(1) Former fab of SiSMC, which was acquired from Silicon Integrated
Systems in July 2004.

(2) Former fab of UMCi, a UMC wholly owned subsidiary in December 2004
that was merged into UMC in April 2005

(3) One 6-inch wafer is converted into 0.5625(6 squared/8 squared)
8-inch equivalent wafer; one 12-inch wafer is converted into 2.25(12
squared/8 squared) 8-inch equivalent wafers.


Shipment and Utilization Rate(5)

Wafer shipments increased by 12% sequentially to 630 thousand 8-inch equivalent wafers from 564 thousand wafers. The utilization rate for the quarter was 65%, which was higher than the approximately 60% level that we expected in our previous guidance.

(1) 1Q05 utilization rate was calculated based on 1Q05 available
capacity, which is about 94% of total capacity after factoring in a 6%
productivity loss due to annual scheduled maintenance.
