Ritek, CMC Magnetics report high June revenues


"...Both Ritek Corp. and CMC Magnetics Corp. estimate their June revenues will reach their highest levels since the start of this year. The two companies combined account for around 60 percent of global compact disc supplies. Ritek estimates its June revenue to top at least NT$2.05 billion (US$60.29 million at US$1 = NT$34), while CMC estimates its June revenue to be more than NT$1.6 billion (US$47.05 million).

CMC executives point out that the company's net margin of CD-R sales should rebound back to 40 percent in the fourth quarter, after falling last year. They say the company has equipped itself with an enterprise resource planning system in order to enhance corporate competitiveness. The company predicts that it will earn NT$1.77 per share this year, compared with Ritek's NT$3..."
