Based on our belief that "employees are our most important asset" and our principle of "maintaining balance between the interests of employees and shareholders," we provide competitive compensation packages for attracting and retaining the best talent. Our performance has excelled and our shareholders have gained above-average returns. The total compensation of our employees is better than the average of our peer companies in the semiconductor industry and the majority of other Taiwanese companies as well.

Our total compensation includes base salary, allowance, employees' cash bonus and profit sharing bonus, which is based on individual expertise, job responsibility, performance, commitment, and our company's operational achievement.

In order to maintain the competitiveness of our total compensation, we appropriately adjust employees' salaries annually, taking the results of global salary surveys, market salary scales, and economic indices into consideration. Salary adjustment, cash bonus and profit sharing for our employees are reviewed by the Board of Directors' Compensation Committee and are connected to our financial, operational performance and future growth. The cash bonus is distributed quarterly, as we believe this balances our employees' cash flow and provides a timely reward, and the employees' profit sharing bonus is distributed in the following year to encourage our employees' continuous contribution.

Despite recent slow growth in the global economy, TSMC achieved record-high operational performance and profit in 2015. In addition to a salary increase for all employees in April, the total amount of Taiwan employees' cash bonus and profit sharing bonus in 2015 is expected to exceed NT$37 billion. The total compensation of a newly-graduated engineer with a Master's degree in our company would be equal to 32 months' salary, including 12 months' base salary, 2 months' year-end fixed bonus and around 18 months' employees' cash bonus and profit sharing bonus, outperforming our industry peers.
