"We remain pleased with our results year-long and certainly with performance to our guidance in the third quarter," stated Mr. Jordan Wu, President and Chief Executive Officer of Himax. "We have been able to sustain double-digit growth in our small and medium-sized driver and non-driver IC businesses year-over-year while steadily maintaining our large panel driver IC market share, though this market has been weak reflecting the continued slump of global demand. The diversification of our customer base and development of new products have both improved our product mix and increased our gross margins. As we go through the fourth quarter and into the next year, we expect these trends to continue."
