Uniflex Expects to Break Even in 4Q19


Reading time ( words)

Flexible PCB specialist Uniflex Technology is looking to break even in the fourth quarter of 2019, according to CEO Yuan-chih Lee, who also disclosed plans to downsize its capital to unload the company's accumulated losses in the last three years.

Because of the US-China trade tensions, brand vendors' sharply decreased demand for flat panels significantly impacted Uniflex's May and June revenues. However, clients already resumed their order pull-in beginning July and their shipments for handsets and notebooks are expected to stabilize in the third quarter compared to the second, said Lee. As clients' new products will enter mass production and the company's automated production lines have helped reduce labor costs, Uniflex expects to achieve a break-even operation in the fourth quarter.
