Stocks in this article: CTXS

Citrix (NASDAQ:CTXS) today reported financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 ended September 30, 2012.


In the third quarter of fiscal 2012, Citrix achieved revenue of $641 million, compared to $565 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, representing 13 percent revenue growth.

GAAP Results

Net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 was $78 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, compared to $92 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2011.

And Citrix remains in a great position as customers prioritize their investments for a world shaped by mobile workstyles and cloud services.”
