Microsoft lowers expectations for quarterly revenue


Microsoft has lost optimism over the coronavirus. The company lowered its estimate of revenue for the current quarter, deciding that an outbreak would negatively affect sales of Windows software and Surface devices.

In January, the tech giant predicted from $ 10.75 billion to $ 11.15 billion in revenue from software sales in the first quarter. As the company explained, the spread of coronavirus resulted in the "supply chain returning to its normal state more slowly than expected." Apparently, it is impossible to achieve the planned indicators, the corporation believes.

This statement has already negatively affected the capitalization of the tech giant: its shares in electronic trading lost about 1.2%, having fallen in price to $ 168.12.

Microsoft is not the first company to revise its financial expectations. Earlier, such statements were made by Mastercard and American Airlines. In addition, other manufacturers of computers and mobile devices are also engaged in the revision of aspirations and hopes.
