Microsoft has published its Q2 2014 earnings report, and the company has made $6.56 billion in net income on $24.52 billion in revenue. Revenue has increased by 14 percent from the same period last year, and net income increased by 2.8 percent.
For consumer-related revenues, all eyes are on four parts of Microsoft’s business: Windows, Office consumer subscriptions, Surface, and Xbox. A decline in PC sales continues to impact Windows, with OEM revenue for Windows declining by 3 percent this quarter. While Office 365 Home Premium subscribers doubled to 2 million in just six months previously, Microsoft is revealing today that the figure has risen to 3.5 million subscribers in the latest quarter.
