VIA's January sales up 92%

Doesn't mean it's bucking the industry trend

VIA sold NT$3.08 billion ($99.6 million) worth of chip and chipset designs last month - nearly double the sales it achieved in January 2000.

Back then, the company notched up sales of NT$1.61 billion ($52.06 million). That makes for growth of 91.36 per cent.

The latest figures represent a month-on-month gain of a little over 33 per cent on December's sales. That month, VIA recorded sales of NT$2.32 billion ($75.95 million).

January's sales suggests VIA might be weathering the end-of-year inventory glut and entering 2001 on a high note, "despite overall slowdown of the PC market", as the company puts it. This is particularly important given the glum predictions the rest of the industry is making for the Q1 2001 and the year as a whole.

VIA is going to have to pull some very good numbers out of the hat over the coming months if it's to show that it really is bucking the trend. ®
