Microsoft Reports Fourth-Quarter Results

The company delivered operational efficiency and innovation in a difficult environment.

 

Redmond, Wash. – July 23, 2009 – Microsoft Corp. today announced revenue of $13.10 billion for the fourth quarter ended June 30, 2009, a 17% decline from the same period of the prior year.  Operating income, net income and diluted earnings per share for the quarter were $3.99 billion, $3.05 billion and $0.34 per share, which represented declines of 30%, 29% and 26%, respectively, when compared with the prior year period.

“Our business continued to be negatively impacted by weakness in the global PC and server markets,” said Chris Liddell, chief financial officer at Microsoft. “In light of that environment, it was an excellent achievement to deliver over $750 million of operational savings compared to the prior year quarter.”

The financial results for the fourth quarter ended June 30, 2009, included the deferral of $276 million of revenue related to the Windows 7 Upgrade Option program that was announced on June 25, 2009. This revenue deferral reduced earnings per share by $0.02.    

The fourth-quarter financial results also included $193 million of legal charges, $108 million of impairments to investments and $40 million of additional severance charges related to the previously announced plan.   Operating expenses were reduced by $105 million of capitalized research and development expenses due to the technical milestones reached for Windows 7. Combined, these items also reduced earnings per share by $0.02.

Significant product milestones were achieved in the quarter including the releases of Windows 7 release candidate, Windows Server 2008 R2 release candidate, as well as Bing, Microsoft’s search engine designed to help people make faster, more informed decisions.

For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2009, Microsoft reported revenue of $58.44 billion, a 3% decline from the prior year. Operating income, net income and diluted earnings per share for the year were $20.36 billion, $14.57 billion and $1.62, which represented declines of 9%, 18% and 13% respectively.

“While economic conditions presented challenges this year, we maintained our focus on delivering customer satisfaction and providing solutions to our customers to save money,” said Kevin Turner, chief operating officer at Microsoft.  “I am very excited by the wave of product and services innovations being delivered in this next fiscal year.”

Business Outlook

Microsoft is providing operating expense guidance of $26.6 billion to $26.9 billion, for the full year ending June 30, 2010.

Three months ended June 30, 2009 compared with three months ended June 30, 2008

 
 
Revenue declined across all segments driven primarily by weakness in the global PC market and the unfavorable economic environment. Primary factors contributing to the decline include the following:

 
 
  • Revenue from Windows operating systems declined reflecting PC market weakness, especially PCs sold to businesses, and a decline in the OEM premium mix. Revenue from Windows was also impacted by a $276 million deferral for the Windows 7 Upgrade Option program. The program, which started June 26, 2009, allows customers who purchase PCs from participating computer makers or retailers with certain versions of Windows Vista to receive an upgrade to the corresponding version of Windows 7 at minimal or no cost. In addition, purchasers of retail packaged Windows Vista from participating retailers in participating markets may qualify for a free or discounted upgrade to the equivalent Windows 7 product. We expect to launch Windows 7, our most recent version of the Windows operating system, in the first half of fiscal year 2010.

  •  
     
  • Revenue from the 2007 Microsoft Office system decreased reflecting PC market weakness, a shift to lower-priced products, and pricing promotions.

  •  
     
  • Revenue from our Entertainment and Devices Division decreased across most lines of business including Xbox 360 platform and PC game revenue which declined primarily as a result of decreased console sales and revenue per console due to price reductions during the past 12 months, partially offset by increased Xbox Live revenue.

  •  
     
  • Foreign currency exchange rates accounted for a $219 million or one percentage point decrease in revenue.

  •  
     
    Operating income declined primarily driven by decreased revenue, partially offset by decreased operating expenses. The reduction in operating expenses included cost savings as a result of the resource management program implemented in January 2009 described below. The following components contributed to the overall decrease in operating expenses:

     
     
  • General and administrative expenses increased $67 million or 7%, primarily driven by increased costs for legal settlements and legal contingencies, partially offset by decreased professional consulting fees as a result of the resource management program. We incurred $193 million of legal charges during the three months ended June 30, 2009.

  •  
     
  • Sales and marketing expenses decreased $691 million or 18%, primarily driven by the resource management program. As part of that plan, we reduced marketing and headcount-related expenses.

  •  
     
  • Cost of revenue decreased $280 million or 10%, primarily reflecting decreased Xbox 360 platform costs and decreased costs associated with the decline in consulting services provided, partially offset by increased online traffic acquisition costs.

  •  
     
  • Headcount-related expenses decreased 6%, primarily driven by the resource management plan.

  •  
     
    Diluted earnings per share declined reflecting decreased net income, partially offset by share repurchases during the fiscal year. While we did not repurchase any shares during the three months ended June 30, 2009, we repurchased 318 million shares during the first nine months of fiscal year 2009.

     
     
    Twelve months ended June 30, 2009 compared with twelve months ended June 30, 2008

     
     
    Revenue declined across most segments primarily driven by weakness in the global PC market and the unfavorable economic environment. Foreign currency exchange rates accounted for a $486 million or one percentage point increase in revenue. Primary factors contributing to the decline include the following:

     
     
    Revenue from Windows operating systems declined reflecting PC market weakness, especially PCs sold to businesses, and a decline in the OEM premium mix.

     
     
    Revenue from our Entertainment and Devices Division decreased across most lines of business including Xbox 360 platform and PC game revenue which declined primarily as a result of decreased revenue per console due to price reductions during the past 12 months, partially offset by increased console sales and Xbox Live revenue. The above declines were partially offset by increased server and server application revenue, reflecting recognition of deferred revenue from previously signed agreements and continued adoption of the Windows Server Platform and applications through SQL Server, Enterprise CAL Suites, and System Center products.

     
     
    Operating income decreased primarily reflecting decreased revenue. Operating expenses were flat with decreased general and administrative and sales and marketing expenses offset by increased headcount-related expenses, cost of revenue, and employee severance charges.

     
     
    General and administrative expenses decreased $1.4 billion or 28%, primarily due to decreased costs for legal settlements and contingencies. We incurred $283 million of legal charges during the twelve months ended June 30, 2009 as compared to $1.8 billion during the twelve months ended June 30, 2008. The prior year costs were primarily related to the European Commission fine of $1.4 billion (€899 million).

     
     
    Sales and marketing expenses decreased $381 million or 3%, primarily driven by the resource management program. As part of that plan, we reduced marketing and advertising expenses.

     
     
    Headcount-related expenses, excluding $330 million of employee severance charges, increased 7%, driven by a 2% increase in headcount during the past 12 months and an increase in salaries and benefits for existing headcount.

     
     
    Cost of revenue increased $557 million or 5%, primarily reflecting increased online costs, including online traffic acquisition, data center and equipment, and headcount-related costs, partially offset by decreased Xbox 360 platform costs.

     
     
    In January 2009, we announced and implemented a resource management program to reduce discretionary operating expenses, employee headcount, and capital expenditures. As part of this program, we are eliminating up to 5,000 positions in research and development, marketing, sales, finance, legal, human resources, and information technology by June 30, 2010. During the twelve months ended June 30, 2009, we recorded employee severance charges of $330 million for the expected reduction in headcount.

     
     
    Diluted earnings per share declined primarily reflecting decreased net income, partially offset by share repurchases during the past 12 months. We repurchased 318 million shares during the twelve months ended June 30, 2009.

     
     
    On July 22, 2009, the Company announced that Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 were released to manufacturing. General availability for both products is expected to be October 22, 2009.

    Client offerings consist of premium and standard edition Windows operating systems. Premium editions are those that include additional functionality and are sold at a price above our standard editions. Premium editions include Windows Vista Business, Windows Vista Home Premium, Windows Vista Ultimate, Windows Vista Enterprise, Windows XP Professional, Windows XP Media Center, and Windows XP Tablet PC. Standard editions include Windows Vista Home Basic and Windows XP Home. Client revenue growth is directly impacted by growth of PC purchases from original equipment manufacturers (“OEMs”) that pre-install versions of Windows operating systems because the OEM channel accounts for over 80% of total Client revenue. The differences between unit growth rates and revenue growth rates from year to year are affected primarily by changes in the mix of OEM Windows premium edition operating systems licensed as a percentage of total OEM Windows operating systems licensed (“OEM premium mix”), changes in geographic mix, and changes in the channel mix of products sold by large, multi-national OEMs versus those sold by local and regional system builders.

     
     
    Three months ended June 30, 2009 compared with three months ended June 30, 2008

     
     
    Client revenue decreased primarily as a result of PC market weakness, especially PCs sold to businesses, and a 13 percentage point decline in the OEM premium mix to 59%. Revenue growth from Windows operating systems was also impacted by a $276 million deferral for the Windows 7 Upgrade Option program. OEM revenue decreased $1.1 billion or 31%, while OEM license units decreased 10%. Based on our estimates, total worldwide PC shipments from all sources declined approximately 5% to 7%, driven by decreased demand in emerging and developed markets.

     
     
    Client operating income decreased primarily reflecting decreased revenue, partially offset by decreased research and development and other operating expenses. Research and development expenses decreased $91 million or 31%, primarily reflecting the capitalization of certain Windows 7 software development costs.

     
     
    Twelve months ended June 30, 2009 compared with twelve months ended June 30, 2008

     
     
    Client revenue decreased primarily as a result of PC market weakness, especially PCs sold to businesses, and a 10 percentage point decline in the OEM premium mix to 64%. OEM revenue decreased $2.3 billion or 16% while OEM license units declined 2%. Based on our estimates, total worldwide PC shipments from all sources changed approximately (1%) to 2%, driven by changes in demand in emerging and developed markets.

     
     
    Client operating income decreased primarily reflecting decreased revenue and increased sales and marketing expenses. Sales and marketing expenses increased $122 million or 7%, primarily reflecting increased advertising and marketing.

Server and Tools offerings consist of server software licenses and client access licenses (“CAL”) for Windows Server, Microsoft SQL Server, and other server products. We also offer developer tools, training, certification, Microsoft Press, Premier product support services, and Microsoft Consulting Services. Server products can be run on-site, in a partner-hosted environment, or in a Microsoft-hosted environment. We use multiple channels for licensing, including pre-installed OEM versions, licenses through partners, and licenses directly to end customers. We sell licenses both as one-time licenses and as multi-year volume licenses.

     
     
    Three months ended June 30, 2009 compared with three months ended June 30, 2008

     
     
    Server and Tools revenue decreased primarily reflecting a decline in demand for server hardware as a result of the unfavorable economic environment. Server and server application revenue (including CAL) and developer tools revenue decreased $173 million or 6%, primarily due to decreased Windows Server and SQL Server revenue, partly offset by increased Enterprise CAL Suites and System Center revenue. Consulting and Premier product support services revenue decreased $38 million or 5%, reflecting a decline in consulting services provided. Foreign currency exchange rates accounted for an $82 million or two percentage point decrease in revenue.

     
     
    Server and Tools operating income decreased primarily due to decreased revenue, mostly offset by lower cost of revenue and sales and marketing expenses. Cost of revenue decreased $92 million or 13%, reflecting the decrease in demand for consulting services. Sales and marketing expenses decreased $77 million or 7%, primarily driven by a decrease in corporate marketing activities and headcount-related expenses associated with our corporate sales force.

     
     
    Twelve months ended June 30, 2009 compared with twelve months ended June 30, 2008

     
     
    Server and Tools revenue increased reflecting growth in both product and services revenue. Server and server application revenue (including CAL) and developer tools revenue increased $809 million or 8%, primarily driven by growth in SQL Server, Enterprise CAL Suites, and System Center revenue. This growth reflects recognition of deferred revenue from previously signed agreements and continued adoption of the Windows Server Platform and applications. Consulting and Premier product support services revenue increased $215 million or 8%, primarily due to revenue from annuity support agreements. Foreign currency exchange rates accounted for a $140 million or one percentage point increase in revenue.

     
     
    Server and Tools operating income increased primarily due to growth in product revenue, partially offset by increased research and development expenses and cost of revenue. Research and development expenses increased $168 million or 9%, primarily driven by increased headcount-related expenses. Cost of revenue increased $84 million or 3%, reflecting the growth in support, online, and consulting services.

    Microsoft Business Division (“MBD”) offerings consist of the Microsoft Office system and Microsoft Dynamics business solutions. Microsoft Office system products are designed to increase personal, team, and organization productivity through a range of programs, services, and software solutions. Growth of revenue from the Microsoft Office system offerings, which generate over 90% of MBD revenue, depends on our ability to add value to the core Office product set and to continue to expand our product offerings in other information worker areas such as content management, enterprise search, collaboration, unified communications, and business intelligence. Microsoft Dynamics products provide business solutions for financial management, customer relationship management, supply chain management, and analytics applications for small and mid-size businesses, large organizations, and divisions of global enterprises. We evaluate our results based upon the nature of the end user in two primary parts: business revenue, which includes Microsoft Office system revenue generated through volume licensing agreements and Microsoft Dynamics revenue; and consumer revenue, which includes revenue from retail packaged product sales and OEM revenue.

     
     
    Three months ended June 30, 2009 compared with three months ended June 30, 2008

     
     
    MBD revenue decreased reflecting decreased business and consumer revenue and included an unfavorable impact from foreign currency exchange rates of $75 million or one percentage point. Business revenue decreased $413 million or 10%, primarily reflecting a decline in volume licensing agreement revenue, and included a 13% decrease in Microsoft Dynamics customer billings. Consumer revenue decreased $289 million or 30%, primarily as a result of PC market weakness, a shift to lower-priced products, and pricing promotions on the 2007 Microsoft Office system.

     
     
    MBD operating income decreased reflecting decreased revenue, partially offset by decreased sales and marketing expenses. Sales and marketing expenses decreased $116 million or 10%, primarily driven by a decrease in corporate marketing activities and headcount-related costs associated with our corporate sales force.

     
     
    Twelve months ended June 30, 2009 compared with twelve months ended June 30, 2008

     
     
    MBD revenue was flat reflecting decreased consumer revenue offset by increased business revenue, and included a favorable impact from foreign currency exchange rates of $378 million or two percentage points. Consumer revenue decreased $525 million or 14%, primarily as a result of PC market weakness, a shift to lower-priced products, and pricing promotions on the 2007 Microsoft Office system. Business revenue increased $490 million or 3%, primarily reflecting growth in volume licensing agreement revenue and included a 7% decrease in Microsoft Dynamics customer billings. The growth in volume licensing agreement revenue primarily reflects recognition of deferred revenue from previously signed agreements.

     
     
    MBD operating income decreased reflecting increased cost of revenue and research and development expenses, partially offset by decreased sales and marketing expenses. Cost of revenue increased $135 million or 14%, primarily driven by expenses associated with Fast Search & Transfer ASA (“FAST”) which we acquired in April 2008, as well as online services infrastructure costs. Research and development expenses increased $119 million or 8%, primarily driven by an increase in headcount-related expenses associated with FAST. Sales and marketing expenses decreased $90 million or 2%, primarily driven by a decrease in corporate marketing activities and headcount-related costs associated with our corporate sales force.

    EDD revenue decreased across most lines of our business. Revenue from non-gaming business decreased $291 million or 42%, primarily reflecting decreased Mediaroom and Zune revenue. Xbox 360 platform and PC game revenue decreased $110 million or 12%, primarily as a result of decreased Xbox 360 console sales and decreased revenue per Xbox 360 console due to price reductions during the past 12 months, partially offset by increased Xbox Live revenue. We shipped 1.2 million Xbox 360 consoles during the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009, compared with 1.3 million Xbox 360 consoles during the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2008. Foreign currency exchange rates accounted for a $27 million or two percentage point decrease in revenue.

    ales and marketing expenses include payroll, employee benefits, stock-based compensation expense, and other headcount-related expenses associated with sales and marketing personnel and advertising, promotions, trade shows, seminars, and other programs. Sales and marketing expenses decreased during the three and twelve months ended June 30, 2009, primarily driven by the resource management program implemented in January 2009. During the three months ended June 30, 2009, we also reduced headcount-related costs by 10%.

     
     
    Effective July 1, 2008, we began presenting gains and losses resulting from foreign currency remeasurements as a component of other income (expense). Prior to July 1, 2008, we included gains and losses resulting from foreign currency remeasurements as a component of sales and marketing expense. We changed our presentation because this better reflects how we manage these foreign currency exposures, as such gains and losses arising from the remeasurement of foreign currency transactions are incidental to our operations. For the three and twelve months ended June 30, 2009, $46 million of gains and $509 million of losses, respectively, were reported as other income (expense). For the three and twelve months ended June 30, 2008, $5 million and $221 million of gains, respectively, were previously recorded as a component of sales and marketing expense and have been recast as other income (expense).

General and administrative expenses increased during the three months ended June 30, 2009, primarily reflecting $193 million of costs for legal settlements and legal contingencies, partially offset by decreased professional consulting fees. General and administrative expenses decreased during the twelve months ended June 30, 2009, primarily reflecting decreased costs for legal settlements and legal contingencies. We incurred legal charges of $283 million during the twelve months ended June 30, 2009, as compared with $1.8 billion during the twelve months ended June 30, 2008. The fiscal year 2008 legal costs were primarily related to the European Commission fine of $1.4 billion (€899 million).

     
     
    Employee Severance

     
     
    In January 2009, we announced and implemented a resource management program to reduce discretionary operating expenses, employee headcount, and capital expenditures. As part of this program, we are eliminating up to 5,000 positions in research and development, marketing, sales, finance, legal, human resources, and information technology by June 30, 2010. During the three and twelve months ended June 30, 2009, we recorded employee severance charges of $40 million and $330 million, respectively, for the expected reduction in headcount.

    Three months ended June 30, 2009 compared with three months ended June 30, 2008

     
     
    Dividends and interest income decreased primarily reflecting lower interest rates on our fixed-income investments. Net recognized losses on investments increased due to lower gains on sales of investments and higher other-than-temporary impairments. Other-than-temporary impairments were $108 million during the three months ended June 30, 2009, as compared with $64 million during the three months ended June 30, 2008 and increased primarily due to the declines in equity markets from the prior year. Net gains on derivatives increased primarily due to lower costs associated with hedging anticipated foreign currency revenues and gains on interest rate derivatives in the current period as compared with losses in the prior period.

    Dividends and interest income decreased primarily reflecting lower interest rates on our fixed-income investments. Net recognized losses on investments increased primarily due to higher other-than-temporary impairments that were partially offset by gains on sales of certain equity investments held in our strategic investments portfolio. Other-than-temporary impairments were $862 million during the twelve months ended June 30, 2009, as compared with $312 million during the twelve months ended June 30, 2008, and increased primarily due to declines in equity values as a result of deterioration in equity markets. Net losses on derivatives increased primarily due to losses on equity, commodity, and interest rate derivatives in the current period as compared with gains in the prior period. Net losses on foreign currency remeasurements increased due to the strengthening of the U.S. dollar, particularly in the first half of the current fiscal year.

     
     
    Income Taxes

     
     
    Our effective tax rate was 27% for the three and twelve months ended June 30, 2009. Our effective tax rate was 28% for the three months and 26% for the twelve months ended June 30, 2008. The fiscal year 2008 rate was lower primarily due to the resolution of tax positions relating to our agreement with the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) settling the 2000-2003 examination. As a result of this settlement and the related impact on subsequent years, we paid the IRS approximately $4.1 billion during fiscal year 2009.

     
     
    Financial Condition

     
     
    Cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments totaled $31.4 billion as of June 30, 2009, compared with $23.7 billion as of June 30, 2008. Equity and other investments were $4.9 billion as of June 30, 2009, compared with $6.6 billion as of June 30, 2008. Our investments consist primarily of fixed-income securities, diversified among industries and individual issuers. Our investments are generally liquid and investment grade. The portfolio is invested predominantly in U.S. dollar-denominated securities, but also includes foreign-denominated securities in order to diversify risk. We invest primarily in short-term securities to facilitate liquidity and for capital preservation. As a result of the special dividend paid in the second quarter of fiscal year 2005 and shares repurchased, our retained deficit, including accumulated other comprehensive income, was $22.8 billion at June 30, 2009. Our retained deficit is not expected to affect our future ability to operate, pay dividends, or repay our debt given our continuing profitability and strong cash and financial position.

    While we did not repurchase any shares during the three months ended June 30, 2009, $22 million of shares were withheld to satisfy minimum statutory tax withholding obligations on employee stock awards that vested during the quarter. These share withholdings are included with common stock repurchases in the financial statements.

     
     
    Debt

     
     
    Short-term Debt

     
     
    In September 2008, our Board of Directors authorized debt financings of up to $6.0 billion. Pursuant to the authorization, we established a commercial paper program providing for the issuance and sale of up to $2.0 billion in short-term commercial paper. As of June 30, 2009, $2.0 billion of the commercial paper was issued and outstanding with a weighted average interest rate, including issuance costs, of 0.20% and maturities of 22 to 119 days.

     
     
    In September 2008, we also entered into a $2.0 billion six-month senior unsecured credit facility, principally to support the commercial paper program. In November 2008, we replaced the six-month credit facility with a $2.0 billion 364-day credit facility. This credit facility expires on November 6, 2009. In March 2009, we entered into an additional credit facility. This $1.0 billion 364-day credit facility expires on March 12, 2010. As of June 30, 2009, we were in compliance with the only financial covenant in both credit agreements, which requires us to maintain a coverage ratio of at least three times earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization to interest expense. No amounts were drawn against these credit facilities during the year ended June 30, 2009.

     
     
    Long-term Debt

     
     
    In November 2008, we filed a shelf registration statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that allows us to issue debt securities from time to time pursuant to the September 2008 authorization for debt financings of up to $6.0 billion. In May 2009, we sold $3.75 billion of debt securities under that registration statement as follows: $2.0 billion aggregate principal amount of 2.95% notes due 2014, $1.0 billion aggregate principal amount of 4.20% notes due 2019, and $750 million aggregate principal amount of 5.20% notes due 2039 (collectively “the Notes”). Interest on the debt securities will be payable semi-annually on June 1 and December 1 of each year, commencing on December 1, 2009, to holders of record on the preceding May 15 and November 15. The debt securities are senior unsecured obligations and will rank equally with our other unsecured and unsubordinated debt outstanding.

     
     
    Unearned Revenue

     
     
    Unearned revenue is comprised of the following items:

     
     
    Volume licensing programs – Represents customer billings for multi-year licensing arrangements, paid either upfront or annually at the beginning of each billing coverage period, which are accounted for as subscriptions with revenue recognized ratably over the billing coverage period.

     
     
    Undelivered elements – Represents the right to receive unspecified upgrades/enhancements of Microsoft Internet Explorer on a when-and-if-available basis and free post-delivery telephone support. This revenue deferral is applicable for Windows XP and prior versions shipped as retail packaged products, products licensed to OEMs, and perpetual licenses for current products under our Open and Select volume licensing programs. The amount recorded as unearned is based on the sales price of those elements when sold separately and is recognized ratably on a straight-line basis over the related product’s life cycle. Product life cycles are currently estimated at three and one-half years for Windows operating systems. Undelivered elements include $276 million of deferred revenue related to the Windows 7 Upgrade Option program.

     
     
    Other – Represents payments for post-delivery support and consulting services to be performed in the future, online advertising for which the advertisement has yet to be displayed, Microsoft Dynamics business solutions products, Xbox Live subscriptions, Mediaroom, and other offerings for which we have been paid upfront and earn the revenue when we provide the service or software, or otherwise meet the revenue recognition criteria.

    Cash Flows

     
     
    Three months ended June 30, 2009 compared with three months ended June 30, 2008

     
     
    Cash flow from operations decreased $244 million, reflecting the 17% decrease in revenue and resulting decline in cash from customers. This impact was partially offset by other changes in working capital along with the $1.7 billion decrease in cash paid for other current liabilities reflecting the fiscal year 2008 payment of the European Commission fine. Cash from financing was $2.7 billion in the three months ended June 30, 2009 as compared with cash used of $5.1 billion in the prior fiscal year. This increase in cash was due to a $4.3 billion decrease in stock repurchases along with $3.8 billion of net cash proceeds from issuance of short-term and long-term debt. Cash used for investing increased $7.4 billion due to a $9.8 billion decrease in cash from combined investment purchases, sales, and maturities partially offset by a $2.0 billion decrease in cash paid for acquisition of companies.

     
     
    Twelve months ended June 30, 2009 compared with twelve months ended June 30, 2008

     
     
    Cash flow from operations decreased $2.6 billion due to payments of approximately $4.1 billion to the IRS in connection with our settlement of the 2000-2003 audit examination. This impact was partially offset by the fiscal year 2008 payment of the $1.4 billion (€899 million) European Commission fine. Cash used for financing decreased $5.5 billion, primarily due to $5.7 billion of net cash proceeds from issuance of short-term and long-term debt in fiscal year 2009. Financing activities also included a $3.2 billion decrease in common stock repurchased, which was offset by a $2.9 billion decline in common stock issued. Cash used for investing increased $11.2 billion due to a $15.9 billion rise in purchases of investments along with a $1.7 billion decrease in cash from investment sales and maturities. These impacts were partially offset by a $7.2 billion decrease in cash paid for acquisition of companies, reflecting the purchase of aQuantive in fiscal year 2008.
