On July 13, BOE Technology Group Co., Ltd. (BOE) released its 2021 semi-annual performance forecast. According to the announcement, the basic earnings per share are expected to be about CNY 0.355 to CNY 0.361, 13 times higher than that of CNY 0.026 apiece in the same period of 2020.
The announcement shows that BOE's good performance is attributed to the global semiconductor display industry's prosperity, with stronger demand and rising prices caused by the shortage of raw materials. Meanwhile, the company's mature production lines will maximize production and sales, maintaining a leading position in the LCD mainstream application market, improving profitability and the product mix.
According to BOE's 2020 financial report, the annual revenue was CNY 135.55 bn, with an increase of 16.80% year-on-year; the net profit was CNY 5.04 bn, reporting a growth of 162.46%. Furthermore, the company achieved a net operating cash flow of about CNY 39.25 bn, with cash on hand of approximately CNY 73.69 bn. During the same period, BOE's overall display shipments ranked first globally, including five major application fields such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, monitors and TVs.
In addition, based on the forecast data of Sigmaintell, the firm will still rank first in the world in terms of display shipments in the five application areas of smartphones, tablets, laptops, monitors and TVs. And the market share of automotive display panels over 8 inches will also continue to remain the world's first.
Omdia, a technology research firm, predicted that BOE, TCL CSOT and HKC would become the top three global panel production capacities, accounting for 25.3%, 17.2% and 10.3% respectively.
