Pegatron Receives 15M iPhone 5 Orders from Apple
Apple orders 15 million iPhone 5 from Pegatron, shipments will begin on September.
“The sources pointed out that as the iPhone 5, which does not seem to have any major update from iPhone 4, is already set for shipment in September, they are already started supplying components to Pegatron with Pegatron’s plants in Shanghai, China also recently started hiring for manpower.”
The report also disclosed that in 2010, Pegatron has expanded its human power and facilities in order to reach the 10 million CDMA iPhone 4 orders from Apple. However, the company’s iPhone 4 sales during the first quarter were lower than expected, forcing Pegatron to ship less than four million CDMA iPhone 4s. This move had caused Apple’s “utilization rate to drop to only 50%.” Fortunately, by the first calendar quarter of 2011, Apple’s iPhone sales had been revived and has reached 18.65 million units – which made Pegatron stocks increased to 3.1%.
Although Foxcomm is considered to be the largest manufacturer of Apple, it is the Pegatron which received the most number of major contracts from the company. In fact, aside from iPhone, Pegatron is also reported to have iPad and MacBook orders from Apple, but this claim was not yet official as the “the products’ existing makers are still defending their orders.”
