D-Link expects significant growth in its 2011 net profit from 2010 but a small increase in corresponding consolidated revenues, and slight growth in gross margin, according to company president and CEO Tony Tsao at a March 4 investors conference.

D-Link looks to the large market potential derived from construction of communication network infrastructure in emerging and Asia Pacific markets, growing demand for devices used in smart TVs in Europe as well as market demand for consumer networking products sold through retail channels in North America in 2011, Tsao pointed out.

D-Link posted net EPS of NT$1.89 (US$0.06) in 2010 and plans to deal out a cash dividend per share of NT$1.30.
