  MEMSIC Announces First-Quarter 2013 Results

Business Wire

ANDOVER, Mass. -- May 13, 2013

MEMSIC, Inc. (NasdaqGM: MEMS), a leading MEMS sensing solution provider, today
announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013.

  *Net sales totaled $11.4 million compared to $20.0 million in the 2012
  *Gross margin was 36.4% compared to 37.1% in the 2012 quarter.
  *Operating expenses totaled $6.8 million compared to $6.2 million in the
    2012 quarter.
  *GAAP net loss was $2.5 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, compared to
    net income of $1.2 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, in the 2012
  *EBITDA was ($1.3) million compared to $2.5 million in the 2012 quarter.

MEMSIC Chairman, President and CEO Dr. Yang Zhao commented, “Our results for
the quarter were within the guidance range we previously provided. During the
period, we made additional progress with our strategy to capitalize on the
large China mobile market. Our ongoing penetration of that market helped
mitigate the impact of reduced shipments to a large mobile customer. Our sales
to that customer peaked in the first quarter of 2012, affecting our
quarter-over-quarter comparisons. In addition, we remain focused on using
MEMSIC’s cutting-edge technology to develop high-performance products for the
industrial and automotive markets.”

In light of MEMSIC’s pending acquisition by IDG-Accel China Capital II, L.P.
and its affiliates, announced on April 23, 22013, MEMSIC will not conduct a
conference call to review its first-quarter 2013 financial results.

About Non-GAAP Financial Information

EBITDA is a measure used by management to evaluate the Company’s ongoing
operations and as a general indicator of its operating cash flow (in
conjunction with a cash flow statement that also includes, among other items,
changes in working capital and the effect of non-cash charges). The Company
defines EBITDA as net income, plus interest expense net of interest income,
provision for income taxes, and depreciation and amortization. Management
believes EBITDA is useful to investors because it is frequently used by
securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the comparative
evaluation of companies. Because not all companies use identical calculations,
the Company's presentation of EBITDA and EBITDA per share may not be
comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. EBITDA is not a
recognized term under GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to net
income as a measure of operating performance or to cash flows from operating
activities as a measure of liquidity. Additionally, EBITDA is not intended to
be a measure of free cash flow for management's discretionary use as it does
not reflect certain cash requirements such as interest payments, tax payments
and debt service requirements.

Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, we have provided a
reconciliation of EBITDA to GAAP net income as an exhibit to this release.
