Apple Announces Q4 2011 Conference Call For October 18

As usual after the end of a fiscal quarter, Apple refreshed its Investor web page and activated the URL that will redirect to its next conference call webcast. For the fourth fiscal quarter, which ended on Saturday, September 24th, Apple has announced that they will announce results on October 18th.

Apple’s conference call webcast discussing Q4 - 2011 financial results will begin at 2:00pm PT/5:00pm ET on Tuesday, October 18, 2011.

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. For more information on the factors that could influence results, please refer to Apple’s SEC filings.

In Q3 2011, Apple posted $28.57 billion of revenue with 20.34 million iPhones, 9.25 million iPads, and 3.95 million Macs sold. The company posted record quarterly revenue of $28.57 billion and record quarterly net profit of $7.31 billion, or $7.79 per diluted share. Also in Q3, Apple reported an amazing growth in China with revenue of $3.8 billion during the quarter. In the year-ago quarter, Apple posted revenue of $20.34 billion with 3.89 million Macs, 14.1 million iPhones and 4.19 million iPads sold during the quarter.

Initially rumored to be released in September, Apple’s fourth quarter won’t include any iPhone 5-related results – the device is now rumored to be unveiled at a media event on October 4th. The earnings call will provide, however, insight into Apple’s summer release cycle, which saw updates for the popular MacBook Air line, new Mac minis, and the release of OS X Lion in July. If most recent rumors are to be believed, the Q4 earnings call might be a way for Apple to announce day-one sales of the next iPhone, rumored to be hitting the U.S. marked in mid-October.

We will provide live updates from the call on our site’s homepage on October 18 starting at 2 PM PT.
