TAIPEI -- Foxconn Chairman Terry Gou on Saturday narrowed down the candidates to succeed him from five to three, excluding Sharp CEO Tai Jeng-wu and Foxconn Interconnect Technology Chairman Sidney Lu Sung-ching.

"I can tell you it will not be [Sidney] Lu Sung-ching. ... Some people guessed Huang Chiu-lien, but she's not even on the board," Gou told a group of reporters before he left a Cancer Alliance charity event. "Tai Jeng-wu is also not [the successor]."
