Asus Expects Stronger Q4

By Tom Allen

Asus has predicted 10% QoQ sales growth in Q4, due to recovering demand.

CFO Nick Wu told an inventors’ conference that Q4 PC shipments are expected to reach 5.8 million, up from 5.3 million in Q3. Mobile product shipments will rise to 9 million units, from 7.1 million, and smartphones to 7 million from 5.5 million.

Asus does not expect its bottom line to be affected by foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations in Q4 as much as it was in Q3.
