Apple, Inc. honcho and tech mogul Steve Jobs received a liver transplant two months ago, and is said to be in excellent condition.

Reports Saturday said Jobs underwent the invasive procedure in a Tennessee hospital, and is planning on resuming his daily operations post at the gadget kind come late June.

"Steve continues to look forward to returning to Apple at the end of June and there is nothing further to say," Apple spokesman Steve Dowling said, declining to confirm the surgery.

Jobs revealed in 2004 that he had suffered and recovered from pancreatic cancer. The Associated Press spoke with a transplantation expert who speculated that often the liver is a common successor to the pancreas in harboring cancerous cells.
