by Volker Weber

Redmond, Wash. — July 23, 2009 — Microsoft Corp. today announced revenue of $13.10 billion for the fourth quarter ended June 30, 2009, a 17% decline from the same period of the prior year. Operating income, net income and diluted earnings per share for the quarter were $3.99 billion, $3.05 billion and $0.34 per share, which represented declines of 30%, 29% and 26%, respectively, when compared with the prior year period.

Well, if they give me $50,000,000 from last quarter, they are still making 3 billion. A quarter.

Sure, but those 3 Billion are revenue, not profit. Their expenses are probably quite big as well.

No Pedro.

The $13 Billion is revenue. The $3 Billion is earnings (profit).
