United Microelectronics Corporation (NYSE:UMC, TWSE: 2303))
("UMC" or "The Company"), a leading global semiconductor foundry, today
announced its consolidated operating results for the second quarter of
2018.

Second quarter consolidated revenue was NT$38.85 billion, up 3.6% QoQ
from NT$37.50 billion in 1Q18 and 3.5% YoY from NT$37.54 billion in
2Q17. Consolidated gross margin for 2Q18 was 17.2%. Net income
attributable to stockholders of the parent was NT$3.66 billion, with
earnings per ordinary share of NT$0.30.

Jason Wang, co-president of UMC, said, "In the second quarter, foundry
revenue increased 3.6% sequentially to NT$38.77 billion. Foundry
operating margin was 8.4%. Overall capacity utilization reached 97%,
bringing wafer shipments to 1.85 million 8-inch equivalent wafers. The
operating results from 2Q18 reflected full utilization from 8" and
mature 12" technologies, driven by strong demand in computing and
communications segments. This led to a first half EPS of NT$0.58 while
generating NT$13.42 billion in free cash flow. To further take advantage
of this healthy demand situation, our Board of Directors approved for
the company to supplement UMC's mature 12" process capacity through the
full acquisition of Fujitsu's 300mm MIFS Semiconductor fab in Japan. The
Board of Directors also approved a plan for our China-based operations
to apply for listing on the Shanghai Stock Exchange, led by UMC's
HeJian."

Co-president Wang continued, "We project third quarter demand
outlook to remain flat due to rising inventory levels from slower
smartphone digestion and the uncertainty surrounding the ongoing
US-China trade tensions. Despite the current market situation, UMC has
always focused on expanding our global scale to enhance customer value
by providing a diversified manufacturing base across Asia that is also
strategically positioned near our Taiwan headquarters for seamless
logistical support. UMC's intention to acquire MIFS Semiconductor and
list our China operations on the Shanghai Stock Exchange corresponds
with this global expansion strategy and will fuel our long-term foundry
competitiveness. We will continue to strive for manufacturing excellence
and better position ourselves globally to create benefits for our
shareholders, customers and employees."
