iPhone maker Hon Hai cuts 2020 outlook after virus outbreak

first_imgHon Hai Precision Industry, Apple’s main production partner, cut its 2020 revenue growth outlook after assessing the potential impact of a deadly coronavirus outbreak.Hon Hai, which makes the vast majority of the world’s iPhones from the central Chinese city of Zhengzhou, is now projecting a sales increase of 1 percent to 3 percent this year, Chairman Young Liu told Bloomberg News in a text message. That’s down from a Jan. 22 forecast of 3 percent to 5 percent, before the epidemic spread around the globe, and lags the 5.4 percent average of analysts’ projections.The contagion is expected to disrupt Apple’s carefully calibrated production chain centered on China, while also dampening consumer demand and overall economic growth. Hon Hai, an important manufacturer also for major brands from HP to Sony, said Tuesday it still expects to be able to restart facilities throughout China on schedule, according to a text message sent to Bloomberg News. Suppliers such as Quanta Computer, Inventec and LG Display also said they would go back to work next week in China. But while Chinese officials and companies have targeted Feb. 10 as the date to resume work in much of the country, doubts about the timing have grown in recent days as the virus death toll rises, workers find themselves stuck in municipal lockdowns and the transport of people and goods has been hampered.”Given current market conditions, we are lowering to 1 percent -3 percent,” Liu replied when asked about whether Hon Hai will cut its original sales growth forecast for this year.Hon Hai’s shares stood largely unchanged Wednesday after having slid about 11 percent since a broader Asian market selloff began in mid-January.Topics :last_img read more

Community members gather for presentation on Decatur Hills possible expansion site

first_imgGreensburg, IN—A public presentation of information on the Decatur Landfill was held last evening at the Greensburg Community High School.  Present were experts with IDEM as well as Dr. Terry West, a geology professor with Purdue University that discussed the land underneath the landfill in respect to the public concern that the water aquifer could possibly be contaminated by landfill runoff and leach into usable water. “Be assured of the fact that the geology of this site is a very good location and is one that many organizations would like this type of material under their landfill, ” according to Dr. West.    Dr. West specializes in hazardous waste disposal as well as engineering geology. He discussed not only would the liner used be a safe material to block toxins but also, the area’s glacial till and clay acts as nature’s blocker to break down toxins.  Dr. West stated, “Near Bloomington, it is difficult to put in a landfill in the limestone country, because limestone has karst, or leakage problems, but glacial till has the best material to put in landfills in this area of the state.”Several Community members asked questions or expressed concerns during the question-answer portion of the presentation.  There are currently only 33 landfills in the state and the current Decatur Hills Landfill has been in use and permitted since January of 1990.last_img read more
