TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Taiwanese contract electronics maker Foxconn on Monday (Feb. 6) released its January consolidated revenue numbers.
Unaudited consolidated revenue for January was NT$522.1 billion (US$16.66 billion), which was up 13.48% compared to a month earlier, but down 20.93% year-over-year, the company said. Foxconn added that it was the second-highest revenue for the same period, with January 2023 being the highest at NT$660.4 billion.
Foxconn said its smart consumer electronics delivered strong growth in January due to strong customer pull-in month-over-month, while computing products had significant growth on the back of customer pull-in demand.
January's growth in cloud products was offset by weakening demand for its networking products, resulting in flattish performance month-over-month. Meanwhile, revenue for components and other products declined from the previous month.
