Windows Vista and Office boost Microsoft's sales

Posted on Friday, April 27 2007 @ 16:30:42 CEST by

Microsoft's financial results were better than predictions from Wall Street analysts. In the first quarter of this year the company had a revenue of $14.40 billion with net earnings of $4.93 billion, or 50 cents per share.

A year ago Microsoft had a net income of $2.98 billion, or 29 cents per share, on a revenue of $10.9 billion, CNET reports.
The quarter's earnings were boosted by a 2 cent per share tax benefit and legal charges that dented per-share earnings by a penny. Excluding those items, the company would have posted earnings of 49 cents per share, ahead of the 46 cents that analysts were projecting, according to First Call.

In January, Microsoft said to expect revenue between $13.7 billion and $14 billion and per-share earnings of 46 cents or 47 cents.

Microsoft's revenue and profits included some money that was deferred from earlier quarters as part of a Vista upgrade program. The deferred money accounted for $1.67 billion in revenue and accounted for 12 cents per share in earnings.

"This quarter marked the consumer launches of Windows Vista and the 2007 Microsoft Office system, and we are delighted with the positive customer response these products have received," Chief Operating Officer Kevin Turner said in a statement.
