Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation: Announcement of 2009 Annual Results

Our research and development in the Micro- Electromechanical System (MEMS) areas also advanced to risk production for the first customer in 2009. Other areas of phase- change memory, HV, mix-signal-signal, and radio frequency (RF) technologies were also successfully developed for smaller size, less power, and lower cost to meet customer demands.

We employ approximately 700 research and development engineers, with experience in the semiconductor industry and with advanced degrees from leading universities around the world and in China.


The Company settled all pending litigation with TSMC on November 9, 2009, with a Settlement Agreement (the "2009 Settlement Agreement"). The 2009 Settlement Agreement resolved all pending lawsuits between the parties and the parties have since dismissed all pending litigation between them, including the counterclaims the Company filed against TSMC in the California case, which had not yet been decided. The terms of the 2009 Settlement Agreement include the following:

    1) Entry of judgement and mutual release of all claims that were or could
       have been brought in the pending lawsuits;
    2) Termination of SMIC's obligation to make remaining payments under prior
       settlement agreement between the parties (approximately US$40 million);
    3) Payment to TSMC of an aggregate of US$200 million (with US$15 million
       paid upon execution, funded from SMIC's existing cash balances, and the
       remainder to be paid in installments over a period of four years -
       US$15 million payable by December 31, 2009, US$80 million payable by
       December 31, 2010, US$30 million payable by December 31, 2011, US$30
