Apple Annual Shareholder Meeting Set for Feb 25

Apple's annual shareholder meeting is scheduled for Thursday, February 25, at 10AM pacific time. The Mac and iPhone maker will field questions from stockholders, and there is speculation that CEO Steve Jobs will make an appearance at the event, too.

The annual shareholders meeting follows the company's record breaking first quarter earnings report from January.

Apple reported US$15.68 billion in revenue, with profits of $3.38 billion and $3.67 EPS for its December quarter. It sold 3.36 million Macs in Q1, up 33 percent year over year, along with 8.7 million iPhone and 21 million iPods. iPhone sales figures were up 100 percent compared to the same quarter last year.

Mr. Jobs's presence at the shareholder meeting would make at least some investors happy since he skipped last year's event for medical reasons. He had been on medical leave for pancreatic cancer treatment and a liver transplant.
