On Wednesday January 17, 2007, Apple Inc released financial results for its fiscal 2007 first quarter (Q1).

Apple posted record revenue of $7.1 billion and record net quarterly profit of $1.0 billion, or $1.14 per diluted share. These results compare to revenue of $5.7 billion and net quarterly profit of $565 million, or $.65 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Gross margin was 31.2 percent, up from 27.2 percent in the year-ago quarter. International sales accounted for 42 percent of the quarter's revenue.

1.6 Million Macs Sold
A highlight of the report was the 1,606,000 Macs sold during the quarter.  The breakdown by type was as follows:
  • Portables sales: 969,000
  • Desktop sales:  637,000
Note that portables include the MacBook, iBook, MacBook Pro and PowerBook product lines. Desktops include the iMac, eMac, Mac mini, Mac Pro, PowerMac and Xserve product lines.

Mac Unit Breakdowns by Region and Operating Segment:
  • Americas: 625,000
  • Europe: 491,000
  • Japan: 70,000
  • Retail: 308,000
  • Other Segments: 112,000
More detals to follow once the earnings conference call has concluded.  Earlier today we posted our prediction of 1.85 million Macs for the quarter.  We're a bit disappointed with these numbers are they were below the 1.61 million sold last quarter (Q4 2006).  The is the first drop in Mac shipments since the second quarter of 2006 (Q2 2006).
