“We delivered record revenue as demand for our business offerings remains high and we made strong progress in our Devices and Consumer segment,” added Amy Hood, chief financial officer at Microsoft. “These results reflect our focus on execution, cost discipline, and long-term shareholder value as we continue to drive the strategic transformation of the company.”
To finish off the stats, Microsoft finally revealed that their overall revenue for the quarter was $24.52 billion, up from $21.46 billion during the same quarter in 2012.
