"Organizations using digital technology to transform and drive new growth increasingly choose Microsoft as a partner," said Satya Nadella, chief executive officer at Microsoft. "As these organizations turn to us, we're seeing momentum across Microsoft's cloud services and with Windows 10."
During the quarter, Microsoft returned $6.4 billion to shareholders in the form of share repurchases and dividends.
This quarter's income tax expense included a catch-up adjustment to account for an expected increase in the full year effective tax rate primarily due to the changing mix of revenue across geographies, as well as between cloud services and software licensing. As such, the GAAP and non-GAAP tax rates were 25% and 24%, respectively.
