Microsoft CEO has stated his ambition of doubling the earnings to $500B by 2030

June 28, 2023: Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella told the administrators and board members in the previous year that the software business aims to get $500 billion in income by the 2030 financial year, folding its current height.

On Monday, the comments about annual earnings growth of nearly 10% appeared in a memo that evolved public as part of Microsoft’s federal court hearing over its uncertain Activision Blizzard acquisition.

Microsoft, one of the world’s most beneficial institutions, doesn’t tend to issue financial forecasts far into the future. In its latest earnings call, the company provided guidance only about the current period, which is the fiscal fourth quarter.

In the latest disclosure, part of a 15-page memo with an accompanying 21-page document, Nadella spoke Microsoft aims to achieve its 2030 goal “by executing an evolving strategy that is growth-oriented and consistent with our enduring mission and culture.”

Nadella laid out a forecast for shareholder returns from dividends and buybacks.

“We believe this ambition and approach will help us deliver more than 10% annual returns to our shareholders over that timeframe,” Nadella wrote in the paper dated June 7, 2022, weeks before the end of the fiscal year.

Nadella described a “20/20” goal involving 20% year-over-year revenue growth and 20% operating income expansion for the 2022 fiscal year and next years. For 2022, Microsoft reached 18% top-line growth to $198.27 billion in earnings and 19% operating income growth.

In the memo, Nadella employed the phrase Microsoft Plus to describe products aimed at consumers. But he expressed that the main growth driver is Microsoft Cloud. This term refers to a broad suite of products directed at commercial clients, including the Azure public cloud, parts of Microsoft 365 productivity software, and portions of LinkedIn.

“Our priority is to keep growth above the market rate to extend our lead over GCP and close the gap with AWS,” Nadella wrote in the accompanying document.

The Federal Trade Commission tries to stop Microsoft’s $68.7 billion purchase of game publisher Activision.
