Acer founder un­fazed by PC ship­ment decline in 2014

The China Post - - TAIWAN BUSINESS -

Acer Inc. ( ) founder Stan Shih ( ) said Mon­day that he is not wor­ried about a decline in PC ship­ments of the Tai­wanese com­puter maker last year be­cause the com­pany is on track to turn its busi­ness around.

“I’m not wor­ried about it. I be­lieve we will hold steady on ship­ments,” Shih said on the side­lines of a press event to an­nounce part­ner­ships among three l ocal com­pa­nies and his own foun­da­tion — Stan’s Foun­da­tion — to pro­mote new busi­ness mod­els for lan­guage mar­kets.

“We have pur­sued vol­ume in the past and suf­fered losses. Now we in­tend to strengthen our earn­ings and con­fi­dence first and look to busi­ness growth in the long term,” Shih said.


Although Acer will fo­cus on sev­eral “com­pet­i­tive” prod­uct cat­e­gories in the cur­rent stage, the com­pany still hopes to ex­pand its PC of­fer­ings in a bid to mon­e­tize from its Build Your Own Cloud (BYOC) busi­ness in the fu­ture, he said.
