Q1 Resultaten Apple: record omzetten maar koers toch onderuit

appledollarEen recordkwartaal! Dat is wat Apple zojuist bekendmaakte. In het eerste fiscale kwartaal van 2013 heeft Apple maar liefst 54.5 miljard dollar omzet geboekt met een bijbehorende winst van 13.1 miljard dollar.

Daar zit hem dan ook direct het pijnpunt, want de winst was identiek als het jaar daarvoor, maar wel met een fors hogere omzet dit keer. De brutowinstmarge daalde dan ook van 44,7 procent tot 38,6 procent. Reden voor de beurs om Apple in de nabeurs handel vast op -4% te zetten.

In het eerste kwartaal wist Apple 22,9 miljoen iPads aan de man te brengen tegen 15,4 miljoen stuks in het eerste kwartaal van 2012, een dikke stijging dus.

Er werden door Apple 47.8 miljoen iPhones verkocht, een absoluut record. Dus zo’n tegenvaller is de iPhone 5 toch niet? Wat helaas niet zo goed ging waren de verkopen van de iPod en de Macs. 

De verwachting voor het komende kwartaal is helaas niet positief. Apple denkt minder te verkopen dan waar de analisten op rekenden (tussen de 41 en 43 miljard dollar). Ook de winstmarge blijft onder druk staan.

Dit is de officiële press-release:

Apple today announced financial results for its 13-week fiscal 2013 first quarter ended December 29, 2012. The Company posted record quarterly revenue of $54.5 billion and record quarterly net profit of $13.1 billion, or $13.81 per diluted share. These results compare to revenue of $46.3 billion and net profit of $13.1 billion, or $13.87 per diluted share, in the 14-week year-ago quarter. Gross margin was 38.6 percent compared to 44.7 percent in the year-ago quarter. International sales accounted for 61 percent of the quarter’s revenue.

“We’re thrilled with record revenue of over $54 billion and sales of over 75 million iOS devices in a single quarter,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We’re very confident in our product pipeline as we continue to focus on innovation and making the best products in the world.”

“We’re pleased to have generated over $23 billion in cash flow from operations during the quarter,” said Peter Oppenheimer, Apple’s CFO. “We established new all-time quarterly records for iPhone and iPad sales, significantly broadened our ecosystem, and generated Apple’s highest quarterly revenue ever.”
