Dell CEO To Spell Out Plan To Boost Top Line To $80 Billion By 2008
Growth Plans Emphasize 4 Technology Areas: Network Servers, Storage Systems, Printing and Imaging, and Mobile Computing

Dell, expected today to announce first-quarter revenue of about $13.4 billion, up 16 percent from the prior year, and earnings per share of 37 cents, up 32 percent, will also be spelling out its growth plans. Kevin Rollins, Dell's CEO, is going to discuss the company's recently increased revenue goal of $80 billion, including how the company expects to reach that level within three to four years by emphasizing four technology areas: network servers, storage systems, printing and imaging, and mobile computing.

Rollins will say that Dell expects to reach that $80BN level within three to four years.

In the four product and service areas pinpointed by Rollins, as well as in regions outside the United States, Dell expects to continue to grow at rates even faster than its strong overall average.

Dell also now intends to spend $2 billion to repurchase stock during the current quarter, more than double its original expectation. Over the past four years, stock buyback has reduced weighted average shares outstanding by more than 9 percent.
