Taipei, March 4 (CNA) HTC Corp. (宏達電) on Friday reported February sales
of NT$4.2 billion, the lowest for the Taiwanese smartphone maker for any month in nearly 11 years.
Hurt by the lack of an attention-grabbing smartphone model and fewer working days in February due to the long Lunar New Year holiday, sales during the month were down 35 percent from NT$6.48 billion in January and also down nearly 54.5 percent year-on-year.
The company’s NT$10.68 billion in consolidated revenue for the first two months of the year was down 50.3 percent from the same period last year. [FULL STORY]
