TAIPEI, March 24 (Reuters) - Apple Inc assembler Pegatron Corp expects revenue from its non-computing business to fall by 15-20 percent in the first quarter from the previous three months, its chief financial officer, Charles Lin, said on Monday.
The company earlier reported net profit in the fourth quarter of T$3.38 billion ($110.48 million), well above the analyst estimates of T$2.84 billion and T$2.65 billion in the same period of 2012, driven by greater-than-expected demand in computing and holiday season sales.
Lin said the firm also sees notebook shipment volume dropping 20-25 percent in the first quarter from the previous three months. Motherboard and desktop shipment volumes are also expected to fall 30-35 percent in the first quarter on a quarterly basis.
