Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in an interview Wednesday that it is natural for the sector to be unprofitable, as most of Realty Labs’ activities are still focused on researching and developing a range of software and hardware products, such as Project Cambria.
Zuckerberg adds in this regard:
I know it is expensive to do this project, to build something that has not been built before, but it provides a new paradigm for our social computers and communication.
We expect to generate more revenue than others in this area and we also strive to make the development of our platforms a sustainable asset.
Meta’s financial statements released earlier this year show that Relite Labs lost about $ 10 billion to Meta last year. About $ 4 billion of these losses were spent on personnel and research and development.
Overall, the company’s total revenue for the first three months of 2022 is estimated at $ 27.9 billion, an increase of 6.9% over the company’s revenue last year, which is about $ 26.1 billion. This shows. The publication of the report for the first three months of this year was well received by the market, so that the price of meta shares in trading after working hours increased by about 18%.
The number of employees of Meta Company as of March 31 (April 11) is 77,805 people, which is an increase of 28% compared to last year, which shows that the company continues to grow.
