Far East South Region - Singapore, Malaysia, China, Thailand, Taiwan and India


Consistent with the migration of business from the Americas, Europe and Far East North regions to the Far East South region, customer revenue in the Far East South region increased 23.3% in fiscal 2005 in U.S. dollars, compared with the prior year.  This region is now our largest and fastest growing segment.  The revenue growth in this region was driven by strong demand across the consumer products and computer markets, as well as the mobile phone sector of the telecommunications market.  


Our sales in China increased by 23% as a result of customer demand supported by increased production capacity.  The biggest drivers of this growth were American, European and Japanese companies moving their design and production to China and greater penetration of Taiwanese multinational accounts.  We experienced strong demand in the mobile phone, notebook and desktop computer, consumer electronics and automotive markets.


Products used in mobile phones constitute nearly one-third of Far East South sales. Consumer electronics is another important market for the region.  During the year, new products were introduced to keep pace with the ongoing migration from analog to digital technology.  The region is coordinating opportunities with our Molex counterparts in Japan to have these products designed in the Far East North and produced in China.


In the data, networking and computing arena, we shifted our focus from telecommunications infrastructure equipment to the far stronger server market.  The region also grew in its traditional niche of personal computers and notebooks.


The automotive business in the Far East South region, although still in its early stages, is accelerating.  Our product pipeline grew to five times the 2004 level.  The Big 3 (Daimler Chrysler, Ford and General Motors) and their suppliers moving to China want local design, procurement and production, which the region can provide.  We plan to open a new plant in summer 2007 in Chengdu, considered the Detroit of China.  The new plant is expected to be our largest worldwide and manufacture products for the automotive industry and for other industries as well.  To offer customers a complete solution, the region maintains a balance between high precision, high technology manufacturing in Singapore and commoditized capability in China.

Far East South Region – Singapore, Malaysia, China, Thailand, Taiwan and India


Consistent with the migration of business from the Americas, Europe and Far East North regions to the Far East South region, customer revenue in the Far East South region increased from the prior year comparable periods.  As a result, this region is our largest and fastest growing in terms of revenue. The revenue growth in this region was driven by strong demand across the mobile phone and consumer products markets.  Demand for these products was significantly higher during the third fiscal quarter of 2006 as compared with the prior year quarter primarily because the inventory correction and reduction in demand that occurred in the third fiscal quarter of 2005 did not recur in the third fiscal quarter of 2006.
