Aug. 10, 2009 (China Knowledge) - Taiwan-based Chunghwa Picture Tubes Ltd on Thursday announced that it recorded NT$9.86 billion in after-tax loss in the second quarter of this year, with loss per share standing at NT$1.04, compared with NT$11.2 billion it recorded in after-tax loss in the first quarter.

The business performance in the second half will improve, said Chunghwa Picture President Kay Chiu, adding that the peak season in the third quarter along with the product portfolio adjustment will lead to positive business results in terms of shipment and revenue.
