CUPERTINO, USA – Following its incredible success and popularity over recent years, Apple has become the world’s most valuable public company, and after yet another success in the last quarter of 2011, it is now worth over $400 billion.
To explain a little more about the money Apple has made, MBAonline hascompiled a list of facts that show just how big the Apple brand actually is, using an infographic:
For example, if every employee at Apple was given a share of its $400 billion wealth each would pick up around $6 622 516 in their wage packet. Also included is the fact that if Apple paid corporate tax on its huge $97.7 billion cash reserve there would be enough money to buy everyone on Greece and Canada an iPad, although two thirds of its cash reserves are held in offshore accounts.
One of the most interesting facts is that over the last three months, Apple made four times more profit than the largest retailer in the world, Walmart, with Apple making $13.1 billion profit from revenue of $46.33 billion compared to Walmart’s $3.3 billion profit from revenue of $109.5 billion.
