google-consolidated-quarterly-revenues-q2-2012

Google revenues topped $10 billion for the third quarter in a row, up 15 percent from the $10.65 billion reported in Q1 2012. The Q2 2012 $12.21 billion in revenue is another new record and reflects a 35 percent increase over the same quarter last year, when Motorola is factored in.

In their pre-earnings call press release, Google quoted CEO and co-founder Larry Page on the company’s latest developments and the closed Motorola acquisition: “Google standalone had a strong quarter with 21% year-on-year revenue growth, and we launched a bunch of exciting new products at I/O – in particular the Nexus 7 tablet, which has received rave reviews.” Page continued, “This quarter is also special because Motorola is now part of the Google family, and we’re excited about the potential to build great devices for users.”

Here’s a quick break down of the Q2 numbers:

Google-owned sites generated revenues of $7.54 billion, or 69% of Google revenues, in the second quarter of 2012. This represents a 21% increase over second quarter 2011 Google sites revenues of $6.23 billion.

Google Network Revenues

Google’s partner sites generated revenues of $2.98 billion, or 27% of Google revenues, in the second quarter of 2012. This represents a 20% increase from second quarter 2011 Google network revenues of $2.48 billion.
