FY 18 Q4 Results
Apple hat gestern seine hervorragenden Zahlen für das vierte Quartal im Geschäftsjahr 2018 veröffentlicht, d.h. für den Zeitraum Juli bis September 2018, und während der Konferenzschaltung ein paar wenige Aussagen über die Retail Stores getroffen. Aus dem Webcast des Conference Calls vom 1. November lässt sich der relevante Absatz wie folgt zitieren:
"Our retail team posted record Q4 results to conclude their biggest year ever. They are transforming our stores into places where customers come to connect, learn, and be inspired together with people from their community. Our Today at Apple sessions are a terrific example of what that looks like in practice. We hosted over 250,000 Today at Apple sessions this quarter, connecting aspiring creators with local photographers, illustrators, and other experts who can help them get the most out of their devices. Apple stores also hosted 74,000 kids at Apple camp.
The relationship Apple has with our customers is about more than just making a purchase. With the recent addition of beautiful new stores in Italy, Japan, China, and in just a few weeks, Thailand, we will have 506 stores where we can further those relationships, almost half of which are outside the United States." — Tim Cook, CEO
