Apple shipped 1,236,000 Macintosh units and 6,451,000 iPods
during the quarter, representing 48 percent growth in Macs and
220 percent growth in iPods over the year-ago quarter.
For fiscal 2005, the Company generated revenue of $13.93 billion
and a net profit of $1.335 billion, reflecting annual growth of
68 percent and 384 percent, respectively, and representing the
highest annual revenue and net profit in the Company’s history.
“We’re thrilled to have concluded the best year in Apple’s
history, with 68 percent year-over-year revenue growth and 384
percent net profit growth,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “This
is the direct result of our focus on innovation and the immense
talent and creativity at Apple. We could not be more excited
about the new products we’re working on for 2006.”
So much for concerns (including mine) that pre-announcing the switch
to Intel was going to cause Mac sales to dip in the interim.
