UMC Reports 2008 Second Quarter Results

Total capacity during the second quarter was 1,107 thousand 8-inch equivalent wafers. Compared to 1Q08, the increase of 7 thousand 8-inch equivalent wafers was due to capacity expansion at Fab 12A and some 200mm fabs. Estimated installed capacity in the third quarter is 1,140 thousand 8-inch equivalent wafers. The increase in estimated capacity during the third quarter is due to additional 12-inch capacity expansion for Fab 12i.

    Note 5: Estimated capacity numbers are based on calculated maximum
            output rather than designed capacity.  The actual capacity
            numbers may differ depending upon equipment delivery schedules,
            pace of migration to more advanced process technologies, and
            other factors affecting production ramp up.
