Foxconn International shares drop 2 percent after profit warningUS-FIH-SHARES:Foxconn International shares drop 2 percent after profit warning
HONG KONG (Reuters) - Shares of Foxconn International Holdings Ltd (FIH) <2038.HK>, the world's biggest contract maker of cellphones, fell more than two percent on Thursday, after it said it expected to record a net loss for 2012 due to dismal demand from its major clients.
Foxconn International shares fell 2.2 percent to HK$3.5 in early trade, underperforming a 0.2 percent fall in the main Hang Seng Index <.HSI>.
FIH, which traditionally assembles products for key clients including Nokia Oyj <NOK1V.HE>, but not Apple Inc <AAPL.O>, has struggled in recent years as many of its customers' order books have shrunk.
