  Global-Tech Advanced Innovations Announces Fiscal 2013 Results

Business Wire

HONG KONG -- July 23, 2013

Global-Tech Advanced Innovations Inc. (NASDAQ: GAI) today announced its
financial results for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2013.

Net sales for fiscal 2013 were $81.1 million, an increase of approximately
16.4% when compared to net sales of $69.7 million in fiscal 2012. Net loss for
fiscal 2013 was $2.0 million, or $0.65 per share, compared to a net income of
$1.4 million, or $0.46 per share, in fiscal 2012.

Net sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 were $13.9 million, compared
to $15.5 million in the corresponding period in fiscal 2012. Net loss for the
fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 was $2.3 million, or $0.75 per share, compared
to a net loss of $1.5 million, or $0.51 per share, for the corresponding
quarter in fiscal 2012.

Despite incurring losses in fiscal 2013, the Company’s cash flow remained
positive as our net cash position increased approximately $1.9 million to
$42.2 million, primarily due to a significant reduction in accounts
receivables, partially offset by capital expenditures. Net cash (a non-GAAP
measure) is defined as cash and cash equivalents plus restricted cash less
short-term debt (a GAAP reconciliation has been provided below). In providing
our net cash position, we believe our shareholders, as well as potential
investors, gain a better understanding of the Company’s potential for future
growth and are better able to assess the Company’s financial strength and
available resources.

SG&A expenses in fiscal 2013 did not increase materially from fiscal 2012 when
discontinued operations are included and most of the increase was due to
exchange rate appreciation of the Renminbi against the U.S. dollar.

John C.K. Sham, the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer, said:
“The Company’s fourth quarter continues to be our weakest quarter, due at
least in part to business disruptions relating to the Chinese New Year. Rising
labor costs coupled with labor shortages in southern China negatively impacted
our operating results. The developing slowdown in the Chinese economy also
adversely impacted our business, most significantly in our EMS segment.”

Mr. Sham continued, “We are striving to address these and other cost issues,
including certain manufacturing costs previously absorbed by our home
appliance business prior to its discontinuation in January 2012. As part of
these efforts, we have started to lease some of the unused space in our
manufacturing facility that was previously occupied by our home appliance
business. However, we do not expect our efforts to adjust our cost structure
will have a material impact on our operating results until the second or third
quarter of fiscal 2014, at which time we believe we will return to
profitability. Until such time we expect our net cash position to continue to
remain strong.”

Mr. Sham concluded, “As previously disclosed, the expansion of our CCM
production capacity through the installation of three chip-on-board (COB)
production lines and a Class 10 clean room was recently completed. We are
pleased to report that our CCM business has started receiving orders that
require the use of our new COB production lines. Since COB production lines
are capable of producing higher-pixel camera modules and other
precision-related devices, we believe that our CCM business will continue to
grow through the addition of new customers and the sale of higher profit
margin products. As such, we are cautiously optimistic about the growth
opportunities of our CCM business and expect our CCM sales to increase and
profitability in this business segment to gradually improve in the coming
