Procura de anúncios do Google aumenta lucros da Alphabet

By Duncan Mil

April 28, 2021 - A empresa mãe da Google, a Alphabet, apresentou o seu trimestre mais
rentável de sempre entre janeiro e março de 2921, impelido por forte procura de publicidade online, jogos caseiros e vídeos no YouTube.

The blowout quarter saw gross revenue surging to $55.3 billion, up 34 per cent from $41.2 billion in the same period last year. Net profit rocketed 162 per cent to $17.9bn ($26.29 per share) from Q1 2020.

Google’s ad business -- the world market leader -- generated $44.68 billion, accounting for 81 per cent of Alphabet’s first-quarter revenue.

YouTube ad revenue rose 49 per cent to $6 billion as people were looking to relieve pandemic boredom by watching videos online.

The company’s Google Cloud unit -- a distant third-place cloud services provider behind Amazon and Microsoft -- added $4 billion of revenue, up 45.7 per cent. Although the division continues to be lossmaking, the losses narrowed to $974m from $1.73bn a year ago.

Alphabet’s Other Bets, which includes its driverless car business Waymo, life sciences researcher Verily and its “moonshot factory” X, generated $198 million. However, the division lost $1.15 billion.

By region, Alphabet’s revenues soared 32 per cent in Asia-Pacific, 23 per cent in the U.S., 22 per cent in Europe, the Middle East and Africa and 14% in other Americas.
