Jan. 29, as part of our second quarter of fiscal year 2020 earnings
call, we issued quarterly revenue guidance for our More Personal
Computing segment between $10.75 and $11.15 billion, which included a
wider than usual range to reflect uncertainty related to the public
health situation in China. Although we see strong Windows demand in line
with our expectations, the supply chain is returning to normal
operations at a slower pace than anticipated at the time of our Q2
earnings call. As a result, for the third quarter of fiscal year 2020,
we do not expect to meet our More Personal Computing segment guidance as
Windows OEM and Surface are more negatively impacted than previously
anticipated. All other components of our Q3 guidance remain unchanged.
