HSINCHU, Taiwan, April 9, 2018 — (PRNewswire) — ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES INC. ("ChipMOS" or the "Company") (Taiwan Stock Exchange: 8150 and NASDAQ: IMOS), an industry leading provider of outsourced semiconductor assembly and test services ("OSAT"), today reported its unaudited consolidated revenue for the month of March 2018 and for the first quarter ended March 31, 2018. All U.S. dollar figures cited in this press release are based on the exchange rate of NT$29.10 to US$1.00 as of March 30, 2018.

Revenue for the month of March 2018 was NT$1,463.6 million or US$50.3 million, an increase of 20.9% from the month of February 2018 and a decrease of 7.5% from the same period in 2017. The revenue growth reflects strong demand from Niche DRAM, and 12" gold bumping for TDDI in March. The Company's memory test businesses were operating at full capacity with increasing demand from cryptocurrency-mining-related programs, and the automotive market.
