TSMC today declared combined income of NT$105.51 billion, net income of NT$33.47 billion, and watered down income per share of NT$1.29 (US$0.22 per ADR unit) for the first fraction ended April 31, 2012.
Year-over-year, first fraction income improved 0.1% while both net income and watered down EPS reduced 7.7%. Compared to fourth fraction of 2011, first fraction of 2012 results signify a 0.8% improve in income, and a 6% improve in both net income and watered down EPS. All results were prepared according to R.O.C. GAAP on a combined basis.
In US dollars, first fraction income improved 2.7% from the previous fraction and reduced 1.3% year-over-year.
Gross edge for the fraction was 47.7%, managing edge was 33.6%, and net edge was 31.7%.
28-nanometer procedure technological innovation included 5% of complete wafer income, 40-nanometer was 32%, and 65-nanometer included 26%. These advanced technological innovation included 63% of complete wafer income.
- Revenue is predicted to be between NT$126 billion and NT$128 billion;
- Major revenue edge is predicted to be between 47% and 49%;
- Operating revenue edge is predicted to be between 34.5% and 36.5%.
Due to more powerful demand for TSMC's 28-nanometer technological innovation and the pull-in of a 20-nanometer R&D procedure line, our calculate for 2012 capital investment is raised and is in the US$8-8.5 billion range.
