This is contributed by Xbox One (3.9 million units), Xbox 360 (3.5 million units) and Surface series (Unpublished Unit) which showed solid sales. However, sales of the Surface series as a whole are about 830 million dollars (about 85.7 billion yen), which is doubling every quarter but the cost is also increasing, the cost of this term is 930 million dollars (About 96 billion yen), and it is also clear that the total is falling in the red.
Sales in the D & C licensing division have declined slightly to 5.4 billion dollars (about 558 billion yen, 6% decrease), which is thought to be caused by the downturn in the PC market. This includes patent fee income for Windows Phone and smartphones, which shows a 50% increase in sales every year and is on the order of 1 billion dollars (about 103 billion yen) on a quarterly basis , The breakdown of Windows Phone and patent fee has not been clarified, and the actual result of Windows Phone alone is unknown.

In addition, the cloud business, which mainly focused on Office 365, also performed well.
About the future In the company, although licensing business and business hardware will continue to be strong, we expect that hard-wearing consumer hardware will continue.
