Chilisin Electronics has reported consolidated revenues of NT$7.71 billion (US$248.3 million) for the first half of 2019, up 4.5% on year. The passive component vendor is optimistic about its performance in the second half of this year, citing more favorable market conditions.
Chilisin indicated that the company has seen chip resistor demand pick up recently as inventory correction in the industry supply chain is near its end. Meanwhile, power inductor demand for automotive, AI and 5G applications continues to ramp up.
Chilisin disclosed June consolidated revenues of NT$1.34 billion, which consist of revenues generated from subsidiaries including Mag.Layers Scientific Technics, Magic Technology, Ralec Electronic and Ferroxcube.
Chilisin itself generated revenues of NT$503 million in June 2019, up 0.2% sequentially but about 11% from a year earlier, while subsidiary Mag.Layers saw its June revenues increase 2.5% on month and 1.5% on year 7.1% on year to NT$261 million.
