It has been reported that Alphabet – Google’s parent company – has recorded a quarterly rise in profits thanks to strong advertising sales on mobile devices.
Revenue received between April-June 2016 reached £16.3bn ($21.5bn), marking an increase of 21.3% when compared to the same quarter during 2015. In addition, net income for the quarter jumped from $3.9bn in 2015 to $49.9bn, whilst Alphabet’s share price received an increase of 6%.
Impressively, this follows on from a 17% increase during the first quarter of 2016.
