Taiwanese NB PC Makers Record Rosy Sales and Shipments in September

With simmering demand in the global market for notebook PCs, Taiwan's major notebook PC manufacturers enjoyed banner sales and shipments in September, more or less reducing investors' worries about slowing recovery in the second half of this year.

As its notebook PC shipment hit a single-month high of five million units in September, Quanta Computer Inc. saw its combined revenue for the month surge 11.9% from August to hit NT$96.699 billion, which, in turn, soared 32.8% from a year earlier.

Quanta raked in combined revenues of NT$269.3 billion on total shipments of over 13 million notebook PCs in the third quarter of the year as the No. 1 supplier in the line by revenue and shipment. The firm's combined revenue for the past nine months of the year reached a high of NT$805.456 billion, sharply surging 54.53% from the same period of 2009.

In the meantime, Compal Electronics Inc. raked in NT$80.217 billion in combined revenue for September, 22% higher than August, and delivered 4.6 million notebook PCs, with both the figures hitting single-month highs.

The firm's aggregate combined revenue for the first nine months of 2010 significantly grew 56.32% year-on-year to NT$644.174 billion, including NT$205.6 billion scored in the third quarter. In addition, Compal's shipment of notebook PCs reached 36.4 million units in the January-September period, 1.3 million units less than Quanta's corresponding figure of 37.7 million units.

Shipping 2.6 million notebook PCs, 550,000 LCD TVs, 950,000 desktops, and 140,000 servers, Wistron Corp. garnered combined revenue of NT$62.068 billion in September, growing 21.8% from August and pushing up its combined revenue for the first nine months of the year to NT$454.412 billion, up 17.67% from a year earlier.

Coincidentally, Pegatron Corp. saw its September combined revenue and notebook PC shipment increase 4.6% and 14.4% month-on-month to NT$39.93 billion and 1.4-1.5 million units, respectively. The firm has also shipped around 11.5 million notebook PCs and earned NT$110.5 billion in aggregate combined revenue for the first nine months of this year.

In a sharp contrast to its Taiwanese peers, Inventec Corp., however, suffered slight declines in sales and notebook PC shipment in September. The firm posted combined revenue of NT$27.585 billion for September, down 4.66% from August, and shipped 100,000 units less than August.
