Overseas mobile players may work hard to gain back lost market shares in second half of 2016, together with the highly saturated smartphone market in China which may affect the overall growth rate of the industry in the future. We feel positive about the growing demand on functionality of smartphones and other smart mobile communication terminals from customers, as this will help enhance specifications and expand market size for camera modules. At the same time, with the growing demand for higher security towards smart mobile communication terminals such as mobile phone, fingerprint recognition modules are expected to become the standard equipment for mid-to-high end smartphones and therefore stimulate the rapid growth of fingerprint recognition modules business. Meanwhile, we will prepare for camera modules that are used for augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and 360° pan-shot. The Directors are confident to lead the Group to embrace the challenges, and make further efforts to achieve good development and strive to create greater value for the shareholders of the Company.”
