It had previously announced a slow start to the period, although this was not unexpected.In its last results conference call, Chialin Chang, CFO of HTC, said that the company is looking to a strong Q4 to “provide an indication that it’s our intention to grow again”.HTC is forecasting Q4 sales in the TWD43 billion to TWD47 billion range. With October and November sales of TWD32.7 billion, that means the company needs December sales of just TWD10.3 billion to hit the low-end of its guidance – it has seen monthly sales above this since March 2014, and recorded sales of TWD12.4 billion in December 2013.The picture is a little more bleak when it comes to the year-to-date, impacted by HTC’s slow start to 2014. Cumulative sales for the eleven months stand at TWD172.7 billion, compared with TWD190.97 billion in the same period last year. HTClast_img read more

GRIZ GRIT: The Best Part of the Year

first_imgIt’s just about my favorite time of year. I’m not a winter sports nut and not extremely fond of sub-freezing temperatures. And since I live in the woods near a mountain at the end of a 100-yard driveway off an unmaintained gravel road, I don’t especially like abundant snowfall. But I do cherish the overlap in sports seasons, which in my case involves college football and basketball. Sometimes when I go out the door there’s a basketball event preceding an early-morning football trip or vice versa. But the challenge of doubling the work load and immersing another 30 or so hoop games into the last half of football season is indeed enjoyable to me. I’d have a hard time choosing my favorite because each brings different challenges and all types of enjoyment. But I find the pace of basketball and the proximity to the action – I do have the best seat in the house unless we are playing at Cameron Indoor Stadium – let an announcer participate at a level far greater than football, where in most cases you are far removed. At many venues I choose to be seated next to the Grizzly bench, which, although it’s hard to see around the last two coaches, takes me right inside the huddle during timeouts. It allows me to hear the dialogue with players and other coaches and referees, and makes it possible to fully engage in the action. I often chat up the officials and have become good friends with some of the veterans. And many Griz fans engage with me, even I have the headsets on and am talking. Well, remember this isn’t rocket science and I’m a pretty good multi-tasker. The other thing about hoops – and you’ve probably heard me say this before – I really enjoy getting acquainted with a new group of older teenagers each year. Because the travel party is so much smaller in basketball than it is in football, I develop much closer relationships in hoops than in football. But there are several other things at play here as well. Basketball action is so fast and furious you really don’t have much time other than to describe what is occurring, hoping that your words match the excitement and athleticism of the play. And you see a play developing much quicker when you are right in the action near mid-court. And, unless you’re screened, you can anticipate a play developing and add an adequate description. But make no mistake, switching back and forth between the two sports on consecutive days tests your mettle, preparation, eyes, concentration and, most of all, endurance. The hoops schedule is set with several conflicts with football. Practice is soon to start – the Lady Griz are already on the floor – and the annual maroon-silver scrimmage is later this month. And my workload is about to double. And believe me, I’m one lucky guy. Email Stay Connected with the Daily Roundup.

Germany Sets Sights on Eventing European Championship Title

More from Horse Sport:Christilot Boylen Retires From Team SportAfter an exemplary career as one of Canada’s top Dressage riders, seven-time Olympian Christilot Boylen has announced her retirement from team competition.2020 Royal Agricultural Winter Fair CancelledFor only the second time in its history, The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair has been cancelled but plans are being made for some virtual competitions.Royal Agricultural Winter Fair Statement on 2020 EventAs the Province of Ontario starts to reopen, The Royal’s Board and staff will adhere to all recommendations put forward by government and health officials.Government Financial Assistance for Ontario FarmersOntario Equestrian has recently released this update of several financial assistance packages available, including those for farm business. Email* The scene is set for a titanic battle for the Longines FEI Eventing European Championship, held for the fifth time at the much-loved German venue of Luhmühlen from 29 August – 1 September 2019.The German team is notoriously hard to beat on home ground – they dominated the medals here in 2011, as well as at Malmö (SWE) in 2013 and Blair Castle (GBR) in 2015 – but surrendered their crown in 2017 at Strzegom (POL) to Great Britain, the record-breaking winners of 22 team titles since the championship began in 1953.Germany has a wealth of talent to choose from as they are allowed to enter 12 combinations. The reigning individual champions, Ingrid Klimke (GER) and her brilliant SAP Hale Bob, look to have timed their title defence to perfection with a sparkling win in the recent CCI4*-S at Aachen (GER) and it will be fascinating to see if three-time European Champion Michael Jung can win a record fourth title on new ride FischerChipmunk FST, a horse he has taken over from former team mate Julia Krajewski (GER).Great Britain, the reigning World and European Champions, field two from their triumphant FEI World Equestrian Games™ squad last year: Piggy French, who has enjoyed a stream of international wins this summer, including the coveted Badminton title – she rides Quarrycrest Echo and Kristina Cook, the 2009 individual champion.Cook, who celebrates her 49th birthday on Cross Country day, will be making a remarkable ninth FEI European Championship appearance, riding Billy the Red. In addition, Britain will be calling on world number two, Oliver Townend, with his dual Kentucky CCI5*-L winner Cooley Master Class and following the withdrawal of Tom McEwen and Toledo De Kerser from the British squad, Pippa Funnell has received the call to replace Tom, riding her own and Marek Sebastak’s Majas Hope. Dual European champion, Pippa has competed in ten championship teams – winning three European medals, the first of her titles in Luhmuhlen 20 years ago in 1999 – and has represented Great Britain at three Olympic Games.Irish eventing is on the crest of a wave with world team silver last year. Can they go one better this time? No doubt statistician Sam Watson, who has had much international success this season and who rides the eye-catching dun, Tullamore Flamco, can provide the odds. In a neat twist, his father, John, was a member of the last Irish team to win the Europeans, 40 years ago at Luhmühlen in 1979.Watson’s Tryon team mates Cathal Daniels (Rioghan Rua) and Sarah Ennis (Woodcourt Garrison) may take all the beating if Course Designer Mike Etherington-Smith’s Cross Country track plays to Irish strengths.Another extraordinary statistic is that France has never won European team gold. The Olympic champions field a particularly star-studded squad that includes two former individual European champions, Jean-Lou Bigot (1993) and Nicolas Touzaint (2003 and 2007), plus the brilliant Olympic combination of Thibaut Vallette and Qing de Briot.Thirteen nations will be fielding teams, including Sweden (the reigning silver medallists), Italy (bronze medallists in 2017), plus Austria, Belgium, Finland, Netherlands, Poland, Spain and Switzerland. Four nations will field individuals only: Czech Republic, Denmark, Hungary, Norway.Aside from the contest for medals, crucial Olympic qualifications are at stake for the top 2 teams that have not already qualified.Follow all the live action on FEI TV and live results on www.luhmuehlen.deFor more information on the statistics, medal table and history of the FEI European Championships click here.
