The investment in foundry business is huge. UMC must have enough contracts on hand to justify an investment this big. Nonetheless, I always wonder what the ROI is like.

Looks like they need to save money and increase efficiency in every way to stay competitive - the way Samsung did to get ahead. They should start by generating revenue on their used equipment with a company like fabsurplus.com. See our website for used equipment trade at www.fabsurplus.com
