Business Outlook

Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal year 2012 is expected to be in the range of $37 to $41 million, representing a growth of approximately 0.5% to 11.4% compared to the second quarter of fiscal year 2012 and a decline of approximately 5.4% to a growth of 4.9% compared to the third quarter of fiscal year 2011. Gross margins are expected to be in the range of 27.0% to 30.0% of revenue. Operating expenses exclusive of share based compensation expenses and amortization of acquired intangible assets are expected to be approximately $7.8 million. We expect our effective income tax rate to range between 9.0% and 11.0%. We expect our capital expenditures to be approximately $7.0 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2012. The number of ADSs used to calculate GAAP earnings per share for the third quarter of fiscal year 2012 is anticipated to be approximately 19.0 million.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements that are based on current expectations, estimates, forecasts and projections of future performance based on management's judgment, beliefs, current trends, and anticipated product performance. These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, projected revenues, gross margins, operating expenses, income tax rate, capital expenditures and shares used to calculate earnings per share under the section titled "Business Outlook," statements regarding market demand and our expectation of continuing to grow our business and gain market share in the analog power management industry.  Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements. These factors include, but are not limited to, our ability to introduce or develop new and enhanced products that achieve market acceptance; the actual product performance in volume production; the quality and reliability of our products; our ability to achieve design wins; general business and economic conditions; our ability to identify and consummate strategic transactions; the state of the semiconductor industry and seasonality of our markets; and other risks and uncertainties as described in our filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), including our Annual Report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011 filed on April 25, 2012, and other filings with the SEC. Underlying assumptions subsequently proving to be incorrect or other unknown or unpredictable factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, level of activity, performance, or achievements. You should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. All information provided in this press release is as of today's date, unless otherwise stated, and we undertake no duty to update such information, except as required under applicable law.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our unaudited consolidated financial statements presented on a basis consistent with GAAP, we disclose certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP adjusted net income and non-GAAP EPS. These supplemental measures exclude share-based compensation expenses that are non-cash charges, amortization of acquired intangible assets and change in acquisition earn-out payment. We believe that non-GAAP financial measures can provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain non-cash expenses that are not indicative of our core operating results. In addition, our management uses non-GAAP measures to compare our performance relative to forecasts and to benchmark our performance externally against competitors. Our use of non-GAAP financial measures has certain limitations in that the non-GAAP financial measures we use may not be directly comparable to those reported by other companies. For example, the term used in this press release, non-GAAP adjusted net income, does not have a standardized meaning. Other companies may use the same or similarly named measures, but exclude different items, which may not provide investors with a comparable view of our performance in relation to other companies. We seek to compensate for this limitation by providing a detailed reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures in the tables attached to this press release. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.
