AT&S Increases Guidance for the Financial Year 2018/19

Reading time ( words)

Based on the business development in the first quarter of the current year, the positive outlook for the coming months and taking into account seasonal effects in the fourth quarter of the current financial year 2018/19, the management has increased the forecast for revenue and earnings.

The very good business development is essentially attributable to higher revenue from the plants in Chongqing, which were in part still in the start-up phase in the previous year, as well as to measures to improve efficiency and productivity. In addition, the superior product portfolio for IC substrates (for example server applications) contributes to the increase in earnings.

As a result, AT&S now has the following expectations for the financial year 2018/19: based on stable exchange rates, the management expects revenue growth of 6 to 8% (previously up to 6%) and an EBITDA margin in the range of 24 to 26% (previously up to 23%) for the financial year 2018/19.

While there are many Chinese companies now selling in the United States, I wanted to find one in Taiwan that is penetrating the U.S. market. I was delighted to come across EISO Enterprise Co. Ltd., a printed circuit board fabricator located in Taiwan. I know that the American companies are usually looking for PCB global partners in countries other than China, which made my conversation with Gary (Jung Kun) Chien all the more interesting, especially when he shared his thoughts on the U.S-China trade wars.

Here’s what I learned.

Happy Holden Reflects on Successful IPC APEX EXPO 2022

03/09/2022 | Happy Holden, I-Connect007
The attendance at this year’s IPC APEX EXPO seemed higher than I expected, so thank you all for making the necessary arrangements to attend. However, we sorely missed many of our foreign contributors and friends. One of my cherished reunions was with Pete Starkey, who fought through the red tape of government restrictions to make his way from England for the show. Both of us were able to help conduct interviews with many of the industry’s business and technical leaders. For that, I am grateful.
