Taipei, September 16, 2015 Advanced Semiconductor Engineering, Inc (NYSE: ASX, TSE: 2311) announced today that the company has donated NTD5 million (USD154,000) to the municipality of Tainan in aid of its efforts to combat the outbreak.

The number of dengue fever cases in Taiwan has continued to increase, with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) recording almost 10,000 cases since the beginning of summer in May. The worst hit municipality is Tainan where almost 90% of the cases were reported.

'The ASE flagship facilities are located in Kaohsiung, which is very close to Tainan,' said Jason Chang, Chairman of the ASE Group. 'Many of our employees and their families live in, and commute from Tainan. ASE would like to help the community in beefing up efforts to prevent any further increase in dengue cases.'
