"As we reported in our updated guidance, demand across our three main end markets including consumer, computing and communications was softer than we expected when we entered the typical holiday buying season in September," said Chieh Chang, Chief Executive Officer of BCD Semiconductor. "While we continue to see sluggish demand heading into the fourth quarter, we remain focused on executing on our strategic initiatives. We are pleased with the market acceptance of several of our newly introduced products especially in the AC/DC product category. We also continue to be on track with our Fab 2 build-out and are looking forward to running test wafers in the first half of next year and generating revenues in the second half of next year."

Business Outlook

Revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2011 is expected to be in the range of $30 to $34 million, representing a decline of approximately 5.0% to a growth of 7.7% when compared to the fourth quarter of 2010 and a decline of approximately 23.3% to 13.0% when compared to the third quarter of 2011. Gross margins are expected to be in the range of 26% to 27% of revenue. Operating expenses exclusive of the share based compensation expenses and amortization of acquired intangible assets are expected to be in the range of $7.0 to $7.2 million. We expect our effective income tax rate to range between 7.0% and 9.0%. We expect our capital expenditures to be approximately $15.0 million in the fourth quarter. The number of ADS shares used to calculate GAAP earnings per share for the fourth quarter is anticipated to be approximately 19.3 million.

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, our Fab 2 build-out and our expectation of revenue generation next year.

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; 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, 2010 filed on May 25, 2011, and other filings with the SEC. 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.

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 net income and non-GAAP EPS. These supplemental measures exclude share-based compensation expenses that are non-cash charges, gain or loss on valuation of warrant liabilities and amortization of acquired intangible assets. 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, 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.
