Taiwanese PCB makers post solid profits in 1st half of 2009

As rebounding demand for notebook PCs and LCD (liquid crystal display) TVs strongly worldwide has driven Taiwanese PCB (printed circuit board) makers to rev up production, they have effectively fueled their profits for the first half of this year since the second quarter.

Enjoying a 147% surge in profits in the second quarter, Tripod Technology Corp., for instance, effectively scored net profits of NT$842 million (US$25.51 million at US$1: NT$33), or NT$1.8 (US$0.0545) per share, for the first half of this year as the most profitable in the line. With seasonal booms hitting the industry, the company is expected to further drive up its profits in the third quarter.

In the meantime, HannStar Board International Holdings Ltd. also posted shining net profits of NT$425 million (US$12.878 million) or NT$1.1 (US$0.033) per share for the first half of the year, thanks to its second-quarter net profit sharply soaring by 9.4 folds from the first quarter.

The firm is going to challenge combined revenue of NT$20 billion (US$606.06 million) for entire the year, including NT$11.4 billion (US$345.45 million) to be realized in the second half of the year, and EPS (earnings per share) of NT$2.6. Worth mentioning is that the firm estimates its total capital spending to reach NT$10-12 billion (US$303-363 million) this year, in efforts to boost its output to aim for a 45% share of the market for PCBs for notebook PCs in the year.

APCB Inc. also scored an amazing quarterly growth of 816% in its second-quarter profits and hence effectively pushed up its net profits for the first half to NT$244 million (US$7.39 million), or NT$1.77 (US$0.0536) per share, only next to Tripod in terms of EPS in the line.
