The company will cautiously respond to both graphic and machine tool needs; the inventory levels are expected to adjust quarterly.

The Vice Chairman of DFI, Michael Lee, stated that although the company will face inventory adjustments, inflation, economic slowdown, overall economic uncertainty and other market changes in the second half of the year, the needs for new infrastructure in various markets are clear. These needs will produce growth in automation, 5G, AIoT, and other smart applications through the strong demands. Therefore, aside from carefully responding to external risks in advance, DFI will optimize internal inventory controls. Overall performance is being optimized quarter by quarter according to the various operating indicators, and DFI is cautiously optimistic about the second half of the year.

Considering the demand for and diversity of smart applications on the market and deployment developments, DFI will extend its market presence to applications such as green energy, information security, and Fintech, thereby satisfying customer needs for different applications.
