As you can imagine, all say that because of the closing or slowdown of manufacturing facilities due to the COVID-19 Virus during the first half of this year, it will have a ripple effect during Q1 and Q2 on sales and earnings. Both groups are pretty much writing off the first two quarters as ODM’s can’t make enough products to meet current PC demand.
