Ioshackz.com Apple Announces 3Q 2020 Earnings: $59.7B Revenue & $11.25B Profit, More Apple has released earnings for its fiscal 2020 third quarter ended June 27, 2020. The company posted revenue of $59.7 billion, an increase of 11 percent from the year-ago quarter, along with a net quarterly profit of $11.25 billion, and quarterly earnings per diluted share of $2.58. In contrast, Apple reported revenue of $53.8 billion, a net quarterly profit of $10.0 billion, and earnings per diluted share of $2.18, in the year-ago quarter.
“Apple’s record June quarter was driven by double-digit growth in both Products and Services and growth in each of our geographic segments,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “In uncertain times, this performance is a testament to the important role our products play in our customers’ lives and to Apple’s relentless innovation. This is a challenging moment for our communities, and, from Apple’s new $100 million Racial Equity and Justice Initiative to a new commitment to be carbon neutral by 2030, we’re living the principle that what we make and do should create opportunity and leave the world better than we found it.”
Similar to the previous quarter, Apple is not issuing any guidance for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020.

Each Apple shareholder of record at the close of business on August 24, 2020, will receive three additional shares for every share held on the record date, and trading will begin on a split-adjusted basis on August 31, 2020.
