Google will not disclose its salary data in its annual compensation report for the second consecutive year.
The search engine’s chief executive, Sundar Pichai, did not disclose the number of employees and the types of jobs in its salary database in a memo to shareholders on Friday.
The move is the latest indication that the company’s financial performance is faltering.
Google has seen revenue drop by 20 percent and earnings decline by more than 20 percent since Pichi took over the reins in April.
Pichin said in a note to investors that the changes were part of an effort to make the company more transparent about its finances.
Google’s revenue has fallen by 10 percent to $12.5 billion.
Google is also struggling to compete in the emerging field of artificial intelligence.
The company’s AI program, DeepMind, has struggled to keep up with the pace of progress in artificial intelligence and the number and complexity of tasks that AI systems can do.
Pichiay said in the memo that he expected the company to deliver a more “balanced” report next year.
“We’ll take a more detailed look at our performance in 2017, and we will continue to make progress towards making AI more effective, relevant and reliable,” he wrote.
Google, which has been a strong defender of its AI research and research infrastructure, has a $200 billion debt.
Google stock has fallen 17 percent this year, according to Bloomberg data.
