"The early synergies in both product development and sales from Altiris and Vontu have been encouraging, as they help to underpin new growth initiatives for our company," Thompson said. "It is my belief that these types of acquisitions should add new top-line growth for Symantec and help improve our operating returns. I would expect us to continue to look for acquisitions that drive revenue growth and enhance our net income."In the fiscal year that ended in December, Symantec's revenue topped $1.52 billion, with $132 million in net income.
What is your opinion here: Will Symantec's strategy result in better products at the end of the day?
