The fourth quarter of 2022 saw a year-on-year decrease in the operating profit, gross profit and net profit attributable to shareholders of the listed company, mainly because earnings from both investments in affiliated businesses and financial assets dropped and less government subsidy-related income was recognized in this period.   

SMIC completed around 43.2 billion yuan of capital expenditure in 2022. By the end of the year, its monthly capacity has reached 714,000 for 8-inch equivalent wafers, with an annual capacity utilization rate of 92%.
