TSMC Q2 profit Increased, 20nm Chips Start Shipping


Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC) posted record earnings in the second quarter, as the company has begun shipping chips built with its latest 20-nanometer manufacturing process.

The company reported net profits of NT$59.7 billion (US$1.99 billion) for the second quarter of 2014, increasing 24.7% sequentially and 15.2% on year.

EPS for the second quarter stood at NT$2.30 compared to NT$1.85 in the previous quarter and NT$2 a year earlier, according to TSMC.

Gross margin for the second quarter was 49.8%, operating margin was 38.6%, and net profit margin was 32.6%.

Shipments of 28nm process technology accounted for 37% of total wafer revenues in the second quarter, while 40/45nm processes accounted for another 19%, TSMC said.

TSMC makes processors for Qualcomm, Nvidia and Apple. This year, the company expects to maintain "double-digit growth" as it deploys more-advanced chip-making technology to build faster and more power-efficient processors.

Last month, TSMC began shipping chips built with its 20-nanometer process, company chairman Morris Chang said during a conference call to discuss the financial results. The 20-nanometer can offer 30 percent higher speeds or 25 percent lower power consumption over TSMC’s older 28-nanometer manufacturing technology.

The 20-nanometer process will make up 10 percent of the company’s chip sales in the third quarter, and 20 percent in the fourth, Chang said.
