HTC relieves 1,500 employees in the search for profit

Posted on

The Taiwan smartphone maker HTC is deleting 1,500 jobs in its production facility in Taiwan, almost a quarter of the total workforce worldwide. The redundancies are a necessary step and must be completed in September, according to the company. The share of HTC took a dive of almost 7 percent as a result of the announcement Tuesday and is therefore at the lowest level since the autumn of 2015.

HTC has been struggling with sales problems for some time. The Taiwanese company was one of the pioneers in the smartphone market, but it is difficult to compete with Chinese rivals Huawei, ZTE and Xiaomi and with the South Korean market leader Samsung, so the market share of HTC has shrunk considerably in recent years .

In September 2017, the company sold part of its smartphone department to the US technology company Google. HTC also put a lot of work in 2015 in its workforce. Then more than 2,000 jobs were lost.
