Lower Operating Expenses Narrow Microsoft's Revenue Gap in Difficult Economic Environment

Microsoft today announced revenue of $13.65 billion for the third quarter ended March 31, 2009, a 6% decline from the same period of the prior year.

Operating income, net income and diluted earnings per share for the quarter were $4.44 billion, $2.98 billion and $0.33 per share, which represented an increase of 3% and declines of 32% and 30%, respectively, when compared with the prior year period.

The financial results for the third quarter ended March 31, 2009, included $290 million of severance charges related to the previously announced plan to reduce up to 5,000 positions and $420 million of impairments to investments. Combined, these two charges reduced earnings per share by $0.06.

Revenue in Client, Microsoft Business Division, and Server & Tools was negatively impacted by weakness in the global PC and Server markets, Microsoft said. Revenue from enterprise customers remained stable during the quarter.

"With our continued R&D investment and our broad suite of products and services, we remain in a great position to compete and gain share in the marketplace," said Kevin Turner, chief operating officer at Microsoft. During the quarter, Microsoft released the beta version of the Windows 7 operating system, which remains on track for a fiscal year 2010 launch, Microsoft said. Development milestones were achieved on other products including Microsoft Office 2010, Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Mobile.

"While market conditions remained weak during the quarter, I was pleased with the organization?s ability to offset revenue pressures with the swift implementation of cost-savings initiatives," said Chris Liddell, chief financial officer at Microsoft. "We expect the weakness to continue through at least the next quarter."
