Consolidated sales and earnings per share of third-quarter reached at recent 8 quarters and 7 quarters high, respectively, attributed to the synergy of post KEMET merger, gradual improvement in production and capacity utilization, and stable demands from end customers. Furthermore, Yageo’s revenues and product portfolios have been undergone structural changes, starting from the third-quarter of 2020. Foreseeing the multiple demand increase for customized high-end specialty products from future technologies, this eventually will maximize the company's value in high-end automotive, industrial, medical, aerospace, and 5G/IoT segments, and help deliver stable revenue and profitability growth in the future.
Meanwhile, the global COVID-19 pandemic has not eased and the uncertainty of international trade dispute remains high, Yageo has gradually increased and maintained higher capacity utilization rate for both MLCCs and chip resistors, while running full-capacity for Tantalum capacitors, to meet the steadily increasing market demands. But consequently it could not significantly increase the finished goods inventory level and the inventory turnover days is still expected to stay low.
