Microsoft Reports Record Revenue in Second Quarter


Microsoft today announced revenue of $24.52 billion for the quarter ended December 31, 2013, as the company sold 3.9 million Xbox One consoles and doubled revenue from its line of Surface tablets from a quarter earlier.

Microsoft's gross margin, operating income, net income, and diluted earnings per share for the quarter were $16.24 billion, $7.97 billion, $6.56 billion, and $0.78 per share, respectively.

"Our Commercial segment continues to outpace the overall market, and our Devices and Consumer segment had a great holiday quarter," said Steve Ballmer, chief executive officer at Microsoft. "The investments we are making in devices and services that deliver high-value experiences to our customers, and the work we are doing with our partners, are driving strong results and positioning us well for long-term growth."

"We delivered record revenue as demand for our business offerings remains high and we made strong progress in our Devices and Consumer segment," said Amy Hood, chief financial officer at Microsoft.

Windows OEM revenue declined 3%, reflecting strong 12% growth in Windows OEM Pro revenue, offset by continued softness in the consumer PC market.

Surface revenue more than doubled sequentially, from $400 million in the first quarter to $893 million in the second quarter.

The company sold 7.4 million Xbox console units into the retail channel, including 3.9 million Xbox One consoles and 3.5 million Xbox 360 consoles.

Bing search share grew to 18.2% and search advertising revenue grew 34%.

Last but not least, commercial revenue (SQL Server, System Center, Commercial cloud services, Office 365) grew 10% to $12.67 billion.

"We significantly outpaced enterprise IT spend as we continue to take share from our competitors by delivering the devices and services our customers need as they transition to the cloud," said Kevin Turner, chief operating officer at Microsoft. "Our commercial cloud services revenue grew more than 100% year-over-year, as customers are embracing Office 365, Azure, and Dynamics CRM Online, and making long-term commitments to the Microsoft platform."
