Capacity[4] for Foundry Segment

Overall capacity during the fourth quarter was 1,577K 8-inch equivalent wafers. 28nm capacity expansion at Fab12A increased quarterly capacity from 174K in 3Q14 to 180K in 4Q14. The capacity profile upgrade at Fab12i decreased its 12" wafer capacity by 10K, reducing the fab's 4Q14 capacity to 135K. First quarter's estimated capacity will be approximately 1,583K 8-inch equivalent wafers, primarily from continuous 28nm capacity deployment at Fab12A, 40nm capacity expansion at Fab12i and manufacturing expansion at Fab8N.
