Google's earning details of first quarter of 2013 leaked due to some slip up on the SEC website today revealing that the Q3 "consolidated earnings" were $14.1 billion (which represents a 45 percent increase vs. last year).

Google also reported that Motorola brought in $2.58 billion ("$1.78 billion from the mobile segment and $797 million from the home segment"). This was 18 percent of consolidated Q3 revenue. However there was a Motorola operating loss of $527 million.

"We had a strong quarter. Revenue was up 45 percent year-on-year, and, at just fourteen years old, we cleared our first $14 billion revenue quarter," said Larry Page, CEO Google. "I am also really excited about the progress we're making creating a beautifully simple, intuitive Google experience across all devices."

A Google spokesperson points to financial printer PR Donnelly as the source of the leak stating,

"Earlier this morning RR Donnelley, the financial printer, informed us that they had filed our draft 8K earnings statement without authorization. We have ceased trading on NASDAQ while we work to finalize the document. Once it's finalized we will release our earnings, resume trading on NASDAQ and hold our earnings call as normal at 1:30 PM PT."

Since, the leak a 9 percent drop in Google stock value has been recorded and have ceased trading at 12:50 p.m. EST until the earnings call.

  • Google Sites Revenues: Google properties saw $7.73 billion, which was 67 percent of total quarterly revenues. It also represents 15 percent growth over last year.

  • Cost-Per-Click - "decreased approximately 15 percent" compared with Q3 2011 and down 3 percent vs. Q2. This may be a result of mobile CPCs being quite a bit lower (marketers are valuing mobile clicks less than PC clicks)

  • Traffic acquisition costs, paid to network partners, increased to $2.77 billion in Q3 (vs. $2.21 billion in Q3 2011).
