The final figure of $71 million for operating cash flow secured a successful results call for the company.

"Top line growth of 21 per cent and even faster operating income growth, contributed to a 31 per cent increase in operating cash flow," said Charlie Peters, executive vice president and chief financial officer (CFO) of Red Hat.

"We are well positioned at the confluence of several hot areas of IT: open source, virtualisation and cloud computing we are executing consistently and we are making focused investments in growth initiatives."
