"Strong sales helped Red Hat's first fiscal quarter 2009 get a healthy increase"
Strong sales helped Red Hat's first fiscal quarter 2009 get a healthy increase of cash flow, but internal investments and taxes somewhat stymied the Linux licenser's end results.

er......no it doesn't
If you knew what a quarter was and also read the article was then you'd know that Red Hat's 'first fiscal quarter 2009' is the three month period that ended May 31st.
Since the figures have been reported, and it's all written in the past tense, it must be this year (2008).
