Cisco Systems has posted an 18% increase in sales but falling net profits for its third quarter.
Cisco's total sales rose to $7.3bn (£4.2bn) in the third quarter compared with $6.2bn in the same quarter last year.
The sales rise included $407m from Scientific Atlanta, which Cisco officially acquired in February.
Cisco's net profits fell slightly. Net income fell to $1.4bn from $1.41bn a year ago.
Cisco chief executive officer John Chambers claimed Cisco had enjoyed a “strong” quarter, despite the profits fall, which was partly down to acquisition and stock compensation costs.
