HTC Corp. Q3, 2013 Result: $101 Million Loss Despite Record Sales Of HTC One [REPORT]

Must Read

There seems to be no end of bad time for troubled Taiwanese mobile giant HTC Corp. (TPE:2498). An unaudited financial result of Q3, 2013 reveals that the company has recorded loss of $101.3 million on $1.6 billion revenue. This is the first time in the history when HTC has posted operating loss and even failed to reach close to breaking even.

Surprisingly, the disappointing performance continued despite strong sales of HTC One in Q3, 2013. In Q2, 2013 company’s total revenue reached to $2.35 billion with a net income of $42 million. A 35% Q-O-Q decline in revenues also attracted negative earning per share of $0.12.

HTC Corp. Financial Performance Q1 2011-Q3 2013

This is going to hurt company’s future expansion plans and after Microsoft-Nokia acquisition deal the going gets tough further for HTC. The company has tried his luck with Android and Windows Phone 8 both and, unfortunately, it failed to replicate success of Samsung with any of its devices. On the other hand, Apple focused approach to developing markets could open fuel up the competition and in a “Samsung-Android”, “Microsoft-Nokia” and “Apple-iOS” scenario, HTC is apparently looking left alone.
