In the seminar held late last week, the TWSE, which operates the local main board, invited representatives from three Taiwanese electronic component firms to brief institutional investors on their financial conditions and business outlooks.
The three companies were G-Shank Enterprise Co. (鉅祥), I-Sheng Electric Wire and Cable Co. (鎰勝) and King Core Electronics Inc. (鈞寶), the exchange said.
G-Shank Chairman Lin Yu-huang (林於晃), I-Sheng Chairman T.C. Huang (黃子成) and King Core President Chen Cheng-han (陳震漢) led their management teams to meet with the participating institutional investors and received a warm reception from them, the TWSE said.
Also in the seminar, Chung Chun-yuan (鍾俊元), deputy director of the Industrial Technology Research Institute's Industrial Economics and Knowledge Center (IEK, 工研院產業經濟與趨勢研究中心) gave a speech in which he talked about five of Taiwan's important electronic parts segments -- displays, sensors, connectors, camera lens modules and circuit boards -- to allow these potential investors to have a better understanding about Taiwan's industrial strength.
The TWSE said that Chung's insightful analysis on Taiwan's electronics component industry gave a broad picture about the industry's supply chain as well as possible challenges and business opportunities ahead.
The seminar was the third and last in a series of conferences initiated by the TWSE as part of the exchange's efforts to help investors have a better sense about the individual industries in Taiwan and the fundamentals of the local capital market.
In the first seminar held in August, the state of Taiwan's electrical engineering and machinery industry and its prospects were featured with the presence of representatives from Yungtay Engineering Co. (永大機電), Allis Electric Co. (亞力電機) and Awea Mechantronic Co. (亞崴機電).
In the second seminar, also held in August, representatives from Sunko Ink Co. (三晃), Headway Advanced Materials Inc. (展宇) and Tex Year Industries Inc. (德淵) allowed institutional investors to learn more about the climate of the local chemical industry.
The TWSE said that the positive responses from institutional investors in the three seminars were encouraging, so the exchange will continue its efforts to hold similar meetings in the future in a bid to boost transparency of listed companies in Taiwan and attract more institutional investors.
