Apple details iPod sales info in SEC filing

In its quarterly report (SEC form 10-Q) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission today, Apple summarized several iPod and iTunes related details.

iPod sales increased $138 million or 124% during the third quarter of 2004 compared to the same period in 2003. Sales of iPods rose $545 million or 243% in the first nine months of fiscal 2004. iPod unit sales of 860,000 for the quarter show a year-over-year increase of 183%.

“This growth was driven by continued strength in demand for the iPod, introduction of the iPod mini, increased expansion of [our] iPod distribution network, and continued success of the iTunes Music Store,” Apple said.

Net sales of Apple’s other music products (iTMS and iPod related services and accessories) increased 508% in the third quarter thanks to an increase in overall iPod unit sales and the introduction of the iTMS in Europe.

Apple also noted that it has sold approximately 3.7 million iPods since the device debuted in 2001.

it’s true, they go by the fiscal calendar. The third quarter of 2004 in the fiscal calendar is equal to the 1st quarter of 2004 in the regular, gregorian calendar.
