comfortably replaced its declining business in servers based on Motorola 88k processors.
Next year Data General is also expecting strong revenue growth from its Thiinline business unit which focuses on Web servers and plans to ship products in volume during 1998. It also continues to grow its OEM assembly business for other manufacturers.
