Information about Dell Technologies’ use of non-GAAP financial information is provided under “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below. All comparisons in this press release are year-over-year unless otherwise noted.

Dell Technologies ended the quarter with a cash and investments balance of $10.2 billion. The company repaid approximately $1.5 billion of gross debt in the quarter and $5 billion for the year, achieving its fiscal 2020 target. The company has paid down $19.5 billion in gross debt since closing the EMC transaction in September 2016.

“This year’s results were driven by operational focus and expanding synergies across Dell Technologies and our ability to adjust to win in any environment,” said Tom Sweet, chief financial officer, Dell Technologies. “We delivered full year net income of $5.5 billion and adjusted EBITDA of $11.8 billion in fiscal 2020. I’m pleased with our profitability and remain committed to maximizing Dell Technologies’ equity value for all aligned shareholders.”

The company also announced today a new share repurchase program of up to $1 billion over the next 24 months, effective immediately. While de-levering remains the primary capital allocation goal, the company sees an opportunity to take advantage of what it believes is a significant discount in the current stock price. This share repurchase plan is another lever the company will use as it continues to focus on creating value for shareholders.
