La compa�??�?�±ia proveedora de soluciones de codigo abierto para el segmento empresarial, Red Hat, cerro el pasado 28 de febrero su ejercicio fiscal 2005 con una cifra total de ingresos de 196,5 millones de dolares, lo que supone un incremento del 56 por ciento en comparacion con los 126,1 millones de la misma moneda cosechados en el ejercicio previo. El beneficio neto de la compani�??�?�­a, que a principios de este a�??�?�±o abria oficinas en Espa�???�??�?�±a, ascendia por su parte a 45,4 millones de dolares, lo que significa triplicar las ganancias de 14 millones de dolares que conseguia el a�??�?�±o anterior.

Del montante total de ingresos de la compa�??�?�±i�??�?�­a, 147,4 millones de dolares proceden del negocio de suscripciones empresariales, que gozo de un incremento del 120 por ciento respecto al ejercicio fiscal 2004. La compa�??�?�±ia marco un record al registrar 175.000 suscripciones nuevas o renovadas. Nuestros ingresos por suscripcion de empresas multiplican por un factor de seis los obtenidos por el segundo proveedor de Linux, afirmo el vicepresidente ejecutivo y director financiero de Red Hat, Charlie Peters, quien a�??�?�±adia que son muchos los analistas del sector que consideran que Linux continuara siendo el sistema operativo de mayor crecimiento en los proximos tres a cinco a�??�?�±os y estamos convencidos de nuestra capacidad para competir en ese mercado.

Al cierre del ejercicio, el numero de plataformas y aplicaciones hardware y software con soporte a Red Hat Enterprise Linux superaba las 1.800, cifra que representa un aumento superior al 80 por ciento en comparacion con el ejercicio previo.
