With the emergence of ChatGPT in 2023, the server industry also set off a craze for artificial intelligence servers. During the Review Period, the focus was on the development and delivery of new products with AIGC (Artificial Intelligence Generated Content), and the profitability was relatively improved


Looking ahead, the macroeconomic environment is full of challenges. The global recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine remains slow and uneven. Economic activity still falls short of its prepandemic path, especially in emerging market and developing economies, and there are widening divergences among regions. Several forces are holding back the recovery. However, even the Group is facing such challenges and difficulties in the macro-economic environment, the management remains confident in its future business. With the support of Luxshare Group, the Group enjoys advantages in both product manufacturing capabilities and financial strength. The Group will continue to develop strategic businesses and markets, strengthen its business foundation and achieve impressive results during the economic downturn.

The Group believes that the PRC’s continued acceleration of 5G technology research and development, as well as the new social normals caused by the epidemic, including work-from-home and online meetings, are expected to drive the demand of cable assembly products and telecommunication sector and benefit the Group’s business growth.In light of this, the management remains confident in 5G-related business. During the Review Period, the Group has set up a new wholly-owned subsidiary, Linkz Cables Mexico, S. de R.L. de C.V., in Mexico to increase its market share in markets outside China and Asia. A new plant is under construction by Luxshare Group which is expected to be put into production in 2024. By then, the Group will set up the new factory and produce digital cables and automotive wire harness products, which can protect supply chains and export markets against geopolitical tensions and unforeseen disruptions and enable the Group to capture market opportunities upon the arrival of this generation 5G network.

Moreover, the utilisation rate of cloud technology in the companies around the world is continuously increasing. In cloud computing, the computing storage network must be placed in the data centre, therefore, the growing cloud technology is expected to drive the development of data centre. Meanwhile, the development of 5G will boost the application of big data, IoT, internet gaming and video streaming through cloud platform. The Group remains very positive on the continuous growth of the business of data centre sector. Currently, the products offered by the Group under this business are mainly applied in data centres, which includes rack-mounted computing servers, edge servers, AI smart servers, storage servers, smart network cards, GPU cards, complete cabinet products, etc. Having considered that (i) China is actively conducting investment activities to build digital infrastructure; (ii) the PRC manufacturers continue to increase the share of local supply chain due to geopolitics relationship; and (iii) Luxshare Precision has extensive technological knowhow and good customers’ relationships, the Group is optimistic on the future potential growth of server business. The Group believes the development of server business is a good opportunity for the Group to further develop its business and will help diversify the Group’s business as well as the Group’s income stream.

As for the medical equipment sector, the Group expects the demand for medical equipment cables will continue to bring positive impact to the Group’s medical equipment cables orders this year. To catch up with the trend, the Group has established two wholly-owned subsidiaries, Time Interconnect Technology (Kunshan) Limited and Time Interconnect Technology (Jiangxi) Limited during the Review Period, to expand production capacity and R&D capabilities for medical equipment cables products, and production has been started in September 2023. Moving ahead, the Group will pay more attention and efforts in this sector and continue to enhance its medical equipment customers base, as well as to strengthen its R&D capabilities to seize the opportunity arise from increasing demand in market.

Besides, considering the vigorous development of the automotive and electric vehicle markets, China has remained the world’s largest automotive market and automotive producer in the past few years. The Group believes that the automotive wire harness products can help the Group to provide its customers with a broader product portfolio, and to step in new business sector by enriching the Group’s business portfolio and broadening its unique customer base, helping the Group to capture opportunities brought by the booming electric vehicle market.

At the same time, after the acquisition by Luxshare Precision, the Group entered into a diversified business integration with Luxshare Group.  Luxshare Precision is conducting a strategic review of the operations and financial position of the Company, and actively exploring business opportunities for the growth and development, in both organic and inorganic manners, for the Group. Luxshare Precision will deploy the platform advantages and market position of the Luxshare Group and introduce strategic resources to the Group with intention to further strengthen the Group’s potential for continuous growth and core competitiveness in its market and to enable the Group to develop strategically to become an all-rounded network solutions and infrastructure provider, so as to create greater value for the shareholders.
