Alphabet Still Makes $2.8 Billion AFTER The European Union Fines

How good was the last quarter for Google’s parent company Alphabet?  They still made $2.8 billion after you factor in the recent $5 billion fine from the European Union.  If that doesn’t impress you, then perhaps 26% growth year-over-year will do the trick.

It was a monster quarter for the Mountain View company.

Overall, the company had $32.7 billion in revenue (top line number) with a bottom line revenue number of $2.8 billion.  If you take out the European Union fine, Alphabet would have made just shy of $8 billion for the quarter which would have been around a billion more than the same quarter last year.

Breaking things down a bit further, Google was responsible for $28 billion in revenue and still is the bulk of the company’s business.  Other segments such as the hardware business and the Play Store brought in $4.4 billion while the long shot projects brought in about $145 million.

Ad revenue is still a staple item at the Google table and that doesn’t look to be changing any time soon. Paid Clicks were up 15% YoY.
