Facebook reports $0.12 earnings per share on $1.458B in revenue for Q1 2013

facebook logoFacebook today reported $1.458 billion in revenue for the first quarter of 2013 ended Marc 31 — an increase of 38 percent, compared with $1.06 billion in the first quarter of 2012. Earnings per share were $0.12, basically flat compared to Q1 2012.

Analysts were expecting 13 cents per share on revenue of $1.44 billion, meaning Facebook beat revenue estimates but just missed on profits.

Revenue from advertising was $1.25 billion, or 85 percent of total revenue. That’s a 43 percent increase from the same quarter last year and likely due in part to mobile growth. Mobile advertising revenue represented about 30 percent of all advertising revenue in Q1.

Revenue from payments fees was $213 million in Q3 2013, compared to $186 million in the same period the year before.
