Microsoft Posts $30.1 Billion In Q4 Revenue

It’s that time of the year again. That time when Microsoft reveals its quarterly results. And this time around, the company had some splendid numbers to post.

Revenue increased 17% year-over-year, to end up at $30.085 billion in Q4, up from the $25.605 in the fourth quarter of last year.

Broken down into the three Microsoft segments, Productivity and Business Processes made $9.7 billion, Intelligent Cloud $9.6 billion and More Personal Computing, $10.8 billion. The three segments therefore saw 13%, 23% and 17% growth.

Which is impressive.

Net income came in at $8.9 billion, equally impressive.

Several units performed remarkably well during this time span, including Surface. The premium hardware division saw an uptick in revenue by 25%, which according to Microsoft is due to the strong performance of the latest models.

The Surface Go, obviously, is not included in these numbers.

Gaming revenue also increased by 39%, with the Xbox software and services unit recording a growth of a solid 36%.

On the Windows side of things, we have Windows OEM revenue increasing by 7% thanks to OEM Pro revenue growing by 14%. Windows commercial products and cloud services also witnessed a 23% increase, driven by an increased volume of multi-year agreements primarily.

For the fiscal year 2018, Microsoft reports an overall revenue increase of 14% to reach figures of $110.4 billion, while operating income also saw an uptick of 21% to $35.1 billion.

Solid stuff.

All round.
