SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--August 8, 2000--Cisco Systems,
Inc., the worldwide leader in networking for the Internet, today
reported its fourth quarter results for the period ending July 29,
2000.
   Net sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2000 were $5.72
billion, compared with $3.56 billion for the same period last year, an
increase of 61%. Pro forma net income, which excludes the effects of
acquisition charges, payroll tax on stock option exercises, and net
gains realized on minority investments, was $1.20 billion or $0.16 per
share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2000, compared with pro forma
net income of $710 million or $0.10 per share for the fourth quarter
of fiscal 1999, increases of 69% and 60%, respectively.
   During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2000, Cisco completed the
acquisitions of Atlantech Technologies, Ltd., JetCell, Inc., PentaCom
Ltd., Qeyton Systems, and Seagull Semiconductor, Ltd. for a combined
purchase price, including assumed liabilities, of approximately $1.39
billion and took one-time charges of $461 million, or approximately
$0.06 per share on an after-tax basis, as write-offs of purchased
in-process R&D. Additionally, Cisco completed the acquisitions of
ArrowPoint Communications, Inc., InfoGear Technology Corp., and
SightPath, Inc. which were accounted for as poolings of interests.
   Actual net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2000 was $796
million or $0.11 per share, compared with $605 million or $0.08 per
share for the same period last year.
   Net sales for fiscal 2000 were $18.93 billion, compared with
$12.17 billion for fiscal 1999, an increase of 55%. Pro forma net
income was $3.91 billion or $0.53 per share for fiscal 2000, compared
with pro forma net income of $2.52 billion or $0.36 per share for
fiscal 1999, increases of 56% and 47%, respectively.
   Actual net income for fiscal 2000 was $2.67 billion or $0.36 per
share, compared with $2.02 billion or $0.29 per share for fiscal 1999.
   The net income per share and number of shares used in the
per-share calculation for all periods presented reflect the
two-for-one stock split that was effective March 22, 2000.
   "We predicted five years ago that we were in the midst of a second
Industrial Revolution that would determine the prosperity of
companies, countries, and individuals. Today, the Internet continues
to drive the strongest U.S. economy in history," said John Chambers,
president and CEO of Cisco Systems. "The second Industrial Revolution
is just begining and businesses and governments are turning to Cisco,
the Internet expert, to assist them in transforming their companies
and countries. We were very pleased with the balance of our business
across all key geographies, products, and lines of business."
   In the service provider marketplace, Cisco continued to advance
its strategy for New World integrated data, voice, and video networks
and made progress in each of its key areas including optical
networking, wireless solutions, and voice-transition technology. In
the optical market, Cisco expanded its portfolio of Internet-scale,
carrier-class solutions by announcing the acquisition of Qeyton
Systems, a developer of metropolitan dense wave division multiplexing
(MDWDM) technology. Increasing its broadband offering, Cisco announced
its intent to acquire IPmobile to help service providers build the
next-generation IP-based wireless infrastructure known as "3G" to
create a broad array of new and innovative wireless data and voice
services. Underscoring Cisco's strategy to provide service providers
with a smooth transition path to New World networks, Cisco announced
its intent to acquire Komodo Technology, Inc. and HyNEX, Ltd. Komodo's
voice-over-IP (VoIP) devices allow analog telephones to place calls
over IP-based networks. HyNEX's products strengthen Cisco's solution
in international markets by accelerating the deployment of IP+ATM
networks to enable service providers to deliver an expanded range of
data, voice, and video services.
   In the enterprise market, Cisco strengthened its storage area
networking strategy by entering into a technology agreement with
Brocade Communication Systems and announcing its intent to acquire
NuSpeed Internet Systems. Both transactions will enable companies to
store, retrieve, and back-up data more efficiently by seamlessly
interconnecting storage area networks over a single IP-based
infrastructure. Cisco also introduced a range of gigabit and
10-gigabit solutions for its Catalyst(R) 6000, 4000, and 2900 series
XL switching families to deliver gigabit bandwidth and intelligent
network services across traditional enterprises and service
provider environments. Cisco also expanded its portfolio of content
networking solutions by announcing its intent to acquire Netiverse,
Inc., a leading provider of content acceleration technology that
enhances the performance and functionality of networking devices.
   In the small and medium-sized business market, Cisco joined with
GE Industrial Systems to form a new company, GE Cisco Industrial
Networks, to help small and medium-sized businesses increase
factory-to-office communications through Internet-based solutions. GE
Cisco Industrial Networks will assess, design, and build network
infrastructures for manufacturing plant floor and industrial
environments that will enable company-wide Internet-based
communication.
   "We see no indications in the marketplace that the radical
Internet business transformation in practices like customer service,
supply-chain management, employee training, empowerment, and
e-commerce that is taking place around the world today is slowing --
in fact, we believe it is accelerating globally. We would like to
thank our shareholders, customers, employees, partners, and suppliers
for their continued commitment and confidence in our ability to
execute in the future as we have in the past," concluded Chambers.
