HTC’s return to profitability has been driven by the sales momentum of its
HTC One (M8), HTC One mini 2 and Desire 816 products around the world. In
the United States, HTC One (M8) continues to impress the market with
availability through all four major operators, while across Europe the HTC
One mini 2 has extended the best-in-class HTC One (M8) experience in a
more compact format. The HTC Desire franchise also experienced significant
gains, led by the success of Desire 816.

“As is demonstrated by this quarter’s results, we have continued to
improve all aspects of our business, while building on the incredible
excitement around our current line of products,” said Peter Chou, HTC’s
CEO. “This profitable quarter is a positive step that is the result of
having focused on delivering the best possible smartphone to the world,
in the HTC One (M8) and expanding our offerings with the HTC One mini 2
and our Desire line.”

The HTC One (M8) and Desire 816 continued to dominate in Taiwan, and for
the first time, HTC ranked #1 in both unit share and value share. Overall
sales momentum was sound in China and India, as a result of a well-catered
product portfolio to the very fast-growing market.

HTC’s superior design and engineering capabilities continue to impress,
with the HTC One (M8) and HTC Dot View case once again claiming the Gold
Medal in Design and Innovation at the Computex d&i awards in June,
organized by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and
iF (International Forum Design).
