Shipment and Utilization Rate[4] for Foundry Segment

[4] Utilization Rate = Quarterly Wafer Out / Quarterly Capacity

Wafer shipments decreased 7% sequentially to 1,236K in 4Q13, compared to 1,329K 8-inch equivalent wafers in 3Q13. The drop in wafer shipments and the rise in total capacity resulted in an overall utilization rate of 79% for the quarter.

Capacity[5] for Foundry Segment

[5] Estimated capacity numbers are based on calculated maximum output rather than designed capacity. The actual capacity numbers may differ depending upon equipment delivery schedules, pace of migration to more advanced process technologies, and other factors affecting production ramp-up.

Capacity during the fourth quarter was 1,560K 8-inch equivalent wafers. The incremental increase in capacity was due to the expansion at Fab12i. The estimated installed capacity for the first quarter of 2014 will be 1,563K 8-inch equivalent wafers due to the capacity expansion on advanced nodes at Fab12A.
