Monthly Sales Report - February 2006
Hsinchu, Taiwan, March 10, 2006 ˇV Vanguard International Semiconductor Corporation, a leading specialty IC foundry service provider, today announced net sales of NT$ 851 million for February 2006, representing a 16.6% growth from NT$ 730 million of the same month last year. For the period of January to February 2006, accumulated net sales totaled NT$ 1,745 million, up 19.7% from NT$ 1,458 million last year.

VIS spokesperson Mr. George Liu said, ˇ§The decline in wafer shipment for February was mainly caused by seasonal factors and fewer working days, which also led to a 4.8% drop in net sales compared with NT$ 894 million of January 2006.ˇ¨

For the first quarter business outlook of 2006, our financial guidance is updated as a result of continuous conservative inventory level and changes of product line among customers, which in turn affected our production plan. Updates for the first quarter guidance include an 18% sequentially decline in wafer shipment, compared with the prior expectation of 15%, and utilization rate to drop from 75% to 70%. However, ASP and gross margin expectations remain the same, that is ASP to decrease by a high single percentage point sequentially, and gross margin is expected to be in the range of 26% ~ 28%.
