Pericom Semiconductor Updates Second Quarter Revenue Guidance

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/04/13 -- Pericom Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: PSEM), a worldwide supplier of high-speed integrated circuits and frequency control products, today announced updated revenue guidance for the second quarter of fiscal 2013, which ended December 29, 2012.

Pericom now expects sales to be $29.0 to $30.0 million compared to previous guidance of $30.5 to $34.5 million. Guidance for gross margins and operating expenses remain unchanged.

"The demand environment has remained weak throughout the quarter, therefore we are updating our guidance on revenues," commented Alex Hui, President and CEO of Pericom. "We have seen continued softness in end user demand resulting from challenging macroeconomic conditions in both our domestic and international markets."

No conference call will be held in conjunction with this guidance update. Additional information will be available when the Company reports its second quarter 2013 results during the week of January 28, 2013.
