Apple anunta trimestrial rezultatele financiare, care sunt discutate de membrii echipei de conducere in cadrul unei teleconferinte, ce este adresata investitorilor. Pe data de intai a lunii curente, compania din Cupertino ne anunta ca astazi, 22 iulie, va anunta rezultatele financiare si va organiza, la ora 24:00 (ora Romaniei), o teleconferinta in cadrul careia vor discuta realizarile companiei directorul general al companiei, Tim Cook, impreuna cu directorul economic, Luca Maestri.

In cursul zilei de marti, compania americana a trimis un comunicat de presa prin care si-a anuntat toate realizarile financiare de pe al doilea trimestru al anului fiscal 2014 (trimestrul fiscal 3 in SUA). Potrivit comunicatului, cifra de afaceri a companiei pe al doilea trimestru al anului fiscal curent a fost de 37,4 miliarde de dolari, depasind asteptarile analistilor de pe Wall Street si incadrandu-se in ghidajul trimestrial anuntat in urma cu 3 luni (36-38 miliarde de dolari). Profitul companiei pe trimestrul aprilie-iunie a fost de 7,7 miliarde de dolari sau 1,28$ per actiune. Marja bruta pentru acest trimestru a fost de 39,4 procente, fiind mai mare decat cele 36,9 procente inregistrate in acelasi trimestru al anului trecut. In comparatie, in aceeasi perioada a anului trecut, Apple a avut incasari de 35,3 miliarde de dolari si un profit net de 6,9 miliarde de dolari sau 1,07$ pe actiune. Avand aceste realizari financiare, acesta este si cel mai profitabil trimestru fiscal 2 din istoria companiei Apple.

Ca de obicei, compania Apple dezvaluit si numarul de vanzari pentru principalii generatori de venituri. Astfel, americanii raporteaza vanzarea a 35,2 milioane de dispozitive iPhone, 13,2 milioane de iPad-uri, 4,4 milioane de Mac-uri si 2,9 milioane de iPod-uri. In aceeasi perioada a anului trecut firma americana comercializa 31,2 milioane de dispozitive iPhone, 14,6 milioane de tablete iPad si 3,8 milioane de Mac-uri. Observam ca vanzarile de iPhone au inregistrat din nou o crestere de vanzari anuala, vanzarile de iPad o scadere destul de insemnata, iar Mac-urile o insemnata crestere. Toate cifrele prezentate acum de Apple depasesc previziunile analistilor de pe Wall Street, un lucru ce nu ne mai poate surprinde cu nimic.

In cadrul comunicatului de presa trimis de compania americana mai aflam ca circuitul financiar generat din operatiuni a fost de 10,3 miliarde de dolari, iar catre investitori au fost returnate lichiditati in valoare de nu mai putin de 8 miliarde de dolari prin dividende si rascumparari de actiuni in cadrul acestui trimestru incheiat la 30 iunie. Pana in prezent, compania americana a rascumparat actiuni in valoare de 74 de miliarde de dolari din totalul de 130 de miliarde pe care trebuie sa le rascumpere in viitoarele sase trimestre fiscale. De asemenea, consiliul director al companiei a aprobat plata a 0,47 $ din valoarea unei actiuni, suma reprezentand dividendele cuvenite investitorilor ca urmare a cresterii cifrei de afaceri. In scurtul sau comentariu, directorul general al Apple a declarat ca echipa americana este extrem de incantata de lansarea iOS 8, OS X Yosemite si a celorlalte produse si servicii pe care asteapta cu nerabdare sa le introduca.

Rezerva monetara a companiei Apple este de 150,6 miliarde de dolari, divizata in lichiditati si valori monetare vandabile. Compania din Cupertino se asteapta ca in trimestrul fiscal viitor (perioada iulie-septembrie) sa aiba incasari cuprinse intre 37 de miliarde de dolari si 40 de miliarde de dolari, o marja bruta intre 37 si 38 de procente, costuri de operatiuni cuperinse intre 4,75 miliarde $ si 4,85 miliarde $ si alte cheltuieli sau incasari de 250 de milioane $.

Trimestrul fiscal 2 al anului 2014 a fost unul extrem de important pentru compania americana a carei consiliu director a aprobat achizitionarea companiei Beats pentru suma totala de 3 miliarde de dolari. In ceea ce proveste produsele lansate, cele mai importante anunturi au fost iOS 8, OS X Yosemite si noile instrumente adresate dezvoltatorilor. In cursul acestui trimestru, Apple a pus in vanzare o noua versiune de iPod touch cu stocare de 16 GB, un iMac mai ieftin si noi modele de MacBook Air. De asemenea, tot in cursul acestui trimestru s-a divizat valoarea actiunilor companiei intr-un raport de 7 la 1 (de aceea profitul raportat per actiune este atat de mic).

Incepand cu ora 24:00, veti putea urmari in direct teleconferinta Apple in cadrul careia vor fi discutate aceste rezultate financiare si prezentate alte realizari ale companiei de catre directorul general al companiei, alaturi de directorul economic. Maine, vom prezenta cele mai importante date discutate in cadrul acestei teleconferinte.
