Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure

On March 28, 2020, Microsoft Corporation posted an entry on the Microsoft Azure Blog, a site directed primarily at customers, partners, and other parties interested in developments in Azure technologies and services. The post contained, among other information, a statement that “We have seen a 775 percent increase of our cloud services in regions that have enforced social distancing or shelter in place orders.” The metric in this statement was intended to refer only to a specific cloud-based service, Teams calling and meeting monthly users, in a specific country, Italy. The statement was not intended to provide information about the performance of Azure and cloud services generally, Microsoft’s Intelligent Cloud segment, or Microsoft as a whole. We corrected the blog entry to clarify the nature of this information on March 30, 2020. A copy of the corrected blog is filed as Exhibit 99.1 and may be viewed at https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/update-2-on-microsoft-cloud-services-continuity/.
