Acer has released a report in which it puts its January 2019 revenues at about US$540 million. These figures have decreased by 23.7% compared to December 2018 and by 1.3% compared to January 2018. The company has cited the ongoing effects of the SoC shortage in explaining these changes.

Acer's January 2019 takings have been made public. The company puts them at 16.66 billion new Taiwanese dollars (NTD), or just under US$540 million. It represents a month-on-month drop of 23.7%, and a year-on-year drop of 1.3%. Considering the holiday nature of December, this is a less than inspiring performance.

The company has noted that the CPU shortage had a lingering effect on its business during the period in question. On the other hand, the 'gaming' sector of Acer, in which the Taiwanese group sells monitors and PCs directed at this market, was reported to exhibit a 33% year-on-year increase.

Acer has also secured a major promotional role in the grand finals of the 2019 Asia-Pacific Predator League eSport tournament. It is taking place at the Thai National Stadium from February 15 to 17.

Therefore, the company's fortunes may pick up throughout the rest of this year to come. For example, its latest Predator Triton 900 laptop was received well at CES this year, and we have named it as one of our notebooks to look out for in 2019.
