UMC sales up 4% in August

September 7, 2007 – Taiwan foundry UMC says sales rose 3.8% in August from the previous month to about $315.8 million, and are 10.8% ahead of sales from August 2006.

Through the first eight months of 2007, UMC’s sales are running just below flat (-0.2%) at $2.076 billion vs. the same period in 2006. That’s an improvement, though — through the spring and partly into the summer, UMC’s YTD sales had been running 4%-5% below 2006 levels, but UMC has battled back with strong months in July (+15% M-M, +9% Y-Y) and now August.
