Foundry revenue grew to NT$36.00 billion and New Business segment recorded NT$1.67 billion, resulting in a consolidated revenue of NT$37.65 billion. Depreciation increased 7.3% QoQ to NT$9.12 billion, primarily from new 28nm tools deployed for capacity expansion. Other manufacturing costs were up 4.5% QoQ to NT$19.38 billion, mainly from higher wafer shipments in 1Q15. Operating expenses declined 13.4% sequentially to NT$4.91 billion, mostly from the decrease in R&D expenses as costs related to 28nm programs in production were transferred to COGS. Net operating income was NT$4.10 billion.
