Economists predict that sometime between August 16, 2013 and April 9, 2015, Apple will become the world's first trillion-dollar company. Hitting the trillion-dollar mark is obviously a groundbreaking achievement for the tech giant and this infographic explains the ins and outs of Apple's finances.

As of August 2012, Apple shares were valued at $665.15. This figure helped Apple set a new world record with a market capitalization of $624 billion. This figure is simply a calculation of the share price multiplied by the number of shares available.
