Hon Hai Precision Industry Co (鴻海精密) chairman Terry Gou (郭台銘) yesterday
mapped out the company’s corporate transformation plan, with an initial focus on developing industrial Internet-focused technologies and then growing Internet-based “smart” healthcare and security solutions.
“The public continues to see Hon Hai as a contract electronics maker… We are transforming from a traditional hardware manufacturing firm into a company that provides platforms and solutions,” Gou told a provisional shareholders’ meeting at the company’s headquarters in New Taipei City’s Tucheng District (土城).
Shareholders approved Hon Hai’s proposal to seek an initial public offering (IPO) for its newly established subsidiary, Foxconn Industrial Internet Co Ltd (FII, 富士康工業互聯網), on the Shanghai Stock Exchange. [FULL STORY]
