WIN Semiconductors Corp. outperformed its Taiwan competitors in terms of revenue. WIN's foundry is currently operating at almost its full manufacturing capacity and its revenue is keeping growing. Emerging applications in the WLAN and CDMA market have helped to drive revenue upwards recently.
This translated to a large increase in monthly revenue to NT$80 million for most recent two months, reaching its monthly cash flow break-even point this year. Revenue of September may exceed NT$100 million. WIN anticipates it is likely to hit annual targets of year 2004, NT$900 million and monthly break-even, around end of this year.
To meet customers' time-to-market requirement, a capital expenditure plan is being launched to increase WIN’s capacity.
For past one year WIN has been enhancing its competence. After a capital reduction its operation performance was recognized by existing shareholders and institutional/individual investors. A fund raising of NT$700 million was successfully closed end of August.
