Total Revenues: $872.96M average, $861.82M low estimate, $880.00M high estimate, 29 analysts
Earnings per Share: $0.47 average, $0.45 low estimate, $0.51 high estimate, 33 analysts

Current Q2 2011 VMware Outlook
* Revenue: $860M - $880M

Prior Q1 2011 Financial Results
When VMware reports calendar Q2 2011, the 3 months ended June, financial results on July 19, VMware should meet or beat various calendar Q1 2011 results. These financial results are charted on the VMware Financial Performance page. VMware for calendar Q1 2011, the 3 months ended March, financial results were:
Total Revenues $843.72M
Operating Income $153.50M
Net Income $125.81M
Earnings per Share $0.29
Gross Profit Margin 82.23%
Operating Income Margin 18.19%
Net Income Margin 14.91%

VMware Q2 2011 financial results should meet and exceed Q1 2011 in some areas. The analysts' average Earnings Per Share estimate for Q1 + Q2 is $0.47, or $0.18 for Q1. which is an -38% decrease from Q1 EPS of $0.29. This appears a conservative estimate, as Q2 should beat Q1. The analysts' average Total Revenues of $872.96M is reasonable, about VMware's guidance of $860M - $880M. VMware should meet, and beat, their own guidance. For Q2 2011, VMware should beat Q1 2011 on Total Revenues, Operating Income, Net Income, and Earnings per Share. Any misses will be a disappointment. VMware should be close to, and perhaps beat, Gross Profit Margin, Operating Income Margin, and Net Income Margin. Any beat on margins would result in greater performance. The detailed quarter by quarter charts are on the VMware Financial Performance page.
