Apple Announces Third Quarter Earnings CallBy: Shaylin Clark - July 3, 2012
Apple has announced the details for their third quarter earnings call. According to a post on their Investor Relations website, Apple’s quarterly conference call will take place on July 24th at 2 PM Pacific Time, 5 PM Eastern.
Apple’s past two earnings reports have been pretty much nothing but good news for the Cupertino-based tech giant. The first quarter of their 2012 fiscal year (October-December 2011) was the best quarter in the company’s history. They posted $46.33 billion in revenue and $13.06 billion in profits. They also announced that they had sold 37.04 million iPhones, 15.43 million iPads, and 5.2 million Macs, all up significantly over the previous year. In the second quarter things dipped a bit, but not unexpectedly. In the second quarter they generated $39.2 billion in revenue and $11.6 billion in profit. They also sold 35.1 million iPhones, 11.8 million iPads, and 4 million Macs (again, all significant increases over the previous year).
That being the case, it’s a fair bet that Apple has more good news on tap for this next earnings call. There’s also a decent chance that they’ll announce the release date for OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, especially considering that they did the same for 10.7 Lion during last year’s Q3 call.
