Official Apple Q3 results
As promised, Apple has published the results of its fiscal third quarter, which ended June 27th. Total GAAP revenue is calculated to have been $8.34 billion, generating a net profit of $1.23 billion, and earnings per share of $1.35. Gross margins are reported at 36.3 percent, up from 34.8 percent a year ago; the figure is also substantially higher than many research estimates.
Non-GAAP revenue -- incorporating the iPhone and the Apple TV -- is said to include $9.74 billion in adjusted sales, and $1.94 billion in adjusted net income. Within the sales numbers are said to be 2.6 million Macs, a four percent growth over Q308. iPods rose 7 percent to 10.2 million, while iPhone units grew a colossal 626 percent, hitting 5.2 million. The latter figure is attributable to the iPhone 3G only launching in July of 2008.
In a statement, CFO Peter Oppenheimer describes the quarter as showing "record non-holiday quarter revenue and earnings," built off operations of $2.3 billion. Guidance for Q409 includes revenue between $8.7 and $8.9 billion, and an EPS ranging from $1.18 to $1.23.
