The developer, manufacturer, and seller of networking hardware, software, various tech equipment break its five-quarter streak of revenue declines, according to its latest earnings report

For fiscal fourth-quarter 2021, Cisco reported an adjusted EPS of 83 cents, on revenues of $12.80 billion. As mentioned before, the company reversed the revenue declines reported for five consecutive quarters, and it posted a 7% growth year-over-year.

Like automakers and other business, Cisco has been facing supply chain challenges. The setback impacted the adjusted gross margin for the fiscal Q4 2021, as the company continues to incur expenses, to make sure its products get to customers.

With respect to guidance, Cisco sees its adjusted EPS to reach a high of 83 cents, while the revenue is expected to increase as much as 8%.  According to the company’s CEO Chuck Robbins, the revenue guidance would have been higher if it wasn’t for the current supply dynamics.

Year-to-date, Cisco share went up about 17%, while USA500 added 9% over the same period.
