“As expected, the market remained challenging in Asia for LED chips and components. The China market is not improving due to inflationary and monetary issues together with depressed economic conditions around the world. We continue to see pricing pressure due to the weak demand in the China outdoor street lighting market, together with the overcapacity of backlight that has spilled over to the general lighting market. The ASP erosion is not as extreme as in prior quarters and prices have stabilized somewhat,” said Trung Doan, Chairman and CEO of SemiLEDs. “With so much uncertainty, we remain cautious in our near term outlook but continue to believe in the industry’s long term market opportunities. When the Chinese government releases funds for the five year plan, we expect to benefit given that we are one of the few companies that meets the program’s requirements and that we have local presence with our JV, China SemiLEDs,” continued Doan.
