Microsoft reports third quarter earnings today, ahead of Nokia deal closure

Microsoft reports its fiscal third quarter earnings today, a day ahead of the expected closure of Microsoft’s deal to acquire Nokia’s handset business.

CEO Satya Nadella is scheduled to be on the earnings conference call today, which will be webcast starting at 2:30 p.m. During the call, Nadella may also address the Nokia deal.

Analysts expect Microsoft to report quarterly revenue of about $20.4 billion, and earnings per share of 63 cents on profit of $5.3 billion, according to Bloomberg. That’s down, respectively, 0.3 percent, 12.6 percent, and 13.2 percent from the year-ago quarter.

Here’s my story, running in today’s print edition of The Seattle Times, on what the closure of the deal may mean for Microsoft and what analysts are expecting from the 3Q results.
