by PR Newswire
HSINCHU, Taiwan, Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES (Bermuda) LTD. ("ChipMOS" or the "Company'') (NASDAQ: IMOS) today reported its unaudited consolidated revenue for the month and quarter ending December 31, 2012.
Unaudited consolidated revenue for the fourth quarter of 2012 was NT$4,867.4 million or US$167.6 million, a decrease of 5.3% from the third quarter of 2012 and an increase of 5.6% from the fourth quarter of 2011. This compares to guidance for revenue for the fourth quarter of 2012 to be approximately flat to 5% lower, as compared to 3Q12, and reflects further softness in the broader memory market, which impacts the Company's commodity DRAM assembly business, offset by continued growth in its LCD driver and mixed-signal businesses. Unaudited consolidated revenue for the month of December 2012 was NT$1,545.2 million or US$53.2 million, a decrease of 4.1% from the month of November 2012 and an increase of 5.8% from the same period in 2011. All U.S. figures in this release are based on the exchange rate of NT$29.05 to US$1.00 as of December 31, 2012.
