For fiscal 2012, Qualcomm’s earnings rose to $6.11 billion, or $3.51 per share, from $4.26 billion, or $2.52. Revenue climbed 28% to $19.12 billion.

For the fiscal year, QWI’s loss before taxes was $15 million, compared with a pre-tax loss of $152 million in 2011.

Qualcomm, San Diego, said it projects total revenue in fiscal 2013 to be in the range of $23 billion to $24 billion, which would represent a year-over-year increase of 20% to26%.

The company said it expects earnings per share for next year to be between $3.40 and $3.60 per share.
