UMC Reports Fourth Quarter 2015 Results

Foundry revenue decreased 4.2% in 4Q15 to NT$33.59 billion, reflecting the IC industry inventory adjustment. Cost of goods sold was NT$26.87 billion, a decline of 5.4% QoQ, which resulted from a 8.5% decrease in other manufacturing costs due to softened demand.  4Q15 gross profit increased 1.0% to NT$6.98 billion, partly due to favorable foreign exchange rates. Operating expenses slightly decreased to NT$5.07 billion. R&D expenses represented 9.1% of operating revenues. Net other operating expenses fell to NT$34 million, resulting in operating income of NT$1.88 billion, up 91.6% from 3Q15.
