EMC Reports Record Revenue

HOPKINTON, Mass. -- EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today reported all-time record revenue and strong profit growth for the fourth quarter and full fiscal year 2006. EMC's 14th consecutive quarter of double-digit year-over-year revenue growth was highlighted by better-than-expected revenue and profit performance.

Total consolidated revenue for the fourth quarter was a record $3.215 billion, 19% higher than the $2.710 billion for the fourth quarter of 2005 and $55 million more than the fourth-quarter revenue forecast provided by EMC in October 2006.

GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2006 was $389 million or $0.18 per diluted share, which includes a $0.06 per share restructuring charge, a
$0.05 per share tax benefit related to prior years and a $0.02 per share tax benefit related to the first three quarters of 2006. Excluding these items, net income for the fourth quarter of 2006 was $0.17 per share, $0.02 higher than the fourth quarter forecast provided by EMC in October 2006. GAAP reported fourth-quarter net income for 2005 was $148 million or $0.06 per diluted share.

Total consolidated revenue for EMC's full 2006 fiscal year was a record
$11.155 billion, 15% higher than the $9.664 billion reported for the full
2005 fiscal year.

GAAP net income for 2006 was $1.22 billion or $0.54 per diluted share.
Excluding special items discussed below diluted earnings per share for 2006 also was $0.54. GAAP reported net income for 2005 was $1.13 billion or $0.47 per diluted share. Adjusting for special items in both years, and had stock options been expensed in 2005, diluted earnings per share would have increased 35% to $0.54 in 2006 from the $0.40 diluted earnings per share in 2005.
