John Chambers Discusses Cisco Post-Q109 Earnings

We thought it would be useful for interested parties to hear directly from our Chairman and CEO John Chambers about what Cisco is doing in these challenging economic times. He talks about, in part, that while we will undertake appropriate expense management initiatives in the current environment, we will also make some calculated investments into areas where we believe we can accelerate development and Cisco’s leadership.To listen to a replay of our Q109 earnings call, please visit our Investor Relations website.Chairman and CEO John Chambers

  3. It is not a real need to increase revenue and earnings quarter over quarter, year over year, this is only the stock exchange dictatorship :-)Obviously general economic cycles affect the companies performance, the real point is identifying if the companies will compensate good segment of cycle and not so good part of that cycle.If results are still positive and strong (the Cisco case) other things to be evaluated is how the company is preparing the future, increasing portfolio, targeting new market segments with high potential.If investment banks, their analysts, etc almost destroyed the world economy, it is time to avoiding ruling companies to please them.
