Apple on Wednesday filed its annual 10-K with the SEC and within it are a number of interesting tidbits.
First, Apple now enjoys $81.6 billion in cash and long and short-term investment securities. Investors, though, shouldn’t expect Apple to release a dividend anytime soon as the company reiterated its plans to reinvest its profits back into the business. And with Apple’s share price consistently flirting with all-time highs ever few weeks, we’re not one to argue.
With respect to employees, Apple now boasts over 60,400 full-time employees and another 2,900 employees who work on a non-permanent basis. That’s a huge increase – 39% to be exact – from the 46,000 employees Apple reported on their 2010 10-K. Notably, 36,000 of those employees are Apple retail employees.
Real Estate wise, Apple in 2010 reported 13.2 million sq feet of building space with 3 million of that square footage coming from its retail stores.
And speaking of, Apple retail stores now number 357 across the globe, up from 317 at the end of the 2010 fiscal year. The average number of retail employees per store grew from 83.6 to 100. 28 of Apple’s 40 new retail stores in 2010 are located outside of the US. Over the past year, net sales derived from Apple’s retail operation accounted for 15% of the company’s total sales.
Product wise, here’s how Apple’s wildly successful 2010 stacked up.
The iPhone, not surprisingly, accounted for more than 40% of Apple’s net sales and contributed $47 billion to Apple’s revenue for the year.. All told, Apple sold 72.29 million iPhones over the last year.
As for the iPad, that accounted for $20.36 billion of Apple’s 2010 revenue with Apple selling $32.39 billion of them over the past 12 months.
Mac wise, Apple sold 16.74 million Macs with notebooks comprising 72% of those sales.
And last, and I suppose least is the iPod which contributed a relatively measly $7.45 billion to Apple’s bottom line.
