    TSMC today announced consolidated revenue of NT$105.51 billion, net income of NT$33.47 billion, and diluted earnings per share of NT$1.29 (US$0.22 per ADR unit) for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012.

    Year-over-year, first quarter revenue increased 0.1% while both net income and diluted EPS decreased 7.7%. Compared to fourth quarter of 2011, first quarter of 2012 results represent a 0.8% increase in revenue, and a 6% increase in both net income and diluted EPS. All figures were prepared in accordance with R.O.C. GAAP on a consolidated basis.


    In US dollars, first quarter revenue increased 2.7% from the previous quarter and decreased 1.3% year-over-year.

    Gross margin for the quarter was 47.7%, operating margin was 33.6%, and net margin was 31.7%.

    28-nanometer process technology accounted for 5% of total wafer revenues, 40-nanometer was 32%, and 65-nanometer accounted for 26%. These advanced technologies accounted for 63% of total wafer revenues.
    • Revenue is expected to be between NT$126 billion and NT$128 billion;
    • Gross profit margin is expected to be between 47% and 49%;
    • Operating profit margin is expected to be between 34.5% and 36.5%.
    Due to stronger demand for TSMC’s 28-nanometer technology and the pull-in of a 20-nanometer R&D process line, our estimate for 2012 capital expenditure is raised and is in the US$8-8.5 billion range.

    Most of that 5% probably is thanks to Kepler.

    Sarcasm... love it! Because we know GK104 are extremely limited, or at least being binned in some warehouse shelf. The fact AMD has been getting Tahiti, Pitcairn, Cape Verde products, and have them on shelves’ now. Heck 5% is pretty good when the word was there might have been 28Nm production stoppage end Jan-Feb.
    WarEagleAU says thanks.
