On April 27, Luxshare Precision released its annual report for 2022 and its first quarter results for 2023.

Although the market raised questions about Luxshare Precision’s reliance on a single large customer, from the recently published financial report can we see that it has chosen to grow alongside the world’s prime clients and has better credit terms than its peers. This not only accelerates the turnover of accounts receivable but also ensures a healthy cash flow.

At the same time, the company’s accounts receivable turnover days in 2022 were 48.5 days, showing a decrease of 4.66 days.
According to news from Taiwan’s Economic Daily News on April 26, Apple will include Pegatron and Luxshare Precision as iPhone 15 series suppliers. It is expected that Pegatron will obtain iPhone 12% assembly share of 15 Pro mobile phones, while Luxshare Precision will obtain 15% assembly share of iPhone 15 Ultra mobile phones. Based on market data, Luxshare Precision shipped approximately 20 million iPhones in 2022, and under optimistic estimates, the company’s iPhone shipments this year could increase to 42-50 million units.
In addition, Luxshare Precision’s R&D investment has seen a steady increasement in recent years. In terms of R&D investment, the company has invested a total of RMB20.834 billion in the past three years, of which RMB8.447 billion was invested in 2022, hitting a five-year high. In 2022, the company has accumulated 4,526 invention patents, representing an increase of 46.47% compared to the end of 2021, leading the industry in R&D strength.
It is also worth noting that the company’s interim report forecast for 2023 was also released alongside the Q1 report, showing that Luxshare Precision’s performance in the first half of 2023 has stable progress. Net profit attributable to shareholders of the listed company for the first half of 2023 is expected to be RMB4.162-4.541 billion, representing a year-on-year increase of 10%-20%.
In summary, Luxshare Precision is moving from a single business mode to a more diversified and comprehensive development. Given the vast blue ocean market and great growth opportunities, it is believed that Luxshare Precision has a promising future.
