Himax Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2010 Financial Results

Mr. Wu added, "Moving to our first quarter 2011 guidance, we expect revenues to remain flat or go up slightly, with our non-driver products to account for over 10% of the total sales, the first time in our history. However, we expect gross margin to decline within 1 percentage point. The decline in gross margin is primarily due to certain ramping-up expenses involved in non-driver products in their early stage of mass production. With further shipment ramp-up, we do expect non-driver products to contribute positively to our overall gross margin soon after this quarter. As mentioned earlier, R&D expenses are projected to increase from last quarter. Finally, our GAAP earnings per ADS is expected to be in the range of 1-2 cents."
