ChipMOS REPORTS MARCH 2012 AND 1Q12 REVENUE

HSINCHU, Taiwan, April 16, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES (Bermuda) LTD. ("ChipMOS" or the "Company'') (NASDAQ: IMOS) today reported its unaudited consolidated revenue for the month and quarter ending March 31, 2012.

Revenue for the month of March 2012 was NT$1,513.0 million or US$51.3 million, an increase of 6.0% from the month of February 2012 and a decrease of 3.4% from the same period in 2011. On a quarterly basis, revenue for the first quarter of 2012 was NT$4,384.0 million or US$148.6 million, a decrease of 4.9% from the fourth quarter of 2011 and a decrease of 1.9% from the same period in 2011. This is in line with guidance the Company provided in its press release on March 16, 2012 for revenue in the first quarter of 2012 to be approximately flat-to-down in the single digits as compared to the fourth quarter of 2011, as continued strength in its LCD driver business was not expected to offset typical seasonality and expected softness in its DRAM and flash testing business. The Company remains very optimistic about its business prospects for 2012 and longer-term based on existing customer forecasts. All U.S. figures in this release are based on the exchange rate of NT$29.50 to US$1.00 as of March 30, 2012.
