Re: 37 / 1350 mln
I'd be very worried, except for the fact that you're dividing *quarterly* net income by *annual* revenue. Which is a bit silly.
"Total revenues were $314.7m, rising 18.9 per cent, and net income was $37.5m, up 15.4 per cent."
You should be dividing 37.5 into 314.7. Which is, oh, solidly north of 10%.
Admittedly, the last paragraph seems confusing. Presumably the 1.32-1.34 billion range is for annual revenue, not quarterly. There's no way we're making 1.3bn per quarter (yes, we, I work for Red Hat, do take this into account as you...read the numbers I pulled straight out of the article.)
