HTC reports first quarter 2015 earnings; "robust" sales lead to its best U.S. quarter since 2011

HTC reports first quarter 2015 earnings;
HTC reported its first quarter earnings on Tuesday and the company continues to be on the recovery path. In the U.S., the first quarter of 2015 was the best three month period that HTC has experienced in the country since 2011. HTC characterizes sales in the U.S. as being robust. The HTC One and HTC Desire are leading the way in Europe and Asia and market share gains have come in Taiwan.

For the first quarter, which ended on March 31st 2015, HTC reported revenue of $1.36 billion USD up 25% year-over-year. Net profit came in at $11.8 million USD or 1.4 cents a share.

For the current quarter which ends in June, HTC expects to report sales of $1.5 billion USD to $1.68 billion USD. Gross margins are expected to increase from the 19.7% reported for Q1, to 23% to 23.5%. For the second half of 2015, the HTC Grip fitness band will be launched in the U.S. with its VR device expected to rollout at the end of the year.

HTC also says that while it has no plans to open a manufacturing facility in India, it does expect to partner with local companies in the country. With 6% of the Indian market, HTC says that we should expect to see new HTC Desire series handsets launched in the region during the third quarter.

Liar Liar Liar ! I dont think these numbers are for real. With their htc one m9 they should be struggling right now. Or it might be their desire series thats the selling point now. Htc can make a lot of profit and their revenue will increase if they can come out with an all new design and layout for their flagship m10.

lol i really laughed when i read this comment i actually pictured you jumping in your place and hitting your head .. "noooo they can't be making profiiiiit" lol on a serious note a lot of people find the M9 a very attractive phone with a lot of ++ going it's way. each phone has advantages and disadvantages compared to the competition and i see M9 as one of the top phones offered to date. S6 and S6 edge have broken all records in sales but no phone can eliminate the competition and no phone is perfect (no SD card, Glass back, TW ...).

Good job HTC. They will continue to increase profits as others lose profits. Keep up the good work!

It must be that HTC Sense Home widget. Knocked it out of the park, apparently.

Apple does $1.68 billion in revenue in less than 3-4 days let alone HTC does this in a quarter.

as long as the company is in black,they know that they will get there and be in the game. that's every company's vision and mission.
