"During the December quarter, AOS has made significant strides in the smartphone market with growing revenue at one of the world's leading manufacturers. In addition, we have achieved design wins in numerous Ultrabook programs with our advanced PairFET and EzBuck-II Power IC products."

"Additionally, we have been successfully penetrating into customers in the industrial, power supply, portable and game console markets with our new products such as XSFET, Molded Chip Scale, AlphaMOS2, AlphaIGBT and new DrMOS series. We believe that as the new design wins come to fruition, AOS will continue to gain strength and momentum."

Fiscal Q3, 2013 Business Outlook

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 $76 million and $80 million.
  • GAAP gross margin is expected to be in the range of 16% plus or minus 1%.
  • GAAP operating expense is expected to be in the range of $15 million to $16 million.

The above projection includes estimated share-based compensation expense of $1.2 million.

"While we continue to take actions to realign our cost structure due to the challenging business environment, including the reduction of capital spending and operating expense, we will persist in looking for ways to streamline our operations and optimize our business model," said Dr. Mike Chang, CEO of AOS. "We expect our reduced factory loading at both our front-end and back-end to negatively impact our margins in the short term. However we continue to be optimistic about our business opportunity beyond the March quarter supported by increasing design wins, bookings and backlog. During the March quarter we are keenly focused on tightly aligning the front-end and back-end capabilities to further improve our efficiencies throughout the company."

Conference Call and Webcast

AOS plans to conduct an investor teleconference and live webcast to discuss the financial results for the second quarter ended December 31, 2012 today, January 30, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. PDT / 5:00 p.m. EDT. To participate in the live call, analysts and investors should dial 877-312-8797 (or 253-237-1194 if outside the U.S.). To access the live webcast and the subsequent replay of the conference call, which will be available for seven days after the live call, go to the "Events & Presentations" section of the company's investor relations website, http://investor.aosmd.com.

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 amount of revenues, gross margin, operating expenses, operating income, net income, share-based compensation expenses, expectation with respect to the macroeconomic conditions, our ability to achieve profitability, our ability to accelerate technology and product development, expectation with respect to new market opportunities and design wins for our products and other information under the section entitled "Fiscal Q3, 2013 Business Outlook". 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 product, our ability to achieve design wins, the general business and economic conditions, the state of semiconductor industry and seasonality of our markets, and other risks as described in our SEC filings, including our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012 filed on August 31, 2012. 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 the U.S. GAAP, we disclose certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP gross margin, operating income, net income and diluted earnings per share ("EPS"). These supplemental measures exclude share-based compensation expenses that are non-cash charges and costs incurred for our U.S. GAAP conversion. We believe that non-GAAP financial measures can provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain non-cash and non-recurring 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, 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.
