Last week was the presentation of the financial results of large companies that populate our daily news. Among them we forgot one major player: Microsoft. The Redmond giant shows yet an Olympic shape: 17.37 billion turnover (+ 8% over 2010) and 5.87 billion net profit (+30% compared to 2010) for the quarter.
In fiscal year 2011 (ended June 30) Microsoft has made 69.94 billion dollars in sales, up 12%. Similarly, the operating profit increased by 13% (27.16 billion) and net income increased 23% (23.15 billion U.S. dollars).
In detail, almost all divisions of the company are growing:
Microsoft Business Division: CA + 16% over the year thanks to the success of Office 2010, including more than 100 million copies have been sold Server & Tools: + 11% over the year with Windows Server, and System Center SQL Server Online Services Division: + 15% market share of Bing have progressed to 14.4% in USA Entertainment & Devices Division: CA + 45% over the year, dominating the Xbox 360 console sales to U.S. and Kinect continuing its breakthrough Windows and Windows Live Division: – 2% over the year. However, Microsoft said it had artificially inflated the results of this division by delaying sales revenue of Windows 7last year. Excluding the spin book, Microsoft estimates that the turnover of the branch Windows would increase 2 to 4%, which corresponds to the trend of PC sales worldwide.
