SCHAUMBURG – Motorola Solutions reported first-quarter 2013 sales of $2 billion, up 1 percent from the first quarter of 2012. Government sales were up 3 percent while enterprise sales were down 4 percent.

“Despite a challenging enterprise market and modest revenue growth in the first quarter, our disciplined focus on cost management and return of capital to shareholders delivered double-digit growth in earnings per share,” said Greg Brown, chairman and CEO of Motorola Solutions. “We remain confident in the fundamental drivers of the business and our ability to drive improved operating earnings for the year.”

Earnings in the first quarter of 2013 were $216 million or 10.9 percent of sales, compared to $232 million or 11.9 percent of sales in the first quarter of 2012.
