    Who's Who in Asia Pacific

    On July 24, Peter Oppenheimer announced during Apple's CC:

    <. . . We are pleased to launch the iTunes Store in 12 countries including Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan last month. . . .>

    And on August 6, as Richard noted that day, Akamai announced it had expanded its presence in the Asia Pacific region.

    Apple certainly isn't Akamai's only customer in the Asia Pacific region. But it's a very big customer. Is Akamai's recent expansion coincidence?

    • Apple is a great customer for Akamai. They are a well run business with great leadership and research as is Akamai. It is great that they have formed such a wonderful partnership. .
      Apple as noted in Sec filings is less than 10 % of Akamais revenues.

        >>Apple is a great customer for Akamai. They are a well run business with great leadership and research as is Akamai. It is great that they have formed such a wonderful partnership. .<<

        As you probably remember, Apple and Akamai's partnership goes back at least to when Apple became a major investor in Akamai. Today, at this point in their history's interwoven paths, their partnership is symbiotic.

        >>Apple as noted in Sec filings is less than 10 % of Akamais revenues.<<

        So THERE are the CC unmentionables! Bring that list into the LIGHT!!

        <Our customer base primarily consists of enterprises. As of December 31, 2011, our customers included many of the world’s leading corporations, including Adobe, Apple, Audi, Best Buy, EMC, Hitachi, Home Depot, L’Oreal, Microsoft, MTV Networks, the National Football League, Philips, Qantas, SAP Standard Chartered Bank and Victoria’s Secret. We also actively sell to government agencies. As of December 31, 2011, our public sector customers included the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Census Bureau, the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Department of Labor. No customer accounted for 10% or more of total revenues for any of the years ended December 31, 2011, 2010 or 2009. Less than 10% of our total revenues in each of the years ended December 31, 2011, 2010 and 2009 were derived from contracts or subcontracts terminable at the election of the federal government, and we do not expect such contracts to account for more than 10% of our total revenues in 2012.>
