HTC on Monday reported its revenue performance for the month of April, which continued the company’s downward trend as it struggles against rivals Samsung and Apple. HTC’s sales totaled NT$19.6 billion in April 2013, or roughly $645 million, and cumulative sales for the first four months of 2013 have now reached NT$62.4 billion. April’s performance was down 37% from April 2012, when HTC reported sales totaling NT$31 billion. HTC also saw cumulative revenue reach NT$99 billion by the end of April last year. While the company’s April 2012 sales continued a downward trend that has some industry watchers questioning whether or not HTC should begin hunting for a new CEO, there is one positive sign: As the HTC One began to roll out around the world in April, HTC’s revenue was up 26% over March.
