"We delivered solid September quarter results demonstrating the steady implementation of our recovery plan," said Dr. Mike Chang, AOS chairman and CEO. "I am pleased to report a sequential revenue increase of over 7%. Our Power IC penetration into the Computing segment made a meaningful contribution to the revenue growth, while our market expansion strategy resulted in consistent improvement of sales in China. We are off to a solid start for growth in fiscal 2015. Despite the anticipated near-term seasonal demand fluctuation, we remain encouraged by the continuing momentum in our Power IC sales, geographical diversification, and key design in activities as we stay focused on the disciplined execution of our plan."

Business Outlook for Fiscal Q2 Ending December 31, 2014

The following statements are based on management's current expectations. These statements are forward-looking, and actual results may differ materially. AOS undertakes no obligation to update these statements.

  • Revenue is expected to be between $79 million and $83 million.
  • GAAP gross margin is expected to be in the range of 17.5% to 19.5%.
  • GAAP operating expenses are expected to be approximately $15.8 million plus or minus $1 million.
  • Tax expense is expected to be approximately $1.1 million to $1.3 million.

The above projections on GAAP gross margin and GAAP operating expenses include estimated share-based compensation expense of $1.2 million to $1.3 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, statements relating to projected amount of revenues, gross margin, operating income/(expenses), tax expenses, net income/(loss), and share-based compensation expenses, expectation with respect to our ability and strategy to develop new products, expand our sales, revenue and profitability, growth in revenue, seasonality fluctuation in customer demand, the execution of our recovery plan, and other information under the section entitled "Business Outlook for Fiscal Q2 Ending December 31, 2014". 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, the decline of the PC industry and our ability to respond to such decline, 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 product, our ability to achieve design wins, the general business and economic conditions, the state of semiconductor industry and seasonality of our markets, our ability to maintain factory utilization at a desirable level, and other risks as described in our SEC filings, including our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2014 filed on August 29, 2014. Other unknown or unpredictable factors or underlying assumptions subsequently proving to be incorrect 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 AOS undertakes 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 U.S. GAAP, we disclose certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP gross profit, gross margin, operating income/(loss), net income/(loss) and diluted earnings per share ("EPS"). These supplemental measures exclude share-based compensation expenses. 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 net income/(loss), 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 U.S. GAAP measures in the tables attached to this press release. Investors are encouraged to review the related U.S. GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures.
