Financial data from Alphabet earnings reports

Financial report summary

  • We face intense competition. If we do not continue to innovate and provide products and services that are useful to users, we may not remain competitive, and our revenues and operating results could be adversely affected.
  • We generate a significant portion of our revenues from advertising, and reduced spending by advertisers or a loss of partners could harm our advertising business.
  • We are subject to increasing regulatory scrutiny as well as changes in public policies governing a wide range of topics that may negatively affect our business.
  • Our ongoing investment in new businesses and new products, services, and technologies is inherently risky, and could disrupt our current operations.
  • The Internet is accessed through a variety of platforms and form factors that continue to evolve with the advancement of technology and user preferences. If manufacturers and users do not widely adopt versions of our search technology, products, or operating systems developed for these devices and modalities, our business could be adversely affected.
  • Our revenue growth rate could decline over time, and we anticipate downward pressure on our operating margin in the future.
  • Our operating results may fluctuate, which makes our results difficult to predict and could cause our results to fall short of expectations.
  • A variety of new and existing laws and/or interpretations could harm our business.
  • We are regularly subject to claims, suits, government investigations, and other proceedings that may adversely affect our business and results of operations.
  • We may be subject to legal liability associated with providing online services or content.
  • Data privacy and security concerns relating to our technology and our practices could damage our reputation and deter current and potential users or customers from using our products and services. Bugs or defects in our products and services have occurred and may occur in the future, or our security measures could be breached, resulting in the improper use and/or disclosure of user data, and our services and systems are subject to attacks that could degrade or deny the ability of users and customers to access, or rely on information received about, our products and services. As a consequence, our products and services may be perceived as being insecure, users and customers may curtail or stop using our products and services, and we may incur significant legal, reputational, and financial exposure.
  • Our business is subject to complex and rapidly evolving U.S. and international laws and regulations regarding privacy and data protection. Many of these laws and regulations are subject to change and uncertain interpretation and could result in claims, changes to our business practices, penalties, increased cost of operations, or declines in user growth or engagement, or otherwise harm our business.
  • We are, and may in the future be, subject to intellectual property or other claims, which are costly to defend, could result in significant damage awards, and could limit our ability to use certain technologies in the future.
  • Our intellectual property rights are valuable, and any inability to protect them could reduce the value of our products, services and brand as well as affect our ability to compete.
  • Acquisitions, joint ventures, investments, and divestitures could result in operating difficulties, dilution, and other consequences that may adversely affect our business and results of operations.
  • Our business depends on strong brands, and failing to maintain and enhance our brands would hurt our ability to expand our base of users, advertisers, customers, content providers, and other partners.
  • We face a number of manufacturing and supply chain risks that, if not properly managed, could adversely affect our financial results and prospects.
  • Web spam, including content farms, and other violations of our guidelines could affect the quality of our services, which could damage our reputation and deter our current and potential users from using our products and services.
  • Interruption, interference with or failure of our information technology and communications systems could hurt our ability to effectively provide our products and services, which could damage our reputation and harm our operating results.
  • Our international operations expose us to additional risks that could harm our business, operating results, and financial condition.
  • If we were to lose the services of key personnel, we may not be able to execute our business strategy.
  • We rely on highly skilled personnel and, if we are unable to retain or motivate key personnel, hire qualified personnel, or maintain our corporate culture, we may not be able to grow effectively.
  • Our business depends on continued and unimpeded access to the Internet by us and our users. Internet access providers may be able to restrict, block, degrade, or charge for access to certain of our products and services, which could lead to additional expenses and the loss of users and advertisers.
  • New and existing technologies could affect our ability to customize ads and/or could block ads online, which would harm our business.
  • We are exposed to fluctuations in the market values of our investments.
  • We could be subject to changes in tax rates, the adoption of new U.S. or international tax legislation, or exposure to additional tax liabilities.
  • The trading price for our Class A common stock and non-voting Class C capital stock may continue to be volatile.
  • We cannot guarantee that any share repurchase program will be fully consummated or that any share repurchase program will enhance long-term stockholder value, and share repurchases could increase the volatility of the price of our stock and could diminish our cash reserves.
  • The concentration of our stock ownership limits our stockholders’ ability to influence corporate matters.
  • Provisions in our charter documents and under Delaware law could discourage a takeover that stockholders may consider favorable.
  • As a holding company, Alphabet is dependent on the operations and funds of its subsidiaries.
