To reach a monthly capacity of 2 million units, Transcend Information Inc. will double the number of SMT production lines at its facility in mainland China.

The plant will have four SMT lines that will handle the target monthly production capacity by end of 2007. Current monthly capacity is 40,000 units. Production will focus on NAND flash memory devices, which account for 60 percent of the company's sales.

Recently, the company has priced its convertible bonds $3.25 per unit, representing a premium of 25.25 percent over its recent share price. From this issue, Transcend could have funds of about $45.6 million. Part of these funds will be used for the Shanghai plant expansion.

Transcend will soon migrate to high-density NAND flash applications. The company recently introduced a 1Gbyte microSD card and 4Gbyte mini SecureDigital High Capacity card.
