Apple announced on Wednesday that it is delaying its earnings results in order to accommodate a memorial for Silicon Valley's beloved Bill Campbell.
Apple had planned to release results on Monday, April 25. But the Silicon Valley giant's investor relations site said that the company will now release results a day later "out of respect for the friends and family of Bill Campbell, whose memorial service will be held Monday."
Campbell passed away earlier this week after years of battling cancer. He was 75 years old. After his passing, Apple created a memorial page in honor of Campbell.
"Bill Campbell was a coach and mentor to many of us at Apple, and a member of our family for decades as an executive, advisor, and ultimately a member of our board," the company said on its website.
"He believed in Apple when few people did and his contributions to our company, through good times and bad, cannot be overstated. We will miss his wisdom, his friendship, his humor, and his love for life."
