The firm said net profit came in at TWD 470 million ($14.7 million, roughly Rs. 93 crores) in October-December, up 51.6 percent year on year. However, that is still down from the TWD 640 million profit in the previous three months.
Revenue rose 14.1 percent to TWD 47.87 billion, the first growth in three years, according to Bloomberg News, boosted by the launch of mid-tier handsets mainly targeting China and other emerging markets. The firm had forecast 12 percent growth.
The company is actively searching for new ways to appeal to customers and find fresh revenue streams with the launch of new products, it said in a statement in October.
With the release of the fourth-quarter figures, the company is expected to become profitable in 2014 after a rare loss in 2013.
In the 2013 third quarter, HTC swung to its first net loss since listing in 2002, as it fell out of the world's top 10 vendors and has been struggling to increase its foothold in the highly competitive smartphone market.
