“We’re thrilled to report our best non-holiday quarter ever, with revenues up 49 percent and profits up 90 percent,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “We’ve launched our revolutionary new iPad and users are loving it, and we have several more extraordinary products in the pipeline for this year.”
Apple proves another big thing, their “latest creation” –apparently not –but the latest record breaking non-holiday quarter earnings. According to their latest report, the company has just announced that they managed to post the best quarter for iPhones sale with 8.75 million for the second fiscal quarter of 2010. Apple posted revenue of $13.50 billion and net quarterly profit of $3.07 billion, or $3.33 per diluted share, compared to revenue of $9.08 billion and net quarterly profit of $1.62 billion, or $1.79 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter.
Apple iPhone’s posting since launch of 42.4 million units combined this quarter 8.75 million puts the grand total of 51.15 million. Quarterly iPhone unit sales reached 8.75 million, up 131 percent from the year-ago quarter.
In addition, Apple was able to put 2.94 million Macintosh computers during the quarter, a unit increase of 33 percent over the year-ago quarter apparently the 10.89 million iPods sales during the quarter, representing 1 percent unit decline over the year-ago quarter.
Positively Apple’s looking forward the third quarter of fiscal 2010 with expected revenue of $13.0 billion to $13.4 billion and earnings per diluted share of $2.28 to $2.39.
Right now, it has no doubt that Apple could possibly even reach beyond their expected 3Q revenue since the iPad and the new iPhone 4G is lined up for releases.
