  Mindspeed Updates Outlook for Fiscal Second Quarter 2013

Business Wire

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. -- April 03, 2013

Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSPD), a leading supplier of
semiconductor solutions for network infrastructure applications, today updated
its revenue outlook for the fiscal second quarter of 2013 previously provided
on January 28, 2013. For the fiscal second quarter, ended March 29, 2013,
Mindspeed now expects total net product revenue to be approximately $35.1 to
$35.5 million. Management’s prior outlook was for total net product revenue to
be approximately flat to up or down 2% versus total net product revenue in the
fiscal first quarter of 2013 of $38.4 million. The revenue shortfall is
primarily attributed to slower than expected deployments of 3G small cell base
stations, with wireless infrastructure revenue expected to be approximately
$2.6 to $2.7 million in the fiscal second quarter of 2013. Revenue from 4G/LTE
small cell base stations, however, is expected to approximately double in the
fiscal second quarter of 2013 versus the prior quarter.

For the fiscal second quarter of 2013, Mindspeed continues to forecast its
non-GAAP gross margin to be approximately 60-61 percent and non-GAAP operating
expenses to be approximately $22 million.

Based on early indications, Mindspeed anticipates total net product revenue
for the fiscal third quarter of 2013 will be approximately flat versus the
fiscal second quarter of 2013. Management also forecasts wireless
infrastructure revenue will be approximately flat in the third quarter of
fiscal 2013 versus the second quarter of fiscal 2013.

Mindspeed will report its fiscal second quarter 2013 results and a more
detailed forward outlook on April 30, 2013, after the market closes.
