EMC achieved year-to-date operating cash flow of $2.2 billion and free cash flow2 of $1.6 billion. The company ended the second quarter with $9.5 billion in cash and investments.
Joe Tucci, EMC Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Our record-setting performance during the quarter was marked by balanced growth, solid execution and significant technology innovation as customers around the world continue to embrace EMC’s cloud computing and Big Data strategies. It is our firm belief that this strategy is well-placed and underpinned with winning products and services and strategic partners. We remain confident in our ability to continue delivering strong results this year and over the long term. Furthermore, we remain committed to investing heavily to extend our technology lead and help customers and service provider partners accelerate their IT and business model transformations.”
David Goulden, EMC Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, said, “EMC’s second-quarter results are further evidence that our strategy is on target and that we continue to execute our financial 'triple play' – gaining market share, investing aggressively to take full advantage of the massive opportunities at the intersection of cloud computing and Big Data, and improving profitability. Our focus on providing technology and services that accelerate our customers’ journey to the cloud and enable them to leverage their data for more competitive advantage is resonating strongly in the market. Given the strong results we have achieved this year and the opportunity we see for the remainder of 2011, we are raising our financial outlook for the year. We now expect to exceed 2011 consolidated revenue of $19.8 billion, GAAP EPS of $1.07 and non-GAAP EPS of $1.48.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This release, the accompanying schedules and the additional content that is available on EMC's website contain non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures, which are used as measures of EMC's performance or liquidity, should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, measures of EMC's financial performance or liquidity prepared in accordance with GAAP. EMC's non-GAAP financial measures may be defined differently from time to time and may be defined differently than similar terms used by other companies, and accordingly, care should be exercised in understanding how EMC defines its non-GAAP financial measures in this release.
Where specified in the accompanying schedules for various periods entitled "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP," certain items noted on each such specific schedule (including, where noted, amounts relating to restructuring and acquisition-related charges, stock-based compensation expense, intangible asset amortization, a non-recurring gain on strategic investments and an RSA special charge) are excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures.
EMC's management uses the non-GAAP financial measures in the accompanying schedules to gain an understanding of EMC's comparative operating performance (when comparing such results with previous periods or forecasts) and future prospects and excludes the above-listed items from its internal financial statements for purposes of its internal budgets and each reporting segment's financial goals. These non-GAAP financial measures are used by EMC's management in their financial and operating decision-making because management believes they reflect EMC's ongoing business in a manner that allows meaningful period-to-period comparisons. EMC's management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors and others (a) in understanding and evaluating EMC's current operating performance and future prospects in the same manner as management does, if they so choose, and (b) in comparing in a consistent manner the Company's current financial results with the Company's past financial results.
This release also includes disclosures regarding free cash flow which is a non-GAAP financial measure. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities less additions to property, plant and equipment and capitalized software development costs. EMC uses free cash flow, among other measures, to evaluate the ability of its operations to generate cash that is available for purposes other than capital expenditures and capitalized software development costs. Management believes that information regarding free cash flow provides investors with an important perspective on the cash available to make strategic acquisitions and investments, repurchase shares, service debt and fund ongoing operations. As free cash flow is not a measure of liquidity calculated in accordance with GAAP, free cash flow should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the analysis provided in the statement of cash flows.
All of the foregoing non-GAAP financial measures have limitations. Specifically, the non-GAAP financial measures that exclude the items noted above do not include all items of income and expense that affect EMC's operations. Further, these non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, may not be comparable to non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies and do not reflect any benefit that such items may confer on EMC. Management compensates for these limitations by also considering EMC's financial results as determined in accordance with GAAP.
