(Taipei News) March 07, 2003 - Winbond Electronics Corporation, a leading supplier of semiconductor solutions, today announced revenue results for the month of February 2003. Revenue for the month was approximately NT $1.901 billion, an decrease of 24.81 percent when compared with NT $2.528 billion over the same period last year. Accumulated revenue for 2003, January to February, was NT $4.505 billion, an decrease of nearly 12.92 percent, when compared with NT $5.173 billion over the same period last year. The drop in revenue was attributed primarily to a decrease in the number of working days which, in turn, was due to annual scheduled maintenance of the Company facility. This, coupled with continued uncertainties in the global economy, led to weaker demand for both business enterprise and consumer information hardware equipment. During this challenging economic cycle in the semiconductor business, the Company will continue to re-balance its product portfolio and focus additional efforts on its line of high performance products aimed at relatively stable priced markets. In terms of commodity DRAMs, the Company differentiates itself in the market by offering high-end DDR400 products. Winbond is now one of the few suppliers worldwide to manufacture this technology. As part of aggressive market efforts, the Company is trying to develop a solution for graphic cards. In addition, the 8Mb to 64Mb low-power Pseudo SRAMs have gained strong customer acceptance in the cellular phone market. With respect to low power DRAM, the Company provides low power DRAM that complies with JEDEC (Joint Electrical Device Engineering Council) standard. This standard calls for lower electricity consumption of mobile appliances and meets the requirements of the market�s most advanced mobile hand-held devices.
