For the second quarter ended June 30, 2012, Nam Tai reported net income in the amount of US$9.4 million, or US$0.21 per diluted share (212.9% increase as compared to the same period of 2011, when company’s net income was US$3.0 million).
The BVI company informed about the factors that improved significantly the company’s results in the second quarter of 2012: the increase of sales by 62.8%, as a result of the company’s Wuxi manufacturing facility producing larger quantities of high-resolution LCD modules for tablets; the US$6.5 million in other income received by the company; discontinuance by the company of certain production orders that have had low sales and poor performance for the past years.
For the second half of 2012, the management of Nam Tai Electronics anticipates the smooth running of tablet LCM business and the commencement of the production of the smartphone LCM orders will cause further increases in sales and further improvement of company’s profit.
