Apple has just released, as expected, its financial results for the fiscal third quarter 2017 finished on July 1st.

When Apple released its second quarter results, it forecast revenue between $ 43.5 billion and $ 45.5 billion. She closed the period in $ 45.4 billion, with net profit of $ 8.7 billion and earnings per diluted $ 1.67. The numbers compare to $ 42.4 billion, $ 7.8 billion and $ 1.42, respectively, a year ago. International sales accounted for 61% of all quarterly revenue.

Here are the numbers by segments:

  • iPhone: 41 million units (+ 2%), revenue of US $ 24.8 billion (+ 3%)
  • iPad: 11.4 million units (+ 15%), revenue of US $ 5 billion (+ 2%)
  • Mac: 4.3 million units (+ 1%), revenue of $ 5.6 billion (+ 7%)
  • Services: revenue of $ 7.3 billion (+ 22%)
  • Others: revenue of $ 2.7 billion (+ 23%)

Absolutely everything positive, and a beautiful ?resurgence? for the iPad that had been falling for many quarters.

The statement of the executive director (CEO) Tim Cook:

With 7% higher revenue year-on-year, we are pleased to announce our third consecutive quarter of accelerated growth and a historic quarterly record for Service revenue. We held an incredibly successful Worldwide Developers Conference in June, and we are very excited about the advances in iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS that will arrive this fall (from the northern hemisphere).

And that of the CFO Luca Maestri:

We reported growth in units and revenue across all of our product categories in the June quarter, generating a 17% growth in earnings per share. We also returned $ 11.7 billion to investors during the quarter, bringing the cumulative capital returns under our program to nearly $ 223 billion.

Looking ahead to the fourth fiscal quarter of 2017, Apple predicts revenue between $ 49 and $ 52 billion, a gross margin between 37.5% and 38%, operating expenses between $ 6.7 and $ 6.8 billion, other income / (expenses) of $ 500 million and a tax rate of 25.5%.

Apple's board of directors declared a cash dividend of $ 0.63 per company share, payable on August 17, 2017 to all shareholders registered at the close of business on August 14, 2017.

In a little while, at 6 pm (for Braslia's time), Apple will make a live audio broadcast to publicize and comment on all these financial results. O MacMagazine follow the occasion closely and bring all the highlights later here to the website, as always.

The market is already reacting very well to the figures, of course. In NASDAQ post-closing trading, the $ AAPL is shooting up 5.5%, quoted at $ 158.35. If she opens the business at this rate tomorrow, it will hit a historic record for her shares.
