LinkedIn 3Q Revenue Rockets 45 Percent

LinkedIn reported strong third-quarter revenue growth as more and more companies use its services to hire employees.

Despite a 45 percent rise in revenue to $568 million compared to $393 million in the third quarter of 2013, the professional social network still posted a loss, although it was smaller than what was forecast by analysts.

The net loss attributable to common stockholders was $4.3 million, compared to net loss of $3.4 million in the year-ago quarter.

“LinkedIn made significant progress against several long-term strategic investments we began this year,” LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner said in a press release. “During the third quarter, we took meaningful steps in increasing the scale and relevance of job listings, growing the professional publishing platform, and expanding our member network in new geographies and demographics.”

Weiner, during a conference call with investors and analysts, said China is its second-largest source of new members behind the U.S. LinkedIn just entered the Chinese market earlier this year.

“We’re showing good traction there,” he said.

Third-quarter highlights included:

  • Expansion of “Limited Listings” offerings to a broad base of U.S. and global companies. Jobs seekers now have access to nearly two million job listings on LinkedIn, driving strong momentum for the Job Search mobile app.
  • Launch of Sales Navigator to empower sales professionals to establish and grow relationships with prospects and customers. This new stand-alone product experience allows sales professionals to stay updated about key accounts, focus on the right people, and build trusted relationships.
  • The acquisition of Bizo, accelerating the ability to develop an end-to-end B2B marketing platform. Building on the success of Sponsored Updates, Bizo’s team and technology will expand LinkedIn’s ability to leverage current content marketing products and offer a wider range of solutions to meet our customers’ marketing objectives.

“LinkedIn demonstrated strength in the third quarter, leveraging the scale created by our member network to deliver growth across all three product lines,” said chief financial officer Steve Sordello. “We continue to make aggressive investments in our member and customer platforms in order to realize our long-term potential.”

LinkedIn is forecasting revenue of between $600 million and $605 million for its fourth quarter and an annual revenue of between $2.175 billion and $2.180 billion.

Sony Posts $1.2B Loss for 2Q as Mobile Continues Slide

Sony has reported a $1.2 billion net loss for its second quarter as the Japanese firm’s mobile division continues to struggle.

The loss was not as great as Wall Street had been predicting, primarily due to demand for PlayStation 4 consoles. It was those sales that helped to offset the company’s writedown of its Xperia Smartphones. Thomson Reuters predicted Sony would have an operating losses of $1.47 billion.

The company posted operating losses of $785 million in the quarter, that is in spite of a 7.2 percent year-on-year revenue increase totalling $17.45 billion.

Sony has lost money in six out of the last seven years and, lately, it has been because of it beleaguered mobile division which, in this quarter, suffered a loss of $1.58 billion.

Sony’s gaming unit is a boon for the company, however, helping offset mobile losses. Gaming revenue jumped 83 percent year-on-year thanks to the PlayStation 4. Sony’s device business, meanwhile, which includes Smartphone camera lenses and image sensors posted $271 in revenue, an increase of 187 percent compared to the year-ago quarter.

Politician Wants Gay Apple CEO Banned from Entering Russia

A Russian politician wants Apple’s CEO to be banned from entering his country after Tim Cook’s recent announcement that he is “proud to be gay.”

Vitaly Milonov, a regional lawmaker for the ruling United Russia party, called Cook’s “coming out” an “act aimed at popularizing homosexuality.”

“I believe he should be banned from entering our country,” Milonov told AFP. “It’s obvious he has the intention of imposing his ideas about families, not just of introducing new gadgets.”

He also said Cook could bring disease with him if he were to come to Russia.

“What could he bring us? The Ebola virus, AIDS, gonorrhea? They all have unseemly ties over there.”

When asked by Izvestia daily if he would boycott Apple products and stop using his iPhone, he said: “It’s not the phone’s fault.”

Milonov’s stance should come as no surprise. He is behind a controversial law, approved by President Vladimir Putin last year, that criminalizes homosexual propaganda directed toward minors.

Cook is the first CEO of a major U.S. company to announce he is gay.

The Apple CEO penned a missive for Bloomberg Businessweek earlier this week in which, for the first time, he publicly acknowledged his sexual orientation.

Although Cook said he has never denied being gay in his day-to-day life, he has always aimed to keep is personal life private from society-at-large.

Cook said he is “proud to be gay,” adding that it has given him “a deeper understanding of what it means to be in the minority and provided a window into the challenges that people in other minority groups deal with every day.”
