Earnings per share of $0.07 was reported on a gross margin of 17%. According to Joyce, those figures were all at the high end of the management’s expectations.
Mr Joyce also gave some insight into the strategic focus of Amkor, emphasizing that mobile was a key part of the strategic outlook. “Mobile communications is a strategic focus for us and our communications revenue grew around $90 million or 30% over the first quarter of 2012 and represented 59% of our total sales in the first quarter,” said Joyce.
