Improve Operational Efficiencies

SAN DIEGO, July 2, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Entropic (Nasdaq:ENTR), a world
leader in semiconductor solutions for the connected home, today narrowed its
previously announced financial guidance for the second quarter of 2013 to the
low end of the revenue range. Entropic now expects revenue of approximately

reduction in force of approximately 70 employees, constituting approximately
10 percent of Entropic's global workforce.Once fully implemented, Entropic
estimates that the full annualized costs associated with the 70 employees will
be approximately $9 million.Entropic has plans to reinvest these savings in
the development of new products and programs.

efficiencies, optimize business operations and align our investments with key
vertical market requirements," said Patrick Henry, president and chief
executive officer, Entropic. "It also gives us an opportunity to increase
investment in strategic areas with more long-term growth potential, including
analog mixed-signal and software."

million in connection with this restructuring plan, the majority of which will
be recorded during the second quarter of 2013.
