Safe Harbor Statement under the provisions of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995

This news release contains forward-looking statements, as defined in the safe harbor provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements, including without limitation, statements relating to our outlook for the third quarter of 2007; projected revenues and average selling prices (including Chartered's share of SMP), utilization rate, gross profit, net income and earnings per ADS; our expectation of growth of wafer shipments sequentially translating to an improved utilization rate for the third quarter; the revenue contribution from 0.13-micron and below technologies including those from 65nm as a percentage of our total business base revenues; our expectation that the utilization rate of 0.13-micron and above technologies tracking higher than the company average; the challenge at the leading-edge technologies due to weaker demand at 90nm node from computer sector and slower than expected production ramp of 65nm designs; and the negative impact to our breakeven utilization and profitability reflect our current views with respect to future events and financial performance and are subject to certain risks and uncertainties, which could cause actual results to differ materially from historical results or those anticipated. Among the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially are changes in the demands from our major customers, excess inventory, life cycle, market outlook and trends for specific products; competition from other foundries and pricing pressures; products mix; unforeseen delays, interruptions, performance level of our fabrication facilities; our progress on leading-edge products; changes in capacity plans, allocation and process technology mix; unavailability of materials, equipment, manpower and expertise; access to or delays in technological advances or our development of process technologies; the successful implementation of our partnership, technology and supply alliances (including our joint development agreements with IBM, Infineon, Samsung, Freescale and ST Microelectronics); the growth rate of fabless companies, the outsourcing strategy of integrated device manufacturers ("IDM") and our expectation that IDMs will utilize foundry capacity more extensively; demand and supply outlook in the semiconductor market and the economic conditions in the United States as well as globally. Although we believe the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are based upon reasonable assumptions, we can give no assurance that our expectations will be attained. In addition to the foregoing factors, a description of certain other risks and uncertainties which cause actual results to differ materially can be found in "Item 3. Key Information -- D. Risk Factors" in our 2006 annual report on Form 20-F filed with the US SEC. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which reflect management's current analysis of future events. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
