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.
