We expect our capital expenditures to be approximately $3.0 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2013. As previously announced, on December 26, 2012, BCD Semiconductor entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger with Diodes Incorporated pursuant to which Diodes Incorporated will acquire BCD Semiconductor. The forecasts for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 provided in this paragraph do not account for any impact that may result from the completion of such acquisition.

Forward-Looking Statements

Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements.

Underlying assumptions subsequently proving to be incorrect or other unknown or unpredictable factors could also cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements.

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, gain or loss on valuation of warrant liabilities, impairment loss and expenses related to acquired intangible assets, impairment of equity investments and related tax impact. 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.
