台積公司公佈九十年度財務預測

台灣積體電路製造股份有限公司今(30)日公佈該公司民國九十年財務預測,其中全年營收預估為新台幣1,490億3仟9佰萬餘元,而全年純益預估為新台幣257億3仟7佰萬餘元。以上財務預測數字與去年全年實際營收、純益相較,分別減少約10%以及60%。

台積公司發言人陳國慈資深副總經理表示,相較於去年全球半導體產業的大幅成長,今年上半年全球半導體業已確定處在嚴重的衰退局面;至於下半年的狀況,則因為景氣能見度不高,目前不易精確掌握,但為符合政府法令規定,台積公司仍根據所能掌握的資訊公佈今年度的財務預測。未來幾個月當中,台積公司將延續向來資訊公開、透明的作法,提出對產業景氣變化的看法。
