EMC Corp. (NYSE: EMC) reported Q2 EPS of $0.45, $0.03 better than the analyst estimate of $0.42. Revenue for the quarter came in at $6 billion versus the consensus estimate of $6 billion.

Joe Tucci, EMC Chairman and CEO, said, “We had a strong second quarter and are well positioned as we look forward to combining with Dell to establish the world’s largest privately-controlled, integrated technology company. We expect the transaction to happen under the original terms and within the originally announced timeframe, following the result of tomorrow’s Special Meeting of Shareholders, regulatory approval from China and completion of customary closing conditions.”

Denis Cashman, EMC CFO, said, “We executed well in the second quarter, and are pleased with our free cash flow performance, which was up 108% year over year. GAAP and non-GAAP revenue in the second quarter was flat and down 1% year over year, respectively. We once again experienced a higher-than-expected build in unshipped storage product orders due to the timing of bookings within the quarter. Adjusting for an approximately $130 million increase in unshipped orders compared to the year ago quarter, EMC’s consolidated non-GAAP revenue in the second quarter grew 1% year over year.”

David Goulden, CEO of EMC Information Infrastructure, said, “Many of the products announced early in the year, including our newer technologies, are making great traction as customers advance their IT and digital business transformation initiatives, contributing to a strong second quarter. Most notably, our expanded all-flash storage portfolio, converged and hyper-converged portfolio, as well as our enterprise hybrid cloud and Virtustream cloud solutions performed very well. We also announced a number of major product announcements in the second quarter at EMC World. Initial customer response has been tremendous. Turning toward our coming together with Dell, I’m incredibly excited about the impact we will make for customers as we continue to invest and innovate in support of their most strategic IT-led initiatives.”
