Symantec revenues, profit go higher than expected in Q3 amid end of Audit Committee probe

Friday 2 November 2018 | 11:44 CET | News
Symantec reported higher than expected results for its fiscal second quarter 2019 and reiterated its full year guidance. CEO Greg Clark said the company has now completed its Audit Committee investigation and the audit of its fiscal 2018 financial report. With this behind, Clark expects the company's Enterprise Security to regain momentum in the second half of the fiscal year, also on the back of a seasonally stronger period. The dividend for the quarter is set at USD 0.075 per share.
