Apple Q1 2012 Revenue Tops $46B

Apple’s figures for its first fiscal quarter of 2012 are out, and with US$46.33 billion in revenue the company came in above analyst expectations. Profits for the quarter came in at $13.06 billion, or $13.87 per diluted share, and Mac, iPhone and iPad numbers were up year over year.

Mac sales climbed 26 percent compared to the same quarter last year to 5.2 million units, continuing the company’s upward trend in PC sales while the rest of the market is in decline. iPhone sales shot up 128 percent with 37.04 million units sold, and iPad sales hit 15.43 million units, up 111 percent.

“We’re thrilled with our outstanding results and record-breaking sales of iPhones, iPads and Macs,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook.

“Thrilled” seems like a reasonable response since the company broke its quarterly records yet again.

Apple’s CFO Peter Oppenheimer added “Looking ahead to the second fiscal quarter of 2012, which will span 13 weeks, we expect revenue of about $32.5 billion and we expect diluted earnings per share of about $8.50.”

Apple is currently trading at $457 after hours, up 36.59 (8.70%).
