US$1,000 million aggregate principal amount of 3.875% notes due April 22, 2027, at an issue price per note of 99.829%;



US$500 million aggregate principal amount of 4.125% notes due April 22, 2029, at an issue price per note of 99.843%;

TSMC and TSMC Arizona intend to use the net proceeds of the sale of the Notes for general corporate purposes.

This document shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities nor will there be any sale of these securities in any state or other jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or other jurisdiction. An automatic shelf registration statement (including a prospectus) relating to the offering of Notes was filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on October 18, 2021, and became effective upon filing. The offering of the Notes was made only by means of a prospectus included in that registration statement, the preliminary prospectus supplement and the final prospectus supplement.

This document may contain statements that constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Words such as “propose,” “intend,” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Investors are cautioned that any such forward-looking statements, including statements related to the expectations regarding the size, number of tranches, timing and completion of the proposed offering, are not guarantees of future performance, results or the completion of any offering on any announced terms, or at all, and involve risks and uncertainties, and that actual results, developments or timing of events may differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, including financial community and rating agency perceptions of our business, operations, financial condition and the industries in which we operate, market conditions, the satisfaction of customary closing conditions related to the proposed offering and the factors described in the our filings with the SEC, including the section titled “Risk Factors” in the preliminary prospectus supplement, the final prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus and TSMC’s annual report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021, originally filed with the SEC on April 14, 2022 (which is incorporated by reference in the preliminary prospectus supplement, the final prospectus supplement and accompanying prospectus). We disclaim any obligation to update any forward-looking statements contained herein, except as required under applicable law.
