The results are in—the
second quarter results, that is. In a formal press release, Apple today
announced financial results for its fiscal 2009 second quarter, ending
March 28, 2009. The company posted revenue of $8.16 billion and a net
quarterly profit of $1.21 billion, or $1.33 per diluted share. These
results are definitely ahead from last year’s report. Gross margin went
up 3.5 percent, landing at 36.4 percent.
Apple made its first appearance in the top 100 of the Fortune
500 since Steve Jobs’ return in the late nineties. The Silicon-Valley
based company rounded in at No. 71, partly due to the declining
fortunes of some of the firms that were above it, but mostly to
revenues that grew 35.3% to $32.479 billion in 2008.
