Apple Announces Details For Second Quarter Earnings ReportBy: Shaylin Clark - April 20, 2012
Apple has issued a press release with the details for the company’s earnings report for the second quarter of fiscal year 2012 (which ended at the end of March). The report will be delivered on Tuesday, April 24th at 2 PM Pacific time (5 PM Eastern) via conference call. There will also be a live webcast, and the audio of the conference call will be rebroadcast for two weeks beginning at 5:30 on the 24th.
It will be interesting to see how Apple will follow up last quarter’s earning report. In January Apple announced their best quarter ever. In the first quarter of the 2012 fiscal year (November-December 2011), Apple generated a staggering $46.33 billion in revenue, with $13.06 billion of that in profit. They sold 37.04 million iPhones and 15.43 million iPads, both increases of over 100%. With the new iPad launched near the end of the second quarter and the iPhone 4S still only half a year old, Apple’s revenues are likely to be high again.
The webcast of the conference call can be listened to here. You can access it from any iOS device running iOS 4.2 or later, any Mac running OS X 10.5 or later, or any PC running QuickTime 7 or later.
