Resultados Financieros del Tercer Trimestre Fiscal 2012 por parte de RIM

En el día de ayer, RIM dio a conocer los resultados financieros de su tercer trimestre fiscal 2012, puntos a resaltar del comunicado:

  • Las ganancias fueron de $5.2 billones, aumentando un 24% en comparacion con el ultimo trimestre.
  • Los despachos de teléfonos inteligentes BlackBerry fueron de 14.1 millones, con un aumento del 33% respecto al trimestre previo y aproximadamente 150.000 Tabletas BlackBerry PlayBook
  • Los suscriptores aumentaron un 35% desde el año pasado, casi a un total de 75 millones.
  • Flujo de efectivo de operaciones de aproximadamente $ 895 millones.
  • Total de las inversiones en efectivo, equivalentes a corto plazo y largo plazo de $ 1.5 billones

  Comentarios obtenidos de la llamada en conferencia a los inversionistas dada por RIM: 


  • Los equipos BlackBerry 10 no saldrán al mercado sino hasta mediados – finales del 2012, siendo equipos equipos doble núcleo y soportaran tecnología LTE.
  • Los Co-CEOs de RIM Jim Balsillie y Mike Lazaridis se reducen el salario a 1$ / año

Realmente es preocupante la forma en que RIM y sus Co-CEOs están visualizando el futuro de la plataforma BlackBerry, de haber comentado que los nuevos equipos BlackBerry 10 estarían disponible para los primeros meses del 2012 a decir ahora que es para mediados – finales de ese año es mucho terreno que se sigue perdiendo con plataformas como iOS y Android. Para el supuesto lanzamiento de los equipos BlackBerry 10 tendremos disponible posiblemente un iPhone 5 y equipos Android que dupliquen, tripliquen o más en núcleos a estos BlackBerry.


Esto es lo que pasa cuando las personas se creen dioses y no toman en cuenta a la competencia, dejaron crecer a un par de monstruos que están acabando con su mercado y lamentablemente no tienen herramientas a corto plazo para dar pelea y podría ser demasiado tarde al tenerla.


En cuanto al salario de 1$, esto es algo que no es nuevo y realmente tendrá poco impacto en las finanzas de RIM… estas personas ganan mucho más dinero por bonos, dividendos y comisiones que por su salario base.




A continuación la nota de prensa en Ingles:

WATERLOO, ONTARIO–(Marketwire – Dec. 15, 2011) – Research In Motion Limited (RIM) (NASDAQ:RIMM)(TSX:RIM), a world leader in the mobile communications market, today reported third quarter results for the three months ended November 26, 2011 (all figures in U.S. dollars and U.S. GAAP, except where otherwise indicated).

Q3 Results: 

Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 was $5.2 billion, up 24% from $4.2 billion in the previous quarter and down 6% from $5.5 billion in the same quarter of last year.

During the quarter, RIM shipped approximately 14.1 million BlackBerry smartphones and approximately 150,000 BlackBerry PlayBook tablets. 

“Despite the challenges faced in the third quarter, the BlackBerry subscriber base grew to almost 75 million customers around the world. In addition, RIM launched a range of new BlackBerry 7 based smartphones globally and introduced holiday promotions that helped drive growth in the installed base of BlackBerry PlayBook users,” said Jim Balsillie and Mike Lazaridis, Co-CEOs at Research In Motion. “RIM continues to have strong technology, unique service capabilities and a large installed base of customers, and we are more determined than ever to capitalize on our strengths to overcome the recent execution challenges surrounding product launches and the resulting financial performance. As part of our commitment to improving our performance to better meet the expectations of shareholders and customers, we continue to evaluate ways to improve in several areas of the Company’s operations. It may take some time to realize the benefits of these efforts and the platform transition that we are undertaking, but we continue to believe that RIM has the right set of strengths and capabilities to maintain a leading role in the mobile communications industry.” 

The Company’s GAAP net income for the quarter was $265 million, or $0.51 per share diluted, compared with GAAP net income of $329 million, or $0.63 per share diluted, in the prior quarter and GAAP net income of $911 million, or $1.74 per share diluted, in the same quarter last year.
