Chia-Chau Wu, chairman of Nanya Technology, said that DRAM prices has dropped from 4Q18 to 1Q19. Due to oversupplied market conditions, the company has reallocated some capacity for 10nm technology R&D. DRAM price dropped more than 10% QoQ. And, affected by the US-China trade war in 2Q19, the prices continued to fall. The company’s revenue/earnings was unsatisfactory.
Regarding US ban on Huawei, Wu told that the company will continue to supply each customer within the limits permitted by law and continue to disperse its dependence on a single customer. The shipment to Huawei accounts for about 3% of total revenue. Wu said that risk control is relatively easy when the percentage is 3-5%. US ban on Huawei is expected to have limited impact on the company's revenue/earnings.
