Microsoft Corp. said it would report its financial performance starting in the 2007 business year based on five businesses, down from seven operating divisions.

The software maker, which has $40 billion in annual revenue, said the change reflected a broad reorganization into three divisions, with the goal of making the company more nimble to compete with a diverse set of rivals, including Google Inc. and Oracle Corp.

The company will report earnings for Client, Server and Tools, Online Services Group, Microsoft Business Division and Microsoft Entertainment and Devices division.
