Cisco - Running out of Steam: 2013

Feb 22, 2013 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Cisco - Running out of Steam" report to their offering.

Cisco - Company Profile - Running out of steam A fundamental problem is slowing organic revenue growth due to weak networking. Since 2011, Cisco has turned itself around; re-organised, cut costs & raised productivity. EPS, revenues & margins have benefitted from acquisitions and diversifying into services, software and other products (eg. video, collaboration, ) and lower tax rates. These drivers have some momentum left, but are running out of steam. Cisco's ultra low tax rates look unsustainable and EBIT margins are at the top end of their historical range. Valuation multiples have rebounded from historical lows and now have little upside left. In summary, we have modest expectations for Cisco due to a lack of enough catalysts.

Mixed 2013 Q2 results - Slowing organic growth and margins fell slightly.

- Revenue growth continues to slow across most divisions.

- Cisco is hostage to the macro environment which remains weak. But guidance was cautiously optimistic.

- We estimate organic revenue growth at c. 3%, excluding acquisitions (eg. NDS).
