Compal blames 18 percent sales drop on Intel

Posted on Saturday, March 12 2011 @ 12:40:11 CET by

Compal saw its February 2010 laptop shipments decline by 18 percent to 2.7 million units. The drop is blamed on Intel's chipset woes by Compal CEO Ray Chen, but the company's LCD TV division is also down by 18 percent.
Now, with the announcement of February 2011 shipments, the bad news is being delivered by the ton. In a market that’s preparing to explode in iPad purchases, Compal has posted just 2.7 million unit shipments, down 18%.

The manufacturing giant also makes LCD TVs and that division was also down 18%.

For a small company, that kind of drop might be acceptable, but when you have over 30,000 employees – it must put a strain on the finances. The worst thing for a production company is a huge change in the number of units needed. It can easily put jobs at risk.

So, what does Compal blame for this downturn?

Interestingly, CEO Ray Chen blames Intel.
