HSINCHU, May 5, 2022 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES INC. (“ChipMOS” or the “Company”) (Taiwan Stock Exchange: 8150 and NASDAQ: IMOS), an industry leading provider of outsourced semiconductor assembly and test services (“OSAT”), today reported consolidated financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022. All U.S. dollar figures cited in this press release are based on the exchange rate of NT$28.62 against US$1.00 as of March 31, 2022.
All the figures were prepared in accordance with Taiwan-International Financial Reporting Standards (“Taiwan-IFRS”).
Revenue for the first quarter of 2022 was NT$6,725.2 million or US$235.0 million, a decrease of 1.0% from NT$6,791.4 million or US$237.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2021 and an increase of 4.0% from NT$6,465.3 million or US$225.9 million for the same period in 2021.
Net non-operating income in first quarter of 2022 was NT$229.0 million or US$8.0 million, compared to NT$319.3 million or US$11.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, and NT$25.3 million or US$0.9 million in the first quarter of 2021. The decrease compared to the fourth quarter of 2021 is mainly due to a decrease in the share of profit of associates accounted for using equity method of NT$240 million or US$8.4 million and the increase of financial costs of NT$3 million or US$0.1 million. This was partially offset by an increase in foreign exchange gains of NT$154 million or US$5.4 million. The increase compared to the first quarter of 2021 reflects the higher foreign exchange gains noted in the first quarter of 2022 and increased share of profit of associates accounted for using equity method, partially offset by the decrease of gain on valuation of financial assets at fair value through profit or loss.
Net profit attributable to equity holders of the Company for the first quarter of 2022 was NT$1,224.7 million or US$42.8 million, and NT$1.68 or US$0.06 per basic common share, as compared to NT$1,417.5 million or US$49.5 million, and NT$1.95 or US$0.07 per basic common share in the fourth quarter of 2021. This compares to NT$959.1 million or US$33.5 million, and NT$1.32 or US$0.05 per basic common share in the first quarter of 2021. Net earnings for the first quarter of 2022 were US$1.18 per basic ADS, compared to US$1.36 per basic ADS for the fourth quarter of 2021 and US$0.92 per basic ADS in the first quarter of 2021. The Company continues to focus on profitably supporting the higher demand levels it is benefiting from, as it works to offset the headwinds from global inflation and supply chain constraints.
Free cash flow for the first quarter of 2022 was NT$1,536.3 million or US$53.7 million, with a balance of cash and cash equivalents was NT$6,288.0 million or US$219.7 million.
