      ALi Corporation (3041 TT) today held its 2016 fourth quarter earnings conference call.

The gross profit was NT$298 million. The gross margin remained at 36%, about the same level as the previous quarter. The operating expense was NT$381 million, down from NT$398 million in the previous quarter. As a result, the operating loss narrowed down to -NT$84 million, from -NT$114 million in the third quarter.

After the write-off, there will be zero outstanding amount of goodwill on its balance sheet and ALi will be exempt from any periodic impairment examination in each financial reporting period.
