Dell today reported second-quarter revenue of $4.6 billion, an increase of 28% from a year earlier.
That includes an $867 million profit from selling a Dell EMC solution called the Next-Generation Cloud.
Dell said the new cloud solutions will add $6.4 billion to the company’s cloud services revenue, while adding $1.3 billion to its cloud infrastructure and software revenue.
Dell says it now expects revenue of more than $11 billion this year.
The company said it also had a strong year in the cloud computing space with the launch of its new XPS 13.
Dell also has a new XTR 7000 notebook, and plans to introduce a new server line this fall.
Dell is also moving forward with the purchase of Motorola Solutions and has plans to build a new manufacturing facility in China.
The news comes on the heels of Dell’s announcement last week that it plans to merge with Lenovo to form Lenovo.
Dell will continue to focus on its PC business, with a focus on high-end desktop and server products.
Dell’s outlook for the year is unchanged.
The outlook for next year is more moderate.
Dell expects to achieve a net income of $1 billion for the second quarter of 2019.
For the full year, Dell expects a loss of $7.2 billion.
Dell CEO Michael Dell says he expects the company to deliver an operating profit of $2.6 million for the quarter.
“We believe the current growth rate of the PC business will support a more sustainable path for the company, and we remain focused on providing our valued customers with the highest-quality PC products and services,” Dell said in a statement.
