"Despite weak PC demand and continuing economic uncertainty, we are pleased to
see that design wins with our new products are penetrating into higher value
market segments," said Dr. Mike Chang, CEO of AOS. "During the December
quarter, AOS has made significant strides in the smartphone market with
growing revenue at one of the world's leading manufacturers. In addition, we
have achieved design wins in numerous Ultrabook programs with our advanced
PairFET and EzBuck-II Power IC products."

"Additionally, we have been successfully penetrating into customers in the
industrial, power supply, portable and game console markets with our new
products such as XSFET, Molded Chip Scale, AlphaMOS2, AlphaIGBT and new DrMOS
series. We believe that as the new design wins come to fruition, AOS will
continue to gain strength and momentum."

Fiscal Q3, 2013 Business Outlook

The following statements are based on management's current expectations. These
statements are forward-looking, and actual results may differ materially. AOS
undertakes no obligation to update these statements.

  *Revenue is expected to be between $76 million and $80 million.
    
  *GAAP gross margin is expected to be in the range of 16% plus or minus 1%.
    
  *GAAP operating expense is expected to be in the range of $15 million to
    $16 million.

The above projection includes estimated share-based compensation expense of
$1.2 million.

"While we continue to take actions to realign our cost structure due to the
challenging business environment, including the reduction of capital spending
and operating expense, we will persist in looking for ways to streamline our
operations and optimize our business model," said Dr. Mike Chang, CEO of
AOS."We expect our reduced factory loading at both our front-end and back-end
to negatively impact our margins in the short term.However we continue to be
optimistic about our business opportunity beyond the March quarter supported
by increasing design wins, bookings and backlog.During the March quarter we
are keenly focused on tightly aligning the front-end and back-end capabilities
to further improve our efficiencies throughout the company."

Conference Call and Webcast

AOS plans to conduct an investor teleconference and live webcast to discuss
the financial results for the second quarter ended December 31, 2012 today,

Forward Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements that are based on
current expectations, estimates, forecasts and projections of future
performance based on management's judgment, beliefs, current trends, and
anticipated product performance. These forward looking statements include,
without limitation, projected amount of revenues, gross margin, operating
expenses, operating income, net income, share-based compensation expenses,
expectation with respect to the macroeconomic conditions, our ability to
achieve profitability, our ability to accelerate technology and product
development, expectation with respect to new market opportunities and design
wins for our products and other information under the section entitled "Fiscal
Q3, 2013 Business Outlook". Forward looking statements involve risks and
uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from those
contained in the forward-looking statements. These factors include, but are
not limited to, our ability to introduce or develop new and enhanced products
that achieve market acceptance; the actual product performance in volume
production, the quality and reliability of our product, our ability to achieve
design wins, the general business and economic conditions, the state of
semiconductor industry and seasonality of our markets, and other risks as
described in our SEC filings, including our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the
fiscal year ended June 30, 2012 filed on August 31, 2012.Other unknown or
unpredictable factors or underlying assumptions subsequently proving to be
incorrect could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the
forward-looking statements. Although we believe that the expectations
reflected in the forward looking statements are reasonable, we cannot
guarantee future results, level of activity, performance, or achievements. You
should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. All
information provided in this press release is as of today's date, unless
otherwise stated, and AOS undertakes no duty to update such information,
except as required under applicable law.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our unaudited consolidated financial statements presented on a
basis consistent with the U.S. GAAP, we disclose certain non-GAAP financial
measures, including non-GAAP gross margin, operating income, net income and
diluted earnings per share ("EPS"). These supplemental measures exclude
share-based compensation expenses that are non-cash charges and costs incurred
for our U.S. GAAP conversion. We believe that non-GAAP financial measures can
provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding
certain non-cash and non-recurring expenses that are not indicative of our
core operating results. In addition, our management uses non-GAAP measures to
compare our performance relative to forecasts and to benchmark our performance
externally against competitors. Our use of non-GAAP financial measures has
certain limitations in that the non-GAAP financial measures we use may not be
directly comparable to those reported by other companies.For example, the
term used in this press release, non-GAAP net income, does not have a
standardized meaning. Other companies may use the same or similarly named
measures, but exclude different items, which may not provide investors with a
comparable view of our performance in relation to other companies. We seek to
compensate for this limitation by providing a detailed reconciliation of the
non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures
in the tables attached to this press release. Investors are encouraged to
review the related U.S. GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of
these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable U.S. GAAP
financial measures.
