Network-equipment D-Link expects its sales in emerging markets as well as in North America to post healthy growth in 2010, according to company CEO and president Tony Tsao.

In the North America market, sales of D-Link’s products through e-business and non-IT sales channels are gaining momentum, Tsao noted, adding that D-Link will also push sales, once again, through mainstream retail channels in 2010.

Demand for business-class and carrier-grade network equipment is expected to swing back to a growth track in 2010, with GPON and VDSL devices, IADs (integrated access devices), IP STBs, 3G data cards and 3G routers as growth drivers, Tsao added.

D-Link also reported that it posted net profits of NT$512 million (US$15.98 million) in 2009, declining 57% from 2008. The earnings translated into an EPS of NT$0.79 for 2009. Gross margin stood at 31% in 2009, according to company data.

Additionally, D-Link said that its performance for the fourth quarter of 2009 was higher than expected, with revenues of NT$8.852 billion, net profits NT$358 million, EPS NT$0.55 and a gross margin of 34%.
