AUO and Wistron establish a joint venture for TFT-LCD module plant

AU Optronics Corporation has approved a joint venture of TFT-LCD TV panel module production with Wistron Corporation in China.
The new business model of allying with one of the world's leading ODM manufacturers will hopefully help not only broaden customer base, but also provide in-time and value-added services for customers by joining the strengths from both sides. Total solutions for design integration are included to bring about long-term benefits for AUO and Wistron, seizing global business opportunities together.
The Board of Directors of AUO and Wistron approved establishing the joint venture with a registered capital of no more than US$ 10 million. AUO and Wistron will own 51% and 49% of the shareholding of the joint venture respectively. The joint venture will tentatively be named Zhongshan BriVision Optronics Corporation.
If the investment plan is approved by the relevant authority, AUO's presence of module plants in the China market will be more complete. With services covering East China, South China, North China and Southwest China, AUO will be able to more closely respond to customer requirements and strengthen its quality of services.
