said Mike Chang, CEO of AOS."Although the market remains challenging, AOS has
not wavered from its focus of movinginto new geographies and high value,
higher margin market segments," he continued.

"Our plan is simple: develop new technology platforms to maintain a leadership
position and develop new products to diversify into new market segmentsto
become a full-service power semiconductor company. Further accelerating our
diversification strategy we have launched the molded chip scale and XSFET™
product families, and are expanding into the IGBT market.In addition, we
introduced the new generation of EZBuck™ Power IC family targeting the fast
growing Ultrabook as well as server, high-end consumer goods and networking
markets."

Non-GAAP gross margin excludes share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP
operating income, net income and diluted EPS exclude share-based compensation
expenses and U.S. GAAP conversion costs. Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial

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, income tax provision, 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 for our products and other information under the section
entitled "Fiscal Q2, 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, our ability to integrate and ramp up production at the Oregon fab
facility; 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 audited and 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.
