Apple’s Tim Cook Gives Workers Kudos for Strong Quarter
Apple’s Tim Cook gives workers kudos for strong quarter
Apple CEO Tim Cook gave his employees a pat on the back for their contributions to the latest quarterly results.
In an e-mail distributed throughout Apple yesterday, Cook praised workers for their “incredible hard work and focus” in “another record setting quarter.” Apple’s CEO noted that more than 75 million iOS devices were sold last quarter, which he called a “testament to the strength of Apple’s innovation.”
An employee Town Hall meeting is slated for today at 10 a.m. PT where Cook will answer questions submitted in advanced. As shared by 9to5Mac, here’s Cook’s e-mail of congratulations to employees:
Team, We’ve just reported another record setting quarter, thanks to everyone’s incredible hard work and focus. We sold over 75 million iOS devices in the holiday quarter alone, which is a testament to the strength of Apple’s innovation. Please join me for an employee communications meeting tomorrow at 10 a.m. Pacific time in the auditorium of De Anza 3. We’ve created a space on AppleWeb where you can submit your questions in advance, and we’ll do our best to answer as many of them as we can during the meeting. The meeting will be broadcast live throughout Cupertino and at many other Apple locations. Please check AppleWeb for details. Tim
Though Cook seemed pleased with the latest results, at least publicly, Apple investors have been less than kind. The company posted record sales of $54.5 billion, but Wall Street was looking for $54.7 billion. In reaction, Apple’s stock has been hammered since the results were revealed on Wednesday.
But much of the concern is over Apple’s future. Analysts and investors alike are worried that Apple won’t be able to maintain its usual high-growth performance and that its best days may be behind it.
