Yesterday it was Apple’s turn to release its earnings, and today it’s Microsoft’s. Microsoft’s financials for the second fiscal quarter of 2013 were actually pretty solid, the company posted revenue of $21.46 billion and net income of $6.38 billion, with earnings per share of 76 cents. Which for the most part is exactly what Wall Street had expected, though the actual numbers were a bit lower on the revenue side and higher on the earnings side. Most analysts thought Microsoft would post earnings of 75 cents a share on $21.53 billion in revenue.
If you want a break down of the Microsoft’s revenue in Q2 2013, we have that too. The Windows Division posted revenue of $5.88 billion, a 24 percent increase year-over-year; the Server & Tools business reported $5.19 billion of revenue, up 9 percent year-over-year; the Microsoft Business Division posted $5.69 billion of revenue, a 10 percent decrease year-over-year; the Online Services Division reported revenue of $869 million, up 11 percent year-over-year; and the Entertainment and Devices Division posted revenue of $3.77 billion, down 11 percent year-over-year.
