Microsoft Business Division Performance

Office 365 momentum; Business revenue drives growth

  • Business revenue up 6%
  • Office 365 momentum
  • Annual run rate of $1.5 billion
  • More than 1M Office 365 Home Premium subscribers
  • 1 in 3 Office 365 seats running premium workloads
  • Exchange, SharePoint and Lync each grew double-digit
  • Enterprise communication business is now over $1 billion

MBD revenue increased reflecting growth in business revenue, partially offset by a decline in consumer revenue. Business revenue increased $1.2 billion or 6%, which reflects 11% growth in Office revenue from subscriptions and volume licensing agreements with software assurance, and a 12% increase in Microsoft Dynamics revenue, offset in part by a 9% decrease in Office license-only revenue. Consumer revenue decreased $582 million or 13%, primarily driven by the impact on revenue of a decline in the x86 PC market.

MBD revenue for the year ended June 30, 2013 included an unfavorable foreign currency impact of $475 million.

MBD operating income increased, primarily due to revenue growth, offset in part by higher sales and marketing expenses and cost of revenue. Sales and marketing expenses grew $185 million or 5%, primarily due to higher advertising expenses, fees paid to third-party software advisors, and increased cross-platform marketing activities. Cost of revenue grew $108 million or 6%, primarily due to an increase in online operation and support costs.
