Quanta Computer Inc (廣達), the world’s largest contract notebook computer maker, has revised upward its shipment guidance for this quarter, after seeing stronger-than-expected shipments last month.
“We previously estimated that this quarter’s notebook shipments would grow about 10 percent from last quarter’s [8.4 million units]. Now we think shipments are likely to grow 20 percent quarter-on-quarter,” a Quanta investor relations official said by telephone on Wednesday.
The notebook computer business accounted for about 50 percent of Quanta’s total revenue last quarter, while other products such as cloud servers, all-in-one PCs, tablets and wearable devices accounted for the other 50 percent.
The official said notebook shipments jumped 27.58 percent to 3.7 million units last month from a month earlier. [FULL STORY]
