Default Asustek Set to Withdraw from Mainboards Manufacturing?

Asustek Computer, the world’s largest maker of mainboards, has decided to completely spin off its mainboards and graphics cards manufacturing arm Pegatron Technologies, the company said this week. The move will allow Asus to become more competitive in terms of branding, but will further withdraw the firm from the actual manufacturing.

According to a statement posted with Taiwan Stock Exchange, Asustek company had convened a board meeting to resolve the spin-off of its ODM business. As a result of the meeting, Pegatron Holding, the company that made virtually all Asus-branded motherboards, will issue two billion new shares to a number of shareholders.

Maybe I didn't sleep enough last night, but I don't quite understand the press-release. What does this mean? That Asus are going to concentrate on mainstream mid-priced mainboards?

Since they already manufactured next to no mainboards, the only difference is at the level of the shareholders, of which I am not a part.

Worst case scenario is that in the near future, we'll be buying boards from Petragon instead of Asus... which in a way, we already do.
