Monthly Sales Report - April 2005
Hsinchu, Taiwan, May 10, 2005 - Vanguard International Semiconductor Corporation, a leading specialty IC foundry service provider, today announced April 2005 net sales of NT$ 853 million, up 11% compared with NT$770 million for the previous month. For the period of January to April 2005, accumulated net sales totaled NT$ 3,081 million.

On a year-over-year basis, net sales for April 2005 fell 36%. Accumulated net sales for January to April 2005 decreased 39% compared with the same period last year.

VIS spokesperson Mr. Daniel Chen noted, ˇ¨The increase in April net sales was caused by continuous growth in our wafer shipment. In addition, because of significantly lowered inventory level in the global semiconductor industry, we expect customer demand to pick up, and both utilization rate and wafer shipment to increase in the second quarter.ˇ¨

VIS will hold the annual shareholders' meeting at 9:00 a.m. on May 20, 2005.
