The outcome of 2020 Corporate Governance Evaluation held by Taiwan Stock Exchange (“TWSE”) and Taipei Exchange (“TPEx”) were announced on April 30, 2021, in which 905 TWSE- and 712 TPEx-listed companies, totaling 1,617 participated. There were 12 companies, including WIN Semiconductors Corp. (WIN), ranked top 5% among TPEx-listed companies in corporate governance evaluation for 7 consecutive years (from 2014 to 2020). In addition, WIN got the honor of being ranked top 10% among electronics corporations with a market value exceeding NT$10 billion or more for 2 consecutive years. In the 2020 evaluation, WIN outperformed peers in “Protecting Shareholder, Rights and Interests and Treating Shareholders Equitably”, “Enhancing Board Composition and Operation”, “Increasing Information Transparency”, and “Putting Corporate Social Responsibility into Practice”, thus, won the honor again with excellent results.
We strive to achieve continuous innovation in technology to maintain competitiveness. Continuous improvement of the return on equity and implementation of corporate governance are our responsibilities and the foundation for sustainable development. In 2020, WIN was selected to join the DJSI World Index for the first time, along with other semiconductor industry leaders TSMC, ASE, and UMC. Meanwhile, we were also the winner of “Taiwan Corporate Sustainability Awards” and “2020 SGS CSR Award.” It is encouraging for WIN to gain recognition for our efforts in corporate governance and sustainability while also delivering decent operational performance.
