Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO) announced on Wednesday a reduction in its full-year forecast and provided weaker guidance for the current quarter, alongside revealing a restructuring plan that includes eliminating 5% of its global workforce. As a consequence, the company’s shares dropped more than 3% pre-market on Thursday.

The revised full-year outlook now anticipates adjusted earnings per share (EPS) between $3.68 and $3.74, with revenue projections between $51.5 billion and $52.5 billion. This adjustment is a downturn from previous forecasts, which expected an adjusted EPS between $3.87 and $3.93 on revenue ranging from $53.8 billion to $55.0 billion.

For fiscal Q2, Cisco reported an adjusted EPS of $0.87 on revenue of $12.8 billion, slightly above the expectations of analysts, who had predicted an EPS of $0.84 on revenue of $12.71 billion.

The company saw a 9% year-over-year decline in product revenue, which constitutes the majority of its total revenue, while service revenue experienced a 4% increase.

For the upcoming fiscal Q3, Cisco is forecasting an adjusted EPS between $0.84 and $0.86, with revenue expected to be in the range of $12.1 billion to $12.3 billion. These figures fall short of analyst expectations, which were set at an EPS of $0.91 and revenue of $13.13 billion.
