SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Monolithic Power Systems (MPS) (Nasdaq: MPWR), a leading fabless manufacturer of high-performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, today announced updated revenue guidance for the third fiscal quarter ending September 30, 2011.
Based on the current demand outlook, the company expects its third quarter revenues to be in the range of $52 to $54 million.
"The economy is slowing down considerably," said Michael Hsing, chief executive officer and founder of MPS. "We are slowing down channel inventory to reflect the uncertain business climate."
No conference call will be held in conjunction with this business update. Additional commentary pertaining to this quarter will be available when the company reports its third quarter 2011 results.Safe Harbor Statement This press release contains forward-looking statements, as that term is defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including, among other things, projected revenues, and demand outlook and market conditions for the quarter ending September 30, 2011. These forward-looking statements are not historical facts or guarantees of future performance or events, are based on current expectations, estimates, beliefs, assumptions, goals, and objectives, and involve significant known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results to be materially different from the results expressed by these statements. Readers of this press release are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof. Current uncertainty in global economic conditions poses a risk to the overall economy as consumers and businesses may defer purchases in response to tighter credit and negative financial news, which could adversely affect product demand. Consequently, demand could be different from MPS' expectations due to changes in business and economic conditions, including conditions in the credit market that could affect consumer confidence; changes in order patterns including order cancellations; and changes in the level of inventory at customers. Other factors that could cause actual results to differ include, but are not limited to, our ability to attract new customers and retain existing customers; acceptance of, or demand for, MPS' products, in particular the new products launched within the past 18 months, being different than expected; competition generally and the increasingly competitive nature of our industry; any market disruptions or interruptions in MPS' schedule of new product release development; adverse changes in production and testing efficiency of our products; adverse changes in government regulations in foreign countries where MPS has offices or operations; the effect of catastrophic events; adequate supply of our products from our third-party manufacturer; the risks, uncertainties and costs of litigation in which the Company is involved; the outcome of any upcoming trials, hearings, motions and appeals; the adverse impact on MPS' financial performance if its tax and litigation provisions are inadequate; adverse changes or developments in the semiconductor industry generally; difficulty in predicting or budgeting for future customer demand and channel inventories, expenses and financial contingencies; and other important risk factors identified in MPS' SEC filings, including, but not limited to, its Form 10-K filed on March 4, 2011 and its Form 10-Q filed on April 28, 2011. The forward-looking statements in this press release represent MPS' projections and current expectations, as of the date hereof, not predictions of actual performance. MPS assumes no obligation to update the information in this press release or in the accompanying conference call.
