Published by the Darnell Group, PowerPulse is a leading power electronics
publication with a substantial global readership. According to coverage on
PowerPulse.Net about compiling the top ten list, the editorial staff at
PowerPulse "scoured the global power electronics industry, looking for
up-and-coming companies" to include. Akros was chosen, in part, for securing
additional financing in November 2012, adding to previously raised capital and
bringing the total to $11M. Another factor that figured into the decision was
the announcement in November of an interoperability collaboration with
Broadcom Corporation to support the emerging PoE (Power over Ethernet) 60-Watt

PowerPulse Publisher Jeffrey D. Shepard stated, "Akros Silicon has made
significant and consistent strides in the power electronics industry with its
innovative technologies and its ability to bring them to market. We applaud
their success in helping to reshape the power management arena with their
innovative approach to managing energy."

Parviz Ghaffaripour, Akros Silicon's President & Chief Executive Officer,
said, "We are delighted to be included in PowerPulse's list of companies to
watch in 2013. It is a testament that our efforts are being recognized by the
industry." He added, "Akros has established the foundation for Total Energy
Management (TEM) through the combination of our innovative GreenEdge™ digital
isolation and Energy$ense™ real-time power monitoring technologies. Our
recently announced interoperability collaboration with Broadcom places us at
the forefront of 60W/90W PoE implementation. We expect to continue to expand
our operations as market-leading companies continue to adopt our unique
approach to TEM."
