Chip maker TSMC records sixth consecutive quarter of record sales – Companies


Chip maker TSMC has been posting record sales for six consecutive quarters, at a time when the semiconductor crisis continues to affect the industry. Thus, in the fourth quarter of 2021, the company should have recorded revenues of 15.8 billion dollars (13.96 billion euros).

This is the estimated value based on monthly sales data released by the company. Full information on the quarterly results and the full year will be released next Thursday, January 13th.

According to data provided so far by the company, the expected value of revenue for the fourth quarter, ended in December, is slightly above the “guidance”, as revenue was anticipated between 15.4 billion and 15.7 billion dollars. .

This revenue figure compares with the $14.88 billion recorded in the third quarter of 2021, an increase of just over 4%.

In December alone, TSMC’s sales amounted to US$5.6 billion, reflecting a 32.4% year-on-year increase. This was even the highest sales figure compared to the remaining months of 2021.

The company, which has Apple as one of its main customers, has been in the spotlight since the global crisis of “chips” took off. According to Charles Shum, an analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence, TSMC’s results could even lead “company earnings to grow by 14.6% to 180 billion Taiwan dollars”. The current conversion amounts to 5.7 billion euros.

TSMC shares closed Monday’s Taiwan session with gains of 1.42%. Monthly results were released after market close.
