Trend Micro Reports Second Quarter 2009 Results

Trend Micro posted consolidated net sales of 24,244 million Yen

Trend Micro Incorporated, a provider of Internet content security, announced earnings results for the second quarter 2009.

For the second quarter, Trend Micro posted consolidated net sales of 24,244 million Yen (or US $249 million, 97.22 JPY = 1USD). The company posted operating income of 7,229 million Yen (or US $74 million) and net income of 4,028 million Yen (or US $41 million) for the quarter. These figures reflect a 2 percent increase in net income compared to the same period a year ago.

The Japan region experienced flat consumer sales compared to the same period last year, and reduced enterprise sales. In North America, consumer sales increased even though appreciation of the yen against the dollar affected this region. EMEA sales revenues decreased slightly along with its local currency, in addition to the strength of the yen, total sales substantially decreased when compared to the same period last year. Though Australia demonstrated substantial growth in its local currency, the other APAC countries negatively affected the region's sales growth. In addition, due to appreciation of the yen against the dollar, the region's sales growth decreased. The Latin America region had a healthy local currency but the region's sales growth decreased by double digits compared to the same period last year due to appreciation of the yen against the dollar, which affected this region.

"Trend Micro turns innovation into real products that meet customer needs; I am proud of what we launched this quarter to deliver immediate protection, less complexity as well as strategic flexibility for our business customers," said Eva Chen, CEO. "We are excited about the recent strides we've made in cloud computing, virtualization, and data protection as well as advances in protecting more consumer platforms and devices."

Based on information currently available to the company, consolidated net sales for the third quarter ending September 30, 2009 is expected to be 25,000 million Yen (or US $263 million, based on an exchange rate of 95 JPY = 1USD). Operating income and net income are expected to be 7,400 million Yen (or US $77 million) and 4,600 million Yen (or US $48 million), respectively.

Growth rate figures are calculated from Japanese Yen results. Some discrepancy may therefore be noted in US Dollar comparisons owing to fluctuations in currency conversion rates.

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices.

When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts.

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
