Applied Micro Circuits Corporation Reports Third Quarter Fiscal 2013 Financial
Results

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Applied Micro Circuits
Corporation (Nasdaq:AMCC) ("AppliedMicro" or the "Company") today reported its
financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2013, ended December 31,
2012.

  *Q3 FY2013 net revenues were $51.7 million, up approximately 12%
    sequentially and down approximately 8% year over year.
    
  *Q3 FY2013 non-GAAP EPS was $(0.10) per share on net loss of $6.9 million,
    compared to $(0.16) per share on a net loss of $10.5 million, for the
    second quarter of fiscal 2013.
    
  *Q3 FY2013 GAAP net loss was $71.6 million or $(1.08) per share compared to
    net loss of $21.6 million or $(0.33) per share for the second quarter of
    fiscal 2013.
    
  *Total cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments was approximately
    $84 million as of December 31, 2012 compared to $90 million as of
    September 30, 2012.
    
  *During the quarter, the Company taped out its ARM 64-bit X-Gene processor
    chip in 40nm. In mid-January 2013, the Company also taped-out a 28nm test
    chip version of the X-Gene chip which incorporated several other features
    in addition to the geometry shrink.
    
  *The performance simulations of AppliedMicro's ARM 64-Bit X-Gene processor
    have significantly exceeded the Company's expectations and resulted in an
    increase in the range of its estimated milestone-based payments under the
    Veloce merger agreement.The purchase price is now estimated to be in the
    range of $117 to $178.5 million, depending upon the achievement of
    multiple product development cycles and technical performance results.

Net revenues for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 were $51.7 million compared
to $46.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013, representing a
sequential quarterly increase of 11.6% and a decrease of 8.3% over the $56.3
million in net revenues reported in the third quarter of fiscal 2012. Net
revenues for the first nine months of fiscal 2013 were $139.3 million,
compared to $182.1 million for the same period last year, representing a
decrease of 23.5%.

The net loss on a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis for
the third quarter and for the first nine months of fiscal 2013 were $71.6
million and $116.5 million, or $(1.08) and $(1.81) per share,
respectively.This included an accrual of $51.9 million for the Veloce
acquisition in the quarter.This compares with a GAAP net loss of $7.1
million, or $(0.12) per share, and net loss of $15.1 million, or $(0.24) per
share, for the third quarter and first nine months of fiscal 2012,
respectively.

Non-GAAP loss for the third quarter and the first nine months of fiscal 2013
was $6.9 million or $(0.10) per share and $28.9 million or $(0.45) per share,
respectively, compared to non-GAAP loss of $1.1 million or $(0.02) per share
and non-GAAP net income of $0.6 million or $0.01 per diluted share for the
third quarter and first nine months of fiscal 2012, respectively.

"In the third quarter we believe wemade giant strides in our product
development efforts by taping out our 40nm ARM 64-Bit X-Gene server on a chip.
We also taped out a test chip for our upcoming 28nm product in January.While
we await final benchmarks from the actual silicon, the results from highly
correlated simulations indicate that the 40nm chip performance may far exceed
our original expectations.In fact, we believe the networking performance of
the chip suggests that we may be able to further penetrate into Enterprise
class solutions.I am also very pleased with the improvements in our base
business, reflected in continued quarter over quarter revenue growth," said
Dr. Paramesh Gopi, President and Chief Executive Officer.

Bob Gargus, Chief Financial Officer commented, "While we are very excited with
the milestones in our ARM 64-bit product strategy, we also had a very solid
quarter Company-wide and beat expectations.We feel we are making great
progress towards our goal of attaining break even on a non-GAAP basis for the
March quarter."
