NetLogic Microsystems Wins The 2011 Most Respected Emerging Public Semiconductor Company Award For Third Consecutive Year

Stocks in this article: NETL

NetLogic Microsystems, Inc. (NASDAQ:NETL), a worldwide leader in high-performance intelligent semiconductor solutions for next-generation Internet networks, today announced that it has received the distinguished 2011 Most Respected Emerging Public Semiconductor Company Award for the third consecutive year from the Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA). NetLogic Microsystems was recognized by its industry peers, customers, partners and the GSA as the most respected public semiconductor company with revenue up to $500 million.

GSA’s Most Respected Emerging Public Semiconductor Company award is designed to identify the company garnering the most respect of the industry in terms of its products, vision and future opportunities. The GSA has considered numerous factors for the awards, including the profitability, market capitalization, financial and product successes, demonstrated performance and likelihood of long-term success. In addition, the GSA invited members of the semiconductor community, including semiconductor companies, customers and partners, to cast ballots for the public semiconductor company they respect the most.

NetLogic Microsystems’ president and chief executive officer, Ron Jankov, accepted the honorable award at last week’s GSA Awards Dinner in Santa Clara, Calif. In addition to naming NetLogic Microsystems as the Most Respected Public Semiconductor Company in the $500 million category, the GSA awarded Broadcom Corporation, which has entered into a definitive merger agreement to acquire NetLogic Microsystems, with the Most Respected Company recognition in the $500 million - $10 billion category. The GSA also bestowed the Dr. Morris Chang Exemplary Leadership Award to Dr. Henry Samueli, co-founder of Broadcom Corporation.

“We congratulate NetLogic Microsystems for a third consecutive win of GSA’s Most Respected Emerging Public Semiconductor Company award,” said Jodi Shelton, co-founder and president of the GSA. “The GSA Most Respected Public Company Awards are presented to companies who are truly exceptional and are exemplary to their industry peers. For NetLogic Microsystems to have won for the third consecutive year is a testament to its continued success in overall execution, engineering excellence and impressive financial performance.”
