HTC uvažuje o prodeji společnosti Vive VR, uvádí zpráva

Zdá se, že společnost HTC uvažuje o některých drastických obchodních rozhodnutích podle nové zprávy, kterou vydala společnost Bloomberg. The Taiwanese personal technology firm is working with specialist advisors on how to go forward say industry sources. There are a lot of options on the table at this early stage, from selling off the whole company, or more likely spinning off its newest success – the HTC Vive VR unit.

Zastánci tvrdí, že společnost HTC mluvila s řadou společností o prodeji svého portfolia aktiv, včetně společnosti Google. Nezapomeňte, že společnost HTC je výrobcem za smartphony 2016 Google Pixel a pravděpodobně bude mít tuto čest znovu s druhou generací zařízení které by měly být zahájeny v říjnu.

Smartphony Google Pixel

HTC has a long and distinguished history in smart device manufacturing and as the industry took off was one of its leaders. Unfortunately, in recent years, it has struggled to maintain market share (down to approx 2 per cent now) and its handset sales are dwarfed by Apple and Samsung on one side and the cheaper Chinese alternatives like Lenovo, Huawei et al on the other. HTC’s recent smartphone innovations have looked zajímavý spíše než přesvědčivé, zejména za ceny požadované při startu.

Last year HTC made its Vive business a wholly-owned subsidiary company, so perhaps it already had the sell-off in mind. However one would expect the likes of Google to be more interested in the whole company and / or the smartphone business, as it actually makes use of HTC’s device manufacturing facilities and expertise directly.

The above insider source based rumours don’t sound great for HTC’s future but shareholders can often do well from a fairly priced sell-off /acquisition deal. With that in mind HTC shares were up a little under 5 per cent during Taiwan’s trading hours earlier today, valuing the whole of HTC at US$1.9 billion.
