Jordan Wu, President and Chief Executive Officer of Himax, commented, "2010 was a year full of both challenges and excitement. While we lost share in large panel drivers, we also gained a lot of ground in small and medium size panels. Also, we picked up strong momentum in 2010 across all of our non-driver businesses, which we have cultivated for a long time. We believe the strong momentum will continue into this year and beyond."Mr. Wu continued, "Our revenues totaled $642.7 million in 2010, representing a 7.2% decline year-over-year. The decline was caused by the 25.7% year over year reduction of large-panel drivers, which represented 57.0% of 2010 revenue, as compared to 71.3% in 2009. We don't expect further loss of market share for large-sized drivers with our existing major customers for this year. Moreover, we are confident that we will gain share in China where there are aggressive panel capacity expansion plans offering attractive new driver business opportunities in the near term, especially in the large panel segment.
