UMC reported February sales dipping 16.5% in comparison with the prior year period. January sales were not much better, down 15.5% over January 2011. Similarly, consolidated net revenues for ASX slipped 15.6% over the prior year in January.
Demand does appear to be improving though. According to industry sources, UMC's capacity utilization rate in March may climb over the 90% mark.
Overall, the outlook for the semiconductor and equipment industry is neutral at this time. Weak sales through the first two months may be negated by the recent uptick in demand. Some Investors have been taking a wait and see approach with the industry to see if the latest demand improvements are an aberration or the beginning of a sustained period of growth.
