CD-R companies enjoy growing sales in April


"...Taiwan's CD-R companies enjoyed growing sales in April. CMC's share price has soared as a reaction to the encouraging news on May 8's session. Lead Data said that its April sales grew by 31.3 percent year-on-year to NT$261 million. Prodisc Technology posted a year-on-year growth of 13.89 percent for April sales of NT$483 million. Ritek and Gigastorage will publish their April finances today. Ritek estimated April sales at NT$1.75 billion, sustaining the continuous rise since the beginning of this year.

CMC said that CD-R would be priced at US$0.24 per piece in the second quarter, marking a notable rise from the first quarter's US$0.18. Separately, CMC has made its peace with Dutch giant Philips, while other CD-R companies are still in a deadlock in patent talks. Furthermore, CMC even has received the understanding from Philips to lower the charge from previously-contracted US$0.045 to US$0.035.

Ritek agreed to the better outlook for the CD-R industry by saying the CD-RW drive shipments have reached 80 million sets during recent three years, heralding a surging demand of 5 billion pieces of CD-Rs this year. Ritek has budgeted capital expenditures of NT$5.5 billion, of which 20 percent will account for CD-R production..."
