Winbond Monthly Revenue Report For December, 2000

(Taipei News) Winbond Electronics Corporation today announced initial revenue results for the month ending December 2000. Revenue for the month of December 2000 was NT $3.088 billion, a decrease of 23.28 percent when compared with NT $4.025 billion over the same period last year. The accumulated revenue for year 2000, January to December, totaled approximately NT $48.02 billion, an increase of nearly 54.86 percent when compared with the accumulated total revenue of NT $31.009 billion over same period for year 1999. 

Due to the continued softening of DRAM pricing, annual maintenance costs associated with the Company facility and power supply blackouts in the Hsin-Chu industrial park that led a reduction in work days, Winbond's December revenue was less than the previous month. Most DRAM inventory sold out in November 2000 resulting in less product delivery for the month of December 2000. Currently, production capacity for Fabs 4 and 5 total about 33,000 pieces per month. Approximately 80 percent of product from Fabs 4 and 5 is manufactured utilizing 0.175-micron technology. Moreover, approximately 80 percent of products manufactured in Fabs 4 and 5 are 128 Mb products. This manufacturing strategy has enabled the Company to maintain production technology advantages over its competitors and cushion Winbond from the economic impact of lower DRAM pricing. The General IC Business Group is actively involved in the continued expansion of its sales efforts into network home appliances, wireless communication and multi-media markets. Therefore, the Company expects steady growth in the future, which should greatly improve Winbond's overall revenue.
