Compared to February, Foxconn’s revenues from PC product had the strongest growth in March, followed by those from cloud computing devices, components and consumer electronics. On a yearly basis, revenues from consumer electronics had the best performance, followed by PC products, cloud computing devices and components.
Previously, chairman Young-Way Liu said he expected a sequential decline of over 15% for the quarter but a year over year increase of over 15%. While Liu is optimistic about 2021, potential impact from the coronavirus pandemic such as component shortfalls could affect the industry’s overall performance. He expects the shortages to have a less than 10% impact on the company’s operations, though it’s unlikely to ease until next year.
