Net profit of Western Digital in annual terms grew more than tenfold

Published

on

Western Digital has released a report for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2021. Recall that not all companies have a fiscal year that coincides with a calendar year, so there is no mistake – in April it is quite possible to report for the third quarter.

Revenue for the reporting period amounted to $ 4.137 billion. A year ago, the value of this indicator was equal to $ 4.175 billion, that is, in annual terms, it decreased by 1%. Gross profit increased slightly – from 24.1% to 26.4%, that is, by 2.3 percentage points.

Operating income was $ 317 million. This is 107% more than the $ 153 million reported in the fiscal 2020 third quarter.

Finally, the net income was $ 197 million. Considering that a year ago it was exactly $ 17 million, we get an impressive growth rate – 1059%, or about 11.6 times. However, if you do not follow the formal GAAP accounting rules, but carry out a more realistic calculation, it will turn out that the net profit for the year increased from $ 257 to $ 318 million, that is, by 24%.

It remains to add that during the quarter the company paid off $ 212 million in debt, and by the end it had $ 2.7 billion in cash and cash equivalents.

Apple has a brand new product almost ready The company

It looks like Apple’s mixed reality headset is indeed in its final stages of development.

Apple has a brand new product almost ready.  The company first showed a mixed reality headset to the board of directors

The source claims that last week Apple demonstrated the device to the Board of Directors for the first time.

Initially, Apple allegedly planned to announce at WWDC 2022, but technical problems, including overheating, forced the company to change plans. At the same time, Apple recently accelerated the development of the RealityOS operating system, on the basis of which the headset will work.

Apple is now expected to introduce the device either in the fall along with the iPhone 14 or as early as early 2023. Given that the company’s smartwatches were introduced in 2014 and AirPods were shown in 2016, this will be Apple’s first brand new product in years.

There are not so many details about the device on the Web, and even those sometimes vary greatly. For example, the headset is credited with 15 cameras required for gesture tracking, micro-OLED screens, a gaze tracking system, and a price in excess of $2,000.

The undisputed leader is Apple, which increased sales by 19%, taking 51% of the market with 19.9 million smartphones sold. Samsung increased sales by only 1%, to 10.5 million, taking 27% of the market. Motorola closes the top three with a growth of 56%, a share of 10% and 4 million smartphones sold.

Fourth place goes to TCL, which sells Alcatel-branded smartphones. The company’s sales fell 21% to 1.4 million smartphones. And, apparently, in the near future it will shift to fifth place, as Google is growing at an incredible pace.

The search giant’s smartphone sales are up 380% (or more, but more on that below)! As a result, the company now occupies 3% of the market, having sold 1.2 million smartphones in the quarter. Still, despite a number of data, sales of the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are clearly very good by the standards of Google itself.

All other brands in North America account for only 15% of the market, and sales of all these companies in total collapsed by 64%, to 2.1 million units.

Separately, it is worth noting that in some points the data in the table looks strange. In particular, Google’s growth from 0.2 million to 1.2 million smartphones is clearly over 380%.

There isn’t much information out there yet. We are talking about a screen with a resolution of 2360 x 1640 pixels, 64-128 GB of flash memory and 4-6 GB of RAM. The tablet will be available in three colors, with one of the colors taken from smartphones in the GT line. You can also see the stylus in the image.

Given the design and resolution, we can definitely say that this will not be just a slightly modified Realme Pad. Recall that the tablet was credited with Snapdragon 870, and some version with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 may also come out.

The price is a plug of 9999 yuan, so there is no point in talking about it.
