Apple iPhone Generates More Business/Profit Alone than Microsoft’s Altogether!
MG Sielger is a renowned tech analyst in the global business market. A recent note by Seilger just reveals an amazing fact: The revenue generated by iPhone business alone for Apple is bigger than Microsoft’s Overall business including its highly popular Windows, Office, and Xbox products. It is really very thoughtful for all techies, experts and market gurus how a business alone that established about five years ago (iPhone-2007) has beaten a company that was founded fifteen years ago (Microsoft-1997) and was said to be the world’s largest company once with a strongest market monopoly. Similarly, iPhone appears more profitable than Microsoft.
Let’s have a look into Apple’s recent financial results, in December 2011 quarter; Apple got huge revenue of $24.4 billion by the sales of iPhone only while Microsoft’s total revenue stuck to $20.9 billion generated from the sale of Windows, Office, Servers, and Xbox altogether.
Assuming that Apple earns the same operating profit margin (38%) from iPhone business that it collects from its overall business, Apple earned a profit of $9.3 billion from iPhone sales only while the entire profit earned by Microsoft from the business of its all products during same duration just remained at $8.2 billion only.
Just a few years ago, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer denied accepting the analysis that Apple’s market capitalization could surpass to Microsoft’s by saying that, besides market cap, Microsoft’s business will remain massively bigger and profitable than any other company.
But the recent figures are showing something very scary for Microsoft’s officials and the members of its think tank; Apple’s business is just twice the size of Microsoft’s, $46 billion: $21 billion and more than twice as profitable too, $17 billion: $8 billion.
And, finally it is now obvious that Apple’s market cap now is beyond Microsoft’s imagination.
It means the company “Apple” had a visionary tech legend “Steve Jobs” whoso innovative powers and futuristic approach has made it a tech giant as its one product “iPhone” only generates more business and profits for the company as compared to the business and profit of a full company “Microsoft”…. Besides of the fact that Microsoft is 1o years older than Apple….. a very awful situation for Microsoft’s governing body especially for Steve Ballmer….. now there is no meaning of Apple Vs Microsoft….even iPhone Vs Microsoft looks odd.
