If Microsoft’s Yearly Revenue Is “Wow!”, Apple’s Is “Holy Sh*t!”

2011/07/23

Earlier today, Microsoft reported their Q4 numbers. They were good — a record for the quarter, even. And because it was the end of their fiscal year, Microsoft also stated their yearly numbers. Those were even better. The big number: $69.94 billion in revenue for the year. A new record for the company. Yes, for all the talk of Microsoft being in decline, they made more money than ever before.

So let’s take a look at Apple’s previous four quarters of revenue.

Q4 ’10: $20.34 billion

Q1 ’11: $26.74 billion

Q2 ’11: $24.67 billion

Q3 ’11: $28.57 billion

Altogether — ready for it? $100.32 billion. Yes, Apple is now a $100 billion-a-year company. Yes, they’re over $30 billion ahead of Microsoft — a company which had been beating the pants off of them for decades. Apple now makes more money in three quarters than Microsoft does in an entire year.

Okay, but that’s revenue. What about profit? Microsoft touted $23.15 billion in net income for the year. Apple only passed Microsoft in profit last quarter, the final financial piece to fall. Still, amazingly, Apple holds the yearly edge there too. $23.61 billion.
