Winbond Monthly Revenue Report For January, 2001

(Taipei News) Winbond Electronics Corporation today announced initial revenue results for the month ending January 2001. Revenue for the month of January 2001 was NT $2.434 billion, a decrease of nearly 31 percent when compared with NT $3.541 billion over the same period last year.

The drop in revenue is attributed primarily to the continued decreasing in DRAM pricing, coupled with a reduction in product delivery days due to the Chinese Spring Festival (New Year). In general, consumer IC products for the General IC Business Group yielded good sales results due to a seasonal increase in demand. In the DRAM Business Group, preliminary 0.175 micron 256 Mb product samples were available with mass production expected to commence as early as March 2001. In addition, the combined production capacity of Fabs 4 and 5 are expected to increase from 33,000 wafers a month to 36,000 wafers a month. Overall, the company expects that the market will continue to experience additional (though limited) softening in DRAM pricing. Winbond will continue to execute its corporate strategy by improving production technology, aggressively controlling costs and actively developing new products. The Company's overall goal is to maintain long-term profitability and stable growth for the corporation.
