Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ ) has reported its fiscal Q1 2013 results. For the quarter, the company's net revenue slumped 6% on a year-over-year basis, to $28.4 billion. Non-GAAP earnings fell 12% over the same time span, to $1.6 billion ($0.82 per diluted share), from Q1 2012's $1.8 billion ($0.92).
In spite of the declines, those numbers still beat analyst expectations. On average, they projected top line of $27.8 billion, and EPS of $0.71.
CEO Meg Whitman attributed the better-than-anticipated results to "improved execution, improvement in our channel and go-to-market efforts and the impact of the restructuring program we introduced in May 2012."
HP also provided EPS guidance for current and future periods. It expects non-GAAP diluted earnings to come in at $0.80-$0.82 per share in its current quarter, and $3.40-$3.60 for the entirety of fiscal 2013.
