PCB Maker HannStar Board Conservative About 2H19

Reading time ( words)

PCB manufacturer HannStar Board, after enjoying a significant increase in orders with short lead time in the second quarter of 2019, has turned conservative about orders for the second half of the year, despite it being the traditional peak season, according to Digitimes.

Company chairman YH Chiao said that many downstream clients did advance pulling in shipments before the US enforced 25% tariffs on Chinese imports on May 10, and their shipment demand is likely to slow down in the third quarter. But Chiao is optimistic about the overall gross margins for the whole 2019, citing the firm's effective cost control, gains from foreign exchanges, and price falls for raw materials.
