All U.S. dollar figures cited in this press release are based on the exchange rate of NT$30.46 against US$1.00 as of September 28, 2018.

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

Net revenue for the third quarter of 2018 was NT$5,005.2 million or US$164.3 million, an increase of 11.4% from NT$4,491.6 million or US$147.5 million in the second quarter of 2018 and an increase of 13.0% from NT$4,431.1 million or US$145.5 million for the same period in 2017. 

Net profit attributable to equity holders of the Company for the third quarter of 2018 was NT$439.6 million or US$14.4 million, and NT$0.56 or US$0.02 per basic common share, as compared to net profit attributable to equity holders of the Company for the second quarter of 2018 of NT$124.1 million or US$4.1 million, and NT$0.15 or US$0.005 per basic common share, and compared to net profit attributable to equity holders of the Company in the third quarter of 2017 of NT$162.0 million or US$5.3 million, and NT$0.19 or US$0.01 per basic common share.  Net earnings for the third quarter of 2018 were US$0.37 per basic ADS, compared to US$0.10 per basic ADS for the second quarter of 2018 and US$0.13 per basic ADS in the third quarter of 2017. 

S.J. Cheng, Chairman and President of ChipMOS, said, "We are pleased with third quarter results.  We achieved 11.4% revenue growth compared to Q2 and improved our gross margin to 19.5% from 16.4% over the same period.  We are benefitting from higher utilization levels, a more favorable product mix and higher prices for our services.  We expect continued revenue and profit growth led by existing customer programs, higher volume allocations and ongoing competitive share gains.  We also continue to benefit from higher customer demand in our TDDI and 12" fine pitch COF businesses.  TDDI test demand remains strong as smartphones shift to full screen panels and narrow bezel models, with test programs that run an average of 3 times longer than that of DDIC programs.  This puts our capacity at an even higher premium."

Silvia Su, Vice President of Finance and Accounting, commented, "ChipMOS is positioned for growth with higher utilization rates, healthy demand in our key markets and a strong balance sheet.  We ended the third quarter with a balance of cash and cash equivalents of US$199.2 million, a net debt balance of US$135.2 million, and a net debt to equity ratio of 23.5%.  This is after CapEx of $32.8 million in the third quarter, the majority of which was invested to meet higher customer demand levels for our DDIC related capacity, mainly for DDIC wafer test, and our mixed-signal product testing.  We finalized our Capital Reduction in October, which reduced our outstanding shares by approximately 15%, and we distributed NT$1.5 per common share to shareholders.  Separately, we distributed a cash dividend to shareholders in October of NT$0.3 per common share.  Our focus remains on improving profitability and building shareholders' value."

This press release may contain certain forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements may be identified by words such as 'believes,' 'expects,' 'anticipates,' 'projects,' 'intends,' 'should,' 'seeks,' 'estimates,' 'future' or similar expressions or by discussion of, among other things, strategy, goals, plans or intentions. These statements may include financial projections and estimates and their underlying assumptions, statements regarding plans, objectives and expectations with respect to future operations, products and services, and statements regarding future performance. Actual results may differ materially in the future from those reflected in forward-looking statements contained in this document, due to various factors.

About Non-Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("Non-GAAP") Financial Measures

To supplement the consolidated financial results presented in accordance with the Taiwan-IFRS, ChipMOS uses non-GAAP free cash flow, non-GAAP earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") and non-GAAP net debt to equity ratio in this press release. The non-GAAP free cash flow represents operating profit plus depreciation, amortization and interest income and less capital expenditures, interest expense, income tax expense and dividend. The non-GAAP EBITDA represents operating profit plus depreciation and amortization. The non-GAAP net debt to equity ratio represents the ratio of net debt, the sum of debt less cash and cash equivalent, divided by equity attributable to equity holders of the Company.  These non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. Other companies may calculate similarly titled measures differently.

The presentation of non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with the Taiwan-IFRS.

ChipMOS considers the use of non-GAAP free cash flow, non-GAAP EBITDA and non-GAAP net debt to equity ratio provides useful information to management to manage the Company's business and make financial and operational decisions and also to the investors to understand and evaluate the Company's business and operating performance. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please refer to the table captioned "Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Measures to the Nearest Comparable GAAP Measures" in this press release.
