Apple CEO Steve Jobs' other company, Pixar, is set to announce its first-quarter financial results later today.

Last year was a good year for the company – it quadrupled its fourth-quarter earnings with a net income of $84 million, compared to $17 million in the same quarter last year. Box-office smash Finding Nemo was credited for the success – Pixar's fifth movie became the biggest-selling animated movie ever, earning $792 million in global box office sales.

The fourth-quarter results were announced in a conference call with analysts back in February. During the call Jobs spoke of Pixar's decision to stop working with Disney. Jobs said: "Disney is weak creatively and unwilling to compromise."

Today's announcement will happen at 5pm Eastern time (10pm in the UK).
