In urma cu cateva minute cei de la Apple au trimis un comunicat de presa prin care isi anunta rezultatele financiare pentru cel de-al doilea trimestru fiscal al anului 2013. Conform comnunicatului de presa transmis in cursul acestei seri, Apple a incasat in acest trimestru fiscal 35,3 miliarde de dolari, avand un profit net de 6,9 miliarde de dolari sau 7,47 $ per actiune, o scadere in ceea ce priveste pretul actiunilor sau profitul net inregistrat de companie daca este sa comparam cu cei 8,8 miliarde de dolari $ sau 9,32 $ per actiune care erau anuntati in trimestrul fiscal din urma cu un an. Marja bruta a acestui trimestru a fost de 36,9 procente in comparatie cu 42,8 procente care erau inregistrate in trimestrul de anul trecut, iar vanzarile internationale au insemnat 57% din totalul incasarilor din acest trimestru.
Compania din Cupertino ne anunta ca a vandut 31,2 milioane de iPhone-uri, 14,6 milioane de iPad-uri si 3,8 milioane de Mac-uri in trimestrul fiscal ce s-a incheiat la sfarsitul lunii iunie. In comparatie cu al doilea trimestru fiscal al anului trecut, vanzarile de iPhone-uri au crescut simtitor de la 26 milioane la 31,2 milioane, acesta fiind si un record de vanzari pentru iPhone-uri in al doilea trimestru fiscal al anului. Cat despre iPad, in comparatie cu trimestrul de anul trecut cand erau vandute 17 milioane de tablete, cifrele sunt mai mici, acelasi lucru vazandu-se si in cazul Mac-urilor a caror vanzari au scazut cu aproximativ 200,000 unitati fata de aceeasi perioada a anului trecut.
Fluxul de numerar provenit din operatiuni fiscale a fost de 7,8 miliarde, Apple returnand actionarikor 18,8 miliarde de dolari in dividende si rascumparari de actiuni. Pentru trimestrul fiscal al patrulea al acestui an cei de la Apple se asteapta la incasari de 34 de miliarde de dolari, la o marja bruta cuprinsa intre 36 si 37 procente, la cheltuieli in operatiuni cuprinse in 3,9 si 3,95 miliarde de dolari si la alte vanituri/cheltuieli de 200 de milioane.
Era de asteptat ca acest trimestru sa fie mai slab decat cel de anul trecut intrucat in aceasta perioada au crescut investitiile, ou fost rascumparate mai multe actiuni si au fost platite mai multe dividende catre actionari. Cat despre scaderea vanzarilor de iPad, era de asteptat sa se intample intrucat anul trecut era lansat in aceasta perioada cea de-a treia generatie a tabletei cu ecran de 9,7 inch.
