TSMC Clarifies Monolithic Power Systems Stock Transfer

HSINCHU, Taiwan, June 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, Ltd. (NYSE: TSM) today clarified the company's SEC filing of receiving 1.8 million shares of Monolithic Power Systems (MPS), characterizing the transaction as an investment distribution outcome and not a corporate strategic investment decision.

"Monolithic Power Systems (MPS) was a company invested in by InveStar Semiconductor Development Fund and InveStar Semiconductor Development Fund II since early 1999. These two venture capital funds are invested by TSMC and managed by InveStar Capital who makes investment decisions independently. As is a common practice in the venture capital industry, ISDF and ISDF II have made a distribution of their publicly listed shares back to the fund investors, from which TSMC International received 1,850,623 shares of MPS on May 29, 2008. These shares are classified as "financial asset at fair value through profit or loss" in TSMC's consolidated balance sheet before their disposal," said Lora Ho, Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, TSMC.

This transaction does not alter TSMC's business model or business principle.
