“Our second quarter business was impacted by the overall global economic conditions, which dampened the end market demand, and led to customers’ ongoing inventory adjustment,” said Wendell Huang, VP and Chief Financial Officer of TSMC. “Moving into third quarter 2023, we expect our business to be supported by the strong ramp of our 3-nanomenter technologies, partially offset by customers’ continued inventory adjustment.”

Based on the Company’s current business outlook, management expects the overall performance for third quarter 2023 to be as follows:


  • Revenue is expected to be between US$16.7 billion and US$17.5 billion;

 And, based on the exchange rate assumption of 1 US dollar to 30.8 NT dollars,

  • Gross profit margin is expected to be between 51.5% and 53.5%;
  • Operating profit margin is expected to be between 38% and 40%.
