The Taiwan-based company, Foxconn Technology Co. Ltd. (symbol: 2354), recently announced its December revenue, which reached NT$460.13 billion ($14.84 billion). This reflects a decrease of 29.2% compared to November and a decline of 26.9% when compared to the same period last year.

Weakness in Certain Products Offsets Growth in Others

Foxconn attributes the decline in revenue to the weak performance of its computing products and smart consumer electronics in December. However, they were able to offset some of this weakness with growth in their cloud and networking products, components, and other product lines. Despite the absence of FactSet consensus estimates, the company expressed that their December revenue surpassed expectations.
