Google's owner, Alphabet, has released quarterly figures for the first quarter of the year after the market's closing on Wall Street on Monday.
The result was $ 6.66 billion, or $ 9.50 per share.
A fine of $ 1.7 billion for the company's online advertising practices overwhelmed the result. Excluding the fine, the result was $ 11.90 per share.
Revenue was $ 36.34 billion.
In advance, according to Refinitiv, a profit of $ 10.61 per share (adjusted for the fine) was expected, and revenues were expected to reach $ 37.33 billion.
That means the technology giant has lost its expectations of revenue.
This despite the fact that revenues rose compared to the same period last year when revenues reached $ 31.15 billion. At that time, the result was US $ 9.93 per share.
Shares declined nearly four percent shortly after the number fell – then the decline plunged, and shares fell 5.5 percent.
