Net sales for the second quarter ended December 31, 2012 totaled $291.5
million, up 7.7% from $270.7 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2013.
No customer accounted for more than 10% of net sales during the quarter ended

Net income for the second quarter of fiscal year 2013 was $4.9 million or
$0.11 per diluted share, a decrease of 44.0% from the net income of $8.8
million, or $0.20 per diluted share in the same period a year ago. Included in
net income for the quarter is $2.9 million of stock-based compensation expense
(pre-tax). Excluding this item and the related tax effect, non-GAAP net income
for the second quarter was $7.8 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, compared
to non-GAAP net income of $11.2 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, in the
same quarter of the prior year. On a sequential basis, non-GAAP net income
increased from the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 by $4.8 million or $0.11
per diluted share.

Gross margin and non-GAAP gross margin for the second quarter were each 13.8%
compared to 17.1% in the same period a year ago. Non-GAAP gross margin was
13.0% for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013.

The Company's cash and cash equivalents and short and long term investments at
December 31, 2012 were $91.1 million compared to $83.8 million at June 30,
2012. Free cash flow in the six months ended December 31, 2012 was $2.8
million primarily due to a decrease in inventory for hard disk drives.

Business Outlook & Management Commentary

The Company expects net sales of $275 million to $295 million for the third
quarter of fiscal year 2013 ending March 31, 2013. The Company expects
non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of approximately $0.17 to $0.21 for the
third quarter.

“Net sales were a record high this quarter as we achieved 16.6% growth over
last year, further demonstrating our ability to grow market share even during
uncertain economic times. Our rackmount servers, especially FatTwin solutions,
and our storage products were key drivers of our revenue this quarter.
Profitability improved due to slightly better margins and better operating
expense leverage. We remain focused on improving profitability.” said Charles
Liang, CEO of Supermicro. "With our new architecture products and
opportunities in new markets, as well as our diverse customer base, we look
forward to continuing our market share growth."

It is currently expected that the outlook will not be updated until the
Company’s next quarterly earnings announcement, notwithstanding subsequent
developments. However, the Company may update the outlook or any portion
thereof at any time. Such updates will take place only by way of a news
release or other broadly disseminated disclosure available to all interested
parties in accordance with Regulation FD.

forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities

uncertainties that could cause our actual results to differ materially from
those anticipated. These include, but are not limited to: our dependence on
continued growth in the markets for X86, blade servers and embedded

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Non-GAAP gross margin discussed in this press release excludes stock-based
compensation expense for prior periods. Non-GAAP net income and net income per
share discussed in this press release exclude stock-based compensation expense
and the related tax effect of the applicable items. Management presents
non-GAAP financial measures because it considers them to be important
supplemental measures of performance. Management uses the non-GAAP financial
measures for planning purposes, including analysis of the Company's
performance against prior periods, the preparation of operating budgets and to
determine appropriate levels of operating and capital investments. Management
also believes that the non-GAAP financial measures provide additional insight
for analysts and investors in evaluating the Company's financial and
operational performance. However, these non-GAAP financial measures have
limitations as an analytical tool, and are not intended to be an alternative
to financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Pursuant to the
requirements of SEC Regulation G, detailed reconciliations between the
Company's GAAP and non-GAAP financial results is provided at the end of this
press release. Investors are advised to carefully review and consider this
information as well as the GAAP financial results that are disclosed in the
Company's SEC filings.
