Apacer's EPS Hits New Record High Since IPO by Adding Value to Three Major Operating Aspects

Apacer Technology (8271), the world's leading digital storage brand, today announced its latest quarterly revenue figures, with a single-quarter EPS of NTD 1.68, the best performing quarter since its IPO, and a cumulative EPS of NTD 2.91 in the first half of the year, also hitting the highest record. With 19% gross margin, 9% operating margin, and 7% net margin in Q2, the quarter’s performance Apacer’s best in the past three years. President C. K. Chang stated that although this year partly benefited from the gradual recovery of demand and price increases, Apacer announced at the start of the year that they would enhance three major operating aspects (emphasis on focus fields, deployment of future technologies and digital transitions of business operations), which were also reflected in the promising financial report.

President Chia-Kun Chang mentioned that during the past period, Apacer's digital transformation of operations has been complete by digitally integrating data to improve delivery time, productivity, and quality from customer orders to shipments. The flexibility and speed of services can meet the demands of customers for customized products. Highly customizable products, such as servers, electric vehicle charging stations, and smart medical services, are key areas for business development this year and will be the mainstream market focus in the coming years. In addition, Apacer continues to launch new products combining various applications such as 5G and IoT, but also develops patented innovative technologies, such as CoreSnapshot and Signed Firmware, which demonstrate that Apacer as a supplier that not only provides customers with memory module products, but also can be a value-creating service partner.

Apart from the operational aspects, President Chang indicated that during the COVID pandemic, the first priority is to stabilize the morale of all employees and provide necessary assistance, such as adding vaccine insurance and providing everyone with pandemic masks. President Chang also chose to hold an Apacer Thank You Day on the first day when all employees returned to office and distributed snacks and greeted everyone at the entrance early in the morning. Apacer's head office is located in Tucheng, an area with a large population of elderly people; thus Apacer joined hands with the Huashan Social Welfare Foundation Tucheng Branch to donate materials and masks to elderly people in need. As for Apacer's operation in the future, President Chang believes that short-term shortage of materials is still the main market variable, so Apacer will also implement early response strategies. Under the condition of maintaining flexible adjustment in supply and demand, and with the support of the three major operating aspects, Apacer expects to deliver a satisfactory performance this year.
