Poznaliśmy właśnie wyniki finansowe spółki BlackBerry Limited za pierwszy kwartał roku fiskalnego 2019, a wraz z nimi potwierdza się, że BlackBerry to teraz firma czysto software’owa.
Z najważniejszych punktów trzeba zaznaczyć, że aż 86% przychodów z oprogramowania i usług należy do przychodu cyklicznego, a to wzrost o 16% względem poprzedniego kwartału. Całkowity przychód z oprogramowania i usług wyniósł 193 miliony dolarów non-GAAP, co przekłada się na wzrost o 14% względem wyników z przed roku, a licząc GAAP 189 milionów i wzrost o 18% rok do roku.
Dodatkowo dochód operacyjny non-GAAP wyniósł 12 milionów USD i był na plusie IX kwartał z rzędu, a rezerwy gotówkowe, ich ekwiwalenty i krótko oraz długoterminowe inwestycje wyniosły około 2.3 miliarda USD (stan na 31 maja). Jest więc stabilny wzrost, ale bez żadnych zaskoczeń – na plus czy minus.
Po ogłoszeniu wyników akcje BB poszły w górę o 2.6%.
