Microsoft to cut up to 5000 jobs as earnings fall

Thursday, January 22, 2009

Microsoft Corp shocked Wall Street on Thursday with disappointing results and said it would slash up to 5,000 jobs and stop offering profit forecasts for the rest of the fiscal year.

The world's top software maker blamed the weakness of the PC market and the popularity of low-cost netbook computers for the miss. Its shares fell 8 percent in early trading.

Microsoft posted a profit of $4.17 billion, or 47 cents per share, in its fiscal second quarter ended December 31, versus a profit of $4.71 billion, or 50 cents, a year earlier. Analysts were looking for earnings per share of 49 cents, according to Reuters Estimates.

Revenue rose 2 percent to $16.63 billion, missing the average analyst forecast of $17.1 billion.

"Clearly business conditions are worse than people were expecting," said Richard Williams, analyst at Cross Research. "This is a substantial amount of jobs cuts. Microsoft has never had a layoff like this in my knowledge and it's sending a signal that the times are definitely changing."

Microsoft said it will eliminate up to 5,000 jobs in research and development, marketing, sales, finance, legal, human resources and information technology over the next 18 months, including 1,400 jobs on Thursday. That amounts to about 5 percent of its estimated 95,000 work force.
