Ro, 22 July 2018

Microsoft published its financial report for the fiscal Q4 (ending in June) and the company has seen a 17% revenue growth ($30.1 billion) over last year.

The company's operating income grew 35% to around $10.4 billion with net income of $8.9 billion GAAP and $8.8 billion non-GAAP. That translates into $1.14 GAAP earnings per share and $1.13 non-GAAP. Microsoft returned $5.3 billion to shareholders this in Q4, through dividends and share repurchases.

Most of the Microsoft operations have seen significant growth in revenue - double digits in most of them. Here are some of them:

  • Productivity and Business Processes - $9.7 billion (13% increase)
  • Office commercial products and cloud services - 10% increase mostly thanks to Office 365 and LinkedIn
  • Intelligent Cloud - $9.6 billion ($23 increase)
  • Server products and cloud services - 26% growth thanks to Azure
  • Windows OEM - 7% gains thanks to the 14% growth of the OEM Pro
  • Windows commercial products and cloud services - 23% increase
  • Gaming - 39% growth thanks to Xbox
  • Surface - 25% increase
  • Search advertising - 17% increase

I was on Windows 8.1.. and I stayed.. I had 3 laptops with Windows 10 and they all are giving me a headache.. They are slower than 8.1 even though they had more powerful core i5.. My desktop with just AMD A10 and Windows 8.1 flies circles around them

Pretty sure you did not want to show a # with random numbers. No one would.
