Taipei, Feb. 16 (CNA) Siliconware Precision Industries Co. (SPIL, 矽品) has 201602160012t0001branded a second tender offer to buy its shares by bigger rival Advanced Semiconductor Engineering Inc. (ASE, 日月光) as a move that will hurt Taiwan and its IC backend services industry.

SPIL, Taiwan’s second largest IC packaging and testing company behind ASE, also argued on Monday that a possible merger between the two companies would hurt the country’s economic development.
