Overview - 2013 Q2 Results. Uninspiring 2013 Q2 results following Windows 8 release Q2 revenues rose 3%, EBIT margins fell 2% and GAAP EPS fell 3%. This was the first results following the Windows 8 release. Windows revenues rose 24% on a 56% margin; well below the 67% sales jump on a 74% margin, when Windows 7 was released in Q3 2007. Critically, this implies that Windows 8 will not be a big driver for future earnings as was hoped. Surface sales were not disclosed but are believed to be very unimpressive. Revenues & margins have been in a downward trend since 2010 as fundamentals erode. Overall these were uninspiring results and there were few positive developments. - Q2 Total Revenue rose $0.6 bn (+3%), to $21.5 bn. ................
