PART II. RULE 12b-25 (b) AND (c)

If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following should be completed. (Check box if appropriate.)

þ  (a) The reasons described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense;

þ (b) The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report on Form 10-K, Form 20-F, Form 11-K, Form N-SAR or Form N-CSR, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed due date; or the subject quarterly report or transition report on Form 10-Q or subject distribution report on Form 10-D, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date; and

(c) The accountant’s statement or other exhibit required by Rule 12b-25(c) has been attached if applicable.


As previously reported on Form 8-K, filed on January 10, 2005 with the Securities and Exchange Commission, on January 5, 2005 certain of Amkor Technology, Inc.’s wholly owned subsidiaries entered into an unconditional guarantee of Amkor’s obligations under its outstanding registered debt securities. As a result of these subsidiary guarantees and in order to comply with Rule 3-10(f) and (i) promulgated under Regulation S-X by the Securities and Exchange Commission, Amkor must include in the footnotes to its audited financial statements additional condensed consolidating financial information relating to the subsidiary guarantors. Amkor represents that due to the timing of the subsidiary guarantees and the complexity of the disclosures required, it is unable to file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2004 by the prescribed filing deadline without unreasonable effort or expense. Amkor will file its Form 10-K no later than fifteen calendar days following the prescribed due date.

If the answer is no, identify report(s).  þ Yes  o  No

(3) Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof?   þ Yes   o  No

If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.
