Himax CIS Sales Slightly Down QoQ

Himax announced its Q3 2011 results. Jordan Wu, the CEO, says regarding the CIS business status: "CMOS image sensor sales, which accounts for a significant portion of our non-driver sales, declined slightly in the third quarter. Laptops have been the largest revenue contributor to our CMOS image sensor products over the past quarters. However, the laptop market is facing headwinds with overbuilt inventory as well as competition from tablets which reduced customers’ orders for CMOS image sensors in the short term. In the longer term, we expect the market to stabilize and we plan to release our high-resolution sensors for handsets next year to diversify our product portfolio and capture the tremendous growth potential in this market."
