For the first time since its stock exchange listing, Facebook has released its financial results on Thursday evening of July 26. The first social networking world has announced a net loss of $ 157 million for the second quarter, triggering a new wave of sales of the title.
Based on the number of shares and excluding exceptional items, the Californian company, however, shows a profit of 12 cents, exactly the expectations of the analysts.
The net loss, whereas a year ago Facebook was receiving up to $ 159 million, is explained by the accounting treatment of stock options granted to employees and taxes related to these payments, which totaled $ 1.3 billion dollars.
Turnover was up 32% to just above expectations at $ 1.18 billion against 1.15 billion expected. Facebook said its advertising revenue had increased by 28% over one year to 992 million, and they now represent 84% of its revenue.
The founding CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a statement that the company was “focused on investments in its priorities: the mobile Internet platform and social advertising.” Capital expenditure for the quarter have more than tripled to $ 413 million.
Facebook announced, on the other hand, the number of active users per month had increased 29% to 955 million at June 30, and 543 million users used the site from mobile devices, a figure 67% increase over one year....
