TSMC hikes prices


Increases and timings are said to vary from client to client.

Two price rises last autumn and this spring saw prices rise 10%.

TSMC had Q2 revenues of $13.3 billion and expects Q3 revenues of $14.6-14.9 billion for a gross margin of 50% and an operating margin of 40%.

It is said that TSMC is concerned about its future margins because of its $100 billion capex budget for 2021-3 and its moves to set up production fabs in Arizona and Japan
