Dell Inc. said its profit fell 48% during fiscal 4Q and it expects to make additional cuts to its work force. Earnings for the quarter that ended Jan. 30 fell to US$351 million. Profit fell 16% to $2.48 billion and revenue was flat at $61.1 billion.

"We can't predict how long this slowdown will last," said Brian Gladden, Dell's chief financial officer. "We expect it to be protracted."

Revenue declined across all of Dell's product divisions. Corporations based in the Americas, which make up the biggest slice of Dell's sales, spent 17% less than in the prior year. Sales to companies in the rest of the world also dropped by double digits.

The company gave no further details on timing or extent of possible job cuts, nor did it say how many workers accepted voluntary severance packages offered last November. Dell's full-time employee total dropped to 76,500 people 1,200 less than in the previous quarter.
