An Inconsequential Typo Was Identified in the Company's 2008 AGM Agenda

To UMC ADR Holders Who Have Received the Company's 2008 AGM Agenda,

The Company has found a typographic error included in "UMC 2007 Surplus Earning
Distribution Chart" as Attachment 2 to the Company's 2008 AGM Agenda. The
correct number for "Distribution Item 4, Employee cash bonuses" shall be
NT$286,541,418, instead of NT$268,541,418 that was erroneously included.
However, employee cash bonuses figures that are reported in meeting agenda,
attachment notes and meeting notices are all correct numbers. In addition, the
amount of total distribution will not be affected by the correction of this

Please contact IR@umc.com if you have further questions regarding to meeting
