Today Apple announced financial results for the 3rd fiscal quarter and 2nd calendar quarter of 2015. And it’s really good, mostly.
Let’s have a look at some of the numbers.
* Total revenue was $49.6 Billion, for this time last year it was $37.4 Billion.
* Total profit (the good stuff) was net $10.7 Billion, for this time last year it was $7.7 Billion.
* That’s profit of $1.85 per diluted share if you’re lucky enough to be an Apple shareholder. Thats up from $1.28 per diluted share a year ago.
* International sales accounted for 64% of revenue.
*Apple announced a dividend payment of $0.52 per share to be paid on August 13th to shareholders of record as of August 10th.
*Apple has an impossible to imagine (but we like to think about Scrooge McDuck’s daily money swim animation) $202.8 billion in cash and marketable securities.
* All this revenue? Mostly from iPhones. Apple sold 47.5 million iPhones during the quarter. For this time last year it sold 35.2 million.
* Mac sales are also up, with 4.8 million units being sold, up from 4.4 million for this time last year.
*The bad news bear came in the form of the iPad, which is still in decline, with sales falling from 13.3 million to 10.9 million.
From the sauce:
“We had an amazing quarter, with iPhone revenue up 59 percent over last year, strong sales of Mac, all-time record revenue from services, driven by the App Store, and a great start for Apple Watch,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “The excitement for Apple Music has been incredible, and we’re looking forward to releasing iOS 9, OS X El Capitan and watchOS 2 to customers in the fall.”
Dollar dollar bills, y’all!
