HTC denies ever speaking with ASUS about a buyout, and they don’t think they ever will

HTC decided to go on the defensive side in relations to talk about ASUS buying them out. The company released an official statement saying they strongly deny any rumors about ASUS buying them out.

To be clear, the initial report was never that a buyout was attempted, but rather ASUS has at least talked or thought about it internally. For HTC’s part, they maintain that they’ve never spoken with ASUS in regards to any of that.

They also looked to reassure folks that they weren’t willing to sell, though that’s not an unexpected feeling for a proud Taiwanese company. The company isn’t currently in dire straits or in jeopardy of tanking, and while there have been better times we imagine things aren’t bad enough that they’re scrambling for a knight to whisk them off their feet.

HTC still has a lot riding on their future, including the HTC Re Vive VR headset, a new line of consumer electronics, as well as their long-standing smartphone business (though the latter arm has seen better days). There’s still time to turn the boat around, so unless HTC suddenly starts bleeding money in a profuse manner we ought to do away with fears that they’re going anywhere.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
