Long-awaited results

SCO Group

to discuss 2006 earnings, layoffs

The SCO Group, long tight-lipped about issues ranging from its recent courtroom setbacks and finances to rumored layoffs, has set a conference call for 3 p.m. Jan. 17.

The Lindon company, best known for its $5 billion Linux-related lawsuit against IBM, said Monday it will release its long-awaited fourth quarter and fiscal 2006 earnings results after the close of trading that day.

For months, SCO officials have refused to discuss results for the quarter and fiscal year ending Oct. 31 or the scope of workforce reductions that purportedly came in the wake of declining sales.

Such matters, SCO spokesman Blake Stowell has said, would be addressed at a teleconference accompanying the earnings release.
