Alphabet posted revenue of $18.7 billion for the third quarter, beating analysts' estimates of $18.53 billion, and showing growth of 13 percent year-to-year. The company also posted an earnings per share of $7.35, beating analysts' estimates of $7.21 in earnings per share.

“Our Q3 results show the strength of Google's business, particularly in mobile search. With six products now having more than 1 billion users globally, we're excited about the opportunities ahead of Google, and across Alphabet,” Ruth Porat, chief financial officer of Alphabet and Google, said in a statement.

Had foreign exchange rates remained constant from the third quarter of 2014 through the third quarter of 2015, our revenues in the third quarter of 2015 would have been $1,291 million higher with a constant currency growth rate of 21% year over year.

This includes a foreign exchange rate impact of $1,577 million, offset by hedging gains of $286 million related to our foreign exchange risk management program.
