Microsoft to Announce Third Quarter Results April 23, 2009

Microsoft has announced that it will release its third quarter earnings on Thursday April 23, 2009. (For many companies, it's time for first quarter earnings, but Microsoft's fiscal year begins in July instead of January.)

The earnings will be announced via conference call at 2:30pm PST on the 23rd. A live webcast of the call will be made available at the investor relations site which can be found here.

In January, Microsoft surprised Wall Street by releasing its 2nd quarter earnings several hours earlier than announced.
