HTC Corp (宏達電) yesterday said it is to sell a plot of land and a building in Taoyuan to Inventec Corp (英業達) for NT$6.06 billion (US$183.46 million) as part of its efforts to lower operational costs and boost efficiency.
The local smartphone maker said the production facilities and its employees would be transferred to HTC’s three other properties in Taoyuan to centralize its production facilities.
“The sale of the land and building will not affect HTC’s production capacity or shipping schedules,” an HTC investor relations officer said by telephone.
The officer said the transaction also has no implications for HTC’s operations or headcount. [FULL STORY]
