TSMC Reports Second Quarter EPS of NT$0.94

HSIN-CHU, Taiwan, July 30 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- TSMC (NYSE: TSM) today announced consolidated revenue of NT$74.21 billion, net income of NT$24.44 billion, and diluted earnings per share of NT$0.94 (US$0.14 per ADS unit) for the second quarter ended June 30, 2009.

Year-over-year, second quarter revenue decreased 15.8% while net income and diluted EPS decreased 15% and 13.9%, respectively. Compared to first quarter of 2009, second quarter results represent an 87.9% increase in revenue, and an increase of 1467.9% in net income and an increase of 1466.5% in diluted EPS. All figures were prepared in accordance with R.O.C. GAAP on a consolidated basis.

Gross margin for the quarter was 46.2%, operating margin was 33.9%, and net margin was 32.9%.

As a result of improved demand outlook, customers' companies launching new products, and customers' inventory restocking, second quarter saw a sharp rebound in the demand for semiconductors across all applications.

Advanced process technologies (0.13-micron and below) accounted for 65% of wafer revenues. 90-nanometer process technology accounted for 23% of wafer revenues, 65-nanometer 28%, and 45/40 nanometer, with wafer shipments tripling those of 1Q, exceeded 1% of total wafer sales.

"Both our macroeconomic forecast and booking trend indicate that we will have a good third quarter," said Lora Ho, VP and Chief Financial Officer of TSMC. "Based on our current business outlook, management expects overall performance for third quarter 2009 to be as follows":

    -- Revenue is expected to be between NT$88 billion and NT$90 billion;
    -- Gross profit margin is expected to be between 46.5% and 48.5%;
    -- Operating profit margin is expected to be between 35% and 37%.

Lora Ho further said: "Due to improved demand outlook for 2010 and a more aggressive technology strategy, TSMC 2009 capital expenditure is expected to be above both the 2008 expenditure of US$1.9 billion and the previously guided US$1.5 billion, and is expected to be around US$2.3 billion."
