This week, tech giant Apple filed its 10-K report with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and Mashable uncovered a key tidbit about the company’s growth: it added some 12,400 full-time workers during the 2012 fiscal year. This is no doubt partially due to the 33 retail stores Apple added over the same period; today, over 42,000 employees work at Apple stores.
Net sales at Apple were $156 billion this fiscal year, largely bolstered by the 58.3 million iPads and 125 million iPhones sold. That net sales figure represents a 45 percent growth over last year. Gross profit margin also grew, from 40.5 percent in the 2011 fiscal year to 43.9 percent this year.
