According to accounts filed with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission, Acer's net profit tumbled from $11.1 million at the end of 2005 to $6.3 million last year.

This represents a 43 per cent drop in net profit in the 12 months to December 31. Revenue slipped five per cent to $491.5 million.
