Company background

Pegatron is the second-largest contract electronics manufacturer in Taiwan, after Hon Hai Precision Industry, better known as Foxconn Technology Group. Pegatron's total assets exceed $14 billion. The company has a diverse product lineup, including motherboards, desktop PCs, notebooks, wireless systems, game consoles and TVs. By category, around 60% of sales come from smartphones and other communications devices.

The company is a major assembler for Apple. The U.S. technology giant reportedly allotted a small portion of its iPhone 4 orders to Pegatron, which led to the Taiwanese company landing a much bigger contract for the iPhone 5c in 2013. To make room for further growth, Pegatron has been building up its production capacity. It plans to spend up to $300 million in 2015 to expand its plants, including one in Suzhou, in China's Jiangsu Province.

Founded in 2008, Pegatron was once the production arm of Taiwan's Asustek Computer. Before joining Pegatron, Chairman T.H. Tung was one of the co-founders of Asus and served as that company's vice chairman. Asus remains the largest shareholder in Pegatron, with a roughly 17% stake.
