Motorola Solutions Reports First-Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MSI) today reported its earnings results for the first quarter of 2014. Click here for printable press release and financial tables.

  • Government segment sales declined 11 percent to $1.2 billion reflecting lower aged backlog in the quarter and a challenging year-ago comparison in the Federal business. In addition, North America sales were weaker than expected due to lower ASTRO and professional commercial radio subscriber volume. Global sales were strong in TETRA, and the Services business grew single-digits for the quarter.
  • Enterprise segment sales declined 4 percent to $600 million primarily due to the expected decline in iDEN. Excluding the impact of iDEN, Enterprise revenues declined less than 1 percent primarily driven by the delay of several deals late in the quarter, primarily in North America.


Greg Brown, chairman and CEO, Motorola Solutions

“First quarter sales results were below expectations due to lower order volume in both Enterprise and North America Government,” said Greg Brown, chairman and CEO, Motorola Solutions. “The long-term fundamentals of our Government business remain solid and, with the announced sale of the Enterprise business, we will accelerate ongoing cost actions to improve our competitiveness and operating leverage going forward.”
