TSMC Reports Second Quarter EPS of NT$2.80

Hsinchu, Taiwan, R.O.C., July 14, 2016 - TSMC today announced consolidated revenue of NT$221.81 billion, net income of NT$72.51 billion, and diluted earnings per share of NT$2.80 (US$0.43 per ADR unit) for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016.

Year-over-year, second quarter revenue increased 8.0% while net income and diluted EPS both decreased 8.7%. If the non-recurring gains in second quarter of 2015 were excluded, the second quarter 2016 net income and diluted EPS would have both increased by 17.2% year-over-year. Compared to first quarter 2016, second quarter results represent a 9.0% increase in revenue, and an 11.9% increase in net income. All figures were prepared in accordance with TIFRS on a consolidated basis.

In US dollars, second quarter revenue was $6.84 billion, which increased 11.4% from the previous quarter and increased 2.7% year-over-year.

Gross margin for the quarter was 51.5%, operating margin was 41.2%, and net profit margin was 32.7%.

Shipments of 16/20-nanometer accounted for 23% of wafer revenues, and 28-nanometer process technology accounted for 28% of total wafer revenues. Advanced technologies, defined as 28-nanometer and more advanced technologies, accounted for 51% of total wafer revenues.

"Second quarter results exceeded the high end of our guidance given three months earlier mainly due to demand increases in mid- and low-end smartphone segments and customer inventory restocking,” said Lora Ho, SVP and Chief Financial Officer of TSMC. “We expect our business in the third quarter will benefit from new product launches by major mobile device customers as well as continued inventory restocking by our customers. Based on our current business outlook and exchange rate assumption of 1 US dollar to 32.30 NT dollars, management expects overall performance for third quarter 2016 to be as follows”:

• Revenue is expected to be between NT$254 billion and NT$257 billion;

• Gross profit margin is expected to be between 50% and 52%;

• Operating profit margin is expected to be between 39.5% and 41.5%.

The management also states 2016 capital budget to be between US$9.5 billion and 10.5 billion.
