Q3 2012 financial results

Apple has announced that it will be holding an earnings call to discuss the financial results of its third fiscal quarter on Tuesday, the 24th of July at 2.00pm Pacific Time (10.00pm in the UK). As usual, the company will be providing a live audio stream of the call on their website.

Having already confirmed that OS X Mountain Lion will be released before the end of July, there is some speculation that Apple could launch it the day after the call. During last year’s Q3 earnings call Appleā€™s Chief Financial Officer, Peter Oppenheimer, revealed that OS X Lion would be available to download the following day.

Apple reported $39.2 billion in revenue and a net profit of $11.6 billion, or $12.30 per diluted share for its second fiscal quarter. The company has told analysts to expect revenue of about $34 billion and diluted earnings per share of about $8.68 for its third fiscal quarter.

We will, of course, provide an overview of the results and any announcements regarding Mountain Lion on here.
