It also sold 1.119 million iPhones in the quarter, bringing the total number of units sold up to nearly 1.4 million. The company posted revenue of $6.22 billion and net quarterly profit of $904 million, or $1.01 per diluted share, compared with revenue of $4.84 billion and net quarterly profit of $542 million, or $.62 per diluted share in Q4 2006. Sales of Other Music Related Products + Services were up 33% over the year-ago quarter, but down slightly from Q3 2007, to $601 million total. That category includes iTunes Store sales, iPod services, and revenues from Apple and third-party iPod accessories.
“We are very pleased to have generated over $24 billion in revenue and $3.5 billion in net income in fiscal 2007,” said Apple CEO Steve Jobs. “We’re looking forward to a strong December quarter as we enter the holiday season with Apple’s best products ever.”
“Apple ended the fiscal year with $15.4 billion in cash and no debt,” said Peter Oppenheimer, Apple’s CFO. “Looking ahead to the first quarter of fiscal 2008, we expect revenue of about $9.2 billion and earnings per diluted share of about $1.42.”
