How Satya Nadella led Microsft on $1-trillion journey, join Amazon, Apple in an exclusive club
India-born Satya Nadella-led Microsoft has achieved a major feat. It has become the third US company to pass a market cap of $1 trillion. Apple and Amazon are the two other US companies which are ahead of Microsoft in terms of market capitalisation. Since Nadella took over as CEO in 2014, the company has seen healthy growth. Microsoft's earnings handily beat analysts' expectations with revenue of $30.6 billion, up 14 per cent from the year-ago quarter, and earnings per share of $1.14.
