The company attributed the improvement in profits to an increase in prices of its main products and higher processing fees for copper foil.
EPS is expected at between 1.2 fen and 1.7 fen. Finance costs are expected to drop as the company had recorded exchange losses from U.S. dollar-denominated loans in same period of 2016.
As of Oct. 13, US$1 was equivalent to 6.59 Chinese yuan.
