Microsoft Corp (MSFT)
Earnings Release FY14 Q3
Results driven primarily by increased Windows OEM and Office Consumer revenue
Windows OEM revenue up 4%
Windows OEM Pro revenue up 19%, driven by:
Business PCs growth; mix to developed markets where attach is higher; continued enterprise strength; and increased Pro mix in small and medium businesses
Windows OEM non-Pro revenue down 15%
Excluding the impact of China, non-Pro revenue down 9%
Office Consumer revenue up 15%
Office Consumer revenue grew due to strong attach gains and higher sales in Japan ahead of a national tax increase

D&C Licensing revenue increased slightly, due mainly to higher revenue from licenses of Consumer Office and Consumer Windows, including the impact of the expiration of support for Windows XP and higher volume in Japan. Consumer Office revenue increased 15%, due mainly to higher volumes of licenses sold, offset in part by the impact on revenue of continued softness in the consumer PC market. Windows OEM revenue increased 4%, reflecting a 19% increase in OEM Pro revenue, offset in part by continued softness in the consumer PC market.

D&C Licensing gross margin decreased slightly, due mainly to an increase in cost of revenue.
