Apple Think Different

  Intr-un comunicat de presa ce tocmai a fost publicat, compania Apple a anuntat ca va incepe sa ofere divedende actionarilor sai si va initia un program prin care va rascumpara o parte din actiunile vandute de-a lungul timpului. Acest comunicat vine in urma anuntului facut aseara de catre Apple, anunt prin care eram informati ca astazi vom afla cum intentioneaza compania sa foloseasca rezerva monetara de 100 de miliarde de dolari. Se pare ca 10 miliarde de dolari vor fi cheltuiti pe rascumpararea actiunilor iar procesul va incepe pe data de 30 septembrie 2012 si va dura nu mai putin de 3 ani. Pe 30 septembrie 2012 se incheie anul fiscal al companiei Apple deci procesul va incepe o data cu anul fiscal 2013.

Additionally, the Company’s Board of Directors has authorized a $10 billion share repurchase program commencing in the Company’s fiscal 2013, which begins on September 30, 2012. The repurchase program is expected to be executed over three years, with the primary objective of neutralizing the impact of dilution from future employee equity grants and employee stock purchase programs.

  Pe langa rascumpararea actiunilor, Apple intentioneaza sa ofere dividende trimestriale in valoare de 2.65$ per actiune tuturor actionarilor sai deci toti cei care au investit ceva la Apple vor incepe sa primeasca banii inapoi. Tot ceea ce face Apple acum este in aparenta contradictie cu modul in care Steve Jobs a condus Apple compania de-a lungul anilor insa nu se stie daca nu cumva el ar fi hotarat ca aceste actiuni sa fie indeplinite dupa decesul sau. In final aflam ca 45 de miliarde de dolari vor fi cheltuiti in noul plan al companiei Apple pe parcursul a 3 ani de zile deci aproape jumatate din rezerva monetara a companiei va ajunge in buzunarele multor investitori.

  Planurile conducerii companiei Apple trebuie aprobate de catre consiliul director inainte de a fi puse in practica deci nu sunt inca gata de executie.

Subject to declaration by the Board of Directors, the Company plans to initiate a quarterly dividend of $2.65 per share sometime in the fourth quarter of its fiscal 2012, which begins on July 1, 2012.

“We have used some of our cash to make great investments in our business through increased research and development, acquisitions, new retail store openings, strategic prepayments and capital expenditures in our supply chain, and building out our infrastructure. You’ll see more of all of these in the future,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “Even with these investments, we can maintain a war chest for strategic opportunities and have plenty of cash to run our business. So we are going to initiate a dividend and share repurchase program.”

“Combining dividends, share repurchases, and cash used to net-share-settle vesting RSUs, we anticipate utilizing approximately $45 billion of domestic cash in the first three years of our programs,” said Peter Oppenheimer, Apple’s CFO. “We are extremely confident in our future and see tremendous opportunities ahead.”
