Taiwanese copper and electronic cable manufacturer Walsin Lihwa (Walsin) board has decided to sell its LED subsidiary Xian Walsin Technology in China’s assets for RMB 166 million (US $26.72 million) to Shangxi Electronic Information  Group, marking Walsin’s exit from the LED industry, according to a report from China Times.

The company board announced it will be selling the Xian LED subsidiary’s land, factories, and equipment to Shangxi Electronic Information Group. Walsin estimates it will be listing a loss of RMB 4.37 million from the transaction.

The group’s refocus of company strategies seems to becoming effective, Walsin Lihwa has turned around losses during second quarter of 2015, with revenues during first quarter exceeding NT $50 million (US $1.59 million). The group’s consolidated revenue reached NT $728 million, and Earnings Before Tax (EBT) was NT $1.12 billion, while its net profits reached NT $743 million.
