REFILE-Alphabet trounces profit estimates on ad sales surge

(Corrects spelling of advertisements in first paragraph)

July 23 (Reuters) - Alphabet Inc beat Wall Street estimates for second quarter profit on Monday as it benefited from soaring sales of online advertisements, sending shares 6 percent higher in trading after the bell.

The company posted adjusted earnings of $10.58 per share, excluding the impact of equity investments and European antitrust regulators' record $5 billion fine for abusing its dominance in mobile software. Google is appealing the ruling.

When including the fine, second-quarter net income fell to $3.20 billion, or $4.54 per Class A and B common share and Class C capital share, from $3.52 billion, or $5.01 per share, a year earlier.

Revenue jumped to $32.66 billion from $26.01 billion. Analysts on average had expected revenue of $32.17 billion and earnings of $9.52 per share, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. (Reporting by Arjun Panchadar in Bengaluru and Paresh Dave in San Francisco; editing by Patrick Graham)
