Microsoft Reports Record Revenue But Lower Profits In Second Quarter


Microsoft reported a dip in fiscal second-quarter profit on Thursday despite the solid start for its new Windows 8 operating system, mainly due to lower sales of the Xbox 360 and Office.

"With new Windows devices, including Surface Pro, and the new Office on the horizon, we'll continue to drive excitement for the Windows ecosystem and deliver our software through devices and services people love and businesses need."

Microsoft did not detail sales of its new Surface tablet - a direct competitor to the iPad - although chief financial officer Peter Klein said the company was expanding production and distribution.

The Server & Tools business reported $5.19 billion of revenue, a 9% increase from the prior year period, driven by double-digit percentage revenue growth in SQL Server and System Center.

The Microsoft Business Division posted $5.69 billion of revenue, a 10% decrease from the prior year period. evenue from Microsoft's productivity server offerings - collectively including Lync, SharePoint, and Exchange - continued double-digit percentage growth.

The Online Services Division reported revenue of $869 million, an 11% increase from the prior year period. Online advertising revenue grew 15% driven by an increase in revenue per search.
