Expects great year


Taiwan's premiere foundry for hire, TSMC has posted its highest quarterly profit in two years. The company expects 2010 to be a record year, as the semi market is showing strong signs of recovery and demand is already picking up.

TSMC reported a net profit of $1.02 billion in Q4 2009, an impressive 260 percent jump year-on-year. Revenue was up 43 percent to just shy of $3 billion. TSMC Chairman Morris Chang said the results were much better than expected a year ago and that 2010 is going to be "historical."
