Acer has been having financial problems ever since netbooks fell into disfavor, thus eliminating its greatest revenue source.
The situation hasn't changed much. In fact, Acer's revenues fell quite a bit during the month of November (2012).
The sum ended up at NT$24.36 billion (US$837.43 million / 644.52 million Euro).
While the sequential drop wasn't too gruesome (4.58%), the on-year decline was (31.88%).
The full financial report for the third quarter will be filed next month (January 2013), so we can't know exactly if there was a positive or negative progress. Acer seems
to expect anything between a 5% drop and a 5% rise.
Acer is currently trying to increase the value of its laptop designs, even if it means fewer different models. The strategy will take a while to show its effects.
