Apple Announces Revenue and Earnings Shortfall For Quarter

Apple Announces Revenue and Earnings Shortfall For Quarter

by , 8:40 PM EDT, June 18th, 2002

After Tuesday's market close Apple Computer announced that revenues and earnings would be below original estimates by about ten percent. Apple is now estimating revenues for its third fiscal quarter will be between $1.4 billion and $1.45 billion versus the $.16 billion originally estimated. Earnings per share will be between $.08 and $.10 per share versus Apple's April forecast of $.11 per share.

In a Reuters report on the Apple revenue and earnings warning, Fred Anderson, Apple's CFO, indicated that sales in Japan and Europe were particularly hard hit and that Apple's sales shortfall was in line with sales declines in the broader consumer PC business.

In after hours trading Apple's share slid as low as $17.30, but some analysts expect the stock to recover much of the loss on Wednesday, noting the slide may be an overreaction to market realities.

Apple issued the warning after Father's Day and seasonal graduation gift sales failed to hasten the pace of product sales following the traditionally slow April and May periods.
