Apple Delays Earnings Report by a Day for Campbell Memorialby
Apple Inc. delayed its second-quarter earnings report by one day to April 26, rescheduling so employees can attend the April 25 memorial service for former director Bill Campbell.
“Apple’s second-quarter earnings announcement has been rescheduled to Tuesday, April 26, out of respect for the friends and family of Bill Campbell,” the company said in a statement. “Apple executives and employees will be attending the service to remember Bill and his many years of friendship and service to the Apple community."
Campbell died Monday at age 75 after a battle with cancer. He worked as a marketing executive at Apple in the 1980s, and was a close friend of co-founder Steve Jobs and an adviser to current Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook. Campbell served on the Apple board from 1997 to 2014.
