EMS firm Integrated Micro-Electronics Inc. (IMI) posted $795.2 million in revenues for the first nine months of 2017, an increase of 29% year-on-year due to positive effects of recent acquisitions and a rising demand in the automotive and industrial segments.

IMI CEO Arthur Tan said, "IMI today is different from the IMI more than 10 years ago in the way we do things. We are now in the forefront of taking electronics to the next level penetrating high reliability markets and moving forward to a more advanced automotive electrification and autonomous driving."
Revenues from Europe and Mexico operations surged 15% year-on-year to $263.4 million in the first nine months driven by increasing demand for automotive lighting, an innovative global megatrend for safety and performance. Ongoing expansions and new product introduction carried out in Mexico plant to support North America requirements also bolstered the group revenues.
Philippine operations increased by 4% to $197.9 million, strengthened by new industrial applications despite drop in demand in the security and medical device business.
The company’s China operations posted $198.2 million in revenues, up 1% year-on-year, as a result of demand decline in the telecom infrastructure business, but offset by positive growth in automotive and industrial segments.
The two recent acquisitions, VIA Optronics and STI International, contributed a combined $136.2 million in revenues.
New project wins for the year have reached $580 million, a 217% increase from the previous year. Other notable wins in the third quarter include controls and sensors, power modules, advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) controllers, and battery management systems.
