After the closing bell on Tuesday, IBM Corp (IBM ) reported its fourth quarter results, posting lower revenues and earnings compared to last year’s Q4.
IBM chairman, president and CEO Ginni Rometty had the following comments: “We are making significant progress in our transformation, continuing to shift IBM’s business to higher value, and investing and positioning ourselves for the longer term. In 2014, we repositioned our hardware portfolio for higher value, maintained a services backlog of $128 billion and achieved strong revenue growth across cloud, analytics, mobile, social and security. Together these strategic imperatives grew 16 percent in 2014 and now represent $25 billion and 27 percent of our revenue.”
IBM paid its most recent quarterly dividend of $1.10 on December 10, 2014. We expect the company to announce a raise to its dividend in the coming weeks.
After ending the trading day mostly flat, IBM stock was down $1.24, or 0.79%, in after hours trading.
