("ChipMOS" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: IMOS), an industry leading provider of outsourced semiconductor assembly and test services ("OSAT"), today announced that its subsidiary ChipMOS TECHNOLOGIES INC., (Gre Tai Securities Market: Ticker 8150) ("ChipMOS Taiwan") has submitted an application to list on the Taiwan Stock Exchange ("TWSE"). ChipMOS Taiwan began trading on Taiwan's emerging stock board, the Gre Tai Securities Market, on April 19, 2013. The Company owns approximately 62.1% of the outstanding shares of ChipMOS Taiwan.
As previously disclosed, the Company and ChipMOS Taiwan are working with the underwriter, Yuanta Securities, towards satisfying eligibility requirements for listing ChipMOS Taiwan on the TWSE in the second quarter of 2014. Whether all of the requirements can be satisfied for the initial listing on the TWSE during the second quarter of 2014 depends in part on market conditions and other factors not within the control of the Company or ChipMOS Taiwan. Even if ChipMOS Taiwan obtains the required regulatory approvals, there is no guarantee that other listing requirements can be satisfied. For these reasons, there can be no assurance that ChipMOS Taiwan's shares will be listed on the TWSE or the initial listing can occur during the anticipated timeframe.
