Epistar reported February revenues of NT$1.185 billion (US$40 million), up 20.91% on month but down 12.92% on year. Epistar noted that February had more working days compared to January which helped increase revenues. Furthermore, demand for large-size backlight modules has been increasing. Epistar predicts demand in March to exceed February and capacity utilization rates to increase to 80-90%.

Formosa Epitaxy announced February revenues of NT$321 million, an increase of 18% on month but decrease of 8.5% on year. Accumulated revenues for January-February were NT$593 million, down 15.9% on year. Formosa Epitaxy noted that demand from TV makers has been increasing and orders have been steady. The firm believes LED lighting will show growth in March-April. Capacity utilization rate has returned to 90%, said Formosa Epitaxy, hence first-quarter 2012 revenues are likely to outperform fourth-quarter 2011.
