AUO, Innolux expected to see 10% increase in revenues during 2Q14, says report
Taiwan-based panel makers AU Optronics (AUO) and Innolux are likely to see at least 10% increases in revenues during the second quarter of 2014, according to a new report from ETtoday.
Notebook and Ulra HD TV panels have been in short supply, which pushed up their pricing during the second quarter. Monitor panel pricing also increased and smartphone in addition to tablet panels sized 7-inch remained flat. All of these factors are expected to help improve the companies’ performances during the second quarter, the report said.
Additionally, the average size for TV and monitor panels shipped during the second quarter increased. Overall panel surface in the large-size panel segment shipped in 2014 is expected to increase 8% on year due to this trend, which will also help AUO’s and Innolux’s performances, the report added.
By Faith Hung and Joyce Lee TAIPEI (Reuters) - Hon Hai Precision, the world’s biggest electronics component maker, said on Monday it had bought a 4.9 percent stake in South Korean IT services firm SK C&C for 381 billion won ($376.59 million). The move marks Hon Hai’s second merger in less than two months as part of a broader effort to diversify away from the contract manufacturing business. Hon Hai, the major supplier of iPhones and iPads, paid 155,500 won per share for the stake, which was for “long-term investment”, according to a company statement. SK C&C said in a separate regulatory filing that Chey Tae-won, the chairman of SK Holdings and biggest shareholder of SK C&C, was the seller.
