VMware has announced financial results for the second quarter of 2014, with revenues at $1,46-billion – an increase of 17% from the second quarter of 2013.

Excluding revenues attributable to Pivotal and all divestitures that occurred in 2013, revenues for the second quarter increased 18% from the second quarter of 2013.

Operating income for the second quarter was $200-million, a decrease of 26% from the second quarter of 2013, reflecting the impact of the AirWatch acquisition. Non-GAAP operating income for the second quarter was $428-million, an increase of 3% from the second quarter of 2013, also reflecting the impact of the AirWatch acquisition.

Net income for the second quarter was $167-million, or $0.38 per diluted share, down 32% per diluted share compared to $245-million, or $0.57 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2013. Non-GAAP net income for the quarter was $351-million, or $0.81 per diluted share, up 2% per diluted share compared to $343-million, or $0.79 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2013.

Both GAAP and Non-GAAP results on a year-over-year basis primarily reflect the acquisition of Airwatch, completed in the first quarter of 2014.

Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments were $6.64-billion, and unearned revenues were $4.39-billion as of June 30, 2014.
