  Summary of Cash Flow:

During the quarter, TSMC generated NT$36.7 billion operating cash inflow mainly from net income of NT$22.2 billion and depreciation & amortization of NT$16.6 billion. This was partially offset by increases in working capital.

Net cash used in investing activities totaled NT$44.4 billion including (i) capital spending of NT$20.5 billion, (ii) a continued accumulation of NT$6.9 billion in short-term investments, and (iii) long-term investments of NT$3.5 billion in government and corporate bonds, NT$2.9 billion capital injection to TSMC (Shanghai), and NT$5.6 billion in a structured note and a NT$4.9 billion reclassification of such notes.

A net cash outflow of NT$5.1 billion in financing activities was largely attributable to the Company's NT$5.0 billion bond redemption.

  As a result, TSMC ended the quarter with a cash balance of NT$65.5 billion.

  Operating Cash Flow Trend:

Operating cash flow of NT$36.7 billion was slightly lower than the previous quarter due mainly to lower net income. To view V-2. Operating Cash Flow Trend, please visit http://www.tsmc.com/uploadfile/ir/quarterly/index_charts.pdf .
