Dell Competitiveness Spurs Growth

ROUND ROCK, Texas -- Dells enhanced product portfolio and competitiveness are driving renewed growth worldwide, Michael Dell, chairman and CEO, and Brian Gladden, Dell chief financial officer, told shareholders today at the company’s annual shareholder meeting.

Mr. Dell reviewed progress the company is making in its five growth priorities, including, the fastest growth in the industry during Q1 in consumer units and becoming the No. 1 choice of consumers for desktops and laptops in a survey by the Frost & Sullivan analyst firm; growth worldwide in notebooks; industry-leading growth in servers and storage products for data centers; 58 percent revenue growth year over year in the fiscal first quarter in emerging countries; and, the most shipments of desktops, laptops and servers to small and medium businesses globally in a single quarter of Dell’s history.

“Preliminary industry data shows we continue to grow units faster than the industry in the second calendar quarter,” Mr. Dell said. “Renewed product innovation and leadership with all products and services have accelerated our growth across the world. From the desktop to the datacenter, from consumers to our biggest corporate customers, we are listening and positioning Dell to win as the next billion people come online in the Connected Era.”
