TSMC says it sees no impact from earthquake at Hsinchu

[TAIPEI] Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co, the world's largest contract chipmaker, said there was no impact on its operations in Hsinchu, northwestern Taiwan, from an earthquake on Thursday.

A quake with a magnitude of 5.6 shook northeast Taiwan on Thursday, the US Geological Survey said, with tremors felt in the capital, Taipei.

The island's Central Weather Bureau said there was a smaller quake around Hsinchu just south of the capital where many Taiwanese technology companies have factories.

"At the point, TSMC sees no impact from the earthquake," Elizabeth Sun, a senior director at the company, told Reuters.
