For the full year, ending June, earnings are projected to rise 14.4% year over year to $4.44 per share, while full-year revenue of $124.07 billion would mark a year-over-year increase of 12.3%.

Lowe anticipated Commercial Cloud revenue growth of 39% on the back of 66% growth in Azure and 26% revenue growth in Office 365 Commercial.
