US software giant Microsoft has posted profits and sales figures well above analysts’ expectations.
The firm made a $4.37bn profit during the first three months of its financial year, up from $4.29bn a year ago, while turnover rose 9% to $15.06bn.
Finance boss Chris Liddell said Microsoft had demonstrated the strength and diversity of its business model “in a challenging economic environment”.
However, the company also warned that during the next three months it was unlikely to meet the estimates of Wall Street analysts because of the economic slowdown.
