Services revenues, which include software maintenance and professional services, were $322 million, an increase of 51% from the first quarter of 2009. 

“The quarter’s strong performance reinforces our position that virtualization is becoming a cornerstone for customer’s IT strategy, particularly since it enables them an evolutionary path forward to cloud computing,” said Paul Maritz, president and chief executive officer.  “With this broad acceptance of virtualization, it allows us to maintain an innovative and aggressive strategy to help remove complexity from IT and deliver on our vision of enabling IT-as-a-service.”

“Our strong first quarter results were driven by pent up customer demand, carried over from last quarter, as well as a strong performance in Europe, China and Japan,” said Mark Peek, chief financial officer.  “We expect second quarter license revenues to be down sequentially, but total revenues to increase to a range of $635 and $665 million incorporating increased revenues from the acquisition of Zimbra and assets acquired from EMC.  We also expect annual 2010 revenues to be in the range of $2.625 and $2.725 billion, an increase of 30% to 35% from 2009.”
