NEW YORK, October 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Multi-touch screens are an update to the single-touch screen technology, which allowed the user to choose a single point, move, click, and slide with a single finger or one touch stylus. The newer technology designed to distinguish between numerous touch inputs on a single screen and respond. According to data provided by Research and Markets the global multi-touch screen market was valued at $6 billion in 2016 and is projected to reach $16 billion by 2023 growing at a CAGR of 15.9% from 2017 to 2023. Atlas Technology International Inc. (OTC: ATLT), Sony Corp. (NYSE: SNE), AU Optronics Corp. (NYSE: AUO), LG Display Co., Ltd. (NYSE: LPL), 3M Company (NYSE: MMM).
Touchscreen technology is also used as an input device covering the electronic display of an information processing system. A user can give input for carrying out any task, with the help of a stylus or multiple fingers. A report by Grand View Research indicates that, "Scientific improvement has resulted in a significant shift from traditional large, slow and inaccurate resistance technology based single-touch to a high speed penetrating the multi-touch capacitive screen. Processing units can receive input and output through the human-computer interface using touchscreen technology. Many applications across the industries make use of touch screen in the day to day business."

The increase in revenues was primarily driven from new contracts from the Company's growing portfolio of blue-chip multinational companies as well as continued growth with its existing clientele. Gross margins expanded to just over 35% from 34% in the third fiscal quarter, due primarily to new revenue channels as well as overall economies of scale. The Company reported net income of $275,784 for its fourth fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2017, exceeding its previously announced guidance of $180,000-$200,000 and nearly three times earnings from the prior quarter.

The Company's fourth fiscal quarter represented its second consecutive quarter of positive operating cash flow, a significant improvement from a loss in the year-ago quarter."
"Our financial results for our fourth quarter and full year were outstanding for a company still in its infancy as a public company," said Matthew Tsai, Chief Executive Officer of Atlas Technology International, Inc. "As much as we would like to celebrate we, perhaps more than anybody else, realize how cutthroat the competition has become in this industry. As a result, we are seeing new and tougher challenges but at the same time the emergence of dozens of new and even larger and more lucrative opportunities than the industry has ever experienced. It is due to these opportunities that we decided to move our corporate headquarters to the United States and better position ourselves for the next wave of growth and expansion from both the industry and Atlas Technology."
"The touchscreen industry has grown to become the fastest-growing segment of the display market since Apple's launch of its iPhone in 2007. After all, it is quite evident that touchscreen technology, in one form or another, can be found today across a number of high-demanding consumer goods such as mobile phones, handheld games, game consoles, and tablet PC applications, which collectively is expected to account for more than $30 billion in touchscreen revenues this year, up from just $7 billion in 2010," continued Mr. Tsai.
