TAINAN, Taiwan, Oct. 1, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Himax Technologies, Inc. ("Himax" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:HIMX) today announced that Chief Financial Officer ("CFO") Max Chan has resigned from his position, effective immediately, to pursue a career opportunity with a private bio-tech company. The Board of Directors has begun the process of searching for a replacement CFO.

The Board of Directors has appointed Finance and Accounting Manager Jessica Pan as Acting CFO until further notice. Jessica Pan will assume the responsibilities of CFO in addition to her existing duties as Finance and Accounting Manager.

Jordan Wu, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, said, "Jessica has been with us since February 2006 and has more than 12 years relevant experience. She has been in charge of Himax's accounting and financial operations and has been playing an integral role in our internal control over financial reporting. Jessica has also worked closely with Max. With her extensive background in finance and accounting, I am very confident that Jessica is capable in the interim position, helping us make a seamless transition until we identify a suitable replacement."

Mr. Wu continued, "We really appreciate Max's contribution to Himax. He joined us in June 2004 and has been our CFO since October 2005. Over the past years, he led the team to enhance the standard of our financial control, procedures and reporting and also successfully accomplished several important investment and financial projects for Himax, including our initial public offering on the NASDAQ. We truly wish him the best in his future endeavors."

Prior to joining Himax, Jessica worked as Assistant Finance Manager for Advanced Semiconductor Engineering, Inc. from 2002 to 2006 and as an auditor for T N Soong & Co, now a member firm of Deloitte Touche Tohmastu, from 1998 to 2001.
