Cypress Reports Fourth-Quarter and Year-End 2012 Results Business Wire SAN JOSE, Calif. -- January 24, 2013 Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: CY) today announced its fourth-quarter 2012 and fiscal year results, which included the following highlights and remarks from its president and CEO, T.J. Rodgers. *Revenue and earnings exceeded the preliminary results issued on January 8 *Ramtron acquisition completed in the fourth quarter *The divestiture of Cypress Envirosystems was completed *3.2 million shares repurchased in the fourth quarter; diluted share count at 7-year low *Dividend yield was 4.2% with favorable tax treatment conditions Fellow shareholders: Our revenue and earnings for the quarter are given below and compared with those of the prior quarter and prior year: (In thousands, except per-share data) NON-GAAP GAAP Q4 2012 Q3 2012 Q4 2011 Q4 2012 Q3 2012 Q4 2011 Revenue $180,283 $203,015 $242,373 $180,283 $203,015 $242,373 Gross 51.3 % 57.1 % 56.1 % 46.4 % 54.2 % 53.6 % margin Pretax 4.4 % 16.7 % 23.2 % (12.2 %) 6.8 % 12.0 % margin Net income $7,974 $32,322 $56,819 ($24,205 ) $14,332 $31,661 (loss) Diluted EPS $0.05 $0.20 $0.32 ($0.17 ) $0.09 $0.18 (loss per share) We did not perform well in 2012, including the fourth quarter. Yes, the economy is lackluster, but our performance was not good even in that environment. Our revenue was at the higher end of our preliminary financial announcement on January 8, 2013, but it decreased 11% sequentially—well below our expectations at the beginning of the fourth quarter. All divisions decreased sequentially and on a year-on-year basis. We are now cutting the company down structurally from four divisions to three to rapidly reduce our operating expenses. Our goal is to re-establish the drop-through earnings leverage that has characterized Cypress since the SunPower spinout. Our fourth-quarter book-to-bill of 0.88 was up sequentially in every division for the first time all year. We now expect our first quarter, due to the seasonality of our business, to be the revenue bottom of the current semiconductor slump, with revenue growth thereafter. BUSINESS REVIEW + Our non-GAAP^4 consolidated gross margin for the fourth quarter was 51.3%, down 5.8 percentage points from the previous quarter due mainly to product mix, factory absorption, and Ramtron charges and inventory reserves. Our GAAP fourth-quarter consolidated gross margin was 46.4%. + Net inventory at the end of the fourth quarter was $126.1 million, up $36.8 million from the third quarter. The inventory acquired from Ramtron (plus the related purchase accounting fair value adjustment) totaled $44.7 million. Excluding the Ramtron acquisition, inventory decreased 9% sequentially, and distributor inventory dollars on hand decreased 16% sequentially. + Cash and investments for the fourth quarter totaled $117.2 million, a decrease of $102.2 million from the prior quarter. During the quarter, we used $102.2 million to complete the acquisition of Ramtron, $32.3 million to repurchase 3.2 million shares, and paid our regular quarterly dividend of $16.1 million. Since we announced our $400-million stock repurchase program in September 2011, we have repurchased 23.1 million shares through December 30, 2012, and have approximately $88.4 million remaining under the authorized repurchase program.

The new devices offer industry-leading features, including the ultra-low power consumption (down to 50 microwatts per channel), high-accuracy proximity detection and the water-tolerance needed by customers in the consumer, white goods, and small home-appliance markets. Cypress is the No. 1 supplier of capacitive-sensing solutions with a market share greater than 4X that of the nearest competitor. + Cypress announced that startup Leap Motion Inc. selected Cypress’s EZ-USB^® FX3™ solution for its 3D motion sensing and control system. The breakthrough Leap Motion controller enables a user to operate a computer using free-form hand movements and intuitive gestures. FX3 rapidly transfers data from the system’s image sensors to a central processor, enabling an unparalleled 3D human interface. + Cypress announced two design wins for its proprietary 2.4-GHz wireless radio technologies: I-Rocks Technology’s wireless keyboard with a built-in trackpad, and ITON Technology’s RF module, which provides a turnkey solution for wireless mice, using a Cypress radio-on-chip. + Micron Technology and Cypress subsidiary AgigA Tech signed an agreement to develop and provide nonvolatile dual in-line memory module (nvDIMM) products, pin-compatible with the ubiquitous, super-high volume PC DIMM memory. Using AgigA Tech’s proprietary technology, these nvDIMMs provide performance, cost, and data security advantages for high-performance computing and storage platforms. + Cypress officially completed its merger with Ramtron International on November 20, 2012, and is now actively supporting Ramtron’s Ferroelectric Random Access Memory (F-RAM) products. The merger effectively gives Cypress the world’s broadest portfolio of fast-write nonvolatile memories, including F-RAMs and Cypress’s nonvolatile static random access memories (nvSRAMs). Ramtron’s F-RAMs are the industry’s lowest-power fast-write nonvolatile memories, and dominate the serial nvSRAM market. + Cypress announced that its Board of Directors approved a quarterly cash dividend of $0.11 per share, payable to holders of record of the company’s common stock as of the close of business on December 27, 2012. The dividend was paid on January 17, 2013.

Notes to Non-GAAP Financial Measures To supplement its consolidated financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, Cypress uses non-GAAP financial measures which are adjusted from the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures to exclude certain items, as described in details below. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional and useful way of viewing aspects of Cypress’s operations that, when viewed in conjunction with Cypress’s GAAP results, provide a more comprehensive understanding of the various factors and trends affecting Cypress’s business and operations. Non-GAAP financial measures used by Cypress include: • Gross margin; • Research and development expenses; • Selling, general and administrative expenses; • Operating income (loss); • Net income (loss); and • Diluted net income (loss) per share. Cypress uses each of these non-GAAP financial measures for internal managerial purposes, when providing its financial results and business outlook to the public, and to facilitate period-to-period comparisons. Management believes that these non-GAAP measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding Cypress’s operational and financial performance of current and historical results. Management uses these non-GAAP measures for strategic and business decision making, internal budgeting, forecasting and resource allocation processes. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures facilitate management’s internal comparisons to Cypress’s historical operating results and comparisons to competitors’ operating results. Cypress believes that providing these non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to the GAAP financial results, are useful to investors because they allow investors to see Cypress’s results “through the eyes” of management as these non-GAAP financial measures reflect Cypress’s internal measurement processes. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures enable investors to better assess changes in each key element of Cypress’s operating results across different reporting periods on a consistent basis. Thus, management believes that each of these non-GAAP financial measures provides investors with another method for assessing Cypress’s operating results in a manner that is focused on the performance of its ongoing operations. There are limitations in using non-GAAP financial measures because they are not prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. In addition, non-GAAP financial measures may be limited in value because they exclude certain items that may have a material impact upon Cypress’s reported financial results. Management compensates for these limitations by providing investors with reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. The presentation of non-GAAP financial information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. The non-GAAP financial measures supplement, and should be viewed in conjunction with, GAAP financial measures. Investors should review the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures as provided in the accompanying press release. As presented in the “Reconciliation of GAAP Financial Measures to Non-GAAP Financial Measures” tables in the accompanying press release, each of the non-GAAP financial measures excludes one or more of the following items: • Stock-based compensation expense. Stock-based compensation expense relates primarily to the equity awards such as stock options and restricted stock. Stock-based compensation is a non-cash expense that varies in amount from period to period and is dependent on market forces that are often beyond Cypress’s control. As a result, management excludes this item from Cypress’s internal operating forecasts and models. Management believes that non-GAAP measures adjusted for stock-based compensation provide investors with a basis to measure Cypress’s core performance against the performance of other companies without the variability created by stock-based compensation as a result of the variety of equity awards used by companies and the varying methodologies and subjective assumptions used in determining such non-cash expense. • Changes in value of Cypress’s key employee deferred compensation plan. Cypress sponsors a voluntary deferred compensation plan which provides certain key employees with the option to defer the receipt of compensation in order to accumulate funds for retirement. The amounts are held in a trust and Cypress does not make contributions to the deferred compensation plan or guarantee returns on the investment. Changes in the value of the investments under the plan are excluded from the non-GAAP measures. Management believes that such non-cash item is not related to the ongoing core business and operating performance of Cypress, as the investment contributions are made by the employees themselves. • Restructuring charges. Restructuring charges primarily relate to activities engaged by management to make changes related to its infrastructure in an effort to reduce costs. Restructuring charges are excluded from non-GAAP financial measures because they are not considered core operating activities and such costs have not historically occurred in each year. Although Cypress has engaged in various restructuring activities in the past, each has been a discrete event based on a unique set of business objectives. As such, management believes that it is appropriate to exclude restructuring charges from Cypress’s non-GAAP financial measures as it enhances the ability of investors to compare Cypress’s period-over-period operating results from continuing operations. • Acquisition-related expense. Acquisition-related expense primarily includes: (1) amortization of intangibles, which include acquired intangibles such as purchased technology, patents and trademarks, (2) costs such as advisory, legal, accounting and other professional or consulting fees related to acquisitions, (3) severance expense incurred in connection with acquisition-related headcount reduction efforts, and (4) earn-out compensation expense, which include compensation resulting from the achievement of milestones established in accordance with the terms of the acquisitions. In most cases, these acquisition-related charges are not factored into management’s evaluation of potential acquisitions or Cypress’s performance after completion of acquisitions, because they are not related to Cypress’s core operating performance. Adjustments of these items provide investors with a basis to compare Cypress against the performance of other companies without the variability caused by purchase accounting. • Investment-related gains/losses. Investment-related gains/losses primarily include: (1) impairment loss related to Cypress’s investment when it determines the decline in fair value is other-than-temporary in nature, and (2)gains/losses related to the sales of its debt and equity investments. These items are excluded from non-GAAP financial measures because they are not related to the core operating activities and operating performance of Cypress, and in most cases, such transactions have not historically occurred in every quarter. As such, management believes that it is appropriate to exclude investment-related gains/losses from Cypress’s non-GAAP financial measures, as it enhances the ability of investors to compare Cypress’s period-over-period operating results. • Impairment of assets. Cypress wrote down the book value of certain assets to their estimated fair value as management determined these assets will be donated, sold or will have no future benefit. Cypress excludes these items because the expense is not reflective of its ongoing operating results. Excluding this data allows investors to better compare Cypress’s period-over-period performance without such expense. • Tax effects. Cypress adjusts for the income tax effect that resulted from the non-GAAP adjustments as described above. Additionally, Cypress also excludes the impact of items that are related to historical activities in nature and not reflective of the ongoing operating results of Cypress. • Gain/losses on divestitures. Cypress recognizes gains and losses from the exiting or sale of certain non-strategic businesses that no longer align with Cypress’s long-term operating plan. Cypress excludes these items from its non-GAAP financial measures primarily because it is not reflective of the ongoing operating performance of Cypress’s business and can distort the period-over-period comparison. • Building donation. Cypress committed to donate an unused building to a charitable entity. Cypress excludes these items because the expense is not reflective of its ongoing operating results. Excluding this data allows investors to better compare Cypress’s period-over-period performance without such expense. Contact: Cypress Semiconductor Corp. Brad W.
