The company's IT product revenue, which came in at NT$53.3 billion, down year on year from NT$68.9 billion, was affected by a reduction in revenue contribution from America, but this was offset by the increase in IT product revenue from Asia Pacific and EMEA.

The company also indicated it was still recovering from the operating income loss of NT$704 million reported in 3Q15. This quarter operating income came in at NT$866 million.
