Taiwanese foundry TSMC reports its January sales are down 58 percent year-over-year. The firm has been hit hard by the global economic downturn, and may see its utilization rate fall below 40 percent, which would be an historic low.
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC) posted unconsolidated sales of NT$12.44 billion ($367 million) in January, a decline of 5 percent from December 2008 and 59 percent from January 2008, the company said Tuesday (Feb. 10).

On a consolidated basis, TSMC's January sales were NT$13.13 billion ($387 million), down 9 percent sequentially and 58 percent year-to-year, the company said.
