Taipei, Feb. 11 (CNA) Nanya Technology Corp., the dynamic random access memory (DRAM) chip production arm of Formosa Plastics Group, said Monday that sales in January fell to a 19-month low, a reflection of falling product prices.
In a statement, Nanya Technology said its consolidated sales for January fell 11.82 percent from a month earlier to NT$4.26 billion (US$138 million), the lowest since June 2017, when revenue stood at NT$4.19 billion.
The January figure was also down 30.73 percent from a year earlier, data compiled by Nanya Technology showed.
The DRAM maker said while shipments rose 4-6 percent from a month earlier in January, product prices fell 14-16 percent month-on-month, pushing down the sales value.
