(5/12/2016 Taipei News) LSC (TWSE:5305) held its board meeting today and approved the 1st quarter consolidated financial report, EPS amounted to NTD0.07. The 1st quarter sales was NTD2,348 Million, approximately 8% increased on a YoY basis. Operating income improved 8 folds on a YoY basis which could be attributed to a better product sales mix, a lower SGA and manufacturing cost down derived from improved automation.
Our four product groups experienced a growth in sales, gross profit and operating profit on a YoY basis. Even the 6 inch foundry and Modular system were profitable in the usually weak 1st quarter due to a better cost control and due to the penetration to the more profitable new ticketing application. The only setback was the 1st quarter loss from Diodes Inc. due to its inventory write off etc which resulted in a 93% decline YoY in our company's 1st quarter other income.
