TAIPEI, Taiwan - According to sources, Unimicron Technology anticipates improved revenues in the thrid and firth quarters of 2007 as it adjusts product mix to increase high-end shipments.
Chairman Tzeng Tze-chang, at a recent investor conference said that 2006 was a year of extraordinary growth for the PCB industry and Unimicron is unlikely to see a repeat of 2006 performance in 2007. The chairman remains optimistic about 2007, saying Unimicron's growth will return to pre-2006 levels.
The company continues developing high-end products, including handset-use high-density interconnect (HDI) boards, and chip-scale package (CSP) substrates, Tzeng said. The chairman said the high-end product lines are helping improve the company's margins, which he predicts may hit a record in 2008.
