"O2Micro’s growth momentum continued into Q1 with a 49.1% revenue increase over the same quarter in 2020, a net income of $2.5 million and an 10.7% profit margin (GAAP), compared to net loss of $1.5 million in the first quarter of 2020. We see advanced rising demand for our backlighting products in monitors, televisions, notebooks, and tablets as they sustained their upward trend through Q1. On the other hand, the strong revenue from our battery group extended across all sectors as our proprietary mixed signal designs enriched cordless devices for a wide range of uses within the home and commercial markets. Expanding acceptance of our technology resulted in additional Top Tier and OEM manufacturers’ choosing O2Micro Integrated circuits,” said Sterling Du, O2Micro’s Chairman and CEO. “These factors, along with continued management of operational costs, shows confidence that our business fundamentals are leading O2Micro into sustainable long-term profitability.”
