It’s been three months since Google announced their last financial reports, so let’s gather round and see what’s been happening in the world of Google.
Patrick Pichette, Chief Financial Officer for Google again led the call, which announced the results and they include a summary of the full year. So what were the details :
Google’s “other revenues” segment grew by 19 percent year-over-year (6 percent quarter-over-quarter) to $1.95 billion, driven primarily by growth in Play Store sales.
$66 billion in revenue for 2014 which is a 19% year-over-year increase.
$18.10 billion consolidated revenue for Q4, up 15% on Q4 2013.
$4.76 billion net income, up from $3.38 billion on Q4 2013.
$64.40 billion cash on hand as of as of December 31, 2014, up from $62.16 billion reported last quarter.
53,600 full-time employees as of December 31, 2014.
There is of course no information about Motorola, with Google finalising the sale of Motorola to Lenovo on October 29th last year.
In terms of stock price, it seems that these numbers were acceptable with Google stock closing at US$510.66, with a gain of 1.34% in after hours trading and is currently sitting at US$517.51 per share.
