"We're pleased with overall results in the first quarter of our new go-to-market structure and the demand velocity we saw in a challenging component cost environment," said Tom Sweet, chief financial officer, Dell Technologies Inc. "I'm encouraged by these achievements and excited about the opportunities ahead as we continue to provide a broad portfolio of solutions for our customers' digital transformations."

1 Due to the EMC transaction and to a lesser extent the Dell going-private transaction, significant non-cash bridging items will remain between GAAP and non-GAAP results for the next few years. Prior-year historical Dell Technologies financials do not include EMC historical results, thereby impacting most year-over-year comparisons.
