Taipei, Taiwan, R.O.C. – November 4th, 2005 – ADATA (TAIEX: 3260), the largest Memory Module Company in Taiwan, today announced that net sales for October 2005 totaled NT$2,670 million. Post a 12% decline on a month-on month basis, and 3% decline on a year-on-year basis. Revenues for January through October 2005 were NT$25,988 million.

As for Product mix, Flash Products revenue in October rises to 40% again. DDRI and DDRII are 53% and 5%, respectively.

“October sales slightly declined is due to 2 working days less than September,” said the CFO, Kevin Kao. “But ADATA’s Flash product portion keeps increasing, reflects our efforts to diversify product line. ADATA Flash business in October still remain same level as September above NT$ 1bn.”

For outlook in the coming month, ADATA is still positive. Of the 2 major memory products ADATA carries, Flash is still under supply shortage situation. DDRI demand remains stable. Both are good sign for November sales.

Except DDRI and Flash, DDRII still has inventory issue, but the effect on ADATA is LIMITED, because DDRII portion in ADATA’s inventory is quite low.“Because DDRII inventory level in supply chain is still high, we think maybe at the beginning of next year, should we see better improvement.”Kao said.
