Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (IW 1000/273), the world's top contract microchip maker, said Thursday net profits in the second quarter rose 16.3% from a year ago to $1.4 billion.

Net profit rose 24.9% from the previous quarter.

The company expected growth in the third quarter to come mainly from demand for high-end products.
