ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES (Bermuda) LTD. (" ChipMOS" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: IMOS), a leading provider of outsourced semiconductor assembly and test services ("OSAT"), today reported unaudited consolidated financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013. All U.S. dollar figures in this release are based on the exchange rate of NT$29.96 against US$1.00 as of June 28, 2013.

Net revenue for the second quarter of 2013 was NT$4,939.2 million or US$164.9 million, an increase of 11.7% from NT$4,420.7 million or US$147.6 million in the first quarter of 2013 and an increase of 2.3% from NT$4,829.3 million or US$161.2 million for the same period in 2012.

Net income for the second quarter of 2013 was NT$358.5 million or US$12.0 million, and NT$12.28 or US$0.41 per basic common share and NT$12.00 or US$0.40 per diluted common share, as compared to net income for the first quarter of 2013 of NT$363.6 million or US$12.1 million, and NT$12.58 or US$0.42 per basic common share and NT$12.31 or US$0.41 per diluted common share, and compared to net income in the second quarter of 2012 of NT$291.4 million or US$9.7 million, and NT$10.67 or US$0.36 per basic common share and NT$10.36 or US$0.35 per diluted common share.

The unaudited consolidated financial results of ChipMOS for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013 included the financial results of ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES INC. ("ChipMOS Taiwan"), ChipMOS U.S.A., Inc., ThaiLin Semiconductor Corp. ("ThaiLin") and MODERN MIND TECHNOLOGY LIMITED and its wholly-owned subsidiary ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES (Shanghai) LTD.

S.J. Cheng, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ChipMOS, said, "This was another strong quarter for us. We believe that we continue to outperform the industry due to our differentiated end market exposure and customer alignment within our target markets.  Our second quarter results further reflect the success of our integrated assembly and test business strategy, as our overall utilization rate reached 79%.  Demand is so strong in our LCD driver business that our Board of Directors has authorized an increase in our FY13 CapEx budget, allowing us to pull-in 6 months of planned CapEx investments from FY14.  The strategic decision to increase our CapEx now is due in part to strong customer demand and end production requirement for UHD TVs (4K/2K TVs), Smartphones and Tablet PCs.  We expect that preparing additional capacity earlier than planned will allow us to capture new growth opportunities we are seeing in our higher margin LCD driver business from both existing and new customers."

S.K. Chen, Chief Financial Officer of ChipMOS, said, "We generated US$13.0 million of free cash flow in Q2, and ended the quarter with a strong balance of cash and cash equivalents at US$370.1 million.  This is after Q2 CapEx of US$25.7 million. As a result, we improved our net cash position to US$59.4 million and improved our net debt to equity ratio to -14.1% as of June 30, 2013.  Our short-term loan balance increased to US$46.8 million from US$12.5 million in 1Q13 as we partially drew down credit lines denominated in U.S. dollars to deploy a hedge position to offset currency volatility.  We remain focused on balancing customer capacity demands and planned demand levels, with our objective of further strengthening our market position, and improving profitability and our balance sheet strength."
