Revenues increase notably, Motorola still posting a loss this quarter

Google has just released its Q1 2013 earnings report, and while we listen in on the earnings call we're going to break down some of the raw numbers for you:

  • $13.97 billion in revenue for the quarter, up 31-percent year-over-year
  • $3.48 billion in operating income, up slightly y-o-y but down as a percentage of revenue
  • Google-owned sites represented $8.64 billion of those revenues
  • Google Network (partner sites) represented $3.26 billion of revenue
  • Motorola posted $1.02 billion in revenues, 7-percent of Google's total
  • Motorola ended with an operating loss of $271 million for Q1

A strong quarter for Google is seeing revenues increase largely over the same quarter last year, but while revenues did increase in nominal terms they did decrease in terms of share of revenues. Income from each different area of Google were strong, and though the number of paid clicks (for advertisements) increased about 20-percent the cost-per-click fell slightly by 4-percent. Speaking to Motorola specifically, the unit had $1.02 billion in revenue for the quarter, but is still posting a loss of $271 million in the end.
