I. Letter to Shareholders

Dear Shareholders, Subject to the excessive production capacity in Mainland China, trade barrier protection and impact of international currency depreciation, the overall business environment remains challenging in 2014. However, to maintain steady profits and growth, the Company remains devoted to integrating corporate resources to optimize operational efficiency and strengthening marketing systems to adapt to market changes.

Accomplishments in 2014 Looking back at 2014, the Company's overall business profits have increased, as manifested in the steady growth of copper and steel sales, revenues received after the completion and delivery of the Nanjing property and non-core business profits. Net consolidated revenue for 2014 was approximately NT$162.987 billion, with consolidated gross profit of NT$7.563 billion, net income of NT$2.265 billion, and an earnings per share of NT$0.64. Wire and cable business: Although the prices of raw materials for copper wires have fluctuated substantially over the years, sales in copper wire have steadily increased, retaining its advantage because of appropriate hedging and the growing demand for copper wires and cables in Southeast Asia and Mainland China. The aggressive expansion of power lines and cables exports as well as the development of niche products contributed to a new record for the Company's production capacity being set. The Jiangyin steel cable plant continually enhanced its product added value, securing stable profits for the Company. Stainless steel business: Improved production capacity of the Taichung Harbor stainless steel rolled plant caused a growth of Taiwan's steelmaking capacity from 380,000 metric tons in 2013 to 397,000 metric tons in 2014, reflecting an increase of 17,000 metric tons. In Mainland China, through integration and collaboration with downstream strategic partners, the Company expanded its product specifications and increased the value-add of existing products to increase sales. Real estate business: The Taipei Xinyi headquarters exhibited an occupancy rate of near-full capacity, demonstrating excellent performance in both operations and profitability. Residential buildings in C2 land plot in Nanjing Walsin Centro were delivered in 2014 and profits were recognized.

Letter to Shareholders

Summary of 2015 Business Plan Looking ahead into 2015, the Company will continue focusing on core business activities and strengthening organizational and production capability to maximize production capacity and attain the targeted profit growth. 

With steady sales of copper materials in the wire and cable business, the Company will continue to target stable profits, monitor variations in raw material prices and financing cost, and control production, purchasing, and financial costs. Moreover, the Company will expand its export market and develop industrial power cable products to boost the growth of its power cable business.



In the stainless steel business, the Company will adjust the product combinations in China, increase orders for value-added products, and expand the certification market to increase sales. To reduce production cost, the Company will make continuous efforts to improve production efficiency and inventory management.



In the real estate business, the design of the D and AB land lots in Nanjing Walsin Centro have been completed and construction of these lots commenced in 2014. Subject to market demand, these land lots will be developed on a rolling basis.

Future Corporate Development Strategy, External Competition, Legal Regulation and Overall Business Environment Forward looking of year 2015, the factors having the most direct influence on the Company are the uncertainty of the recovering global economy, and in particular, China's continual restructuring, which hindered economic growth and led to price competition caused by supply–demand imbalance. In the face of various challenges in the global environment, the Company will improve its cable and wire business as well as the stainless steel business by making efforts to capitalize on its business decisions and management structure of division of labor, obtain precise market demand predictions, implement hedging of metal raw material prices, mitigate risks in transactions, increase production technological capability, strengthen product segmentation and engage in market expansion. To overcome the challenges presented in the real estate business, such as continued inflation in land prices and construction costs, the Company must accurately determine market demand and strengthen the marketing of the Company’s brand and products. Concurrently, the Company will also adequately review and perfect the corporate governance mechanism to ensure healthy business management and stable profitability, thereby solidifying the foundation of sustainable corporate management.

Corporate Governance Report

(9) Status of implementation of the internal control system 1. Statement on Internal Control Walsin Lihwa Corporation Statement on Internal Control Date: February 17, 2015 The Company hereby makes the following statement about its internal control system for the year 2014 based on its self-examination: 1. The Company is aware that it is the Board and managers' responsibility to establish, implement, and maintain an internal control system and the Company has set up such a system. The purpose of the system is to ensure the effectiveness and efficiency (including profitability, performance, and protection of assets) of the Company's operations, the reliability of its financial statements and compliance with relevant laws and regulations. 2. Internal control systems have their inherent limitations. No matter how well they are designed an effective internal control system can only reasonably ensure achievement of the above three objectives. In addition, an internal control system's effectiveness may change as circumstances change. Nevertheless, selfsupervision mechanisms have been built into the Company's internal control system. Once a deficiency is identified, the Company will immediately take corrective action. 3. The Company determines whether the design and implementation of its internal control system is effective by referring to the criteria stated in the "Regulations Governing Establishment of Internal Control Systems by Public Companies" (hereinafter, the "Regulations"). The Regulations provides measures for judging the effectiveness of the internal control system. There are five components of an internal control system as specified in the Regulations which are broken down based on the management control process, namely: (1) Control Environment, (2) Risk Evaluation, (3) Control Operation, (4) Information and Communication, and (5) Monitoring. Each component consists of several items. Please refer to the Regulations for the above items. 4. The Company uses the above criteria to determine whether the design and implementation of its internal control system is effective. 5. After a test of the Company's internal control system based on the above criteria, the Company is of the opinion that, as of December 31, 2014, its internal control system (including supervision and management of subsidiaries) is effective and therefore can reasonably ensure achievement of the above objectives, which include awareness of the degree to which operating results and goals are achieved, reliability of financial reporting and compliance with the law. 6. This statement shall become a principal part of the Company's annual report and prospectus and be made available to the public. If the content of the above is untruthful or certain important information is withheld, the Company shall be held liable pursuant to Articles 20, 32, 171, and 174 of the Securities and Exchange Act. 7. This statement has been approved on February 17, 2015 by the Board, with none of the 10 Directors present opposing it.

Business Overview

(2) Industry overview 1. Industry current trends and future outlook

(1)Wire and Cable Business  Copper wire materials Our copper wires are mainly sold to markets in Taiwan, Southeast Asia and China. The Taiwanese market has matured and the supply and demand is stable. Southeast Asia export is stable, with some increases. We have reorganized for the Chinese market, but due to rapid growth in GDP's of 7.3%, the demand for basic investment construction did not decrease, and demand for copper wire has increased due to automobile demand increase, so China is still our largest market for copper wire business.  Electric Cable Taiwan Market: The public sector has suffered from increased fuel prices and losses in general, so spending has been cut. In addition, power transmission projects are not easy to promote, so the demand for high voltage cable has decreased and the amount of sales has gone down. Demand is decreasing in all industries except construction, where the need for cables remains stable. Export: The Southeast Asian production line has an excess of production capability but is hindered by high tariffs in the zone. Chinese Market: Based on the 12th Five-Year Plan, China will invest heavily in thermal and hydroelectric power. China will also increase investment in basic needs such as high speed rail, nuclear power, and green energy. However, demand from private industries have slowed due to adjustments in the industrial production increase rate.

(2)Stainless Steel Business Material: Price of LME Nickel surged in Q2 due to Indonesia banning the transport of laterite nickel ore, but it then decreased due to LME's large inventory. According to research by the International Nickel Study Group, there was an excess of 51,600 tonnes of nickel supply in 2014. There is far more supply than demand, and something must be done to bring balance. The market is being brought down by the strong U.S. dollar and the lack of demand for stainless steel. Prices of nickel, chromium, molybdenum and steel scrap are still very low. Supply: In 2014 steel factories in Europe and the Americas scaled back, while factories in Asia expanded. China showed the greatest expansion by producing 21.6 million tonnes (51%) of crude steel, a 2.71 million-ton increase equivalent to 16.4% growth. Due to the lack of demand within China, steel factories have increased supply for the export market. In the major steel-producing nations of Taiwan, Japan, South Korea and India, currencies are weak and price competition is fierce. Demand: On a global scale many nations are in recession while the U.S. is slowly increasing. Stainless steel demand has slowed due to delayed investments in basic construction and weak spending power; there is more supply than demand on the market. As for 2015, the IMF predicts that: the demand will likely remain low due to imbalance in global economic growth and political unrest, in addition to possible new risks brought by plunging oil prices; the nickel ore inventories of nickel and iron suppliers in China are being depleted, so the nickel market may see its first shortage in five years; there is still greater supply than demand in the steel market, and each nation is employing anti-dumping, anti-subsidies, and higher tariffs to protect themselves, so maintaining the current market and opening up new markets will be difficult.

(3)Real Estate Business  Walsin Real Estate Procurements The volume of land transactions in Nanjing reached 6.11 million square meters in 2014, a 48.3% increase from 2013 and a new overall record that shows branded real estate corporations are interested in further developments in Nanjing. Supply and demand of residential units are balanced, but there is more supply than demand for office and commercial buildings, putting more pressure on sales. For the near future, the real estate market in Nanjing will be further divided. City-center developments with convenient surroundings will become rarer, the market and asset values will be further concentrated, but overall demand will keep long term growth stable. The market will become more transparent and regulated as the real estate industry matures. The advantage of running a real estate company that focuses on customer demands and product planning will become more obvious, large development projects will also grab more attention in the market.

3. The state of the economy, industrial trends, and commodity competitions (1)Wire and Cable Business  Copper Material Following a strong recovery of the U.S. economy in 2014 and a relatively stable global economy, demand for electromechanical and light industrial products from overseas and Taiwan markets remains steady. Demand for copper strips from Southern China remains unchanged. The Company's market share remains on top in both domestic (Taiwan) and export (Southern China) markets. Despite the decrease in China's economic growth in 2014, overall copper demand increased by 6% due to factors such as industrial structural adjustment and controls in the real estate industry. Due to structural adjustment, it is anticipated that the demand growth rate in 2015 will fall behind GDP growth by about 6% to 7%. The Company's production line in China continues to operate in full capacity and remains competitive.  Electric Cable In recent years, we have seen a sharp decline in orders from Taiwan Power Company, weakening demand from public construction and the civil market, and supply continues to exceed demand. Competitors are expanding their export market shares and focusing on the development of niche products to sustain capacity utilization rate. Mergers and consolidations are on the rise in order to strengthen competitiveness. Rising awareness of global carbon dioxide emissions reduction and environmental protection drives up

66

demand for electric cables in Green Industries such as wind and solar energy. There is also an increase in demand for fire-resistant building materials in reaction to the Building Amendment Act. The top 3 priorities in China's infrastructure planning are transportation (tramway/high-speed rail/railway), electrical grid, and real estate and construction industry.  Prestressing steel Despite the fact that market demand was pushed up by extra investment in fundamental infrastructure from countries with large prestressing steel consumption in late 2014, supply still exceeds demand at present. Steel strands are facing fierce competition from upstream suppliers at public procurement. The open tendering procedure fuels price competition, making low price offer crucial to the winning of bids. Galvanized wires use raw materials (mainly from China) with enhanced strength, torsional elasticity and excellent corrosion resistance that can be used in longer bridge spans. However, under the pressure of market competition and financial strain, price is likely to slip in the near future.

(2)Stainless Steel Business  Billet/wire rod/plate material Global growth for stainless steel wire rods and straight rods showed a gradual plateauing trend. However, due to the growing complexity of factors that have interfered with the market in recent years, consumption fluctuations are significant and there is a high degree of difficulty in making accurate predictions. Wire rod demand growth mostly originated in China, India, and Southeast Asia. Overall growth prospects in Europe and North America are limited and capacity expansion is concentrated in Asia. Oversupply and price competition continue to be the trends of the market. Capacity of plate materials in China continues to expand. The use of nickel pig iron for steel production to drive cost down has become a global trend. Companies with poor business performance will gradually be pushed out of the market. Cost of raw materials fluctuated severely in 2014, resulting in an unbalanced supply and demand situation that has caused product price to fall. Fortunately the Company's Yanshui plant has responded to the situation quickly, and with its core ability of continuous improvement, the Company is able to uphold stability during global slowdown. The Company is anticipated to maintain the product sales price elasticity in 2015 to quickly respond to raw material fluctuations and adjust the stockpile preparations as well as production schedules in order to reduce risks. In addition, the Company's Yantai plant will gradually adjust its product portfolio in the hope of increasing market share through product differentiation. The Company will continue to cultivate China's domestic market through the supply of quality consistent billets and a replication of its successful experience in Taiwan. The capacity of long whole strip category stainless steel in China is oversupplied, product quality for Category 1 and Category 2 steels continues to improve and export volume is also growing. Currency fluctuations will affect the stability of market price and volume, creating fiercer competition. Rivals in the steel industry are also adopting new strategies to reinforce competitiveness. For example, steelmakers in India are moving downstream, while Korean steelmakers are focusing more on domestic consumption. The Company will strengthen relationships with clients in order to consolidate its market share. Stainless steel sheets: The market's unbalanced supply and demand situation is worsening and currency fluctuations have worked less in favor of quotation in U.S. dollars. The Company is expecting an increase of niche product orders and will endeavor to expand its market share in Thailand and cultivate the Indonesian market. Development in the U.S. will focus on the super-hard film market, primarily coil springs and fasteners.

Business Overview

 Stainless steel seamless pipe As China's economy decrease steepens, new construction projects from Sinopec Group and CNPC will decline dramatically. The increasing popularity of shale gas in North America pushes up demand in 2015. The Middle East and India are identified as potential markets. Affected by the European Union's antidumping regulations, demand from the European market remains low. Short delivery time and price cuts are the main competition faced by steelmakers as they are under pressure to fill up capacity gaps.

(3)Real Estate Business  Walsin Real Estate Procurements Current market trends in real estate development lean toward construction of multi-use developlments that comprise residential and office buildings, providing commercial, cultural, entertainment and leisure functions. Creating a one-stop shop for urban living through multiplying building values and integrated city functions is currently the mainstream of high value-added projects in the real estate industry. These residential buildings will embrace high-quality homes and people-oriented designs. There will also be clear differentiation of the mid- and high-end office buildings. Future development trends in commercial shopping centers would be scalization, centralization and deretailization. In terms of competition, since city centers are focused with high-end real estate projects, land supply has always been sparse. Therefore, the number of projects launched is relatively small and the price elasticity is low. Walsin Centro is located at the heart of a new city where two metro lanes intersect, and its location and position are unique. Development projects in nearby areas are either entering into substantial development phases or are about to be launched. Located at the heart of the new city, Walsin Centro will become the center and landmark of the city.

2. Overview of supply and demand and projected growth (1)Wire and Cable Business  Copper Material Taiwan's market will be affected by the economic recovery timeline. In 2014, domestic demand for copper wire was approximately 400,000 tons, a figure which is projected to remain flat or grow marginally in 2015. In 2014, the Chinese market used approximately 5 million tons of copper for electric wires and cables, and copper consumption growth dropped. It is estimated that China will continue with adjustment of its industry structure and the GDP growth rate will stay at approximately 7% in 2015, and it is anticipated that copper consumption growth will slow down to an annual total of approximately 5.3 million tons.  Electric Cable Taiwan Market: Demand in the construction market has eroded. Overall, the market demand will start on a downward slope. Chinese Market: In spite of an intensely competitive market in terms of production and sales, the Company has maintained double-digit sales growth in China since 2010. Looking forward to opportunities in urbanization and grid optimization, the Company expects to have the potential for upward growth. International market: The wire and market remains in an oversupply state. In addition, it is unlikely to see an exploding growth in infrastructure in developed countries or investment in new facilities. The emerging ASEAN market is the only region that consistently reports definite growth but is subject to varying degrees of country risk.

(2)Stainless Steel Business  Billet/wire rod/plate material

Billet Products at the Company's plant in Yantai, China are gradually shifting toward greater diversification and customized development. The Company has also been working to expand niche steel products to enhance the Company's overall performance and market share. Quality has also improved rapidly as a direct result of Taiwan's salt-water technique. Although the primary market, China, remains in an oversupply state, production has gradually increased with the growth of related business sales.

Wire Rod China continues with capacity elimination and monetary control, but India's subsidy policy and other countries stepping up the effort to enter FTAs still create more competitive market conditions. The global economic recovery is sluggish and the demand remains weak. The mismatch between production and sales continues to be severe in 2015.

Plate materials In 2015, the Company will prepare the slabs according to market demand and develop the potentially profitable forging industry. No.1 will complete the range in terms of steel type and specifications. 2D and 2B will regard the domestic and foreign pipe manufacture industry as the main target. Domestically, the goal is to replace material imports.  Stainless steel cold finishing rods The North American economy has recovered and the outlook for demand in 2015 is optimistic. Europe still mostly depends on materials supplied locally, meaning there is relatively less room for imported materials. Demand in the Korean market remains stable. Price wars in the Southeast Asian market are escalating due to increasing volatility in the exchange rates for the Japanese Yen and the Korean Won. Walsin is currently one

73

Business Overview

of the three major suppliers in the Australia and New Zealand markets. The Company's products are of good quality, have good prices and a strong market presence and possess high potential for future growth.  Stainless steel seamless pipe Demand in 2015 is forecasted to remain unchanged from 2014. In the wake of the lifting of the ban on China's nuclear power industry, nuclear grade pipe procurement volume is estimated to be 1600 tons in 2015. The petrochemical industry is expected to see less new project commencement in 2015. India's demand for electricity and boiler tubes is strong and has potential for development. Demand for automotive pipes s expected to maintain the growth trend for the next five years.

(3)Real Estate Business  Walsin Real Estate Procurements In 2014, the housing market of Nanjing has continued to develop in a stable, healthy and consistently growing manner. With respect to office property, there are few premium products and projects that are located in developed areas and can adapt to and meet market demand. Demand that cannot be effectively satisfied will create favorable conditions for the sale of Hexi office building in 2015. As the resident population in the Hexi area grows at a steady pace, consumer demand for a commercial shopping center will continue to accumulate and develop into a stable economy. Future outlook: Although China's real estate control policies have shifted from administrative restriction to market regulation, the short-term real estate transaction prices and volume will continue to remain stable. Overall, China's moderate inflation, the next wave of urbanization for the rural population, and the fast growth of the third sector, including the financial services industry, have long-term preservation and appreciation effects for China's real estate market as well as maintain long-term stable real estate developments.

(2) Future countermeasures (including improvement measures) and possible expenses: Despite the large amount of manpower, materials, and funding invested in environmental protection to comply with international benchmarks over the years, Walsin Holdings was still fined for pollution. To keep pollution under adequate control, the Company requires factories in Taiwan and overseas to step up self-regulation to avoid human errors and to implement economically feasible environmental management projects. Internal audit should be used as a means to assist in reinforcing self-regulation and horizontal development. Environmental investment plans and management measures are as follows: 1. Obtained ISO-14001 environmental management certification: In conformance with international environmental conventions, plants in Taiwan (the Xinzhuang plants 1 and 2, Yangmei copper wire plant, Taichung plant, and Yanshui plant) and in China (Shanghai power plant, Nanjing plant, Jiangyin plant, Yantai plant and Changshu plant) have obtained ISO 14001:2004 environmental management certification. The Company have continued with improvements and enhanced environmental management performance in stages. 2. Air pollution management: Comply with the air pollution control laws in Taiwan and in China and apply for permits for fixed (atmospheric) pollution source ranges that are successively announced. The various plants in Taiwan and in China have obtained operating permits for processes and facilities, reducing atmospheric emissions. 3. Greenhouse gas emission and campaign for reduction: Greenhouse gas emission from the plants in Taiwan were 339,052.03 (tons of Co2 e/year) for 2013 and 336,346.84 (tons of Co2 e/year) for 2014. Emission increased because the Taichung plant began operations and production of the various plants has increased. Factories in China have started implementing energy saving and carbon dioxide reduction measures since China implemented the 12th Five-Year Plan and required a reduced level of energy consumption. The factories in China expect to reduce energy consumption by 5% in five years. To properly manage greenhouse gas emission and campaign for reduction, the head office regularly collects emission data from the business units, and the divisions/departments combine and promote various energy conservation and carbon reduction programs, technical research projects, and carbon credit management studies. In terms of international exposure, the Company plays an active role in the World Steel Association and compares its own greenhouse gas emission and carbon reduction performance with benchmark firms in order to find room for improvement and continue to reduce carbon emission. The goal is to achieve steady reduction. Furthermore, the Yanshui plant in Taiwan completed greenhouse gas emission inventory and internal and external auditing for 2013 (according to ISO14064) 4. Wastewater treatment: The Company has obtained effluent permits for Xinzhuang plants 1 and 2, Yangmei copper wire plant, Optoelectronics Yangmei plant and the Yanshui plant and will implement recycling efforts. To comply with the

84

environmental authority's regulations, the wastewater discharge systems for Xinzhuang plants 1 and 2 and the Yanshui plant have been modified so that most discharged water is recycled and reused after degreasing and grit removal procedures as well as effluent monitoring, control and measurement. The Taichung stainless steel plant has already obtained nanotube approval certification and connection documentation for the export processing zone, which is handled by the sewage treatment plant of the Export Processing Zone Administration, Ministry of Economic Affairs, Chung Gang branch. To ensure effective utilization of limited water resource, factories modify their production processes to reduce water consumption and improve wastewater recycling systems as part of the effort to increase the production wastewater recycling rate. Average pollutant concentration in wastewater discharged by the factories in 2014 met the effluent criteria. 5. Strict control of industrial waste: In response to the Company's "no waste" policy, the factories have formulated waste reduction in production processes while industrial waste is carefully stored based on category. Waste that can be reused is recycled and suitable technology will be explored for the existing equipment in the factories. Industrial waste will be transformed to materials based on the principle of the right tool for the right job and excellent management skills. The materials can then be used in the factories and create more value. Other waste is eliminated through waste disposal agencies approved by the environmental authority. The Company will also evaluate outsourcing reusing or processing. For the purpose of effectively tracking waste, the Company chooses waste management and reuse service providers with care to ensure all waste is handled or reused according to the law. 6. Improve energy use efficiency: With respect to corporate social responsibility, our environmental protection objective is "to implement effective energy conservation and carbon reduction and to start a green cycle of production". Natural gas is the primary form of energy consumed directly in the production process. We will update the old fuel equipment and switch to high-efficiency and clean energy systems that use electric heating, pure oxygen (Yanshui steel plant), natural gas (Yangmei copper wire plant), or liquefied petroleum gas. 7. Energy conservation and carbon reduction: The Company has implemented energy saving and carbon dioxide reduction measures since 2012. The factories set energy saving targets and directions at the beginning of each year, and improve energy efficiency by saving water and reducing waste. Recycling and reuse measures are implemented to reduce greenhouse gas emission. 18 carbon reduction proposals were made in 2014 and reduced a total of 7,017.525 (tons of Co2 e/year) in carbon dioxide emission. Energy saving programs at the factories in Taiwan are described as follows: (1) Improvement of tap water consumption controls in factories (2) Improvement of 350kV lighting in shielding rooms (3) Improvement of energy saving mechanisms on compressor cooling pumps (4) Improvement of boiler efficiency (5) Improvement of 350kV lighting in shielding rooms (6) Improvement of energy saving mechanisms on compressor cooling pumps (7) Utilization and management of air compressors (200HP quota + wiring inspection and testing) (8) Lighting utilization and management and switch to energy saving lighting fixtures (9) Utilization and management of air conditioning systems (temperature control + equipment enhancement) (10) Utilization and management of production equipment (improvement of gas consumption for copper melting) (11) Connection of main chilled water pipes (12) Connection of main pure water pipes (13) Turning off fans in chilling areas during shutdown for process change.

Business Overview

(14) The temperature is explicitly reduced to 300 degrees Celsius and the fans in furnace areas (15) Raising LD life to 33 times (16) Addition of waste heat recycling systems to heat boiler feedwater (17) Redesign of batch furnace F.G (18) Improvement of 460V circuit power factor in straight steel bar factory 8. Promoting green manufacturing: (1)Patented slag recycling technology Slag is a side product of billet production at the Yanshui plant in Taiwan and classified as No. 14 electric arc furnace slag under the Regulations Governing Administration of Reuse of Enterprise Waste. The authority has announced that such material can be used as part of the raw materials for cement and cement products. The percentage of reused slag as raw material for cement is significantly lower. The slag from Yanshui plant still contains some useful metals. Mixing such slag into concrete or cement or any other form of construction material without filtering will be a waste of resources, and filtering flag is time consuming and not cost efficient. As a result, generation of slag is one of the key factors in raw material consumption for steel plants apart from billet production. The Company invests in research and innovation of effective metal recycling and reuse processes with the goal of developing a resource classification procedure for electric arc furnace slag that is more practical and environmentally friendly, recycles resources and can reduce production cost. Onsite engineers have completed a classification and processing technology for electric arc furnace slag, which can effectively reduce industrial waste and increase effective resource utilization. Related specialty technologies have also been patented. (2)Green product certification 600V PVC electric wire products obtained SGS carbon footprint certification in September 2013 and Taiwan Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers' Association's (TEEMA) carbon footprint label in December 2013, making the Company Taiwan's first company whose 600V PVC wire products had obtained carbon footprint certification and carbon footprint label. Purpose of certification: It is a Company's corporate social responsibility to invest in the development of green products to reduce carbon emission. Products are made to pass carbon footprint inventory, carbon footprint label certification and to receive eco-label certification in order to prove that Walsin Lihwa's products comply with the requirements of energy conservation and carbon reduction and environmental conservation and are approved by international standards and the Environmental Protection Administration. The main reason for choosing 600V PVC electric wire products for carbon footprint auditing is that 600V electric wires are commonly used in residential and office environments. They can be seen everywhere in the everyday life and can help raise awareness of environmental conservation in the population. Carbon emission in the product life cycle is closely monitored. Carbon inventory and management is enforced for greenhouse gas emission generated in activities including raw material acquisition, manufacturing, shipping and sales, use, and waste recycling. The products obtained SGS carbon footprint certification in September 2013 when the result showed an equivalent of 2.39 kgCO2e per kilogram of 600V PVC. The products obtained Taiwan Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers' Association's (TEEMA) carbon footprint label in December 2013, making the Company Taiwan's first company whose 600V PVC wire products had obtained carbon footprint certification and carbon footprint label. The products can effectively help consumers reduce the impact on the environment when they use the products, and therefore achieve the goal of energy conservation and carbon reduction and related benefits.

86

(3)Receiving eco-label certification The Company applied for eco-label certification for environmentally friendly electric wire products, 600V EM-IE, in 2014. 600V EM-IE offers a new green option for customers looking for electric wire products. The main reason for developing the environmentally friendly electric wire products, 600V EM-IE, and choosing 600V PVC electric wire products for carbon footprint auditing is that 600V electric wires are commonly used in residential and office environments. They can be seen everywhere in the everyday life and can help raise awareness of environmental conservation in the population. It is Walsin Lihwa's corporate social responsibility to invest in the development of green products to reduce carbon emission. 600V PVC electric wire products are made to pass carbon footprint inventory, carbon footprint label certification and to receive eco-label certification in order to prove that Walsin Lihwa's products comply with the requirements of energy conservation and carbon reduction and environmental conservation and are approved by international standards and the Environmental Protection Administration.

(Concluded) Unless stated otherwise, the above New IFRSs are effective for annual periods beginning on or after the respective effective dates.

Except for the following, the initial application of the above 2013 IFRSs version and the related amendments to the Regulations Governing the Preparation of Financial Reports by Securities Issuers has not had any material impact on the Company’s accounting policies: 1) Revision to IAS 28 “Investments in Associates and Joint Ventures” Revised IAS 28 requires when a portion of an investment in associates meets the criteria to be classified as held for sale, that portion is classified as held for sale. Any retained portion that has not been classified as held for sale is accounted for using the equity method. Previously, when a portion of an investment in associates meets the criteria to be classified as held for sale, the entire investment is classified as held for sale and ceases to apply the equity method.

126

2) IFRS 13 “Fair Value Measurement” IFRS 13 establishes a single source of guidance for fair value measurements. It defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value, and requires disclosures about fair value measurements. The disclosure requirements in IFRS 13 are more extensive than those required in the current standards. For example, quantitative and qualitative disclosures based on the three-level fair value hierarchy currently required only for financial instruments are extended by IFRS 13 to cover all assets and liabilities within its scope. The fair value measurements under IFRS 13 will be applied prospectively from January 1, 2015. 3) Amendments to IAS 1 “Presentation of Items of Other Comprehensive Income” The amendments to IAS 1 require items of other comprehensive income to be grouped into those that (1) will not be reclassified subsequently to profit or loss; and (2) will be reclassified subsequently to profit or loss when specific conditions are met. Income taxes on related items of other comprehensive income are grouped on the same basis. Under current IAS 1, there were no such requirements. The Company will retrospectively apply the above amendments starting from 2015. Items not expected to be reclassified to profit or loss are remeasurements of the defined benefit plans. Items expected to be reclassified to profit or loss are the exchange differences on translating foreign operations, unrealized gains (loss) on available-for-sale financial assets, cash flow hedges, and share of other comprehensive income (except the share of the remeasurements of the defined benefit plans) of associates accounted for using the equity method. However, the application of the above amendments will not result in any impact on the net profit for the year, other comprehensive income for the year (net of income tax), and total comprehensive income for the year. 4) Revision to IAS 19 “Employee Benefits” Revised IAS 19 requires the recognition of changes in defined benefit obligations and in the fair value of plan assets when they occur, and hence eliminates the “corridor approach” permitted under current IAS 19 and accelerates the recognition of past service costs. The revision requires all remeasurements of the defined benefit plans to be recognized immediately through other comprehensive income in order for the net pension asset or liability to reflect the full value of the plan deficit or surplus. Furthermore, the interest cost and expected return on plan assets used in current IAS 19 are replaced with a “net interest” amount, which is calculated by applying the discount rate to the net defined benefit liability or asset. In addition, the revised IAS 19 introduces certain changes in the presentation of the defined benefit cost, and also includes more extensive disclosures. 5) Amendments to IFRS 7 “Disclosure - Offsetting Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities” The amendments to IFRS 7 require disclosure of information about rights of offset and related arrangements (such as collateral posting requirements) for financial instruments under enforceable master netting arrangements and similar arrangements.

127

Financial Information

6) Amendments to IAS 32 “Offsetting Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities” The amendments to IAS 32 clarify the requirements relating to the offset of financial assets and financial liabilities. Specifically, the amendments clarify the meaning of “currently has a legally enforceable right of set-off” and “simultaneous realization and settlement”. 7) Annual Improvements to IFRSs:

2009-2011 Cycle

Several standards including IFRS 1 “First-time Adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards”, IAS 1 “Presentation of Financial Statements”, IAS 16 “Property, Plant and Equipment”, IAS 32 “Financial Instruments: Presentation” and IAS 34 “Interim Financial Reporting” were amended in this annual improvement. The amendments to IAS 1 clarify that an entity is required to present a balance sheet as at the beginning of the preceding period when a) it applies an accounting policy retrospectively, or makes a retrospective restatement or reclassifies items in its financial statements, and b) the retrospective application, restatement or reclassification has a material effect on the information in the balance sheet at the beginning of the preceding period. The amendments also clarify that related notes are not required to accompany the balance sheet at the beginning of the preceding period. The amendments to IAS 16 clarify that spare parts, stand-by equipment and servicing equipment should be recognized in accordance with IAS 16 when they meet the definition of property, plant and equipment and otherwise as inventory. The amendments to IAS 32 clarify that income tax relating to distributions to holders of an equity instrument and to transaction costs of an equity transaction should be accounted for in accordance with IAS 12 “Income Taxes”. The amendments to IAS 34 clarify that a measure of total liabilities for a reportable segment would be disclosed in interim financial reporting when such amounts are regularly provided to the chief operating decision maker of the Company and there has been a material change from the amounts disclosed in the last annual financial statements for that reportable segment. 8) Recognition and measurement of financial liabilities designated as at fair value through profit or loss In accordance with the amendments to the Regulations Governing the Preparation of Financial Reports by Securities Issuers, for financial liabilities designated as at fair value through profit or loss, the amount of change in the fair value attributable to changes in the credit risk of that liability is presented in other comprehensive income and the remaining amount of change in the fair value of that liability is presented in profit or loss. Changes in fair value attributable to a financial liability's credit risk are not subsequently reclassified to profit or loss. If the above accounting treatment would create or enlarge an accounting mismatch, all gains or losses on that liability are presented in profit or loss. b. New IFRSs in issue but not yet endorsed by the FSC The Company has not applied the following New IFRSs issued by the IASB but not yet endorsed by the FSC. As of the date the consolidated financial statements were authorized for issue, the FSC has not announced their effective dates.

The impending initial application of the above New IFRSs, whenever applied, would not have any material impact on the Company’s accounting policies, except for the following:

129

Financial Information

1) IFRS 9 “Financial Instruments” Recognition and measurement of financial assets With regards to financial assets, all recognized financial assets that are within the scope of IAS 39 “Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement” are subsequently measured at amortized cost or fair value. Under IFRS 9, the requirement for the classification of financial assets is stated below. For the Company’s debt instruments that have contractual cash flows that are solely payments of principal and interest on the principal amount outstanding, their classification and measurement are as follows: a) For debt instruments, if they are held within a business model whose objective is to collect the contractual cash flows, the financial assets are measured at amortized cost and are assessed for impairment continuously with impairment loss recognized in profit or loss, if any. Interest revenue is recognized in profit or loss by using the effective interest method; b) For debt instruments, if they are held within a business model whose objective is achieved by both the collecting of contractual cash flows and the selling of financial assets, the financial assets are measured at fair value through other comprehensive income (FVTOCI) and are assessed for impairment. Interest revenue is recognized in profit or loss by using the effective interest method, and other gain or loss is recognized in other comprehensive income, except for impairment gains or losses and foreign exchange gains and losses. When the debt instruments are derecognized or reclassified, the cumulative gain or loss previously recognized in other comprehensive income is reclassified from equity to profit or loss. Except for above, all other financial assets are measured at fair value through profit or loss. However, the Group may make an irrevocable election to present subsequent changes in the fair value of an equity investment (that is not held for trading) in other comprehensive income, with only dividend income generally recognized in profit or loss. No subsequent impairment assessment is required, and the cumulative gain or loss previously recognized in other comprehensive income cannot be reclassified from equity to profit or loss. The impairment of financial assets IFRS 9 requires that impairment loss on financial assets is recognized by using the “Expected Credit Losses Model”. The credit loss allowance is required for financial assets measured at amortized cost, financial assets mandatorily measured at FVTOCI, lease receivables, contract assets arising from IFRS 15 “Revenue from Contracts with Customers”, certain written loan commitments and financial guarantee contracts. A loss allowance for the 12-month expected credit losses is required for a financial asset if its credit risk has not increased significantly since initial recognition. A loss allowance for full lifetime expected credit losses is required for a financial asset if its credit risk has increased significantly since initial recognition and is not low. However, a loss allowance for full lifetime expected credit losses is required for trade receivables that do not constitute a financing transaction.

130

For purchased or originated credit-impaired financial assets, the Group takes into account the expected credit losses on initial recognition in calculating the credit-adjusted effective interest rate. Subsequently, any changes in expected losses are recognized as a loss allowance with a corresponding gain or loss recognized in profit or loss. Hedge accounting The main changes in hedge accounting amended the application requirements for hedge accounting to better reflect the entity’s risk management activities. Compared with IAS 39, the main changes include: (1) enhancing types of transactions eligible for hedge accounting, specifically broadening the risk eligible for hedge accounting of non-financial items; (2) changing the way hedging derivative instruments are accounted for to reduce profit or loss volatility; and (3) replacing retrospective effectiveness assessment with the principle of economic relationship between the hedging instrument and the hedged item. 2) Amendments to IAS 36 “Recoverable Amount Disclosures for Non-financial Assets” In issuing IFRS 13 “Fair Value Measurement”, the IASB made some consequential amendments to the disclosure requirements in IAS 36 “Impairment of Assets”, introducing a requirement to disclose in every reporting period the recoverable amount of an asset or each cash-generating unit. The amendment clarifies that the disclosure of such recoverable amount is required during the period when an impairment loss has been recognized or reversed. Furthermore, the Company is required to disclose the discount rate used in current and previous measurements of the recoverable amount based on fair value less costs of disposal measured using a present value technique. 3) IFRIC 21 “Levies” IFRIC 21 provides guidance on when to recognize a liability for a levy imposed by a government. It addresses the accounting for a liability whose timing and amount is certain and the accounting for a provision whose timing or amount is not certain. The Company accrues related liability when the transaction or activity that triggers the payment of the levy occurs. Therefore, if the obligating event occurs over a period of time (such as generation of revenue over a period of time), the liability is recognized progressively. If an obligation to pay a levy is triggered upon reaching a minimum threshold (such as a minimum amount of revenue or sales generated), the liability is recognized when that minimum threshold is reached. 4) Annual Improvements to IFRSs:

2010-2012 Cycle

Several standards including IFRS 2 “Share-based Payment”, IFRS 3 “Business Combinations” and IFRS 8 “Operating Segments” were amended in this annual improvement. The amended IFRS 2 changes the definitions of ‘vesting condition’ and ‘market condition’ and adds definitions for 'performance condition' and 'service condition'. The amendment clarifies that a performance target can be based on the operations (i.e. a non-market condition) of the Company or another entity in the same group or the market price of the equity instruments of the Company or another entity in the same group (i.e. a market condition); that a performance target can relate either to the performance of the Company as a whole or to some part of it (e.g. a division); and that the period for achieving a performance condition must not extend beyond the end of the related service period. In addition, a share market index target is not a performance condition because it not only

131

Financial Information

reflects the performance of the Company, but also of other entities outside the Company. IFRS 3 was amended to clarify that contingent consideration should be measured at fair value, irrespective of whether the contingent consideration is a financial instrument within the scope of IFRS 9 or IAS 39. Changes in fair value should be recognized in profit or loss. The amended IFRS 8 requires an entity to disclose the judgments made by management in applying the aggregation criteria to operating segments, including a description of the operating segments aggregated and the economic indicators assessed in determining whether the operating segments have ‘similar economic characteristics’. The amendment also clarifies that a reconciliation of the total of the reportable segments’ assets to the entity’s assets should only be provided if the segments’ assets are regularly provided to the chief operating decision-maker. IFRS 13 was amended to clarify that the issuance of IFRS 13 did not remove the ability to measure short-term receivables and payables with no stated interest rate at their invoice amounts without discounting, if the effect of not discounting is immaterial. IAS 24 was amended to clarify that a management entity providing key management personnel services to the Company is a related party of the Company. Consequently, the Company is required to disclose as related party transactions the amounts incurred for the service paid or payable to the management entity for the provision of key management personnel services. However, disclosure of the components of such compensation is not required. 5) Annual Improvements to IFRSs:

2011-2013 Cycle

Several standards including IFRS 3, IFRS 13 and IAS 40 “Investment Property” were amended in this annual improvement. IFRS 3 was amended to clarify that IFRS 3 does not apply to the accounting for the formation of all types of joint arrangements in the financial statements of the joint arrangement itself. The scope in IFRS 13 of the portfolio exception for measuring the fair value of a group of financial assets and financial liabilities on a net basis was amended to clarify that it includes all contracts that are within the scope of, and accounted for in accordance with, IAS 39 or IFRS 9, even if those contracts do not meet the definitions of financial assets or financial liabilities within IAS 32. IAS 40 was amended to clarify that IAS 40 and IFRS 3 are not mutually exclusive and application of both standards may be required to determine whether the investment property acquired is acquisition of an asset or a business combination. 6) Amendments to IAS 16 and IAS 38 “Clarification of Acceptable Methods of Depreciation and Amortization” The entity should use appropriate depreciation and amortization method to reflect the pattern in which the future economic benefits of the property, plant and equipment and intangible asset are expected to be consumed by the entity.

132

The amended IAS 16 “Property, Plant and Equipment” requires that a depreciation method that is based on revenue that is generated by an activity that includes the use of an asset is not appropriate. The amended standard does not provide any exception from this requirement. The amended IAS 38 “Intangible Assets” requires that there is a rebuttable presumption that an amortization method that is based on revenue that is generated by an activity that includes the use of an intangible asset is not appropriate. This presumption can be overcome only in the following limited circumstances: a) In which the intangible asset is expressed as a measure of revenue (for example, the contract that specifies the entity’s use of the intangible asset will expire upon achievement of a revenue threshold); or b) When it can be demonstrated that revenue and the consumption of the economic benefits of the intangible asset are highly correlated. An entity should apply the aforementioned amendments prospectively for annual periods beginning on or after the effective date. 7) IFRS 15 “Revenue from Contracts with Customers” IFRS 15 establishes principles for recognizing revenue that apply to all contracts with customers, and will supersede IAS 18 “Revenue”, IAS 11 “Construction Contracts” and a number of revenue-related interpretations from January 1, 2017. When applying IFRS 15, an entity shall recognize revenue by applying the following steps: a) Identify the contract with the customer; b) Identify the performance obligations in the contract; c) Determine the transaction price; d) Allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contracts; and e) Recognize revenue when the entity satisfies a performance obligation. When IFRS 15 is effective, an entity may elect to apply this Standard either retrospectively to each prior reporting period presented or retrospectively with the cumulative effect of initially applying this Standard recognized at the date of initial application. 8) Amendments to IFRS 10 and IAS 28 “Sale or Contribution of Assets between an Investor and its Associate or Joint Venture” The amendments stipulated that when an entity sells or contributes assets that constitute a business (as defined in IFRS 3) to an associate or joint venture, the gain or loss resulting from the transaction is recognized in full. Also, when an entity loses control of a subsidiary that contains a business but retains significant influence or joint control, the gain or loss resulting from the transaction is recognized in full.

133

Financial Information

Conversely, when an entity sells or contributes assets that do not constitute a business to an associate or joint venture, the gain or loss resulting from the transaction is recognized only to the extent of the unrelated investors’ interest in the associate or joint venture, i.e. the entity’s share of the gain or loss is eliminated. Also, when an entity loses control of a subsidiary that does not contain a business but retains significant influence or joint control in an associate or a joint venture, the gain or loss resulting from the transaction is recognized only to the extent of the unrelated investors’ interest in the associate or joint venture, i.e. the entity’s share of the gain or loss is eliminated. 9) Annual Improvements to IFRSs:

2012-2014 Cycle

Several standards including IFRS 5 “Non-current assets held for sale and discontinued operations”, IFRS 7, IAS 19 and IAS 34 were amended in this annual improvement. IFRS 5 was amended to clarify that reclassification between non-current assets (or disposal Company) “held for sale” and non-current assets “held for distribution to owners” does not constitute a change to a plan of sale or distribution. Therefore, previous accounting treatment is not reversed. The amendment also explains that assets that no longer meet the criteria for “held for distribution to owners” and do not meet the criteria for “held for sale” should be treated in the same way as assets that cease to be classified as held for sale. The amendments to IFRS 7 provide additional guidance to clarify whether a servicing contract is continuing involvement in a transferred asset. 10) Amendment to IAS 1 “Disclosure Initiative” The amendment clarifies that the consolidated financial statements should be prepared for the purpose of disclosing material information. To improve the understandability of its consolidated financial statements, the Company should disaggregate the disclosure of material items into their different natures or functions, and disaggregate material information from immaterial information. The amendment further clarifies that the Company should consider the understandability and comparability of its consolidated financial statements to determine a systematic order in presenting its footnotes. As of the date the consolidated financial statements were authorized for issue, the Company is continuing to assess the possible impact that the application of other standards and interpretations will have on the Company’s financial position and financial performance, and will disclose the relevant impact when the assessment is complete.

4. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICY a. Statement of compliance The consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the Regulations Governing the Preparation of Financial Reports by Securities Issuers and IFRSs. b. Basis of preparation The consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the historical cost basis except

134

for financial instruments that are measured at fair values. Historical cost is generally based on the fair value of the consideration given in exchange for assets. c. Classification of current and non-current assets and liabilities Current assets include cash and cash equivalents and those assets held primarily for trading purposes or to be realized within twelve months after the reporting period, unless the asset is to be used for an exchange or to settle a liability, or otherwise remains restricted, at more than twelve months after the reporting period. Property, plant and equipment, intangible assets, other than assets classified as current are classified as non-current. Current liabilities are obligations incurred for trading purposes or to be settled within twelve months after the reporting period and liabilities that do not have an unconditional right to defer settlement for at least twelve months after the reporting period. Liabilities that are not classified as current are classified as non-current. Terms of a liability that could, at the option of the counterparty, result in its settlement by the issue of equity instruments do not affect its classification. d. Basis of consolidation 1) Principle of preparation consolidated financial statement The consolidated financial statements incorporate the financial statements of WLC and the entities controlled by WLC (“the Company”). Control is achieved when the Company has the power to govern the financial and operating policies of an entity so as to obtain benefits from its activities. Income and expenses of subsidiaries acquired or disposed of during the period are included in the consolidated statement of profit or loss and other comprehensive income from the effective date of acquisition up to the effective date of disposal, as appropriate. When necessary, adjustments are made to the financial statements of subsidiaries to bring their accounting policies into line with those used by the Company. All intra-group transactions, balances, income and expenses are eliminated in full upon consolidation. 2) Attribution of total comprehensive income to non-controlling interests Total comprehensive income of subsidiaries is attributed to the owners of the Company and to the non-controlling interests even if this results in the non-controlling interests having a deficit balance. 3) Changes in the Company’s ownership interests in existing subsidiaries Changes in the Company’s ownership interests in subsidiaries that do not result in the Company losing control over the subsidiaries are accounted for as equity transactions. The carrying amounts of the Company’s interests and the non-controlling interests are adjusted to reflect the changes in their relative interests in the subsidiaries. Any difference between the amount by which the non-controlling interests are adjusted and the fair value of the consideration paid or received is recognized directly in equity and attributed to the owners of the Company.

135

Financial Information

When the Company loses control of a subsidiary, a gain or loss is recognized in profit or loss and is calculated as the difference between (i) the aggregate of the fair value of the consideration received and any investment retained in the former subsidiary at its fair value at the date when control is lost and (ii) the assets (including any goodwill) and liabilities and any non-controlling interests of the former subsidiary at their carrying amounts at the date when control is lost. The Company accounts for all amounts recognized in other comprehensive income in relation to that subsidiary on the same basis as would be required if the Company had directly disposed of the related assets or liabilities. 4) Subsidiary included in consolidated financial statements The consolidated entities as of December 31, 2014 and 2013 were as follows:

Remark Note

The investee has a capital of HK$500 thousand and total assets of HK$1 thousand. As of December 31, 2014 and 2013, the investee had no sales and its total assets were less than 1% of consolidated assets.

The financial statements of certain subsidiaries included in the consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 2014 and 2013 and for the years ended December 31, 2014 and 2013 were audited by other independent auditors. The total assets amounted to NT$5,779,895 thousand and NT$8,238,145 thousand as of December 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively; total net operating revenues amounted to NT$6,775,724 thousand and NT$5,462,231 thousand for the years ended December 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively. e. Business combinations The consideration transferred in a business combination is measured at fair value, which is calculated as the sum of the acquisition-date (i.e., the day when the Company obtains control) fair values of the assets transferred by the Company, liabilities incurred by the Company to the former owners of the acquiree and the equity interests issued by the Company in exchange for control of the acquiree. Acquisition-related costs are generally recognized in profit or loss as incurred.

138

At the acquisition date, the identifiable assets acquired and the liabilities assumed are recognized at their fair value at the acquisition date. Non-controlling interests may be initially measured either at fair value or at the non-controlling interests’ proportionate share of the fair value of the acquiree’s identifiable net assets. The choice of measurement basis is made on a transaction-by-transaction basis. f. Foreign currencies In preparing the financial statements of each individual company entity, transactions in currencies other than the entity’s functional currency are recognized at the rates of exchange prevailing at the dates of the transactions. At the end of each reporting period, monetary items denominated in foreign currencies are retranslated at the rates prevailing at that date. Exchange differences on monetary items arising from settlement or translation are recognized in profit or loss in the period in which they arise except for: 1) Exchange differences on foreign currency borrowings relating to assets under construction for future productive use, which are included in the cost of those assets when they are regarded as an adjustment to interest costs on those foreign currency borrowings; 2) Exchange differences on transactions entered into in order to hedge certain foreign currency risks; and 3) Exchange differences on monetary items receivable from or payable to a foreign operation for which settlement is neither planned nor likely to occur (therefore forming part of the net investment in the foreign operation), which are recognized initially in other comprehensive income and reclassified from equity to profit or loss on disposal of the net investments. Non-monetary items measured at fair value that are denominated in foreign currencies are retranslated at the rates prevailing at the date when the fair value was determined. Exchange differences arising on the retranslation of non-monetary items are included in profit or loss for the period except for exchange differences arising from the retranslation of non-monetary items in respect of which gains and losses are recognized directly in other comprehensive income, in which case, the exchange differences are also recognized directly in other comprehensive income. Non-monetary items that are measured at historical cost in a foreign currency are not retranslated. For the purposes of presenting consolidated financial statements, the assets and liabilities of the Company’s foreign operations (including of the subsidiaries and associates in other countries with currencies used different from the Company) are translated into New Taiwan dollars using exchange rates prevailing at the end of each reporting period. Income and expense items are translated at the average exchange rates for the period. Exchange differences arising are recognized in other comprehensive income (attributed to the owners of the Company and non-controlling interests as appropriate). On the disposal of a foreign operation (i.e. a disposal of the Company’s entire interest in a foreign operation, or a disposal involving loss of control over a subsidiary that includes a foreign operation, or a disposal involving loss of significant influence over an associate that includes a foreign operation), all of the exchange differences accumulated in equity in respect

139

Financial Information

of that operation attributable to the owners of the Company are reclassified to profit or loss. In relation to a partial disposal of a subsidiary that does not result in the Company losing control over the subsidiary, the proportionate share of accumulated exchange differences are re-attributed to non-controlling interests of the subsidiary and are not recognized in profit or loss. For all other partial disposals, the proportionate share of the accumulated exchange differences recognized in other comprehensive income is reclassified to profit or loss. g. Inventories Inventories consist of raw materials, supplies, finished goods and work-in-process and are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Inventory write-downs are made by item, except where it may be appropriate to group similar or related items. Net realizable value is the estimated selling price of inventories less all estimated costs of completion and costs necessary to make the sale. Inventories are recorded at weighted-average cost on the balance sheet date. Inventories include real estate and constructions-in-progress, which are stated at acquisition costs plus construction costs incurred. Interest expenses on constructions-in-progress are capitalized. h. Investment in associates An associate is an entity over which the Company has significant influence and that is neither a subsidiary nor an interest in a joint venture. The results and assets and liabilities of associates are incorporated in these consolidated financial statements using the equity method of accounting. Under the equity method, an investment in an associate is initially recognized at cost and adjusted thereafter to recognize the Company’s share of the profit or loss and other comprehensive income of the associate. The Company also recognizes the changes in the Company’s share of equity of associates. When the Company subscribes for additional new shares of the associate, at a percentage different from its existing ownership percentage, the resulting carrying amount of the investment differs from the amount of the Company’s proportionate interest in the associate. The Company records such a difference as an adjustment to investments with the corresponding amount charged or credited to capital surplus. If the Company’s ownership interest is reduced due to the additional subscription of the new shares of associate, the proportionate amount of the gains or losses previously recognized in other comprehensive income in relation to that associate is reclassified to profit or loss on the same basis as would be required if the investee had directly disposed of the related assets or liabilities. When the adjustment should be debited to capital surplus, but the capital surplus recognized from investments accounted for by the equity method is insufficient, the shortage is debited to retained earnings. When the Company’s share of losses of an associate equals or exceeds its interest in that associate, the Company discontinues recognizing its share of further losses. Additional losses and liabilities are recognized only to the extent that the Company has incurred legal obligations, or constructive obligations, or made payments on behalf of that associate. Any excess of the cost of acquisition over the Company’s share of the net fair value of the identifiable assets and liabilities of an associate recognized at the date of acquisition is recognized as goodwill, which is included within the carrying amount of the investment and is

140

not amortized. Any excess of the Company’s share of the net fair value of the identifiable assets and liabilities over the cost of acquisition, after reassessment, is recognized immediately in profit or loss. The entire carrying amount of the investment (including goodwill) is tested for impairment as a single asset by comparing its recoverable amount with its carrying amount. Any impairment loss recognized forms part of the carrying amount of the investment. Any reversal of that impairment loss is recognized to the extent that the recoverable amount of the investment subsequently increases. The Company discontinues the use of the equity method from the date on which it ceases to have significant influence over the associate. Any retained investment is measured at fair value at that date and the fair value is regarded as its fair value on initial recognition as a financial asset. The difference between the previous carrying amount of the associate attributable to the retained interest and its fair value is included in the determination of the gain or loss on disposal of the associate. The Company accounts for all amounts previously recognized in other comprehensive income in relation to that associate on the same basis as would be required if that associate had directly disposed of the related assets or liabilities. When the Company entity transacts with its associate, profits and losses resulting from the transactions with the associate are recognized in the Company’ consolidated financial statements only to the extent of interests in the associate that are not related to the Company. i.

Property, plant and equipment Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost, less subsequent accumulated depreciation and subsequent accumulated impairment loss. Properties in the course of construction for production, supply or administrative purposes are carried at cost, less any recognized impairment loss. Cost includes professional fees and borrowing costs eligible for capitalization. Such properties are depreciated and classified to the appropriate categories of property, plant and equipment when completed and ready for intended use. Depreciation is recognized using the straight-line method. Each significant part is depreciated separately. The estimated useful lives, residual values and depreciation method are reviewed at the end of each reporting period, with the effect of any changes in estimate accounted for on a prospective basis. Any item of property, plant and equipment is derecognized upon disposal or when no future economic benefits are expected to arise from the continued use of the asset. Any gain or loss arising on the disposal or retirement of an item of property, plant and equipment is determined as the difference between the sales proceeds and the carrying amount of the asset and is recognized in profit or loss.

j.

Investment properties Investment properties are properties held to earn rentals and/or for capital appreciation (including property under construction for such purposes). Investment properties also include land held for a currently undetermined future use. Investment properties are measured initially at cost, including transaction costs. Subsequent to initial recognition, investment properties are measured at cost less accumulated

depreciation and accumulated impairment loss. straight-line method.

Depreciation is recognized using the

Any gain or loss arising on derecognition of the property is calculated as the difference between the net disposal proceeds and the carrying amount of the asset and is included in profit or loss in the period in which the property is derecognized. k. Intangible assets Intangible assets are measured initially at cost and subsequently measured at cost less accumulated amortization and accumulated impairment loss. Amortization is recognized on a straight-line basis. The estimated useful life, residual value, and amortization method are reviewed at the end of each reporting period, with the effect of any changes in estimate accounted for on a prospective basis. The residual value of an intangible asset with a finite useful life shall be assumed to be zero unless the Company expects to dispose of the intangible asset before the end of its economic life. Intangible assets with indefinite useful lives that are acquired separately are measured at cost less accumulated impairment loss. An intangible asset is derecognized on disposal, or when no future economic benefits are expected from use or disposal. Gains or losses arising from derecognition of an intangible asset, measured as the difference between the net disposal proceeds and the carrying amount of the asset, are recognized in profit or loss when the asset is derecognized. l.

Impairment of tangible and intangible assets other than goodwill At the end of each reporting period, the Company reviews the carrying amounts of its tangible and intangible assets, excluding goodwill, to determine whether there is any indication that those assets have suffered an impairment loss. If any such indication exists, the recoverable amount of the asset is estimated in order to determine the extent of the impairment loss. When it is not possible to estimate the recoverable amount of an individual asset, the Company estimates the recoverable amount of the cash-generating unit to which the asset belongs. Corporate assets are allocated to the individual cash-generating units on a reasonable and consistent basis of allocation. Recoverable amount is the higher of fair value less costs to sell and value in use. If the recoverable amount of an asset or cash-generating unit is estimated to be less than its carrying amount, the carrying amount of the asset or cash-generating unit is reduced to its recoverable amount. When an impairment loss subsequently is reversed, the carrying amount of the asset or cash-generating unit is increased to the revised estimate of its recoverable amount, but only to the extent of the carrying amount that would have been determined had no impairment loss been recognized for the asset or cash-generating unit in prior years. A reversal of an impairment loss is recognized immediately in profit or loss.

m. Non-current assets held for sale Non-current assets (or disposal groups) are classified as held for sale if their carrying amount will be recovered principally through a sale transaction rather than through continuing use. This condition is regarded as met only when the sale is highly probable and the non-current asset (or disposal group) is available for immediate sale in its present condition. To meet the criteria for the sale being highly probable, the appropriate level of management must be committed to the sale, which should be expected to qualify for recognition as a completed sale

142

within one year from the date of classification. When the Company is committed to a sale plan involving loss of control of a subsidiary, all of the assets and liabilities of that subsidiary are classified as held for sale when the criteria described above are met, regardless of whether the Group will retain a non-controlling interest in its former subsidiary after the sale. Non-current assets (and disposal groups) classified as held for sale are measured at the lower of their previous carrying amount and fair value less costs to sell. Recognition of depreciation of those assets would cease. n. Financial instruments Financial assets and financial liabilities are recognized when a company entity becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the instruments. Financial assets and financial liabilities are initially measured at fair value. Transaction costs that are directly attributable to the acquisition or issue of financial assets and financial liabilities (other than financial assets and financial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss) are added to or deducted from the fair value of the financial assets or financial liabilities, as appropriate, on initial recognition. Transaction costs directly attributable to the acquisition of financial assets or financial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss are recognized immediately in profit or loss. Financial assets All regular way purchases or sales of financial assets are recognized and derecognized on a trade date basis. 1) Measurement category The categories of financial assets held by the Company are financial assets at fair value through profit or loss, available-for-sale financial assets and loans and receivables. a) Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss Financial assets are classified as at fair value through profit or loss when the financial asset is either held for trading or it is designated as at fair value through profit or loss. Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss are stated at fair value, with any gains or losses arising on remeasurement recognized in profit or loss. The net gain or loss recognized in profit or loss incorporates any dividend or interest earned on the financial asset and is included in the other gains and losses line item. b) Available-for-sale financial assets Available-for-sale financial assets are non-derivatives that are either designated as available-for-sale or are not classified as loans and receivables, held-to-maturity investments or financial assets at fair value through profit or loss. Available-for-sale financial assets are measured at fair value. Changes in the carrying amount of available-for-sale monetary financial assets relating to changes in foreign currency exchange rates, interest income calculated using the effective interest

143

Financial Information

method and dividends on available-for-sale equity investments are recognized in profit or loss. Other changes in the carrying amount of available-for-sale financial assets are recognized in other comprehensive income and will be reclassified to profit or loss when the investment is disposed of or is determined to be impaired. Dividends on available-for-sale equity instruments are recognized in profit or loss when the Company’s right to receive the dividends is established. Available-for-sale equity investments that do not have a quoted market price in an active market and whose fair value cannot be reliably measured and derivatives that are linked to and must be settled by delivery of such unquoted equity investments are measured at cost less any identified impairment loss at the end of each reporting period and are presented in a separate line item as financial assets carried at cost. If, in a subsequent period, the fair value of the financial assets can be reliably measured, the financial assets are remeasured at fair value. The difference between carrying amount and fair value is recognized in profit or loss or other comprehensive income on financial assets. Any impairment losses are recognized in profit and loss. c) Loans and receivables Loans and receivables (including trade receivables, cash and cash equivalent, and debt investments with no active market) are measured at amortized cost using the effective interest method, less any impairment, except for short-term receivables when the effect of discounting is immaterial. Cash equivalent includes time deposits and placements with original maturities within three months from the date of acquisition, highly liquid, readily convertible to a known amount of cash and be subject to an insignificant risk of changes in value. These cash equivalents are held for the purpose of meeting short-term cash commitments. 2) Impairment of financial assets Financial assets, other than those at fair value through profit or loss, are assessed for indicators of impairment at the end of each reporting period. Financial assets are considered to be impaired when there is objective evidence that, as a result of one or more events that occurred after the initial recognition of the financial asset, the estimated future cash flows of the investment have been affected. For financial assets carried at amortized cost, such as trade receivables and other receivables, assets are assessed for impairment on a collective basis even if they were assessed not to be impaired individually. Objective evidence of impairment for a portfolio of receivables could include the Company’s past experience of collecting payments, an increase in the number of delayed payments in the portfolio past the average credit period of 60 days, as well as observable changes in national or local economic conditions that correlate with default on receivables, and other situation. For financial assets carried at amortized cost, the amount of the impairment loss recognized is the difference between the asset’s carrying amount and the present value of estimated future cash flows, discounted at the financial asset’s original effective interest rate.

144

For financial assets measured at amortized cost, if, in a subsequent period, the amount of the impairment loss decreases and the decrease can be related objectively to an event occurring after the impairment was recognized, the previously recognized impairment loss is reversed through profit or loss to the extent that the carrying amount of the investment at the date the impairment is reversed does not exceed what the amortized cost would have been had the impairment not been recognized. For available-for-sale equity investments, a significant or prolonged decline in the fair value of the security below its cost is considered to be objective evidence of impairment. For all other financial assets, objective evidence of impairment could include: a) Significant financial difficulty of the issuer or counterparty; or b) Breach of contract, such as a default or delinquency in interest or principal payments; or c) It becoming probable that the borrower will enter bankruptcy or financial re-organization; or d) The disappearance of an active market for that financial asset because of financial difficulties. When an available-for-sale financial asset is considered to be impaired, cumulative gains or losses previously recognized in other comprehensive income are reclassified to profit or loss in the period. In respect of available-for-sale equity securities, impairment loss previously recognized in profit or loss are not reversed through profit or loss. Any increase in fair value subsequent to an impairment loss is recognized in other comprehensive income. In respect of available-for-sale debt securities, impairment loss are subsequently reversed through profit or loss if an increase in the fair value of the investment can be objectively related to an event occurring after the recognition of the impairment loss. For financial assets that are carried at cost, the amount of the impairment loss is measured as the difference between the asset’s carrying amount and the present value of the estimated future cash flows discounted at the current market rate of return for a similar financial asset. Such impairment loss will not be reversed in subsequent periods. The carrying amount of the financial asset is reduced by the impairment loss directly for all financial assets with the exception of trade receivables, where the carrying amount is reduced through the use of an allowance account. When a trade receivable and other receivables are considered uncollectible, it is written off against the allowance account. Subsequent recoveries of amounts previously written off are credited against the allowance account. Changes in the carrying amount of the allowance account are recognized in profit or loss except for uncollectible trade receivables that are written off against the allowance account. 3) Derecognition of financial assets The Company derecognizes a financial asset only when the contractual rights to the cash flows from the asset expire, or when it transfers the financial asset and substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership of the asset to another party. On derecognition of a financial asset in its entirety, the difference between the asset’s carrying amount and the sum of the consideration received and receivable and the

145

Financial Information

cumulative gain or loss that had been recognized in other comprehensive income is recognized in profit or loss. Financial liabilities 1) Subsequent measurement Except the following situation, all the financial liabilities are measured at amortized cost using the effective interest method: a) Financial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss Financial liabilities are classified as at fair value through profit or loss when the financial liability is either held for trading or it is designated as at fair value through profit or loss. Financial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss are stated at fair value, with any gains or losses arising on remeasurement recognized in profit or loss. The net gain or loss recognized in profit or loss incorporates any interest paid on the financial liability. 2) Derecognition of financial liabilities The difference between the carrying amount of the financial liability derecognized and the consideration paid, including any non-cash assets transferred or liabilities assumed, is recognized in profit or loss. Derivative financial instruments The Company enters into a variety of derivative financial instruments to manage its exposure to interest rate and foreign exchange rate risks, including foreign exchange forward contracts, interest rate swaps and cross currency swaps. Derivatives are initially recognized at fair value at the date the derivative contracts are entered into and are subsequently remeasured to their fair value at the end of each reporting period. The resulting gain or loss is recognized in profit or loss immediately unless the derivative is designated and effective as a hedging instrument, in which event the timing of the recognition in profit or loss depends on the nature of the hedge relationship. When the fair value of derivative financial instruments is positive, the derivative is recognized as a financial asset; when the fair value of derivative financial instruments is negative, the derivative is recognized as a financial liability. Derivatives embedded in non-derivative host contracts are treated as separate derivatives when they meet the definition of a derivative, their risks and characteristics are not closely related to those of the host contracts and the contracts are not measured at fair value through profit or loss. o. Hedge accounting The Company designates certain hedging instruments, which include derivatives, embedded derivatives and non-derivatives in respect of foreign currency risk, as either fair value hedges or cash flow hedges. Hedges of foreign exchange risk on firm commitments are accounted for as cash flow hedges.

146

Cash flow hedges The effective portion of changes in the fair value of derivatives that are designated and qualified as cash flow hedges is recognized in other comprehensive income and accumulated under the heading of cash flow hedging reserve. The gain or loss relating to the ineffective portion is recognized immediately in profit or loss, and is included in the other gains and losses line item. If a hedge of a forecast transaction subsequently results in the recognition of a financial asset or a financial liability, the associated gains or losses that were recognized in other comprehensive income are reclassified from equity to profit or loss as a reclassification adjustment in the same period or periods during which the hedged forecast cash flows affect profit or loss. If a hedge of a forecast transaction subsequently results in the recognition of a non-financial asset or a non-financial liability, the associated gains and losses that were recognized in other comprehensive income are removed and are included in the initial cost of the non-financial asset or non-financial liability. Hedge accounting is discontinued prospectively when the Company revokes the designated hedging relationship, or when the hedging instrument expires or is sold, terminated, or exercised, or when it no longer meets the criteria for hedge accounting. The cumulative gain or loss on the hedging instrument that has been previously recognized in other comprehensive income from the period when the hedge was effective remains separately in equity until the forecast transaction occurs. When the forecast transaction is ultimately recognized in profit or loss, the associated gains or losses that were recognized in other comprehensive income are reclassified from equity to profit or loss or are included in the initial cost of the non-financial asset or non-financial liability. When a forecast transaction is no longer expected to occur, the gain or loss accumulated in equity is recognized immediately in profit or loss. p. Provisions Provisions are recognized when the Company has a present obligation (legal or constructive) as a result of a past event, it is probable that the Company will be required to settle the obligation, and a reliable estimate can be made of the amount of the obligation. q. Revenue recognition Revenue from sales of goods is recognized when the Company has transferred to the buyer the significant risks and rewards of ownership of the goods, primarily upon shipment, because the earnings process has been completed and the economic benefits associated with the transaction have been realized or are realizable. The Company does not recognize sales revenue on materials delivered to subcontractors because this delivery does not involve a transfer of risks and rewards of materials ownership. Revenue is measured at the fair value of the consideration received or receivable. Revenue is reduced for estimated customer returns, rebates and other similar allowances. Allowance for sales returns and liability for returns are recognized at the time of sale based on the seller’s reliable estimate of future returns and based on past experience and other relevant factors. 1) Rendering of services Service income is recognized when services are provided. Revenue from a contract to provide services is recognized by reference to the stage of completion of the contract.

147

Financial Information

2) Dividend and interest income Dividend income from investments is recognized when the shareholder’s right to receive payment has been established provided that it is probable that the economic benefits will flow to the Company and the amount of income can be measured reliably. r. Leasing Leases are classified as finance leases whenever the terms of the lease transfer substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership to the lessee. All other leases are classified as operating leases. Rental income from operating leases is recognized on a straight-line basis over the term of the relevant lease. Operating lease payments are recognized as an expense on a straight-line basis over the lease term. Contingent rents arising under operating leases are recognized as an expense in the period in which they are incurred. s. Retirement benefit costs Payments to defined contribution retirement benefit plans are recognized as an expense when employees have rendered service entitling them to the contributions. For defined benefit retirement benefit plans, the cost of providing benefits is determined using the Projected Unit Credit Method, with actuarial valuations being carried out at the end of each reporting period. Past service cost is recognized immediately to the extent that the benefits are already vested, and otherwise is amortized on a straight-line basis over the average period until the benefits become vested. The retirement benefit obligation recognized in the consolidated balance sheets represents the present value of the defined benefit obligation as adjusted for unrecognized actuarial gains and losses and unrecognized past service cost, and as reduced by the fair value of plan assets. Any asset resulting from this calculation is limited to the unrecognized past service cost and actuarial losses, plus the present value of available refunds and reductions in future contributions to the plan. Curtailment or settlement gains or losses on the defined benefit plan are recognized when the curtailment or settlement occurs. t.

Income tax Income tax expense represents the sum of the tax currently payable and deferred tax. 1) Current tax According to the Income Tax Law, an additional tax at 10% of unappropriated earnings is provided for as income tax in the year the shareholders approve to retain the earnings. Adjustments of prior years’ tax liabilities are added to or deducted from the current year’s tax provision. 2) Deferred tax Deferred tax is recognized on temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities in the consolidated financial statements and the corresponding tax bases used in the computation of taxable profit. Deferred tax liabilities are generally

148

recognized for all taxable temporary differences. Deferred tax assets are generally recognized for all (deductible temporary differences and unused loss carry forward) to the extent that it is probable that taxable profits will be available against which those deductible temporary differences can be utilized. Deferred tax liabilities are recognized for taxable temporary differences associated with investments in subsidiaries and associates, and interests in joint ventures, except where the Company is able to control the reversal of the temporary difference and it is probable that the temporary difference will not reverse in the foreseeable future. Deferred tax assets arising from deductible temporary differences associated with such investments and interests are only recognized to the extent that it is probable that there will be sufficient taxable profits against which to utilize the benefits of the temporary differences and they are expected to reverse in the foreseeable future. The carrying amount of deferred tax assets is reviewed at the end of each reporting period and reduced to the extent that it is no longer probable that sufficient taxable profits will be available to allow all or part of the asset to be recovered. A previously unrecognized deferred tax asset is also reviewed at the end of each reporting period and recognized to the to the extent that it has become probable that future taxable profit will allow the deferred tax asset to be recovered. Deferred tax liabilities and assets are measured at the tax rates that are expected to apply in the period in which the liability is settled or the asset realized, based on tax rates (and tax laws) that have been enacted or substantively enacted by the end of the reporting period. The measurement of deferred tax liabilities and assets reflects the tax consequences that would follow from the manner in which the Company expects, at the end of the reporting period, to recover or settle the carrying amount of its assets and liabilities. u. Reclassifications Certain accounts in the consolidation financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2013 have been reclassified to conform to the presentation of the consolidation financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2014. v. Translation into U.S. dollar The financial statements are stated in New Taiwan dollars. The translation of the 2014 and 2013 New Taiwan dollar amounts into U.S. dollar amounts is included solely for the convenience of readers, using the average exchange rate of NT$31.65 to US$1.00 quoted by the Bank of Taiwan on December 31, 2014. The convenience translation should not be construed as representations that the New Taiwan dollar amounts have been, could have been, or could in the future be, converted into U.S. dollars at this or any other exchange rate.

5. CRITICAL ACCOUNTING JUDGMENTS AND KEY SOURCES OF ESTIMATION UNCERTAINTY In the application of the Company’s accounting policies, management is required to make judgments, estimates and assumptions about the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. The accounts include allowance for doubtful trade receivable accounts, inventory valuation losses, depreciation, impairment, pension, deferred tax assets, etc. The estimates and associated assumptions are based on historical experience and

149

Financial Information

other factors that are considered to be relevant.

Actual results may differ from these estimates.

The estimates and underlying assumptions are audited on an ongoing basis. Revisions to accounting estimates are recognized in the period in which the estimate is revised if the revision affects only that period or in the period of the revision and future periods if the revision affects both current and future periods. The followings are the main assumptions and sources of estimation uncertainty at the end of financial reporting period: a. Deferred tax assets As of December 31, 2014 and 2013, the carrying amount of the deferred tax assets in relation to unused tax losses was NT$1,505,137 thousand and NT$1,471,593 thousand, respectively. The realizability of the deferred tax asset mainly depends on whether sufficient future profits or taxable temporary differences will be available. In cases where the actual future profits generated are less than expected, a material reversal of deferred tax assets may arise, which would be recognized in profit or loss for the period in which such a reversal takes place. b. Write-down of inventory Net realizable value of inventory is the estimated selling price in the ordinary course of business less the estimated costs of completion and the estimated costs necessary to make the sale. The estimation of net realizable value is based on current market conditions and the historical experience from selling products of a similar nature. Changes in market conditions may have a material impact on the estimation of net realizable value. c. Recognition and measurement of defined benefit plans Accrued pension liabilities and the resulting pension expense under defined benefit pension plans are calculated using the Projected Unit Credit Method. Actuarial assumptions comprise the discount rate, rate of employee turnover, and long-term average future salary increase. Changes in economic circumstances and market conditions will affect these assumptions and may have a material impact on the amount of the expense and the liability. As of December 31, 2014 and 2013, the carrying amount of the accrued pension liabilities was NT$1,308,828 thousand and NT$1,222,346 thousand, respectively.

For the years ended December 31, 2014 and 2013, the Company’s strategy for commodity futures contracts, forward exchange contracts and exchange rate swap contracts was to hedge exposures to fluctuations of essential materials’ prices and foreign exchange rates. However, those derivative financial instruments did not meet the criteria of hedge effectiveness; and therefore, they were not accounted for by hedge accounting.

Trade receivables Trade receivables Less: Allowance for impairment loss

The average credit period on sales of goods was 60 days. In determining the collectibility of a trade receivable, the Company considered any change in the credit quality of the trade receivable since the date credit was initially granted to the end of the reporting period. Allowance for impairment loss based on estimated uncollectible amounts determined by reference to age of receivables, past default experience of the counterparties and an analysis of their current financial position. The concentration of credit risk was limited due to the fact that the customer base was large and unrelated.

Powertec Energy Corp. shares held by the Company had been recorded as “investments accounted for using equity method”. On November 27, 2013, the Company sold parts of its interest in Chin-Xin and lost control but still had significant influence. While Chin-Xin was excluded from consolidation, the Company lost significant influence on Powertec Energy Corp; thus, in November 2013, the financial asset has been transferred back to “financial assets carried at cost noncurrent”. The Company participated in Powertec Energy Corp’s capital increase by cash on June 17, 2014. The investment was NT$700,000 thousand. The shares held by the Company were 302,483 thousand shares and the ownership percentage was 17.8% after the issuance. Management believed that fair value of the above unlisted equity investments held by the Company cannot be reliably measured due to the very wide range of reasonable fair value estimates; therefore, the investments were measured at cost less impairment at the end of reporting period. The Company recognized impairment loss on financial assets carried at cost of NT$538,000 thousand for the year ended December 31, 2013, after appropriate evaluation.

The Company’s hedge strategy is to enter foreign exchange forward contracts to avoid firm commitment of its exchange rate exposure. When forecast sales and purchases actually take place, the carrying amounts of the non-financial hedged items will be adjusted accordingly. The terms of the foreign exchange forward contracts had been negotiated to match the terms of the respective designated hedged items. The outstanding foreign exchange forward contracts of the Company at the end of the reporting period were as follows:

Those foreign exchange forward contracts were designated as cash flow hedges. During the years ended December 31, 2014, fair value loss of NT$1,425 thousand, had been recognized in other comprehensive income due to the valuation adjustments of the foreign exchange forward contracts for the exchange rate exposure of expected future equipment purchase.

Financial Information

b. Defined benefit plans WLC and Walsin Info-Electric adopted the defined benefit plan under the LSL; pension benefits are calculated on the basis of the length of service and average monthly salaries of the six months before retirement. WLC and Walsin Info-Electric contribute amounts equal to 2% of total monthly salaries and wages to a pension fund administered by the pension fund monitoring committee. Pension contributions are deposited in the Bank of Taiwan in the committee’s name. The plan assets are invested in domestic and foreign equity and debt securities, bank deposits, etc. The investments are conducted at the discretion of the Bureau of Labor Funds, Ministry of Labor or under the mandated management. However, in accordance with Regulations for Revenues, Expenditures, Safeguard and Utilization of the Labor Retirement Fund the return generated by employees' pension contribution should not be below the interest rate for a 2-year time deposit with local banks. The actuarial valuations of plan assets and the present value of the defined benefit obligation were carried out by qualified actuaries. The principal assumptions used for the purposes of the actuarial valuations were as follows: December 31

Discount rate Expected return on plan assets Expected rate(s) of salary increase

2013

2.00% 1.25%-1.75% 2.00%

1.75%-2.00% 1.75%-2.00% 2.00%

The assessment of the overall expected rate of return was based on historical return trends and analysts’ predictions of the market for the asset over the life of the related obligation, by reference to the aforementioned use of the plan assets and the impact of the related minimum return. Amounts recognized in profit or loss in respect of these defined benefit plans are as follows:

The premium from shares issued in excess of par (share premium from issuance of common shares, conversion of bonds and treasury share transactions) and donations may be used to offset a deficit; in addition, when the Company has no deficit, such capital surplus may be

168

distributed as cash dividends or transferred to capital (limited to a certain percentage of the Company’s capital surplus and once a year). The capital surplus from long-term investments, employee share options and share warrants may not be used for any purpose. c. Retained earnings and dividend policy Based on the Company Law of the ROC and WLC’s Articles of Incorporation, 10% of WLC’s annual earnings, net of tax and any deficit, should be appropriated as legal reserve until this reserve equals WLC’s paid-in capital. Also, the Company appropriated earnings to special reserve based on the applicable laws and regulations. Any remaining balance of distributable earrings, unless it will be retained partially by WLC or resolved otherwise by the stockholders, should be appropriated in the following order: 1) 2) 3) 4)

91.5% as dividends; 3% as bonus to employees; 1.5% as remuneration to directors and supervisors; and All or part of the remainder as special reserve.

If the bonuses to employees are stock bonuses, the employees of WLC’s subsidiaries should reach certain condition to be qualified to receive the bonus. The conditions are set by the board of directors. Material differences between such estimated amounts and the amounts proposed by the board of directors in the following year are adjusted in the current year. If the actual amounts subsequently resolved by the stockholders differ from the proposed amounts, the differences are recorded in the year of stockholders’ resolution as a change in accounting estimate. If bonus shares are resolved to be distributed to employees, the number of shares is determined by dividing the amount of bonus by the closing price (after considering the effect of cash and stock dividends) of the shares of the day preceding the stockholders’ meeting. Due to deficit at December 31, 2013, WLC did not accrue for bonus to employees and remuneration to directors and supervisors for the year ended December 31, 2013. Due to the fact that earnings for 2014 had not been distributed, the Company did not accrue for bonus to employees and remuneration to directors and supervisors. The Company appropriates or reverses a special reserve in accordance with Rule No. 1010012865 and Rule No. 1010047490 and the directive entitled “Questions and Answers on Special Reserves Appropriated Following the Adoption of IFRSs”. Distributions can be made out of any subsequent reversal of the debit to other equity items. The Company also appropriates and reverses a special reserve in accordance with Rule No. 1030006415 issued by the FSC. Appropriation of earnings to legal reserve shall be made until the legal reserve equals the Company’s paid-in capital. Legal reserve may be used to offset deficit. If the Company has no deficit and the legal reserve has exceeded 25% of the Company’s paid-in capital, the excess may be transferred to capital or distributed in cash. The stockholders of WLC approved the reversal of special reserve in the amount of NT$794,296 thousand under Rule No. 100116 issued by the FSC and also approved to use special reserve of NT$1,136,328 thousand and legal reserve of NT$2,986,426 thousand to offset deficit on June 11, 2013.

The Company’s Corporate Treasury function provides services to the business, coordinates access to domestic and international financial markets, monitors and manages the financial risks relating to the operations of the Company through internal risk reports which analyze exposures by degree and magnitude of risks. These risks include market risk, credit risk and liquidity risk. The Company sought to minimize the effects of these risks by using derivative financial instruments to hedge risk exposures. The use of financial derivatives is governed by the Company’s policies approved by the board of directors, which provides written principles on foreign exchange risk, interest rate risk, credit risk, use of financial derivatives and non-derivative financial instruments, and investment of excess liquidity. Compliance with policies and exposure limits if reviewed by the internal auditors on a continuous basis. The

184

Company did not enter into or trade financial instruments for speculative purposes. 1) Market risk The Company is exposed primarily to the financial risks of changes in foreign currency exchange rates and interest rates. The Company uses forward foreign exchange contracts and interest rate swaps contracts to hedge foreign currency risk and interest rate risk. There had been no change to the Company’s exposure to market risks or the manner in which these risks were managed and measured. a) Foreign currency risk The Company had foreign currency sales and purchases, which exposed the Company to foreign currency risk. Exchange rate exposures were managed within approved policy parameters utilizing forward foreign exchange contracts. It is the Company’s policy to negotiate the terms of the hedge derivatives to match the terms of the hedged item to maximize hedge effectiveness. The carrying amounts of the Company’s foreign currency denominated monetary assets and monetary liabilities (including those eliminated on consolidation) at the end of the reporting period were as follows.

Sensitivity analysis The sensitivity analyses below shows the possible effect on profit and loss assuming a change in the interest rates at the end of the reporting period. If interest rates at the end of the reporting period were higher by 1% and all other variables were held constant, the Company’s pre-tax income in 2014 could have been decreased by NT$278,589 thousand and the pre-tax loss for the year ended December 31, 2013 would have been higher by NT$307,867 thousand, respectively. 2) Credit risk Credit risk refers to the risk that counterparty will default on its contractual obligations resulting in financial loss to the Company. As at the end of the reporting period, the Company’s maximum exposure to credit risk which will cause a financial loss to the Company due to failure of counterparties to discharge their obligation and financial guarantees would equal to the following: a) The carrying amount of the respective recognized financial assets as stated in the condensed balance sheets; and b) The amount of contingent liabilities in relation to financial guarantee issued by the Company.

186

The Company adopted a policy of only dealing with creditworthy counterparties and obtaining sufficient collateral, where appropriate, as a means of mitigating the risk of financial loss from defaults. The Company’s exposure and the credit ratings of its counterparties are continuously monitored and the aggregate value of transactions concluded is spread amongst the approved counterparties. Credit exposure is controlled by setting credit limits that are reviewed and approved by the risk management committee annually. In order to minimize credit risk, the management of the Company has delegated a team responsible for determination of credit limits, credit approvals and other monitoring procedures to ensure that follow-up action is taken to recover overdue receivables. In addition, the Company reviews the recoverable amount of each individual trade receivables at the end of the reporting period to ensure that adequate impairment losses are made for irrecoverable amounts. In this regard, the directors of the Company consider that the Company’s credit risk was significantly reduced. 3) Liquidity risk The Company manages liquidity risk by monitoring and maintaining a level of cash and cash equivalents deemed adequate to finance the Company’s operations and mitigate the effects of fluctuations in cash flows. In addition, management monitors the utilization of bank borrowings and ensures compliance with loan covenants. a) The Company’s non-derivative financial liabilities with their agreed repayment period were as follows: 1 Year

These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits. The financial statements as of December 31, 2014 and 2013 and for the years ended December 31, 2014 and 2013 of certain equity-method investees were audited by other independent auditors. Our opinion, insofar as it relates to such investments, is based solely on the reports of other auditors. The investments in such investees amounted to NT$3,589,703 thousand and NT$3,245,628 thousand which constituted 4.32% and 4.00% of the total assets as of December 31, 2014 and 2013, and the investment gain amounted to NT$175,234 thousand and investment loss amounted to NT$92,389 thousand for the years ended December 31, 2014 and 2013. We conducted our audits in accordance with the Rules Governing the Audit of Financial Statements by Certified Public Accountants and auditing standards generally accepted in the Republic of China. Those rules and standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits and the reports of other auditors provide a reasonable basis for our opinion. In our opinion, based on our audits and the reports of other auditors, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2014 and 2013, and their financial performance and their cash flows for the years ended December 31, 2014 and 2013, in conformity with the Regulations Governing the Preparation of Financial Reports by Securities Issuers.

February 17, 2015 Notice to Readers The accompanying financial statements are intended only to present the financial position, financial performance and cash flows in accordance with accounting principles and practices generally accepted in the Republic of China and not those of any other jurisdictions. The standards, procedures and practices to audit such financial statements are those generally applied in the Republic of China. For the convenience of readers, the auditors’ report and the accompanying financial statements have been translated into English from the original Chinese version prepared and used in the Republic of China. If there is any conflict between the English version and the original Chinese version or any difference in the interpretation of the two versions, the Chinese-language auditors’ report and financial statements shall prevail.

Effective Date Announced by IASB (Note) January 1, 2013 July 1, 2010 July 1, 2011 January 1, 2013 January 1, 2013 July 1, 2011 January 1, 2013 January 1, 2013 January 1, 2013

(Concluded) Unless stated otherwise, the above New IFRSs are effective for annual periods beginning on or after the respective effective dates.

Except for the following, the initial application of the above 2013 IFRSs version and the related amendments to the Regulations Governing the Preparation of Financial Reports by Securities Issuers has not had any material impact on the Company’s accounting policies: 1) Revision to IAS 28 “Investments in Associates and Joint Ventures” Revised IAS 28 requires when a portion of an investment in associates meets the criteria to be classified as held for sale, that portion is classified as held for sale. Any retained portion that has not been classified as held for sale is accounted for using the equity method. Previously, when a portion of an investment in associates meets the criteria to be classified as held for sale, the entire investment is classified as held for sale and ceases to apply the equity method. 2) IFRS 13 “Fair Value Measurement” IFRS 13 establishes a single source of guidance for fair value measurements.

246

It defines

fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value, and requires disclosures about fair value measurements. The disclosure requirements in IFRS 13 are more extensive than those required in the current standards. For example, quantitative and qualitative disclosures based on the three-level fair value hierarchy currently required only for financial instruments are extended by IFRS 13 to cover all assets and liabilities within its scope. The fair value measurements under IFRS 13 will be applied prospectively from January 1, 2015. 3) Amendments to IAS 1 “Presentation of Items of Other Comprehensive Income” The amendments to IAS 1 require items of other comprehensive income to be grouped into those that (1) will not be reclassified subsequently to profit or loss; and (2) will be reclassified subsequently to profit or loss when specific conditions are met. Income taxes on related items of other comprehensive income are grouped on the same basis. Under current IAS 1, there were no such requirements. The Company will retrospectively apply the above amendments starting from 2015. Items not expected to be reclassified to profit or loss are remeasurements of the defined benefit plans. Items expected to be reclassified to profit or loss are the exchange differences on translating foreign operations, unrealized gains (loss) on available-for-sale financial assets, cash flow hedges, and share of other comprehensive income (except the share of the remeasurements of the defined benefit plans) of associates accounted for using the equity method. However, the application of the above amendments will not result in any impact on the net profit for the year, other comprehensive income for the year (net of income tax), and total comprehensive income for the year. 4) Revision to IAS 19 “Employee Benefits” Revised IAS 19 requires the recognition of changes in defined benefit obligations and in the fair value of plan assets when they occur, and hence eliminates the “corridor approach” permitted under current IAS 19 and accelerate the recognition of past service costs. The revision requires all remeasurements of the defined benefit plans to be recognized immediately through other comprehensive income in order for the net pension asset or liability to reflect the full value of the plan deficit or surplus. Furthermore, the interest cost and expected return on plan assets used in current IAS 19 are replaced with a “net interest” amount, which is calculated by applying the discount rate to the net defined benefit liability or asset. In addition, the revised IAS 19 introduces certain changes in the presentation of the defined benefit cost, and also includes more extensive disclosures. 5) Amendments to IFRS 7 “Disclosure - Offsetting Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities” The amendments to IFRS 7 require disclosure of information about rights of offset and related arrangements (such as collateral posting requirements) for financial instruments under enforceable master netting arrangements and similar arrangements. 6) Amendments to IAS 32 “Offsetting Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities” The amendments to IAS 32 clarify the requirements relating to the offset of financial

247

Financial Information

assets and financial liabilities. Specifically, the amendments clarify the meaning of “currently has a legally enforceable right of set-off” and “simultaneous realization and settlement”. 7) Annual Improvements to IFRSs:

2009-2011 Cycle

Several standards including IFRS 1 “First-time Adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards”, IAS 1 “Presentation of Financial Statements”, IAS 16 “Property, Plant and Equipment”, IAS 32 “Financial Instruments: Presentation” and IAS 34 “Interim Financial Reporting” were amended in this annual improvement. The amendments to IAS 1 clarify that an entity is required to present a balance sheet as at the beginning of the preceding period when a) it applies an accounting policy retrospectively, or makes a retrospective restatement or reclassifies items in its financial statements, and b) the retrospective application, restatement or reclassification has a material effect on the information in the balance sheet at the beginning of the preceding period. The amendments also clarify that related notes are not required to accompany the balance sheet at the beginning of the preceding period. The amendments to IAS 16 clarify that spare parts, stand-by equipment and servicing equipment should be recognized in accordance with IAS 16 when they meet the definition of property, plant and equipment and otherwise as inventory. The amendments to IAS 32 clarify that income tax relating to distributions to holders of an equity instrument and to transaction costs of an equity transaction should be accounted for in accordance with IAS 12 “Income Taxes”. 8) Recognition and measurement of financial liabilities designated as at fair value through profit or loss In accordance with the amendments to the Regulations Governing the Preparation of Financial Reports by Securities Issuers, for financial liabilities designated as at fair value through profit or loss, the amount of change in the fair value attributable to changes in the credit risk of that liability is presented in other comprehensive income and the remaining amount of change in the fair value of that liability is presented in profit or loss. Changes in fair value attributable to a financial liability's credit risk are not subsequently reclassified to profit or loss. If the above accounting treatment would create or enlarge an accounting mismatch, all gains or losses on that liability are presented in profit or loss. b. New IFRSs in issue but not yet endorsed by the FSC The Company has not applied the following New IFRSs issued by the IASB but not yet endorsed by the FSC. As of the date the financial statements were authorized for issue, the FSC has not announced their effective dates.

(Concluded) Note 1: Unless stated otherwise, the above New IFRSs are effective for annual periods beginning on or after their respective effective dates. Note 2: The amendment to IFRS 2 applies to share-based payment transactions with grant date on or after July 1, 2014; the amendment to IFRS 3 applies to business combinations with acquisition date on or after July 1, 2014; the amendment to IFRS 13 is effective immediately; the remaining amendments are effective for annual periods beginning on or after July 1, 2014.

Note 4: The amendment to IFRS 5 is applied prospectively to changes in a method of disposal that occur in annual periods beginning on or after January 1, 2016; the remaining amendments are effective for annual periods beginning on or after January 1, 2016. The impending initial application of the above New IFRSs, whenever applied, would not have any material impact on the Company’s accounting policies, except for the following:

249

Financial Information

1) IFRS 9 “Financial Instruments” Recognition and measurement of financial assets With regards to financial assets, all recognized financial assets that are within the scope of IAS 39 “Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement” are subsequently measured at amortized cost or fair value. Under IFRS 9, the requirement for the classification of financial assets is stated below. For the Group’s debt instruments that have contractual cash flows that are solely payments of principal and interest on the principal amount outstanding, their classification and measurement are as follows: a) For debt instruments, if they are held within a business model whose objective is to collect the contractual cash flows, the financial assets are measured at amortized cost and are assessed for impairment continuously with impairment loss recognized in profit or loss, if any. Interest revenue is recognized in profit or loss by using the effective interest method; b) For debt instruments, if they are held within a business model whose objective is achieved by both the collecting of contractual cash flows and the selling of financial assets, the financial assets are measured at fair value through other comprehensive income (FVTOCI) and are assessed for impairment. Interest revenue is recognized in profit or loss by using the effective interest method, and other gain or loss is recognized in other comprehensive income, except for impairment gains or losses and foreign exchange gains and losses. When the debt instruments are derecognized or reclassified, the cumulative gain or loss previously recognized in other comprehensive income is reclassified from equity to profit or loss. Except for above, all other financial assets are measured at fair value through profit or loss. However, the Company may make an irrevocable election to present subsequent changes in the fair value of an equity investment (that is not held for trading) in other comprehensive income, with only dividend income generally recognized in profit or loss. No subsequent impairment assessment is required, and the cumulative gain or loss previously recognized in other comprehensive income cannot be reclassified from equity to profit or loss. The impairment of financial assets IFRS 9 requires that impairment loss on financial assets is recognized by using the “Expected Credit Losses Model”. The credit loss allowance is required for financial assets measured at amortized cost, financial assets mandatorily measured at FVTOCI, lease receivables, contract assets arising from IFRS 15 “Revenue from Contracts with Customers”, certain written loan commitments and financial guarantee contracts. A loss allowance for the 12-month expected credit losses is required for a financial asset if its credit risk has not increased significantly since initial recognition. A loss allowance for full lifetime expected credit losses is required for a financial asset if its credit risk has increased significantly since initial recognition and is not low. However, a loss allowance for full lifetime expected credit losses is required for trade receivables that do not constitute a financing transaction. For purchased or originated credit-impaired financial assets, the Company takes into account the expected credit losses on initial recognition in calculating the credit-adjusted

250

effective interest rate. Subsequently, any changes in expected losses are recognized as a loss allowance with a corresponding gain or loss recognized in profit or loss. Hedge accounting The main changes in hedge accounting amended the application requirements for hedge accounting to better reflect the entity’s risk management activities. Compared with IAS 39, the main changes include: (1) enhancing types of transactions eligible for hedge accounting, specifically broadening the risk eligible for hedge accounting of non-financial items; (2) changing the way hedging derivative instruments are accounted for to reduce profit or loss volatility; and (3) replacing retrospective effectiveness assessment with the principle of economic relationship between the hedging instrument and the hedged item. 2) Amendments to IAS 36 “Recoverable Amount Disclosures for Non-financial Assets” In issuing IFRS 13 “Fair Value Measurement”, the IASB made some consequential amendments to the disclosure requirements in IAS 36 “Impairment of Assets”, introducing a requirement to disclose in every reporting period the recoverable amount of an asset or each cash-generating unit. The amendment clarifies that the disclosure of such recoverable amount is required during the period when an impairment loss has been recognized or reversed. Furthermore, the Company is required to disclose the discount rate used in current and previous measurements of the recoverable amount based on fair value less costs of disposal measured using a present value technique. 3) IFRIC 21 “Levies” IFRIC 21 provides guidance on when to recognize a liability for a levy imposed by a government. It addresses the accounting for a liability whose timing and amount is certain and the accounting for a provision whose timing or amount is not certain. The Company accrues related liability when the transaction or activity that triggers the payment of the levy occurs. Therefore, if the obligating event occurs over a period of time (such as generation of revenue over a period of time), the liability is recognized progressively. If an obligation to pay a levy is triggered upon reaching a minimum threshold (such as a minimum amount of revenue or sales generated), the liability is recognized when that minimum threshold is reached. 4) Annual Improvements to IFRSs:

2010-2012 Cycle

Several standards including IFRS 2 “Share-based Payment”, IFRS 3 “Business Combinations” and IFRS 8 “Operating Segments” were amended in this annual improvement. The amended IFRS 2 changes the definitions of “vesting condition” and “market condition” and adds definitions for “performance condition” and “service condition”. The amendment clarifies that a performance target can be based on the operations (i.e. a non-market condition) of the Company or another entity in the same group or the market price of the equity instruments of the Company or another entity in the same group (i.e. a market condition); that a performance target can relate either to the performance of the Company as a whole or to some part of it (e.g. a division); and that the period for achieving a performance condition must not extend beyond the end of the related service period. In addition, a share market index target is not a performance condition because it not only reflects the performance of the Company, but also of other entities outside the Company.

Financial Information

IFRS 3 was amended to clarify that contingent consideration should be measured at fair value, irrespective of whether the contingent consideration is a financial instrument within the scope of IFRS 9 or IAS 39. Changes in fair value should be recognized in profit or loss. The amended IFRS 8 requires an entity to disclose the judgments made by management in applying the aggregation criteria to operating segments, including a description of the operating segments aggregated and the economic indicators assessed in determining whether the operating segments have “similar economic characteristics”. The amendment also clarifies that a reconciliation of the total of the reportable segments’ assets to the entity’s assets should only be provided if the segments’ assets are regularly provided to the chief operating decision-maker. IFRS 13 was amended to clarify that the issuance of IFRS 13 did not remove the ability to measure short-term receivables and payables with no stated interest rate at their invoice amounts without discounting, if the effect of not discounting is immaterial. IAS 24 was amended to clarify that a management entity providing key management personnel services to the Company is a related party of the Company. Consequently, the Company is required to disclose as related party transactions the amounts incurred for the service paid or payable to the management entity for the provision of key management personnel services. However, disclosure of the components of such compensation is not required. 5) Annual Improvements to IFRSs:

2011-2013 Cycle

Several standards including IFRS 3, IFRS 13 and IAS 40 “Investment Property” were amended in this annual improvement. IFRS 3 was amended to clarify that IFRS 3 does not apply to the accounting for the formation of all types of joint arrangements in the financial statements of the joint arrangement itself. The scope in IFRS 13 of the portfolio exception for measuring the fair value of a group of financial assets and financial liabilities on a net basis was amended to clarify that it includes all contracts that are within the scope of, and accounted for in accordance with, IAS 39 or IFRS 9, even if those contracts do not meet the definitions of financial assets or financial liabilities within IAS 32. IAS 40 was amended to clarify that IAS 40 and IFRS 3 are not mutually exclusive and application of both standards may be required to determine whether the investment property acquired is acquisition of an asset or a business combination.

6) Amendments to IAS 16 and IAS 38 “Clarification of Acceptable Methods of Depreciation and Amortization” The entity should use appropriate depreciation and amortization method to reflect the pattern in which the future economic benefits of the property, plant and equipment and intangible asset are expected to be consumed by the entity. The amended IAS 16 “Property, Plant and Equipment” requires that a depreciation

252

method that is based on revenue that is generated by an activity that includes the use of an asset is not appropriate. The amended standard does not provide any exception from this requirement. The amended IAS 38 “Intangible Assets” requires that there is a rebuttable presumption that an amortization method that is based on revenue that is generated by an activity that includes the use of an intangible asset is not appropriate. This presumption can be overcome only in the following limited circumstances: a) In which the intangible asset is expressed as a measure of revenue (for example, the contract that specifies the entity’s use of the intangible asset will expire upon achievement of a revenue threshold); or b) When it can be demonstrated that revenue and the consumption of the economic benefits of the intangible asset are highly correlated. An entity should apply the aforementioned amendments prospectively for annual periods beginning on or after the effective date. 7) IFRS 15 “Revenue from Contracts with Customers” IFRS 15 establishes principles for recognizing revenue that apply to all contracts with customers, and will supersede IAS 18 “Revenue”, IAS 11 “Construction Contracts” and a number of revenue-related interpretations from January 1, 2017. When applying IFRS 15, an entity shall recognize revenue by applying the following steps: a) b) c) d) e)

Identify the contract with the customer; Identify the performance obligations in the contract; Determine the transaction price; Allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contracts; and Recognize revenue when the entity satisfies a performance obligation.

When IFRS 15 is effective, an entity may elect to apply this Standard either retrospectively to each prior reporting period presented or retrospectively with the cumulative effect of initially applying this Standard recognized at the date of initial application. 8) Amendments to IFRS 10 and IAS 28 “Sale or Contribution of Assets between an Investor and its Associate or Joint Venture” The amendments stipulated that when an entity sells or contributes assets that constitute a business (as defined in IFRS 3) to an associate or joint venture, the gain or loss resulting from the transaction is recognized in full. Also, when an entity loses control of a subsidiary that contains a business but retains significant influence or joint control, the gain or loss resulting from the transaction is recognized in full. Conversely, when an entity sells or contributes assets that do not constitute a business to an associate or joint venture, the gain or loss resulting from the transaction is recognized only to the extent of the unrelated investors’ interest in the associate or joint venture, i.e. the entity’s share of the gain or loss is eliminated. Also, when an entity loses control of a subsidiary that does not contain a business but retains significant influence or joint control

253

Financial Information

in an associate or a joint venture, the gain or loss resulting from the transaction is recognized only to the extent of the unrelated investors’ interest in the associate or joint venture, i.e. the entity’s share of the gain or loss is eliminated. 9) Annual Improvements to IFRSs:

2012-2014 Cycle

Several standards including IFRS 5 “Non-current assets held for sale and discontinued operations”, IFRS 7, IAS 19 and IAS 34 were amended in this annual improvement. IFRS 5 was amended to clarify that reclassification between non-current assets (or disposal Company) “held for sale” and non-current assets “held for distribution to owners” does not constitute a change to a plan of sale or distribution. Therefore, previous accounting treatment is not reversed. The amendment also explains that assets that no longer meet the criteria for “held for distribution to owners” and do not meet the criteria for “held for sale” should be treated in the same way as assets that cease to be classified as held for sale. The amendments to IFRS 7 provide additional guidance to clarify whether a servicing contract is continuing involvement in a transferred asset. 10) Amendment to IAS 1 “Disclosure Initiative” The amendment clarifies that the financial statements should be prepared for the purpose of disclosing material information. To improve the understandability of its financial statements, the Company should disaggregate the disclosure of material items into their different natures or functions, and disaggregate material information from immaterial information. The amendment further clarifies that the Company should consider the understandability and comparability of its financial statements to determine a systematic order in presenting its footnotes. As of the date the financial statements were authorized for issue, the Company is continuing to assess the possible impact that the application of other standards and interpretations will have on the Company’s financial position and financial performance, and will disclose the relevant impact when the assessment is complete. 4. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICY a. Statement of compliance The parent company only financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the Regulations Governing the Preparation of Financial Reports by Securities Issuers (the “Regulations”). b. Basis of preparation The financial statements have been prepared on the historical cost basis except for financial instruments that are measured at fair values. Historical cost is generally based on the fair value of the consideration given in exchange for assets. When preparing its parent company only financial statements, the Company used equity method to account for its investment in subsidiaries and associates. In order for the amounts

254

of the net profit for the year, other comprehensive income for the year and total equity in the parent company only financial statements to be the same with the amounts attributable to the owner of the Company in its consolidated financial statements, adjustments arising from the differences in accounting treatment between parent company only basis and consolidated basis were made to investments accounted for by equity method, share of profit or loss of subsidiaries and associates, share of other comprehensive income of subsidiaries and associates and related equity items, as appropriate, in the parent company only financial statements. c. Classification of current and non-current assets and liabilities Current assets include cash and cash equivalents and those assets held primarily for trading purposes or to be realized within twelve months after the reporting period, unless the asset is to be used for an exchange or to settle a liability, or otherwise remains restricted, at more than twelve months after the reporting period. Property, plant and equipment, intangible assets, other than assets classified as current are classified as non-current. Current liabilities are obligations incurred for trading purposes or to be settled within twelve months after the reporting period and liabilities that do not have an unconditional right to defer settlement for at least twelve months after the reporting period. Liabilities that are not classified as current are classified as non-current. Terms of a liability that could, at the option of the counterparty, result in its settlement by the issue of equity instruments do not affect its classification. d. Foreign currencies In preparing the financial statements of each individual company entity, transactions in currencies other than the entity’s functional currency are recognized at the rates of exchange prevailing at the dates of the transactions. At the end of each reporting period, monetary items denominated in foreign currencies are retranslated at the rates prevailing at that date. Exchange differences on monetary items arising from settlement or translation are recognized in profit or loss in the period in which they arise except for: 1) Exchange differences on foreign currency borrowings relating to assets under construction for future productive use, which are included in the cost of those assets when they are regarded as an adjustment to interest costs on those foreign currency borrowings; 2) Exchange differences on transactions entered into in order to hedge certain foreign currency risks; and 3) Exchange differences on monetary items receivable from or payable to a foreign operation for which settlement is neither planned nor likely to occur (therefore forming part of the net investment in the foreign operation), which are recognized initially in other comprehensive income and reclassified from equity to profit or loss on disposal of the net investments. Non-monetary items measured at fair value that are denominated in foreign currencies are retranslated at the rates prevailing at the date when the fair value was determined. Exchange differences arising on the retranslation of non-monetary items are included in profit or loss for the period except for exchange differences arising from the retranslation of non-monetary items in respect of which gains and losses are recognized directly in other comprehensive income, in which case, the exchange differences are also recognized directly in other

255

Financial Information

comprehensive income. Non-monetary items that are measured at historical cost in a foreign currency are not retranslated. For the purposes of presenting financial statements, the assets and liabilities of the Company’s foreign operations (including of the subsidiaries, associates, joint ventures or branches operations in other countries with currencies used different from the Company) are translated into New Taiwan dollars using exchange rates prevailing at the end of each reporting period. Income and expense items are translated at the average exchange rates for the period. Exchange differences arising are recognized in other comprehensive income (attributed to the owners of the Company and non-controlling interests as appropriate). On the disposal of a foreign operation (i.e. a disposal of the Company’s entire interest in a foreign operation, or a disposal involving loss of control over a subsidiary that includes a foreign operation, a disposal involving loss of joint control over a jointly controlled entity that includes a foreign operation, or a disposal involving loss of significant influence over an associate that includes a foreign operation), all of the exchange differences accumulated in equity in respect of that operation attributable to the owners of the Company are reclassified to profit or loss. In relation to a partial disposal of a subsidiary that does not result in the Company losing control over the subsidiary, the proportionate share of accumulated exchange differences are re-attributed to non-controlling interests of the subsidiary and are not recognized in profit or loss. For all other partial disposals, the proportionate share of the accumulated exchange differences recognized in other comprehensive income is reclassified to profit or loss. e. Inventories Inventories consist of raw materials, supplies, finished goods and work-in-process and are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Inventory write-downs are made by item, except where it may be appropriate to group similar or related items. Net realizable value is the estimated selling price of inventories less all estimated costs of completion and costs necessary to make the sale. Inventories are recorded at weighted-average cost on the balance sheet date. f. Investments accounted for using equity method Investments in subsidiaries, associates and jointly controlled entities are accounted for by the equity method. 1) Investment in subsidiaries

Subsidiaries (including special purpose entities) are the entities controlled by the Company. Under the equity method, the investment is initially recognized at cost and the carrying amount is increased or decreased to recognize the Company's share of the profit or loss and other comprehensive income of the subsidiary after the date of acquisition. Besides, the Company also recognizes the Company’s share of the change in other equity of the subsidiary.

256

Changes in the Company’s ownership interests in subsidiaries that do not result in the Company’s loss of control over the subsidiaries are accounted for as equity transactions. Any difference between the carrying amounts of the investment and the fair value of the consideration paid or received is recognized directly in equity. When the Company’s share of losses of a subsidiary equals or exceeds its interest in that subsidiary (which includes any carrying amount of the investment in subsidiary accounted for by the equity method and long-term interests that, in substance, form part of the Company’s net investment in the subsidiary), the Company continues recognizing its share of further losses. The acquisition cost in excess of the acquisition-date fair value of the identifiable net assets acquired is recognized as goodwill. Goodwill is not amortized. The acquisition-date fair value of the net identifiable assets acquired in excess of the acquisition cost is recognized immediately in profit or loss. When testing for impairment, the cash-generating unit is determined based on the financial statements as a whole by comparing its recoverable amount with its carrying amount. If the recoverable amount of the asset subsequently increases, the reversal of the impairment loss is recognized as a gain, but the increased carrying amount of an asset after a reversal of an impairment loss shall not exceed the carrying amount that would have been determined (net of amortization or depreciation) had no impairment loss been recognized on the asset in prior years. An impairment loss recognized on goodwill shall not be reversed in a subsequent period. When the Company ceases to have control over a subsidiary, any retained investment is measured at fair value at that date and the difference between the previous carrying amount of the subsidiary attributable to the retained interest and its fair value is included in the determination of the gain or loss. Furthermore, the Company accounts for all amounts previously recognized in other comprehensive income in relation to that subsidiary on the same basis as would be required if the Company had directly disposed of the related assets or liabilities. Profits and losses from downstream transactions with a subsidiary are eliminated in full. Profits and losses from upstream with a subsidiary and sidestream transactions between subsidiaries are recognized in the Company’s financial statements only to the extent of interests in the subsidiary that are not related to the Company. 2) Investment in associates An associate is an entity over which the Company has significant influence and that is neither a subsidiary nor an interest in a joint venture.

The results and assets and liabilities of associates are incorporated in these financial statements using the equity method of accounting. Under the equity method, an investment in an associate is initially recognized at cost and adjusted thereafter to recognize the Company’s share of the profit or loss and other comprehensive income of the associate. The Company also recognizes the changes in the Company’s share of equity of associates. When the Company subscribes for additional new shares of the associate, at a percentage different from its existing ownership percentage, the resulting carrying amount of the

257

Financial Information

investment differs from the amount of the Company’s proportionate interest in the associate. The Company records such a difference as an adjustment to investments with the corresponding amount charged or credited to capital surplus. If the Company’s ownership interest is reduced due to the additional subscription of the new shares of associate, the proportionate amount of the gains or losses previously recognized in other comprehensive income in relation to that associate is reclassified to profit or loss on the same basis as would be required if the investee had directly disposed of the related assets or liabilities. When the adjustment should be debited to capital surplus, but the capital surplus recognized from investments accounted for by the equity method is insufficient, the shortage is debited to retained earnings. When the Company’s share of losses of an associate equals or exceeds its interest in that associate, the Company discontinues recognizing its share of further losses. Additional losses and liabilities are recognized only to the extent that the Company has incurred legal obligations, or constructive obligations, or made payments on behalf of that associate. Any excess of the cost of acquisition over the Company’s share of the net fair value of the identifiable assets and liabilities of an associate recognized at the date of acquisition is recognized as goodwill, which is included within the carrying amount of the investment and is not amortized. Any excess of the Company’s share of the net fair value of the identifiable assets and liabilities over the cost of acquisition, after reassessment, is recognized immediately in profit or loss. The entire carrying amount of the investment (including goodwill) is tested for impairment as a single asset by comparing its recoverable amount with its carrying amount. Any impairment loss recognized forms part of the carrying amount of the investment. Any reversal of that impairment loss is recognized to the extent that the recoverable amount of the investment subsequently increases. The Company discontinues the use of the equity method from the date on which it ceases to have significant influence over the associate. Any retained investment is measured at fair value at that date and the fair value is regarded as its fair value on initial recognition as a financial asset. The difference between the previous carrying amount of the associate attributable to the retained interest and its fair value is included in the determination of the gain or loss on disposal of the associate. The Company accounts for all amounts previously recognized in other comprehensive income in relation to that associate on the same basis as would be required if that associate had directly disposed of the related assets or liabilities. When the Company transacts with its associate, profits and losses resulting from the transactions with the associate are recognized in the Company’s financial statements only to the extent of interests in the associate that are not related to the Company. g. Property, plant and equipment Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost, less subsequent accumulated depreciation and subsequent accumulated impairment loss. Properties in the course of construction for production, supply or administrative purposes are carried at cost, less any recognized impairment loss. Cost includes professional fees and borrowing costs eligible for capitalization. Such properties are depreciated and classified to the appropriate categories of property, plant and equipment when completed and ready for intended use.

258

Depreciation is recognized using the straight-line method. Each significant part is depreciated separately. The estimated useful lives, residual values and depreciation method are reviewed at the end of each reporting period, with the effect of any changes in estimate accounted for on a prospective basis. Any item of property, plant and equipment is derecognized upon disposal or when no future economic benefits are expected to arise from the continued use of the asset. Any gain or loss arising on the disposal or retirement of an item of property, plant and equipment is determined as the difference between the sales proceeds and the carrying amount of the asset and is recognized in profit or loss. h. Investment properties Investment properties are properties held to earn rentals and/or for capital appreciation (including property under construction for such purposes). Investment properties also include land held for a currently undetermined future use. Investment properties are measured initially at cost, including transaction costs. Subsequent to initial recognition, investment properties are measured at cost less accumulated depreciation and accumulated impairment loss. Depreciation is recognized using the straight-line method. Any gain or loss arising on derecognition of the property is calculated as the difference between the net disposal proceeds and the carrying amount of the asset and is included in profit or loss in the period in which the property is derecognized. i.

Intangible assets Intangible assets are measured initially at cost and subsequently measured at cost less accumulated amortization and accumulated impairment loss. Amortization is recognized on a straight-line basis. The estimated useful life, residual value, and amortization method are reviewed at the end of each reporting period, with the effect of any changes in estimate accounted for on a prospective basis. The residual value of an intangible asset with a finite useful life shall be assumed to be zero unless the Company expects to dispose of the intangible asset before the end of its economic life. Intangible assets with indefinite useful lives that are acquired separately are measured at cost less accumulated impairment loss. An intangible asset is derecognized on disposal, or when no future economic benefits are expected from use or disposal. Gains or losses arising from derecognition of an intangible asset, measured as the difference between the net disposal proceeds and the carrying amount of the asset, are recognized in profit or loss when the asset is derecognized.

j.

Impairment of tangible and intangible assets other than goodwill At the end of each reporting period, the Company reviews the carrying amounts of its tangible and intangible assets, excluding goodwill, to determine whether there is any indication that those assets have suffered an impairment loss. If any such indication exists, the recoverable amount of the asset is estimated in order to determine the extent of the impairment loss. When it is not possible to estimate the recoverable amount of an individual asset, the Company estimates the recoverable amount of the cash-generating unit to which the asset belongs. Corporate assets are allocated to the individual cash-generating units on a reasonable and consistent basis of allocation.

259

Financial Information

Recoverable amount is the higher of fair value less costs to sell and value in use. If the recoverable amount of an asset or cash-generating unit is estimated to be less than its carrying amount, the carrying amount of the asset or cash-generating unit is reduced to its recoverable amount. When an impairment loss subsequently is reversed, the carrying amount of the asset or cash-generating unit is increased to the revised estimate of its recoverable amount, but only to the extent of the carrying amount that would have been determined had no impairment loss been recognized for the asset or cash-generating unit in prior years. A reversal of an impairment loss is recognized immediately in profit or loss. k. Financial instruments Financial assets and financial liabilities are recognized when a company entity becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the instruments. Financial assets and financial liabilities are initially measured at fair value. Transaction costs that are directly attributable to the acquisition or issue of financial assets and financial liabilities (other than financial assets and financial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss) are added to or deducted from the fair value of the financial assets or financial liabilities, as appropriate, on initial recognition. Transaction costs directly attributable to the acquisition of financial assets or financial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss are recognized immediately in profit or loss. Financial assets All regular way purchases or sales of financial assets are recognized and derecognized on a trade date basis. 1) Measurement category The categories of financial assets held by the Company are financial assets at fair value through profit or loss, available-for-sale financial assets and loans and receivables. a) Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss Financial assets are classified as at fair value through profit or loss when the financial asset is either held for trading or it is designated as at fair value through profit or loss. Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss are stated at fair value, with any gains or losses arising on remeasurement recognized in profit or loss. The net gain or loss recognized in profit or loss incorporates any dividend or interest earned on the financial asset. b) Available-for-sale financial assets Available-for-sale financial assets are non-derivatives that are either designated as available-for-sale or are not classified as loans and receivables, held-to-maturity investments or financial assets at fair value through profit or loss. Available-for-sale financial assets are measured at fair value. Changes in the carrying amount of available-for-sale monetary financial assets relating to changes in foreign currency exchange rates, interest income calculated using the effective interest method and dividends on available-for-sale equity investments are recognized in profit

260

or loss. Other changes in the carrying amount of available-for-sale financial assets are recognized in other comprehensive income and will be reclassified to profit or loss when the investment is disposed of or is determined to be impaired. Dividends on available-for-sale equity instruments are recognized in profit or loss when the Company’s right to receive the dividends is established. Available-for-sale equity investments that do not have a quoted market price in an active market and whose fair value cannot be reliably measured and derivatives that are linked to and must be settled by delivery of such unquoted equity investments are measured at cost less any identified impairment loss at the end of each reporting period and are presented in a separate line item as financial assets carried at cost. If, in a subsequent period, the fair value of the financial assets can be reliably measured, the financial assets are remeasured at fair value. The difference between carrying amount and fair value is recognized in profit or loss or other comprehensive income on financial assets. Any impairment losses are recognized in profit and loss. c) Loans and receivables Loans and receivables (including trade receivables, cash and cash equivalent, and debt investments with no active market) are measured at amortized cost using the effective interest method, less any impairment, except for short-term receivables when the effect of discounting is immaterial. Cash equivalent includes time deposits and placements with original maturities within three months from the date of acquisition, highly liquid, readily convertible to a known amount of cash and be subject to an insignificant risk of changes in value. These cash equivalents are held for the purpose of meeting short-term cash commitments. 2) Impairment of financial assets Financial assets, other than those at fair value through profit or loss, are assessed for indicators of impairment at the end of each reporting period. Financial assets are considered to be impaired when there is objective evidence that, as a result of one or more events that occurred after the initial recognition of the financial asset, the estimated future cash flows of the investment have been affected. For financial assets carried at amortized cost, such as trade receivables and other receivables, assets are assessed for impairment on a collective basis even if they were assessed not to be impaired individually. Objective evidence of impairment for a portfolio of receivables could include the Company’s past experience of collecting payments, an increase in the number of delayed payments in the portfolio past the average credit period of 60 days, as well as observable changes in national or local economic conditions that correlate with default on receivables, and other situation. For financial assets carried at amortized cost, the amount of the impairment loss recognized is the difference between the asset’s carrying amount and the present value of estimated future cash flows, discounted at the financial asset’s original effective interest rate. For financial assets measured at amortized cost, if, in a subsequent period, the amount of the impairment loss decreases and the decrease can be related objectively to an event

261

Financial Information

occurring after the impairment was recognized, the previously recognized impairment loss is reversed through profit or loss to the extent that the carrying amount of the investment at the date the impairment is reversed does not exceed what the amortized cost would have been had the impairment not been recognized. For available-for-sale equity investments, a significant or prolonged decline in the fair value of the security below its cost is considered to be objective evidence of impairment. For all other financial assets, objective evidence of impairment could include: a) Significant financial difficulty of the issuer or counterparty; or b) Breach of contract, such as a default or delinquency in interest or principal payments; or c) It becoming probable that the borrower will enter bankruptcy or financial re-organization; or d) The disappearance of an active market for that financial asset because of financial difficulties. When an available-for-sale financial asset is considered to be impaired, cumulative gains or losses previously recognized in other comprehensive income are reclassified to profit or loss in the period. In respect of available-for-sale equity securities, impairment loss previously recognized in profit or loss are not reversed through profit or loss. Any increase in fair value subsequent to an impairment loss is recognized in other comprehensive income. In respect of available-for-sale debt securities, impairment loss are subsequently reversed through profit or loss if an increase in the fair value of the investment can be objectively related to an event occurring after the recognition of the impairment loss. For financial assets that are carried at cost, the amount of the impairment loss is measured as the difference between the asset’s carrying amount and the present value of the estimated future cash flows discounted at the current market rate of return for a similar financial asset. Such impairment loss will not be reversed in subsequent periods. The carrying amount of the financial asset is reduced by the impairment loss directly for all financial assets with the exception of trade receivables, where the carrying amount is reduced through the use of an allowance account. When a trade receivable are considered uncollectible, it is written off against the allowance account. Subsequent recoveries of amounts previously written off are credited against the allowance account. Changes in the carrying amount of the allowance account are recognized in profit or loss except for uncollectible trade receivables that are written off against the allowance account. 3) Derecognition of financial assets The Company derecognizes a financial asset only when the contractual rights to the cash flows from the asset expire, or when it transfers the financial asset and substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership of the asset to another party. On derecognition of a financial asset in its entirety, the difference between the asset’s

262

carrying amount and the sum of the consideration received and receivable and the cumulative gain or loss that had been recognized in other comprehensive income is recognized in profit or loss. Financial liabilities 1) Subsequent measurement Except the following situation, all the financial liabilities are measured at amortized cost using the effective interest method: Financial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss Financial liabilities are classified as at fair value through profit or loss when the financial liability is either held for trading or it is designated as at fair value through profit or loss. Financial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss are stated at fair value, with any gains or losses arising on remeasurement recognized in profit or loss. The net gain or loss recognized in profit or loss incorporates any interest paid on the financial liability. 2) Derecognition of financial liabilities The difference between the carrying amount of the financial liability derecognized and the consideration paid, including any non-cash assets transferred or liabilities assumed, is recognized in profit or loss. Derivative financial instruments The Company enters into a variety of derivative financial instruments to manage its exposure to interest rate and foreign exchange rate risks, including foreign exchange forward contracts, interest rate swaps and cross currency swaps. Derivatives are initially recognized at fair value at the date the derivative contracts are entered into and are subsequently remeasured to their fair value at the end of each reporting period. The resulting gain or loss is recognized in profit or loss immediately unless the derivative is designated and effective as a hedging instrument, in which event the timing of the recognition in profit or loss depends on the nature of the hedge relationship. When the fair value of derivative financial instruments is positive, the derivative is recognized as a financial asset; when the fair value of derivative financial instruments is negative, the derivative is recognized as a financial liability. Derivatives embedded in non-derivative host contracts are treated as separate derivatives when they meet the definition of a derivative, their risks and characteristics are not closely related to those of the host contracts and the contracts are not measured at fair value through profit or loss. l.

Hedge accounting The Company designates certain hedging instruments, which include derivatives, embedded derivatives and non-derivatives in respect of foreign currency risk, as either fair value hedges or cash flow hedges. Hedges of foreign exchange risk on firm commitments are accounted for as cash flow hedges.

263

Financial Information

Cash flow hedges The effective portion of changes in the fair value of derivatives that are designated and qualified as cash flow hedges is recognized in other comprehensive income and accumulated under the heading of cash flow hedging reserve. The gain or loss relating to the ineffective portion is recognized immediately in profit or loss. The associated gains or losses that were recognized in other comprehensive income are reclassified from equity to profit or loss as a reclassification adjustment in the line item relating to the hedged item in the same period when the hedged item affects profit or loss. If a hedge of a forecast transaction subsequently results in the recognition of a non-financial asset or a non-financial liability, the associated gains and losses that were recognized in other comprehensive income are removed from equity and are included in the initial cost of the non-financial asset or non-financial liability. Hedge accounting is discontinued prospectively when the Company revokes the designated hedging relationship, or when the hedging instrument expires or is sold, terminated, or exercised, or when it no longer meets the criteria for hedge accounting. The cumulative gain or loss on the hedging instrument that has been previously recognized in other comprehensive income from the period when the hedge was effective remains separately in equity until the forecast transaction occurs. When a forecast transaction is no longer expected to occur, the gain or loss accumulated in equity is recognized immediately in profit or loss. m. Provisions Provisions are recognized when the Company has a present obligation (legal or constructive) as a result of a past event, it is probable that the Company will be required to settle the obligation, and a reliable estimate can be made of the amount of the obligation. n. Revenue recognition Revenue from sales of goods is recognized when the Company has transferred to the buyer the significant risks and rewards of ownership of the goods, primarily upon shipment, because the earnings process has been completed and the economic benefits associated with the transaction have been realized or are realizable. The Company does not recognize sales revenue on materials delivered to subcontractors because this delivery does not involve a transfer of risks and rewards of materials ownership. Revenue is measured at the fair value of the consideration received or receivable. Revenue is reduced for estimated customer returns, rebates and other similar allowances. Allowance for sales returns and liability for returns are recognized at the time of sale based on the seller’s reliable estimate of future returns and based on past experience and other relevant factors. Sales of goods are recognized when goods are delivered and title has passed. 1) Rendering of services Service income is recognized when services are provided. Revenue from a contract to provide services is recognized by reference to the stage of completion of the contract. 2) Dividend and interest income Dividend income from investments is recognized when the shareholder’s right to receive payment has been established provided that it is probable that the economic benefits will

264

flow to the Company and the amount of income can be measured reliably. o. Leasing Leases are classified as finance leases whenever the terms of the lease transfer substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership to the lessee. All other leases are classified as operating leases. Rental income from operating leases is recognized on a straight-line basis over the term of the relevant lease. Operating lease payments are recognized as an expense on a straight-line basis over the lease term. Contingent rents arising under operating leases are recognized as an expense in the period in which they are incurred. p. Retirement benefit costs Payments to defined contribution retirement benefit plans are recognized as an expense when employees have rendered service entitling them to the contributions. For defined benefit retirement benefit plans, the cost of providing benefits is determined using the Projected Unit Credit Method, with actuarial valuations being carried out at the end of each reporting period. Past service cost is recognized immediately to the extent that the benefits are already vested, and otherwise is amortized on a straight-line basis over the average period until the benefits become vested. The retirement benefit obligation recognized in the balance sheets represents the present value of the defined benefit obligation as adjusted for unrecognized actuarial gains and losses and unrecognized past service cost, and as reduced by the fair value of plan assets. Any asset resulting from this calculation is limited to the unrecognized past service cost and actuarial losses, plus the present value of available refunds and reductions in future contributions to the plan. Curtailment or settlement gains or losses on the defined benefit plan are recognized when the curtailment or settlement occurs. q. Income tax Income tax expense represents the sum of the tax currently payable and deferred tax. 1) Current tax According to the Income Tax Law, an additional tax at 10% of unappropriated earnings is provided for as income tax in the year the shareholders approve to retain the earnings. Adjustments of prior years’ tax liabilities are added to or deducted from the current year’s tax provision. 2) Deferred tax Deferred tax is recognized on temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities in the financial statements and the corresponding tax bases used in the computation of taxable profit. Deferred tax liabilities are generally recognized for all taxable temporary differences. Deferred tax assets are generally recognized for all (deductible temporary differences and unused loss carry forward) to the extent that it is probable that taxable profits will be available against which those deductible temporary differences can be utilized. Such deferred tax assets and liabilities are not recognized if

265

Financial Information

the temporary difference arises from goodwill or from the initial recognition (other than in a business combination) of other assets and liabilities in a transaction that affects neither the taxable profit nor the accounting profit. Deferred tax liabilities are recognized for taxable temporary differences associated with investments in subsidiaries and associates, and interests in joint ventures, except where the Company is able to control the reversal of the temporary difference and it is probable that the temporary difference will not reverse in the foreseeable future. Deferred tax assets arising from deductible temporary differences associated with such investments and interests are only recognized to the extent that it is probable that there will be sufficient taxable profits against which to utilize the benefits of the temporary differences and they are expected to reverse in the foreseeable future. The carrying amount of deferred tax assets is reviewed at the end of each reporting period and reduced to the extent that it is no longer probable that sufficient taxable profits will be available to allow all or part of the asset to be recovered. A previously unrecognized deferred tax asset is also reviewed at the end of each reporting period and recognized to the to the extent that it has become probable that future taxable profit will allow the deferred tax asset to be recovered. Deferred tax liabilities and assets are measured at the tax rates that are expected to apply in the period in which the liability is settled or the asset realized, based on tax rates (and tax laws) that have been enacted or substantively enacted by the end of the reporting period. The measurement of deferred tax liabilities and assets reflects the tax consequences that would follow from the manner in which the Company expects, at the end of the reporting period, to recover or settle the carrying amount of its assets and liabilities. 5. CRITICAL ACCOUNTING JUDGMENTS AND KEY SOURCES OF ESTIMATION UNCERTAINTY In the application of the Company’s accounting policies, management is required to make judgments, estimates and assumptions about the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. The accounts include allowance for doubtful trade receivable accounts, inventory valuation losses, depreciation, impairment, pension, deferred tax assets, etc. The estimates and associated assumptions are based on historical experience and other factors that are considered to be relevant. Actual results may differ from these estimates. The estimates and underlying assumptions are audited on an ongoing basis. Revisions to accounting estimates are recognized in the period in which the estimate is revised if the revision affects only that period or in the period of the revision and future periods if the revision affects both current and future periods. The followings are the main assumptions and sources of estimation uncertainty at the end of financial reporting period: a. Deferred tax assets As of December 31, 2014 and 2013, the carrying amount of the deferred tax assets in relation to unused tax losses was NT$995,920 thousand and NT$1,017,000 thousand, respectively. The realizability of the deferred tax asset mainly depends on whether sufficient future profits or taxable temporary differences will be available. In cases where the actual future profits

266

generated are less than expected, a material reversal of deferred tax assets may arise, which would be recognized in profit or loss for the period in which such a reversal takes place. b. Write-down of inventory Net realizable value of inventory is the estimated selling price in the ordinary course of business less the estimated costs of completion and the estimated costs necessary to make the sale. The estimation of net realizable value is based on current market conditions and the historical experience from selling products of a similar nature. Changes in market conditions may have a material impact on the estimation of net realizable value. c. Recognition and measurement of defined benefit plans Accrued pension liabilities and the resulting pension expense under defined benefit pension plans are calculated using the Projected Unit Credit Method. Actuarial assumptions comprise the discount rate, rate of employee turnover, and long-term average future salary increase. Changes in economic circumstances and market conditions will affect these assumptions and may have a material impact on the amount of the expense and the liability. As of December 31, 2014 and 2013, the carrying amount of the accrued pension liabilities was NT$1,274,680 thousand and NT$1,197,044 thousand, respectively. 6.

For the years ended December 31, 2014 and 2013, the Company’s strategy for commodity futures contracts, forward exchange contracts and exchange rate swap contracts was to hedge exposures to fluctuations of essential materials’ prices and foreign exchange rates. However, those derivative financial instruments did not meet the criteria of hedge effectiveness; and therefore, they were not accounted for by hedge accounting.

Allowance for impairment loss based on estimated uncollectible amounts determined by reference to age of receivables, past default experience of the counterparties and an analysis of their current financial position. The concentration of credit risk was limited due to the fact that the customer base was large and unrelated. The aging of receivable that were past due not impaired was as follows: December 31 2014 Less than 90 days 91-180 days 181-365 days

Powertec Energy Corp. shares held by the Company had been recorded as “investments accounted for using equity method”. On November 27, 2013, the Company sold parts of its interest in Chin-Xin and lost control but still had significant influence. While Chin-Xin was excluded from consolidation, the Company lost significant influence on Powertec Energy Corp; thus, in November 2013, the financial asset has been transferred back to “financial assets measured at cost - non-current”. The Company participated in Powertec Energy Corp’s capital increase by cash on June 17, 2014. The investment was NT$700,000 thousand. The shares held by the Company were 302,483 thousand shares and the ownership percentage was 17.8% after the issuance. Management believed that fair value of the above unlisted equity investments held by the Company cannot be reliably measured due to the very wide range of reasonable fair value estimates; therefore, the investments were measured at cost less impairment at the end of reporting period. The Company recognized impairment loss on financial assets measured at cost of NT$538,000 thousand for the year ended December 31, 2013, after appropriate evaluation.

Market Pilot Limited was incorporated in July 2010 as an investment holding company. Due to operating losses, as of December 31, 2014, the equity has become negative. Because the recognized losses exceeded the equity interest, except for NT$1 thousand retained in investments accounted for using equity method, the remaining amount of NT$366,137 thousand was recorded as other non-current liabilities - investment with credit balance. Winbond Electronics Corp. (“WEC”) designs, develops, manufactures and sells very large scale integration (VLSI) integrated circuits (ICs) used in a variety of microelectronic applications. The Company sold 10,000 thousand shares of WEC to third parties at market value on the Taiwan Stock Exchange in December 2014 and resulted in disposal gain of NT$7,054 thousand.

The estimates and assumptions used by the Company were consistent with those that market participants would use in setting a price for the financial instrument. The fair values of interest rate swap contracts and exchange rate swap contracts were provided by the trading partners; the fair values were calculated for each contract individually. b.

c. Financial risk management objectives and policies The Company’s major financial instruments included equity investments, trade receivable, trade payables. The Company’s Corporate Treasury function provides services to the business, coordinates access to domestic and international financial markets, monitors and manages the financial risks relating to the operations of the Company through internal risk reports which analyze exposures by degree and magnitude of risks. These risks include market risk, credit risk and liquidity risk. The Company sought to minimize the effects of these risks by using derivative financial instruments to hedge risk exposures. The use of financial derivatives is governed by the Company’s policies approved by the board of directors, which provides written principles on foreign exchange risk, interest rate risk, credit risk, use of financial derivatives and non-derivative financial instruments, and investment of excess liquidity. Compliance with policies and exposure limits if reviewed by the internal auditors on a continuous basis. The Company did not enter into or trade financial instruments for speculative purposes. 1) Market risk The Company is exposed primarily to the financial risks of changes in foreign currency exchange rates and interest rates. The Company uses forward foreign exchange contracts and interest rate swaps contracts to hedge foreign currency risk and interest rate risk. There had been no change to the Company’s exposure to market risks or the manner in which these risks were managed and measured. a) Foreign currency risk The Company had foreign currency sales and purchases, which exposed the Company to foreign currency risk. Exchange rate exposures were managed within approved policy parameters utilizing forward foreign exchange contracts. It is the Company’s policy to negotiate the terms of the hedge derivatives to match the terms of the hedged item to maximize hedge effectiveness.

Sensitivity analysis The sensitivity analyses below shows the possible effect on profit and loss assuming a change in the interest rates at the end of the reporting period. If interest rates at end of the reporting period were higher by 1% and all other variables were held constant, the Company’s pre-tax income for the year ended December 31, 2014 would have been decreased by NT$133,955 thousand and the pre-tax loss for the year ended December 31, 2013 would have been increased by NT$151,801 thousand, respectively. 2) Credit risk Credit risk refers to the risk that counterparty will default on its contractual obligations resulting in financial loss to the Company. As at the end of the reporting period, the Company’s maximum exposure to credit risk which will cause a financial loss to the Company due to failure of counterparties to discharge their obligation and financial guarantees would equal to the following: a) The carrying amount of the respective recognized financial assets as stated in the condensed balance sheets; and b) The amount of contingent liabilities in relation to financial guarantee issued by the Company. The Company adopted a policy of only dealing with creditworthy counterparties and obtaining sufficient collateral, where appropriate, as a means of mitigating the risk of financial loss from defaults. The Company’s exposure and the credit ratings of its counterparties are continuously monitored and the aggregate value of transactions concluded is spread amongst the approved counterparties. Credit exposure is controlled by setting credit limits that are reviewed and approved by the risk management committee annually. In order to minimize credit risk, the management of the Company has delegated a team responsible for determination of credit limits, credit approvals and other monitoring procedures to ensure that follow-up action is taken to recover overdue receivables. In addition, the Company reviews the recoverable amount of each individual trade receivables at the end of the reporting period to ensure that adequate impairment losses are made for irrecoverable amounts. In this regard, the directors of the Company consider that the Company’s credit risk was significantly reduced.

298

3) Liquidity risk The Company manages liquidity risk by monitoring and maintaining a level of cash and cash equivalents deemed adequate to finance the Company’s operations and mitigate the effects of fluctuations in cash flows. In addition, management monitors the utilization of bank borrowings and ensures compliance with loan covenants. a) The Company’s non-derivative financial liabilities with their agreed repayment period were as follows: 1 Year

Review and Analysis of Financial Status, Financial Performance, and Risk Management

(13) Final and non-appealable, as well as pending major litigious, non-litigious or administrative lawsuit events involving the Company, the Company's Directors, Supervisors and the President during the most recent year and up to the annual report publication date: 1. With respect to pending litigious events as of the date of report, Chiao, Yu-Cheng, the Company's Vice Chairman, has made a reply to the Company as follows: (1) I am involved in only one pending lawsuit as of the date of your Company's annual report. (2) Description of the lawsuit: A. Facts, amount of claim, lawsuit start date, main parties concerned: The Securities and Futures Investor Protection Center (“SFIPC”) filed a lawsuit with Taiwan Taipei District Court on April 27, 2005 over misrepresentation of the financial statements of Pacific Electric Wire & Cable Co., Ltd. (“Pacific Electric”). The lawsuit names myself and others (including other directors, supervisors and accounting firm) as co-defendants on grounds that I acted as a director of Pacific Electric between 1999 and 2001 and SFIPC requests compensation for damages from the co-defendants (Case No.:Taiwan Taipei District Court (referred to as “Taipei District Court” hereunder) 94-Jing-Zi-#22). When SFIPC first initiated the action on April 27, 2005, it sought compensation in the amount of NT$7,910,422,313 from 277 defendants including Pacific Electric. SFIPC later added Fubon Life Insurance and Hsing Yo Investment to the list of defendants on June 21, 2005 bringing the number of defendants to 279. SFIPC subsequently made several expansions and reductions in the number of claims due to increases in the number of people appointing SFIPC as their representative in the class action suit and settlements reached with several defendants. The last filed claim was NT$7,836,447,750. So far, SFIPC has reached settlement with 248 defendants involving a total settlement amount of NT$196,100,000. The court intends to conduct one last preliminary proceeding on April 30, 2015 before deciding a date for oral argument proceedings. B. Current status: This case is currently in the first instance of proceedings in the Taipei District Court. C. My and my attorney's views and handling plan for the case: The case is still in the first instance of proceedings. Oral argument has begun, but is yet to be concluded. Thus my appointed attorney and I are not in a position to assess the results of the trial at the present time. D. Possible maximum loss and possible amount of indemnification from the case: Based on the settlement information provided by SFIPC, the amount of settlement reached between SFIPC and individual directors or supervisors of Pacific Electric ranges between NT$12,330,000 and NT$26,000,000. Thus even if I am later found to be liable for damages as a director of Pacific Electric at one time, my liability should not be too far off the amounts of settlement described above. E. I am not financially strapped or in danger of losing my good credit standing as of the date of this reply. An evaluation of the aforementioned lawsuit by the Company concludes that because the lawsuit is a personal affair of the Vice Chairman and does not involve the Company's finances

320

or business, it is not expected to have any material impact on the interests of the Company's shareholders or stock price.
