HTC says it won't be acquired by TCL, will remain an independent business entity for the time being

However, the rumors for such an acquisition or a joint partnership have been denied. Despite the potential benefits for both parties, HTC revealed that it intends to remain an independent company for the time being and maximize the profits for its shareholders, while TCL kept mum on the subject.
However, we can't help thinking that such a buyout will be extremely beneficial for HTC in particular, which has been experiencing some tough times over the past few fiscal periods. To be honest, it's latest financial report is not a bad one, but it's the exception that proves the rule – HTC needs to get on firm ground.

Stubborn suck T C. This is why you are worth so little and can be bought out in the first place. You insist that you are better than the others and too cool for TCL when they are exactly what you need. And no you are not better than the others no matter how much you want to believe. It's not just marketing. You suck.

They're not stubborn, they're just being themselves, better safe than sorry. I don't think TCL will help much if they acquire HTC; just look at Alcatel, TCL just rebrand their phones to TCL in China and look where are they right now. Alcatel is like a coward, not willing to take a big step forward like the others, - Bad marketing - Imperfect devices - Bad on supporting Android updates for their devices And they stupidly got themselves bought by TCL. HTC is not that stupid.

HTC's days are numbered . Sony is a way bigger company then HTC still making loss in Mobile business . HTC should not even think profit with horrible devices . Only regular OS update won't do anything . Lenovo bought Motorola , which doesn't mean Motorola is dead . Lenovo can help Motorola to invest and develop their products even better . Bad move .

I wouldn't compare Lenovo to TCL. Lenovo is a known entity and a leader in desktops and laptops. I'd never even heard of TCL until yesterday. I'm not thrilled that Motorola was sold to a Chinese company, but I take comfort that it was Lenovo, a company I know and trust.

I hope htc sticks on, they are making great phones lately. But htc really needs to remove its head from butt, give up the stubbornness on ultrapixel cameras. I know many people went for S5 instead of M8 for the camera alone. And they need to up their marketing and availability too.

People just don't get it,it's a multinational Taiwanese company,therefore the Taiwanese government won't even allow such thing to happen,and besides the government have money ,they will just pump in cash if it need be. The government have been working with HTC as well ,it won't work with HTC just for fun. To make it clear the government must have some shares in it...........don't need to explain more
