Vietnam contract manufacturing: Dong exchange rates v EMS/ODM provider earnings growth

By Staff

The Vietnamese Dong is the only ASEAN bloc currency that depreciated against the US$ in the first-half 2019. For electronics OEM decision makers considering EMS/ODM providers with operations in foreign countries and wanting to know contract electronics EMS and ODM earnings growth, (whether in Vietnam or other regions across Asia, and elsewhere) check to see that EMS/ODM growth is ‘true’ and not due to a majority of earnings reported under the rate in one particular country – using that country’s currency exchange rate.

Currency translation effects can end up in the income statement or the equity section of the balance sheet, decided by internal accounting rules. Effects that end up in the income statement are not part of continuing operations.
