I'm not an economics expert but to my knowledge "revenue" is the ENTIRE amount of money a corporation takes in.....not just the profit.

The REVENUE may have declined but if their OVERHEAD (cost to operate the company) has also dropped significantly then they'll still come out ahead and quite possibly better than when they were receiving more overall revenue.

A lot of these corporations have slashed so much overhead that even when their overall income declines they make a killing in profits.
