Windows Live lost $560m in Microsoft’s FY’09

Microsoft provided details about the financial performance of groups whose results’re normally hidden in the numbers released for their parent divisions. Most notably, Windows Live lost $560 million in Microsoft’s 2009 fiscal year, on revenue of $520 million, according to one of the slides that accompanied the online presentation. In addition, the slide shows a loss of $50 million, on revenue of $360 million, for Microsoft’s Razorfish advertising agency in the 2009 fiscal year. Microsoft agreed to sell Razorfish to Publicis Groupe for $530 million last month in a deal scheduled to close in the fourth quarter of this year. The losses are notable but not huge in the scheme of the larger company. Microsoft overall posted revenue of $58.44 billion and operating profit of $20.36 billion in fiscal 2009, which ended June 30.
