The LinkedIn revenue juggernaut rolled on over the summer, growing by 45%, with recruitment accounting for the largest share of the $568 million the company brought in from July through the end of September.
Reporting its 3rd quarter financial results after the U.S. markets closed this afternoon, LinkedIn said it earned 52 cents a share after excluding stock-based compensation. The consensus of Wall Street analysts was the adjusted earnings would be 39 cents a share. LinkedIn also beat their $557.49 million revenue forecast.
Taking into account the cost of the shares it gives employees as part of their compensation, LinkedIn lost $4.3 million, almost a million more than it reported in the 3rd quarter 2013.
