Microsoft Q2 2013

New results are out!

As usually, let’s focus on the online services division. First, the income:

2010 2011 2012 2013
Q1 490 547 641 697
Q2 581 713 784 869
Q3 566 667 707
Q4 565 680 735

Then the losses:

2010 2011 2012 2013
Q1 -480 -573 -513 -364
Q2 -466 -559 -458 -283
Q3 -713 -775 -479
Q4 -696 -744 ?

The trend towards profitability is more and more visible. This quarter saw Microsoft’s online services division’s biggest revenue ever (since Bing), and smallest loss! Obvisouly, they’re on the right track. At that pace, my prediction is that profitability could as well be reached as soon as in Q2 2014.
