”Our fourth quarter business was dampened by end market demand softness, and customers’ inventory adjustment, despite the continued ramp-up for our industry-leading 5nm technologies,” Wendell Huang, VP and CFO said after the results.

”Moving into first quarter 2023, as overall macroeconomic conditions remain weak, we expect our business to be further impacted by continued end market demand softness, and customers’ further inventory adjustment,” Huang looked ahead.

The company expects the revenue of between $16.7 billion and $17.5 billion for Q1.
