Cisco Systems Inc (CSCO.O), the world’s largest networking gear maker, forecast current-quarter revenue below analysts’ estimates, sending its shares down 5 percent in extended trading.
The company said on Wednesday it expected revenue for its fourth quarter to fall between 4-6 percent from a year earlier, implying a range of $11.88 billion-$12.13 billion.
Analysts on average had expected revenue of $12.51 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
The company also said it extended a restructuring plan to include an additional 1,100 job cuts and expected to take $150 million in pretax charges.
Cisco said in August it would cut 5,500 jobs.
The company reported its sixth straight decline in quarterly revenue, largely due to a weak demand in its router business.
Cisco, like other legacy technology players, is shifting its focus to high-growth areas such as security, the internet of things and cloud computing.
The company’s net income rose to $2.52 billion, or 50 cents per share, in the third quarter ended April 29 from $2.35 billion, or 46 cents per share, a year earlier.
Excluding items, the company earned 60 cents per share.
