Looks like it’s that time again -- Apple has announced that their 2011 first quarter financial results will be revealed in a conference call on Tuesday, January 18 at 2pm PST (5pm EST). Spoiler alert: Another boffo quarter is anticipated.
Apple has confirmed that its 2011 fiscal year financials for the first quarter will be revealed on Tuesday, January 18, which will be webcast to anyone interested in joining via Quicktime. The conference call kicks off at 2pm PST (5pm EST).
“Please note that comments made during this call may include forward-looking statements that are subject to risks and uncertainties, and that actual results may differ materially from these forward-looking statements,” Apple notes on their page for the conference call. “For more information on the factors that could influence results, please refer to Apple’s SEC filings.”
So what can we expect from the Q1 2011 financials? Early figures released from Gartner and IDC show continued market share growth for the company, while the iPad appears to be keeping other vendors’ netbooks at bay.
“iPad sales are expected to impress with that product becoming this holiday season’s most-demanded gift,” reports 9to5Mac. “iPhone sales numbers could surprise, but recent moves to propel sales with the debut of the device on Verizon should boost units moved in the current quarter. iPod sales will likely decline slightly, buoyed by the iPod touch.”
Given that Apple’s Q1 2011 ended December 31, the Mac App Store won’t be part of the financial equation just yet, but there should be plenty else to take in come Tuesday.
Of course, after last quarter’s surprise visit by CEO Steve Jobs, where he went on the defensive against RIM and Google, things are likely to be more low-key this time around. Tune in at 2pm PST / 5pmPST on Tuesday to find out!
