Google has delivered their 2nd fiscal quarter results for the year. Drumroll, please.
The internet (and hardware) giant reported consolidated revenue of $14.1 billion (that’s up 19 percent from the same quarter, a year ago), net income of $3.23 billion, and non-GAAP earnings per share of $9.56. To add to that, 93 percent of those profits were generated directly by Google properties, most notably massive advertising networks. $12.1 billion of its gross was thanks to advertising, while Motorola’s efforts equate to less than $1 billion in revenues, but the $998 million generated counts, regardless.
Net income pocketed by the Googlers stands at $3.23 billion, which is no record by any means, but with $54.4 billion stashed away for a very, very bad day. In the meantime, Google looks forward to the next quarter — and so do we.
