What you need to know
- Foxconn has posted its June revenues.
- It shows a 6.83% decrease sequentially, and more than 9% year-on-year.
- It's likely COVID-19 disruption and the iPhone 12 delay may have been factors.
Apple's main supply chain partner Foxconn has posted decreased June revenues of more than 9% year-on-year.
Earlier this year, Foxconn's profits for Q1 of 2020 slumped by a record 90% to their lowest in two decades. All but wiped out, profits suffered thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, which in the early part of the year forced Foxconn to shut down its manufacturing operations in China, causing shortages of Apple products worldwide. Revenue in that report was down by 12%, so June's figures may well suggest that whilst they are still lower than expected, things are starting to turn around.
Foxconn recorded a bumper April mainly thanks to Apple's new iPhone SE, however widespread reports of the iPhone 12's delay may impact on revenue and profits in the near future. Foxconn has previously said it expects a 15% decline in smartphone sales this year. Smartphones accounted for 42% of Foxconn's revenue in Q1.
