TAIPEI, Taiwan — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 29, 2020United Microelectronics Corporation (NYSE: UMC; TWSE: 2303) (“UMC” or “The Company”), a leading global semiconductor foundry, today announced its consolidated operating results for the third quarter of 2020.

Third quarter consolidated revenue was NT$44.87 billion, compared to NT$44.39 billion in 2Q20 and up 18.9% YoY from NT$37.74 billion in 3Q19. Consolidated gross margin for 3Q20 was 21.8%. Net income attributable to the stockholders of the parent was NT$9.11 billion, with earnings per ordinary share of NT$0.75.

Jason Wang, co-president of UMC, said, “During the third quarter, consolidated operating margin reached 15.9%, while utilization rate remained firm at 97%. Wafer shipments reached 2.25 million 8-inch equivalent wafers. During Q3, work-from-home and home schooling trends continued to contribute to stable end market demand for applications in wireless connectivity, power management ICs used in smartphones as well as high speed interface I/O controllers found in computing devices. In addition to demand stability across various end markets, our 28nm revenue grew QoQ as customer product tape outs continued throughout the quarter. Moving forward, we expect to see a sustained increase in the number of 28nm tape outs, which will further diversify our 28nm exposure to end markets and customers.”

Co-president Wang continued, “Looking into the fourth quarter, demand from consumer and computer related applications will lead to a minor increase in wafer shipments, propelled by ongoing work-from-home initiatives and home schooling. Furthermore, we have seen an uptick in semiconductor demand due to more silicon content in particular applications such as newly deployed 5G smartphones, IoT devices and other consumer products. Therefore, the current industry landscape appears to show favorable supply and demand dynamics towards foundry; hence, UMC will pursue a delicate balance in strengthening our customer relationships while securing interests for our shareholders to ensure our long term growth.”
