Apple Reports First Quarter Results

 

Apple Delivers Record Revenue & Earnings

 

CUPERTINO, California—January 18, 2006—Apple® today announced financial results for its fiscal 2006 first quarter ended December 31, 2005, reporting the highest revenue and earnings in the Company’s history. Apple posted revenue of $5.75 billion and a net quarterly profit of $565 million, or $.65 per diluted share, in this 14-week quarter. These results compare to revenue of $3.49 billion and a net profit of $295 million, or $.35 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Gross margin was 27.2 percent, down from 28.5 percent in the year-ago quarter. International sales accounted for 40 percent of the quarter’s revenue.

 

Apple shipped 1,254,000 Macintosh® computers and 14,043,000 iPods during the quarter, representing 20 percent growth in Macs and 207 percent growth in iPods over the year-ago quarter.

 

“We are thrilled to report the best quarter in Apple’s history,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “Two highlights of an incredible quarter were selling 14 million iPods and getting ready to launch our new Macs with Intel processors five to six months ahead of expectations. We are working on more wonderful products for 2006, and I can’t wait to see what our customers think of them.”

 

“We’re very pleased to report year-over-year revenue growth of 65 percent and net income that was nearly twice the year-ago level,” said Peter Oppenheimer, Apple’s CFO. “Looking ahead to the second quarter of fiscal 2006, we expect revenue of about $4.3 billion. We expect GAAP earnings per diluted share of about $.38, including an estimated $.04 per share expense impact from non-cash stock-based compensation, translating to non-GAAP EPS of about $.42.”

 

Apple will provide live streaming of its Q1 2006 financial results conference call utilizing QuickTime®, Apple’s standards-based technology for live and on-demand audio and video streaming. The live webcast will begin at 2:00 p.m. PST on Wednesday January 18, 2006 at http://www.apple.com/quicktime/qtv/earningsq106/ and will also be available for replay. The QuickTime player is available free for Macintosh and Windows users at www.apple.com/quicktime .

 



 

This press release contains forward-looking statements about the Company’s estimated revenue and earnings as well as the estimated expense impact of non-cash stock-based compensation for the second quarter of fiscal 2006. These statements involve risks and uncertainties and actual results may differ. Potential risks and uncertainties include continued competitive pressures in the marketplace; the effect competitive and economic factors and the Company’s reaction to them may have on consumer and business buying decisions with respect to the Company’s products; the ability of the Company to make timely delivery of new programs, products and successful technological innovations to the marketplace; the continued availability on acceptable terms of certain components and services essential to the Company’s business currently obtained by the Company from sole or limited sources including G4 and G5 microprocessors; possible disruption in commercial activities caused by terrorist activity and armed conflict, such as changes in logistics and security arrangements, and reduced end-user purchases relative to expectations; possible disruption in commercial activity as a result of natural disasters or major health concerns including epidemics; risks associated with the Company’s retail initiative including significant investment cost, uncertain consumer acceptance and potential impact on existing reseller relationships; the effect that the Company’s dependency on manufacturing and logistics services provided by third parties may have on the quality, quantity or cost of products manufactured or services rendered; the Company’s reliance on the availability of third-party digital content; the ability of the Company to successfully evolve its operating system; the ability of the Company to make timely delivery of new products with Intel microprocessors and related hardware and software technological changes and innovations to support Intel microprocessors; the development and availability on acceptable terms of components and services essential to enable the Company to deliver products based on Intel microprocessors in a timely manner; the Company’s dependency on third-party software developers to timely develop future applications that support Intel microprocessors and Power PC microprocessors; and the potential negative ramifications of the transition of all Macs to Intel microprocessors by the end of calendar 2006, or the announcement of such planned transition, for sales of current or future Mac products with Power PC processors as well as for the Company’s obligations under component purchase agreements. More information on potential factors that could affect the Company’s financial results is included from time to time in the Company’s public reports filed with the SEC, including the Company’s Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 24, 2005, and the Company’s Form 10-Q for the quarter ended December 31, 2005 to be filed with the SEC. The Company assumes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements or information, which speak as of their respective dates.

(a)  These adjustments reconcile the Company’s GAAP results of operations to its non-GAAP results of operations. The Company believes that presentation of results excluding items such as non-cash stock-based compensation, restructuring costs, and investment gains provides meaningful supplemental information to both management and investors that is indicative of the Company’s core operating results and facilitates comparison of operating results across reporting periods. The Company uses these non-GAAP measures when evaluating its financial results as well as for internal planning and forecasting purposes.  These non-GAAP measures should not be viewed as a substitute for the Company’s GAAP results. The Company adopted the fair-value recognition provisions of SFAS No. 123 revised (123R) to expense stock-based compensation in its fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2005.  Prior to the adoption of SFAS No. 123R, the Company accounted for employee stock-based compensation using the intrinsic value method prescribed by APB No. 25.

 

(b)   These adjustments reflect the non-cash stock-based compensation expense as measured under SFAS No. 123R related to unvested stock awards, including stock options, restricted stock, restricted stock units, and employee stock purchase plan shares.  The fair-value calculated expense as determined on the awards’ grant date is recognized as the requisite service is rendered.

 

(c)    These adjustments reflect the non-cash compensation expense as measured under APB No. 25 related primarily to restricted stock awarded to the Company’s CEO in fiscal 2003 and restricted stock units awarded to selected members of the Company’s senior management team in fiscal 2004 and 2005. Note that neither the Company’s GAAP nor non-GAAP results

 



 

of operations in fiscal year 2005 included the accounting impact had the Company chosen to apply the fair-value recognition provisions of SFAS No. 123R.

 

(d)   Amount reflects the expected tax impact on the above noted non-GAAP adjustments.

(a)  These adjustments reconcile the Company’s GAAP to its non-GAAP financial guidance for the second quarter of fiscal 2006. The Company believes that excluding items such as non-cash stock-based compensation provides meaningful supplemental information to both management and investors that is indicative of the Company’s core operating results and facilitates comparison of operating results across reporting periods. The Company uses these non-GAAP measures when evaluating its financial results as well as for internal planning and forecasting purposes.  These non-GAAP measures should not be viewed as a substitute for the Company’s GAAP results.

 

(b)  Reflects the expected non-cash compensation expense attributable to stock-based compensation awards including stock options, restricted stock, restricted stock units, and employee stock purchase plan shares. This amount reflects the total estimated expense from the application of SFAS No. 123R, which the Company adopted in the first quarter of fiscal 2006.

 

(c)    Amount reflects the expected tax impact on the above noted non-GAAP adjustments.

 

(d)   This adjustment represents the expected net of tax impact on earnings per share from the non-GAAP adjustments related to stock-based compensation expense.
