("ChipMOS" or the "Company") (Taiwan Stock Exchange: 8150 and NASDAQ: IMOS), an industry leading provider of outsourced semiconductor assembly and test services ("OSAT"), today reported consolidated financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2023. All U.S. dollar figures cited in this press release are based on the exchange rate of NT$31.14 against US$1.00 as of June 30, 2023.

All the figures were prepared in accordance with Taiwan-International Financial Reporting Standards ("Taiwan-IFRS").

Revenue for the second quarter of 2023 was NT$5,444.1 million or US$174.8 million, an increase of 18.2% from NT$4,605.1 million or US$147.9 million in the first quarter of 2023 and a decrease of 20.5% from NT$6,851.7 million or US$220.0 million for the same period in 2022. Revenue growth in the second quarter of 2023 was led by improvements in the Company's memory and LCD driver businesses, which drove an increase in its overall utilization rate to 60% from 52% in the first quarter of 2023.

Net non-operating income in the second quarter of 2023 was NT$222.4 million or US$7.1 million, compared to NT$43.5 million or US$1.4 million in the first quarter of 2023, and NT$308.9 million or US$9.9 million in the second quarter of 2022. The second quarter of 2023 improvement reflects the benefit of positive foreign exchange impact of NT$194 million or US$6.2 million from the foreign exchange losses of NT$44 million or US$1.4 million in the first quarter of 2023 to the foreign exchange gains of NT$150 million or US$4.8 million in the second quarter of 2023. This was partially offset by a decrease in the gain on valuation of financial assets at fair value through profit or loss of NT$21 million or US$0.7 million. The difference between the second quarter of 2022 is mainly due to a decrease of share of profit of associates accounted for using equity method of NT$94 million or US$3.0 million, a lower foreign exchange gains of NT$75 million or US$2.4 million. It was partially offset by the positive valuation of financial assets at fair value through profit or loss impact of NT$56 million or US$1.8 million from loss on valuation of financial assets at fair value through profit or loss of NT$52 million or US$1.7 million in the second quarter of 2022 to gain on valuation of financial assets at fair value through profit or loss of NT$4 million or US$0.1 million in the second quarter of 2023 and the decrease of net interest expense of NT$16 million or US$0.5 million.

Net profit attributable to equity holders of the Company for the second quarter of 2023 was NT$628.5 million or US$20.2 million, and NT$0.86 or US$0.03 per basic common share, as compared to NT$202.4 million or US$6.5 million, and NT$0.28 or US$0.01 per basic common share in the first quarter of 2023. This compares to NT$1,320.6 million or US$42.4 million, and NT$1.82 or US$0.06 per basic common share in the second quarter of 2022. Net earnings for the second quarter of 2023 were US$0.56 per basic ADS, compared to US$0.18 per basic ADS for the first quarter of 2023 and US$1.17 per basic ADS in the second quarter of 2022.
