Remarks by Scott Herren
Scott Herren, the chief financial officer at Cisco praised the recent performance delivered by their company.
Herren stated that they are glad that finally their company has gotten back on track and is moving in the right direction.
They expect that fiscal 2023 would prove to be very exciting and promising for their company. Things will go as planned and they hope to generate more sales and revenue than they have set their eyes to.
For the strong earnings in the fiscal first quarter, they stated that they have recorded a great recovery in the supply chains.
For almost a couple of years, the supply chains were badly interrupted and this was causing a huge loss to their business. They failed to meet the demands and that was dragging down their sales and revenue.
As the supply chains are finally getting back to normal, they are recording a significant rise in their earnings. They are confident that the same would be happening with their earnings in fiscal 2023.
