SAMSUNG Electronics Announces New 300mm Logic Line in Korea

SEOUL, Korea, June 7, 2012 - Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., a world leader in advanced semiconductor
solutions, today announced plans to build a new fabrication line in Hwaseong, South Korea, to meet the growing demands
for logic products.

Samsung will invest 2.25 trillion Korean won in the new fabrication line, which will break ground this month with a target timeline for
completion by the end of 2013. The new fabrication line will mainly produce highly advanced mobile application processors on
300mm wafers at 20nm and 14nm process nodes.

Along with Lines 9 and 14, which have been converted to System LSI fabrication earlier this year, the new line will help supply to
the expanding need for smart mobile solutions. With the new investments, as well as the addition of Line 16 in Hwaseong last
September and plans to build a new NAND Flash plant in Xi’an, China, Samsung looks to balance its global semiconductor
fabrication prowess.

Mr. Stephen Woo, president of Samsung Electronics’ System LSI Business, said, “With the construction of our new System LSI
fabrication line, Samsung will be able to respond to the demand of the global IT industry and strengthen our ability to support
our customers’ requirements even further.”

According to market research firm Gartner, the demand for system semiconductor chips for use in smartphones and tablets
will grow more than 20 percent on average from $23.4 billion in 2011 to $59.4 billion in 2016.
