Juniper offers cost cuts, dividend after Elliott pressure

Friday 21 February 2014 | 08:37 CET | News
Juniper Networks announced plans for significant cost reductions and a major return of capital to shareholders. The company targets a reduction of USD 160 million in operating costs by Q1 2015 compared to Q4 2013, helping it achieve a 25 percent operating margin in 2015. This is an improvement of 580 basis points from 2013. CEO Shaygan Kheradpir will lead a Cost Control Committee, and Juniper hired McKinsey to help with the restructuring. Juniper also committed to return a minimum USD 3 billion to shareholders over the next three years through a combination of share repurchases and dividends.
