By Kevin Chen  /  Staff reporter

Unity Opto said the new program could prompt TV brands to resume buying LED backlights this quarter, while the still-strong sales momentum in LED lighting may help boost its sales by a double digit percentage from the July to September quarter.

Epistar shares rose 1.92 percent to NT$53 and those of Everlight advanced 2.1 percent to NT$53.5 on Friday. Lextar increased 3.19 percent to NT$25.9, but Unity Opto fell 0.42 percent to NT$23.6.
