Quanta & Compal achieve stellar sales in June
Jul 11, 2007
The world's two biggest suppliers of notebook PCs saw remarkable sales in June, with Quanta Computer Inc. recording new-high notebook PC shipment of 2.8 million units, and Compal Electronics Inc. scoring record monthly revenue of NT$36.285 billion, according to company sources.
Quanta posted sales revenues of NT$65.418 billion in June, up 38.3% from May and 69.2% from a year ago, and raked in aggregate revenues of NT$304.176 billion for the first half of this year, for a growth of 47.7% from a year earlier.
Not affected by a seasonal factor, Quanta even registered record monthly shipment of 2.8 million notebook PCs in June due mainly to Intel's Santa Rosa platforms that smoothly boosted the company's shipment, according to Quanta.
Noteworthy was that Quanta vowed to attain a shipment goal of seven million notebook PCs for the second quarter not long before surprisingly achieving the shipment of 7.4 million units. This makes the company's aggregate shipment amount to 13.6 million units for the first half of this year, 45.3% of the total projected shipment for the entire year.
Compal scored historical-high sales revenue of NT$36.285 billion in June, for a whopping growth of 61% from a year earlier and 17% from May. The company also posted aggregate revenues of NT$195.857 billion for the first half of this year, representing a growth of 63% from a year ago.
Besides, Compal posted second-highest monthly shipment of 1.78 million notebook PCs for June, and 5.1 million units for the second quarter of the year. The company saw its aggregate shipment for the first half of this year successfully broke 10 million units, and will mostly likely score shipment of 22 million units for the entire year, higher than original projection of 20 million units.
Institutional investors noted that with a boom starting July, and ample distribution channels and inventories, the top two notebook PC suppliers are expected to score better sales performance in the second half of this year.
