Can Google Beat $5.52 Billion In Third Quarter 2009?

google-revenueGoogle announced today that it will hold its quarterly conference call to present third quarter 2009 financial results on Thursday, October 15, 2009 at 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time (4:30 p.m. Eastern Time).

In the second quarter ending June 30, 2009, Google posted revenues of $5.52 billion, an increase of 3% compared to the second quarter of 2008.

Despite a down economy across the globe, Google is posting 3% revenue growth from ad revenue – nothing short of an amazing feat!

Here is what Google CEO Eric Schmidt had to say about the second quarter results:

“Google had a very good quarter, especially given the continued macro-economic downturn. While most of the world’s largest economies shrank, Google’s year-over-year revenues were up 3%. These results highlight the enduring strength of our business model and our responsible efforts to manage expenses in a way that puts us in a good position for the economic upturn, when it occurs.   We remain focused on investing in technical innovation to drive growth in our core and new businesses.”
