HTC expects revenues of between Tw$34bn and Tw$36bn for the three months to March, a fall from Tw$42.8bn a year earlier, the company said at an earnings conference.
The predicted sales compare with revenues of Tw$49.2bn in the fourth quarter of 2013.
In the three months to June last year the company reported its first quarterly loss, at Tw$3bn, but swung back to profitability in the fourth with a net profit of Tw$310m.

The Taiwanese firm held a 4.6% share of the global smartphone market in 2012, sharply down from 8.8% a year earlier.
Samsung held a 30.3% stake while Apple had 19.1%, according to research firm IDC.
As part of its efforts to boost sales, HTC has launched a range of mid-tier smartphones as analysts warn of waning demand for high-end gadgets.
