Here's how the company did in the fiscal third quarter compared with what the Street expected:
- EPS: 73 cents vs. 70 cents expected, according to Thomson Reuters consensus
- Revenue: $23.56 billion vs. $23.62 billion expected, according to Thomson Reuters consensus
- "Intelligent cloud" revenue: $6.76 billion vs. $6.60 billion expected, according to StreetAccount consensus
- "More personal computing" revenue: $8.84 billion vs. $9.22 billion expected, according to StreetAccount consensus
The figure in the company's "more personal computing" segment represents a 7 percent decline from what it reported in the year-ago period. Microsoft said the decrease was primarily driven by lower phone revenue.
Within the "more personal computing" segment, the company said it saw a 26 percent decrease in Surface, a line of tablets and computers.
The stock fell as much as 3 percent in after-hours trading, but has since recovered its losses. It was last seen trading just slightly lower.
